LB - NE
The Patriots placed LB Matt Judon on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Judon could miss Sunday's Week 17 game against the Jaguars. This would hurt New England's D/ST for fantasy purposes, but it's still a fantastic matchup.
LB Matthew Judon and the Patriots have reached an agreement on a four-year, $56 million contract. The deal includes $32 million over the first two years.
The Patriots reportedly were making a major push to sign Judon earlier on Monday and ended up reaching a four-year agreement with the star LB. He instantly boosts the Patriots defense and gives New England an elite edge rusher. The 28-year-old racked up 51 tackles (32 solo) and six sacks across 14 games for the Ravens in 2020. New England makes an intriguing DST option in 2021 with the additions of DT Davon Godchaux, CB Jalen Mills and LB Matthew Judon.
