U.S. District Court Judge Richard M. Berman announced Monday Tom Brady and the NFL will not settle the case. He he will announce a ruling as early as Tuesday and no later than Friday. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: As expected, neither sides backed down and we'll have to wait a bit longer to find out whether the suspension will be upheld. Regardless of the judge's ruling, it's likely the losing side will appeal the decision which could drag this out to even the 2016 season before it has real impact on Brady's suspension.


Tom Brady completed 7-of-13 pass attempts for 84 yards, with a touchdown and pair of interceptions in Friday's preseason game at Carolina. Brady played the entire first half, and struggled for most of it, until he led a nice touchdown drive right before halftime, capped by an 18-yard score to Scott Chandler.

Fantasy Impact: Up until the final drive of the first half, Tom Brady looked out of sync for most of the game. He was not on the same page as his receivers. But when the pressure was on at the end of the half two minute drill, Brady looked sharp and drove the team down for a touch down. The biggest question this preseason continues to be whether or not Brady will be suspended for the first four games of the season. If you are drafting this weekend it would be a good idea to plan like he will be out for the suspension and draft accordingly.

If he doesn't miss games, he will jump to Tier 3 with Romo, Ben, Cam, and Matty Ice.

The 4 game ban looks like it will stand, so Brady obviously loses a good amount of season long value.

At this point I am ranking him as if he will get his suspension reduced to a game or two. The Patriots offense continues to be a top producer as demonstrated by their their 6th most plays and league leading 39 touchdowns from inside the red zone.

A reduced four game ban seems unlikely with Roger Goodell overseeing his appeal.

The suspension is the biggest part of this, but I don't like losing Shane Vereen either. A healthy Gronk always equals a better Tom Brady, just look at the splits. If you take Brady you will have to take another QB pretty soon after. Makes it tough. If reduced he moves up to tier 3.

Brady was the 8th ranked fantasy quarterback last year. Brady turns 38-years old this year, but is still relatively healthy for his age and should be able to put up big numbers again in 2015. He has been suspended 4 games for his role in Ballghazi, but I have not adjusted his ranking yet as I believe that suspension will be delayed by lawsuit in federal court. However, it will be a cloud hanging over his fantasy value all season, so draft accordingly.

My thoughts are that the 4 game suspension for "Deflategate" will be reduced from 4 games to 2 games. I have changed my ranking for Tom Brady based on a 2 game suspension.

The legal battle between Brady and the NFL is going to cause his stock to go a tad lower. I would definitely wait and snatch him up if you don't get one of the top 5.

Suspended 4 weeks. If he falls to very late rounds due to suspension he becomes the best back-up QB in fantasy. Even with the four game suspension one can expect nearly 4,000 yards and nearly 30 TDs.

Amen. I just noticed this, but even though he's really injured, Niles Paul seems like he's looking at my "Amen" right there in total agreement. Actually, probably not. I'm probably just drunk. Or if you're an atheist like me, no men. Or maybe that's being sexist. Honestly, who cares. With an offseason full of deflated balls and, well, actually, come to think of it, that's all I can really rememb...
