ESPN - [Full Article]

Tom Brady has beaten the NFL in the Deflategate court case, with U.S. District Court Judge Richard Berman nullifying the league's four-game suspension Thursday.

Related Players: Rob Gronkowski, Julian Edelman

Fantasy Impact: 

Brady immediately becomes a mid-level QB1 and his ADP is bound to jump a couple of rounds from the 8th/9th round into the 5th/6th range. It's a bump for all of the Patriot skill position players, especially Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman. Brady is dealing with a receiving corps (Brandon LaFell, Edelman) suffering from mysterious ailments, so he may not have a full complement of weapons for Week 1 against the Steelers. Still, he should provide solid QB1 numbers in 2015.
