Week 3 Outlook
The New England Patriots have picked up the fifth-year option for OL Isaiah Wynn.
Wynn is now guaranteed a salary of $10.413 million and will remain in New England for the next two seasons. The No.23 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft has started in every game he’s played (18) over the last two seasons. He’s missed time over the years due to injuries. Wynn is expected to serve as the Patriots starting LT and his presence only helps rookie QB Mac Jones and New England’s offense.
Patriots' OT Isaiah Wynn (knee) has been ruled out for Week 12, per source.
Wynn suffered a knee injury against the Texans in Week 11 and failed to participate in practice this week. His injury is the latest to the Patriots' offensive line unit, which will need to continue shuffling healthy linemen to accommodate Wynn's absence at the left guard position. The Cardinals' defense has allowed just six rushing touchdowns on the year, which will present a challenge to the Patriots' run-centric offensive scheme with a weakened offensive line in Week 12.
The Patriots activated Isaiah Wynn (turf toe) off injured reserve.
This is a big boost to their offensive line ahead of a Week 12 tilt with the Cowboys. Wynn's return should be considered a positive for all of New England's skill players.
New England first-round pick offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn tore his achilles in Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles and is out for the season, reports NFL insider Adam Schefter on Twitter.
New England lost offensive tackle Nate Solder to free agency in the offseason and then spent a first round pick on Wynn to help shore up their offensive, but his season is now over before it started. The Patriots always seem to be able to make things work when it comes to their offensive line, but this is not great news for the fantasy values of their offensive playmakers.
With the 23rd selection in the NFL Draft, the New England Patriots selected Georgia offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn.
So much for the Patriots interest in Lamar Jackson, eh? This pick is a little puzzling, though, as Wynn projects to play the guard position in the NFL after playing left tackle at Georgia. At just 6-foot-2, it's going to be extremely tough to sell him as Nate Solder's replacement at left tackle. Wynn should be a phenomenal guard in the NFL, but it appears the Patriots will ask him to stay on the outside. It's going to be tough to grade this pick until we know the Patriots' full plan.
