Patriots | LeGarrette Blount goes to NFI list

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 15:47:36 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (undisclosed) was placed on the Non-Football Injury list Wednesday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Blount is already suspended for the first game of the season, and he is expected to be available for the remaining 15 games. He should be the Patriots' lead back after Week 1 and is worth at least drafting as a RB3.

Patriots | Tom Brady defends broken phone

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 06:19:23 -0700

Updating previous reports, New England Patriots QB Tom Brady posted on Facebook that he replaced his broken phone with a new one after his attorneys told the NFL "my actual phone device" would not be investigated. His representatives turned over requested cell phone records and emails, Brady said, and tried to obtain text messages from his old phone.

Fantasy Tip: Brady could draw this out in court and not miss a game this season. If that occurs, he'd fall right under the elite tier of fantasy quarterbacks. However, missing our games keeps him out until Week 6 and makes him a weak No. 1.

Patriots | Tom Brady offers lesser penalty

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 22:42:52 -0700

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots QB Tom Brady could have had his suspended reduced based on a series of conditions. According to a source with knowledge of the situation, the NFL was willing to drop the suspension by "at least 50 percent" if Brady admitted to having knowledge of what the team's staff was doing to footballs, he admitted to failing to cooperate with the Ted Wells investigation and he apologized.

Fantasy Tip: Brady could have had his suspension reduced two or three games, but it appears this case will be headed before a federal judge.

Patriots | NE still wins without Tom Brady

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 14:07:49 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady is facing a four-game suspension, but the Patriots have done fairly well without him. In games Brady has missed since he became a starter in 2001, New England has gone 10-5. They have averaged about two fewer points per game and about 27 fewer passing yards per game. However, their rushing yards have increased from 115.7 yards per game to 143.5 yards per game. Their total yards per game have actually increased as well from 366.8 yards per game to 367.3 yards per game.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard to imagine the Patriots posting 367.3 total yards per game with Jimmy Garoppolo at the helm. The Patriots will be without Brady and starting RB LeGarrette Blount for Week 1, so they could struggle right off the bat. If Brady can produce at his usual rate upon his return, he could still turn into a low-end QB1, but he should be regarded as a QB2 with the suspension being upheld.

Patriots | Tom Brady taking appeal to court

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 13:43:54 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady has given permission to the NFL Players Association to appeal his case in federal court, according to a source. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell upheld Brady's four-game suspension for his involvement in deflating footballs in last year's postseason.

Fantasy Tip: What looked like the end could be a new beginning, as this case could take a while to reach a new or similar verdict in court. The bottom line is that Brady is currently facing a four-game suspension and his fantasy value is taking a good hit with it. He should now be viewed as a QB2.

Patriots | Tom Brady's suspension upheld

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 11:43:44 -0700

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots QB Tom Brady's four-game suspension has been upheld by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell Tuesday, July 28.

Fantasy Tip: This case could very well be heading to court now, as La Canfora indicated. If Brady does end up serving his four-game suspension this season, he could find himself in QB2 territory at season's end. Jimmy Garoppolo has shown some success in the NFL, but he's obviously no Tom Brady. Those who draft Brady, which shouldn't be until the middle rounds if he's out four games, might want to take Garoppolo in a later round.

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 | Several players placed on PUP list

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.
