Player Outlook

A combination of age and the newfound love in the Fantasy community for QBs with rushing upside has kept Tom Brady's offseason ADP down in early offseason drafts, but the lack of love is perplexing. Brady returns all of his key weapons and his rapport with stars like Mike Evans and Chris Godwin should improve in Year 2. More importantly, he should take a step forward in Year 2 of Bruce Arians' system -- the same system he caught fire in over his final 11 games in 2020. Brady finished with a 30:8 TD to INT ratio over his final 11 (including the playoffs), showing signs of locking in to a Fantasy-frinedly offensive system that is based on the vertical passing game. He's an excellent target in Rounds 7-11 of one-QB leagues for those who want to wait.

Player News
  • Brady is practicing without a brace or wrap over his surgically repaired knee, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. Brady played through an MCL tear last season and then had surgery to repair the injury in February. He made it back for June minicamp as a partial participant, and it seems he's now cleared for the start of training camp, preparing to defend his title on a Bucs team that looks much the same as last year's Super Bowl-winning squad. There were some close calls in free agency, but the Bucs ultimately re-signed Leonard Fournette, Antonio Brown and Rob Gronkowski, along with defensive starters Shaquil Barrett, Lavonte David and Ndamukong Suh. While a lack of rushing stats may keep him below the elite group of quarterbacks for fantasy purposes, Brady is in a good situation for prolific passing numbers, especially TDs.

  • Brady (knee) played through an MCL tear last season, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reported Thursday that Brady initially suffered a partial MCL tear in his final season with the Patriots but played through the injury in 2020 before getting surgery in February. Rapoport now suggests it was a full MCL tear, further adding to Brady's legend. In any case, the veteran quarterback participated in a portion of June minicamp, perhaps setting him up to be ready for the start of minicamp in late July. As was the case last season, Brady will have one of the better supporting casts in the NFL, including a WR trio of Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Antonio Brown.

  • Coach Bruce Arians said Brady (knee) took part in more drills than anticipated in Tuesday's minicamp session, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports. According to Arians, Brady was only held out of blitz-pickup drills, an indication the Buccaneers are comfortable with where the veteran quarterback stands in his recovery from the surgery he underwent on his left knee in February. Brady could continue to face some light restrictions when training camp begins in a month and a half, but any limitations likely would just be precautionary.

  • Brady's offseason knee surgery was far more serious than initially assumed but the veteran quarterback still projects to be available for mandatory minicamp in June, Ben Volin of The Boston Globe reports. Brady himself contradicted reports earlier in the offseason the veteran quarterback was simply undergoing a simple "clean-up procedure", but it's unclear how serious in nature the surgery actually was. All the reports post-surgery seem to indicate Brady's rehab is going according to plan, but it still wouldn't be shocking if the Buccaneers ease the 43-year-old back into playing shape.

  • Brady said Sunday that his recovery from offseason knee surgery continues to progress well, and he's hoping to be ready by mandatory minicamp in June, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. Brady's rehab continues to go as planned, and it sounds like his knee should be fully healed well before the start of the season. It wouldn't be surprising to see the Buccaneers take it easy on the veteran quarterback in the preseason because he has little to gain from exhibition games at this point in his career, but Brady should be firing on all cylinders by the time the games start to count.
