Summary

Tom Brady could be suspended for the first four games of the 2016 NFL season. Or he might not. He's appealing again, and we thought for sure he was suspended last season, but that didn't happen. So anyone who says they know for sure is trying to sell you something. 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, if he indeed serves his suspension. (May 20)

Patriots | Patriots QBs splitting reps (Fri May 27, 02:28 PM) - New England Patriots QBs Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo split first-team reps at practice Thursday, May 26. Last year, Brady dominated the top-tier work.

Our View: The team is wise to prepare Garoppolo for a starting role just in case Brady's four-game suspension is upheld. Some dynasty owners are excited about Garoppolo's upside, but we want to see him show more boldness as a pocket passer before we get too excited. In college, Garoppolo didn't respond well to even mild pressure.

Patriots | Martellus Bennett, Tom Brady connecting (Thu May 26, 06:44 PM) - New England Patriots QB Tom Brady and TE Martellus Bennett connected several times in the red zone, including some touchdowns, during organized team activities Thursday, May 26. Bennett was New England's primary tight end in practice with TE Rob Gronkowski (undisclosed) not practicing.

Our View: Gronkowski is the top target, but don't be surprised if the Patriots get Bennett highly involved. Once upon a time they had Aaron Hernandez across from Gronkowski, and it worked beautifully. Bennett could replicate that. We like him as a nice TE2 option with upside.

Patriots | Tom Brady to file appeal (Mon May 23, 08:16 AM) - New England Patriots QB Tom Brady's legal team will officially file its appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit Monday, May 23, which is the deadline to do so. 'The facts here are so drastic and so apparent that the court should rehear it,' attorney Ted Olson said.

Our View: DeflateGate isn't over yet....but we'll sure be glad when it is.
