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.

Patriots | Tom Brady slices right thumb

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 17:49:24 -0700

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (thumb) sliced his right thumb with a pair of scissors prior to the club's preseason game Thursday, August 18, against the Chicago Bears. Brady was trying to pry something from the bottom of his cleat prior to taking the field and sustained the cut. It's not known whether or not he needed stitches but he was seen leaving the stadium in regular clothes.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like a minor injury, though the extent of the cut is still not yet known. It could be a little concerning, however, considering that it happened on his throwing hand. Regardless, Brady isn't slated to begin his season until Week 5, so he'll have plenty of time to heal from this uncharacteristic gaffe. It would be interesting to see if this would affect his Week 1 availability if he wasn't suspended for the first quarter of the year.

Patriots | Tom Brady not on the field

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 16:52:58 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady has not been spotted on the field prior to the team's preseason game Thursday, August 18, against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: There were reports that Brady might get some work in tonight's contest, but now it appears that won't be the case. Either way, this isn't injury-related. With Brady apparently out for the night, this should result in more work for Jimmy Garoppolo.

Patriots | Tom Brady to play Thursday

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 11:47:23 -0700

Correcting a previous report, New England Patriots QB Tom Brady will play in the preseason game against the Chicago Bears Thursday, Aug. 18, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Brady probably will only receive a series or two during the game but probably will see more playing time in the third preseason game. Brady should be a No. 1 quarterback in most leagues, but owners will need a replacement for the first four weeks of the season.

Patriots | Tom Brady may not play Thursday

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 10:08:41 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady may not play in the preseason game against the Chicago Bears Thursday, Aug. 18, and would only see limited snaps if he does play.

Fantasy Tip: Brady does not need many snaps during the preseason since he knows the offense, and the team needs to prepare Jimmy Garoppolo for the first four games of the season. Brady should still be considered a No. 1 quarterback in all leagues, but owners will need a strong backup to use in the first four weeks.

Patriots | Jimmy Garoppolo fairly accurate

Thu, 11 Aug 2016 07:50:23 -0700

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo is 158-for-231 (68.3%) with six interceptions in team drills through 12 practices. QB Tom Brady is 155-for-213 (72.7%) with four interceptions.

Fantasy Tip: Garoppolo is a QB2 in fantasy that you could consider in a good matchup the first four weeks if your starter goes down. Brady is at the bottom of the midrange of starting quarterbacks because he's missing four games. He still has more upside than most, though.

Patriots | Tom Brady out for Thursday's game

Wed, 10 Aug 2016 21:47:24 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady will sit out the preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 11, against the New Orleans Saints, according to a source. QB Jimmy Garoppolo will get the start.

Fantasy Tip: Makes sense. Brady is out for the first four games due to suspension, so Garoppolo will get a chance to work with the first-team offense in game situations to get ready for the first four games of the regular season. Brady remains a QB1 in all fantasy leagues for when he returns in Week 5.

Patriots | Tom Brady perfect during scrimmage

Fri, 05 Aug 2016 15:54:54 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed all 25 of his pass attempts during an intrasquad scrimmage Friday, Aug. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Brady is still receiving plenty of work during training camp even though he will be missing the first four games of the 2016 season. Brady should still be considered a mid-range No. 1 quarterback because he will have plenty of weapons to work with when he returns.

Patriots | Tom Brady, Jimmy Garoppolo share snaps

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 11:04:13 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady received the first snaps during quarterback drills and seven-on-seven drills during practice Thursday, July 28, while QB Jimmy Garoppolo received the first snaps during 11-on-11 drills. Garoppolo went 11-for-14 during the team drills, while Brady went 8-for-14.

Fantasy Tip: Both Brady and Garoppolo will receive work during training camp even though Brady likely will be suspended for the first four games of the season. Brady should still be considered a solid No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues despite the suspension. Garoppolo can be a matchup play in some leagues but probably should be seen as a No. 2 quarterback.
