Antonio Brown, Gone Again
Antonio Brown has been released from the Patriots, for them, everything just goes back to how it was in week one. As always though, let’s break it down.
Josh Gordon is now a high end WR2 again who will always bring mid-range WR1 upside. He had more targets in week two versus Miami with Brown in New England (than Week one) but his touch down upside is back.
Edelman is a mid-range WR2 again, he had 11 targets in week one, and had only 4 in week two. His target share should spike back up and you can confidently start him again.
Dorsett is going to continue to be an interesting player to watch, his performance in week one was promising. Dorsett should be a high upside flex play in GPP line ups if you’re trying to save money. Other than that, I wouldn’t go out of my way to own him.
White will continue in his role; the Patriots are running a lot of two RB sets with no tight end. This makes White a start every week as a low end RB2 with upside play.
Brady moves to a low end QB1, week one the Patriots showed us they will still throw the ball if the match up is right. Confidently start Brady for the next few weeks because the Patriots have one of the easiest schedules in the NFL until week nine.
It remains a question if Antonio Brown will play this season for a new team. Hold for now, until we hear more information regarding his investigation.
