Tom Brady (shoulder) is practicing in full for Week 17.

Brady's "injury" wasn't a factor in Week 16. He'll be his usual self against the Bills.

Tom Brady completed 14-of-26 passes for 172 yards and a touchdown as the Patriots dominated Baltimore 41-7 in Week 16.

It was an easy day for Brady, who was tasked with doing very little as New England's D took it to a gimpy Joe Flacco. Both the 172 yards and 14 completions were his fewest since he posted 13 and 116, respectively, against the Dolphins in Week 8. Strangely, that performance also came in a victory. The bad news is that Brady lost yet another weapon, as Shane Vereen missed the better part of three quarters with a groin injury. His Week 17 status is unclear. Brady has 4,221 yards and 24 scores heading into Week 17.

Tom Brady (shoulder) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.

Maybe Brady is sore, but he isn't hurt. He's on the QB1 borderline for Week 16.

Tom Brady completed 34-of-55 passes for 364 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in New England's 24-20, Week 15 loss to the Dolphins.

Brady did all he could to overcome the absence of Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Dobson and Kenbrell Thompkins, but found things even more complicated after losing LT Nate Solder to another concussion. Brady's worst throw was his last, where he tossed a pick to reserve CB Michael Thomas in the end zone. Brady absolutely shredded the Dolphins in the middle of the field, finding slot men Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola for a combined 23 catches and 270 yards. Going on the road to take on the Ravens, Brady has a dicey Week 16 matchup, but will remain in the QB1 conversation. He needs Solder back, however.

Tom Brady (throwing shoulder) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

Brady's status isn't a concern for Week 15. Adjusting to life without Rob Gronkowski, he'll be a mid-range QB1 against the Dolphins' solid pass defense.

Tom Brady (right shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Brady should be fine for Week 15 against the Dolphins on the road. Without Rob Gronkowski (torn ACL, MCL), consider Brady a back-end QB1.

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.

The Broncos' defense has limited opposing quarterbacks to a combined 60-of-113 passing (53.1 percent) for 628 yards (5.56 YPA) and a 4:4 TD-to-INT ratio with ten sacks over Denver's last three games.

They've faced San Diego, Washington, and Kansas City over that stretch. With Von Miller heating up, the Broncos are quietly playing stout pass defense. Sunday night's matchup is far from a cakewalk for Tom Brady, though the game's shootout potential may buoy his fantasy production on Sunday Night Football.

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.

Brady was extremely efficient for much of the night before the final drive. At one point, he completed 13 consecutive passes. 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.
