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.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Patriots QB Tom Brady is expected to play against the Cowboys on Sunday, despite being listed as questionable with a right elbow issue. "More managing the elbow and taking care of it than anything," Rapoport adds. It's worth noting that Brady posted an ugly 55.3% completion rate and 4.6 yards per attempt in last week's win over the Eagles. He's no better than a low-end QB1 for Week 12.
Patriots QB Tom Brady was added to the injury report on Friday with a right (throwing) elbow issue. He was limited in practice and is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Cowboys. We haven't heard anything to suggest that this is a real concern, but it's certainly worth keeping an eye on. We'll pass along any updates we get.
The forecast for today's Browns-Patriots game calls for a 100% chance of rain, with heavy rainfall at times possible. The wind will be at just 7-14 mph, so that shouldn't have a major impact. But this will be a wet one. We've made some slight adjustments to our projections for this game.
The forecast for Thursday night's game between the Giants and Patriots calls for rain and wind gusts of 30+ mph. That's enough to impact the passing and kicking games. Hopefully you're not relying on anything in New York's passing game. We nudged QB Tom Brady and WRs Julian Edelman and Josh Gordon down the Week 6 Rankings -- but they all still sit safely inside starter territory in this pristine matchup. Try to avoid both Ks in this game.
Patriots QB Tom Brady played the entire 1st half of Thursday night's preseason game against the Eagles. He finished 19 of 26 for 172 yards and 2 TDs -- 1 to WR Chris Hogan and 1 to RB James White. Brady had been limited in training camp with a back issue but looked no worse for wear in this one. He remains 1 of the top QBs in fantasy football -- and worth a look if he gets into the 7th round of fantasy drafts.
