Summary

We all know Tom Brady will return from his suspension (whatever length it ends up being) and be the starting quarterback, no matter how well Jimmy Garoppolo plays. Further, we know that Brady will continue to put up tremendous and fantastic numbers with the Patriots, especially as they have the same core group of receiving targets for a second straight season. Brady is currently suspended for the first four games of the 2015 season, but is appealing. We don't know how much - if anything - it gets reduced, but even if he serves the whole thing, he's still one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL and will give you top quarterback fantasy numbers the rest of the way. If you draft carefully, you should survive that first stretch. After a rough start last year, Brady put up top ten quarterback numbers the rest of the way. Also keep in mind that Brady is going to come back with a rather sizable chip on his shoulder after all this Ballghazi/Deflategate nonsense. An angry Brady is a productive Brady. (May 17)

Patriots | Tom Brady's ruling not expected for weeks (Thu Jun 25, 06:21 PM) - New England Patriots QB Tom Brady isn't expected to hear the decision from his suspension hearing Tuesday, June 23, until mid-to-late July.

Our View: Leave it to our beloved NFL to keep us hanging. Most fantasy drafts don't get fired up until August, so most owners will know whether or not Brady is suspended--and how long he's out for.

Patriots | Tom Brady decision due in July (Thu Jun 25, 09:09 AM) - New England Patriots QB Tom Brady is unlikely to have a decision on the appeal of his four-game suspension until mid-to-late July.

Our View: The wait continues. Brady's ADP is tracking as a low-end QB1 (around the eight round) and the FBGs staff is a bit split on him. On the one hand, missing four games (as it stands) will force his year-end numbers to look like those of a QB2. However, if his sentence is reduced or if you look at a per-game basis even on a truncated season, Brady will probably give you QB1 numbers. If you can find a good replacement for the first five weeks of the season (the Patriots have an early bye), then Brady is a good player to snag who can pay off late.

Patriots | Tom Brady's appeal hearing continues (Tue Jun 23, 07:31 PM) - New England Patriots QB Tom Brady is still having the appeal of his four-game suspension heard Tuesday, June 23, and the NFL does not want to continue the hearing Thursday, June 25.

Our View: We'll know more about this hearing in the near future. With NFL commissioner Roger Goodell open to "new evidence" it leaves the door open for the four-game ban to get reduced. We'll see if Brady gets a break, or if he has to miss the first month of the season.
