As successful as the Patriots have been since 2001, fantasy football dominance hasn’t been as consistent. The reality of the “next man up” mentality has often been collective victory at the price of individual stats.

Still, plenty of Patriots players have achieved statistical greatness through the years of the Bill Belichick-Tom Brady dynasty. Whether it was Corey Dillon in 2004, Randy Moss in 2007, Rob Gronkowski in several seasons, or Brady over most of his career, New England’s offense has produced its fair share of fantasy superstars.

Looking to 2019 fantasy football rankings, a few Patriots players have the possibility to make a serious impact.
