Brady's age and a change in scenery could be knocks, but the Bucs system and talent have me convinced he'll produce plenty to crack the top-10. 
Draft Engine
Draft Engine
He'll certainly have a much better receiving corps at his disposal with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin as his top wideouts. Only once in his final eight games did Brady complete better than 56% of his pass attempts, making it fair to wonder what he has left.Stafford made 136 consecutive starts dating back to the 2011 season before missing the second half of 2019 after fracturing bones in his back in a Nov. 3 game against the Raiders. The expectation is that he'll be ready for the start of the 2020 season.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
TB12 has been slowly falling off as a fantasy producer, dropping a point a game every season since 2015. Despite another positive start in 2019, Brady once again fell away as the Patriots went into their usage run-heavy late season tactical shift. Now free of Bill's fantasy killing tendencies, Brady finds himself in the fantasy promised land, surrounded by Evans, Godwin, Gronk and Howard with mediocre runners you'll require the Buccs to lean on Tom's arm. That makes him an excellent fantasy prospect entering 2020. Just don't get over-excited, as the shortened pre-season will make the transfer to Tampa a little tougher than usual.After years of fantasy mediocrity and seemingly out of nowhere, Matthew Stafford exploded out of the blocks to start the 2019 season, averaging his most fantasy points per game since 2011. Heading into 2020, he provides a relatively safe option with sudden and surprising upside who you can grab later in drafts then many of the more established fantasy guns. He's a great option if he's still there in the double digit rounds of fantasy drafts.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
The end of an era. Crazy to write Brady's name under the Bucs, but hey, this might be the least crazy thing about 2020. He's going from Julian Edelman and Mohamed Sanu to Chris Godwin and Mike Evans. That should help his shockingly low 6.6 yards per attempt from 2019. Not only that, but 2019 was the first time in Brady's career where he didn't have a touchdown percentage of 4.0 or above. It was also the first time since 2004 where he completed less than 61 percent of his passes. Will the upgrade in receivers help him get back on track, or are we at the end for the greatest of all-time? The Patriots offensive line was not particularly good last year, so when you combined that with Brady's inability to move at all, you get bad numbers. The Bucs offensive line hasn't been good over the last few years, though they were slightly better in 2019, and they did draft tackle Tristan Wirfs in the first round, highlighting the fact that they know Brady needs protection. They don't have a James White/Julian Edelman on the roster to be his safety valve, though I suspect Godwin will become that player to him. Will the pass attempts drop off from Jameis Winston? Probably, but know that Bruce Arians has not fallen out of the top 20 in pass attempts since back in 2010. His teams have now been top-five in each of his last three years as a coach. Knowing they don't have a running back like Saquon Barkley on the roster, we should expect 580-plus pass attempts, and if you look at the receivers on the roster, and what their career averages are when it comes to yards per target, yards per reception, touchdowns, etc., it's hard to say Brady won't finish as a top-12 quarterback in 2020. There's risk that he's just flat-out done, as well as risk of chemistry with no offseason, but Brady did workout with a lot of the skill-position players even when the NFL advised against it. He's not a top-five candidate, but if you snag him as a back-end QB1, he shouldn't lose you fantasy leagues.There have been a lot of people talking about Stafford's 2019 season before injury, highlighting that it could be a sign of things to come. He was the No. 6 quarterback in fantasy through nine weeks, yes. But do you know who No. 5 was? Aaron Rodgers. That didn't end well. Stafford's 8.2 yards per attempt was easily a career high and just the second time in his career over 7.6 yards per attempt. He's going to be a fine low-end QB1/high-end QB2, but he's not likely to be a league winner at this stage of his career.

My burning question is will Brady be airing it out under Arians? Does he still have the arm? We will find out...*Prays "Please play the whole season, please play the whole season"

Brady had a very average season for him at 42-years old last year. He now joins a Tampa Bay offense with a much better supporting cast, but the question is whether Brady still has enough in the tank at 43-years old to be a fantasy force. He is a boom / bust QB2 given his age.Stafford was on pace for almost 5,000 yards passing and 38 passing touchdowns before he missed 8 games due to a back injury. The big worry at this point for the 32-year old quarterback is durability playing on a bad team, but he puts up big passing numbers when healthy.

Brady finished as the QB12 last season while throwing to guys like N'Keal Harry and an aging Julian Edelman. He now has Chris Godwin, Mike Evans, Rob Gronkowski, and OJ Howard to throw to in Tampa Bay, making him a solid candidate to finish in the top-12 QBs for fantasy football again this season.Stafford was on fire before his injury last season and was a solid fantasy option. He's currently being drafted as the QB13 and should easily return that value in 2020.

Lowest TD percentage of his career in 2019 and still finished as QB12. Blaming that TD% on the fact his 2nd, 3rd, and 4th leading target getters were James White, Phillip Dorsett, and Mohamed Sanu, no offense to those guys, but they just aren't in the same stratosphere of the situation Tom has in Tampa. TDs up, Tom upIf we can just re-run last year and his career year that he was having before injury, he'll be a steady play for your fantasy team. Don't have to expect a career year 2 years in a row, just need Hockenson to take another step forward, and a hopefully improved run game to keep the offense humming.

turned in another QB1 season with his third straight (and eight of last nine) season with more than 4,000 yards passing, throwing to an underwhelming New England receiving corps. Brady now gets to target Chris Godwin and Mike Evans, with a schedule that appears to have about a dozen high scoring games. @mrhill9169 I've been hesitant to draft him, but I do have him ranked 3 spots ahead of ADP.He was the QB6 through 9 weeks last year before going to the IR.

Tom Brady is officially fantasy relevant again. With Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Rob Gronkowski at his disposal, we could see the most fantasy productive Brady we've seen in a decade. It may take a few weeks for him and his new WR's to get on the same page but once they do it could be dangerous.Before his Week 10 injury last season, Matthew Stafford was QB6 and in the talks for MVP. He returns this year with the same solid group of WR's as last year with the key addition of 2nd round rookie RB DeAndre Swift. Stafford has been known to stuff the stat sheets throughout his career and in an offense with this much firepower, we could see another top 10 finish in 2020.

Fantasy-wise, couldn't ask for a better new home. An odd fit in a "No Risk It, No Biscuit" style offense, but Arians will undoubtedly let Brady control the offense and mold to his skills
