Patriots fantasy football start / sit advice for their week eight match-up against the Chicago Bears:

Start

Shane Vereen, RB: Vereen is struggling with an illness this week, but is active, and will still likely be relied upon as both a runner and receiver this week.

Rob Gronkowski, TE: Bears have some vunerabilities in the middle and have given up a lot of fantasy points to tight ends lately, but you were starting Gronk anyways.

Tom Brady, QB: Brady is on a roll, and he's still angry, and you'd be crazy not to start angry Tom Brady.

Julian Edelman, WR: He's about due for a breakout game, and the Bears run a lot of zone, so it could be today.

Sit

Brandon LaFell: Bears defensive back are not bad, and LaFell's targets are still too inconsistent to trust as anything more than a WR4.

Jonas Gray / Brandon Bolden: Both are likely to see an increased workload today, but not anything worth playing. Gray might be worth a stash in deep leagues.
