Fantasy Analysis | 1411348568
Patriots defense meets its end of the bargain
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Though they were short on big plays against a Raiders team that had a conservative game plan, the Patriots had another strong defensive showing in Week 3. They limited the Raiders to nine points on 297 yards.

They didn't have a sack after recording six at Minnesota last week, but they did have an interception to secure the victory late in the fourth quarter. Defensive lineman Vince Wilfork made a diving grab on a twice-deflected pass with about a minute left to go.

The Patriots DST could be in for another strong showing Week 4 at Kansas City. It remains a top Fantasy option.

Vance Wilfork has game-clinching interception
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork was in the right place at not only the right time, but also the best possible time Week 3 against Oakland. With the Raiders on the verge of scoring a game-tying touchdown with about a minute to play in the fourth quarter, a pass intended for Denarius Moore was deflected off two Patriots defenders and into a diving Wilfork's arms for a game-clinching interception.

It was the third interception of Wilfork's career. The other two came in 2011. He finished Week 3 with three tackles, including one solo.

Jerod Mayo big on tackles, as usual
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo led the team with 11 tackles, including three solo, Week 3 against Oakland. It was his second game in three this season with double-digit tackles.

Mayo played only six games last season, but he recorded 55 tackles, averaging 9.2 per game.

Patriots standouts don't stand out
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Patriots defensive linemen Chandler Jones and Rob Ninkovich, who are normally among their top performers defensively, didn't do much statistically Week 3 against Oakland. Jones had two tackles, including one solo, and Ninkovich had six tackles, including two solo.

Ninkovich's six tackles were actually a season high, but he still has only one sack this season. Jones has two.

Another big game for Stephen Gostkowski
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski was 3 for 3 on field goals for the second straight game Week 3 against Oakland. He hit a 21-yarder in the second quarter, a 20-yarder in the fourth and a 36-yarder in the fourth. He also had an extra point. He has made at least two field goals in each of his three games this season.

The Patriots visit the Chiefs in Week 4.
