The New England Patriots expect to be relatively healthy at wide receiver for their Week 14 matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs. Julian Edelman and Mohamed Sanu are designated as questionable for the game, but both are expected to play, according to NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport.

The two receivers got in three limited workouts this week. Sanu sat out Week 12 with an ankle sprain but returned in Week 13 to catch three passes for 14 yards. Edelman has not missed any time, but has been on the injury list regularly this season.

Fantasy football analysis: Patriots wide receivers

The Patriots passing game has been inconsistent this season, but they get a great matchup in Week 14 against the Chiefs. Edelman remains a must start, while Sanu is a solid start, but worth considering against your other roster options. His ceiling is a big limited for the time being, but he brings a solid veteran floor. The lack of full practices hurts his chances of building more chemistry with Tom Brady, but c’est la vie.
