Expert 
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
 Brady's fantasy numbers are on the rise now that Julian Edelman is healthy and Josh Gordon is up to speed in the offense. A trip to Solider Field will be a challenge, but Brady is simply playing at too high a level right now to be downgraded significantly.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
This season's QB2 behind Patrick Mahomes, Ryan has averaged 354.75 passing yards and 3.75 touchdowns per game at home. Following a strong defensive start against underwhelming opponents (Jaguars, Cowboys, Texans), the Giants have relinquished at least 33 points in each of their last three games. Not far off from his 2016 MVP production, Ryan remains in consideration for Week 7's top quarterback spot. He's a start either way, but keep an eye on Calvin Ridley and Mohamed Sanu's availability after both wideouts left Week 6's game early. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Giants are 13th against fantasy quarterbacks, but Ryan has 13 touchdowns and just 1 pick in four home games this year. He is a QB1 at home. The Bears are just 23rd against fantasy quarterbacks and the Patriots have scored 38, 38 and 43 points in their last 3 games. Brady is still an elite QB1.
