It’s no secret that New England Patriots’ HC Bill Belichick can care less about people’s fantasy teams! Belichick always has prioritized winning.
It should come as no surprise that New England Patriots’ HC Bill Belichick isn’t much fun. This latest statement regarding fantasy football only confirms the theory further. Many Patriots supporters understand Belichick has always brought a no-nonsense kind of approach to the team. Recently, during Belichick’s press conference, he was asked about fantasy football and he didn’t disappoint. Prior to Belichick’s response, he gave a smirking grin, and proceeded to say:
"“Honestly, I don’t really have any opinion on that because fantasy football doesn’t mean anything to me,” reported Thomas Neumann for Sports Illustrated. “We’re just trying to win games out here. I don’t know who’s hot, who’s not, who wins, who doesn’t. I don’t really care about that. I just care about whether we win.“Yeah, have fun with that.”"
History of drafting New England Patriot players under Bill Belichick
Anyone who’s ever drafted any player from the New England Patriots understands how hard it is to predict the outcome of the games for that individual player. Usually, the game plan the Pats bring is specifically scripted for the opposing team, therefore, making it hard to key on who’s the focus for that week. Many understand attempting to draft a Patriots’ RB in hopes they perform well that specific week is equivalent to hitting the lottery.
However, there are some interesting acquisitions being added to the offense this upcoming season. Former players and new acquisitions may take on bigger roles here in New England than elsewhere. Patriots’ QB Mac Jones appears to be having a phenomenal camp which indicates they may trust him more in the offense. Therefore, allowing him to throw more than many are accustomed too which will give many more players opportunities in the passing game. The Patriots’ offensive line is solid, which will only reinforce the run game, so many can expect big seasons with our premier RBs as well. Ultimately, it’ll be up to the owner of the team to make the decisions, however, things are changing in New England and it can be an opportunity to capitalize for fantasy teams this year.
