Shark Bites

Patriots DE Lawrence Guy, S Devin McCourty, LB Ja'Whaun Bentley, DT Adam Butler and CB J.C. Jackson are all active for today's finale against the Jets after entering the day questionable.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (ankle) is out for Sunday's finale vs. the Jets. Sony Michel gets another game as lead back -- a role that's fed him 20 carries and 1 target over the past 2 weeks.

Patriots LB Ja'Whaun Bentley (shoulder) and DE Lawrence Guy (shoulder) are inactive for tonight's game against the Bills. Questionable defenders CB Jonathan Jones (neck), CB J.C. Jackson (knee), DE John Simon (hamstring) and DT Adam Butler (shoulder) are active.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (ankle) is inactive for tonight's game against the Bills. Sony Michel will continue operating as New England's lead back.

The Patriots aren't expected to activate WR Julian Edelman for tonight's game against the Bills, and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that it's "unlikely" he returns for Week 17. We'll see whether that means the end of the 34-year-old's career. New England will close out the year with Jakobi Meyers, Damiere Byrd and N'Keal Harry as its top 3 wideouts.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (ankle) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Monday night's game vs. the Bills. He was in the same boat last week and ended up inactive. Unless you own both Harris and Sony Michel, we'd avoid the Patriots backfield in Week 16 fantasy lineups.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (ankle) has put in 2 limited practices so far this week. We’ll see what he does on Saturday and how he’s listed on the final injury report for Monday night’s game vs. the Bills. Sony Michel operated as New England’s lead back with Harris out last week.

Patriots LB Ja'Whaun Bentley left Sunday's loss to the Dolphins early with an arm injury. In his absence, Terez Hall stepped in for 13 tackles (12 solo). We'll see about Bentley's status heading into next Monday night's game against the Bills. Given that it's the Patriots, though, we wouldn't expect a whole lot of info. New England also watched DE John Simon (hamstring) and CB Stephon Gilmore (leg) leave the Miami game with injuries. We'll see about them for Week 16. Neither has been an IDP worth waiting for, though Gilmore could see an uptick in opportunity volume for the Buffalo matchup.

Patriots DE Lawrence Guy, DT Adam Butler, CB J.C. Jackson and CB Jonathan Jones are all active vs. Miami after entering the day questionable. None is a strong IDP option, but all are available in case you play in a deep league.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (ankle) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. That puts RB Sony Michel back in the lead ball-carrying role -- although he averaged just 8.7 carries per game in that spot over the first 3 weeks of the season. He's just a RB3 or flex play.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Dolphins. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and limited in the final 2 practices of the week. We’re expecting Harris to play, but check back at noon ET on Sunday to make sure he’s active.

Patriots RB Damien Harris isn't listed on the Week 15 injury report. He appeared to get banged up late in Thursday night's loss to the Rams, but he's evidently fine for this weekend's game vs. Miami. The rookie should remain New England's lead back in that one.

Patriots QB Cam Newton was benched in the 4th quarter of Thursday night's loss to the Rams, finishing with 119 scoreless yards and a pick-6 on 9-of-16 passing. HC Bill Belichick said afterwards, though, that Newton remains the starter going forward. Frankly, the Pats don't have a better option. While Newton's arm isn't what it used to be, New England's lack of weapons is the much bigger problem Cam has now fallen short of 120 passing yards in 3 straight games and 4 of his last 5. Only his rushing ability makes him a QB2 the rest of the way.

Patriots LB Ja'Whaun Bentley (groin) and DB Kyle Dugger (toe) are active for today's game against the Chargers. Both arrived questionable but should be good to use at normal levels.

Patriots WR Julian Edelman has been placed on the COVID list. He's been out since Week 7 and remains on IR with his knee injury. You can continue to ignore him in fantasy football.

Patriots LB Ja'Whaun Bentley (groin), DB Kyle Dugger (toe) and CB Stephon Gilmore (hand) are active for today's game against the Cardinals. Each hit the day questionable. None is a strong IDP candidate, but they're available if you've had them in your plans.

Patriots RB Sony Michel (quad) will play against the Cardinals today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It'll be Michel's 1st action since Week 3. Rapoport says Michel is expected to "split carries" with Damien Harris -- but adds that Harris will remain the "bell cow." Ok then. We still like Harris as a RB2 today and will monitor Michel's role.

Patriots RB Rex Burkhead suffered a 3rd-quarter knee injury and was quickly ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game against the Texans. That usually suggests a serious injury. We'll update Burkhead's status when we know more.

Basically any questionable Patriots defensive player in play for IDP use is active today vs. Houston. That includes CB Stephon Gilmore (knee), LB Ja'Whaun Bentley (groin), DE Deatrich Wise (knee, hand), DE John Simon (elbow) and DE Lawrence Guy (shoulder, elbow, knee).

Patriots RB Damien Harris (ankle, chest) is active for today’s game against the Texans. RB Sony Michel (quad) is INACTIVE, despite being placed on the roster this week. So Harris remains locked in as New England’s primary ball-carrier for this plus matchup.
