New England Patriots - 2015 Projections

New England Patriots


Overall Outlook
The Patriots won it all in 2014, then the rain came down on the parade in the offseason. Bill Belichick has lost key veterans in Vereen, Ridley, Revis, Browner, Wilfork, and Arrington. The Pats may also miss Tom Brady for four games depending on the suspension litigation. However, New England still has plenty of studs, and Gronk, Edelman, Collins, and Jones will keep this team in contention and align itself toward a 15th straight winning season.

Offseason Moves
Key additions: QB Matt Flynn, RB Travaris Cadet, WR Brandon Gibson, TE Scott Chandler, TE Fred Davis, DE/OLB Jabaal Sheard, CB Robert McClain, CB Bradley Fletcher, CB Chimdi Chekwa
Key losses: RB Shane Vereen, RB Stevan Ridley, TE Tim Wright, G Dan Connolly, NT Vince Wilfork, DE/OLB Akeem Ayers, ILB Jonathan Casillas, ILB Chris White, CB Darrelle Revis, CB Brandon Browner, CB Kyle Arrington

Offensive Outlook
The Patriots offense is the definition of consistency in the NFL. They have been a top four scoring unit for the last 6 years, and have used a plethora of weapons throughout those seasons. This year will be no different, with LeGarrette Blount and Reggie Wayne in the fold, look for this crew to rack up the points again in 2015.  

Projections - 2015
QB1 - Tom Brady - Passing - 4000 yds / 30 tds 
RB1 - LeGarrette Blount - Rushing - 800 yds / 7 tds  Receiving - 30 recs / 200 yds / 2 tds
RB2 - Jonas Gray - Rushing - 350 yds / 3 tds  Receiving - 10 recs / 100 yds / 0 tds
WR1 - Julian Edelman - Receiving - 90 recs / 1050 yds / 6 tds
WR2 - Brandon LaFell - Receiving - 75 recs / 800 yds / 5 tds
WR3 - Reggie Wayne - Receiving - 50 recs / 500 yds / 3 tds
TE1 - Rob Gronkowski - Receiving - 90 recs / 1300 yds / 13 tds

Defensive Outlook
The Patriots defense lost plenty of contributors from the 2014 season. They did what they could in the draft by selecting NT Malcom Brown, S Jordan Richards, DE/OLB Geneo Grissom, DE/OLB and Trey Flowers. However, rookies take time to develop, so we expect the Patriots defense to take a step back in 2015. In IDP leagues, guys like Chandler Jones, Jamie Collins and Patrick Chung are primed for exceptional seasons.

Projections - 2015
DE1 - Chandler Jones - 75 total Ts / 11 sacks / 3 passes defensed / 4 total TOs
DE2 - Rob Ninkovich - 70 total Ts / 6 sacks / 1 pass defensed / 3 total TOs
DT1 - Malcom Brown - 50 total Ts / 5 sacks / 2 passes defensed / 2 total TOs
DT2 - Alan Branch - 35 total Ts / 2 sacks / 2 passes defensed / 1 total TO
OLB1 - Jamie Collins -  125 total Ts / 3 sacks / 5 passes defensed / 4 total TOs
OLB2 - Dont'a Hightower - 90 total Ts / 3 sacks / 2 passes defensed / 3 total TOs
MLB - Jerod Mayo - 105 total Ts / 3 sacks / 3 passes defensed / 3 total TOs
CB1 - Malcolm Butler - 50 total Ts / 0 sacks / 14 passes defensed / 5 total TOs
CB2 - Bradley Fletcher50 total Ts / 0 sacks / 10 passes defensed / 2 total TOs
S1 - Patrick Chung - 75 total Ts / 0 sacks / 7 passes defensed / 2 total TOs
S2 - Devin McCourty -  70 total Ts / 1 sack / 3 passes defensed / 3 total TOs
