After going 10 straight years with an interception rate of 2.0 percent or less, Brady has a 4.2 percent interception rate through two games with the Bucs. It's the same as his touchdown rate. His 6.4 yards per attempt is the worst he's had since 2002. His 228.0 yards per game is the lowest since 2006. It's safe to say Brady hasn't lived up to his reputation just yet, and one of the most worrisome parts is that one of his games was against the Panthers, a team he should've dismantled. Starting for a new team in this offseason was always going to be tough, but no one expected these struggles. The Broncos are a team that's dealt with a lot of injuries and it's changed how we view them as a matchup. Both their top edge rusher (Von Miller) and cornerback (A.J. Bouye) will not be on the field. They're generating just a 2.3 percent sack rate and have allowed back-to-back 18-plus point quarterback performances to Ryan Tannehill and Ben Roethlisberger, though neither of them averaged more than 7.59 yards per attempt. The last time Brady played against a Vic Fangio defense was in 2018 when he threw for 277 yards and three touchdowns, though that was obviously with the Patriots. There are clearly some kinks to be worked out with the Bucs offense, making Brady just a middling QB2 in a matchup that should've produced results.

Tom Brady throws one touchdown in Week 2 win

Buccaneers QB Tom Brady completed 23-of-35 passes for 217 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in Sunday's Week 2 win over Carolina.

Fantasy Impact

Brady had a quiet game throwing as the Tampa Bay offense dominated on the ground. Once Brady has his full arsenal of weapons, his fantasy production should pick up. Brady gets the Broncos in Week 3.
