Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Drew Brees was the QB2 in fantasy last year! Well, kinda. You need to remove the game against the Rams where he injured himself after 5 throws and measure points per game, but there he is, right near the top! Now he's being taken as a borderline starter in many drafts and I just don't understand why. He threw three TDs in 6 of his last 7 games, he's got Emmanuel Sanders and a fit Alvin Kamara to go with Thomas, Cook and rookie upstart Adam Trautman and he's still got Sean Payton running aggressive plays! He's got mammoth upside for a bargain price. Go get him and stop sleeping on Drew Brees.12 has been slowly falling off as a fantasy producer, dropping a point a game every season since 2015. Despite another positive start in 2019, Brady once again fell away as the Patriots went into their usage run-heavy late season tactical shift. Now free of Bill's fantasy killing tendencies, Brady finds himself in the fantasy promised land, surrounded by Evans, Godwin, Gronk and Howard with mediocre runners you'll require the Buccs to lean on Tom's arm. That makes him an excellent fantasy prospect entering 2020. Just don't get over-excited, as the shortened pre-season will make the transfer to Tampa a little tougher than usual.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
I'm not sure if anyone has realized it, but Brees has broken the age 40 barrier and is now 41 years old. Unlike Tom Brady, Brees is going to retire after this year. His average depth of target continues to decrease, which will require more pass attempts in order to reach QB1 territory. How to prove that? He completed 74 percent of his passes and threw a touchdown on 7.1 percent of his attempts, yet he was just the No. 7 quarterback in fantasy points per game. His ceiling at this point in middling QB1 territory.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
Brees had 2,979, 27 passing touchdowns, and just 4 picks in 11 games last year. As long as he stays healthy in 2020, he should be a Top-10 fantasy option, but there is some risk as he turned 41-years old in early January.Brady had a very average season for him at 42-years old last year. He now joins a Tampa Bay offense with a much better supporting cast, but the question is whether Brady still has enough in the tank at 43-years old to be a fantasy force. He is a boom / bust QB2 given his age.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Brees is no longer a viable locked in, every-week starter for fantasy football. He's going to be someone that you can plug in to play in certain matchups, but it's unlikely that he ever wins you a week single-handedly at this point.Brady finished as the QB12 last season while throwing to guys like N'Keal Harry and an aging Julian Edelman. He now has Chris Godwin, Mike Evans, Rob Gronkowski, and OJ Howard to throw to in Tampa Bay, making him a solid candidate to finish in the top-12 QBs for fantasy football again this season.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 turned in another QB1 season with his third straight (and eight of last nine) season with more than 4,000 yards passing, throwing to an underwhelming New England receiving corps. Brady now gets to target Chris Godwin and Mike Evans, with a schedule that appears to have about a dozen high scoring games. @mrhill9169 I've been hesitant to draft him, but I do have him ranked 3 spots ahead of ADP.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
 Lowest TD percentage of his career in 2019 and still finished as QB12. Blaming that TD% on the fact his 2nd, 3rd, and 4th leading target getters were James White, Phillip Dorsett, and Mohamed Sanu, no offense to those guys, but they just aren't in the same stratosphere of the situation Tom has in Tampa. TDs up, Tom up
Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
Drew Brees is the classic must start at home and probably avoid while on the road. His home games make him worth rostering but you will be forced to roster another QB for Brees' road weeks. If the value is there and you don't have a pressing need, I'd take him near the double-digit rounds.Tom Brady is officially fantasy relevant again. With Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Rob Gronkowski at his disposal, we could see the most fantasy productive Brady we've seen in a decade. It may take a few weeks for him and his new WR's to get on the same page but once they do it could be dangerous.
