Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
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.After years of fantasy mediocrity and seemingly out of nowhere, Matthew Stafford exploded out of the blocks to start the 2019 season, averaging his most fantasy points per game since 2011. Heading into 2020, he provides a relatively safe option with sudden and surprising upside who you can grab later in drafts then many of the more established fantasy guns. He's a great option if he's still there in the double digit rounds of fantasy drafts.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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.There have been a lot of people talking about Stafford's 2019 season before injury, highlighting that it could be a sign of things to come. He was the No. 6 quarterback in fantasy through nine weeks, yes. But do you know who No. 5 was? Aaron Rodgers. That didn't end well. Stafford's 8.2 yards per attempt was easily a career high and just the second time in his career over 7.6 yards per attempt. He's going to be a fine low-end QB1/high-end QB2, but he's not likely to be a league winner at this stage of his career.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
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.Stafford was on pace for almost 5,000 yards passing and 38 passing touchdowns before he missed 8 games due to a back injury. The big worry at this point for the 32-year old quarterback is durability playing on a bad team.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
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.Stafford was on fire before his injury last season and was a solid fantasy option. He's currently being drafted as the QB13 and should easily return that value in 2020.
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 upIf we can just re-run last year and his career year that he was having before injury, he'll be a steady play for your fantasy team. Don't have to expect a career year 2 years in a row, just need Hockenson to take another step forward, and a hopefully improved run game to keep the offense humming.
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.He was the QB6 through 9 weeks last year before going to the IR.
Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
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.Before his Week 10 injury last season, Matthew Stafford was QB6 and in the talks for MVP. He returns this year with the same solid group of WR's as last year with the key addition of 2nd round rookie RB DeAndre Swift. Stafford has been known to stuff the stat sheets throughout his career and in an offense with this much firepower, we could see another top 10 finish in 2020.
