Fantasy Tip: Owners with fantasy drafts taking place before the ruling is released should be assuming Brady's four-game suspension is upheld. Even if Brady is out for the first four games of the season, he should be treated as a fringe top-five quarterback. Obviously, owners would like to have a better idea on Brady's standing before holding their drafts.

Fantasy Tip: Brady was said to have given an "A-plus" performance in court, and rumblings from experts and pundits think there's a decent chance he'll have his suspension reduced. Brady is a low-end QB1 if he misses four weeks and a bye week, but he'll inch back towards the midrange if a game is reduced.

Fantasy Tip: Brady likely will hear about his appeal in the next few weeks, so owners should continue to monitor the situation. Brady should be a starting fantasy quarterback most weeks but the suspension likely would hurt his value.

Fantasy Tip: Chandler probably will miss the rest of offseason workouts but should be ready for the start of training camp. Chandler could line up with Rob Gronkowski at times this season, but owners should monitor the preseason to determine his role. Chandler could be a late-round pick in deeper leagues, but probably will not be drafted in most leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Chandler's fantasy value will be limited as long as Rob Gronkowski stays healthy, but the Patriots will implement some two-tight end sets. Still, don't start Chandler unless Gronkowski misses extended time at some point.
