The Patriots will have former Defensive Player of the Year Stephon Gilmore in the lineup this Sunday, and he's expected to shadow DeAndre Hopkins. That said, Gilmore hasn't been playing at his usual pace this season, and he's been somewhat of a liability in coverage. (Patriots on Twitter)

Betting Impact:

It seemed like Gilmore would be good to go all week, so this news was probably baked into the betting lines. I don't expect him to limit Hopkins that effectively, however, so Arizona remains my favored pick here. The Patriots have given up the highest rate of explosive passing plays, too, so a player like Hopkins or Christian Kirk could make a few splash plays to help Arizona cover.
