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.

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.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.

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.

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 5,00 passing yard likely on deck for the Saints veteran passer. Auction Value $18

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?
