Fantasy Impact:

Amendola was limited all week with a knee issue but will play against the Raiders. Amendola's snaps did not spike last week with Hogan out so no reason to think it would happen this week with Hogan out again. Gillislee is again out which should be good news for Rex Burkhead who has seemed to take over early-down work.

Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 11. Phillip Dorsett played 70% of the snaps last week with Hogan out and is a decent dart throw given the quality of his quarterback and the scoring potential of the offense.

Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder, hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 11. Bennett played through the shoulder injury last week and should be able to do so again.

Patriots WR Matt Slater (hamstring, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 11.

Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 11. Amendola’s snaps did not spike last week with Chris Hogan sidelined so he’s terribly attractive as a spot start despite a nice matchup with the Raiders.

Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett were rarely healthy at the same time in the 2016 season, so we never saw the duo achieve its full potential. But when they did play together, the Pats liked to line them up next to each other on the same side of the formation. They frequently did this on Sunday night, and it resulted in a few big plays.

Fantasy Impact:

Bennett played just seven snaps on SNF, but QB Tom Brady was 6-for-6 for 78 yards during that time. Bennett actually caught three of those passes for a total of 38 yards while Gronk had a catch for 26 yards. Bennett clearly isn't healthy but isn't letting on the severity of the injury. Clearly he's healthy enough to play, but in terms of fantasy it's hard to tell right now if the Pats were just easing him in or if he's going to be limited.

Pats RB Mike Gillislee INACTIVE for SNF

Fantasy Impact:

Gillislee had been losing carries to Lewis over the last few weeks. Lewis owners will have one less back to worry about stealing work against Denver tonight. White should be the main pass-catching back with Burkhead mixing in everywhere.

Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder, questionable) was limited Friday after taking full reps earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 10. Bennett may be able to suit up for the Patriots, though we doubt he will.

Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. Thomas was removed from the injury report, so he’ll be able to face the Patriots.

Friday, November 10, 2017, 5:53pm

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle, questionable) took full practice reps again Friday and is questionable for Week 10. Sanders is expected to play on Sunday night against the Patriots. Bennie Fowler is a decent pivot for Sanders owners who want to wait to see if Sanders plays.

Friday, November 10, 2017, 5:53pm

Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 10. With Hogan out, Brandin Cooks, Danny Amendola and Phillip Dorsett should all see a bump in snaps and potentially targets as well.
