Fantasy Impact:

A Patriots' staffer was seen filming the Bengals' sideline from the press box during Week 14's contest between Cleveland versus Cincinnati. New England said it was an "unintended oversight." The NFL concluded it's investigation and once again punished the team for violating the rules. The Patriots ended up being fined $1.1. million and forfeiting a 2021 third-round pick. Also included in the punishment, the Patriots production crews will not be allowed to shoot any games for the 2020 season.
