QB - TB
Brady is undeniably one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history but from a fantasy perspective, he has now been outside the top 10 in three of the past four seasons. There is no doubt that he received an upgrade in the weapons department, but his early-season schedule is so difficult that you are better off avoiding him unless you are in a two-QB league.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
TB12 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.
Has best starting WRs in the game now and Gronk has returned. May be able to help you win this season.
