Description: A decision on the appeal of the Tom Brady fpir-game suspension isn't expected to come down until near the end of July.

Description: It sounds like Tom Brady could remain suspended for four games to begin the season.
Insight: According to Pro Football Talk, Brady remained in denial during his appeal on Tuesday. Roger Goodell and the NFL office wanted to see a different side of Brady, which according to Pro Football talk, they didn't see. Adam Schefter of ESPN, however, had a different take Tuesday night reporting that Brady was his "greatest ally". It will be interesting to see where this story turns next.

Description: Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is having his appeal of the four-game suspension heard this morning.
Insight: At least we should know the final suspension total before training camps begin. No matter what, Jimmy Garoppolo is the likely starter Week 1 against the Steelers. The question is whether the league will cut anything off the announced four-game suspension. My guess is no.

Description: Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has been suspended four games for his role in DeflateGate.

Description: Patriots quarterback Tom Brady could face discipline for his invovlement in "Deflategate" according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Insight: The Ted Wells report didn't have definitive evidence, but one can connect the dots and figure out that Brady instructed the Patriots equipment staff to decrease the air in the footballs. It is possible that Brady will be suspended the first game of the season, which would mean the NFL opener would be without Brady and Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell. As far as fantasy, if Brady misses just one game, it should effect his preseason value.
