|If fantasy owners want to roll the dice and grab a piece of this high powered offense, veteran Chris Hogan and rookie Malcom Mitchell are likely their best bets. The Patriots signed restricted free agent Hogan to a three-year $12M contract this offseason which the Bills declined to match which could mean they have big plans for the player once nicknamed “7-11” by Reggie Bush in Miami because he was always open. At 6’1” and 220 pounds he’s a big target with deceptive speed and would bring more to the table lining up outside than Danny Amendola.
While rookie wide receivers have generally struggled in the Patriots complex offense, Mitchell was said to be “showing early aptitude” per ESPN’s Mike Reiss following minicamp. The rookie out of Georgia had a productive SEC career and shined at the Combine. Fantasy owners should pay attention to Hogan and Mitchell during the preseason and be ready to take a late round flier if there are any signs of life.

A healthy scratch, other areas of need

|Barring an unexpected change, I'm told Patriots wide receiver Michael Floyd will be inactive for Super Bowl LI as the team doesn't have the luxury to carry five players at the position on the 46-man game-day roster. It needs the spots for other areas, such as special teams and goal-line situations. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: The Patriots will roll with Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Danny Amendola and Malcolm Mitchell at the wide receiver position.
| WR Chris Hogan avoids serious injury|

|FOXBORO, Mass. — There’s good news on the Chris Hogan injury front. The Patriots receiver seems to have avoided a serious injury Saturday night, when he left New England’s 34-16 divisional-round win over the Houston Texans in the third quarter with a thigh injury.
“I’m feeling good,” Hogan said Tuesday. “I just had a little minor setback in the game, but I’m working back every single day and feeling better every day.”
FFToday's Take: Chris Hogan had four catches for 95 yards before being sidelined due to a thigh injury last week. He seems to be progressing with treatment and will likely be considered questionable entering this weekend's AFC Championship game. With fewer options available to fantasy owners this week, Hogan would be a flex consideration for DFS managers if cleared to play.
| Malcolm Mithchell doubtful, knee injury|
Not expected to play against Miami

FFToday's Take: Mitchell missed practice Friday with a knee injury and while likely be inactive on Sunday. With his absence, expect Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan and Michael Floyd to be the top three wideouts for Tom Brady. Hogan is worthy of Flex consideration.
