Malcolm Mitchell on the Roster Bubble?

Mike Reiss of ESPN considers WR Malcolm Mitchell to be "on the bubble" of the Patriots' 53-man roster. (ESPN)

Fantasy Impact:

Mitchell hasn't done much to inspire fantasy owners, and is only relevant in relatively deep dynasty leagues, but he has shown brief flashes that make owners hold out hope. Mitchell has excellent hands, and showed some promise in 2016, but has been hampered by his inability to get on the field due to injuries. Mitchell played 12 games in 2016, during which time he ranked 14th in the league in fantasy points per target. He was bolstered by his 4 touchdowns on only 48 targets, but that illuminates why dynasty owners are tantalized by his upside. If Mitchell is healthy, he should make the roster, and could even find his way onto the field during Julian Edelman's suspension. When you play WR with Tom Brady, there are lots of avenues to score fantasy points. Since Mitchell carries almost no value, he is a good buy in dynasty and he could blow up if he delivers. If not, cutting him won't cost much in dynasty leagues.
