Brandon Myers TE TB 1 Hr
Myers had two catches on two targets for 49 yards in Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Rams.
The 29-year-old tight end's outing followed a six-catch, 41-yard performance in Week 1. Despite the fact Austin Seferian-Jenkins was inactive, Myers was unable to capitalize on his absence with a great showing.
Tim Wright TE NE 1 Hr
Wright was on the field for 8-of-67 snaps on offense in Sunday's win over the Vikings, ESPN.com reports.
Wright, not known for his blocking, did not record a catch in the game, while seeing a limited role in Week 2, with the game plan/flow of the contest leading to a run-heavy approach. We suspect that there will be weeks where Wright sees his share of looks in the passing game, but for now he is a hit-or-miss fantasy proposition.
Josh Gordon WR CLE 1 Hr2 Comments
Gordon (suspension) pled guilty to DWI in North Carolina on Tuesday, CBS Sports reports.
Gordon received 12 months of unsupervised probation and will be required to pay court costs and a fine for his July arrest. Currently suspended for the entire 2014 season, Gordon is believed to be destined to have his punishment reduced to 10 games, pending a final agreement on a new NFL drug-testing policy. However, when considering Gordon's guilty DWI plea, matters are complicated a bit. That's because the new league policy is expected to result in a two-game suspension for conviction of DWI. So while Gordon remains suspended, clarity on his future availability is contingent on the new drug-testing policy being finished.
Adam Vinatieri K IND 1 Hr
Vinatieri made both field goal attempts from 46 and 27 yards along with all three extra point attempts in Monday's loss to Philadelphia.
Vinatieri has made all three field goal attempts this season as he shows no signs of slowing down at age 41.
Michael Hoomanawanui TE NE 1 Hr
Hoomanawanui was on the field for 43-of-67 snaps on offense in Sunday's win over the Vikings, ESPN.com reports.
Hoomanawanui actually saw more snaps than Rob Gronkowski (28) Sunday, but with just catch over the Patriots' first two games, he's not a big factor in the team's passing game.
Brandon Bolden RB NE 1 Hr
Bolden was on the field for 10-of-67 snaps on offense in Sunday's win over the Vikings, ESPN.com reports.
Bolden -- who had four carries for zero yards in the game -- is clearly behind both Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen in the Patriots' running back pecking order, a reality that puts him an injury (to one of the team's top two backs) away from fantasy consideration.
Brandon LaFell WR NE 1 Hr
LaFell was on the field for 38-of-67 snaps on offense in Sunday's win over the Vikings, ESPN.com reports.
LaFell did not record a catch for the second straight game Sunday, though he did suit up over Kenbrell Thompkins, likely due to his presence on the Patriots' special teams. At this stage, LaFell is a break or two away from fantasy relevance.
Dashon Goldson DB TB 1 Hr
Goldson recorded 11 tackles (nine solo) in Sunday's 19-17 loss to St. Louis.
A week after notching nine tackles, the eight-year veteran came through with another strong performance. His recent track record suggests Goldson is unlikely to continue the pace he is currently setting, so his utility in IDP leagues might be short-lived.
Josh McNary DL IND 1 Hr
McNary started at right inside linebacker and had five total tackles in Monday's loss to Philadelphia.
He got the start with Jerrell Freeman out with a hamstring injury. McNary could start again in Week 3.
Bjoern Werner LB IND 2 Hrs
Werner had two total tackles but no sacks or quarterback hits in Monday's loss to Philadelphia.
Werner is set for an expanded role with Robert Mathis out for the season with a torn Achilles. However, he has no sacks and has provided almost no pressure against the quarterback in two games. The Colts need the 2013 first-round pick to improve rapidly.
