Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady (knee) played on a fully torn medial collateral ligament last season and had surgery on the knee during the offseason, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Brady will be ready for the regular season and could see some snaps during the preseason. He is coming off a terrific 2020 season and can be a No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady (knee) played with a partially torn medial collateral ligament in his left knee during the 2020 season. He underwent surgery this offseason to repair the injury.
Huddle Up: Brady should be ready for the start of training camp and will have his weapons back for another season. He can be considered a No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues if he can stay healthy.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady was credited with a bad throw on 20.6 percent of his pass attempts in 2020 - the sixth-highest rate for any quarterback with at least 125 pass attempts last season - per Pro Football Reference.
Huddle Up: This number would be a shocker if Brady didn't record the same percentage in 2019 in his final year with the New England Patriots. There are a number of possible explanations for this, including the lack of a decent supporting cast in 2019 and getting used to his new receivers in 2020. It is interesting to note, however, that his bad throw rate in 2018 was 18.9 percent. Be that as it may, Brady seems just fine to trust as a low-end fantasy QB1 again in 2021.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady still says he has ample motivation entering his 22nd NFL season. 'It's hard to walk away from something that you still feel like you can do and you want to do,' Brady said recently on The Late Late Show with James Corden. 'So it's not about proving it to others what you can do, it's more about proving it to yourself. And I still feel like even though I'll be 44 this year, I still have a chance to still prove it to myself that I can still do it at 44, because I really worked to a point where I can still do it at this age.'
Huddle Up: Brady finished his first season in Tampa as fantasy's No. 7 QB in terms of total fantasy points. And while the drop-off is going to come at some point, don't bypass a lower-end QB1 value in Brady until the age decline starts to show itself in the actual numbers and on-field production.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady (knee) isn't expected to do much throwing at mandatory minicamp while recovering from offseason knee surgery, according to head coach Bruce Arians Tuesday, June 1. 'I don't know how much I'll let him do ... with guys chasing him around,' Arians said. 'We'll see. We'll see what the doctors say. He may be doing a lot of coaching.'
Huddle Up: Whether Brady is on the field in June or not won't have any impact on his fantasy stock. He has his full receiving corps from 2020 back in tow and will be a low-end QB1 in 2021 fantasy drafts.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady (knee) is progressing 'very well' in his recovery from post-Super Bowl knee surgery, according to general manager Jason Licht. 'I talked to him last week,' Licht said Thursday, April 1. 'I know things are going well. I don't want to put an exact timeline on it right now because I don't want to set expectations one way or the other, but I know that things are going very well.'
Huddle Up: Brady returned to the fantasy QB top 10 ranks last season after a two-year hiatus, and even with his 44th birthday coming up in August, he remains a low-end QB1 consideration in Year 2 with a Bucs' offense that looks to be bringing back most all of the key components.
