Belichick on Josh Gordon: "I would just say his role is expanding weekly and we'll just see how it all plays out."

Fantasy Impact:

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

Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 6. Michel will probably play on Sunday night, but hopefully we’ll get a Saturday night/Sunday morning tweet from Adam Schefter or Ian Rapoport as confirmation.

Friday, October 12, 2018, 7:31pm

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (ankle, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 6. Gronkowski is questionable for Sunday’s game in the same way that he’s questionable to take a party cruise at some point in 2019.

Friday, October 12, 2018, 7:31pm

Patriots WR Chris Hogan (thigh, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice Thursday and is questionable for Week 6. Hogan’s return means that he’s likely to play Sunday night against the Colts. He’s playing a ton of snaps, so his absence would lead to more opportunity for Josh Gordon.

Friday, October 12, 2018, 7:31pm

Patriots WR Josh Gordon (hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 6. Gordon is likely to play on Sunday night. He hasn’t cracked a 30% snap rate since joining the Patriots, but the team should be ramping up his snaps soon.

Thursday, October 11, 2018, 7:19pm

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (ankle) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Gronk should continue to play through the injury. The Chiefs are No. 29 in TE aFPA, so this is a good spot for him.

Thursday, October 11, 2018, 7:19pm

Patriots WR Chris Hogan (thigh) missed practice Thursday after taking limited reps Wednesday. It’s a midweek downgrade so suddenly Hogan is questionable for Week 6. With Julian Edelman back and Josh Gordon in the fold, Hogan’s targets are getting squeezed, though he’s still playing a lot of snaps. His fantasy production will be sporadic. If Hogan is out, the other New England receivers would each get a small bump in expected production.

Thursday, October 11, 2018, 7:19pm

Patriots WR Josh Gordon (hamstring) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Gordon should be fine to play in a tasty matchup against the Chiefs, though he hasn’t played more than 26% of the snaps in two games with the Patriots.

Thursday, October 11, 2018, 7:19pm

Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Michel should be fine to play in a great matchup against the Chiefs, who are No. 29 in RB aFPA. He has posted 222 total yards and two touchdowns on 44 total touches over the past two weeks.
