RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2015

Slater isn't on the fantasy radar, but his special teams play and the leadership he brings to the Patriots keeps his roster spot with the team fairly secure heading into the 2015 campaign.

2014

Isn't on the fantasy radar, but Slater's special teams play and the leadership he brings to the table keeps his roster spot with the Patriots secure.

2013

Officially a depth wideout, Slater will continue to earn most of his keep with the Patriots as a key special-teamer. His prowess in that area has earned him two trips to the Pro Bowl.

2012

Slater is a depth wideout for the Patriots, but he will continue to earn most of his keep with the Patriots as a key special-teamer.

2011

A depth receiver who has stuck around this long thanks to his special team's play.

2010

A depth wideout, who earns most of his keep in the return game.

2009

Will need to flash his special teams skills in training camp to stick withe Patriots as a returner/depth wideout.

2008

Slater, who the Patriots traded up to draft, should stick with the team since his skills as a returner should help the likes of Ellis Hobbs and Wes Welker focus more on their starting assignments, rather than special teams.
