Shark Bites for Braxton Berrios | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Braxton Berrios Fantasy Football News 2019

The Patriots are placing rookie WR Braxton Berrios on IR, meaning he's out for the season, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The most recent reports on Berrios indicated no serious injury, so this just looks like a way to stash a guy who wasn't headed for a meaningful 2018 role. The fact that New England doesn't want to cut Berrios loose, however, makes him worth considering as a dynasty stash.

The Patriots have released WR Jordan Matthews. That didn't take long. After reportedly impressing in spring workouts, Matthews suffered a significant hamstring injury in Sunday's camp practice. We'll see if and when he resurfaces, but he's obviously off the redraft radar now. New England is left with Kenny Britt, Phillip Dorsett, Cordarrelle Patterson and rookie Braxton Berrios behind Chris Hogan and the suspended Julian Edelman. Malcolm Mitchell remains sidelined with his knee issue.

Update: New England ended up placing Matthews (hamstring) on IR. He'll likely end up being released with an injury settlement.
