      Hollister finished the 2017 regular season with four catches on 10 targets for 42 yards in 15 games.

      Analysis: Hollister, who signed with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent, is under contract with the team through the 2019 season. Looking ahead, he figures to to remain with the team as a reserve option behind Rob Gronkowski, but it wouldn't surprise us to see the team to bring in some added tight end depth this offseason. In such a scenario, Hthe 24-year-old Hollister would face competition for depth chart slotting.

    • Allen finished the 2017 regular season...

      Allen finished the 2017 regular season with 10 catches on 22 targets for 86 yards and a TD.

      Analysis: Signed by the Patriots this past offseason to provide the team with both valuable insurance for, as well as a complementary option to, oft-injured tight end Rob Gronkowski, Allen seemed likely to make a fantasy splash at some point in 2017. However, with Gronkowski avoiding any major in-season injuries, Allen never came close to the sort of production, especially around the red zone, that he did during his stint with the Colts. The 27-year-old is under contract with the Patriots through the 2019 season, but Allen could end up being cut by the team for salary cap purposes, in the absence of a contract restructuring.

    • The Patriots are optimistic that Gronkowski...

      The Patriots are optimistic that Gronkowski (concussion) will be cleared in advance of the Super Bowl LII, which takes place on Feb. 4, the Boston Herald reports.

      Analysis: Gronkowski was forced out of Sunday's AFC championship win over the Jaguars after absorbing a helmet-to-helmet hit. The Patriots' star tight end will benefit from the added time leading up to the Super Bowl, so we expect there's a pretty good chance that he'll gain clearance as the big game approaches. Prior to his second-quarter exit from Sunday's contest, Gronkowski logged 26 snaps, catching one of his three targets for 21 yards. Upon his departure, Dwayne Allen saw an uptick in snaps (39), but did not log a target.

      Cook (knee) said Monday that he has began jogging but remains without a firm timetable to return to full football activities, Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com reports.

      Analysis: The running back is a little over three months removed from surgery to repair a torn ACL in his left knee, so his lack of extensive activity to date shouldn't be viewed as a concern at this stage of his recovery. Assuming Cook endures no significant snags during the rehab process, he should be at or near full strength for the beginning of training camp next summer, though the Vikings will almost certainly monitor his workload carefully during practices. While Latavious Murray and Jerick McKinnon proved to be an effective backfield tandem once the rookie was shut down for the season in Week 5, a healthy Cook profiles as the clear No. 1 back for Minnesota heading into the 2018 campaign.

  • Tom Brady QB-NE

    • Brady said Monday that he would...

      Brady said Monday that he would have the 12 stitches in his right (throwing) hand removed in the coming days, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. "Hopefully some time this week. And at that point, again, because I was fortunate not to tear any ligaments or anything like that [after injuring the hand in practice last week] -- there was no broken bones -- that was obviously the best news I could ever hear based on what you thought it could be," Brady told the "Kirk and Callahan Show." It ended up being a lot of good luck after, I'd say, a pretty unlucky injury. It turned out to be a lot good luck it wasn't more serious than it was."

      Analysis: Brady was listed as questionable heading into Sunday's AFC championship game after teammate Rex Burkhead ran into him during practice earlier this week, resulting in a gash to the quarterback's hand that required stitches to seal up. The hand -- in addition to the first-half departure of top target Rob Gronkowski to a concussion -- ultimately proved to be no issue for Brady, who rallied the Patriots from a 20-10 fourth-quarter deficit and finished with 26 completions on 38 attempts for two touchdowns and no interceptions. With his stitches set to be removed well in advance of the Patriots' Feb. 4 Super Bowl matchup with the Eagles, Brady isn't expected to experience any discomfort as he pursues his sixth NFL title.
