Brady may be turning 40 years old before Week 1's kickoff, but he put together the single most efficient 12 games in NFL history last year then proceeded to add Brandin Cooks and Dwayne Allen to an already loaded depth chart. Brady doesn't throw as much of Brees and Luck, especially in the red zone, so even though he may be the best QB in football, his ADP should not reflect that.Big Ben could be in for a stellar second half, if he is somehow healthy for it. He plays the majority of his games at home down the stretch, but he has been notoriously bad on the road and so injury prone that he has only finished as a top 12 QB once in the past 5 seasons. You are better off letting him be someone else's headache this time around.

Brady had only 3,554 yards and 28 passing touchdowns, but that was in only 12 games. Those numbers should go up if he can play 16 games this year. The only concern is that he turns 40-years old this year, but he is in great health and the addition of WR Brandin Cooks should help this offense.Big Ben had 3,819 yards and 29 touchdown passes this year, but at 35-years old and having missed games with injury each of the last 2 seasons, he is probably not going to be a QB1 for the remainder of his career.

Brady will be 76 this season, but since he's a system quarterback, I expect he'll be fine. Plus, the addition of Brandin Cooks and hopefully a healthy Rob Gronkowski should make give Brady plenty of upside, even at his ripe old age.Roethlisberger has plenty of ability and a great offense, but away games and nagging injuries have been a problem for him. I can't knock him down too far with that offense, but he does have a wide array of outcomes.
Corey Parson

Brady was his normal excellent self in 13 games last season a full schedule this year may make him the top quarterback in fantasy. Auction Value $25 Health and road game are the only things that can stop Roethlisberger even with that being said the numbers will still be there in the end. Auction Value $7

While everyone else tries to figure out who he'll will throw to and which running back will get the majority of the carries, just take Brady and enjoy your points.When I initially did my rankings, Roethlisberger was ranked as my No. 12 quarterback, but something big has happened since that time. Martavis Bryant was reinstated. He's played 19 career games with Bryant, averaging 337 yards and 2.11 touchdowns in those games. You have to deal with his road struggles, but his home games will win you weeks.
