Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

Patriots DL Deatrich Wise (ankle), S Kyle Dugger (ankle) and CB Jack Jones (illness) are active for today's game against the Colts.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (illness) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Colts. RB Kevin Harris is a healthy scratch, leaving RBs Pierre Strong and J.J. Taylor behind workhorse Rhamondre Stevenson.

ESPN's Adam Schefter calls Patriots RB Damien Harris "unlikely" to play vs. the Colts today due to his illness. It's a bit of a surprise after Harris was able to return to a limited practice on Friday -- but Schefter almost never misses on these early-Sunday reports. Harris' absence would put RB Rhamondre Stevenson back in a workhorse role. He racked up 19 carries and 5 targets when Harris missed Week 6.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (illness) is questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Colts after getting in just a limited practice on Friday. We’re expecting him to play on Sunday, but it’s certainly possible that his volume and/or effectiveness is impacted. Harris is a TD-dependent fantasy play. Rhamondre Stevenson should lead the backfield in touches again.

Patriots WR DeVante Parker (knee) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Colts. That leaves Jakobi Meyers, Tyquan Thornton, Kendrick Bourne and Nelson Agholor as New England’s top 4 WRs. Meyers is the only bankable Week 9 fantasy play.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (illness) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. Players almost always play through illnesses -- but we just saw Raiders WR Davante Adams struggle playing through the flu last week. We'll get another update on Harris tomorrow.

Patriots WR DeVante Parker suffered "just a knee sprain" in Sunday's win over the Jets, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "If he misses time, it'll likely only be one game," Rapoport adds. "Could be back after the [Week 10] bye." We'll track Parker's status throughout the week, leading up to Sunday's game vs. the Colts.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson continued to work well ahead of Damien Harris in Sunday's win over the Jets. He carried 16 times for 71 yards (4.4 per rush) and caught 7 balls for 72 yards among 8 targets. Stevenson led the team in receiving yards and trailed only WR Jakobi Meyers in targets (12) and receptions (9). Harris ran for just 37 yards on 11 carries (3.4) and caught both of his targets for 15 yards. New England gets the Colts in Week 9, with the bye following.

Patriots WR DeVante Parker hurt his right knee in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Jets and is officially questionable to return. We'll update his status when we know more.

Patriots S Adrian Phillips (shoulder) and CB Jonathan Jones (ankle) are active for today's game against the Jets.

The Patriots on Saturday downgraded S Kyle Dugger (ankle) to out for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Patriots S Kyle Dugger (ankle), S Adrian Phillips (shoulder) and CB Jonathan Jones (ankle) are questionable vs. the Jets. Dugger looks like the poorest bet among them after managing just a single limited practice Friday. The other 2 put in limited work every day this week. New England ruled DT Christian Barmore (knee) out for the game.

NFL Network's Mike Giardi reports that Patriots QB Mac Jones is dealing with numbness in the toes on his left foot as he continues to recover from his high-ankle sprain. It didn't impact Jones' on-field prep for the Jets this week, per Giardi, but it's safe to say that Jones still isn't at 100%. He shouldn't be in Week 8 fantasy lineups.

ESPN's Field Yates reports that Patriots QB Mac Jones will start Sunday's game against the Jets. Jones took "about 90%" of the 1st-team reps in Wednesday's practice, Yates adds. Jones was yanked from Monday night's loss to the Bears after going 3-of-6 for 13 yards and an INT. But QB Bailey Zappe managed just 185 yards with 1 TD and 2 INTs the rest of the way. We'd expect Jones to remain New England' starter for the remains of the season, unless he really flops. He's just a QB2 in fantasy football.

The Patriots replaced QB Mac Jones with Bailey Zappe early in the 2nd quarter of Monday night's game against the Bears. The New England offense had started slowly but drove for TDs on each of the 1st 2 Zappe-led possessions. Jones' hadn't been showing ill effects from the high-ankle sprain that cost him the previous 3 games. He even ran for 24 yards before leaving. We'll see how this situation plays out.

Patriots DT Christian Barmore (knee) is inactive for tonight's game against the Bears. DE Lawrence Guy (shoulder), CB Jonathan Jones (ankle) and DB Jalen Mills (illness) are active.

Patriots WR Kendrick Bourne (toe) is inactive for tonight's game with the Bears. This doesn't have much fantasy impact but does, at least, leave a few WR snaps on the field for others.

Patriots QB Mac Jones (ankle) is active and expected to start tonight's game against the Bears, though the team website says "several reports indicate that rookie Bailey Zappe could also take snaps." If you're using Jones in a season-long lineup, then that shouldn't change anything. But have that in mind as you weigh DFS showdown options. Even if Zappe doesn't play, any concern for Jones' recovering ankle could motivate more rushing lean for the New England offense.

Patriots WR Nelson Agholor (hamstring) is active for tonight's game against the Bears. WR Kendrick Bourne (toe) is inactive. We're expecting Agholor to serve as the #4 WR behind Jakobi Meyers, DeVante Parker and Tyquan Thornton.

Patriots QB Mac Jones (ankle) is "on track" to start Monday night's game vs. the Bears, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jones took the "bulk" of the 1st-team reps in Saturday's practice, per Rapoport. Jones was struggling before going down with that high-ankle sprain in Week 3, and it figures to be a run-heavy attack from New England on Monday night. That leaves Jones as a weak QB2.
