Tom Brady Suspension Upheld and LeVeon Bell Reduced

Tuesday, Jul 28, 2015 at 12:00 pm ET

The NFL upheld Tom Brady's 4-game suspension despite an appeal by Brady and the NFLPA.

Tom Brady LeVeon Bell

We anticipate Brady's lawyers taking this to court with hopes of getting an injunction that would allow him to play while the legal proceedings take their course. Reading the 20-page release by the NFL today leaves one wondering what angle Brady and his legal team will hope to use. The destruction of Brady's cell phone prior to the NFL-backed investigator asking for it seems shady at best and deliberately evasive at worst. In any event, control your expectations on Jimmy Garoppolo and the Pats' receiving corp.

Considering the fact that the Patriots are on bye during Week 4, it's not likely that we'll see Brady play until Week 6. Given that he's not likely to play for a third of the season, it’s not surprising to see him being taken as the 10th QB off the board. If he’s not your QB1, he still makes for a fantastic QB2!

Le'Veon Bell's 3-game suspension has been reduced to 2 games for violating the league's substance abuse policy. The league's announcement on Bell won't necessarily impact his fantasy draft position as he's still being taken in the first round of most early drafts. Expect a healthy workload for DeAngelo Williams in those first two games against the Patriots and the 49ers.
