In his career 207 starts, Brady has a 160-47 record. He has the third-most wins in league history, trailing only Peyton Manning (179) and Brett Favre (186). His .773 winning percentage is the NFL's all-time best. A big part of Tom's 2014 success should be credited to improved pass protection. He was sacked just 21 times last year as opposed to 40 times in 2013. This led to a bounce back in his completion rate (64.1) after he approached his career low in 2013 (60.5 percent). He threw more than 30 TDs for the fifth time in his last seven full seasons. His passing yards total has regressed in each of the past three years. Brady's biggest asset is his ability to minimize mistakes. Last year, he threw fewer than 10 interceptions for the fourth time in his last seven complete seasons. He finished the season as fantasy's No. 9 QB.

When you look at his receiving options, Brady has an obviously huge edge at tight end with Rob Gronkowski, and Julian Edelman is one of the top possession receivers in the league. WR Brandon LaFell is coming off the best season of his five-year career and showed some value in the end zone. A healthy Aaron Dobson would be a nice bonus for New England. Plus, Danny Amendola played his best ball in the playoffs. On the surface, Tom has below-average receiving options out of the backfield, but the Patriots have a long history of winning with less than elite talent at the skill positions. The AFC East is getting a lot tougher on the defensive line, which will force the Patriots to throw the ball more than 600 times in 2015. Although he may be suspended for the season's first four games as punishment for his role in Deflategate, pending an appeal, Tom has a reasonable schedule late in the year when fantasy championships are on the line. The suspension, which may be reduced, could turn Brady into a value draft pick who can buoy your team down the stretch.

Latest Update

Sep-03-15 Patriots QB Tom Brady wins in court, suspension is nullified

New England Patriots quarterback wins his case against Roger Goodell and the NFL. His four-game suspension has been completely nullified by U.S. District Judge Richard Berman. Brady will face no suspension and will be suiting up for the season opener next Thursday. Initial word is he does not even have to pay a fine.

Fantasy Analysis:

Goodell could not look like more of a bumbling, incompetent fool. It's time for him to go. The rest of the league can thank him for firing up Brady and not costing him any time. In the end, justice did prevail, but what an obnoxious route it took to get here. Brady's value obviously now skyrockets. If you've been listening and drafted Brady, as we've continued to suggest, you really got a steal. You could see this coming from a mile away.
