New England Patriots QB Tom Brady was hit a season-high 23 times in a 20-18 loss to the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 24. Entering the game, Brady hadn't been hit more than 12 times.

Fantasy Tip: Brady tossed a pair of interceptions, but he also managed to throw for 310 yards in the final game of another strong season. Expect Brady to deliver QB1 production once again in 2016.

Patriots | Tom Brady tops 300 yards

Sun, 24 Jan 2016 16:12:36 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed 27 of his 56 pass attempts for 310 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions in a 20-18 loss to the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Brady was pressured all game and was sacked four times. He still managed a decent final line against a stout Denver defense, and he continues to prove he is a reliable QB1 regardless of his supporting cast.

Patriots | Tom Brady struggled against four-man rush

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 15:07:26 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady had a QBR of 4.1 when he was pressured by a four-man or fewer pass rush in 2015, which ranked 28th among 35 qualifying passers. Nineteen% of Brady's dropbacks this year ended with him being pressured without a blitz this year, which was the ninth-highest percentage in football. However, Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Wade Phillips loves to bring extra rushers.

The Broncos sent five or more men after the quarterback 41.7% of the time this year, the fourth-highest rate in the league. The Broncos were successful creating pressure without blitzing, too, as they allowed an opponent's QBR of just 8.7 in those situations this year. They also created pressure in those situations 19.2% of opposing team dropbacks, which ranked sixth in the league.

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos must get a pass rush on Brady ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) in order to have a shot to win, and even then it might be tough. When you consider that Brady had three scores and almost 300 yards in Week 12 against this same great defense without most of his offensive weapons, you have to consider him a great FantasyScore pick this time around.

Patriots | Tom Brady, Brandon LaFell probable

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 12:55:25 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) and WR Brandon LaFell (foot) both practiced in full all week and are probable for the AFC Championship against the Denver Broncos Sunday, Jan. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Brady ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) looks like a real nice pick this weekend, even against a strong Broncos defense. He had three touchdowns and almost 300 yards against them in Week 12 while missing Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman. LaFell ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) will be overlooked for a reason; he struggles to do much in the offense when Amendola and Edelman are healthy.

Patriots | Tom Brady, Brandon LaFell practice

Thu, 21 Jan 2016 14:29:14 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) and WR Brandon LaFell (foot) both practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Seeing as Brady ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) came close to 300 yards and three touchdowns against the Denver Broncos in Week 12 without most of his offensive firepower, he's a solid daily pick this weekend. LaFell ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) was overshadowed last week with Julian Edelman returning, and LaFell is more of a deep sleeper.

Patriots | Tom Brady has quick release

Thu, 21 Jan 2016 11:17:54 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady averaged 2.8 seconds from snap to throw during the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Brady ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) is extremely dangerous and attractive to FantasyScore users with all his offensive weapons healthy, even against a Denver Broncos defense that ranked first against the pass this year. Brady managed three touchdowns and 280 yards passing in Week 12 at Denver.

Patriots | Tom Brady, Brandon LaFell practice

Wed, 20 Jan 2016 14:55:48 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) and WR Brandon LaFell (foot) both practiced in full Wednesday, Jan. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Brady ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) put up 280 yards and three touchdowns with limited weapons against the Denver Broncos earlier this year, so one has to figure he'll be solid yet again with a healthy receiving corps. LaFell ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) had just three catches for six yards last week and will take a back seat with Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman healthy now.

Patriots | Tom Brady faces tough matchup

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 20:06:06 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady will square off against the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 24. The Broncos led the NFL in passing defense in the regular season, allowing just 199.6 yards per game, and they were tied for the least amount of pass plays of 40 or more yards allowed (five).

Fantasy Tip: Despite the tough matchup Brady ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) is still a top FantasyScore option with just four selections at the quarterback position, and TE Rob Gronkowski ($8,000) healthy and at his disposal. Look for the combination to hook up for at least one touchdown in a potentially low-scoring game.

Patriots | Tom Brady hasn't had success in Denver

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 09:51:48 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady is 2-6 in his career in games played in Denver against the Broncos. "It's a great football environment. They've had some good teams when we've played out there," Brady said. "I didn't realize we were 2-6, but the crowd gets into it. … We've had a lot of close games there. I think it always comes down to something at the end."

Fantasy Tip: Brady hasn't had much team success in Denver, but he did throw for 280 yards and three touchdowns against the Broncos earlier this year without most of his offensive playmakers. That bodes well for his chances of finding success in the AFC Championship this weekend.

Patriots | Tom Brady great in middle of field

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 09:18:58 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady has 2,930 passing yards between the numbers in the middle of the field this year, which was the second most in the league. However, the Denver Broncos held Brady to his lowest completion percentage (48.0%) between the numbers in the last four seasons, including the playoffs.

Fantasy Tip: Brady had 280 yards and three touchdowns in his matchup with the Broncos in an overtime loss earlier this year, but he also was without both Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola, and Rob Gronkowski was lost to injury during the game. Despite facing the top defense against the pass, Brady should be able to put up respectable numbers on the road with all of his weapons in tow.
