| A former first round draft choice in 2015, Phillip Dorsett has struggled to earn snaps early in his pro career. He has flashed some big play potential but his failure to impress in the wake of Donte Moncrief's injury a year ago are an indictment on his ability to be anything more than a part time player. Another disappointing start to the year would leave the door cracked for Chester Rogers or former Raven Kamar Aiken to emerge as the third receiver in the offense. Rogers showed far more chemistry with Andrew Luck than Dorsett and may become a deep league flex option if given more snaps in 2017. Meanwhile, Aiken has a useful fantasy season under his belt and brings experience to a relatively young group of receivers.
| Amendola ruled out for Patriots|
Pats to feature RBs in the passing game?

FFToday's Take: With Amendola out, Chris Hogan and Brandin Cooks should be Tom Brady's top wideout targets. Belichick may opt to use his running backs (James White, Rex Burkhead, Dion Lewis) more in the passing game as newly acquired Phillip Dorsett is the only other healthy receiver on the roster.
| Amendola absent with concussion and knee injury|
Missed practice Wednesday
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Sep 13, 7:30 pm
|FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots confirmed Wednesday that wide receiver Danny Amendola suffered a concussion in the team's season-opening loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. The disclosure was made on the official injury report, which noted that Amendola did not participate in Wednesday's practice.
In addition, the Patriots noted that Amendola also has a knee injury.
FFToday's Take: After a promising start to the season, Danny Amendola's chances of playing this week are not looking good. Malcom Mitchell or Phillip Dorsett could see a few snaps in Week 2 if Amendola's status does not improve by the weekend.

Colts get Luck insurance

FFToday's Take: Dorsett has struggled to become a significant part of the Colts offense since being drafted in the first round back in 2015. He'll get a fresh start in New England but likely wont' have much fantasy value being fourth or fifth on depth chart behind Brandin Cooks, Chris Hogan, Danny Amendola and Malcolm Mitchell.
