Quarterback Tom Brady likely won’t have his only reliable receiving threats to go against the Atlanta Falcons this week.

The New England Patriots won’t be getting their All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski back this week, and receiver Danny Amendola has only played one full game before suffering an injured groin in the Week 1 win over the Buffalo Bills, he hasn’t returned to the field since, and he too won’t again this Sunday:


Rookie receivers Josh Boyce, Aaron Dobson and Kenbrell Thompkins will once again be counted on to step-up for Brady, but this week vs the Falcons will be their biggest test thus far.

The three rookies haven’t done much through two weeks, but they’ll be getting plenty of targets this week as they try to keep up with a Falcons offense that scores a lot of point in the Georgia Dome, and there will be a lot of fantasy football production to go around in this game.
