Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Brady's coming off a blowout game in which he didn't have to do much to get the victory, but that shouldn't be the case in Week 7. In this important showdown with the Raiders, Brady should be fired up, and he profiles as a QB1 for this one. Through six games, he's totaled 15 touchdowns and four picks. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He hasn't been a reliable fantasy quarterback through six weeks, as he's now scored 14.6 or fewer points in 3-of-6 games. He has gotten more into his game-manager ways as of late, though, as he's thrown just one interception over the last four games after throwing three of them in the first two games. We always knew there was going to be a learning curve with his wide receivers in a brand-new offense. The problem for his fantasy prospects as of late has been the dominant play of his defense and stellar run-game on the shoulders of Ronald Jones. Teams have chosen to pass on 58.4 percent of their plays against the Raiders, which is almost in line with the 59.9 percent pass-rate of the Bucs offense. The issue for Brady here is that the Raiders have allowed just 15.99 fantasy points per game through the air alone, which is how he gets 99 percent of his fantasy points. The reason for the lack of points to quarterbacks is because teams have run the ball in the red zone, scoring every 13.7 carries against them, which is more often than any other team in the league. That's left quarterbacks with just a 3.95 percent touchdown-rate. It's not because they're great, so there's a chance Brady tosses a few touchdowns where other teams would've run them in. The Raiders have struggled to generate pressure and sacks, so the fact that Brady has a 108.9 QB Rating in a clean pocket bodes well for his efficiency. It's fair to say Brady is a high-end QB2 with a limited ceiling but decent floor. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
It's hard to look across the NFL and find a team that's clicking as much as Tampa Bay right now. This is a team that is getting healthy and has the chance to make a very deep playoff push. As for this game, Brady should put together a fine performance, but he doesn't have as high of a ceiling as in some other games. The Bucs should be able to run the ball all over the Raiders defense, which doesn't leave much left over for Brady. He should be a fine high-end QB2, but it's unlikely that this game turns into a shootout where he's forced to throw the ball a ton. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Vegas is 17th against fantasy quarterbacks, Brady is a high-end QB2 on the road this week.
