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.

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.

Brady had only 3,554 yards and 28 passing touchdowns, but that was in only 12 games. 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.
