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.

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.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski probably will sit out the third preseason game but appears to be on track for the start of the regular season. He should be the top tight end selected in all fantasy leagues as long as he is healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Washington is long in the tooth, but he could still latch on somewhere and be worth a late WR5 flyer in PPR leagues.

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.

New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (ankle, knee) appears to be moving well despite remaining on the Physically Unable to Perform list. He did warm up with teammates in practice Monday, Aug. 22, but he was not in full pads.
Fantasy Tip: It's still concerning that Amendola isn't off the PUP list yet. His injury history has been extensive and he should not be viewed as more than a WR5.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots are mysterious when it comes to their players' injuries and injury designations. They'll take it easy with their star tight end leading up to the season. Since it's nothing serious, Gronk can still be drafted as the first tight end in all formats.
