Tom Brady Fantasy Football News 2018

Josh McDaniels will not accept the Colts' HC job and instead stay on as the Patriots' OC, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The decision obviously blindsided the Colts, who announced the hiring of McDaniels earlier today and had a press conference scheduled for tomorrow. Per Schefter, the Pats "sweetened" McDaniels' contract -- but McDaniels also had reservations about moving his family from New England. The decision is sure to fuel speculation that HC Bill Belichick is about to step down, but Schefter is adamant that that's not the case. McDaniels' return as OC is good news for QB Tom Brady and the rest of the Pats offense. We'll see who the Colts hire as Plan B.

Patriots QB Tom Brady (right hand) put in a limited workout Thursday, when New England had it's 1st practice ahead of the Super Bowl. The QB also had his stitches out this week and seemed to have no trouble getting through the conference-championship win over the Jaguars. There should be no reason for injury concern here.

Patriots QB Tom Brady (hand) is active for today's game against the Jaguars. Multiple reports had him throwing the ball well in Friday's practice, so use Brady as you normally would in fantasy football lineups today.

Patriots QB Tom Brady (hand) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday’s AFC Championship against the Jaguars. He returned to a limited practice on Friday, although it’s entirely unclear how much he did. Brady was allowed to speak to the media afterward but stopped short of guaranteeing that he’ll play this weekend. Of course, the Pats haven’t told us anything about the injury. Brady was reportedly injured in a collision with a teammate during Wednesday’s practice. NBC Sports Boston’s Mike Felger hears that Brady received 4 stitches for a cut around 1 of his knuckles. We’d be shocked if he didn’t start Sunday’s game, but how big an issue the injury will be is anyone’s guess.

Patriots QB Tom Brady (thumb) didn't practice on Thursday, according to the team's official injury report. He was spotted on the field for warmups with a glove on that injured throwing hand. We don't know much more about the injury at this point, but we'd be shocked if Brady didn't play against the Jaguars this weekend. Check back tomorrow for another update.

The Boston Herald's Karen Guregian reports that Patriots QB Tom Brady "jammed" his throwing hand when he ran into a teammate during Wednesday's practice. X-rays on the hand revealed no structural damage, per Guregian. Colleague Jeff Howe hears that Brady will play against the Jaguars on Sunday, "barring an unexpected setback." We'll continue to keep a close eye on this one.

Patriots QB Tom Brady was listed as limited in Wednesday's practice with a right (throwing) hand injury. He didn't meet with the media afterward because he was with the team's medical staff. It's possible that he was injured during practice today. We'll look for further updates.

Patriots QB Tom Brady (Achilles) was limited in practice this week but isn’t listed on the final injury report. There’s never been any concern about the Achilles issue. Brady is safe to fire up as an elite QB1 against the Dolphins on Sunday.

Patriots QB Tom Brady (Achilles) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. There's been no indication that the Achilles issue is anything to worry about. Brady remains an elite QB1 for this weekend's pristine matchup against Miami.

Patriots QB Tom Brady did not practice on Wednesday with an Achilles injury. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Brady is "fine." There's no reason to worry about his Week 12 status at this point, but we'll continue to keep a close eye on the situation.

It looks like the rain will stay away for most of today's Chargers-Patriots game. Winds of 16-17 mph are expected, though, with occasional gusts over 40. That could impact deep passes and kicks. We're not adjusting projections for this game, but keep the weather in mind if deciding between 2 similarly ranked players.

Patriots QB Tom Brady (shoulder) is not listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He didn’t practice Wednesday, was limited Thursday but then put in a full workout Friday. The injury is to his non-throwing shoulder, and there’s been nothing to suggest that it’ll be an issue on Sunday vs. the Jets. Brady remains an elite QB1.

Patriots QB Tom Brady (shoulder) will "definitely" play against the Jets on Sunday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Brady officially didn't practice on Wednesday but was spotted on the field in the early portion of the workout open to the media. Per Rapoport, Brady is dealing with a sprained AC joint to the non-throwing shoulder. It adds some risk to his Week 6 outlook, but he remains a must-start in season-long leagues.

Patriots QB Tom Brady was on the practice field on Wednesday. He's dealing with a minor injury to his non-throwing shoulder but doesn't appear to be in any danger of missing this weekend's game against the Jets. Brady is our #1 ranked QB for Week 6.

Patriots QB Tom Brady is dealing with an injury to his left shoulder. (That's his non-throwing side.) According to NBC Sports' Mike Giardi, Brady originally suffered the injury in Week 4 against Carolina and aggravated it last Thursday night vs. Tampa Bay. An MRI on the shoulder came back clean. Brady didn't practice on Tuesday but is fully expected to play this weekend against the Jets. We'll keep an eye on his status throughout the week. Brady has already taken 16 sacks this year -- 1 more than all last season.

Patriots QB Tom Brady was pulled late in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Jets with the score 34-0. He finished the day 17 of 27 for 214 yards, 3 TDs and 0 INTs. Fantasy owners certainly can't complain about that line -- although getting the 4th quarter would have been nice.

The forecast for today's Jets-Patriots game calls for a 95% chance of rain with winds around 10 mph. That wind isn't a major concern, but it looks like this will be a sloppy game. We still don't expect the Pats to have any trouble when they take to the air, but the weather could push them further toward the run if (when?) they get out to a big lead.

Patriots QB Tom Brady (knee) is active for today’s game against the Jets. Even at less than 100%, he’s an elite fantasy play in the plus matchup.

Patriots QB Tom Brady (knee) will play against the Jets today, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms. Brady only practiced on Friday, but there was never much concern about his status. He's a high-end QB1 in today's plus matchup.

Patriots QB Tom Brady (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Jets. He sat out the first 2 practices of the week before returning to a limited workout on Friday. It looks like Brady is legitimately at less than 100%, but we’ve seen nothing to suggest that he won’t play on Sunday. He’s fine to keep penciled into fantasy lineups for now.
