Patriots | Patriots QBs splitting reps

Fri, 27 May 2016 11:28:02 -0700

New England Patriots QBs Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo split first-team repetitions at practice Thursday, May 26. Last year, Brady dominated the top-tier work.

Fantasy Tip: This is a strong signal that the team is indeed bracing for Brady's four-game suspension. That's bad news for everyone all around from a fantasy perspective, at least as far as the first quarter of the season is concerned, but that doesn't mean Garoppolo can't come through. After all, he was able to shine when he got some playing time early on in the 2014 season. Brady is still worth a high pick despite the suspension, as he should return elite value as always.

Patriots | Martellus Bennett, Tom Brady connecting

Thu, 26 May 2016 15:44:03 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady and TE Martellus Bennett connected several times in the red zone, including some touchdowns, during organized team activities Thursday, May 26. Bennett was New England's primary tight end in practice with TE Rob Gronkowski (undisclosed) not practicing.

Fantasy Tip: As long as Gronk is healthy, Bennett will play second fiddle. Bennett could prove to be a viable red-zone threat, though, and is still worth drafting as a TE2 in his new confines.

Patriots | Tom Brady to file appeal

Mon, 23 May 2016 05:16:12 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady's legal team will officially file its appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit Monday, May 23, which is the deadline to do so. "The facts here are so drastic and so apparent that the court should rehear it," attorney Ted Olson said.

Fantasy Tip: Brady had his four-game suspension reinstated in the offseason, but he was able to wiggle free the first time. If you're drafting early, he's still worth taking as an upper-middle quarterback. You'll just have to burn a higher pick than normal on a backup in the low-end QB1 range.

Patriots | Tom Brady has more time to appeal

Tue, 03 May 2016 13:52:16 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady's deadline to appeal his four-game suspension has been extended to May 23, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: For now the odds seem to be against Brady winning an appeal. Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to start the first four games of the 2016 season while Brady serves his pending suspension. Even with Brady likely out four games, he's still worth drafting as a low-end QB1.

Patriots | Tom Brady talks with NFL unlikely

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 16:54:37 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady and the NFL are not expected to talk anymore regarding a settlement, according to a source. The league doesn't believe the NFL Players' Association or any of Brady's representatives have provided a reason to renew settlement talks. Brady's suspension was recently upheld by a federal appeals court and he is expected to miss the first four games of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Jimmy Garoppolo will stand in for Brady for the start of the season. Brady shouldn't immediately be viewed as outside of starting fantasy quarterback territory, either. He can still put up QB1 numbers in 12 games.

Patriots | Tom Brady not accepting ruling

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 13:37:41 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady will not yet accept the court ruling of his four-game suspension, according to sources. He is mulling options with his legal team.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't be a big surprise, as Brady didn't go down without a fight before with Deflategate. For now we can anticipate that Brady will miss the first four games of the season, though. Even if he does miss that time, he's still worth drafting as a low-end QB1.

Patriots | Tom Brady's appeal chances not good

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 10:43:18 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady's chances of winning an appeal after his four-game suspension was reinstated are not good, according to director of Tulane Sports Law Program Gabe Feldman. "But Tom Brady's next step is to make an en banc appeal to ask the entire second circuit to hear that -- those are very rarely granted. And even more rare is the Supreme Court to hear this case. So Tom Brady is almost out of chances. I think any chance he has left is very slim," Feldman said.

Fantasy Tip: Brady's fantasy value takes a significant hit leading into the 2016 season. He's more likely a midrange QB1 now with a second successful appeal unlikely. Jimmy Garoppolo will now likely start the first four games against the Arizona Cardinals, Miami Dolphins, Houston Texans and Buffalo Bills. None of those four matchups have much appeal to use Garoppolo as a sleeper QB in daily formats.

Patriots | Tom Brady's suspension restored

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 08:54:58 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady had his four-game suspension from last season reinstated by a U.S. Appeals court Monday, April 25.

Fantasy Tip: Here we go again. If this holds, Brady's fantasy value will dwarf into the tail end of the midrange QB1 area. This doesn't mean he'll miss the first four weeks yet as he found a way out of it last season. So continue to monitor the story. Jimmy Garoppolo would likely start the first four weeks, but he would only be a desperation fantasy play if your starter suffered an injury.

Patriots | Tom Brady has team-friendly deal

Thu, 10 Mar 2016 05:47:52 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady's two-year extension includes $41 million in new money. His salary cap figures are $14 million in 2016 and 2017, and $22 million in 2018 and 2019.

Fantasy Tip: Brady is advancing in age, but his play hasn't shown much of it. He would benefit from another dependable receiver, but Brady is a QB to target after the top two or three are gone in fantasy drafts.

Patriots | Tom Brady agrees to extension

Mon, 29 Feb 2016 07:11:37 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady agreed to a two-year extension through the 2019 season Monday, Feb. 29, according to sources. The deal has Brady signed through age 42.

Fantasy Tip: Brady remains an upper-level fantasy quarterback just under the elite tier.
