New England Patriots wide receiver Brandon Lloyd was limited in practice this week. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

New England Patriots wide receiver Brandon Lloyd was limited in Wednesday's practice with an apparent thigh injury, via Shalise Manza. The Patriots wide out has performed in the team's first two outings, and it does not appear this nick to his leg will keep him out in a huge Week 3 game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Analysis: All players get roughed up during the season, but this is hardly anything for fantasy owners to sweat about. Lloyd being limited in practice was likely a precautionary move by the team, as he should be active and contributing in Week 4 against the Ravens. With Tom Brady at the helm and New England in need of a win, Lloyd is a must-start this weekend.
