The Patriots will have DE Chandler Jones (abdomen, toe), LB Jamie Collins (back), LB Dont'a Hightower (knee) and DE Rob Ninkovich (shin) active for today's AFC Championship game at Denver. All carried "questionable" tags, but Collins was the only iffy player after suffering his injury in the win over the Chiefs. That situation adds risk to him as an IDP play in fantasy football lineups this weekend. Jones also played a more limited role last week than usual and is more boom/bust than when at full health. The New England defense carries lots of turnover upside, however, against a Denver offense that threw the league's most INTs this year.

Recent Shark Bites

Patriots DL Michael Bennett is active for today's game against the Bills. He entered the day questionable with a shoulder injury and saw his snaps dip last week. LB Dont'a Hightower is inactive with his own shoulder injury. Neither should have factored into your IDP plans much, and Hightower's absence doesn't change the outlook for the New England team defense.

Patriots S Patrick Chung and DE Trey Flowers (concussions) are both active for today's game against the Dolphins. Both make sense as IDP options depending on league size and your other available options.

Patriots S Patrick Chung and DE Trey Flowers are questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Each guy missed Week 3 with a concussion. They put in limited practices this week, and Flowers told reporters Wednesday he expected to be ready to play Sunday. We'll see about the status of each starter on Sunday.

The Patriots on Saturday ruled DE Trey Flowers and S Patrick Chung out for Sunday night's game at Detroit. Each is dealing with a concussion. We'll see about their progress heading into Week 4.

Patriots S Devin McCourty (shoulder) and LB Kyle Van Noy (calf) are questionable for Sunday's finale against the Jets. Van Noy has missed the past 3 games with this injury and probably isn't a good play even if active. McCourty hasn't missed a snap in the past 3 games and put in limited practices all week. We'll confirm each player's status on Sunday.
