2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Patriots spent a second round pick on Jimmy Garoppolo from Eastern Illinois in 2014 and that pick may pay dividends during Brady’s suspension if he can keep them afloat during the first month of the season. Unfortunately for him, the team opens the season facing some of the league’s better defenses - Arizona, Miami, Houston and Buffalo. Garoppolo has no significant regular season experience but will be spending his third offseason with the team and will likely split reps with Brady during training camp, so he should be prepared. He also gets the same benefit of the weapons that Tom Brady will be supported by which should help him overcome his inexperience. The offensive philosophy shouldn’t change much, if at all, and Garoppolo has the athleticism and quick release to be successful in that system. If you draft Brady, adding Garoppolo in later rounds wouldn’t be a terrible idea, although you may want to also add another capable backup and play the matchups.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Patriots list Jimmy Garappolo as doubtful
Jacoby Brissett likely to start
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Sep 21, 6:20 pm

New England Patriots
The New England Patriots listed starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo on their Wednesday injury report as doubtful for their Thursday Night Football game against the Houston Texans. Garoppolo sprained the AC joint in his shoulder during the Pats' Week 2 win over the Miami Dolphins. In Garoppolo's likely absence, third-round rookie Jacoby Brissett will get the start. (

FFToday's Take: This was to be expected even though New England continues to leave the door open by not ruling Jimmy Garappolo out. New England will likely roll with Jacoby Brissett making his first career start in a shortened week against a premier defensive unit. This might be the week to keep your Patriots on the bench and wait for reinforcements coming off extended rest in Week 4.

Injury Jimmy Garoppolo could still start Thursday night
Patriots not ruling out talented backup taking field vs. Texans

Ed Werder (@Edwerderespn) on Twitter: "#Patriots still believe there's a chance Jimmy Garoppolo can tolerate pain of AC joint sprain and start vs #Texans" (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It's hard to believe that the Patriots would trust a lame Garoppolo to somehow evade J.J. Watt and be more effective than Jacoby Brissett, but I guess anything's possible when it comes to Bill Belichick and his evil genius. Neither Garoppolo nor Brissett makes a quality fantasy starter in Week 3.

Injury Garoppolo out Week 3, could return Week 4

Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo (sprained AC joint) won’t start Thursday vs. Texans. But there is hope he’s back by Week 4. Huge break for NE (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Jacoby Brissett filled in for Garoppolo on Sunday and could get the start against the Texans on Thursday. Brissett went 6-9 for 92 yards against the Dolphins. Expect the Patriots to add a quarterback to the roster in the next day or two.

Injury Rob Gronkowski out Week 1
Didn't make the trip to Arizona
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 9, 8:00 pm

New England Patriots
The Patriots announced Friday that tight end Rob Gronkowski will not play Sunday night, along with offensive linemen Jonathan Cooper and Nate Solder. Gronk was limited in practice all week after injuring his hamstring a fortnight ago. (

FFToday's Take: Gronk's pre-season hamstring injury is going to cost him at least Week 1. His absence means TE Martellus Bennett should see a slight increase in usage along with WR Julian Edelman. Jimmy Garoppolo will have his hands full with the Arizona defense on the road and without his best receiving threat.

Brady gives up legal fight, will serve suspension
DeflateGate comes to and end

Tom Brady announced he is no longer proceeding with legal process vs NFL. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: DeflateGate has come to an end. Brady will miss the first four games of the season and be eligible to return Week 5 against the Browns. Jimmy Garoppolo will face Arizona, Miami, Houston and Buffalo to begin the season. He remains a QB2 for drafting purposes. For the most part, Brady's suspension is already reflected in his QB7, 6th-round ADP although he could slide a couple more spots in the coming weeks.

Brady's Deflategate appeal denied
Next step: appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Jul 13, 12:30 pm

New England Patriots
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's latest attempt to avoid serving a four-game Deflategate suspension to start the new season was flatly rejected Wednesday by an appeals court. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan issued a one-sentence rejection of requests by the National Football League Players Association and Brady to reconsider an April decision that found that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell acted within his powers by suspending the star quarterback for his role in a scheme to doctor footballs used in a January 2015 playoff game. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Brady's last gasp is to appeal to the Supreme Court although no decision to take that step has been made. Let's hope it doesn't come to that. Brady remains suspended the first four games of the season. Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to start in Brady's absence.
