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.


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.

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.

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 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 strikes twice in preseason tuneup


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady found the end zone twice despite sitting out a series Friday night against the Panthers.

Brady worked the first two drives before head coach Bill Belichick pulled him out of the game in favor of Ryan Mallett with 5:33 remaining in the first quarter. The move was part of an experiment for Belichick, who wanted his backups to be prepared for emergency situations throughout the season.

Through two series he compiled 24 yards through the air while completing 4 of 6 passes. Mallett worked only one series with the first unit. Brady returned and found Shane Vereen on a wheel route for a 40-yard touchdown in the second quarter. He hooked up again with Vereen for a 6-yard strike early in the third.

Brady played into the third quarter and finished with 204 yards through the air while completing 17 of 21 passes. He added two touchdowns and no interceptions, registering a 138.9 passer rating.

Jimmy Garoppolo leaps over Ryan Mallett in second preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo leaped over Ryan Mallett in the depth chart and was used as the first backup during Friday's preseason game against the Eagles.

Garoppolo entered the game for Tom Brady on the third drive of the game and fired a 15-yard touchdown pass to James Develin. On the ensuing drive, he hooked up with Brandon LaFell for a 4-yard touchdown strike in the second quarter. He completed 6 of 12 pass attempts for 72 yards, with two touchdowns and no interceptions. He finished with a 108.3 quarterback rating.

Mallett started the third quarter in place of Garoppolo and scored on a 6-yard run in his first drive. He then fired a 17-yard touchdown to Brian Tyms, who leaped over the defender to make the grab. He completed 7 of 11 pass attempts for 92 yards, with one touchdown and no interceptions. He was sacked once and had four rushes for 9 yards.

Tom Brady picked off once, throws TD in first preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady finally got his first taste of preseason action Friday night at home against Philadelphia.

Brady was sharp early on until he was intercepted by Cary Williams for a touchdown on the opening drive of the game. He bounced back with a 15-yard back-shoulder pass to Kenbrell Thompkins in the end zone. He worked two series with the first-team offense and completed 8 of 10 pass attempts for 81 yards, with one touchdown and one interception.


Ryan Mallett sits out again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) Patriots backup quarterback Ryan Mallett missed practice for the second straight day Monday with what is believed to be a knee injury, reports the Boston Herald.

Ryan Mallett disappoints in potential trade showcase


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Thursday night's preseason opener against the Redskins reportedly was meant as a trade showcase for Ryan Mallett, the Patriots' fourth-year quarterback. Mallett didn't stir up much interest.

He played the entire first half, going 5 for 12 for 55 yards and leading New England to zero points. Mallett's highly inaccurate performance means he might not enter the season as Tom Brady's backup. Rookie Jimmy Garoppolo is pushing for the No. 2 job.


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.
