New England Patriots QB Tom Brady received the first snaps during quarterback drills and seven-on-seven drills during practice Thursday, July 28, while QB Jimmy Garoppolo received the first snaps during 11-on-11 drills. Garoppolo went 11-for-14 during the team drills, while Brady went 8-for-14.
Fantasy Tip: Both Brady and Garoppolo will receive work during training camp even though Brady likely will be suspended for the first four games of the season. Brady should still be considered a solid No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues despite the suspension. Garoppolo can be a matchup play in some leagues but probably should be seen as a No. 2 quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: It's laughable to suggest otherwise, so there's no surprise here. Brady slips a few spots due to his four-game suspension, but he sits at the bottom of the midrange QB1 area in fantasy. Jimmy Garoppolo is a matchup play the first month, and he's a QB2 in fantasy.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis will probably take it easy leading up to the regular season. New England is good about not taking any unnecessary risks, except for when it comes to air pressure in footballs, of course. If Lewis is at full health before the season starts, he'll be a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 consideration in PPR formats.

Fantasy Tip: Edelman avoided a serious injury, but we don't really know just how much he'll be able to practice yet. He probably won't miss the start of the regular season, but an eye should be kept on his progress throughout training camp and preseason. Edelman is a borderline WR1 in PPR leagues.

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan is likely to see extended reps with QBs Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo with WRs Danny Amendola (ankle, knee) and Julian Edelman (foot) on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list.
Fantasy Tip: Hogan has a chance in training camp and the preseason, but when the games begin for real he will likely be nothing more than a WR4/5 or flex option in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (hip), who missed all of the spring session due to a hip injury, was not placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list and appears ready for training camp.
Fantasy Tip: Blount might be fighting for his roster spot in training camp and the preseason. If he can make the roster he is a decent RB4 or RB5 for depth, but avoid him outside of the later rounds in most fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Amendola has had trouble staying on the field throughout his career and is an untrustworthy fantasy football commodity. Leave him to the waiver wire in standard leagues. Keep an eye on Edelman's progress this fall, but if he's ready for Week 1, he should be firmly in WR2 territory with more intrigue in PPR leagues. Despite a strong season for Lewis in 2015 before his injury, his injury makes him extremely risky. Not to mention the fact he's never had more than 50 carries in a season in the NFL. He's running back depth in deeper leagues and could be a flex option in certain weeks in PPR formats.
