New England Patriots QB Tom Brady's legal team will officially file its appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit Monday, May 23, which is the deadline to do so. "The facts here are so drastic and so apparent that the court should rehear it," attorney Ted Olson said.
Fantasy Tip: Brady had his four-game suspension reinstated in the offseason, but he was able to wiggle free the first time. If you're drafting early, he's still worth taking as an upper-middle quarterback. You'll just have to burn a higher pick than normal on a backup in the low-end QB1 range.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots already have a pretty crowded backfield, so they may not be looking to add even more depth right now, even if it is Foster. If New England's backfield stays as is, Dion Lewis is an RB2 candidate in PPR leagues and LeGarrette Blount is an RB3 option in standard formats.

Fantasy Tip: Foster is still recovering from his Achilles' tendon injury, so he is not ready to sign with a team at this point. Foster likely would be part of a committee if he signed with the Patriots, which would hurt is value. Foster probably would be a middle- to late-round option in fantasy leagues but would not be a weekly starting option. Foster could be a No. 3 running back or flex option if he joins a favorable situation.

New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee, ankle) is recovering from a pair of offseason surgeries that could prevent him from being ready for the start of the 2016 season. Amendola had surgery on a troublesome left knee and another surgery to remove a bone spur in his ankle, according to a source. Both surgeries happened early this offseason. It's still too early to know when Amendola will be fully recovered, but his knee will demand a longer recovery schedule than his ankle.
Fantasy Tip: Amendola has had a propensity for injuries during his career. He's only played two full seasons in his seven-year career, and hasn't scored more than three touchdowns in any season either. Don't think of him as more than a low-end WR4, with extra value in PPR formats.

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) recently underwent foot surgery but is still on pace to participate in training camp, according to sources. The surgery was a cleanup procedure for which Edelman was seen wearing a boot.
Fantasy Tip: It doesn't sound like there's anything to worry too much about here, unless Edelman aggravates the issue during offseason work. As long as he's healthy heading into the season, Edelman should be drafted as a WR1 in PPR leagues, even with Tom Brady expected to be suspended for the first four games.
