Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Brady is dealing with an elbow injury and just hasn't looked the same lately. Add in the fact that both Edelman and Sanu are questionable, and it is difficult to trust him as a fantasy start versus a strong Chiefs secondary.Brees at home has made for a safe fantasy start throughout his career
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Brady has been fairly inconsistent from a fantasy perspective, but his matchup with the Chiefs looks primed to be a shootout, and the Chiefs are in the bottom half of defenses against fantasy quarterbacks. Consider him a low-end QB1. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Dating back to Week 6, Brady has completed just 59.9 percent of his passes while averaging just 6.2 yards per attempt with eight touchdowns and four interceptions. That's over a span of seven games. By comparison, Mitch Trubisky has completed 63.1 percent of his passes for 6.3 yards per attempt with 10 touchdowns and five interceptions over his last seven games. Both have not been particularly good. But will Brady turn it on for this matchup against the Chiefs? He played against them twice last year, throwing for 340-plus yards in each game but also throwing just one touchdown in each game. The matchup against Kansas City hasn't been as great as some make it out to be every week, as they've held 7-of-12 quarterbacks to less than 6.9 yards per attempt, while allowing 18 passing touchdowns and 12 interceptions over 12 games. That's the definition of an average matchup, though quarterback rushing totals have propped-up the overall numbers. The Chiefs have pressured the opposing quarterback at least 40 percent of the time in four of their last six games, which is what kills Brady, as he's the third-worst passer in the league when under pressure, behind only Jameis Winston and Mason Rudolph. Brady looks like nothing more than a middling QB2 in this matchup.The issue when the Saints defense plays well is that it'll limit Brees' pass attempts. We saw that happen in Week 13 when he threw just 30 attempts. It's odd to see that the two games he's posted less than 20.8 fantasy points this year came each time he played the Falcons. The matchup with the 49ers is going to be a tough one. They've been continually getting to the opposing quarterback, generating a sack on 11.3 percent of dropbacks. This is an issue because Brees was without both left tackle Terron Armstead (ankle) and left guard Andrus Peat (forearm) against the Falcons last week. That's his blind side, so monitoring their health would be wise. Even if they're healthy, the 49ers have allowed a league-low 161.6 passing yards per game. That's not a misprint. There's been just one quarterback to throw for more than 242 yards against them, and that was way back in Week 2. They've allowed just 12 passing touchdowns through their 12 games, with no quarterback tossing more than two against them. The only quarterbacks who've finished inside the top-10 against them have been Lamar Jackson, Kyler Murray (twice), and Andy Dalton. Jackson and Murray are obviously much different players and do a lot of scoring on the ground, while Dalton's QB10 finish was back in Week 2. We all know Brees offers nothing on the ground, and actually has Taysom Hill stealing some production at quarterback. It's hard to bet against Brees at home but the 49ers drop him into the high-end QB2 territory.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
 The 49ers are 3rd against fantasy quarterbacks, but Brees is a player that can have a big game against anyone at home. I think he is a QB2 this week, but he does have some upside at home.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
 The 49ers have allowed an average of 169.4 passing yards over their past five games. This is a solid defense and Brees is not a high volume passer, or a QB that pushes the ball down the field, anymore. He is firmly in the QB2 range for this week's matchup.
