Expert 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
If you're looking for a competent quarterback to platoon with, Brady should be a solid target. However, you must understand what you're sacrificing by drafting him. Upside. Of the top 100 fantasy games by quarterbacks over the last two years, Brady has accounted for precisely zero of them. Sure, he has the best receiving corps he's ever had, but he also hasn't had an entire offseason to work with them. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Brady had a very average season at 42-years old last year, but with a better situation in terms of playmakers on offense, he could have QB2 value with upside in Tampa Bay's explosive offense. 
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 The surgery repaired a torn ligament in his non-throwing thumb. Darnold dealt with the injury for the final two months but didn't miss any time. This won't impact his offseason.
