Knee bothered Brady last season | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Bucs QB Tom Brady admitted that his left knee was an issue throughout last season. "It just took a lot," he said "Every week I was kind of tending to my knee, and I thought I would love to see a season where I can focus on some other strength stuff that I want to do, some other technique stuff where I’m not just focused on protecting my knee all the time." Despite that, Brady threw for 4,633 yards and 40 TDs in his Bucs debut, finishing 7th among QBs in fantasy points. He underwent what he called "pretty serious" knee surgery after the Super Bowl and will resume throwing next week. The knee shouldn't be an issue by the time training camp kicks off, but we'll keep an eye on the soon-to-be 44-year-old.

Bucs QB Tom Brady is participating in this week's minicamp after undergoing knee surgery after the Super Bowl. He admitted last month that the knee bothered him most of last season -- which makes his 4,633-yard, 40-TD campaign even more impressive. We'll keep an eye on Brady when training camp opens, but the knee shouldn't be an issue in 2021.

The Bucs and QB Tom Brady agreed to a 1-year contract extension. He's now signed through the 2022 season -- but the real reason for this move is the $19 million it saves Tampa against the cap this year. Brady remained plenty effective in 2020, chucking for 4,633 yards and 40 TDs and finishing 7th among QBs in fantasy points. It's certainly possible that he plays at least 2 more seasons with the Bucs.

Bucs QB Tom Brady will undergo what HC Bruce Arians described as "clean-up" surgery on his left knee. That's the knee in which Brady tore his ACL back in 2008. He hasn't missed a game due to injury since. We'll keep an eye on Brady's status this offseason, but this shouldn't impact his 2021 campaign.

The NFL has moved this week's Bucs-Raiders game from Sunday at 8:20 pm ET to 4:05 pm ET. The league is clearly concerned about Vegas' COVID outbreak and the possibility that this game needs to be postponed. We'll keep an eye on that. Meanwhile, the Seahawks-Cardinals game has been moved to Sunday night. The only fantasy impact there is that the game will no longer be on the DFS main slate.

Tom Brady has agreed to a contract with the Buccaneers, according to multiple outlets. Tampa Bay has been rumored to be a finalist for a while now and holds the upside of 1 of the league's top WR duos in Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. Brady will also work with longtime NFL coach Bruce Arians. It's tough to say whether Brady impacts the fantasy outlooks for his new receivers, given that we've never seen him outside of New England. Reagardless of QB play, though, it's unlikely that both Evans and Godwin continue to deliver fantasy points at the WR1 level. Brady's arrival officially means we'll see Jameis Winston don a new uniform. His departure from New England also leaves Jarrett Stidham at the top of the current depth chart. We'll see if/how the Patriots choose to address the position further this offseason.
