New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (right shoulder) is listed as probable and will play in the team's Week 14 game against the Cleveland Browns. Brady didn't miss any practice time and is fully expected to start in Sunday's game.
Fantasy Impact: The 2013 fantasy season for Brady has been a tale of two halves. After only topping the 300-yard passing mark once in the first eight games, Brady has found his stride in recent weeks and has gone over 300 yards in three of his last four games, missing the mark by only four yards in Week 11. His recent improved play can largely be accredited to the return of tight end Rob Gronkowski and running back Shane Vereen as well as receiver Julian Edelman. Week 11 also marked the only game in that span where he threw fewer than two touchdowns.
Even with elite corner back Joe Haden in the mix for Cleveland, there is nothing that suggests that Brady can't keep up his dramatically improved play. He may be without rookie receiver Kenbrell Thompkins, but that's nothing he can't overcome. Brady is a solid QB1 play and needs to be in starting lineups.
