Patriots | New England unlikely to rest starters

Mon, 26 Dec 2016 09:24:19 -0800

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick hinted he would not be resting his starters in Week 17, suggesting Tom Brady, LeGarrette Blount and Julian Edelman among others will play their full complement of snaps in Week 17 against the Miami Dolphins. "I don't understand that question. I don't know how many starters we have," Belichick told reporters after being asked about resting starters in the season finale.

Fantasy Tip: Another Belichickian gem for sure, but it makes sense as the Patriots try to lock up home-field advantage in the AFC next weekend. Brady, Blount and Edelman should all be started without hesitation in Week 17.

Patriots | Tom Brady faces tough test

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 15:56:25 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady is facing the NFL's No. 1 ranked defense in the Baltimore Ravens this week. He has fared well against elite defenses in his career, however, amassing a 6-0 record with 12 touchdowns and just three interceptions in home games versus No. 1 defenses.

Fantasy Tip: Brady is a matchup-proof quarterback as has been evidenced throughout his career. He can spread the ball around to anyone and doesn't need Rob Gronkowski in order to be an elite fantasy quarterback. Start him as you normally would despite the difficult matchup.

Patriots | Tom Brady earns 201st victory

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 16:14:37 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed 33 of his 46 pass attempts for 269 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Rams. With the win, he became the winningest quarterback in NFL history with 201 victories. "It's always been about winning, and I've been very fortunate to be on a lot of great teams," Brady said. "I'm really grateful."

Fantasy Tip: Brady had a solid completion percentage, but his yardage and mere one score left fantasy owners wonting for more. The loss of Rob Gronkowski for the season is certainly not good news for Brady and his fantasy owners.

Patriots | Tom Brady feeling better

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 09:03:06 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (knee) told The Kirk and Callahan radio show his injured knee feels better Monday, Nov. 28, than it did a week ago.

Fantasy Tip: Brady has a mediocre fantasy day in Week 12 by his standards and was particularly sluggish in the first half, but he still came in the clutch to lead the Patriots on a go-ahead touchdown drive late in the fourth quarter. There a near 100 percent chance he'll be listed as questionable on the Week 13 injury report, but owners should fully expect him to perform like a QB1 against the Los Angeles Rams next weekend.

Patriots | Tom Brady surpasses milestone

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 22:54:56 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (knee) picked up his 200th career win in the Week 12 game against the New York Jets, and he also surpassed the 60,000-yard mark for his career. He is the fourth quarterback to reach the plateau. He finished with 30 completions on 50 attempts for 286 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions.

Fantasy Tip: Brady was clearly not 100 percent and without Rob Gronkowski for a majority of the game, but he still persevered. He remains a must-start fantasy option through thick and thin. In Week 13 he'll face a Los Angeles Rams pass defense which was trampled in their game in New Orleans.

Patriots | Tom Brady expected to play Week 12

Sat, 26 Nov 2016 09:49:16 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (knee) is expected to play Week 12 against the New York Jets, but he will be a game-time decision and his status will be determined after watching him warm up.

Fantasy Tip: Multiple sources have suggested the Patriots have little to no concern over Brady's status, so this is one rare occasion in which owners probably don't need to make a roster move to secure a backup quarterback. Jimmy Garoppolo would start if Brady misses his first game due to injury since 2007 and should be considered a low-end QB1 if he does. Conversely, Brady will be an elite QB1 with a great matchup if he goes as expected.

Patriots | Tom Brady listed as questionable

Fri, 25 Nov 2016 13:17:41 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (knee) got in a limited practice Friday, Nov. 25, after sitting out back-to-back practices for the first time since 2010. Brady has been listed as questionable for Week 12 against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Tip: It would be a shock if Brady missed a game due to injury for the first time since 2007, but this game's late afternoon start means owners need to at least consider a backup plan. In the likely event Brady plays, he needs to be considered an elite QB1.

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (knee) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 24.

Fantasy Tip: The more Brady misses practice the more his Week 12 status becomes a concern. Of course, a veteran with Brady's experience and injuries can definitely still play even without practice. Assuming he's active, he's a QB1 candidate in any matchup.

Fantasy Tip: Brady did a pretty good job considering the weather was sloppy and he came in with a right quadriceps injury. He has 16 touchdowns and just one interception in six games since returning from suspension. He'll look to keep up the good play in Week 12 at N.Y. Jets.

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (thigh) said he suffered a thigh injury in Week 10, but he is expected to play in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Brady has passed for 782 yards, six touchdowns and no interceptions in two games since returning from a four-game suspension. Needless to say, he is back and worth using in all fantasy formats heading into Week 7 against a Pittsburgh Steelers pass defense susceptible to the big play.

Patriots | Tom Brady to play catch with Wes Welker

Sat, 17 Sep 2016 06:52:34 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady will play catch with former NFL WR Wes Welker, in order to remain in football shape during his four-game suspension. He is prohibited from working out or having contact with current teammates and coaches.

Fantasy Tip: Brady will be eligible to return from his suspension during Week 5's game against the Browns Oct. 9, and will regain the starting job regardless of how well QB Jimmy Garoppolo plays in his absence. The 39-year-old veteran should continue to be viewed as a QB1 when he comes back, although fantasy owners shouldn't be surprised if he displays a little rust in his first appearance versus Cleveland.

Cowboys | Dak Prescott staying as starter?

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 00:25:46 -0700

Prior to the first game of the season, suggestions were made that Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott could unseat QB Tony Romo (back) as the starter if Prescott played well enough. Sources indicate Romo's job could be up for grabs, much the same way New England Patriots QB Tom Brady took it from QB Drew Bledsoe in 2001.

Fantasy Tip: Prescott has to do well enough to unseat Romo first, as he completed 56 percent of his passes and threw no touchdowns or interceptions in a 20-19 loss to the New York Giants. Monitor the situation closely before pushing the panic button. At the least, pick up Prescott if you have Romo.

Patriots | Tom Brady plays entire first half

Thu, 01 Sep 2016 18:04:08 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady played the entire first half of the team's preseason finale Thursday, September 1, against the New York Giants. Brady completed 16-of-26 passes for 166 yards, to go along with one touchdown and one interception. He also registered two rushes for nine yards.

Fantasy Tip: While it might seem a little peculiar that the Patriots would allow their face of the franchise to play all 39 first-half snaps in a meaningless preseason contest, it should also be noted that this would essentially be his final game action until Week 5, when he is eligible to return from his suspension. Although Brady posted an unspectacular stat line, this probably has zero bearing on how he'll look when he's ready to step back under center following his four-game absence to begin the campaign.

Patriots | Tom Brady to start Thursday

Thu, 01 Sep 2016 10:59:54 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady will be the starting quarterback for the final preseason game Thursday, Sept. 1. It is not known how much he will play during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Brady will miss the first four games of the regular season, so the team is giving him a few more snaps before he sits out for a month. Brady will be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback when he returns and should be a middle-round option in all leagues.
