Shark Bites

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Bucs QB Tom Brady (thumb) "should play" vs. the Eagles on Thursday night. "There's no serious injury at all," Brady said. "It's more of a discomfort." Any injury to a QB's throwing hand is worth monitoring. But at this point, we haven't heard anything to suggest that Brady needs to be benched in fantasy this week.

Bucs QB Tom Brady (thumb) put in a full practice on Wednesday and isn't listed on the final injury report for Thursday night's game vs. the Eagles. It's impossible to know exactly how big an issue that throwing thumb will be, but everything we've read and heard suggests that we shouldn't alter our fantasy outlook for Brady much, if at all.

Bucs QB Tom Brady hurt his right thumb during Sunday's win over the Dolphins. He didn't miss any snaps in that game and is expected to be fine for Thursday night's game vs. the Eagles, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. This is certainly a situation worth monitoring, but it sounds like Brady can be penciled into Week 6 fantasy lineups for now.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Bucs QB Tom Brady played last season with a torn MCL. He underwent surgery in February and isn’t in danger of missing time, but it’s certainly a noteworthy piece of news on the 44-year-old (in August). Brady’s ADP is currently inside QB1 range.

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.

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.
