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.

Patriots | Tom Brady may play Thursday

Wed, 31 Aug 2016 16:52:07 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady may receive some snaps with the first-team offense during the final preseason game Thursday, Sept. 1, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Brady will miss the first four games of the season but likely would not receive much playing time if he plays Thursday. Brady should still be a solid No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues, but owners will need a solid backup to use while Brady is out.

Patriots | Chris Hogan stands out

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 21:12:47 -0700

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan caught five passes for a game-high 62 yards and scored on a 33-yard pass from QB Tom Brady in a 19-17 preseason win over the Carolina Panthers Friday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Scoop Hogan up as a WR4. Given the injury history of New England's current group of receivers, Hogan could end up being one of Tom Brady's top targets at various time throughout the year.

Patriots | Uneven debut for Tom Brady

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 18:29:16 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady made his preseason debut Friday, Aug. 26, completing three of his nine passes for 76 yards and a touchdown against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Brady's four-game suspension should keep him on the board well into the middle rounds. He should still be a QB1 when he returns, but you have to be prepared to draft another quality quarterback to bridge the gap.

Patriots | Jimmy Garoppolo expected to start Friday

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 14:16:28 -0700

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to be the starting quarterback in the preseason game against the Carolina Panthers Friday, Aug. 26. QB Tom Brady will also receive playing time during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Garoppolo needs to prepare for the start of the regular season and will be able to work with the starting offense for a while Friday. Brady should still be a No. 1 quarterback in all leagues despite his suspension, but owners will need a strong backup quarterback. Garoppolo should be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback that could be used by owners against favorable matchups.

Patriots | Tom Brady returns to practice

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 05:41:54 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady returned to practice Tuesday, Aug. 23, after two days of excused absences for non-injury related reasons.

Fantasy Tip: Brady is suspended for the first four games of the regular season. However, he could do more with 12 games than most could with 16 in fantasy. He's at the bottom of the midrange tier of quarterbacks.

Patriots | Tom Brady's agent talks thumb injury

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 19:20:50 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (thumb) will be "okay in time," according to his agent, Don Yee.

Fantasy Tip: The description is vague, but it would have to be a serious injury for Brady to not be ready when he returns from his four-game suspension. Expect him to put up QB1 numbers when he returns, but don't reach for him at the expense of another player who will provide 16-games of quality production.
