Shark Bites

Patriots WR Julian Edelman (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Cowboys. He was limited in practice all week, but we've heard nothing to suggest he’ll be limited today. WRs Mohamed Sanu (ankle) and Phillip Dorsett (concussion) are inactive, leaving rookies N’Keal Harry and Jakobi Meyers as New England’s #2 and #3 WRs.

Patriots QB Tom Brady (elbow) will play against the Cowboys today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The team reportedly monitored Brady's throwing elbow over the weekend, but we didn't hear any concern about the issue beyond that. Brady seems safe to use as you normally would.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Patriots WR Mohamed Sanu's injured ankle has "improved rapidly," giving him a "slim chance" to play against the Cowboys today. Rapoport adds that Sanu would be "extremely limited" if he ends up active. Avoid him in Week 12 fantasy lineups.

Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett still hadn't cleared the concussion protocol as of Saturday morning, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss. Both Dorsett and WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) are looking very iffy for tomorrow's game against the Cowboys. Their absences would mean more playing time for rookie WRs N'Keal Harry and Jakobi Meyers -- and more targets for WR Julian Edelman, RB James White and TE Ben Watson.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Patriots QB Tom Brady is expected to play against the Cowboys on Sunday, despite being listed as questionable with a right elbow issue. "More managing the elbow and taking care of it than anything," Rapoport adds. It's worth noting that Brady posted an ugly 55.3% completion rate and 4.6 yards per attempt in last week's win over the Eagles. He's no better than a low-end QB1 for Week 12.

Patriots QB Tom Brady was added to the injury report on Friday with a right (throwing) elbow issue. He was limited in practice and is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Cowboys. We haven't heard anything to suggest that this is a real concern, but it's certainly worth keeping an eye on. We'll pass along any updates we get.

The Patriots list WR Julian Edelman (shoulder) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. He was limited in practice all week, but we've heard nothing to suggest that he's in danger of missing this game. Keep Edelman penciled into fantasy lineups for now. We'll let you know if something changes.

Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett (concussion) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Cowboys. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday but still hasn’t received full medical clearance. Hopefully we get an update on Dorsett on Sunday morning.

Patriots WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Cowboys. He’s reportedly dealing with a high-ankle sprain but did return for a limited practice on Friday. We’ll look for an update on Sanu on Sunday morning, but Pats-Cowboys doesn’t kick off until 4:25 pm ET. Try to avoid him in fantasy lineups at less than 100%.

Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett (concussion) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That gives him a shot to get cleared in time for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. If Dorsett plays, he figures to serve as New England's #2 WR with Mohamed Sanu out with his ankle injury.

Patriots insider Tom Curran hears that WR Mohamed Sanu is believed to be dealing with a high-ankle sprain that could cost him "a couple of weeks." That seems like an optimistic timetable if this is truly a high-ankle sprain. Fantasy owners should obviously plan on being without Sanu for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. His absence could open up more playing time for rookie WR N'Keal Harry.

Patriots WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) missed practice on Wednesday. We noticed Sanu tweak an ankle in Philadelphia on Sunday, but he was able to play through it. We'll see if he's able to get back on the practice field tomorrow.

Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett sustained a concussion on his 3rd-quarter TD against the Eagles on Sunday. It's his 1st documented concussion. We'll track Dorsett's progress through the protocol this coming week. His absence would free up snaps for rookies N'Keal Harry and Jakobi Meyers.

7:11pm EST 11/3/19

Patriots RB James White (toe) is active for tonight’s game against the Ravens. He was added to the injury report on Friday, but the toe injury is reportedly very minor. White is safe to get into fantasy lineups if you waited on him.

Patriots S Patrick Chung (heel) is active for tonight's game against the Ravens.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that the toe injury that landed Patriots RB James White on this week's injury report is "very minor." Rapoport doesn't say anything about White's availability for tonight's game against the Ravens, but the report suggests that he'll be able to play. We'll continue to look for updates on his status this morning.

The Patriots have activated WR N'Keal Harry from IR. He's eligible to play Sunday night against the Ravens but isn't likely to claim a significant offensive role anytime soon. New England has Julian Edelman, Phillip Dorsett and Mohamed Sanu in place as the top 3 wideouts. Harry's first step will be fighting fellow rookie Jakobi Meyers for the 4th WR role.

Patriots RB James White (toe) was added to the injury report on Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Ravens. We don't have any other details right now. The late kickoff could make this a tricky situation for fantasy owners, but hopefully we get an update on White on Sunday morning. His absence would likely mean an expanded pass-catching role for RB Rex Burkhead.

8:10pm EDT 10/29/19

The Patriots have signed K Nick Folk to replace K Mike Nugent. Folk has been out of the NFL since 2017 but kicked for the AAF's Arizona Hotshots earlier this year. He sports a career 80.3% FG conversion rate across 11 NFL seasons. Folk could come into fantasy value kicking for a strong Patriots offense.

3:10pm EDT 10/27/19

Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (foot) is active for today’s game against the Browns. He shouldn’t be in fantasy lineups in his 1st action since Week 4 but does add a bit of downside to RBs Sony Michel and James White.
