Miami Dolphins Fantasy News & Notes

Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) is practicing in full for Week 4 against the Patriots. Tannehill's shoulder injury is not a concern. The 30-year-old gets an attackable matchup against the slumping Patriots in Week 4, though beating the Pats on their home field is never an easy assignment. Coming off a three-touchdown performance against Oakland in Week 3, Tannehill will be a QB2 consideration.

New England Patriots Fantasy News & Notes

Rob Gronkowski (ankle) remained "limited" on Thursday. Gronk's injury is not a concern. Getting him going against the Dolphins will be a Week 4 point of emphasis for the Patriots.

NFL Betting Trends

Miami

The over is 10-4 in the Dolphins’ last 14 games overall.

New England

The under is 6-2 in the Patriots’ last eight games coming off a straight up loss.

Prediction

The Patriots will get some of their injured defensive players back this week and for as bad as they played last week in Detroit, I don’t think we’ll see the same poor defense. If we do, that’s still good for the under because that means the Dolphins will be able to run the ball down the Pats’ throats like the Lions did a week ago. Either way, I expect this game to be low-scoring. This is not the same New England offense that we’ve grown accustomed to seeing. Until Josh Gordon proves to be healthy and knows the offense, the Pats will continue to have zero outside help in the passing game. Teams will continue to double-team Gronk and the Pats will be forced to try and play ball control to help Tom Brady and the defense.
