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.


Report: Patriots want 2nd rounder for Ryan Mallett


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2014) With Patriots quarterback Ryan Mallett entering the last year of his rookie deal, it's possible he gets traded, reports NESN.com. New England wants a second-round pick in return, according to NFL Network.

That seems very steep for a guy who's struggled in preseason action and thrown four regular-season passes in his career.


Players poll: Tom Brady best clutch quarterback in NFL


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.

Brady tallied 128 votes to easily beat Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, who was followed in the voting by Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay), Drew Brees (New Orleans) and Ben Roethlisberger (Pittsburgh).


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.


Report: Brady hurt throwing hand in October


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady suffered ligament damage in his throwing hand in October and "had to fight through it," reports NFL Network, adding that the injury has healed. NESN said the report explains "what was causing the signal-caller's hand to swell."

In four October games, Brady threw two touchdowns against four interceptions and twice completed fewer than 50 percent of his throws.


Tom Brady dismisses illness, missed Wednesday session


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady dismissed the effects of the illness that excused him from Wednesday practice.

He described it as "nothing at all," per the NFL Network. He added: "I played a lot of football all season, it was good to get back out there today."

Brady returned to practice Thursday in preparation for the Sunday clash at Denver for the AFC title.


Tom Brady back on practice field


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has overcome an illness that sidelined him in Wednesday and returned to practice on Thursday. The Patriots had perfect attendance as they prepared to play Sunday at Denver for the AFC championship.

Illness kept Tom Brady out of practice


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady missed Wednesday's practice because he's sick, reports NFL Network. Coach Bill Belichick would not reveal why Brady was absent.

Bill Belichick refuses to reveal reason for Tom Brady absence


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2014) Bill Belichick has declined to reveal why Patriots quarterback Tom Brady did not practice on Wednesday. He added that he would not go through individual injuries or ailments.

"I know we'd love that, but we're not doing it," he said, per Comcast SportsNew New England.

A source told NFL.com that Brady is merely sick.


Tom Brady not participating at start of Wednesday session


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (shoulder) was unseen as his team began its Wednesday practice session. There has been no indication that his availability for the Sunday AFC title game in Denver is threatened, but his weekly press conference was curiously moved from Wednesday to Friday.

Tom Brady does little in blowout win over Colts


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/11/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady became the first player to reach 6,000 postseason passing yards during Saturday's AFC Divisional Playoff game against the Colts.

Brady wasn't asked to do much as the ground game produced six touchdowns for New England. He completed 13 of 25 passes for 198 yards, with no touchdowns and no interceptions in a 43-22 victory.

Nine Patriots probable for clash with Colts


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/10/2014) Nine Patriots are listed as probable for the Sunday clash against visiting Indianapolis.

The offensive players on that list are wide receiver Danny Amendola (groin), quarterback Tom Brady (shoulder), running back Shane Vereen (groin) and offensive linemen Logan Mankins and Will Svitek, both with ankle injuries.

The defensive probables are cornerback Kyle Arrington (groin), linebacker Dane Fletcher (groin), safeties Devin McCourty (concussion) and Steve Gregory (finger/knee).


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


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) A right shoulder ailment will again not keep Patriots quarterback Tom Brady from suiting up Sunday. He had been listed as probable for the game against the Bills.

Handful of Patriots probable for AFC East battle


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) Premier players such as quarterback Tom Brady (shoulder), wide receiver Danny Amendola (groin) and cornerback Aqib Talib (hip) have been listed as probable by the Patriots for their Week 17 game against Buffalo.

The other probables are tackle Marcus Cannon (ankle) and tight end Michael Hoomanawanui (knee).


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.


Tom Brady has fourth game with under 200 yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) New England's running game had its way with the Ravens, so Patriots quarterback Tom Brady threw only 26 times, his second fewest attempts all season. Brady completed 14 throws for 172 yards and a touchdown. It was the fourth time this season he posted fewer than 200 yards.

Brady hit running back Shane Vereen for a 4-yard touchdown in the first quarter, giving Brady 24 passing scores. He failed to throw multiple touchdowns for the first time since Week 11, and his completion percentage (53.8) was his lowest of 2013.

Brady concludes the regular season vs. Buffalo.


Patriots designate seven as probable for Sunday battle


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2013) Quarterback Tom Brady (shoulder), wideout Danny Amendola (groin) and cornerback Aqib Talib (hip) head a list of seven probables for the Patriots heading into their game against Baltimore on Sunday.

The others are offensive linemen Marcus Cannon and Will Svitek with ankle injuries, tight end Michael Hoomanawanui (knee) and safety Steve Gregory (finger).


Tom Brady hoping to overcome late-game interception


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2013) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who threw a late-game interception his last time out, will look to bounce back in a difficult road matchup against the Ravens in Week 16.

Despite falling short of a come-from-behind win, Brady still managed to pass for 364 yards and two touchdowns in Week 15 against Miami. He has thrown for at least 344 yards and two touchdowns in each of his last four games.

Unfortunately for Brady, he'll be facing a Baltimore defense that allowed 235 yards, including one touchdown and three interceptions to Matthew Stafford in Week 15. The Ravens have not allowed a quarterback to throw for more than 275 yards over the last eight games. Opposing quarterbacks have averaged only 16.57 Fantasy points per game this season.

Brady is in the midst of his best stretch of games this season, so it may be foolish to keep him on your bench. Consider him a solid starting option in most formats for Week 16.

Late pick mars strong Tom Brady performance


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady nearly earned another come-from-behind win Sunday, but came up just short in a 24-20 loss to the Dolphins in Week 15.

Down four following a Dolphins go-ahead score, Brady took over with 1:15 left on the clock in the fourth quarter. He completed five of his first seven passes on the drive, to get the Patriots into the red zone, but the drive stalled out from there. His next four passes fell incomplete, before he threw a game-ending interception in the end zone with one second left on the clock.

Brady still finished with a very strong stat line, completing 34 of 55 passes for 364 yards. He added a pair of touchdowns, one to Michael Hoomanawanui and one to Julian Edelman.

After a slow start to the season, Brady has come on strong recently. He has multiple touchdowns in each of his last four games, while passing for 1,497 yards and only three interceptions in that span. He will try to keep his strong play up in Week 16, when the Patriots travel to Baltimore.  


Shoulder still not keeping Tom Brady out


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (shoulder) is active for Week 15 against the Dolphins, as expected. He got through practice and was probable for Sunday's game, so this doesn't come as a surprise. 

Tom Brady passes for 323 yards and two scores in second half


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Another awful start for Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his offense seemed destined to result in an awful finish until he rescued them Sunday against Cleveland.

Brady was just 1 of 6 for 5 yards and an interception in the first quarter and managed just 95 yards passing in the first half. New England was blanked before intermission and has scored just 10 point in first halves in the last four games combined.

But Brady loosened up the Browns defense with short throws in the third quarter before racking up big chunks on longer passes. He played hero again with a 2-yard touchdown pass to Julian Edelman with 1:04 left in the game and, after his team recovered an onside kick, a 1-yard game-winner to Danny Amendola.

Brady finished 32 of 52 for 418 yards - including 323 in the second half - two touchdowns and a pick despite losing tight end Rob Gronkowski to a knee injury in the third quarter. He will try to maintain the momentum next Sunday at Miami.


Tom Brady gets expected green light for game against Browns


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) As expected, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is set to play as his team hosts Cleveland on Sunday. He had been listed as proabale with a shoulder ailment.
