Patriots' Jimmy Garoppolo: Early-season starts on tap
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

With Tom Brady's four-game suspension having been reinstated Monday, Garoppolo is currently in line to start the Patriots' first four regular season contests.

With Garoppolo the only other QB rostered by the Patriots at this time, look for the team to add QB depth either via free agency or though the upcoming NFL draft. Assuming the latest ruling remains in place, Garoppolo is in a position to gain some valuable NFL starting experience out of the gate, in his third season as a pro. In doing so, Garoppolo should maintain a degree of early-season fantasy utility, while leading the New England offense. Moreover, the 24-year-old signal-caller could perhaps establish himself as a player that other teams might target in a trade down the road, given that Brady remains under contract with the Patriots through the 2019 season.

Patriots' Jimmy Garoppolo: Closes out Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Garoppolo was on the field for the Patriots' last four snaps on offense in Sunday's 20-10 loss to the Dolphins after entering the game with 1:56 remaining on the clock, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. Garoppolo completed one pass (on his first four attempts of the season) for six yards in the process.

As the 2015 season approached, Garoppolo was penciled in as the Patriots' early-season starter, thanks to starter Tom Brady's NFL-imposed four-game suspension, but once that ruling was overturned, Garoppolo reverted to his duties as the team's No. 2 QB. While that kept the 24-year-old in a reserve role, coach Bill Belichick noted after the completion of the regular season that Garoppolo has made "great strides" this year in various areas of his game. "We see it on a daily basis," Belichick added. In advance of the postseason, Brady is nursing an ankle injury, but it's not an issue that is expected to sideline him for any game action.

LaFell: Learning from Brady has been great for Jimmy Garoppolo
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

If Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is suspended at the start of the season in the Deflategate scandal, one of the more interesting storylines would be the play of Jimmy Garoppolo.

Garroppolo, who was a rookie in 2014, has little game experience. However, Patriots wide receiver Brandon LaFell says he has confidence in the backup quarterback and says a year learning under Brady should suit him well.

"Jimmy has grown a lot since he first stepped foot up there in Foxborough last year," LaFell said, per ESPN. "He got a little experience during the later part of the season against Buffalo; he showed a little glimpse of what he can do. He’s been having a nice OTAs, a nice offseason with us.

"I feel like studying behind Tom has been great for him. If we have to be without Tom for the first couple games, I’m pretty sure Tom will be in Jimmy’s ear helping him prepare each and every way he can to go out here and lead this team. I think we have a great group of guys around him that will kind of take the pressure off Jimmy so he won’t have to feel like he has to go out there and win the game himself."
