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.The Texans want Watson to play for them. Watson doesn't want to play for them. Watson wants to be traded. No team wants the PR nightmare that would come with a trade for Watson. Also, the Texans don't want to trade him. The NFL might also step in and suspend Watson for these off-the-field incidents. It's not one obstacle, it's many of them. He shouldn't be on your redraft radar for the time being.

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 rumors are that a plea bargain is very possible and then teams can talk trade with the Texans. The word on the street is that Philly and Carolina are very interested in Watson. Denver could be in the mix and don't throw out Green Bay and Vegas. If Aaron Rodgers is steadfast in his resolve they suddenly have a gaping hole at QB. I'm not sure Vegas will want to pay Derek Carr. Even if a trade happens a suspension is almost certain. Best guess- Watson is probably a nonfactor for fantasy owners in 2021.

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.

 The longer the legal stuff drags on, the more he'll fall down my rankings. For now I've lowered him quite a bit. If he somehow doesn't miss time this season, I'll bump him back up into my top-10.
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. 
Tim Petropoulos

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.It doesn't look like Deshaun Watson is going to play another snap with Houston, but will he get a chance to play anywhere else?

 Time to send him plumetting. There's a real chance Deshaun misses some, if not all, of 2021 -- whether holdout or suspension.
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 if he returns in 2021, although he is a risky player at 44-years old.
