Patriots fantasy football start/sit advice for the team's week 15 match-up against the Miami Dolphins.

Start

Rob Gronkowski, TE: Duh.

Tom Brady, QB: Brady's performance today will likely be dictated by how well the offensive can contain Miami's ferocious rush. Nonetheless, there still aren't many better QB1 options out there.

Brandon LaFell, WR: LaFell might not get the targets or receptions of Julian Edelman, but his ceiling is as high as any receiver on this roster. He had just four catches a week ago, and didn't record a reception in week one against Miami.Look for the Patirots to get him heavily involved today. He's a borderline WR2 in standard formats.

LeGarrette Blount, RB: I'm not normally a fan of starting Patriots running backs, but with the pass rush of the Dolphins, New England is going to want to keep the defense honest with a steady dosage of Blount. He's a low end RB2, but could easily see 15 or 20 carries today.

Sit

Julian Edelman, WR: Edelman remains a must-start in PPR, but with a potential tough match-up today in Brent Grimes, you could do better for a WR3 in standard formats.

Tim Wright, TE: Wright's snap counts have been steadily increasing, and he's now on the field more than Danny Amendola. He's due for a breakout game soon, but until then, he's a shot-in-the-dark TE2.

Shane Vereen, RB: After just a single carry in 35 snaps a week ago, Vereen's role is too unpredictable for RB2, even in PPR leagues. He's still a solid FLEX option in PPR.
