Heading into 2020, the consensus thought was that there was no way Bruce Arians would air the ball out as much with Tom Brady as he did with Jameis Winston. Well, Arians did just that and it led to fantasy production across the board in Tampa Bay. The Bucs went from 630 pass attempts in 2019 to 626 in 2020 and it's hard to see that number drastically decreasing in 2021. While the ground game could take a step forward for the Bucs this season, there's still a lot of inconsistency on this roster that could lead to Brady airing it out all over the yard yet again. Obviously, Brady doesn't come with rushing upside at all, but with his high passing volume and plethora of talented receiving weapons, he should push to be in the top-12 again. As a safe option that's going to give you an incredibly high floor each week, Brady's a great selection in fantasy yet again this season.Did you know that Tannehill had seven rushing touchdowns last season? With Tannehill's incredible efficiency - due in large part to AJ Brown - plus his rushing potential, he comes with a very safe floor every single week. The passing volume - or lack thereof - holds him back from being a true top-5 option at the QB position for fantasy football, but it's hard to find a more consistent option week after week. Heading into 2021, Tannehill lost Corey Davis and Jonnu Smith, but he replaced them with Julio. Arthur Smith has also left Tennessee as the OC to become the head coach of the Atlanta Falcons, which does leave some concern for how this offense will look under Todd Downing. Any argument that is brought up against Tannehill though is nitpicking. He's an extremely safe option and he does come with some weekly upside due to that rushing potential around the goal line. He can be viewed as a low-end QB1 this season.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
To think that Brady would join a new team at 43 years old, have zero offseason, then proceed to throw for 4,633 yards and 40 touchdowns is mindblowing. He's going to be 44 years old when the season starts, which brings us back to the conversation, "When does he fall off?" I'm done trying to predict that, but it must be factored into his price in fantasy drafts. Was last year a best-case scenario? He finished as the QB8 even with those numbers, as mobility is almost neccesary to finish higher in today's game. Because of that, Brady shouldn't be drafted as anything more than a low-end QB1 with a limited ceiling.Tannehill has been disrespected by the fantasy community long before Julio Jones was traded there. Tannehill became the starter of the Titans in Week 7 of 2019. Since that time, he's tallied 575.3 fantasy points, which ranks third among quarterbacks, behind only Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson. That's right... despite ranking 16th in pass attempts during that time (26-game sample size), he's finished with more fantasy points than Patrick Mahomes, Russell Wilson, Kyler Murray, and Deshaun Watson.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
There may have been reason to doubt Brady's ability to produce at an elite level moving from New England to Tampa Bay last year but, as usual, he proved all the doubters wrong. We've all heard by now that Brady didn't learn Bruce Arians' playbook until mid-year. From Weeks 1-9, Brady averaged a respectable 19.95 fantasy points per game. From Weeks 10-17, he averaged 24.34 points per game, just behind Aaron Rodgers and Lamar Jackson. With every notable offensive piece returning and fresh off a Super Bowl win, Brady should again be in line for another excellent season, both real and fantasy. 
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 The True Value King! Tanny has been THE most efficient QB in the game over the last several seasons according to BrotoFantasy.com and the Fantasy Football By BRoto App exclusive stat, True Throw Value, which measures QB efficiency. Now he has Julio by his side as well? Sign me up!
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Brady was stellar in 2020 with 349.92 fantasy points and 21.87 fantasy points per game in 16 games. Brady should be a low-end QB1, although he is a risky player at 44-years old.Tannehill was fantastic in 2020 with 350.36 fantasy points in 16 games or 21.90 fantasy points per game. He should be in the QB1 discussion in 2021, especially with that acquisition of Julio Jones.
Joe Pisapia
FantasyPros
The entire regular season was one giant practice session for Tom Brady and the Bucs to get right for the playoffs. Not only did they click at the right time, but they went on to win a Super Bowl (Tom Brady's 7th title and 10th appearance). He was supposed to slow down, fade away, etc. It's not happening. Just accept it. Brady has his gang coming back again for '21. A healthy Chris Godwin will be scary, along with Mike Evans and Antonio Brown, over an entire season. The most critical return may be running back Leonard Fournette. In these last few years of Brady's career, he's been at his best running play action effectively. Fournette's emergence late in the year carried over into the playoffs, was a big part of the Bucs' run in the playoffs. Five of his last seven regular-season games went over 340+ passing yards. It's hard not to see Brady realistically approaching 4.5K yards and 30+ TDs again in '21. Brady finished as QB8 overall, and he should be drafted as a QB1 this season again in fantasy. We should all find something in life we love as much as Tom Brady loves to play football and prove people wrong.2020 was a roller coaster for the Titans and QB Ryan Tannehill. The fact he finished as a QB1 (8) times and a QB2 (8) times says it all. He finished with 3.8K yards, 33 passing TDs, and seven rushing TDs. Ideally, you want Tannehill as your second QB in a Superflex format. That bonus upside he brings some weeks can be huge. However, as your starting quarterback in a single QB format, the inconsistencies could hurt you some weeks. The Titans lost Corey Davis and Jonnu Smith to free agency, but added Julio Jones in June to create one of the more formidable WR corps in the NFL. Tannehill has established himself as a fantasy-worthy QB, it's just that no one seems to give him his due. The Jones addition will raise that profile, but overpaying for Tannehill isn't advisable either. He's a lower end QB1, but still underappreciated.

Ahoy there fantasy mateys! TB12 knows the playbook now and has developed a rapport with his WRs which is scary. Seriously, how much better can the Bucs offense be in 2021? Everyone came back too. Not only that, but they also get TE O.J. Howard back from injury and added RB Gio Bernard from free agency. The Bucs offense is loaded. Brady should be in for another monster year if he can stay healthy. Father Time be damned! Give me the soon to be 44 year old QB and set sail for fantasy gold! Arghh!!!The addition of Julio Jones makes this offense very interesting. The big question, will Titans head coach, Mike Vrabel, allow New offensive coordinator, Todd Downing, to air it out more often? He should, otherwise why did they trade for Julio in the first place? If he does, Tannehill could have a career year.
Tim Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
I will not bet against Tom Brady ever. In the second half of last year, when most older players would have started slowing down, Brady got better. According to offseason reports, he didn't even know the playbook for the majority of the season. The GOAT knows the playbook now and can smell sports immortality if he wins again. Doubt him at your won risk.The True Throw Value (a BRoto Fantasy Exclusive Stat that measures a QB's fantasy efficiency through the air) king was wildly efficient yet again last season, finishing third overall for his second top-3 and third top-6 finish in as many years. This year he will add the aging Julio Jones to the mix and look to take the offense to the next level after OC Arthur Smith went to the Falcons. The first play-action bomb Julio Jones catches will be a thing of beauty. He is going to be slept on yet again, don't miss out for a third straight year.
John Hesterman
Dynasty League Football
 We cannot pretend that the addition of Julio Jones is not straight positive for Tannehill's seasonal outlook. He should be locked and loaded as a top-12 option at the position and is a safe pick for a team's QB1 in all formats.
