Patriots | Tom Brady shaky vs. Miami

Sat, 13 Dec 2014 23:19:30 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady has not been at his best versus the Miami Dolphins in recent years. Since a monster 2011 Week 1 game, in which he threw for 517 yards and four touchdowns, Brady has thrown more than one touchdown pass just twice in six outings and has not topped 300 yards in four of those games.

Fantasy Tip: Brady primarily struggles in Miami, but last year the managed just 116 yards and a single touchdown pass at Gillette Stadium versus the Dolphins. He is a low-end QB1 in Week 15 and a bit steep at $8,400 (16.8%) on FantasyScore.

Patriots | Tom Brady practices in full

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 17:04:16 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) was able to take part in practice as a full participant Wednesday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: The San Diego Chargers, Brady's Week 14 opponent, actually ranks seventh in the NFL against the pass by allowing just 221.6 yards per game. While it appears to be an unfavorable matchup, San Diego has still allowed 20 passing touchdowns in 12 games while allowing 36 pass plays of 20 or more yards and only sacking the opposing quarterback 18 times. Brady has a favorable matchup and is a good play in FantasyScore at $8,400 (or 16.8 percent of the cap).

Patriots | Tom Brady passes John Elway

Sun, 02 Nov 2014 19:04:34 -0800

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady threw for 333 yards in Week 9 against the Denver Broncos to top nemesis QB Peyton Manning.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees is fourth with 53,605 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Brady got off to an un-Brady-like start earlier this season, and everyone wanted to write him off. However, since the game against the Cincinnati Bengals earlier, Brady has been one of the top fantasy options around.

Patriots | Tom Brady will play in Week 9

Fri, 31 Oct 2014 15:18:29 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 31, and is probable for Week 9 against the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: This game could easily be a shootout, making Brady's FantasyScore price of $8,100 (16.2% of cap) likely worth it. It's also worth noting that he has put up big numbers ever since Rob Gronkowski has returned to full health and he has developed some chemistry with deep threat Brandon LaFell.

Patriots | Tom Brady stays red hot

Sun, 26 Oct 2014 14:12:47 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed 30 of his 35 pass attempts for 354 yards and five touchdowns in Week 8 against the Chicago Bears. After a slow start to the season, Brady has thrown for 1,268 yards, 14 touchdowns and no interceptions over the past four games. Sunday marked the sixth time in his career he threw five or more touchdowns in a single game. His 148.4 passer rating was the eighth best of his career.

Fantasy Tip: Reports of Brady's demise were greatly exaggerated. He has been one of the top fantasy quarterbacks over the past month, and a bargain at FantasyScore in Week 8 at $7,800 (or 15.6 percent of the cap).

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 05:46:30 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady has thrown just two interceptions this year, and both came in the Week 4 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Brady ($7,800; 15.6% of your cap) has averaged 305 passing yards and three touchdowns per game over the last three weeks. Oddly enough, this surge has come when he was less than 100% health. Brady is a solid buy as a mid-tier QB1 this week against the Chicago Bears on FantasyScore.

Patriots | Tom Brady has legit injury

Tue, 14 Oct 2014 07:11:51 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) played Sunday, Oct. 13, through a significant injury, according to two sources. Brady rolled his ankle on the foot of one of his offensive linemen Friday, Oct. 10. Brady required a lot of therapy to be ready to play in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Brady ($7,800; 15.6% of your cap) has a solid matchup against the New York Jets in Week 7 on FantasyScore. He had arguably his best game of the season this past weekend and has stepped it up two weeks in a row. While the team isn't likely to divulge much, monitor his practice report this week. He should be a decent, mid-rate QB1 for the price.

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) is expected to play in Week 6 Sunday, Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Brady ($7,400; 14.8% of your cap) came alive last week, but we'd like to see more before we have a solid comfort level with him on FantasyScore. If you're looking for a low-end QB1 price, he's in the discussion.

Sat, 11 Oct 2014 11:25:13 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) traveled to Buffalo with the team and was not wearing a walking boot Saturday, Oct. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Brady should still be able to play Sunday, Oct. 12, against the Buffalo Bills, but you can never be too careful with a situation like this. He'll cost you $7,400 on FantasyScore this week.

Patriots | Tom Brady tries to extend TD streak

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 21:48:45 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (calf) will meet the Buffalo Bills in Week 6, assuming he is active. Officially, he is questionable for the game. He has thrown at least one touchdown pass in 21 straight starts against the Bills, and he has two or more touchdown passes in seven of the past eight against Buffalo, and 18 of the previous 21 meetings.

Fantasy Tip: If Brady plays he will be a fabulous FantasyScore option at just $7400 (or 14.8 percent of the salary cap). He has fared well against Buffalo over the years, and with Buffalo ranked 20th against the pass, Brady should have another solid performance.

Patriots | Tom Brady questionable

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 14:04:58 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 10, and he's questionable for Week 6 against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Brady popped up on the injury report today after reportedly tweaking his ankle last Sunday night. We'd be pretty shocked not to see Brady play against the Bills, and after his rebound against a tough Cincinnati Bengals D last week, he could easily exploit Buffalo's secondary for a nice fantasy day in Week 6.

Patriots | Tom Brady wants to stay with team

Tue, 07 Oct 2014 13:07:39 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady reiterated Monday, Oct. 6, that he wants to be a New England Patriot for the remainder of his career. "I love the Patriots… there is no place I'd rather be. I play for the greatest owner and, to me, the greatest coach of all time."

Fantasy Tip: Things are certainly sounding a little more comfortable for Brady compared to last week after a bounce-back performance against the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday night. While Brady isn't out of the woods as far as inconsistency, he's still worth starting and will cost $7,400 on FantasyScore this week.

Patriots | No tension between Pats and Tom Brady

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 10:03:59 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady said there isn't any tension between him and the coaching staff this year, and his input into the offensive game plans and pre-snap adjustments haven't been taken away. "I've always had input and there's not one play that's ever been called in the game that I've said, 'Look I don't want to run that play or that's not the way it works,'" Brady said.

Fantasy Tip: Reports likely surfaced about tension after the Patriots' blowout loss to the Kansas City Chiefs last Monday night. However, a quick turnaround produced positive results for New England against a tough Cincinnati Bengals team.

Patriots | Tom Brady scared in the pocket?

Tue, 30 Sep 2014 19:27:29 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady has looked "scared to death" throwing the ball this season, his former teammate, Rodney Harrison, said Tuesday, Sept. 30.

Fantasy Tip: New England's offensive line has been a revolving door this season so it would be tough to blame Brady if he is feeling a little jittery in the pocket. Scared or not, Brady's numbers have been way down, and with the Patriots facing a stout Cincinnati defense in Week 5, he has serious bust potential at FantasyScore where he will take up 14.8% of the cap ($7,400).

Patriots | O-line hurting Patriots

Tue, 30 Sep 2014 09:17:43 -0700

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.

Patriots | Tom Brady lifted early

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 19:27:12 -0700

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.

Patriots | Tom Brady rushed to make throws

Wed, 24 Sep 2014 13:09:00 -0700

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.

Patriots | Tom Brady's calf could be an issue

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 08:48:14 -0700

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.

Patriots | Tom Brady leaning on Julian Edelman

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.

Patriots | Tom Brady struggles with pressure

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.
