Shark Bites

A federal appeals court ruled on Monday that Patriots QB Tom Brady must serve the 4-game suspension for his role in "Deflategate."  Brady won his appeal of the suspension last fall and played all 16 games.  He does have the option of appealing this decision to the Supreme Court, although that's viewed as unlikely.  Brady and the league could also agree on a reduced ban.  But for now, he'll miss the first 4 contests of the 2016 season.  QB Jimmy Garoppolo will start those games against the Cardinals, Dolphins, Texans and Bills.  Those matchups make him tough to like as a fantasy option, especially with no teams on bye for the first 3 weeks.  Brady's suspension also hurts WR Julian Edelman and TE Rob Gronkowski's early-season outlooks.

Bucs QB Tom Brady finished Week 3 with 271 yards and 1 TD on 31 of 42 passing. Playing without Chris Godwin (hamstring), Mike Evans (suspension) or Julio Jones (knee), Brady watched WRs Breshad Perriman and Russell Gage lose fumbles. Gage did score the team’s lone TD late in the 4th, but the 2-point conversion — to send the game into OT — was unsuccessful. Considering the WR injuries and the banged up O-line, Brady’s performance was actually encouraging. Evans will return for Week 4 (vs. Kansas City) but Jones and Godwin remain uncertain.

Bucs QB Tom Brady has a "banged-up" right ring finger, HC Todd Bowles said Friday. “He’s ready to go,'' Bowles added. "He’s full practice. He took every throw." This doesn't sound like a big deal, but it's not what Brady needs considering all the WR and offensive line injuries he's dealing with. Brady is not a top 12 QB option this week.

Buccaneers QB Tom Brady didn't have a terrible outing in Sunday's loss to the Saints, but he also didn't particularly help your fantasy team. With Chris Godwin and Julio Jones out, Brady completed just 18 of his 34 passes for 190 yards (5.6 yards per attempt) and 1 TD. He found WR Breshad Perriman for the 28-yard score. Brady took just 1 sack and threw no INTs, but he did lose a fumble. We'll see if he gets any pass-catchers back for the Week 3 meeting with Green Bay. He's not likely to have Mike Evans, however, thanks to his suspension for fighting Sunday. Don't be surprised if Brady lands outside our top 12 for Week 3.

Bucs QB Tom Brady will get Wednesdays off all season, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Brady, of course, left the team for about a week and a half in August, reportedly to take a vacation with his family. The missed practice time is unlikely to make a difference on game days, but we'll keep an eye on the situation.

A source close to Bucs QB Tom Brady tells NFL Network's Ian Rapoport that this is expected to be Brady's final season. Brady has said multiple times that he'd play until he was 45 -- and he turned 45 earlier this month. It's also worth noting that Brady isn't under contract for 2023, which Rapoport calls "noteworthy," and has a broadcasting deal waiting from FOX Sports. Of course, Brady has changed his mind on retirement before, so this certainly isn't set in stone. But dynasty owners should be making other plans for 2023 and beyond.
