Fantasy Analysis
Week 12 Projections
Temper your expectations this week as New England heads to Denver. It's not like you are going to sit him this week, but he is facing Denver's top ranked passing defense, with a makeshift offensive line and limited options left at the wide receiver position.
Passsing: 263 Yards, 2 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 3 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
As of press time, the NFL has suspended Brady for the first four games of the season due to his involvement and lack of cooperation in the Deflate-Gate saga. While Patriots' backup QB Jimmy Garoppolo seems like a likely replacement, the Patriots do have a bye in Week 4, so if you decide to go that direction, you'll need to roster a third quarterback to cover that game. Our current ranking of Brady (which already accounts for him missing 4 games) will scare off some owners creating a buy-low situation on one of the best quarterbacks in the game. Should Brady's suspension be reduced, adjust him upward in your rankings accordingly.

New England Patriots Team Talk
Another 16-0 season a possibility?
I'm just not sure who left on the Patriots schedule will be favored to win. Dallas had been a threat, but Romo and Dez are injured. Colts aren't a threat to any playoff team it seems. Denver is always a threat and their defense is amazing, but ...
New Tom Brady Thread
Since someone decided (without explaining why) to lock the other Tom Brady thread, I guess we will start up another one while we wait for Judge Berman to rule....
So when the hell is Deflategate gonna be wrapped up?
This is ludicrous. All this time and high-powered expensive lawyers and nothing yet? C'mon. Me thinks if it was any team but the Pats it would have been resolved many moons ago. They're either trying really really really hard to find absolutely ...
What will Belichick's excuse be for running up the score?
Up 38-0 and you come out in the shotgun throwing deep fades to Moss. Brady must be on his fantasy team...
This place is pretty dead. Allow me to liven it up with some random photos. [img:iinc1r7r]http://i.imgur.com/ymLH769.jpg[/img:iinc1r7r] Jules looking good. Happy Birthday. This pic on twitter from a few days ago is hilarious ...

Draft Analysis
Round 1, Pick 11
Top player on a great team. Brady has proven to be top of the list of QB at last. I think he will have another year with over the top stats.
Very minor concern over injury risk.
Draft Strategy
I hate to take a QB this early but drafting # 11 I he was the top player on my board. I figured he would get me more than any of the backs and receivers on the board. (Contributed by: GUESS_WHOM)

Round 2, Pick 6
What's not to like about Tom Brady? He makes all the players around him better. He scores TDs and he wins games.
Brady has stayed very healthy in his career. But the one concern I have is the health of his offensive line. If he is on the ground, he can't throw the ball down the field.
Draft Strategy
I almost took Brady with my 1st round pick, so when he was still there in the 2nd I had to take him. I will be scoring a lot of points when Brady throws 4 TDs, 2 of them to Moss. I expect my squad to be unstoppable expect in week 4 when Brady/Moss are on bye. (Contributed by: Greg_Allen)
