Brady with a more explosive offense and a full 16-game season is an elite fantasy force - even at age 40Brees is aging but he has an awesome system and can still ball. He's about as consistently elite in fantasy as it gets

We don't typically suggest targeting top QBs unless you are in in a guppy league and KNOW you are going to dominate sleepers throughout the draft. We don't typically suggest targeting top QBs unless you are in in a guppy league and KNOW you are going to dominate sleepers throughout the draft.

(4900 Pass Yds, 37 Pass TD) He's a top 5 QB every year, with all of the new weapons he could put up astronomical numbers.(5000 Pass Yds, 35 Pass TD ) He's always a top 3-5 QB
Brandon Funston
Fantasy Spin
What needs to be said here? He's the most accomplished QB in the history of the game, and 2 of his top 5 fantasy campaigns (based on PPG) have come in each of the past 2 seasons - and his stable of receiving weapons for '17 is among the most talented that he's ever worked withHe's given his fantasy owners something around 5,000 passing yards and mid-30s TD passes in each of the past 9 seasons - I don't see a strong reason to start expecting anything less
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
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.Brees isn't the player he once was, but he's still lights out in New Orleans and has a strong group of receivers. I don't expect he'll slow down too much this coming season.
Staff Rankings
QB List
Some have Brady ranked as high as this year's QB2. I find that hard to justify since he's going to be breathing the rarefied air of the quadragenarian this year. In other words, he old. This concern should not be taken lightly. There have only been a handful of quarterbacks in the history of the NFL who have even taken the field at 40 years old. Of those, only Brett Farve who produced at a high level. That's it. Brady is attempting something that has only ever been done once in the history of the NFL . I get that Brady is special, he's the best quarterback who has ever played the game. Still, being good at football has no bearing on the fact that there is a very real limit to how long a player can continue to produce. Peyton Manning is also a good player. He had the best single season by a quarterback ever in 2013 at age 37. In 2014 at age 38, he threw for almost 1000 fewer yards than he had the year before. In 2015 at age 39, he barely crossed the line as the QB32! The numbers do not lie. There is a very real cliff - a point at which a quarterback's body and mind say 'No more!'. Is Brady at that point? I don't know, but it is worth mentioning that he is one year older than Manning was when he imploded. In any case, when extrapolated to sixteen games, Brady's 2016 production would still have only been good enough for a QB5 finish. True, he's getting Rob Gronkowski back, and Brandin Cooks is certainly a fun new toy, but will they be enough to significantly improve on last year's totals?There are three things certain in this life, death, taxes, and Drew Brees airing it out. Since 2011, he has led every QB in passing yards every year except one: that magical 2013 season where Peyton Manning wrecked every curve. Brees came in second that year. It's understandable if you think Brees will see a bit of regression with the loss of Brandin Cooks, but Michael Thomas and Willie Snead have proven to be more-than-capable wide receivers, and with the addition of Adrian Peterson in the running game, the Saints should have a nice, balanced offense for Brees to thrive in.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Brady had only 3,554 yards and 28 passing touchdowns in 2016, 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.Brees still has the tools to be an elite fantasy quarterback. At 37-years old, he had 5,208 yards passing, 37 touchdown passes and 2 rushing touchdowns. The offense is loaded with young talent, I expect him to have another big season at 38-years old, even with WR Brandin Cooks being traded to the New England Patriots.
Sablich Brothers
5th Down Fantasy
No signs of slowing down entering his age 40 season; YPA was his best since 2011 and his completion percentage his highest since 2007; Brandin Cooks will be the deep threat he's been lacking since Randy Moss left. A model of consistency, Brees exceeded 5,000 passing yards and 35 touchdowns for the fourth time (with a career-high 673 passes).

Corey Parson
RotoExperts
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 Another season of 5,000 passing yards likely on deck for the Saints' veteran passer. Auction Value $18
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
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.Brees is the only fantasy QB to finish in the top six at the position each of the past two seasons. In fact, the last time he didn't finish in the top six was 2005. He is the gold standard of consistency and should be regarded as such. He has missed just two games in the past 12 seasons and has led the NFL in passing yards five of the previous six seasons. Brees has thrown over 650 passes each of his last 6 fully healthy seasons.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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.Just a bit outside of the top-tier of quarterbacks, Brees is still a set-it-and-forget-it quarterback. Much have been made of his road splits, but he is simply ‘less great' on the road. Over the last two years on the road he averages 297 passing yards, 1.73 touchdowns, and 0.93 interceptions, or 17.9 fantasy points per game. That average over 16 games would have been the No. 7 quarterback last year. Not so bad, eh?
