New England Patriots QB Tom Brady and the offense struggled mightily in a 41-14 thrashing by the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 4 Monday, Sept. 29, and head coach Bill Belichick hasn't been able to settle on a starting group on the offensive line. C Bryan Stork, a rookie, debuted as the starting center, and OG Cameron Fleming debuted as the starting guard. The team benched both starting tackles at various points during the game. Brady hasn't had much time to throw all year, and he was off target Monday.
Fantasy Tip: Until New England's offensive line can gain some consistency, Brady may continue to struggle to put up numbers in this weak offense. Rob Gronkowski also continues to look much less than 100 percent healthy. Until we see improvements, it's probably safer to stay away from Brady at FantasyScore.

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed 14 of his 23 pass attempts for 159 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the Week 4 loss against the Kansas City Chiefs Monday, Sept. 29. One of the interceptions was returned for a touchdown.
Fantasy Tip: It was a very un-Brady-like performance. His departure from the game was due to the lopsided nature of the score, as it was 41-7 when he was lifted for rookie Jimmy Garoppolo.

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady didn't try to get deeper into his progressions in Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders until late in the second half. There were only two times when Brady looked past his first read and wasn't under serious pressure from the Raiders' pass rush. On both of those instances, Brady completed a pass to WR Julian Edelman. Brady has been getting hit hard or pressured when looking through his progressions deeper down the field, which is why Edelman and TE Rob Gronkowski are being targeted more - they are his best and most consistent receivers.
Fantasy Tip: Are Brady's glory days behind him? That's probably the case, but he can still be productive in the right matchups. However, beyond Edelman and Gronkowski, his other receiving options will be weak flex plays until the offensive line can give Brady more time to look through all of his downfield options.

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (calf) could have a legit calf injury because his touch and velocity has been off in the early part of the season. Brady also rushed a few throws in Week 2 after taking some hits the previous week. Brady appears to have a lack of trust with his offensive line, in the opinion of beat writer Chad Finn.
Fantasy Tip: Brady started slowly last season but eventually picked it up. He could very well do the same this season, or this could be a typical regression for a 37-year-old quarterback. Either way, he's a very shaky QB1 right now.
Mon, 22 Sep 2014 07:13:45 -0700
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady has completed 84.6 percent of his passes to WR Julian Edelman. He has completed just 51.1 percent of his passes to other players.
Fantasy Tip: Brady has yet to have a banner fantasy day thus far, but Edelman is playing like a WR1 in PPR leagues. Brady is a weak QB1 right now due to the lack of continuity on offense and should only be played in good matchups right now.
Tue, 16 Sep 2014 07:43:45 -0700
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady is 3-for-20 on passing attempts of 15 yards or more in the first two weeks.
Fantasy Tip: Brady is priced at $8,200 (16.4% of your cap) on FantasyScore this week. He has a good matchup against the Oakland Raiders, but there are better options at lower prices than Brady until he gets in-sync with his receivers.
Wed, 10 Sep 2014 22:03:37 -0700
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (calf) was not listed on the team's first injury report for Week 2 Wednesday, Sept. 10. He was on the injury report last week with a calf ailment.
Fantasy Tip: Brady was able to play in Week 1, and the injury appears to be a non-issue. FantasyScore owners should feel confident starting him in Week 2 against the Minnesota Vikings.
Wed, 10 Sep 2014 09:10:43 -0700
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (calf) is participating in practice Wednesday, Sept. 10.
Fantasy Tip: Brady was able to play last week with the injury and should be on the field again for Week 2. Brady had a solid game Week 1 but did not put up spectacular numbers. Brady costs $7,800 at FantasyScore, which seems to be a fair value for him.
Tue, 09 Sep 2014 14:16:46 -0700
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady struggled under pressure against the Miami Dolphins Sunday, Sept. 7. Brady was pressured on 16 dropbacks, according to ESPN, and went 0-for-6 with four sacks while under pressure in the second half.
Fantasy Tip: Every quarterback performs worse under pressure, but Brady really showed that against the Dolphins. The Patriots offensive line looked very shaky and could diminish Brady's fantasy value as the season progresses. That being said, he still didn't throw an interception and has most of his offense intact. He could be a nice play against the Minnesota Vikings for $7,800 on FantasyScore.
Mon, 08 Sep 2014 10:17:40 -0700
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady passed Warren Moon for No. 6 on the all-time NFL passing list Sunday, Sept. 27. Brady was 29-for-56 for 249 yards and a touchdown in the season-opening loss to the Miami Dolphins.
Fantasy Tip: Brady wasn't spectacular against an improved Dolphins squad. We warned you that it would be tough for Brady to deliver profit on his FantasyScore price in Week 1.
Fri, 05 Sep 2014 14:22:40 -0700
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (calf) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 5, and is questionable for the team's Week 1 game.
Fantasy Tip: While there is no doubt Brady will play in this game, his FantasyScore price of $7,500 (155 of cap) makes him a risky play, especially if he is not at full strength.
Fri, 05 Sep 2014 09:31:47 -0700
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (calf) returned to practice Friday, Sept. 5, a day after sitting out with a calf injury. Brady said Thursday, Sept. 4, that he's ready for the season opener against the Miami Dolphins this weekend despite the injury.
Fantasy Tip: You should think twice before spending $7,500 (15% of your cap) on Brady against the Dolphins in Week 1, especially since one of his favorite targets, Rob Gronkowski (knee) will likely be limited.
Thu, 04 Sep 2014 18:11:44 -0700
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (calf) will play against the Miami Dolphins Sunday, Sept. 7, according to a source. The injury popped up in the last 24 hours and will require some management.
Fantasy Tip: Brady is going to be on the field in Week 1, but whether or not he is 100 percent is another story. He will take up 15% of your cap ($7,500) at FantasyScore, and investing that much in a quarterback that might not be at full strength is risky.
Thu, 04 Sep 2014 13:53:01 -0700
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (calf) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 4, due to a calf injury.
Fantasy Tip: Brady costs $7,500 on FantasyScore this week against the Miami Dolphins. While he probably will play, you may want to shop more for a better value at the position, considering Brady might be not be 100 percent.
Thu, 04 Sep 2014 10:26:08 -0700
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (undisclosed) is not participating in practice Thursday, Sept. 4.

Thu, 07 Aug 2014 05:43:54 -0700
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady will not play in the first preseason game, and QB Ryan Mallett will start. Mallett has had his best camp as a pro, completing 13 of 24 passes in 11-on-11 practices and 16 of 21 in 7-on-7 practices against the Washington Redskins.
Fantasy Tip: Brady is a solid QB1 that got off to a slow start last year but picked it up as the season progressed.
Thu, 24 Jul 2014 18:18:17 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady could play at a high level into his 40s, according to Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker. "If anybody can do it, it's Tom," Welker said. "I mean, he puts the time in, not only physically and mentally and everything else, but the way he eats, the way he sleeps, the way he does everything. He does it so he can play for a very long time. I think what he did in his 20s and 30s are going to carry on into his 40s."
Fri, 20 Jun 2014 12:17:58 -0700
New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola and QB Tom Brady have developed a nice rapport this offseason, according to a source. WR Kenbrell Thompkins also impressed during drills, beating new CB Brandon Browner frequently.
Fantasy Tip: Now the trick will be for Amendola to develop a rapport with good health, as he has missed 11 games the past two seasons. If Amendola can stay healthy and further his connection with Brady, he could be an under-the-radar sleeper in 2014.
Mon, 26 May 2014 14:07:25 -0700
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady said he had a good idea that the team would select a quarterback during the 2014 NFL Draft. "I had a pretty good idea we'd take a quarterback," Brady said. "[Head coach Bill Belichick] doesn't care who the quarterback is here. He's always going to play the guy who he thinks gives him the best chance to win. It's not my role to choose players here, thankfully. And this is not the first time they've taken another quarterback either. There's no entitlement in the NFL. I don't expect to be given anything. I just hope I'm the one most entitled to play that position for a long time here."

It was the same thing I'd been seeing on film. I knew exactly what I was going to get. I knew what type of block he'd give me. I had to make the play. I did what I was supposed to do," Knighton said.
