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.
