Touchdown Tom Brady ignites the Patriots Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had a big game Week 7 against the Jets.

Brady completed 20 of 37 passes for 261 yards and three touchdowns. He did not turn the ball over during the contest. Brady was able to exploit the Jets for decent gains, averaging 7.1 yards per attempt during the outing. He wasn't pressured all that often, getting sacked just once. With Stevan Ridley out, Brady made use of Shane Vereen. Vereen not only gained 43 yards on the ground, but also finished as the team's leading receiver during the contest. 

Brady will look for more Week 8 against the Bears.


Patriots QB Tom Brady good to go


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is good to go Week 7 against the Jets.

Brady was listed as probable due to an ankle injury, and is active heading into the game. As usual, Brady was listed on the injury report, but was always expected to play.


Tom Brady officially probable for TNF


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2014) The Patriots listed quarterback Tom Brady as probable for Thursday night's game against the Jets. He was limited in practice all week with an ankle injury, but is fully expected to start and play without limitations.

Timothy Wright doesn't have clear role yet


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/14/2014) After seemingly breaking out as Tom Brady's second tight end Week 5 against Cincinnati, the Patriots' Timothy Wright did find the end zone for a second straight game Week 6 at Buffalo. But he did so in minimalist fashion, catching one pass on one target for 1 yard.

It's not like the Patriots weren't throwing the ball, either. In fact, Brady set season-highs in passing yards (361) and passing touchdowns (four). He just didn't look Wright's way much when he was on the field.

That wasn't all that often, I should add. Wright played only 23 percent of the Patriots' snaps, which was actually an improvement from the 22 percent he played in Week 5. Unless the Patriots make a concerted effort to get him the ball, he's not going to be able to do much of that.

The Patriots like to use two tight ends as much as any team in football, and Wright remains on the periphery in Fantasy for that reason alone. But he's little more than a desperation bye-week replacement in his current role.


Tom Brady limited again Tuesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (ankle) was limited in Tuesday's practice ahead of Thursday's game against the Jets. Brady has thrown for 653 yards and six touchdowns without committing a turnover the past two weeks.

Tom Brady still dealing with ankle injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who rolled his ankle in practice late last week but played his best game Sunday, was limited in practice Monday by the injury. He's fully expected to play Thursday against the Jets.

Report: Tom Brady needed extensive treatment in order to play Week 6


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had arguably his finest performance of the season Sunday against the Bills, throwing for four touchdowns in a 37-22 win. Though, coming into Week 6 there was some concern Brady might not play since he was questionable due to an ankle injury.

While it appeared Brady was not hampered by the injury Sunday, two sources told CSNNE.com that Brady needed extensive treatment for the injury to be ready to play Week 6. Brady rolled his ankle during practice Friday and was listed as a limited participant before showing up on the injury report as questionable.


Time to trust in Tom Brady


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/12/2014) It's been slow going for Patriots quarterback Tom Brady to begin 2014, but after waking up with 292 yards and two touchdowns against Cincinnati last week, he was back in control Week 6 at Buffalo, throwing for 361 yards and four touchdowns.

To some extent, he was expected to carry the load against a defense that entered the day ranked second against the run, but Sunday's effort was the kind of throwback performance that gives Fantasy owners reason to believe he's back to being a must-start option.

He spread the ball around, giving Brandon LaFell, Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman each a chance to contribute more than 90 yards, and he didn't just stick to underneath stuff. He found Brian Tyms deep for a 43-yard touchdown in the third quarter and LaFell deep for a 56-yarder in the fourth.

And if the expected lack of a running game contributed to the Patriots' game plan, that might be the norm going forward. Stevan Ridley left the game in the third quarter with what some suspect is an ACL injury.

After a slow start last year, Brady had a six-game stretch in the middle of last season in which he averaged 370.8 yards and 2.3 touchdowns. I have a hunch history repeats itself here.


Tom Brady leads Patriots to win Week 6 behind four-TD game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady tossed four touchdowns and improved to 23-2 in his career against the Bills during a 37-22 win Week 6. Brady completed 27 of 37 passes for 361 yards and no interceptions in the victory.

Brady opened the scoring with a 1-yard touchdown pass to Timothy Wright early in the second quarter. He then gave New England a 20-7 lead with a 43-yard touchdown pass to Brian Tyms early in the third quarter.

Brady finished off the win with two fourth-quarter touchdown passes to Brandon LaFell. He hit LaFell for an 18-yard score with 8:42 left and then connected with LaFell for a 56-yard touchdown with 2:49 left.

Brady has passed for 653 yards, six touchdowns and no interceptions in his last two games. The Patriots are back in action Thursday against the Jets.


Tom Brady starting for Patriots Week 6


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) As expected, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was cleared to start Sunday against the Bills. He was listed as questionable due to an ankle injury.

Report: Patriots QB Tom Brady will start Week 6


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Despite being listed as questionable due to an ankle injury, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will start Sunday against the Bills, according to ESPN. Brady is coming off his first multi-touchdown game of the season in Week 5.

Report: Patriots QB Tom Brady sheds boot en route to Buffalo


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/11/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady appears ready to roll for the Sunday clash against Buffalo. He is traveling sans walking boot, a source has told the Boston Herald.

Brady had been deemed questionable with an ankle injury sustained in Friday practice. He is coming off arguably his finest effort of the season. He completed 23 of 35 passes for 292 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in a blowout defeat of Cincinnati.


Tom Brady among notable Patriots on Week 6 injury report


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Tom Brady was among the notable players on the final injury for the Patriots on Friday, leading up to their Week 6 divisional showdown at Buffalo. Brady suffered an ankle injury in practice and was ruled questionable.

Cornerback Brandon Browner (ankle), linebacker Jamie Collins (thigh), defensive lineman Dominique Easley (shoulder, knee), linebacker Dont'a Hightower (knee), wide receiver Matthew Slater (shoulder) and center Bryan Stork (concussion) were all labeled questionable.

Defensive end Chandler Jones (shoulder) and safety Devin McCourty (rib) were ruled probable. Safety Nate Ebner (finger) and offensive lineman Cameron Fleming (finger) were officially ruled out for Sunday.


Patriots' Tom Brady suffers ankle injury, questionable for Week 6


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady popped up on the injury report as a limited participant in practice because of an ankle injury he suffered on Friday, the Boston Herald reports.

Brady was officially labeled questionable for Week 6 at Buffalo. He is coming off a bounce-back 292-yard, two-touchdown performance Week 5 against the Bengals. Brady has not missed a game since tearing his ACL in 2008. If he can't start, head coach Bill Belichick will turn to rookie Jimmy Garoppolo for the start.


All's well that ends well for Tom Brady?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/6/2014) After a terrible start to the season, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady rebounded with a 292-yard, two-touchdown effort against a Bengals defense that had been pretty stout leading up to Week 5. So are we back to trusting him implicitly in Fantasy?

Well, maybe not. Trust doesn't come that easily, particularly at a position with so much depth, but the turnaround at least seemed to accompany a change in approach by the Patriots, who went back to using two tight ends like when they had Aaron Hernandez to pair with Rob Gronkowski. That gives it more legitimacy, I think.

It's also worth noting that after a comparably lackluster start last year, Brady flipped a switch in Week 9, averaging 370.8 yards and 2.3 touchdowns for a six-game stretch compared to 211.8 and 1.1 in the other 10 games. He may not be as steady as you'd like him to be, but when he's good, he's still very, very good.

Does that mean I'm starting him Week 6 at Buffalo? Well, it's not automatic, especially against a Bills defense that likes to pressure the quarterback. But if someone was crazy enough to drop Brady after his last game, I'm picking him up and weighing him against what I already have. If there's any coach I trust to make adjustments midseason, it's Bill Belichick.


Tom Brady bounces back with crisp performance


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who was abysmal in a Week 4 loss at Kansas City, bounced back Sunday night in a blowout of the Bengals. Brady completed 23 of 35 throws for 292 yards and two touchdowns without committing a turnover.

In the process, Brady became the sixth player in NFL history to surpass 50,000 passing yards.

Brady came out extremely sharp, leading New England to touchdowns on its first two drives. He found tight end Tim Wright for a 17-yard score in the first quarter and hit tight end Rob Gronkowski for a 16-yard touchdown in the third. Brady, who added 13 yards on four rushes, is up to six passing touchdowns through five games.

He'll visit the Bills in Week 6.


No elixir for Tom Brady's woes


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady realizes there's no quick fix to the team's offensive problems. New England's offensive line is in disarray, the team lacks explosive receivers, and Brady is making a surprising number of poor decisions.

"There’s no magic play, there’s no magic scheme," he told WEEI. "It’s us as players playing a lot better than we’re playing. This hasn’t been an isolated incident. I don’t think offensively we’ve played well all year. I don’t think we’ve played well for a long time. We’ve got to figure out the reasons why we’re not playing as well as we’re capable and try to improve them."

Brady is averaging under 200 passing yards per game and has accounted for more turnovers (5) than touchdowns (4).


It is time to sit Tom Brady


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) We all mostly assumed Tom Brady's 2013 season was an aberration, right? Sure, he posted his lowest touchdown total and yards per attempt mark since 2006, but hey, he didn't have Rob Gronkowski to throw to! So, what's the excuse now?

With Gronkowski playing a higher percentage of the snaps than any game prior, Brady still put up a dud on Monday night against the Chiefs, in the worst showing of an already disappointing season. He has now failed to even reach 15 Fantasy points in his first four games this season, and is off to the worst start of his career.

Even in his disappointing 2013 campaign, Brady had 75 Fantasy points through four games, compared to 43 after Monday's 6-point effort. It isn't all on Brady of course, as the Patriots' receiving corps beyond Gronkowski and Julian Edelman is pretty much a disaster -- though, of course, it isn't likely to get any better moving forward.

At this point, what looked to be an aberration is settling into the new reality. Brady's skills have slipped just enough that he can no longer make up for the subpar talent the organization has surrounded him with. And things won't get any easier for Brady in Week 5, with the Bengals on the schedule. No team has been stingier against opposing quarterbacks than the Bengals, who have allowed just two touchdowns through three games, with six total interceptions.

At this point, sitting Brady is a pretty easy call. In fact, the more pertinent question is whether the 26th-ranked Fantasy quarterback is still worth owning in 99 percent of CBSSports.com leagues. 


Tom Brady puts on disastrous performance


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was removed from the loss at Kansas City with his team trailing 41-7 early in the fourth quarter and replaced by rookie Jimmy Garoppolo. Brady turned in a horrific performance, completing 14 of 23 throws for 159 yards and a touchdown with two interceptions and a lost fumble.

Brady felt heavy pressure from a revved-up Chiefs defense. Linebacker Tamba Hali came in untouched for a strip-sack in the third quarter, then Brady got picked off on two of his next three drives. Receiver Julian Edelman cut his route short on the first interception, but Brady had thrown into double coverage anyway. Brady's second pick was returned 39 yards for a touchdown, ending his night.

Brady's lone highlight came Brandon LaFell turned a third-quarter slant into a 44-yard touchdown.

Having accounted for four touchdowns and five turnovers this season, Brady will face the Bengals on Sunday night.


Tom Brady again short of electric in win


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/21/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady again had trouble moving his team down the field in Week 3, this time at home against a highly suspect Raiders defense that allowed 30 points to the Texans last time out. The Patriots, going without the big defensive plays that propelled them to a 30-7 win over the Vikings last time out, put up only 16 points in Week 3, but it was just enough for the win.

Brady played mistake-free for the most part and still has yet to throw an interception this season, but without the benefit of a big play -- his longest pass went for only 22 yards -- he again had just one touchdown pass, a 6-yarder to tight end Rob Gronkowski late in the second quarter.

In all, he completed 24 of 37 passes for 234 yards, an improvement over the 149 he had at Minnesota in Week 2. His line would have looked better if Gronkowski hadn't dropped what looked like a 2-yard touchdown pass early in the fourth quarter.

Brady will look to get the Patriots passing game back firing on all cylinders Week 4 at Kansas City.


Tom Brady doesn't do much in easy win at Minnesota


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had another weak day statistically, but unlike in Week 1, he didn't have to do much. New England took advantage of Minnesota turnovers and built a big lead, leaving Brady to attempt just 22 passes in a 30-7 rout. He completed 15 of those passes for just 149 yards along with a touchdown to Julian Edelman from 9 yards out. Brady had no turnovers.

It's entirely possible he plays a good game but still doesn't rack up stats in the Patriots' home debut in Week 3 against the Raiders.


Tom Brady struggles in season-opening loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was not at his sharpest in Week 1 against the Dolphins Sunday, a 33-20 loss.

Brady threw the ball 56 times in the game, completing 29 of those passes for just 249 yards. That is his lowest yardage total for any game with 50-plus attempts in his career; his previous low was 288 yards on 52 attempts against Buffalo a year ago.

Brady did toss one touchdown in the game, a 6-yarder to Rob Gronkowski in the second quarter, but managed little else from that point on. He was under constant pressure and lost a pair of fumbles in the second half, while completing just 10 of 27 passes for 62 yards after halftime.

The offensive line had trouble keeping Brady upright for long stretches Sunday, which hurt his effectiveness. He will hope for better protection in Week 2 against the Vikings next Sunday.


Calf injury can't keep Tom Brady out for Week 1


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is active and in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Dolphins in Week 1, despite being listed as questionable for the game with a calf injury.

Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski expected to play


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (calf) and Rob Gronkowski (knee) are both expected to play Sunday against the Dolphins, despite being list on the official injury report as questionable, NESN.com reports.

Gronkowski is expected to see a limited number of snaps in his first game back from ACL surgery, but should still be on the field for about half of the team's offensive players. Brady is not expected to be limited at all. 


Patriots unveil injury report for opening week of season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2014) The Patriots have listed five players on their final injury report leading up to Sunday's opener against the Dolphins in Miami. Defensive tackle Chris Jones (ankle) and Michael Buchanan (ankle) were the only players ruled out for the game.

Defensive tackle Sealver Siliga (hand) was a limited participant in practice all week and has been ruled as questionable. Quarterback Tom Brady and tight end Rob Gronkowski were listed questionable but both are expected to play Sunday.
