The Value Of New England Patriots Receivers

When it comes to offense in the NFL, the standard is the New England Patriots. They have a time of options for their quarterback Tom Brady, including wide receivers and tight ends who can catch the ball. When it comes to NFL fantasy football, all of these players are solid options to consider. The important thing to remember is to know when to draft them to avoid the case of reaching.

The top wide receiver for the New England Patriots will be Wes Welker. The veteran knows everything there is to know about Tom Brady and his passing skills, so it makes sense to take him 1st. As far as all wide receivers are concerned, Welker should probably go anywhere from 5th to 10th among wide receivers.

Right on his tail is newcomer Brandon Lloyd. Currently rated as the 17th best NFL fantasy football receiver, Lloyd will look to get plenty of touches from Tom Brady as the season goes along. He has the talent to be a great weapon and really emerge as a serious threat both in real football and fantasy football.

The value of the 2 tight ends the Patriots currently have are about as high as they can be. Rob Gronkowski is perhaps the top tight end when it comes to NFL fantasy football ever, and the only thing that could hurt him is an injury. Aaron Hernandez will also get plenty of touches as a tight end for the Patriots, even if he is second among tight ends on his own team. He will end up being a top 10 tight end in the NFL, and he could even emerge as a top five talent if he continues to improve.

With very little running game, the Patriots will once again rely on big plays through the air. If you own a NFL fantasy football team, any one of these four main receivers will end up being a great option.
