Dont'a Hightower among Patriots' key opt-outs returning in 2021

After opting out of the 2020 season last summer, several key Patriots opt-outs are set to return. Linebacker Dont'a Hightower, safety Patrick Chung, and tackle Marcus Cannon are among the New England players planning to opt back in for 2021.

Fantasy Impact

The Patriots struggled in their first year without Tom Brady. Still, the defense impressed and could return to elite status with players like Hightower and Chung returning. Meanwhile, the offensive line took a step forward with the emergence of rookie Michael Onwenu, but Cannon's return adds even more firepower in the trenches. This extra protection will be incredibly valuable for whichever quarterback starts under center for the Patriots next season.
