2015 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
New England Patriots
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Patriots will have to get by early in the year while Tom Brady is suspended. If they come out of that pretty unscathed, this team can make some noise once again. The offense is consistent and the defense is underrated at times. The Patriots are a complete team that knows how to finish games and make the big play when needed. New England is a playoff team that should challenge for another Super Bowl title in 2015.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
You never know how is going to emerge at running back for the Patriots, but the prospects of James White getting more work this season look good. He could be the Shane Vereen-type back in this offense this year. He has a similar skillset. White isnâ??t a sure thing by any means but he is worth a late-round grab come draft day. If he starts getting consistent work, he can get around 1,000 total yards and five or six touchdowns in this offense. White is ready to take a step forward this season if given the chance.
FANTASY DUD
Julian Edelman has become the top receiver for the Patriots. He has 197 receptions the past two seasons. But donâ??t overlook the fact Edelman has just 10 touchdowns the past two seasons and topped 1,000 yard just once the past two years. He gets his catches but the rest of his numbers arenâ??t great. And you have to worry about him wearing down some after all the touches the past two seasons. It wouldnâ??t surprise to see Edelman take a step backwards this coming season.
