New England Patriots- The Patriots have been the same dominant team for the better part of two decades. It may be the twilight of the Tom Brady-Bill Belichick era, but they’re still just as good as they were in their prime years. Now, with the addition of explosive receiver Brandin Cooks, they could be as offensively potent as ever. This is a high-powered offense that uses Tom Brady and the passing game to break opposing defenses down, which allows them to effectively deploy a physical run-game. They’ve replaced LeGarrette Blount’s 299 carries and 18 touchdowns with Mike Gillislee from the Bills. You can’t expect Gillislee to reach those numbers, but he should play a similar role in this offense. Owning the core players like Brady, Cooks, Rob Gronkowski and possibly Gillislee – the ones who can give you big production, is the key in Fantasy. The loss of Julian Edelman for the season could be a plus for Cooks and Gronkowski but Danny Amendola and Chris Hogan could end up with at least some of Edelman’s targets as well. It’s also worth noting that the Patriots love to involve their running backs in the passing game, so James White and Dion Lewis will also get their share of targets. All this talent illustrates the problem with using Patriots players in Fantasy. While a diverse and prolific offense is terrific for NFL play, it’s mostly a negative for Fantasy play because no single player or group of players will dominate their offensive scheme.
