Tom Brady returns to practice after maintenance day, fantasy status safe

USA TODAY Sports

Tom Brady returned to practice Thursday for the Patriots after resting Wednesday for maintenance. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tom Brady was a curious absentee from practice Wednesday for the New England Patriots. Turns out there was nothing to worry about, according to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald. Brady returned to practice Thursday after taking a "maintenance day" on Wednesday.

Brady has yet to miss any playing time this season, and at this point has earned the right to take a rest when he needs it. He certainly knows the offense well enough. Brady is putting up MVP-caliber numbers once again, with 4,276 yards passing through 14 games, and 30 touchdown pass to just six interceptions.

Fantasy Impact: There shouldn't have been much panic over Brady's absence, but fantasy owners with any lingering worry can now sleep soundly. He will play Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, a prime matchup for anyone lucky enough to own Brady this season. He is a must-start, as usual.
