2011 in Review
It was a strange year for the 2011 New England Patriots. They went 13-3 and just missed out on winning the Super Bowl, and it wasn’t always pretty. Their defense allowed the second most yards in the NFL, but somehow ranked eighth in Fantasy Football points. Their offense was as good as expected, with Tom Brady throwing for 5, 235 yards and the second most TDs of his career, and Rob Gronkowski posting solid WR1 totals… from the tight end position. Wes Welker also set career highs in yards and touchdown catches, while hauling in 122 receptions. The “second string” tight end, Aaron Hernandez chipped in with 79 receptions and 910 yards of his own. The running game was basically an afterthought, but BenJarvus Green-Ellis did hit paydirt 11 times.
