The four-game suspension delivered to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady surely affects his fantasy standing for this coming season, but not as much as one might expect. After all, Brady finished the 2014 season as the No. 8 quarterback for standard fantasy scoring, and he supplied nearly all of that from the fifth game on.
You remember, right? Brady and his buddies were waxed on Monday Night Football by the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 4, his four-game average for passing yards was a measly 197 and his fantasy value was pronounced pretty much toast. Then from Week 5 on, Brady outscored Drew Brees and supplied one fewer fantasy point than the awesome Andrew Luck.
Eric Karabell says not to worry too much about the fantasy value of Tom Brady or other Patriots despite the recent suspension.
