The Boston Herald - [Full Article]

Wide receiver Brandon Lloyd, the outside threat, turns 31 on Thursday, was dynamite throughout the offseason program, sticking out as much as any Patriot on the field, but those practices are conducive to passing success.

The key is gaining Brady’s trust during game situations, and the tandem has worked diligently on that process. The Patriots have scored more points than any team over the last two years without any semblance of an outside threat across from Deion Branch. If Lloyd becomes that guy, it’ll be a track meet for the offense.

Fantasy Impact: 

We have Lloyd as our 29th best WR option in standard leagues with an ADP of the seventh round. He certainly has the potential to be a very important part to the New England offense, and, to exceed his current ranking if the connection mentioned above is made with Brady. The key for drafting Lloyd seems to be not taking him too early.
