By Jeff Moore, Patriots Correspondent, Mon, Oct 27th 5:37pm EDT
Patriot's quarterback Tom Brady completed 30-of-35 passes for 354 yards and five touchdowns in the team's Week 8 win over the Bears.
Fantasy Impact: Since the Patriot's Week 4 loss to the Chiefs, Brady has returned to truly elite form. He tore the Bear's less-than-stellar defense, and tossed three TDs to a healthy Rob Gronkowski. He'll be a QB1 for Week 9's showdown with Denver.
By Jeff Moore, Patriots Correspondent, Fri, Oct 17th 6:32pm EDT
Patriot's quarterback Tom Brady completed 20-of-37 passes for 261 yards and three touchdowns in the team's Week 7 win over the Jets.

Patriot's quarterback Tom Brady went 14-of-23 for 159 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the team's Week 4 loss to the Chiefs.
Fantasy Impact: Brady also lost a fumble in the blowout loss. Working behind a shaky offensive line, and with a seriously-lacking receiver core to throw to, Brady is a questionable QB2 prospect for the time being.
By Jeff Moore, Patriots Correspondent, Mon, Sep 22nd 4:03pm EDT
Patriot's quarterback Tom Brady completed 24-of-37 attempts for 234 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 3 game against the Raiders.
Fantasy Impact: While Rob Gronkowski and Danny Amendola both dropped TD passes in the end-zone, the Raider's defense performed well for most of the game.

Patriots QB Tom Brady went 29-of-55 for 249 yards and a TD in the team's Week 1 game against the Dolphins. He also lost two fumbles on the day.
Fantasy Impact: It was a struggle for the QB, especially in the second half, and the offensive line looked horrible. Brady was able to connect with TE Rob Gronkowski for a TD in the second quarter, but until the Patriots get their offensive line under control, Brady will be a low-end QB1.
By Jeff Moore, Patriots Correspondent, Sat, Aug 23rd 2:21am EDT

By Jeff Moore, Patriots Correspondent, Mon, Aug 18th 6:00pm EDT

After failing to throw multiple TDs in each of his first four games, he’s posted a 14:0 TD:INT ratio over his past four contests, getting 8.8 YPA. He sure looks to be “back,” as does Rob Gronkowski, who secured all nine of his targets for 149 yards and three scores. The tight end is now on pace to score 14 TDs...
EDSFootball | Oct 26th

Although he has a pair of six-touchdown games in his career as well as a couple of other five-touchdown games, it w...
