Here are some of the Patriots' fantasy football options this week:
QB Tom Brady doesn't have elite fantasy production against the Jets. In five games against New York since 2009, he's averaging 284.2 yards, 1.6 TDs and 0.8 interceptions. He's still a No. 1 fantasy QB.
RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis (toe) has been ineffective since suffering his toe injury and has a three-game average of 10.3 attempts for 39.7 yards and zero TDs. He's only a bye-week or injury fill-in.
RB Kevin Faulk (knee) has been limited in practice this week but with the Patriots it's 50-50 if he can go. As part of a committee, he'll be inconsistent and has minimal fantasy value.
RB Danny Woodhead is starting to see more touches with Green-Ellis ineffective and Faulk inactive last week. Woodhead doesn't need big holes to run through and is gaining fantasy value.
TE Rob Gronkowski is playing at an elite level and had his first TD and 100-yard game since Week Three. He has a two-game average of 7.5 catches for 97.5 yards and 0.5 TDs on 12 targets.
