The New England Patriots haven’t won a playoff game since winning the Super Bowl in the 2018 season after falling short of the postseason last season. The Patriots finished with an 8-9 record and are clearly not the favorite in the AFC East with a projected win total at 7.5 according to DraftKings Sportsbook. This feels like a crucial year for a franchise that looks to get back on track.

Here’s a look at the projected offensive depth chart for the 2023 Patriots following the 2023 NFL Draft.

Player most impacted by NFL Draft for fantasy football

As you can see, the Patriots did not select an offensive player through the first two days of the NFL Draft, so there won’t be a significant fantasy football impact from this draft. Kayshon Boutte could have some promise as a long-term option, but he will be New England’s fifth wide receiver at best in his rookie year.
