The Patriots did not activate RB J.J. Taylor from the practice squad for tonight's game vs. the Bills. That leaves rookies Pierre Strong and Kevin Harris behind lead back Rhamondre Stevenson, with Damien Harris (thigh) out. Strong and Harris, of course, are only worth considering in 1-game DFS contests.

6:49pm EST 12/1/22

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (shoulder) is active for tonight's game vs. the Bills. There have been no reports of his snaps being limited, but there's at least some risk that he aggravates that shoulder injury. See where Meyers sits in the Week 13 WR Rankings.

The Patriots list WR Jakobi Meyers (shoulder) as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Bills. He was limited in practice all week. Meyers was able to battle through this injury on Thanksgiving but wound up playing just 29% of New England's offensive snaps. We're expecting Meyers to play tomorrow, but he'll carry elevated risk in Week 13 fantasy lineups.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (thigh) is out for Thursday night's game vs. the Bills. That figures to leave RB Rhamondre Stevenson in a workhorse role. He's averaged 15.4 carries and 6.4 targets in the 5 games that Harris missed all or most of this season.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (shoulder) got in a limited practice on Tuesday. He was able to return for limited snaps after hurting that shoulder very early in last Thursday night's game vs. the Vikings, finishing with 3 catches on 4 targets for 62 yards. Meyers will carry elevated risk in fantasy lineups if he plays vs. the Bills this Thursday night.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (thigh) did not practice on Tuesday. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said yesterday that Harris is not expected to play against the Bills on Thursday night. That'd leave RB Rhamondre Stevenson in a workhorse role. He checks in as a top-4 RB across scoring formats in the Week 13 Rankings.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Patriots RB Damien Harris isn't expected to play Thursday night against the Bills because of the thigh injury that knocked him out of the Thanksgiving night game. His absence would make Rhamondre Stevenson the clear backfield leader. Rookies Pierre Strong and Kevin Harris are the only other RBs on the active roster, with J.J. Taylor a candidate for elevation from the practice squad.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers injured his right shoulder on the team's 1st offensive play in Thursday night's game vs. the Vikings. He got an x-ray in the locker room but returned to play limited snaps in the 2nd half. “Sore,” Meyers said of the shoulder afterward. “I’ll be alright though... It started to feel better as the game went on.” It sounds like Meyers will be able to play through this issue, but we'll keep an eye on him when the Patriots get back to work next week.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers hurt his right shoulder on the 1st play of Thursday night's loss to the Vikings. He missed the rest of the 1st half getting it evaluated but was able to return in the 2nd for limited playing time. Meyers wound up playing just 16 snaps for the game but caught 3 balls for 62 yards among 4 targets. Meyers said after the game that his shoulder was sore but felt better as the game wore on and would be "alright" going forward, according to Masslive.com's Chris Mason. Next up is a home date with Buffalo next Thursday night.

Patriots QB Mac Jones racked up 382 yards on 28-of-39 passing in Thursday night's loss to the Vikings. He found WR Nelson Agholor and TE Hunter Henry for TDs. Jones nearly added a 3rd in the 3rd quarter, but Henry lost control of the ball as he went to the ground. Jones targeted RB Rhamondre Stevenson (10) and WR Nelson Agholor (8) most often. Agholor set a season high in targets and matched his top mark of the year in receptions. Jones beat his career high in yards by 61, hitting 300 for the 2nd time this season. He gets the 6th-best remaining schedule for QB scoring by our adjusted fantasy points allowed -- tops in the league from Week 14 on.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson carried just 7 times (for 36 yards) as his team went pass-heavy in Thursday night's loss to the Vikings. He made up for it on the receiving side, though, catching 9 balls for 76 yards among a team-high 10 targets. New England dropped back 42 times in the game vs. just 13 running plays. We'd bet on that swinging back in the other direction at least some in a Week 13 home date with the Bills. We'll see about the status of RB Damien Harris for that one, after he left the Vikings loss with a thigh injury.

Patriots RB Damien Harris suffered a thigh injury in Thursday night's game against the Vikings and has been ruled out. We'll see about his outlook heading into Week 13.

Patriots WR DeVante Parker (knee) is active for tonight's game against the Vikings. He played just 40% of snaps last week, though, and remained limited in practice this week. Parker also garnered just 2 targets in that contest. He's not much of a fantasy option tonight.

Patriots WR DeVante Parker (knee) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Vikings. He was limited in practice all week after returning to last Sunday's game, so Parker should be available for this one. But he played just 40% of the snaps last week, making him a shaky option even in Thanksgiving DFS contests.

Pats RB Rhamondre Stevenson was upstaged by Damien Harris in a Week 11 win over the Jets. Harris rushed 8 times for 65 yards, topping Stevenson’s 26 yards on 15 attempts. Sunday marked Harris’ first action since Week 8 (illness). But he certainly looked healthy in this one, earning PFF’s 4th highest rushing grade. Stevenson, meanwhile, ranked 2nd to last, hurt by 0 missed tackles forced on the ground and 1.7 YPC. Stevenson still came through in fantasy with 6 grabs for 56 yards, including 1 impressive display of power. It’s worth noting that the Jets represented a tough matchup for RBs. Thursday turns up a Vikings squad that was just smoked by Dallas RBs. On the year, Minnesota ranks mid-pack in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs.

11:35am EST 11/20/22

Patriots WR DeVante Parker (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Jets. He’s popped for a few viable fantasy outings this season but hasn’t been a reliable play. Parker shouldn’t be in Week 11 season-long lineups.

Patriots WR DeVante Parker (knee) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Jets. Still not at 100% and in a tough matchup, Parker shouldn’t be in your Week 11 fantasy plans.

Patriots WR DeVante Parker (knee) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. That gives him a shot to return for this weekend's game vs. the Jets. Parker has been sidelined since the 1st game vs. the Jets back in Week 8.

The Patriots threw for just 147 yards in Sunday's win over the Colts. QB Mac Jones completed a decent 66.7% of passes but averaged just 4.9 yards per attempt. WR Jakobi Meyers caught 5 of 6 targets but managed a mere 42 yards. TE Hunter Henry caught all 4 of his targets for 50 yards. RB Rhamondre Stevenson led the team with 7 targets and claimed Jones' sole TD pass. New England gets a Week 10 bye.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson got no meaningful boost from Damien Harris being out (illness) in Sunday's win over the Colts. Stevenson rushed 15 times for 60 yards and added 3 catches for 10 among a team-high 7 targets. He did claim the team's only TD reception. RB J.J. Taylor ran 2nd in the backfield, gaining just 9 yards on 10 carries and catching his lone target for 8 yards.
