Fantasy Tip: Welker's fantasy value is somewhat on life support, but in the right situation, he's still worth a WR5 flyer in PPR leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Brady's suspension has been one of the top stories during the offseason and there is a chance that the suspension could be reduced. Brady should be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback against most teams this upcoming season, but his possible suspension could hurt his value.
Fri, 29 May 2015 11:27:33 -0700
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.

Correcting a previous story, the 10-day deadline for New England Patriots QB Tom Brady's appeal is for setting a date, not for the appeal to be heard. The deadline is set for Wednesday, May 27, but it can be delayed if both the NFL and players' union agree to push it back.

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady won't have his suspension appeal heard by Wednesday, May 27, which is the final day of 10-day deadline. The NFL and the players' union can mutually agree to delay the hearing. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is still slated to hear the case.

The New England Patriots are unlikely to sign a veteran quarterback such as Michael Vick or Matt Flynn to serve as QB Jimmy Garoppolo's backup in the event QB Tom Brady is suspended. The only other active quarterback the Patriots have on the roster as of Sunday, May 24, is QB Garrett Gilbert. The Patriots could become interested if either QB Brian Hoyer or QB Ryan Mallett were to become available.

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady will have the appeal of his four-game suspension heard by commissioner Roger Goodell after the NFL rejected a motion by the NFL Players Association to have Goodell remove himself from the appeal, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Goodell is willing to reduce Brady's punishment, so owners should continue to keep an eye on the situation. Brady likely will be a starting fantasy quarterback in most leagues, but owners may want a strong backup in case Brady does miss four games.
Fri, 22 May 2015 12:30:11 -0700
Fantasy Tip: There are a few more months before the start of training camp, so there is still time for the appeal to be heard before the start of the season. Brady has a chance to have his suspension reduced or eliminated, so owners should continue to monitor the situation. Brady should be a starting fantasy quarterback against most teams next season.

Updating previous reports, New England Patriots QB Tom Brady's appeal will not be affected by the team's decision to accept their sanctions. Commissioner Roger Goodell said he wants to hear from Brady directly in regards to the deflation of footballs in the AFC Championship.
Fantasy Tip: Brady could still see a reduction in his current four-game suspension. If the suspension is cut in half, he's still in the QB1 conversation. If the suspension is upheld, his total numbers may not reach QB1 status.
Tue, 19 May 2015 10:39:40 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Brady's suspension could still be reduced, which would put him even more comfortably in the QB1 tier and give him top-five fantasy quarterback consideration, depending on the length of the reduction, if there is a reduction at all.
