Update: According to the Boston Globe, WR Wes Welker missed practice today, while WR Julian Edelman was limited with an ankle injury.
Fantasy Impact: Welker's status is up in the air right now, but expect Edelman to fill in for Welker like he did last week; stay tuned.
Update: ESPN's Michael Smith reports that Wes Welker (knee) "expects" to play in week three, despite not practicing Wednesday.
Fantasy Impact: Welker will most likely be a game-time decision on Sunday; I feel he will play this week against the Falcons.
Update: Patriots writer Ian R. Rapoport talked about WR Brandon Tate continuing his process to get back to the football field. Tate said, “It’s real frustrating not being able to play your first few games in the NFL,” Tate said yesterday during a rare appearance in the locker room. “But I have it in my head I’m ready for a long journey. I’m just going to continue to get better.”
Update: According to the Boston Globe, starting QB Tom Brady puts blame on 1-1 start to the season to poor technique.
Fantasy Impact: He hasn't been doing very good for fantasy owners this year thus far throwing only two touchdowns along with two interceptions; look for Brady and the Pats to get it together as the season goes on.
Update: According to the Boston Globe, Patriots Head Coach Bill Belicheck didn't say much about WR Wes Welker's knee injury.
Fantasy Impact: The Patriots never release anything about injuries to the league; Welker was a late scratch Sunday and is 50/50 at this point to play next Sunday.
Update: Jets rookie QB Mark Sanchez had 14 completions for 163 yards and a TD against the Patriots on Sunday.
Fantasy Impact: I think few people would think that Mark Sanchez would start 2-0 for the Jets this year. He can be picked up in a Plug-N-Play situation.
Update: Patriots QB Tom Brady did not throw a touchdown and had a pick in the loss against the Jets.
Fantasy Impact: It seems that Tom Brady could have used WR Wes Welker in the Patriots loss this Sunday. Expect Brady to rebound nicely in next weeks matchup.
Update: The New England Patriots lead the New York Jets 9-3 at the end of the first half.
Fantasy Impact: Pats Kicker Stephen Gostkowski has three field goals, while Kicker Jay Feely has one for the Jets.
Update: According to NFL.com, the Patriots inactives are MLB Jerod Mayo, WR Wes Welker, G Dan Connolly, TE Michael Matthews, G Kendall Simmons, WR Matt Slater, CB Terrence Wheatley.
Fantasy Impact: Wes Welker's injury was just too much to overcome for him to play against the Jets this week; Expect more looks to WR Randy Moss, TE Ben Watson and WR Joey Galloway.
On the eve of Week two of the NFL season, it is time to take a look back at Week one, and focus in on what we expected to happen and what actually went down in a few of the most notable games of the week.
New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills:
Expected Result - Tom Brady and company waltz into Buffalo and blow the Bills right out of the building.
Actual Result - A very close ball game, that the Bills choked away late, giving the chance to let Brady be Brady.
