New England Patriots

AFC East

Fantasy Impact: Tennessee has a free agent QB of their own in Ryan Tannehill and will need to address the position in some way this offseason. Brady is an obvious target given the presence of former teammate Mike Vrabel and the team's strong 2019 postseason run.

Fantasy Impact: While Gostkowski is a household name as a kicker, this news isn't extremely surprising given he turned 36 in January, is coming off hip surgery, and wasn't great before landing on IR with the injury to start the 2019 season. We should at least expect the Patriots to bring in some competition this summer if Gostkowski remains with the team, but New England could also save $3.5 million in cap space if they cut the veteran kicker.

Julian Edelman underwent a shoulder procedure last week that is expected to involve "not a length rehab". (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Edelman was clearly banged up towards the end of the season but he is expected to be ready for New England's normal off-season program. However, it remains to be seen who he will be catching passes from in 2020.

The New England Patriots allowed 14 points and 272 yards of offense in their Wild Card round loss to the Tennessee Titans. The defense recorded one sack and one interception.

Fantasy Impact: The best defense in the NFL for the regular season pretty much shut down the passing attack of the Titans but was absolutely annihilated by Derrick Henry and the run game. While the defense only gave up 13 points (plus the extra point on the pick-six, technically), they didn't create much chaos, with only one sack and one turnover. The Patriots should remain a strong defensive unit for 2020, but will surely be over-drafted by fantasy gamers.

Nick Folk converted both of his field goal attempts from short range and his lone extra point try in the Patriots' Wild Card loss to the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Folk didn't have any long kicks in this game, so it's no surprise he came through with a perfect outing. Folk will likely head back to the ranks of the unemployed for 2020.

Benjamin Watson caught three of his four targets for 38 yards in the Patriots' Wild Card loss to the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Watson made some nice plays, but ultimately had a quiet day as far as fantasy football is concerned. The 39-year-old heads to free agency with what is likely a lukewarm market at best.

Phillip Dorsett caught one of his four targets for six yards in the Patriots' Wild Card loss to the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Dorsett did not convert on at least one key deep ball in the game, and otherwise had a quiet game with nothing going for him. After starting the season as a full-time player, Dorsett took a back seat late in the season. Dorsett heads to free agency with not much of significance on his resume.

Mohamed Sanu caught one of his five targets for 11 yards in the Patriots' Wild Card loss to the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Sanu has very much not been worth his acquisition price of a second-round pick thus far, and had a dud of a game to close out the season. Sanu will need an increased role to be a strong fantasy option for 2020, especially with questions about the quarterback situation very much in play. Sanu is signed for one more season with no dead cap, so he could even be a cut candidate.

N'Keal Harry rushed once for seven yards and caught two of his seven targets for 21 yards in the Patriots' Wild Card loss to the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Harry is poised to take a big step forward in 2020 after missing the early part of 2019 with an injury and having a slow emergence though the back half of the season. Harry's biggest question mark is who will be throwing him the ball. He was an excellent college prospect and is versatile enough that he should be just fine as long as the Patriots have a competent quarterback next season. Harry will likely come at a nice value in August.

Rex Burkhead rushed three times for four yards and caught all three of his targets for 32 yards in the Patriots' Wild Card loss to the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Burkhead doesn't touch the ball much, but when he does, often creates for himself, and this game was no exception. His usage was not big for fantasy purposes, but he helped the Patriots offense a good bit with his playmaking. Burkhead could be a strong fantasy option with more touches, but given that all three main running backs are signed through at least 2020, Burkhead's role figures to be largely unchanged next season, meaning he won't be a strong fantasy option for 2020 leagues.

James White rushed once for 14 yards and caught all five of his targets for 62 yards in the Patriots' Wild Card loss to the Titans. White was credited with a fumble on a desperation lateral play on the final play of the game, a kick return.

Fantasy Impact: White was solid in this game, acting as the security blanket as usual. He has PPR appeal if Tom Brady returns, but with a different quarterback and a different looking offense in 2020 being a distinct possibility, White's value is very much up in the air. White is signed through next season with the Patriots.

Sony Michel carried the ball a team-high 14 times for 61 yards (4.4 ypc), he also caught both his pass targets for nine yards.

Fantasy Impact: Michel was drafted around the RB20 slot going into the 2019 season, and he disappointed most fantasy owners, finishing at RB28 in 0.5 PPR leagues. He finished his sophomore campaign with 247 rushing attempts for 912 yards (3.7 average) with seven touchdowns. Despite playing the entire season he caught only 12 passes for 97 yards. Much of Sony Michel's 2020 fantasy outlook will dependent on the futures of both quarterback Tom Brady and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. Assuming the situation remains relatively unchanged from last year Michel should not be one of the top 30 running backs drafted in August.

Jamie Collins completed his 2019 season with three solo tackles, one assisted tackle, one TFL, one sack, and one QB hit, though the Patriots were upset by the Dolphins at home, 27-23.

Fantasy Impact: Collins at least had a decent season finale, who otherwise had a disappointing finish in his second stint with the Patriots. Despite his inconsistencies, he still ranked as one of the top linebackers this year and will have the playoffs to further prove his value to this team.

Dont'a Hightower was everywhere on Saturday, recording two solo tackles, three assisted tackles, one TFL, 1.5 sacks, two QB hits, and one pass defended in a 24-17 win over Buffalo.

Fantasy Impact: Hightower came to life in Week 16 after he fell silent in the last two weeks. Though Hightower has been up and down all season, he has a plus matchup in Week 17 against Miami.

Category: Game Recaps

Matt LaCosse caught his only target for an eight-yard touchdown in the Patriots' Week 16 win over the Bills.

Fantasy Impact: LaCosse was not used as a receiver outside of his touchdown grab early in the game, as he was deployed primarily as a blocker. LaCosse will be unlikely to get any reliable fantasy production for Week 17 or playoffs contests given his role in the offense.

Category: Game Recaps

Jakobi Meyers caught all three of his targets for 25 yards in the Patriots' Week 16 win over the Bills.

Fantasy Impact: Meyers was not used heavily, but converted when needed in this big win for the Patriots. Meyers appears to have fallen back down the depth chart after being thrust into the lineup earlier in the season. He's unlikely to be a significant fantasy contributor in Week 17 or playoffs contests. Meyers could surface in a more meaningful way in 2020, as the Patriots offense may look very different.

Stephon Gilmore enjoyed his best statistical performance of the year in a 34-13 win over the Bengals on Sunday, totaling two tackles, four passes defended, and two interceptions, returning one for a TD.

Fantasy Impact: Gilmore is arguably the most elite cornerback in the league and displayed his prowess yesterday, grabbing two of Andy Dalton's four interceptions. However, it's hard for him to accumulate a consistent amount of fantasy points on a weekly basis since most quarterbacks are hesitant to attack his side of the field.

Category: Game Recaps

Kyle Van Noy had a minimal impact in a 23-17 loss to Kansas City, grabbing just four solo tackles and one assisted tackle.

Fantasy Impact: Van Noy didn't show up on the stat sheet as much as he normally does, but the Patriots as a team were somewhat out of sorts in their second consecutive loss. The perfect cure for their woes comes in the form of a Week 15 game against Cincinnati, so be sure to get Van Noy into your lineups if he wasn't already there.

Category: Game Recaps

Brandon Bolden rushed once for a 10-yard touchdown in the Patriots' Week 14 loss to the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact: Bolden is primarily a special-teamer and is unlikely to have a reliable role on offense down the stretch. Leave him on waivers.

Category: Game Recaps

Kai Forbath converted his only field goal attempt from short range and hit one of his two extra point tries in the Patriots' Week 13 loss to the Texans.

Fantasy Impact: Forbath has been unsigned for a while before joining the Patriots, and probably for good reason. On an underwhelming offense, there is little juice here for fantasy purposes, and it's not worth the squeeze.
