Will the Patriots have enough receiving talent this season?

Recommended Posts

So, given the roster as presently constituted, will the Patriots have enough receiving options at WR; RB; and TE in both quantity and quality to capture another title?

I'm a little concerned...

What say ye, friends?

Worst-case scenario is a repeat of 2013.

They made the AFCCG that year.

They'll be fine.

Absolutely they'll be fine. Last season there was less time to adjust to the departure of so many offensive players. Amendola, Cooks, Dion Lewis and Nate Solder, plus Edelman was suspended the first four games of the season and Gronkowski was in retirement mode after being traded to the Lions and negging the deal. There is more receiving depth, believe it or not, tight, back, and wide. Every position is better than it was in 2018. The passing offense will be more than fine; it will be better than it was last season.

You got Thomas, Gordon and Watson in relief.

 

Starting vs Pittsburgh will likely be Harry, Edelman and Dorsett with LaCosse at TE. Michel probably improved as receiving RB and obviously White is still there.

 

Even without the 3 above mentioned Brady and his weapons are capable of scoring 28 per game which in combination with the defense makes them the SB favorite. 

 

If Gordon comes back, this offense is capable of scoring 32+ per game. We will have to see about him but 28 per game is still very good.

 

It's still a lot better than start of last year. First 3 games last year was Hogan, Dorsett, Patterson and White. No Edelman, no Michel, no Gordon.

 

Michel is back healthy, Edelman is a year removed from his injury, Dorsett more comfortable in the system and you added a dynamic weapon in Harry. 

 

Brady will get the job done with these weapons. If Gordon adds to the mix, watch out. Patriots could be the top scoring offense in football.

The games where everyone is theoretically healthy and available there is a chance they could be the highest scoring team. For the season as a whole however I don't think they're realistically the top scoring team because of some guys on suspensions, first year players, offensive tackle uncertainty, and just the clock killing efficiency the Pats offense is now that reduces shootouts as well as cumulative point totals on the entire season.
