Belichick on Josh Gordon: "I would just say his role is expanding weekly and we'll just see how it all plays out."
Gordon saw his snaps increase from 26.1% in Week 5 against the Colts to over 80% against the Chiefs last week. Gordon was targeted nine times and caught five balls for 42 yards. It seems like at this point Gordon is only going to improve on those numbers
First-round pick N’Keal Harry made a strong first impression. Physically, he just looks different on the field with a degree of athleticism after the catch and the way he can control his body in the air. That’s a lot of praise for a wide receiver after his first NFL practice, without pads or much contact, in front of the media, and he also didn’t do anything with Brady, who isn’t expected to arrive until minicamp in two weeks. But Harry distinguished himself physically, and that’s the best way to evaluate a rookie receiver at this stage of the calendar.
Harry had a team-high five receptions in team drills.
The Patriots have 14.4 vacated targets per game, so there is plenty of opportunity for Harry in his first season. If he's able to gain the trust of Tom Brady, he could be a fantasy starter in 2019.
Bills coach Sean McDermott told reporters that starting TE Tyler Kroft suffered a broken foot during yesterday’s OTAs and will need surgery.
Tyler Kroft’s timeframe for recovery is 3-4 months, source said. That puts him right up against the start of the season and raises the possibility of beginning the season on the PUP list.
Kroft was the designated starter at TE on his new team in Buffalo but was only in streaming consideration heading into the fantasy season. If he misses significant time, Jason Croom will take over as the TE target for sophomore QB Josh Allen.
Michael Floyd, the 13th overall pick of the 2012 draft, will add competition to an extremely young wide receiver group. This is his fifth different team in as many years. Floyd caught 10 passes for 100 yards and one TD for Washington last season.
This is Floyd's fifth uniform in the past four seasons. After a decent four-year start in Arizona where he racked up 209 receptions for 3,293 yards and 19 touchdowns, he faded with just 37 catches for 488 yards and five scores post-2015. Floyd is landing in a decent spot to make the Ravens roster and could be fantasy relevant in larger leagues.
