Patriots | Tom Brady settlement talks continue

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 08:59:25 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady's legal team is expected to continue settlement negotiations Tuesday, July 28, according to sources. If the suspension is upheld, Brady is expected to go to federal court and seek an injunction that will allow him to play while his case works its way through the courts.

Fantasy Tip: It's possible Brady doesn't have to serve a potential suspension until the 2016 season. In the best-case scenario, he's in the mix just after the elite tier of fantasy quarterbacks. If his suspension is upheld, he dwarfs to the low-end QB1 range.

Patriots | Tom Brady suspension to be upheld?

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 07:11:05 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady is expected to have his four-game suspension upheld, a source told ESPN's Stephen A. Smith. Smith said on "ESPN First Take" Tuesday, July 28, that a source told him "within the last hour," that unless something changed at the last minute, Brady's suspension would be upheld. Smith said an announcement is expected within the next 24 to 48 hours.

Fantasy Tip: Brady's fantasy value takes a big hit if he's unable to perform for your fantasy team until after the Week 5 bye. He's a low-end QB1 pegged for the middle rounds if he's forced to miss four games.

Patriots | Brandon LaFell added to PUP list

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 14:18:32 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandon LaFell (foot) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Monday, July 27.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell was able to shed his walking boot earlier this month, so hopefully he'll be healthy enough to practice with the team soon after training camp begins. LaFell still has more than a month to fully recover. Assuming he does so, he should be drafted as a high-end WR3.

Patriots | Tom Brady's case may be settled

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 10:58:15 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady's appeal of his four-game suspension still has not been announced, and the NFL is now open to talking with the NFL Players Association about a possible settlement in the case, according to sources. Brady is not expected to accept any suspension in a settlement with the NFL but is willing to accept a fine.

Fantasy Tip: This situation could be coming to end soon, so owners should continue to monitor the situation to see if Brady will be sitting out any games. Brady should be a No. 1 quarterback in all leagues this season if he is not suspended but his value will suffer if he is suspended, but he would still be a No. 1 option.

Patriots | Scott Chandler impressed

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 07:20:51 -0700

New England Patriots TE Scott Chandler was one of the stars of the offseason workout program by dominating in the red zone alongside TE Rob Gronkowski.

Fantasy Tip: Chandler averaged 50-576-5 lines the last two years, and he has significant upside in the red zone in this offense. Chandler is a name that might be forgotten on draft day and could be a nice find as a midrange TE2.

Patriots | No Tom Brady decision Friday

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 06:24:36 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady is unlikely to have a ruling on his appeal announced Friday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Brady is a low-end QB1 with his four-game suspension looming, but if games are knocked off, he'll creep back to the middle of the position.

Patriots | Union offered league deal for Tom Brady

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 08:31:25 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady was the subject of a settlement offer from the NFL Players Association to the league last week, but the offer was met with silence by the NFL, according to a source. It is believed Brady is holding firm on his refusal to accept any suspension, though he would consider accepting a fine. If the NFL upholds any part of his four-game suspension, he is expected to go to federal court to fight the decision.

Fantasy Tip: Brady is a low-end QB1, but if his suspension is reduced, he could creep back into the middle of the pack of starting fantasy QBs.

Patriots | NE RBs in close battle

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 16:01:41 -0700

New England Patriots RBs James White, Travaris Cadet and Dion Lewis aren't far apart in the battle to take over the pass-catching role vacated by New York Giants RB Shane Vereen, according to Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com.

Fantasy Tip: This position battle should begin to have a clearer picture once training camp commences. Cadet has more experience, but White and Lewis have the talent to win the position as well. Stay tuned to this situation as training camp progresses.

Patriots | No timetable for Tom Brady's appeal

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 13:16:29 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady's appeal on his four-game suspension does not have a specified timeline, according to commissioner Roger Goodell. Goodell said the league is being thorough with the appeal process, adding that a decision will be made as quickly as possible.

Fantasy Tip: Brady should be viewed as a QB2 if the suspension is not rescinded. If it is not upheld, he'll be back in QB1 territory. Brady has thrown for at least 3,900 yards and 25 touchdowns in each of his last seven full seasons. Those numbers would obviously dwindle a little bit if he misses four games, but he should still be considered a QB1 in Weeks 5-17.

Patriots | Reggie Wayne drawing interest from Pats

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 05:26:33 -0700

Free-agent WR Reggie Wayne (Colts) is drawing interest from the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Wayne could be worth a WR5 flyer if he's picked up.

Patriots | Tom Brady ruling coming this week?

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 14:30:58 -0700

Updating previous reports, the camp for New England Patriots QB Tom Brady believes an appeal decision could come this week, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. Brady appealed a four-game suspension ruling for his involvement in deflating footballs last postseason. Litigation is likely to follow if the outcome is not favorable for him.

Fantasy Tip: The possibility exists that Brady could still play in the season opener even if he is ultimately suspended if he and the NFLPA seek an injunction to continue playing while litigation proceeds. He should be viewed as a QB2 if the suspension is upheld but should be considered as a QB1 if the suspension is reduced or eliminated altogether. Keep checking back for updates on Brady's status.
