  Patriots | Tom Brady has disappointing performance    Sun Dec 23, 05:36 PM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady went 13-for-24 for 126 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions against the Buffalo Bills in Week 16.

Footballguys view: Brady wasn't sharp and his arm wasn't the focal point of the offensive game plan for the second straight week. He's not a QB1 against the Jets next week and he's not going to be drafted as a QB1 next year at this rate.

  Patriots | Tom Brady throws for 358 yards    Sun Dec 9, 04:04 PM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady went 27-for-43 for 358 yards and three touchdowns against the Miami Dolphins in Week 14.

Footballguys view: Brady came through for fantasy teams and revived the value of Rob Gronkowski, but the lack of a touchdown on the last drive of the game left the Dolphins an opening for the Miami Miracle. Brady is a strong QB1 at Pittsburgh next week.

  Patriots | Week 14 injury report for New England    Fri Dec 7, 03:25 PM

New England Patriots CB Stephon Gilmore (ankle) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 7, and is listed as questionable for Week 14 against the Miami Dolphins. TE Dwayne Allen (knee) was upgraded to a full practice Friday but is listed as questionable. QB Tom Brady (knee) and TE Rob Gronkowski (ankle, back) were not given official practice designations Friday but do not appear on the injury report. S Patrick Chung (shoulder) returned to a full practice Friday and was also removed from the injury report.

Footballguys view: Gilmore's injury is new. He might be in danger of missing the game, which would make DeVante Parker a more interesting desperation play for Week 14.

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (illness, knee) is traveling with the team for their Week 12 game, according to a source.

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (knee, illness) will start Week 12's game against the New York Jets, even though he was listed as questionable on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Brady was downgraded on Friday and did not practice, likely due to this illness. He's going to start against the Jets and is a low-end QB1 for Fantasy GMs in Week 12.

  Patriots | Tom Brady dealing with illness    Sat Nov 24, 02:25 AM

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (knee, illness) did not practice Friday, Nov. 23, due to an illness, which is in addition to the knee problem he's been dealing with this week.

Footballguys view: Brady was downgraded Friday and late-week moves like that are always a bit of a concern. That being said, we fully expect Brady to start in Week 12 against the Jets. He's a low-end QB1 option for Fantasy GMs this week.

  Patriots | Week 12 injury report for New England    Fri Nov 23, 04:51 PM

WR Julian Edelman (foot) was not given an official in injury designation Friday after being a full participant in practice early in the week but has been removed from the injury report.

Footballguys view: There have been no indications that Gronkowski, Brady, or Michel will sit on Sunday, but check back before kickoff just in case.

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed 21-of-41 passes for 254 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 10 game against the Tennessee Titans.

Footballguys view: The Patriots offense looked very mortal with no Rob Gronkowski or Shaq Mason and Julian Edelman and Trent Brown departing mid-game. They'll have some things to look at during the bye as they are a shoo-in to win their division but vulnerable after that.

  Patriots | Tom Brady intends to play in 2022    Tue Nov 6, 09:57 AM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady told NBCSports's Peter King after the game Sunday, Nov. 4, he fully intends to be playing in 2022, which is the next time he would face the Green Bay Packers in the regular season.

Footballguys view: That sounds a bit extreme, but with Brady you just never know. Brady is 41-years old right now and in the 2022 season he would be 45 years old. The Patriots are in another Super Bowl window and the Packers playoff chances are up in the air this season. A Brady vs Rodgers matchup would be great in the Super Bowl but it doesn't seem like that's a possibility based on the way Green Bay is playing.

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady was 1-for-9 for 12 yards targeting wide receivers outside the numbers during Weeks 2 and 3.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Brady can improve on these numbers...especially when Josh Gordon gets on the field. Gordon was inactive for Week 3 against the Lions but he should be out there against the Dolphins in Week 4. Julian Edelman is eligible to return from his four-game suspension in Week 5. Reinforcements are on the way for the Patriots passing attack.

  Patriots | Tom Brady likely to play    Thu Aug 16, 10:51 AM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (back) is expected to play deep into the first half of the second preseason game Thursday, Aug. 16.

Footballguys view: It's an interesting move, given we all know what Brady can do, and we all know how critical he is to the success of the team. Does this mean we won't see him much -- if at all -- in the third preseason game. Bill Belichick and the Patriots always zig when everyone else zags, so it's hard to know what to read into this, if anything. Brady is going off the board at 3 in many drafts right now, and you won't have to watch him in a preseason game to know he's worth the price tag.

  Patriots | Tom Brady plans to report early    Sat Jul 21, 01:41 PM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady indicated that he plans to report to training camp early.

Footballguys view: Brady was never going to miss training camp, and even though he had some interesting comments about the Patriots coaching staff (mainly Bill Belichick) this offseason he showed up when the work was mandatory. He turns 41-years old in early August, yet Brady is still near the top of his game. Brady's current ADP is QB4 (6.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Patriots | Tom Brady discusses future    Sun Jun 17, 05:06 PM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady acknowledged in an interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired on her network Sunday, June 17, he knows he is getting closer to retirement as he nears his 41st birthday in August, telling Winfrey he is 'seeing that there's definitely an end coming, sooner rather than later.' However, Brady also added he wants to play 'as long as I'm loving the training and preparation and willing to make the commitment.'

Footballguys view: The end is near for Brady, and fantasy owners don't know if he's going to play one more year or five more years. Currently, Brady is going off the board at QB4 (6.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Patriots | Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski skipping OTAs    Mon Jun 11, 01:08 PM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady and TE Rob Gronkowski do not plan on participating in organized team activities this week after attending the mandatory minicamp last week, according to source.

Footballguys view: Gronkowski has been waiting to get a new contract, and reports indicate that is coming at some point in the future. Brady skipped voluntary work earlier this offseason, then he showed up for mandatory work, and now he's back to missing work when he doesn't have to be there. When things are mandatory (training camp), Brady and Gronkowski should be there.

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady said he is not sure if he will participate in organized team activities next week.

Footballguys view: Brady isn't a guy we need to see in OTAs, and there aren't so many changes that he needs to get used to his guys. Brady is likely to be one of the top fantasy quarterbacks again this year, whether he is in a pair of shorts and t-shirt next week or not.

  Patriots | Tom Brady expected for minicamp    Wed May 23, 08:05 AM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady is expected to be at minicamp, according to Patriots owner Robert Kraft. 'These are voluntary workouts... I think he's in great shape,' Kraft said. 'I think he's at an age where he's blessed to have three children and has responsibilities. It's hard to fulfill those during the season.' Kraft also said Brady's relationship with head coach Bill Belichick is good.

Footballguys view: Brady is no doubt taking care of himself as he skips voluntary OTAs. His relationship with Belichick is in question, but once the team starts winning all that will wash away.

  Patriots | Tom Brady absent    Mon May 21, 08:46 AM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady won't report to organized team activities Monday, May 21, but he's expected to report to mandatory camp in June.

Footballguys view: This absence has stirred up some drama around the superstar quarterback. He reportedly is going to spend more time with his family and his workout guru Alex Guerrero instead of showing up to OTAs. There are plenty of questions about his future, but when mandatory workouts begin we should see Brady in attendance.
