New England Patriots wide receiver N'Keal Harry was expected to do big things when he was drafted by the team. Sadly, injuries derailed his rookie season, but he is hopeful to bounce back in 2020. Harry hauled in five of six targets for 39 yards in the Week 1 victory over the Miami Dolphins. The Patriots use a run-heavy offense, but Harry should still get plenty of targets each week. He'll face off against a Seattle Seahawks Defense in Week 2 that allowed the most fantasy points to wide receivers last season. Harry doesn't have great upside here, but could possibly be used as a low-end WR3 in Week 2.
New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman technically didn't even start their Week 1 contest against the Miami Dolphins. However, he was on the field for a majority of their offensive snaps. Edelman finished with five receptions on seven targets for 57 yards. The Patriots are lacking reliable options, so quarterback Cam Newton should look his way quite often. Edelman will have a tougher matchup against the Seattle Seahawks Defense in Week 2. Although, the Seahawks gave up the most fantasy points to wide receivers last season. Fantasy owners should be able to trust Edelman as a WR3 and possibly low-end WR2 for Week 2.
New England Patriots running back James White is likely going to be an important part of the offense this season. The team likes to use him in both the running and passing game quite often. White rushed five times for 22 yards and hauled in all three of his targets for 30 yards through the air. He probably would've been more involved, but the Patriots were running away with the game versus the Miami Dolphins in Week 1. There should be more chances for White against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2. He'll be a flex option for PPR leagues, but probably won't be anything more than a risky RB3 without PPR scoring.
New England Patriots running back Sony Michel was the starter for their Week 1 matchup against the Miami Dolphins. He rushed 10 times for 37 yards and one touchdown. His lone touchdown was at the goal line, but quarterback Cam Newton figures to get plenty of chances there as well. The Patriots are going to use a run-heavy offense, which is good news for Michel's value. However, he'll get a matchup against a tougher Seattle Seahawks Defense in Week 2. Fantasy owners should be able to trust Michel as a RB3 or maybe a low-end flex option.
New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton had a promising first start with his new team in Week 1. He completed 15 of 19 passes for 155 yards and rushed 15 times for 75 yards and two touchdowns. However, it was against the Miami Dolphins below average defense, so it's not time to get carried away here. Newton has the potential to be a QB1 this season, assuming he can stay healthy. He'll have a tougher matchup this week against the Seattle Seahawks Defense. Newton should be able to be trusted as a QB1, assuming he can continue to get it done with his legs.
