With Julian Edelman's pending four-game suspension and the exit of Brandin Cooks, the wide receiver depth chart is sort of wide-open after Chris Hogan. Most have forgotten about Mitchell's last six games with Tom Brady that produced 25 receptions for 309 yards and four touchdowns. If Mitchell can bounce back from his injury that knocked him out of 2017, he could have a few fantasy relevant weeks.

Malcolm Mitchell released by Patriots

The New England Patriots released 2016 fourth-round wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell, who recently underwent a procedure on his ailing knee. Mitchell caught 32 balls for 401 yards and four touchdowns as a rookie but sat out the entire 2017 season after injuring his knee at the tail end of his rookie campaign.

Fantasy Impact

The Patriots were rumored to be shopping Mitchell but drew no interest. Clearly there are major concerns about that knee, as New England is thin at receiver and Mitchell flashed some big potential as a rookie. Just 25, Mitchell may eventually draw some interest as a free agent but he'll have to get fully healthy before that can happen. Only members of really deep dynasty leagues with ample IR spots should be holding onto Mitchell for fantasy purposes this season.
