2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
The oft-forgotten man in the New England stable of running backs, James White led all Patriot ball carriers in targets (72) and receptions (56), while finishing fourth on the team in catches behind Rob Gronkowski, Brandin Cooks, and Danny Amendola.

Although the Patriots used a first-round pick on rookie Sony Michel, a talented college RB who can also catch passes, White projects once again to be the third down and pass-catching back for Tom Brady in 2018. White's value is significantly higher in PPR formats compared to standard leagues, as the former Wisconsin Badger has yet to carry the ball more than nine times in an NFL regular season game.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Rex Burkhead back at practice
Eligible to play in Week 13
By: Doug Orth | Fri Nov 9, 1:35 am

New England Patriots
Welcome back to practice, RB Rex Burkhead. Burkhead (neck) is eligible to play on Dec. 2 vs. Vikings. This means Burkhead takes the Patriots’ second and final designated to return IR spot. (ESPN - Mike Reiss)

FFToday's Take: Good news for Burkhead, who has struggled to stay healthy as a Patriot. Owners of Sony Michel and James White have a right to be less excited, as both players have repeatedly shown they can deliver RB1 production when there isn't a third chef in the kitchen. Assuming Burkhead returns, he is a decent bet to ding the value of Michel slightly and steal enough work from White to make him more of an RB2. Burkhead is easily worth a stash if owners can find the room.


Injury Sony Michel expected to return for Week 10
Rookie RB should be on the field for Pats-Titans tilt
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Nov 6, 1:02 pm

New England Patriots
Adam Schefter on Twitter: "After missing the past two games with a knee injury, Patriots’ RB Sony Michel is likely to return Sunday vs. Titans, per source. Just needs a good week of practice with no setbacks, but on track." (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Well, there you have it. The great Cordarrelle Patterson experiment seems to be over, and Michel will regain his rightful place alongside James White in the Pats backfield. Michel looks like a go for Week 10 and can be safely inserted as as RB3/flex play, with low-end RB2 upside.


Injury Michel's knee injury not considered serious
Could still miss time
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Oct 22, 1:10 pm

New England Patriots
Sources: #Patriots RB Sony Michel’s knee injury is not considered serious following his MRI. His timetable isn’t clear, but this is pretty good news for their impressive rookie runner. He still could miss time, but if he does, it may not be much. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Michel got his leg twisted early in Week 7 but it appears he escaped a serious knee or ankle injury. We'll have to wait for further details on how much time he will miss. James White and Kenjon Barner handled the rushing duties after Michel left the game. Upcoming schedule for the Pats includes @BUF, GB, @TEN, bye.


Injury Gronkowski doesn't travel with team
Highly unlikely to play in Week 7
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Oct 20, 4:30 pm

New England Patriots
Patriots’ TE Rob Gronkowski is “highly unlikely” to play Sunday vs. Bears as he didn't travel with the team to Chicago, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Gronkowski has yet be ruled out officially but that will likely come tomorrow. He's battled ankle and back injuries recently and doesn't seem to be his usual "Gronk" self on the field. In his absence, Dwayne Allen will likely start but isn't a viable fantasy options. Julian Edelman Josh Gordon and James White should lead the team in receiving.


Injury Rex Burkhead headed to IR
Neck injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Sep 26, 11:55 am

New England Patriots
BREAKING: The #Patriots will be putting RB Rex Burkhead (neck) and rookie LB Ja'Whaun Bentley (unknown) on IR today, per league source. (Jim McBride on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Burkhead was a pre-season favorite of the fantasy community with and ADP in the 6th round at RB28. Now, Sony Michel, James White and Kenjon Barner now makeup the Patriots running back depth chart with Michel being the back to own in most leagues.


Injury Sony Michel not expected to play
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Sep 9, 8:10 am

New England Patriots
Patriots’ RB Sony Michel, listed as questionable for opener against the Texans due to a knee injury, is not expected to play today, per source. More on Sunday NFL Countdown at 10 a.m. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Michel has been a longshot to play Week 1 after missing most of August with a knee issue that required a clean up procedure. Expect to see plenty of Rex Burkhead and James White in the backfield for New England both are viable fantasy plays in Week 1.


Patriots release RB Mike Gillislee
Should catch on with another team
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Sep 1, 1:23 pm

New England Patriots
The Patriots have released Mike Gillislee, per source. As it turned out, they sat him against the Giants as a courtesy to prevent an injury before this transaction. (Jeff How on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Gillisle was part of a crowded running back group that includes Rex Burkhead, Sony Michel, James White and Jeremy Hill. With Gillislee's release, it appears the veteran Hill has made the team.
