Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (not injury related) was removed from the injury report Friday. No worries here, Big Ben will be out there against the Patriots. Roethlisberger has averaged 44% fewer fantasy points in 14 road games over the past two seasons.

Steelers RB LeVeon Bell (not injury related) took full practice reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week. Bell will be fine to face the Patriots. Unlike his quarterback, Bell has actually been 10% better (PPR) on the road. He has averaged 0.78 rush TD in nine road games over the last two seasons.

Patriots RB Brandon Bolden (knee, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 20.

Patriots WR Chris Hogan (thigh, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 20. Hogan had a “solid limp” in the locker room on Friday per SI’s Greg Bedard, so he may be limited or sidelined this week. If he’s out, Danny Amendola, Malcolm Mitchell and Michael Floyd will try to pick up the slack. Malcolm Mitchell (knee, questionable) and Danny Amendola (ankle, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and are questionable for Week 20.

Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (knee, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 20. Bennett has just 91 yards receiving in his last four games, but has three touchdowns in his last five.

Patriots QB Tom Brady (thigh) was removed from the injury report Friday. No worries here.

Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (illness) was removed from the injury report Friday.
Blount is apparently sick, but he should be fine to play on Saturday.

Patriots WR Danny Amendola (ankle) took full practice reps all week.

Friday, January 13, 2017, 8:14pm

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee) took limited practice reps all week. Hopkins will be out there against the Patriots.

Friday, January 13, 2017, 8:14pm

Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell (knee, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 19. Mitchell is iffy, so he’s a risky play without watching the inactives. Michael Floyd is likely to get the start if Mitchell is out. Danny Amendola is back, so the New England receiving corps is suddenly crowded.

Patriots WR Matt Slater (foot) was removed from the injury report Friday.

Schefter: Pats could get minimum first round pick for QB Jimmy Garoppolo

We've got some ESPN drama on the Jimmy Garoppolo trade rumor mill.

It started last week when ESPN's Adam Schefter said that he believed the "starting point" for the New England Patriots backup quarterback would be a 1st-round pick and a fourth-round pick.

"I could be wrong ...and I might be low on the 1 and the 4. ... I will promise you that they're getting minimum first round pick for Jimmy Garoppolo, promise you," Schefter said.

Fantasy Impact:

Trade rumors for Garoppolo, who has one year left on his contract, will only heat up from here as we get closer to the offseason. There are a number of QB-needy teams in the NFL right now, and this year's draft class has been considered one of the weaker ones in recent years -- at least in terms of top-tier quarterbacks available.

Patriot assistants are hot coaching candidates

Both Josh McDaniels -- and Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia -- have been among the hottest candidates for a head coaching gig this offseason. The 40-year-old McDaniels was previously a head coach for the Denver Broncos in 2009-2010.

After his first run as a head coach ended poorly, McDaniels eventually ended back up in New England, where the general attitude is that the talented offensive mind had taken strides in improving on the subtleties of the job that tripped him up in his first run as a head coach.

Fantasy Impact:

A source said McDaniels could have three interviews this week while the Patriots are on a bye.
