Fantasy Fix: Week 2 Start 'Em/Sit 'Em

Sure your fantasy team was blown out week one. But hey, my Fantasy Footballer's, it’s way too early to start blowing up your team and taking up Fantasy Ballroom Dancing. Your humble-but-nonetheless-handsome Guru is here to tell you to remain calm, take a deep breath, pour a stiff drink (it’s 5 o’clock somewhere) and relax. Megatron, Trent Richardson and Dez Bryant...

Brandon Lloyd has no interest in playing, rejected offers from six teams

Our own Liam Cunningham wrote today about the pros and cons of bringing back Brandon Lloyd to the Patriots. Despite reports that Lloyd was ready to retire, we assumed that this was merely because no team was interested in him. Apparently, it's the other way around. "The Patriots, Jets, and 49ers are among at least six teams that have approached Lloyd about playing in 2013...

Brady calls Jets rivalry "awesome"

When you think of Boston sports, a rivalry with New York always comes to mind.

Did Belichick just diss LeGarrette Blount?

LeGarrette Blount is a big dude. Standing at (a generous) 6-feet and weighing around 250 lbs, there is no doubt that this guy can truck over people. However, is this becoming a running gag for the Patriots? Here is what head coach Bill Belichick had to say on him: Gumbel: "Said he runs like a 225-pounder." Dierdorf: "I'm not sure that's a compliment."...

Why everyone should calm the hell down about the Patriots not practicing

The Patriots elected to not practice yesterday, instead just doing a light walkthrough. With all of the injuries on the team, and the fact that this is the second week of the year so the team has had since February to do some extra preparation for their short week with the Jets, I barely thought it was newsworthy. Not to most of the Boston media, who are freaking the hell out about...

Should the Patriots bring back Brandon Lloyd?

This time last year the Patriots had one of, if not the, most dynamic and unpredictable offenses in football. Tom Brady, an elite quarterback, was surrounded on all sides by top-notch offensive weapons: The Hernandez/Gronk tandem, Welker/Edelman in the slot, Ridley/Vereen/Bolden in the backfield, and Brandon Lloyd on the outside. Paired with a tremendous O-line, it is no surprise...

LT says Rex Ryan told Jets he would punch Belichick in the face

Jets coach Rex Ryan and the Patriots have had a heated rivalry that's only gotten hotter with Rex Ryan at the helm in New York. We know that there's a bit of dislike between the players. Apparently Rex Ryan played a bit off that with a joke to his team during former running back turned NFL Network analyst Ladanian Tomlinson's tenure. LT #FTW RT @BrianCoz: Tomlinson...

Quentin Sims Released

        Wideout Quentin Sims most notably known as Tebow's go-to-guy during his tenure has been released form the Patriots practice Squad. A University of Tennessee at Martin grad, Sims looked promising for the Pats in the preseason. Especially during Tebow's 4th game when he found Sims twice for two athletic, challenging grabs for touchdowns. You never know with practice...

After a tough win in the season opener, a banged-up Patriots team will have to deal with a quick turnaround to face their hated divisional rivals from New York on Thursday. Here's a breakdown of some of the matchups that could determine the game. When New England has the ball: My fellow Pats fans, it pains me to say this but things could get really ugly at times.

Shane Vereen placed on temporary IR, out seven weeks

Reports earlier today indicated that Shane Vereen - who dislocated a bone in his wrist - would be out for four weeks. It appears it's even more serious than that. Patriots place RB Shane Vereen (dislocated bone in wrist) on Injured Reserve/designated to return. See him Week 8, at earliest— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 10, 2013 The good news it that Vereen isn't out...

Fantasy Fix: 5 Up/5 Down - Vick-Torius Birds Hit Warp Speed

Monday night football is back, Fantasy Footballer’s. Two games? Philly/DC and San Diego/Houston both proved highly entertaining and, more importantly, highly profitable for us needing a Fantasy Fix. Pass the Advil, I’ve got a pigskin hangover. I kid, I kid. Personally, I can’t get enough of the NFL. With apologies to Hank Williams Jr, while we may have been ready for some football...

With Sudfeld hobbled, will the Pats continue to struggle in the Red Zone?

It was clearly obvious that the Patriots offense was not meshing so well in their highly anticipated season debut. After a very up and down preseason, the unit performed when necessary, but failed to pull the game away when they had chances early on. Here's a quick note: the Pats were 2-for-5 in Red Zone opportunities. Not a very flattering statistics for last year's league...

Aaron Dobson expects to play against Jets

The Patriots rookie pass catchers took a lot of flack for not being on the same page as Tom Brady. Now with the news that they've lost some veterans, they might have even more rookies on the field for Thursday's game against the Jets.

Danny Amendola unlikely to play against Jets?

The Patriots oft-injured receiver has been struggling with a groin issue. It's a problem that plagued him in last Sunday's game against the Bills, but he played through it. Perhaps that wasn't a wise choice. He's been limited in practice so far, and not present in today's walkthrough. #Patriots WR Danny Amendola's absence from walkthrough (right groin) does...

Patriots working out Andre Carter

Former Patriots defensive end was recently cut by the Raiders. He shined with the Pats in his near season of work, before suffering a terrible injury late in the season and missing the rest of the year. After some squabbles over money, Carter was no longer a Patriot and became a Raider. Could he now come back? Filed to @ESPNBoston: The Patriots worked out veteran DE Andre Carter...

Muhammad Wilkerson guarantees a Jets victory

Bart Scott and Darrelle Revis are no longer in the New York locker room and Rex Ryan isn't boasting much anymore. Still, that doesn't mean a Jets player won't give out guarantees and trash talk their opponents. The Jets have some pretty terrible expectations this year. They've got virtually nobody on offense except rookie Geno Smith. They lost their best player in...

Mike Wallace Upset With Dolphins Coaches After Win

Well, it's a good thing no one could have seen this coming. Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace was visibly frustrated following a quiet day in his Dolphins debut. Constant double coverage limited the speedy receiver, who signed a $60 million contract this offseason, to one catch for 15 yards in the Dolphins 23-10 victory over the Browns. After the game, the pouting Wallace was...

Patriots undrafted rookie tight end Zach Sudfeld built up a lot of well deserved hype in preseason. However, the tight end has not done well recently.
