FF Today's Take: LeGarrette Blount and Shane Vereen are both listed as Questionable. With nothing to play for the entire Patriots offense is too risky to consider for DFS lineups. Brandon Bolden and James White could be the two main ball-carries for New England in Week 17.

FF Today's Take: With Blount out, Jonas Gray will likely serve as the Patriots big back for Week 16. The Jets have been tough against the run this season making Gray nothing more than a FLEX play in Week 16.

Ankle injury keeps Shane Vereen limited
|FOXBOROUGH — The Patriots were without two high-profile players at practice on Wednesday, but for very different reasons.
Defensive lineman Dominique Easley (knee) missed practice, as did running back LeGarrette Blount (not injury related). Blount, according to reports, was in Pittsburgh in court to appeal an August charge for possession of marijuana.
As usual, the Patriots had a laundry list of limited participants in practice. Long-snapper Danny Aiken (concussion), left guard Dan Connolly (ankle), wide receiver Julian Edelman (thigh), offensive tackle Cameron Fleming (ankle), linebacker Dont'a Hightower (shoulder), defensive end Chandler Jones (hip), wide receiver Brandon LaFell (shoulder), running back Shane Vereen (ankle), and linebacker Chris White (ankle) were all limited in practice
FF Today's Take: Blount was given 50 hours of community service stemming from his marijuana possession charge early this year. Nonetheless, he remains the most fantasy worthy running back heading into Sunday's tilt with the Dolphins. Shane Vereen, who was limited in practice Wednesday, has only had eight touches over the past two weeks and will be a risky fantasy start if cleared to play.
