Brady Wins Appeal, Enters Top 10 For Fantasy QBs

We have breaking news in regards to Tom Brady and Deflategate. Judge Richard Berman has nullified the NFL's four game suspension. Berman overruled the NFL and Brady has succesfuly won his appeal.Tom Brady will play Week 1 vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers.



Fantasy Spin:

This is obviously MAJOR news considering all national sports media has talked about for the last six months was Deflategate and PSI and Roger Good vs. the Patriots etc.

But it's also MAJOR news for Fantasy Football. For starters we moved Brady WAY up from 18 on our rankings to the 7th QB.  Anyone who invested a late round pick in Brady thinking he was going to serve a 4-game suspension got an ABSOLUTE STEAL.

Rob Gronkowski is now solidified as a Top 12 overall pick. Julian Edelman becomes a Top 20 WR in PPR formats. The entire Patriots offense gets a big bump just knowing that Brady will be under center from the start of the season. 

The Patriots and Steelers kick-off the 2015 NFL season next Thursday, one week from today.

Bills Unsure Of McCoy's Status For Week 1

The Buffalo Bills are unsure of running back, LeSean McCoy's, status for their Week 1 match-up vs. the Colts. McCoy is dealing with a hamstring injury he suffered two weeks ago in training camp.



Fantasy Spin:

McCoy is going to be the Bills' bellcow so we wouldn't be surprised is they decide to wait until he's 100% healthy before putting him into action. Problem is Buffalo just cut Fred Jackson and are also dealing with injuries to fellow RBs Bryce Brown and Karlos Williams.

Victor Cruz In Doubt For Week 1

New York Giants wide receiver, Victor Cruz, is in "serious" doubt to play in the team's Week 1 opener. Cruz is coming off a torn patellar tendon injury and is dealing with swelling in his calf. 



Fantasy Spin:

We never had high expectations for Cruz to start the year. He's not even one year removed from the devastating knee injury he suffered mid-way through last season. It will be a while before he returns to action at 100%. Rueben Randle is a solid late round flyer as he'll be the team's Number 2 WR.

Chiefs Will Hold Travis Kelce Out Of 4th Preseason Game
Kansas City Chiefs tight end, Travis Kelce, will miss the Chiefs' preseason finale Thursday night against St. Louis after spraining his ankle in practice earlier this week.

Fantasy Spin:
Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Wednesday it was a slight sprain and Kelce would have been able to play had it been the regular season. But with most of the starters getting the night off - if not all of them - it only made sense to keep Kelce out of the game.

Jets TE Jace Amaro Lands On Injured Reserve
The New York Jets have placed Amaro on season-ending injured reserve with a shoulder injury.

Fantasy Spin:
Amaro has a torn labrum in his left shoulder, an injury that occurred in the Jets' preseason opener at Detroit and was initially thought by the team to be a sprain. Amaro finished tied for second on the team with 38 catches for 345 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie last season. Amaro's injury is a big loss for the Jets, who were hoping for a breakout season from the second-round draft pick out of Texas Tech.

Julius Thomas Out At Least Until Week 4

Jacksonville Jaguards tight end, Julius Thomas, needs surgery to repair his injured hand/finger and is not expected back until at least Week 4.



Fantasy Spin:

It's a major blow to the Jaguars who spent a lot of money to acquire the talented tight end this offseason. Marcedes Lewis will be the Jags starter until Thomas returns.

Raiders Cut Trent Richardson
ESPN is reporting that the Raiders have cut running back, Trent Richardson.

Fantasy Spin:
Richardson, the third overall pick by Cleveland in 2012, has been a massive bust. He has averaged 3.3 yards per carry for his career with seven fumbles in 46 games.

Bucs Trade TE Tim Wright To Lions
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers sent tight end, Tim Wright, to Detroit for rookie kicker Kyle Brindza.

Fantasy Spin:
This is the second straight summer that the Bucs have traded Wright, a third-year pro who won a Super Bowl with New England last season. The tight end was dealt to the Patriots last August in the trade that brought guard Logan Mankins to Tampa Bay. Wright re-signed with the Bucs after being waived by New England this offseason. He had 26 receptions for 259 yards and six touchdowns for the Patriots in 2014.

Winston Sprained Ankle Not A Concern?
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback, Jameis Winston, has a sprained ankle that the rookie quarterback and Tampa Bay Buccaneers say is not a major concern.

Fantasy Spin:
Winston twisted his right ankle during the Bucs' second preseason game on Aug. 24. The injury has not kept the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft off the field. In addition to playing into the third quarter of last weekend's 31-7 loss to the Cleveland Browns, Winston continues to practice. Coach Lovie Smith has been noncommittal about how much, if any, the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner and the rest of Tampa Bay's regulars might play in Thursday's night preseason finale.

Amari Cooper Looks Legit In 3rd Preseason Game
Oaklan Raiders rookie wide receiver, Amari Cooper, had four catches for 62 yards in Sunday's preseason game against the Cardinals.

Fantasy Spin:
Cooper was targeted nine times and should rack up the looks once the regular season begins.

J Scobee (PIT)

Steelers Trade For Kicker Josh Scobee
The Jacksonville Jaguars have traded Scobee to the Pittsburgh Steelers for a sixth-round draft pick in 2016. The Steelers needed a kicker after losing Shaun Suisham (knee) and then Graham Hartley (hamstring) to preseason injuries.

Fantasy Spin:
Scobee was the longest-tenured player on Jacksonville's roster, having joined the franchise as a fifth-round draft pick in 2004. He is in the final year of his contract, which pays him $3.425 million. Scobee has appeared in 168 regular-season games and connected on 235 of 291 field-goal attempts (80.8 percent) and 317 of 322 extra points. Among active kickers, Scobee ranks eighth in field goals made and ninth in points.

NFL Denies Martavis Bryant Appeal
Steelers wide receiver, Martavis Bryant, has been suspended by the NFL for the first four games of the regular season for violating the league's substance abuse policy. The second-year player's appeal of the suspension was denied by the NFL on Monday.

Fantasy Spin:
Bryant became a key target for Ben Roethlisberger toward the end of the 2014 season, making 26 receptions for 549 yards and eight touchdowns. He was a fourth-round draft pick out of Clemson last year and was expected to be a strong complement to All-Pro receiver Antonio Brown.

Bills Announce Taylor As Starting QB
Buffalo Bills head coach, Rex Ryan, announced Tyrod Taylor has won the Buffalo Bills' starting job.

Fantasy Spin:
Taylor beat out 2013 first-round pick E.J. Manuel and Matt Cassell after signing a three-year deal with the Bills in the offseason.
