Player Outlook

Last year, many Fantasy owners got a bargain with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady because he fell on Draft Day with the fear of a four-game suspension from his role in Deflategate. As we know now, Brady played all 16 games and finished as the No. 2 Fantasy quarterback in standard leagues with 4,770 passing yards, 36 touchdowns and seven interceptions and 53 rushing yards and three touchdowns. It's the third time in the past five years where Brady had at least 4,700 passing yards, 34 touchdowns and fewer than 10 interceptions. Now, here we are again after Brady's four-game suspension was upheld on appeal, and he's expected to sit out the first four games of the 2016 season. With the way this case has unfolded, things could change prior to Week 1, but if Brady is out for four games he should be considered a low-end No. 1 Fantasy quarterback worth drafting with a mid-round pick. You'll have to draft a capable No. 2 option -- Derek Carr and Jameis Winston are two options -- or you can just handcuff him to Jimmy Garoppolo if you're stuck. We hope Brady is able to play 16 games in 2016, but even if he's limited to 12 games he should still post quality stats this season.

  • Patriots' Tom Brady: Thumb issue is minor
    By RotoWire Staff

    Brady (suspension), who returned to the team Tuesday following an excused absence, downplayed the thumb injury he sustained in advance of last Thursday's preseason game against the Bears, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. Brady accidentally sliced his right thumb on a pair of scissors before the contest, and when asked about the injury Tuesday, the QB noted that his thumb feels "good" now, adding that "it took a few days. I wanted to go (Thursday) and Coach [Bill Belichick] said it's probably best if we just take it easy." Moreover, Brady put forth the notion that he would have played last Thursday if it had been a regular-season game. While his playing status for this Friday's preseason tilt at Carolina has not yet been determined, Brady's four-game suspension to start the coming season is clearly more relevant from a fantasy perspective than his thumb issue, which turned out to be minor.

  • Patriots' Tom Brady: Returns to team
    By RotoWire Staff

    Brady (thumb/suspension) returned to the team Tuesday following an excused two-day absence for non-injury related reasons, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. Brady accidentally sliced his right thumb on a pair of scissors last week, so it remains to be seen if he will fully participate in practice Tuesday. Moreover, Brady's status for Friday's preseason game against the Panthers has yet to be clarified, though in any case, the QB won't suit up in a regular season contest until Week 5 as a result of the reinstatement of his four-game suspension.

  • Brady (suspension) -- who missed Thursday's preseason game against the Bears after he sliced his right thumb with a pair of scissors -- will not practice Sunday or Monday, CSN New England reports. The report adds, however, that Brady's slated absences are excused and are not injury-related. Brady, who is expected back with the team for practice as Friday's preseason tilt against the Panthers approaches, is in any case, in line to serve a four-game suspension to start the season. In his absence during that span, Jimmy Garoppolo is slated to start at QB for the Patriots.

  • Brady (suspension), who sat out Thursday's preseason game against the Bears after accidentally slicing his thumb on a pair of scissors, "will be OK in time," according to the QB's agent, Don Yee, NFL.com reports. Leading up to Thursday's contest, Brady had been expected to see his first preseason action, but what the report refers to as "the minor injury" forced coach Bill Belichick turn to backup Jimmy Garoppolo, who in any case, is in line to start the Patriots' first four regular season games, with Brady set to serve a suspension during that span.

  • Brady suffered a laceration to his right thumb prior to Thursday's preseason contest against the Bears, which accounts for his absence, CSN New England reports. After it leaked that Brady would play Thursday, he was surprisingly absent from pregame warmups and included among the DNPs for the game. He suffered the cut during an attempt to pry something from his cleats. The severity of the injury is unclear, but the Pats may very well hold him out of the final two exhibitions in order to preserve his health. If the preceding comes to pass, he won't suit up until Week 5 of the regular season due to his impending four-game suspension.
