Brady (knee) completed 33 of 46 passes for 269 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-10 win over the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Minus top TE Rob Gronkowski, Brady (who has now led the Patriots to 201 wins over his career) connected with wideouts Julian Edelman and Malcolm Mitchell eight times each Sunday, while hitting running backs James White and Dion Lewis four times each. Next Monday, Brady will face Baltimore squad that downed the Dolphins by a 38-6 tally Sunday, marking the team's fourth win out of its last five outings.

Brady (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Though Brady is facing the rest of the season without his top TE and red zone option Rob Gronkowski, the Patriots continue to field a roster with ample pass-catching weapons on offense. With some schematic adjustments (such as more three-wideout sets) likely on tap, we'd expect the veteran QB to continue to remain a productive fantasy asset for the rest of the season, assuming his health.

Brady (knee) has been cleared to play in Sunday's Week 13 tilt with the Rams, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Brady was limited at practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the Patriots' injury report, but he was never in any serious jeopardy of being held out of the matchup with Los Angeles. Though Brady will be down one of his top targets in Rob Gronkowski (back) the rest of the season, he's proven in the past when Gronkowski has sat out due to injury that he's more than capable of getting the most out of lesser-established receiving options and producing high-end numbers. Brady still looks like a top-tier fantasy option over the final five games.

Brady (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams after turning in another limited practice Friday.

EDGE Analysis

There's little doubt that Brady will be a go this week, unlike star TE Rob Gronkowski, who is expected to miss the rest of the season. While losing a player of that caliber is never a good thing, the Patriots still have ample pass-catching weapons on offense, so Brady figures to continue to remain a productive fantasy asset down the stretch, so long as he stays healthy.

Brady was officially limited at practice Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

While the Patriots may still list Brady as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, there is little doubt at this stage that he will start the contest, assuming no setbacks at practice Friday. He'll face the NFL stretch run minus top TE Rob Gronkowski, a hit to the team's attack to be sure. That said, the Patriots have ample pass-catching weapons on offense at Brady's disposal, so the QB's ability to stay healthy in that span should remain the primary concern for his fantasy owners.

Brady (knee) returned to practice Thursday, WEEI.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Though we expect that he will be listed as a limited participant, Brady's return to the field Thursday solidifies that he will be able to start, as usual, Sunday against the Rams.

Brady (knee) did not practice Wednesday, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

EDGE Analysis

We suspect that the QB's absence Wednesday is precautionary, given that Brady indicated this Monday that his knee was in better shape than it was at the same time the week before. At this stage, there's nothing to suggest that Brady won't be available Sunday against the Rams, though the fact that he's not 100 percent healthy at this stage figures to lead to him drawing a questionable designation for the contest.

Brady says his knee feels better following Sunday's game against the Jets than it did at this time last week, Chris Mason of the Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Brady played Sunday despite missing a couple of practices last week, and although his knee appeared to bother him somewhat, the quarterback stated Monday that he's 'very happy' with how it feels to start this week. Even though it remains unclear how much Brady will be involved in practice in the coming days, that update seems to suggest his knee should be in better condition for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Brady (knee) completed 30 of 50 passes for 286 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Sunday's 22-17 win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Brady was clearly hampered by the knee injury that landed him on this week's injury report and posted a lackluster 5.7 yards per attempt, but he battled through the ailment to lead an 83-yard touchdown drive with less than two minutes left to win the game. It was his sixth time in seven games throwing multiple touchdowns with no turnovers, and he notably pulled off this feat with both of his big tight ends ailing with injuries of their own. Brady is likely to be affected by the knee issue heading into next week's game against the Rams, but he still appears capable of producing in his current state.

Brady (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

It would have been a major surprise if Brady wasn't out there Sunday, but it's possible that his mobility in the pocket could be affected some by an issue that left him with soreness and swelling in his knee, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. On the plus side with regard to Brady's Week 12 fantasy prospects is that tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett, along with wide receivers Julian Edelman and Chris Hogan, are all active as well, despite having been listed as questionable on the Patriots' injury report.
