Patriots | Jimmy Garoppolo taking first-team reps

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 13:57:24 -0700

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo took some first-team reps at training camp Saturday, Aug. 1. QB Tom Brady worked with the starters during every period of practice, but Garoppolo took a "few snaps," according to James Palmer of NFL Media.

Fantasy Tip: Garoppolo had time with all the top-tier receivers, including some goal-line work. With Brady's status for the first four weeks of the season up in the air, Garoppolo could very well be a FantasyScore option to begin the season.

Patriots | Tom Brady resolution close?

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 11:25:45 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, New England Patriots QB Tom Brady's suspension resolution case could be finalized before the start of the 2015 regular season. Documents show the NFL and NFL Players Association have agreed this would be in the best interest of both parties. However, any ruling would be subject to appeal.

Patriots | Tom Brady works with starters

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 11:12:23 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady received all of the repetitions with the first-team offense during practice Thursday, July 30, and completed 27 of his 30 passes during team drills.

Fantasy Tip: Brady is currently suspended for the first four games of the regular season, but he is looking to have the suspension eliminated. Brady should be a starting quarterback in fantasy leagues this season, but owners will want a strong backup in case Brady does have to miss the first four games.

Patriots | Tom Brady's case moved to New York

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 07:08:01 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, New England Patriots QB Tom Brady's lawsuit was transferred to Manhattan, N.Y., by a Minnesota judge Friday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: The Minnesota judge had a history of siding with the players, but that maneuver appears to have been foiled. Brady is a midrange QB1 if he receives an injunction that delays his suspension and a low-end QB1 if it stands.

Patriots | Tom Brady files suit against NFL

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 06:48:14 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady has filed a lawsuit against the NFL asking a Minnesota federal court for penalties against Brady to be vacated. The suit alleges that Brady's punishment was not fair and consistent. It also claims that the appeal hearing "defied any concept of fundamental fairness" and that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was partial in his decision to uphold the suspension.

Fantasy Tip: Brady can seek an injunction that will delay his suspension and allow him to play while the case is ongoing. In this best-case scenario, Brady is atop the midrange QB1 options.

Patriots | Tom Brady defends broken phone

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 06:19:23 -0700

Updating previous reports, New England Patriots QB Tom Brady posted on Facebook that he replaced his broken phone with a new one after his attorneys told the NFL "my actual phone device" would not be investigated. His representatives turned over requested cell phone records and emails, Brady said, and tried to obtain text messages from his old phone.

Fantasy Tip: Brady could draw this out in court and not miss a game this season. If that occurs, he'd fall right under the elite tier of fantasy quarterbacks. However, missing our games keeps him out until Week 6 and makes him a weak No. 1.

Patriots | Tom Brady offers lesser penalty

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 22:42:52 -0700

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots QB Tom Brady could have had his suspended reduced based on a series of conditions. According to a source with knowledge of the situation, the NFL was willing to drop the suspension by "at least 50 percent" if Brady admitted to having knowledge of what the team's staff was doing to footballs, he admitted to failing to cooperate with the Ted Wells investigation and he apologized.

Fantasy Tip: Brady could have had his suspension reduced two or three games, but it appears this case will be headed before a federal judge.

Patriots | NE still wins without Tom Brady

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 14:07:49 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady is facing a four-game suspension, but the Patriots have done fairly well without him. In games Brady has missed since he became a starter in 2001, New England has gone 10-5. They have averaged about two fewer points per game and about 27 fewer passing yards per game. However, their rushing yards have increased from 115.7 yards per game to 143.5 yards per game. Their total yards per game have actually increased as well from 366.8 yards per game to 367.3 yards per game.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard to imagine the Patriots posting 367.3 total yards per game with Jimmy Garoppolo at the helm. The Patriots will be without Brady and starting RB LeGarrette Blount for Week 1, so they could struggle right off the bat. If Brady can produce at his usual rate upon his return, he could still turn into a low-end QB1, but he should be regarded as a QB2 with the suspension being upheld.

Patriots | Tom Brady taking appeal to court

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 13:43:54 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady has given permission to the NFL Players Association to appeal his case in federal court, according to a source. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell upheld Brady's four-game suspension for his involvement in deflating footballs in last year's postseason.

Fantasy Tip: What looked like the end could be a new beginning, as this case could take a while to reach a new or similar verdict in court. The bottom line is that Brady is currently facing a four-game suspension and his fantasy value is taking a good hit with it. He should now be viewed as a QB2.

Patriots | Tom Brady's suspension upheld

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 11:43:44 -0700

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots QB Tom Brady's four-game suspension has been upheld by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell Tuesday, July 28.

Fantasy Tip: This case could very well be heading to court now, as La Canfora indicated. If Brady does end up serving his four-game suspension this season, he could find himself in QB2 territory at season's end. Jimmy Garoppolo has shown some success in the NFL, but he's obviously no Tom Brady. Those who draft Brady, which shouldn't be until the middle rounds if he's out four games, might want to take Garoppolo in a later round.

Patriots | Tom Brady settlement talks continue

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 08:59:25 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady's legal team is expected to continue settlement negotiations Tuesday, July 28, according to sources. If the suspension is upheld, Brady is expected to go to federal court and seek an injunction that will allow him to play while his case works its way through the courts.

Fantasy Tip: It's possible Brady doesn't have to serve a potential suspension until the 2016 season. In the best-case scenario, he's in the mix just after the elite tier of fantasy quarterbacks. If his suspension is upheld, he dwarfs to the low-end QB1 range.

Patriots | Tom Brady suspension to be upheld?

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 07:11:05 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady is expected to have his four-game suspension upheld, a source told ESPN's Stephen A. Smith. Smith said on "ESPN First Take" Tuesday, July 28, that a source told him "within the last hour," that unless something changed at the last minute, Brady's suspension would be upheld. Smith said an announcement is expected within the next 24 to 48 hours.

Fantasy Tip: Brady's fantasy value takes a big hit if he's unable to perform for your fantasy team until after the Week 5 bye. He's a low-end QB1 pegged for the middle rounds if he's forced to miss four games.

Patriots | Tom Brady's case may be settled

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 10:58:15 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady's appeal of his four-game suspension still has not been announced, and the NFL is now open to talking with the NFL Players Association about a possible settlement in the case, according to sources. Brady is not expected to accept any suspension in a settlement with the NFL but is willing to accept a fine.

Fantasy Tip: This situation could be coming to end soon, so owners should continue to monitor the situation to see if Brady will be sitting out any games. Brady should be a No. 1 quarterback in all leagues this season if he is not suspended but his value will suffer if he is suspended, but he would still be a No. 1 option.

Patriots | No Tom Brady decision Friday

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 06:24:36 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady is unlikely to have a ruling on his appeal announced Friday, July 24.

Patriots | Union offered league deal for Tom Brady

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 08:31:25 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady was the subject of a settlement offer from the NFL Players Association to the league last week, but the offer was met with silence by the NFL, according to a source. It is believed Brady is holding firm on his refusal to accept any suspension, though he would consider accepting a fine. If the NFL upholds any part of his four-game suspension, he is expected to go to federal court to fight the decision.

Fantasy Tip: Brady is a low-end QB1, but if his suspension is reduced, he could creep back into the middle of the pack of starting fantasy QBs.

Patriots | No timetable for Tom Brady's appeal

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 13:16:29 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady's appeal on his four-game suspension does not have a specified timeline, according to commissioner Roger Goodell. Goodell said the league is being thorough with the appeal process, adding that a decision will be made as quickly as possible.

Fantasy Tip: Brady should be viewed as a QB2 if the suspension is not rescinded. If it is not upheld, he'll be back in QB1 territory. Brady has thrown for at least 3,900 yards and 25 touchdowns in each of his last seven full seasons. Those numbers would obviously dwindle a little bit if he misses four games, but he should still be considered a QB1 in Weeks 5-17.

Patriots | Tom Brady ruling coming this week?

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 14:30:58 -0700

Updating previous reports, the camp for New England Patriots QB Tom Brady believes an appeal decision could come this week, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. Brady appealed a four-game suspension ruling for his involvement in deflating footballs last postseason. Litigation is likely to follow if the outcome is not favorable for him.

Fantasy Tip: The possibility exists that Brady could still play in the season opener even if he is ultimately suspended if he and the NFLPA seek an injunction to continue playing while litigation proceeds. He should be viewed as a QB2 if the suspension is upheld but should be considered as a QB1 if the suspension is reduced or eliminated altogether. Keep checking back for updates on Brady's status.

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 06:09:18 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady is unlikely to have a decision on the appeal of his four-game suspension until mid-to-late July.

Fantasy Tip: Brady was said to have given an "A-plus" performance in court, and rumblings from experts and pundits think there's a decent chance he'll have his suspension reduced. Brady is a low-end QB1 if he misses four weeks and a bye week, but he'll inch back towards the midrange if a game is reduced.

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 10:39:29 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, New England Patriots QB Tom Brady wants to be completely exonerated and have his entire suspension vacated during his appeal hearing. Sources told ESPN's Sal Paolantonio that Brady will turn to legal recourse in federal court against NFL commissioner Roger Goodell if the suspension isn't retracted.

Fantasy Tip: A lawsuit in federal court could make this one of the ugliest NFL situations in recent memory. Brady is a midrange QB1 if his suspension is lifted and a luxury backup selection should it be upheld.

Fri, 29 May 2015 11:27:33 -0700

New England Patriots QBs Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo shared snaps during organized team activities Friday, May 29, according to NFL Media's Randy Moss.

Fantasy Tip: Brady is facing a four-game suspension, so it is understandable that Garoppolo would receive some work with the starting offense. Owners should continue to monitor Brady's appeal to see if his suspension is reduced or eliminated. Brady should still be seen as a No. 1 quarterback in most leagues in 2015, and Garoppolo could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback against certain matchups.

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady will continue to appeal his four-game suspension, despite owner Robert Kraft saying the team will not appeal the discipline levied against them.

Patriots | Jimmy Garoppolo ready to succeed?

Sun, 17 May 2015 17:41:14 -0700

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo's quick decision making and accuracy fit well with New England's playbook that includes quick-rhythm passes as part of the foundation, and Bucky Brooks of NFL.com believes the Patriots will continue to use the diverse aerial attack that is used when QB Tom Brady is under center when Garoppolo starts.

Fantasy Tip: Garoppolo will have some big shoes to fill, but the Patriots will no doubt put him in the best position to succeed. He could make a nice sleeper at FantasyScore while Brady is serving his suspension, and if you draft Brady in a seasonal league, Garoppolo is worth targeting as a handcuff.

Patriots | Tom Brady suspended

Mon, 11 May 2015 14:43:37 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady has been suspended four games for his involvement in the deflated-football incident in the AFC Championship. In addition, the Patriots will lose their 2016 first-round pick, a 2017 fourth-round pick and will be fined $1 million, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Brady could still very well appeal, but his fantasy value will take a good hit if this decision stands. If Brady appeals and the suspension is reduced, say to two games, he'll still be in the QB1 conversation. If he does miss four games, he'll only play in Weeks 6 through 17, as the Patriots have a Week 5 bye this year. Regardless of the outcome of his suspension if he appeals, you'll need to draft a backup quarterback with plenty of upside and a favorable schedule early in the year if you roster Brady in 2016.

Patriots | Tom Brady punishment possible Friday

Fri, 08 May 2015 09:43:49 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady could be subject to a ruling on potential punishment for the deflated footballs situation as early as Friday, May 8.

Fantasy Tip: There has been speculation that Brady could be suspended four to six games for the situation. The precedent has been set with Ben Roethlisberger that any suspension Brady could receive would have the ability to be reduced with good behavior. Brady really struggled early last season before turning it on late. If he missed no time, he'd be the middle of the pack of the QB1's. If he misses 2-4 games, throw in the team's Week 4 bye you'll need a QB for as well, and you're talking about the low-end QB1 range.

Fantasy Tip: There was never any real doubt that Brady would play, and he is a solid option in FantasyScore for the Super Bowl, where he will cost $7,777 (15.55% of cap).
