Here are some of the Patriots' fantasy football options this week:

QB Tom Brady had his second-worst fantasy game of the season, and since Week Four is averaging only 258.5 yards, 1.75 TDs and 0.75 interceptions. Keep playing him, as he will snap out of this slump.

RB Kevin Faulk returned to action and saw a prominent role vs. the Steelers, with 6-32-0 rushing and 5-20-0 receiving. BenJarvus Green-Ellis is still the No. 1 back and goal-line back.

RB Danny Woodhead will lose his touches to Faulk or be used sparingly. However, Faulk is only a bye-week or injury fill-in because this backfield will be inconsistent.

WR Deion Branch has three TDs in four games and the Patriots' offense is high-powered. That makes him a legitimate No. 3 or flex receiver this week.

TE Rob Gronkowski is getting it done with yardage and went 7-94-0 last week. He has a two-game average of 7-84-0 and is an every-week play.
