|After a solid rookie season in 2009 when he caught 37 passes for 359 yards and a touchdown, Edelman seemed a decent bet to eventually assume Wes Welker’s role in the team’s offense. However, after two seasons in which he totaled 11 receptions for 120 yards, the odds of that happening now seem remote. He would have some fantasy value, especially in PPR leagues, if Welker were to go down with an injury. Entering the season, Edelman’s only real fantasy value is if you own Welker in a deep league and want to handcuff him. Dynasty owners in deep leagues could also grab him in the hopes that Welker isn’t in New England in 2013.
| Malcolm Mithchell doubtful, knee injury -- Sat Dec 31 7:00 am --|
Not expected to play against Miami

FF Today's Take: Mitchell missed practice Friday with a knee injury and while likely be inactive on Sunday. With his absence, expect Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan and Michael Floyd to be the top three wideouts for Tom Brady. Hogan is worthy of Flex consideration.
| Gronk questionable, limited in practice Friday -- Fri Nov 25 4:30 pm --|
Tight end's status unclear
|Tight end Rob Gronkowski was also a limited participant on Friday to wrap up a week of practices after missing last Sunday’s game with a chest injury. There was a report Thursday that Gronkowski will miss this week’s game as well, but the Patriots have listed him as questionable along with Brady. (ProFootballTalk)|
FF Today's Take: Basically all of the Patriots fantasy relevant players in the passing game are questionable. Tom Brady, Gronk, Julian Edelman, Martellus Bennett and Chris Hogan. It would be a complete shock if Brady, Edelman and Bennett didn't play. Gronk and Hogan are still up in the air. Perhaps we'll get more clarification before the late-afternoon kickoff on Sunday.
