Patriots fantasy football advice for their week four match-up against the Chiefs.

Patriots fantasy football advice for their week four match-up against the Chiefs:

Start

Stevan Ridley, RB: Patriots have continued to rely on Ridley as the early-down workhorse. If they show the commitment to the run they have the last two weeks (which they likely will against this Chiefs pass rush), he should have another 20+ touch game. Start him as an RB2/flex.

Julian Edelman, WR: Until Tom Brady shows that he's on speaking terms with another receiver on this roster, Edelman is a WR2 in regular formats and a borderline WR1 in PPR.

Rob Gronkowski, TE: Gronkowski has seen his snap count increase every game this year. With more snaps, comes more Gronk spikes.

Sit

Tom Brady, QB: Until he can put up some numbers, it's going to be hard to start him unless you're in a deeper league. His upside is still high, but until the offensive line sorts itself out, it will be difficult to trust Brady in fantasy.

Shane Vereen, RB: He could get going in PPR because of the Chiefs rush, but he just isn't seeing enough touches to be a factor in non-PPR formats.
