Brandon Lloyd limited in practice, fantasy value still not in jeopardy for Week 8

Jim Rogash

Brandon Lloyd has been limited in practice this week. We break down the fantasy implications.

Brandon Lloyd was limited in practice once again on Thursday, as he was listed with a knee injury on the Patriots official report. New England is known for keeping plenty of players out of full practice as the season goes on, so there isn't much concern for Lloyd at this point.

Eleven Patriots were limited for Thursday, a telling sign of how things run there.

Fantasy Impact: Lloyd is fully expected to be in action when the Patriots take on the Rams across the pond. He has been on the injury report in prior weeks, but it hasn't stopped him from playing or missing any time yet.

Antonio Cromartie severely limited Lloyd's value last week, and he might draw Cortland Finnegan this Sunday, creating another tough matchup. His fantasy value still remains decent with Tom Brady throwing the ball.
