Tom Brady relies on Gronkowski


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/26/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady relies quite heavily on tight end Rob Gronkowski, reports ESPN. It will help Brady tremendously if Gronkowski plays 16 games coming off last year's torn ACL.

Gronkowski played seven games last season. The report says Brady completed 64.1 percent of his passes in the games Gronkowski played and 57.6 percent in the others.

Brady also targeted Gronkowski 66 times during that period, 17 more than any other Patriot.


QB coach working on Tom Brady's mechanics


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2014) Tom Brady's private coach, Tom House, said he noticed several mechanical flaws in the veteran's performance last year.

"As he’s getting a little older you lose a little strength, you lose a little flexibility," House told the Boston Globe. "And what was happening was he was noticing that his accuracy and his long ball weren’t what they were three or four years ago. So we ran him through the computer, compared him to the models we have created for movement efficiency, and there were really, really small things that were causing his issues."

Brady was decent but not spectacular for the Patriots last year, completing 60.5 percent of his passes for 4,343 yards and 25 touchdowns with 11 interceptions.

"His front side was a little too rotational," House said. "He wasn’t maintaining his torque long enough.

"One of the things that we’ve learned about quarterbacking -- it’s not the length of the stride, it’s the timing of the stride. Tom is long and lanky," House said. "If Tom has an issue, he gets a little long. ... That’s one of the things that we focus on when we analyze Tom every year and we maintain during the season, is how quick does he get into the foot stride?"


Tom Brady says he feels better than he did at 25


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who has started 89 straight games, said he's feeling better at age 36 than he did at 25, reports Sports Illustrated.

"It’s hard to explain this to people, but the commitment I make, in terms of keeping my body in shape and my nutrition right, should make me healthy," he said. "I feel better today than when I was 25, and I know that’s hard for people to believe, but I do. I work at it. Basically, I work all offseason to prepare my body to not get hurt. I can’t help the team if I’m on the sidelines. I’ve got to be durable."

Brady ranked 13th in Fantasy scoring among quarterbacks last season.


Patriots draft QB Jimmy Garoppolo


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) With the No. 62 pick in the NFL Draft, the Patriots selected quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo from Eastern Illinois.

Garoppolo will be No. 3 on the depth chart for the Patriots behind Tom Brady and Ryan Mallett. He could be the eventual replacement for Brady if Mallett isn't with the Patriots beyond 2014 when he's a free agent.

A four-year starter, Garoppolo ran a unique offense that combined an up-tempo approach with a pure read philosophy at Eastern Illinois. The end result was a slew of plays week after week -- and the stats to match. Garoppolo threw for 13,156 passing yards and 118 touchdowns over four seasons and impressively had just nine interceptions over 568 pass attempts.

He's considered a smart, big enough quarterback with a good arm and a very fast release, but questions about his experience playing in the FCS rather than the FBS cloud his future. The Patriots have time to find out with Brady not going anywhere any time soon.


Tom Brady's lack of bombs not all his fault


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was 22 of 75 last season on throws that traveled at least 20 yards, a horrific 29 percent. But MassLive.com claims Brady's receivers often let him down.

The website blames "receiver error" for 20 of those 53 misses, citing eight drops, seven wrong routes and "five other miscellaneous incidents that appeared to be the fault of the receiver." Wipe out those mistakes, the report said, and Brady's accuracy rate on deep throws climbs to a more respectable 40 percent.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2014) The quarterback NFL players would want under center with two minutes left in a close Super Bowl is not playing in the 2014 Super Bowl. Rather, it's Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, according to a survey of about 320 players.

Tom Brady out of the Pro Bowl


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has backed out of the Pro Bowl.

The news shouldn't come as a surprise, as Brady has backed out of the event the past five seasons. He's been named to the Pro Bowl team nine times in his career. The team has yet to announce why Brady pulled himself out of the game. He'll be replaced by Alex Smith.


Tom Brady off target in AFC title game loss


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady missed at least three deep throws in the 26-16 AFC Championship Game loss at Denver. He finished 24 of 38 for 277 yards and a touchdown with no interceptions.

In the first quarter, Brady overthrew a wide-open Julian Edelman on a bomb. He continued to play erratically, and he was hurt by his team's inability to run the ball. New England rushed for 11 yards in the first half, 64 total.

Brady finally led a touchdown drive in the fourth quarter, capping it with a 7-yard strike to Edelman. He ran for a 5-yard score with 3:13 remaining.

Brady will turn 37 a month before the 2014 season.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/7/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has a cold.

Tom Brady takes back seat to backs in defeat of Bills


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady did more handing off of the ball than throwing it Sunday against Buffalo. If it wasn't broken, he didn't need to fix it.

Brady watched running backs LeGarrette Blount and Stevan Ridley run over, around and through the Bills. He threw only to keep the defense honest, completing his only touchdown pass on the first play of the fourth quarter, a 5-yarder to Shane Vereen. He finished 14 of 24 for 122 yards, one touchdown and one interception. That yard total was his lowest since Week 8 against Miami.

A quarterback who usually gets many receivers involved, Brady found just four. The absence of tight end Rob Gronkowski and the loss of Danny Amendola during the game to injuries limited his options. Wide receiver Julian Edelman received 11 of his 22 targets.


Tom Brady cleared for Week 17 game

Tom Brady still a fine Fantasy play despite tough matchup


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) Fantasy owners should not be alarmed by the comparative day off Patriots quarterback Tom Brady took last Sunday to end his run of explosive performances. His lack of passing attempts was reflective only of the lopsided score in the shockingly easy defeat of Baltimore.

Brady completed 14 of 26 passes for just 171 yards against the Ravens, but was averaging an outrageous 45 attempts in his previous six games, during which time he averaged 371 yards and threw 14 touchdown passes. One game in which he was not required to throw much does not constitute an end to his hot streak.

Week 17 foe Buffalo is playing well enough to hang around and keep Brady throwing. Though the Bills rank fifth in the NFL in passing yards allowed (3,156) and boast a tremendous pass rush, they have given up 27 scores through the air and yielded 288 yards and two touchdowns to Brady in Week 1.

The midseason slump is a distant memory for Brady. He has returned to the status of premier Fantasy quarterback. And though the Bills are coming off a shutout, they don't pose enough of a defensive threat to force Fantasy owners to consider removing Brady from any lineup. Actually, nobody does.
