The New England Patriots held off a scrappy Oakland Raiders team Sunday to go 2-1 on the young season. They've managed to do so without leaning much on Rob Gronkowski, who still is working his way back from reconstructive knee surgery. After reeling in three of six targets for 44 yards and a score Sunday, Gronk now has 11 receptions on 23 targets for 116 yards and 2 TDs.

More work going forward for Run-DMC?

When the Oakland Raiders brought Maurice Jones-Drew into the fold during the offseason, the concern was that with all of the wear and tear he's put on his body as he nears 30, he may not hold up. While we may not be able to blame a broken hand on age or workload, the end result is the same: he missed last week's game.

It appears he also will sit out Sunday's tilt with the New England Patriots.

"The #Raiders are not expecting to have RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) today vs. #Patriots, I’m told. Will be Darren McFadden & Latavius Murray," tweeted NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

Big game in store for Colts TEs?

Although fantasy owners aren't exactly clamoring to add Jacksonville Jaguars skill players to their lineups, the Jags' shoddy defense has helped create plenty of quality weekly fantasy options for their opponents. That's particularly true for opposing tight ends.

"Over the last 16 games, the Jaguars have allowed opposing tight ends to catch 99 passes for 1,155 yards and 11 touchdowns," noted Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times-Union.

"That’s without facing arguably the NFL’s two best tight ends in New Orleans’ Jimmy Graham and New England’s Rob Gronkowski. Also, the Jaguars are 4-12 in that span with opponents regularly leading by double-digits late and not throwing the ball."
