Keshawn Martin Fantasy News

Friday, January 1, 2016, 6:26pm

Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot, out) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday and is out for Week 17. With Danny Amendola very iffy, it looks like Brandon LaFell and Keshawn Martin will lead the New England receiving corps again this week.

With the Patriots receiving corps ailing, one backup has stepped up and seized the opportunity in front of him.

The respective absences of Julian Edelman (foot) and Danny Amendola (knee) have opened the door for Keshawn Martin to get extended first-team reps.

When Brady was under duress in last Sunday's loss to the Jets, he began to get tunnel vision for one wide-out, and it wasn't Brandon LaFell, the receiver he won a Lombardi Trophy with last February.

Brady targeted Martin 11 times (seven catches, 68 yards). He threw to LaFell once.

Fantasy Impact:

Martin's name started to emerge soon after Edelman went down. Martin was battling his own injuries so it took a little longer, but Martin seems to be a key part of the offense and earning Brady's trust with all the injuries to the position in New England.

It's never easy for a wide receiver to jump in midseason, or late season, and pick up the New England Patriots' offense.

Apparently, the Leonard Hankerson addition didn't go as the team had hoped.

Hankerson, claimed off waivers from Atlanta on Dec. 16, lasted only 10 days in the New England, according to ProFootballTalk.

With Hankerson's impending release, the team will be down to four wide receivers -- Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, Brandon LaFell and Keshawn Martin.

Both Amendola and LaFell are questionable Sunday due to injuries sustained in Week 15 versus the Titans. Amendola injured his left knee, the one that kept him out of the Week 12 game versus Denver. And LaFell appeared to injure his left foot, the one that kept him on the PUP list until Week 7.

Fantasy Impact:

If one or both can't go Sunday, the Patriots may be seeking to use a wide receiver who grasps the offense better than Hankerson. Undrafted rookie Chris Harper could get promoted from the practice squad.

Patriots WR Keshawn Martin (hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 12. He was limited all last week as well before being ruled out on game day. There is definitely opportunity in the New England receiving corps with Julian Edelman out and Danny Amendola potentially sidelined.

Wednesday, November 25, 2015, 6:15pm

Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee) did not practice Wednesday. Amendola is not expected to miss much time, but he’s iffy for Week 12 against Denver. If he’s out, Keshawn Martin and/or Chris Harper will pick up his snaps.

Patriots Inactives
Justin Coleman Cb
Jamie Collins LB
Julian Edelman WR
Trey Flowers DE
Trey Jackson OG
Keshawn Martin WR
Sealver Siliga DT

Fantasy Impact:

Keyshawn Martin was questionable coming into this contest but recently popped up on the fantasy radar when stories broke he had a chance to take on the Julian Edelman role. However, that will at least have to wait a week. Aaron Dobson became questionable today, but is active tonight and should play behind Danny Amendola and Brandon LaFell.

The New England Patriots have issued a statement that WR Aaron Dobson has been added to the injury report with a back injury today.

Dobson is listed as questionable. No word as to how or when the injury surfaced, but it could further deplete New England’s receiving corps if he’s unable to play. Dobson is the team’s fourth wideout behind Brandon LaFell, Danny Amendola and Keshawn Martin, though Martin is also questionable with a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact:

Keshawn Martin popped up on the fantasy radar this week as a possible replacement for Julian Edelman. But Martin is dealing with a hamstring issue and that makes him even more risky for lineups this week. Best to take a wait-and-see approach with Martin. Danny Amendola looks like a safer play right now until we see how this unfolds. As for the Bills, in terms of fantasy offensive players, they enter this contest healthy.
