Brady completed 27 of 43 passes for 358 yards and three touchdowns during Sunday's 34-33 loss to the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

Brady broke out of his second-half slump in a big way Sunday, amassing a season-high output in passing yardage while compiling three touchdown passes for the first time since Oct. 21 (four touchdown passes over his previous five games combined entering Week 14). It's been a brutal stretch for those who invested an early-round selection in Brady, as he finished outside of the top 15 quarterbacks in standard scoring formats over each of his past five games entering Sunday, with an average finish of QB18 over that span (Weeks 8 to 13). It's a tough remaining slate for the fantasy postseason, starting with a matchup against Pittsburgh's top 10 pass defense in Week 15 (228.5 yards allowed per game).

Brady (knee) has been removed from the Patriots' Week 14 injury report, Jim McBride of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Brady is thus good to go for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. The veteran QB's overall stats aren't eye-popping; his 3,342 passing yards in 12 games are ninth in the league, but Brady -- who has logged a 20:8 TD:INT ratio in that span -- maintains a decent enough fantasy floor while helming a well-coached offense with a variety of capable pass-catching weapons.

Brady (knee) logged a limited practice Wednesday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Brady is in no danger of missing Sunday's game against the Dolphins, and there's a decent chance that he won't carry an injury designation for that contest once Friday's final Week 14 injury report is released.

Brady completed 24 of 32 pass attempts for 311 yards, one touchdown and one interception during Sunday's 24-10 win over the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Brady completed 75 percent of his passes and connected with nine different receivers while averaging a healthy 9.3 yards per attempt. He threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Josh Gordon to go ahead in the third quarter, but he nearly helped Minnesota back into the game by throwing an interception on the next drive. Brady could've enjoyed a better day, but the Patriots chose to hand off to James Develin for a pair of short touchdowns, rather than attack via the pass. The veteran now has just four touchdown passes over the last five games and has seen his fantasy stock take a hit due to his team's propensity for running the ball in the red zone. He'll look to bounce back next Sunday against the Dolphins.

Brady (knee) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dwayne Allen, who won't play this Sunday due to a knee injury, is the only player listed on the Patriots' compact Week 13 injury report. Also removed from the report Friday was Rob Gronkowski (back/ankle), who was limited at practice Thursday. On the plus side, there's no doubt regarding Brady's status for Sunday's 4:25 ET kickoff, but the Vikings' rugged defense poses a less-than-ideal matchup for the veteran signal-caller.

Brady (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Chad Graff of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Though Brady's practice reps were capped for the second day in a row, there doesn't appear to be any major concern about his availability for Sunday's game against the Vikings. That said, Brady may need to register a full practice Friday to avoid an injury designation heading into the weekend. The matchup with a Minnesota defense that shut down Aaron Rodgers and company a week earlier isn't a great one, though Brady's fantasy prospects would improve if the Vikings' top cornerback, Xavier Rhodes (hamstring) is unavailable. Minnesota will also be down another one of its secondary starters in safety Andrew Sendejo (groin), who was placed on injured reserve earlier this week.

Brady (knee) was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday, Ben Volin of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Brady was also limited at practice last week with the same issue, but he was able to play through that as well as move past an illness that sidelined him this past Friday, en route to leading the Patriots to a 27-13 win over the Jets in Week 12. With no known setbacks in that contest, we'll operate under the assumption that Brady will be fine for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Brady (knee/illness) completed 20 of 31 passes for 283 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 27-13 win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Brady benefited from the return of Rob Gronkowski (back/ankle). He hit the tight end for a 34-yard touchdown in the first quarter and added a 21-yard score to Julian Edelman in the third. With this effort, Brady topped 3,000 passing yards for the 16th time in the past 17 seasons. He will bring a 19:7 touchdown to interception ratio into New England's Week 13 home meeting with the Vikings.

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

EDGE Analysis

The last time Brady missed a regular-season start due to injury was in back 2008, when he tore his ACL in Week 1. It's therefore no surprise to see him out there Sunday despite being limited at practice this past week with a knee issue and then skipping Friday's session due to an illness. He'll take aim at a Jets squad that has dropped four straight games, including a 41-10 loss to the Bills in Week 10. Helping Brady's cause is that the Patriots' Week 11 bye afforded the team's coaching staff extra time to draw up a game plan designed to help the team bounce back from a spotty effort in a 34-10 loss to the Titans on Nov. 11. Additionally, the return to action of Rob Gronkowski (back/ankle) gives Brady another dangerous option to work with, particularly in the red zone.

Brady (knee/illness), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets, is set to play in the contest, Mike Giardi of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

The report notes that the knee issue that limited Brady's participation in Thursday's practice and the illness that kept him out for Friday's session were never considered major concerns, with the Patriots opting to restrict his workload mainly for precautionary purposes. Neither the knee nor the illness should impact Brady's fantasy outlook for Week 12, as he'll project as a quality starting option against a so-so Jets pass defense while getting one of his top weapons back in tight end Rob Gronkowski (back), who is also listed as questionable but is expected to play.
