Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (knee) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Browns. He was in the same boat last week before posting a 7-111-1 line on an 80% snap rate. Meyers should be fine for this weekend's game, but check back around 11:30 am ET to make sure he's active.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Browns after a limited week of practice. All signs point to Harris missing this game – including New England’s move to elevate RB Kevin Harris from the practice squad. We’ll get the Patriots’ inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.

Patriots QB Mac Jones (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Browns. That's an upgrade from last week, when Jones was doubtful. We're still projecting QB Bailey Zappe to get another start this weekend, but we should get another update on the situation on Sunday morning.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (hamstring) was again listed as a limited participant in Thursday's practice. New England called up RB Kevin Harris from the practice squad earlier today, which is a good sign that Damien Harris won't be available for this weekend's game vs. the Browns.

Patriots QB Mac Jones (ankle) was again limited in Wednesday's practice. He was limited all last week before missing the Lions game, so this doesn't tell us much about his status for Sunday's game vs. the Browns. We'll get another update tomorrow.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (hamstring) was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. It's a surprise after NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said earlier this week that Harris is “likely to miss multiple games.” We still wouldn't plan on having him in Week 6 fantasy lineups, but we'll continue to keep tabs on his status leading up to Sunday's game vs. the Browns.

NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero tweeted Tuesday that Pats RB Damien Harris (hamstring) is “likely to miss multiple games.” Rhamondre Stevenson stepped up with 27 touches last Sunday against Detroit and will remain busy in Week 6 at Cleveland. The Browns field one of the league’s worst run defenses.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers returned from 2 games missed with a knee sprain to rack up a 7-111-1 receiving line in Sunday's win over the Lions. He drew a team-high 8 targets (38.1% of team pass attempts), as rookie QB Bailey Zappe filled in for Mac Jones Zappe proved efficient, completing 17 of 21 passes for 188 yards (8.95 per attempt). Meyers has now drawn a target on 31.4% of Patriots pass attempts. He looks like at least a weekly WR3 for PPR lineups going forward.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson took advantage of a league-worst Lions run defense and Damien Harris' early hamstring injury to deliver a big rushing line Sunday: 25 carries, 161 yards. He also caught both targets for 14 yards. Stevenson would obviously be set up for another workhorse role in another upside matchup at Cleveland in Week 6, if Harris isn't ready to return. Ty Montgomery is eligible to come off IR, but HC Bill Belichick said he doesn't expect Montgomery to be ready to practice this week.

Patriots RB Damien Harris suffered a hamstring injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. the Lions and is officially questionable to return. Rhamondre Stevenson is the only other available RB for New England. We'll update Harris' status when we know more.

Update: Harris has been ruled out.

11:39am EDT 10/9/22

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Lions. It’s a plus matchup. But, between the knee that limited him in practice all week and a rookie QB making his 1st career start, Meyers would be a risky Week 5 fantasy play.

Patriots S Kyle Dugger (knee) and CB Jalen Mills (hamstring) are active for today's game against the Lions.

11:38am EDT 10/9/22

Patriots TE Jonnu Smith (ankle) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Lions. That should mean more routes for TE Hunter Henry, but he’s still tough to trust in fantasy lineups.

11:38am EDT 10/9/22

Patriots QB Mac Jones (ankle) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Lions. 4th-round rookie QB Bailey Zappe makes his 1st career start. Expect a run-heavy game plan from New England.

The Patriots activated WR Tyquan Thornton (collarbone) from IR. The rookie broke his collarbone in mid-August and just returned to practice this week. Don't expect him to play a big role in Sunday's game vs. the Lions, but we'll keep an eye on his development.

Patriots DL Lawrence Guy (shoulder) is out for Sunday's game against the Lions. S Kyle Dugger (knee), CB Jalen Mills (hamstring) and S Adrian Phillips (ribs) are questionable.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (knee) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Lions. It’s an excellent matchup, but at less than 100% and with Bailey Zappe under center, Meyers would be a shaky fantasy play.

Patriots TE Jonnu Smith (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game vs. the Lions. That’s theoretically good news for TE Hunter Henry, but he hasn’t done nearly enough early this season to be a bankable Week 5 fantasy play.

Patriots QB Mac Jones (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game vs. the Lions. He got in 3 limited practices this week, so a Week 6 return looks possible. QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) was placed on IR, so it’ll be 4th-round rookie Bailey Zappe under center for New England this weekend.

Patriots QB Mac Jones (ankle) remained limited in Thursday's practice. QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) was placed on IR, knocking him out for at least the next 4 games. That means it'll be Bailey Zappe under center for New England this weekend if Jones can't go.
