ANALYSIS

Player Analysis: Never the main threat on offense, the undersized Faulk nevertheless plays a large role in the Patriots' offense. The team uses him almost exclusively on passing downs and in screen plays and this service has helped him to garner solid statistics through the years. Now 30, his playing time figures to be diminished with the drafting of Laurence Maroney. However, Faulk's unique ability to make plays when necessary sets him apart and guarantees him some part in the team's game plan. His small size does leave him vulnerable to the possibility of injury similar to that which kept him out of a large chunk of games in the middle of last season.

Fantasy Football Impact: Kevin Faulk is an undersized 30-year-old running back, but as a change-of-pace and a threat to catch the ball out of the backfield he will have a role in the Patriots' game plan every week.

Fullback's blocks help strong Patriots running attack - 10/11/2006

Corey Dillon and Laurence Maroney form an outstanding one-two running punch for the New England Patriots. Kevin Faulk is a reliable receiver out of the backfield.

 

Injury shelves Maroney: Rookie out with leg injury - 09/01/2006
Source: BostonHerald.com, Boston.com, FoxSports.com

A number of Patriots starters sat out last night’s preseason finale as presumably healthy scratches - quarterback Tom Brady, defensive lineman Ty Warren, wide receiver Reche Caldwell. One player supposedly on that list was rookie running back Laurence Maroney. But it was learned last night that Maroney’s reasons for missing the game were anything but benign - he’s injured. The rookie running back and vital piece of the offense has a knee injury and didn’t make the trip to the Meadowlands, staying behind in Foxboro.

Fantasy Impact: An injury to Maroney could be a major blow to a running back corps that spent all of 2005 ravaged by injuries. Although there is no reason to panic until the specifics of the injury are revealed, as Corey Dillon's backup he was expected to give Dillon some rest and put him at less risk of injury.

 

Three backs in the running - 08/21/2006
Source: Boston.com

The top three running backs on the Patriots roster seem to be set: Corey Dillon, Laurence Maroney, and Kevin Faulk. But what about a potential fourth back? That competition got off to an unexpected start in training camp, with seven-year veteran Patrick Pass starting off on the physically unable to perform list (he has yet to practice). Pass's absence has created more opportunities for sixth-year veteran Heath Evans and rookie free agent Patrick Cobbs.

Fantasy Impact: Last season Pass had 472 all-purpose yards as the third back for the Patriots. However, with Maroney in the mix, there will be little production available for Evans, Pass, or Cobbs.
