Summary

Tom Brady will be suspended for the first four games of the 2016 NFL season. His status does make it hard to peg when you can grab him as a fantasy player, but one thing is for sure--when he shows up, he'll produce. 2015 was one of his best seasons and while he may not hit that high water mark because of the suspension, when he does play he will put up top fantasy numbers. All you have to do is find some way to bridge the gap while he's gone. The addition of Martellus Bennett should make the passing game even better, as the Patriots are able to put defenses in a bind with mismatches that no NFL team can truly answer. (August 3)

Latest News

Patriots | Chris Hogan stands out (Sat Aug 27, 12:12 AM) - New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan caught five passes for a game-high 62 yards and scored on a 33-yard pass from QB Tom Brady in a 19-17 preseason win over the Carolina Panthers Friday, Aug. 26.

Our View: Hogan had a quiet preseason after a strong spring, but that changed in the dress rehearsal. He's a fine receiver to take as the last spot on your bench to see if he can start hot with Jimmy Garoppolo in the first four games of the season.
