Patriots inactives: QB Matt Gutierrez (3rd), RB Laurence Maroney, WR Kelley Washington, RB LaMont Jordan, G/C Dan Connolly, LB Eric Alexander, OT Wesley Britt, OLB Shawn Crable.
Analysis: RB Sammy Morris should see the lion’s share of carries with Maroney and Jordan both out. He’s a solid fantasy option as a flex starter. RB Kevin Faulk should also see more work and has added value in PPR formats.
Chargers inactives: QB Charlie Whitehurst (3rd), WR Chris Chambers, LB Derek Smith, G Kynan Forney, TE Kris Wilson, LB Jyles Tucker, T Corey Clark, DT Ian Scott.
Analysis: WR Craig Davis will start in the absence of Chambers. WR Vincent Jackson is active and should see more than his share of targets against the Patriots. RB LaDainian Tomlinson is active and will start, as expected.
