In an interview that Tom Brady did with Oprah Winfrey, he said, "I think about it more now than I used to. I think I’m seeing that there’s definitely an end coming, sooner rather than later," when asked about his NFL future. (Washington Post)

Fantasy Impact:

The time is coming sooner than most of us would like it to, as it seems the NFL is starting to lose one of the greatest groups of quarterbacks we've ever seen. Brady will turn 41 years old in August, and no matter what diet he's on, he cannot prevent father time from stepping in and taking its course. We may have seen the start of his decline towards the end of 2017, as he threw just six touchdowns in the final five regular season games with five interceptions. His ratio over the first 11 games was 26 touchdowns to just three interceptions. He's still going to be drafted as a top-five fantasy quarterback, but you should know that he comes with more risk than ever, especially after he lost his starting Pro Bowl left tackle Nate Solder this offseason.
