Description: Another ugly outing from Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
Insight: Brady and Patriots were never in this one and he finished a short night of work going 14-of-23 for 159 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions. At this point there are better options out there.

Description: So this is what its come to for Patriots quarterback Tom Brady - a "game manager."
Insight: Brady passed 37 times, completing 24 for 234 yards and one lone score. The "new" Brady is averaging 210 ypg and one touchdown. Come back Wes Welker. Come back Randy Moss, Tom needs you.

Description: patriots quarterback Tom Brady is quickly turning into a "game manager."
Insight: Brady threw just 22 times for 149 yards and a score. He hasn't cracked the 250-yard mark in his last four regular season games and averaged just 237.5 ypg in two playoff games last season.
9/7/2014 6:30:00 PM
Description: Tom Brady owners can't be happy with what they saw in Week 1 against Miami.
Insight: The Pats quarterback threw the ball 56 times for just 249 yards and was sacked four times. It's the lack of balance that should concern fantasy owners. The Patriots rushed the ball just 20 times and dropped back to pass 60 times.
9/4/2014 5:45:00 PM
Description: New England QB Tom Brady did not practice on Thursday due to a calf issue according to patriots.com.
Insight: The Patriots did not list Brady on the injury list on Wednesday, so that means this is a new injury. Although it will be hard to find out before Sunday the status on the injury due to Bill Belichick's lack of words, we don't expect Brady to miss Week 1.
8/7/2014 10:59:00 AM
Description: New England QB Tom Brady will not play in Thursday's game against Washington, according to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald.
Insight: Brady did his work as the two teams scrimmaged this week. Don't read anything into his absence. Ryan Mallett will get the start.
1/16/2014 9:08:00 AM
Description: New England QB Tom Brady returned to the practice facility Thursday after missing practice Wednesday because of an illness.
Insight: Brady will be good to go Sunday when the Patriots play Denver in the AFC Championship. Another Brady-Peyton Manning matchup is always a great thing for the NFL and fantasy owners.

Insight: Consider his absence precautionary. Brady will be good to go Sunday when the Patriots play Denver in the AFC Championship. The matchup is one of the most anticipated in NFL history.
12/15/2013 5:31:00 PM
Description: Even with Rob Gronkowski out, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady threw for 364 yards and two touchdowns Sunday at Miami.
Insight: Brady has thrown for 2,225 yards and 14 touchdowns over his last six games after struggling in the first eight.
12/8/2013 6:37:00 PM
Description: New England QB Tom Brady threw for a season-high 418 yards in Sunday's come-from-behind win over Cleveland.
Insight: And he did it with Rob Gronkowski out of commission for most of the second half. After struggling mightily early in the year, Brady has looked like a totally different player over the past several weeks. Even if Gronk is done for the year, and it looks like he might be, we still have faith in Brady to get the job done. He'll face the Dolphins in Miami in Week 15.
12/1/2013 5:47:00 PM
Description: Patriots quarterback Tom Brady completed 29-of-41 passes for 371 yards and two touchdowns with one interception Sunday at Houston.
Insight: Brady has completed 70.1 percent of his passes and averaged 360.8 yards per game and 8.80 yards per pass over the last four games after completing under 56 percent his first eight. He's once again a trustworthy QB1.
11/3/2013 7:52:00 PM
Description: Just when you think he's washed up, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady pulls this out of his hat: 23-of-33 for 432 yards, four touchdowns, zero interceptions Sunday against Pittsburgh.
Insight: Go figure. Brady threw for 116 yards in Week 8 against the Dolphins and came in completing 55.7 percent of his passes with a 5.9 yards-per-attempt average. He also was playing against a defense that had allowed just five passing touchdowns and 11.6 fantasy points per game to opposing QBs this season. And yet he had his best game of the season by far.
10/25/2013 2:53:00 PM
Description: The expected return of Danny Amendola added to the return of tight end Rob Gronkowski last weekend could make Patriots quarterback Tom Brady a fantasy stud again.
Insight: Brady has only surpassed the 300-yard mark one time this season, but has been dealing with a mostly inexperienced receiving corps. With these two guys back in the lineup fantasy owners will be expecting big things from Brady against the Dolphins in Week 8.
10/24/2013 7:25:00 PM
Description: A shoulder issue limited Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in practice on Thursday. SOURCE: Shalise Manza Young, Boston.com
Insight: Aside from one spectacular drive at the end of Week 6, Brady has looked awful over his last three starts (1 TD, 3 INT, 51.2 completion percentage). The eight-time Pro Bowler's fantasy stock has never been lower.
10/20/2013 5:46:00 PM
Description: Bad news for fantasy owners: Rob Gronkowski's return to action didn't elevate Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's fantasy value.
Insight: Brady had 228 yards, zero TDs and one pick on 22-of-46 passing against the Jets. He just hasn't looked right all season, throwing for 1,708 yards, eight touchdowns and five interceptions in seven games. The 36-year-old is completing just 55.4 percent of his passes and averaging 5.99 yards per attempt, both of which are career worsts.
10/13/2013 7:46:00 PM
Description: Tom Brady's touchdown pass to Kenbrell Thompkins with five seconds remaining clinched the victory for New England Sunday in a thrilling finish at Gillette Stadium.
Insight: What ... a .... game. Sunday marked New Orleans' first loss of the season. It wasn't a great day overall for Brady (25-for-43, TD, INT, 269 yds) but the 70-yard game-winning drive he led with just over a minute remaining was nothing short of incredible. Sunday proved that even at age 36, Brady's still got it.
10/6/2013 5:55:00 PM
Description: Patriots quarterback Tom Brady failed to throw a touchdown pass for the first time in 52 games Sunday against the Bengals.
Insight: The return of Danny Amendola did not cure New England's passing woes, as Brady completed 18-of-38 for 197 yards with one interception. Brady has had difficulty developing a rapport with his new receiving targets this season and it has caused him to complete under 60 percent of his passes.
9/22/2013 6:22:00 PM
Description: New England QB Tom Brady (25-for-36, 225 yards) got back on track with a two-touchdown day Sunday against the Buccaneers.
Insight: He still didn't look like the Brady of old but given his lack of resources (his two best receivers are rookies), it was a pretty good outing. Things are only going to get better for Brady as Rob Gronkowski and Danny Amendola both have a very real chance of playing next week against the Falcons.
9/22/2013 11:58:00 AM
Description: Tom Brady's Week 3 fantasy value takes a big hit with Rob Gronkowski out of the lineup.
Insight: None of Brady's receivers outside of Julian Edelman showed any ability last week against the Jets and with Darrelle Revis and Dashon Goldson anchoring the Tampa Bay secondary, it could be a long day for the Pats' offense. Without his most reliable receiver, Brady isn't a top-ten fantasy quarterback.
8/16/2013 8:57:00 PM
Description: Patriots quarterback Tom Brady went 11-of-12 for 107 yards and a touchdown in New England's second preseason game Friday at Tampa Bay, just two days after spraining his knee in practice.
Insight: Brady is a ridiculous 18-of-20 (90 percent) for 172 yards in the preseason. The Patriots QB also hasn't thrown a pick over 186 passes in four padded joint practices with the Eagles and Buccaneers, according to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald. Concerns about Brady's weapons may actually make the quarterback underrated in fantasy drafts at an ADP of 50.4. Danny Amendola and rookies Aaron Dobson, Kenbrell Thompkins and Zach Sudfield have all stood out during camp.
