Starting September 3rd and through Tom Brady's four-game suspension, the QB will no longer be able to appear at the Patriots' Gillette Stadium or attend road games. He also will not be allowed to watch or participate in practice, or exchange any game-plan related conversations with Patriots' players or personnel until his suspension is over. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: While Brady will surely be a relevant fantasy QB in 2016, his restrictions for the first four weeks of the season will likely leave him rusty in his first start or two. Brady is still a great value at his current ADP, although it is advised to draft a second QB that can be trusted to fill in for longer than just four games.

If you're willing to wait until Week 5 for Tom Brady, Ken Daube lists five QBs you can target in fantasy drafts to pair with him.

Tom Brady is a really nice gamble for the owner who wants to wait a bit longer for a QB1. He may be ranked down here, but for the 12 weeks he actually plays he's my 6th overall QB.

The 4 game ban kills his 16-game appeal, but you won't mind reaching for Brady when it's all said and done. He's a weekly top-5 passer.

Do you want to win a fantasy championship? Well then don't hesitate to draft a top three quarterback in round eight. Yes, he is missing the first four games, but if you are worth your salt as a head coach, you can start Garrappolo during the suspension and still sneak into the playoffs, and when those playoffs do roll around, you have a tremendous value for a player who is expected to score 19 points per week.

It's hard to know what a 4-game suspension will do to Brady's value, but last year Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger missed 4 games and was the 20th ranked fantasy quarterback. I think that is a fair starting point for Brady, I will move him up if the 2nd circuit decides to have an en banc hearing and his suspension is stayed pending the appeal.

Brady started last season with a healthy contingent of receivers, running backs and lineman, and of course, attrition sniped many, like every team, but it was severe for the Patriots' offense. Julian Edelman, Nate Solder, Dion Lewis, Danny Amendola and Brandon LaFell stick out to me as major contributors whose loss pushed Brady's numbers down as the season went on. But at peak efficiency, Brady held Cam Newton off for most of the season as the No. 1 fantasy quarterback, averaging a crazy 26 fantasy points through the first seven games and 23 through 14 games before two extremely down games in the final two weeks, while the Patriots played conservatively and tried to keep Brady alive by running more.

This season, I expect more of the same from Brady. The Patriots most likely won't have a running back they can lean on, but Dion Lewis should be back to help in the receiving game. Brady doesn't seem to be slowing down with age, so there shouldn't be too much holding him back in New England's dynamic, up-tempo offense.

Brady currently is suspended for the first four games of the season. When he returns I expect him to play Top-5 fantasy football, so grabbing a filler for those first four games late, along with Brady makes for a good plan.

Suspended for the first 4 games of the season due to deflategate. Fantasy Football league managers need to devise a strategy if they want to own Brady this season and have him for the playoff run. Options such as Tony Romo, Eli Manning, or Kirk Cousins would be likely choices as they have favorable scheduled for the first 4 games of the season. Don't wait too late on Brady as it may compound the issue of not only missing out on drafting Tom Brady, but also having to go with an inferior starting quarterback for the entire season.
