According to the Boston Herald, Kevin Faulk's role in New England's offense may be expanding. He was very involved in the offense over the weekend and there is speculation he may see time on first and second downs during the season.
Faulk scored six times last season as the third-down back. More playing time could turn him into a viable fantasy threat. Also, if Antowain Smith is out of shape again, Faulk may need to do even more. Stay tuned.
