Fantasy Tip: Brady's fantasy value rewarded owners that drafted him when he was expected to miss four games as he is now a mid-to-upper QB1.

Updating an earlier report, New England Patriots QB Tom Brady's four-game suspension being lifted Thursday, Sept. 3, has been appealed by the NFL. However, the league isn't expected to file an injunction to keep him off the field.
Fantasy Tip: An appeal on this case could take months, which means Brady's fantasy value isn't affected this season. Brady is a midrange QB1 in fantasy.

Fantasy Tip: Brady will move up into the midrange of the QB1 section just after the first few are selected.

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady doesn't look like he'll reach a settlement with the NFL. The league and the NFL Player's Associated have not had any talks regarding a settlement since Monday, Aug. 31.
Fantasy Tip: It looks like Brady's fate will be decided sometime this week. His fantasy value is on hold until that decision is made. If the suspension is upheld, though, he should be viewed as a QB2.

Fantasy Tip: This situation will obviously have a lot more clarity as the week progresses. If the suspension is upheld, Brady should be viewed as a QB2. If it is reduced or completely rescinded, he'll go back to QB1 territory.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson likely will receive interest from several teams, so he should have some fantasy value this season. Jackson could be a late-round pick in point-per-reception leagues if he joins the Patriots because he could have a solid role in the passing game.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell is in the WR2-WR3 range, but the clock is ticking. He needs to return to practice soon if he's expected to be ready for Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Brady is a low-end QB1 if his suspension is upheld. If it's overturned, he moves into the midrange just after the first few quarterbacks are taken in drafts.

New England Patriots RB Travaris Cadet (hamstring) could be on the outside looking in as he deals with a hamstring injury that has kept him off the field this preseason, according to ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss.
Fantasy Tip: LeGarrette Blount, Jonas Gray, Brandon Bolden, James White and Dion Lewis all seem to be ahead of Cadet. He could be on the brink of being waived/injured soon. Blount is really the only Patriot running back worth drafting at this point, although one of Bolden, White and Lewis could turn into a PPR sleeper.

Fantasy Tip: Of course, Brady didn't play the whole game, but he looked rusty when he was in. He'll have plenty of time to improve and shake off the rust while serving his four-game suspension. Continue to draft him as a QB2.
