Fantasy Update

Jul 28, 2014
Aaron Rodgers. Drew Brees. Peyton Manning. Tom Brady. Geno Smith? Smith was asked Saturday for his opinion about a recent ESPN survey that ranked him as the worst QB in the NFL, No. 32. He isn't worried about it and expects a much more desired ranking after this season. "The thing about it is, you have to climb up," Smith said. "If I'm No. 32, by this time next year or the year after, I expect to be in the top five." FANTASY ANALYSIS: Let's be overly optimistic about this. A lot of rookie quarterbacks struggle. As mentioned in the source article, Manning threw 28 interceptions as a rook....

Jul 23, 2014
Patriots.com writer John Rooke suggests Tom Brady doesn't have to be an offensive playmaking leader, but that to be effective he just has to manage the game writing, "It is over-simplifying things, but literally all Brady needs to do...to still be terrific...is get the ball in the hands of the playmakers at the right time. Should the offensive line regain some similar form from a few seasons ago and give Brady the time, this offense can be as dynamic and as dangerous as you find in the NFL this season." Rooke goes on to say the offense will be in prime shape if Ridley can hold on to the ball,...

Video: Tom Brady joined ESPN SportsCenter to talk about training camp

Patriots camp report: Day 2

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- A daily review of hot topics coming out of the New England Patriots training camp: Tight end Rob Gronkowski confirmed the obvious -- while he might have been cleared to play from a medical perspective, he's still not 100 percent and is being managed from a football standpoint. That's why he's only taking part in individual drills at this point, while also putting in some extra time after practice with quarterback Tom Brady.

Much has been made about how long Tom Brady has left as quarterback of the Patriots, and it was a topic two old friends joked about Friday on the set of SportsCenter at Patriots training camp. Longtime Patriot and current ESPN analyst Tedy Bruschi said he thought Brady, who turns 37 on Sunday and is signed through 2017 (when he will be 40), could play until he was 41. Here’s the fun back and forth that played out on the air: Bruschi: “I’m giving him four [more seasons].

Grading Tom Brady: Strengths and Weaknesses

Tom Brady is under the microscope- what can we learn about him from last season's performance? ESPN and Pro Football Focus combined to start the off-season storyline of Tom Brady's decline. Their primary focus was on how he adjusted and handled pressure and how his ability to handle pressure has disappeared over the past few seasons. Pro Football Focus now, on their own, has been running through their numbers and have self-published some facts regarding Brady's 2013 season- and there's plenty of positives to take away. Some highlights: Brady was best in the league on second down and...

It’s Rob Gronkowski time

FOXBORO — A few minutes into the opening practice of training camp, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady finally got his first chance to drop back and throw to tight end Rob Gronkowski, who lined up to the left and ran a post route in a simple one-receiver pattern.No defense. No stress. And, somehow, no connection. Brady’s bid sailed through the end zone.Hey, they had to get the first one out of the way, and the Patriots certainly know a limited Gronk is always better than no Gronk at all.

Borges: Tom Brady’s in no rush to give job to Jimmy Garoppolo

FOXBORO — Yesterday Tom Brady told the man who has come to take his job to take away his sweat-stained shoulder pads. After 14 years in the NFL, that is how life is for the finest quarterback of his time.For Brady, every day is a dogfight.

Hot Take of the Day: Kenbrell Thompkins is a Superstar

Hot Take of the Day: Kenbrell Thompkins is a Superstar

Let's start revving the engine! The Patriots will field a group of world-beaters at wide receiver! Kenbrell Thompkins comes with the tragic redemption arc- busted for robbery charges and seven arrests in three years prior to his high school graduation- and the chips on his shoulder are probably larger and crispier than those on Tom Brady's. Last season he won over the hearts of New Englanders everywhere. He turned heads with his route running. His speed. His ability to fight for the ball. His "clutchness". Thompkins' life changed when his younger brother received a scholarship to the...
