Fantasy Tip: Brady has only suffered one serious injury during his 17 years in the NFL. His production has yet to take a big hit, too. He'll be 40 next season, but he's coming off a year in which he threw 28 touchdowns and just two interceptions in 12 games. He's a perennial QB1 candidate.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd was sentenced to 24 days in jail and 96 days of home detention earlier this offseason as a result of his in-season extreme DUI, so the combination of that punishment and the Patriots' trade of Cooks doesn't leave much room for him. It looks like Floyd could be waiting until training camp before he finds a home, if even then.

Free-agent CB Darrelle Revis (Jets) appears to be likely to be signed by the New England Patriots, according to sources. Those sources, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, believe if Revis were to play for anyone in 2017 it would be the Patriots.

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo may end up sticking with the team for 2017 and beyond, as there is a "persistent belief within league circles" that they truly want to keep him. The thinking is that QB Tom Brady's "magic number" is three more years or perhaps fewer if he wins one more Super Bowl, and that head coach Bill Belichick has decided after one year of working with him that he doesn't believe QB Jacoby Brissett will become a "true franchise quarterback."
Fantasy Tip: For owners looking to ride Garoppolo in the upcoming campaign while he begins his journey on another club, it's starting to look like that may never come to fruition. Obviously, if he becomes a starter somewhere else, he'll be someone worth watching, but at this point in time it looks like he'll hold no fantasy value while remaining behind Brady in New England.

Free-agent LB Dont'a Hightower (Patriots) re-signed with the New England Patriots Wednesday, March 15, on a four-year deal worth $43.5 million, according to Hightower's agent, SportsTrust Advisors. He will receive $19 million in guaranteed money.

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead's one-year deal is worth $3.15 million. He receives a $1.1 million signing bonus, a $1.8 million salary and can earn $250,000 in per-game roster bonuses.
Fantasy Tip: Burkhead enters a crowded backfield with Dion Lewis and James White, and all three guys do a lot of similar things. Burkhead will be clearly behind those two, but he could be utilized in certain matchups. He's a late-round flier in fantasy.
