The biggest news coming out of Sunday Night Football is that the Patriots finally lost. The second biggest news is the fortunately non-serious injury to Gronk. But for IDP purposes, the news that matters the most is that Dont’a Hightower went down with an MCL sprain and is likely out for the rest of the fantasy season. He joins Jamie Collins (still out with a mysterious illness) on the shelf, which leaves a lot of opportunity for stats in New England. Jonathan Freeny has stepped in nicely so far, and is very possibly owned in your league. But the more intriguing name to me is Jerod Mayo, who is thrust back into the spotlight after an extremely disappointing season so far. It will be interesting to see how he reacts to a large increase in snaps, but he’s got one of the highest ceilings of any available LB in most leagues.

Please, blog, may I have some more?
