Fantasy Football Outlook: With the additions of Brandon Lloyd and Jabar Gaffney, it’s not a given that Deion Branch will even make the team, let alone start. Only time will tell but don’t be surprised if Branch is a late training camp cut, as Bill Belichick has been known to release veterans just before the season begins.

Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections

With the addition of Chad Ochocinco, veteran Deion Branch figures to be the No.3 receiver on the Patriots depth chart. Branch will probably be worth owning in twelve team leagues and deeper, but he should be looked at as respectable depth at the end of your draft.

Point is, Tom Brady will spread the football around and while Ochocinco and Wes Welker are solid starting options, Branch won’t get enough looks to be a consistent factor, unless one of the mentioned receivers above falls to injury.

June 2011

Every year seems to have a theme(s) that occur and in 2011 it was the return of the white running back and veteran receivers that were declared dead, that came back to life. Brandon Lloyd, Mike Williams and Deion Branch were all considered to be irrelevant for a few years now but because Williams took a starting job in Seattle, the team was fine with trading away Branch to the Patriots.

With Randy Moss gone and Wes Welker in his first year back from an ACL injury, Branch was inserted back into the Patriots starting lineup to work with Tom Brady again. Right away, Branch became a player worth owning and proved to be a worthy option to use in starting lineups in the second half of the season.

Heading into the summer Branch’s ADP value on Mock Draft Central is listed as the 33rd receiver (82.30 average pick) selected in standard redraft leagues and that would make him a 3rd or 4th receiver to have on your depth chart. Because of Branch’s injury concerns and that the Patriots spread the football around, I believe Branch is a solid 4th receiver to have in ten team leagues.
