ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Patriots are signing CB Malcolm Butler to a 2-year deal that could be worth up to $9 million. The money suggests they hope Butler can start for them but doesn't necessarily lock him into their top 3 at the position. Butler missed last season after "retiring" but has clearly been inspired by Tom Brady. When active, Butler is capable of delivering useful IDP numbers -- at least in part because QBs like to throw at him.

The Patriots are trading EDGE Chase Winovich to the Browns for LB Mack Wilson. The move gives Winovich a fresh start in a scheme that should return DE eligibility for fantasy football leagues. Wilson's situation doesn't obviously improve, but he clearly wasn't heading for a primary role in Cleveland.

Patriots S Adrian Phillips (knee) and DT Christian Barmore (knee) are active for today's game against the Dolphins, after entering the day questionable. LB Dont'a Hightower is inactive with his own knee injury.

Patriots S Adrian Phillips sustained a wrist injury in Sunday's win over the Jaguars. We'll see about his status for Week 18.

Patriots S Kyle Dugger (hamstring), S Adrian Phillips (knee, illness) and CB J.C. Jackson (elbow) are active for today's game against the Jaguars. All arrived questionable but should be ready for IDP use at their appropriate levels.

The Patriots on Saturday activated LB Ja'Whaun Bentley and edge Matt Judon from the COVID list. That should make each available for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Patriots S Adrian Phillips (knee, illness) and CB J.C. Jackson (elbow) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

The Patriots on Monday placed EDGE Matt Judon and LB Ja'Whaun Bentley on the COVID list. We'll see whether either can make it back onto the active roster -- and into IDP lineup contention -- ahead of Sunday's game against Jacksonville.

Patriots S Adrian Phillips (knee) is active for today's game with the Bills. He arrives as a nice upside IDP play. DT Christian Barmore (knee) and LB Ja'Whaun Bentley (ribs, ankle) are also active after arriving questionable.

Patriots LB Ja'Whaun Bentley left Saturday night's loss to the Colts early with an ankle injury and did not return. He had been dealing with a rib injury for a while that rendered Bentley questionable (at least by Patriots standards) for a string of games. We'll see about his Week 16 outlook, but this is probably enough to knock Bentley out of consideration in most IDP leagues.

Patriots S Kyle Dugger -- who landed on the COVID list midweek -- will not be activated in time to face the Bills tonight. That figures to boost the playing time for S Adrian Phillips. Slot CB Myles Bryant could play additional snaps as well. If you're in a pinch for an IDP fill-in, Bills CB Dane Jackson is an option. He'll be starting in place of Tre'Davious White, who suffered an ACL tear Thanksgiving night. Don't be surprised if the Patriots test him -- if the wind allows.

Patriots LB Ja'Whaun Bentley (ribs), LB Dont'a Hightower (ankle), LB Kyle Van Noy (groin) and DB Jalen Mills (thigh) are active for today's game against the Browns. They arrived questionable but have played through questionable tags for weeks.
