Patriots | Tom Brady's appeal hearing scheduled

Fri, 29 May 2015 14:44:47 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady's appeal hearing is scheduled to happen Tuesday, June 23 and could continue Thursday, June 25, according to a source.

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.

Patriots | NE splitting QB reps at practice

Fri, 29 May 2015 11:27:33 -0700

New England Patriots QBs Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo shared snaps during organized team activities Friday, May 29, according to NFL Media's Randy Moss.

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.

Patriots | NE unlikely to add veteran QB

Sun, 24 May 2015 06:35:16 -0700

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.

Patriots | Commissioner to hear Tom Brady's appeal

Fri, 22 May 2015 13:26:19 -0700

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.

Patriots | No date for Tom Brady's appeal

Fri, 22 May 2015 12:30:11 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady's appeal of his four-game suspension has not been scheduled at this time.

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.

Patriots | Commissioner to hear from Tom Brady

Wed, 20 May 2015 11:41:01 -0700

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.

Patriots | Tom Brady's appeal to continue

Tue, 19 May 2015 10:39:40 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady will continue to appeal his four-game suspension, despite owner Robert Kraft saying the team will not appeal the discipline levied against them.

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.

Patriots | Jimmy Garoppolo ready to succeed?

Sun, 17 May 2015 17:41:14 -0700

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo's quick decision making and accuracy fit well with New England's playbook that includes quick-rhythm passes as part of the foundation, and Bucky Brooks of NFL.com believes the Patriots will continue to use the diverse aerial attack that is used when QB Tom Brady is under center when Garoppolo starts.

Fantasy Tip: Garoppolo will have some big shoes to fill, but the Patriots will no doubt put him in the best position to succeed. He could make a nice sleeper at FantasyScore while Brady is serving his suspension, and if you draft Brady in a seasonal league, Garoppolo is worth targeting as a handcuff.

Patriots | Tom Brady taking part in workouts

Sun, 17 May 2015 06:45:37 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady has not missed any of the workouts this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Brady's fantasy value will be determined by what happens with his four-game suspension. Brady should be a starting quarterback in all leagues this upcoming season, but owners may want a strong backup quarterback in case Brady does miss the first four games of the season.
