Malcolm Mitchell returns to practice for the Patriots

Malcolm Mitchell (knee) returned to practice Wednesday, Mike Reiss of reports.

Fantasy Impact

Mitchell has been on the injured reserve all season and it did not look like he would make it back this season. If Mitchell does get activated before the Week 17 matchup with the Jets he would probably only see limited playing time and is not worth owning in fantasy.

Malcolm Mitchell unlikely to return this season

Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports the Patriots consider WR Malcolm Mitchell (knee, injured reserve) unlikely to return this season.

Fantasy Impact

With the signing of Kenny Britt on Tuesday, it means the Patriots were concerned about their wide receiver depth with Mitchell not being able to come back. If fantasy owners were holding onto Mitchell for the hope that he would return he can be dropped.

Malcolm Mitchell placed on Injured Reserve

Malcolm Mitchell has been placed on Injured Reserve, per NFL's Ian Rapoport on Twitter earlier today.

Fantasy Impact

Mitchell was a deep sleeper with upside from his use towards the end of last season and especially after the season-ending injury to Edelman. With Mitchell out, this should further solidify the fantasy value of other Patriots WRs including Chris Hogan and Danny Amendola.

Malcolm Mitchell placed on IR

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the New England Patriots have placed wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell (knee) on the injured reserve list.

Fantasy Impact

Mitchell, who received a bump on the depth chart in the wake of Julian Edelman's injury, was placed on IR Thursday with a lingering knee injury. This could explain why the Patriots dealt for Philip Dorsett last week. As Mitchell had minimal fantasy value entering 2017, Dorsett, who had none, advances into Mitchell's bottom spot on the waiver priority list.

Malcolm Mitchell remains out of practice

Malcolm Mitchell, who appeared to aggravate a right knee issue back on Aug. 19, remained out of practice Monday, the Patriots' official site reports.

Fantasy Impact

Mitchell has a golden opportunity to move up the depth chart for the Patriots with the season ending injury to Julian Edelman. Mitchell should only be a target for deep fantasy leagues for his upside but owners need to keep in mind that Mitchell could go on IR if he doesn't get on the field by next week.
