Tom Brady completed 34-of-50 passes for 344 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 12 overtime win over the Broncos.
Brady was able to bounce back from a costly first quarter fumble and threw all three of his touchdowns in the second half. He took advantage of the Broncos injured secondary and spread the ball around effectively, completing at least one pass to six different receivers. Despite playing in windy conditions, Brady still managed to have one of his best games of the season and led the Patriots to 24 unanswered second-half points. New England won the game on a punt that hit CB Tony Carter's leg with three minutes remaining in overtime. Brady is averaging 357 yards with eight touchdowns and just one interception over his last three games and will remain a QB1 in Week 13 against the Texans.

Tom Brady completed 29-of-40 passes for 296 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in Monday night's Week 11 loss to the Panthers.

Most were high-percentage throws, but Brady sprinkled in a seam route to Rob Gronkowski and two deep slants to Kenbrell Thompkins. Brady was mostly working it to Shane Vereen, who led the team in receiving, and Danny Amendola in the short game. When he wanted to test the outside, Brady picked on rookie corner Melvin White. With his full assortment of weapons back healthy, Brady is back as a QB1. The Broncos are up next for the 7-3 Patriots on Sunday Night Football in Week 12.

Tom Brady (shoulder) is practicing in full for Week 11.
Brady's been banged up this season, but should be as healthy as he's been since Week 1 coming off the Patriots' bye week. Brady carved up the Steelers in Week 9, indicating that he might be "back" for fantasy purposes, but has an imposing matchup in the Panthers' potentially league-best defense.

Tom Brady completed 23-of-33 passes for 432 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 55-31 Week 9 win over the Steelers.
Eight games of frustration were unleashed on the poor Steelers. With Rob Gronkowski, Danny Amendola and Stevan Ridley all healthy and clicking together for the first time all season, Brady flashed 2007 form. After the Week 10 bye, he'll get special passing specialist Shane Vereen back as well. There's no reason to overreact and put Brady back among the top-five fantasy quarterbacks, but he's re-entrenched as a solid QB1.

Tom Brady was added to the Patriots' injury report Thursday, getting in a limited session with a right (throwing) shoulder issue.
It's the means by which New England has limited Brady's practice reps countless times in the past, and is no cause for alarm. Brady will almost certainly be listed as "probable" on Friday's injury report, and be ready to rock against the Dolphins. His status will be updated Friday.

Tom Brady completed 25-of-43 passes for 269 yards with one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's Week 6 win over the Saints.
It was a struggle once again for Brady as Rob Gronkowski (forearm) was inactive and Danny Amendola (head) left early. He did overthrow Amendola on what would have been an 83-yard touchdown via busted coverage, but for the most part was haunted by drops until Kenbrell Thompkins stepped up late with a game-winning grab. Brady now has just eight touchdowns through six games and is averaging a mediocre 246.6 yards per game. He'll be a low-end QB1 against the Jets in Week 7.
