There's little to analyze at this point with Brady. Although an opposing defense may keep him in check for the first half of the game, there's nothing that can hold him down for good. After an incredible comeback performance against an elite Jacksonville defense (while playing without Rob Gronkowski), Brady should be ready to go this weekend against Philadelphia. The Eagles have a solid pass defense, as they've shown thus far in the playoffs, but they were merely good, but not elite, for fantasy purposes against opposing quarterbacks this season. If there's any concern about Brady here, it's that it's unlikely that the Eagles will be playing from significantly ahead for long, which could obviate the need for a frantic comeback - where Brady does his best work. Still, from a fantasy perspective, Brady needs to be considered a better option than Nick Foles for the Super Bowl, and should likely have his standard excellent day.Foles has played extremely well during the playoffs, and was utterly on point against a strong Minnesota defense in the Championship Round. He'll obviously need to be at his best in the Super Bowl for the Eagles to be able to come out on top against the Patriots. New England's defense clearly improved throughout the season, and they did well to limit opposing quarterbacks in the latter portion of the year. But Blake Bortles showed that it's far from impossible to move the ball well and consistently against the Patriots, and Foles should be able to do so during the Super Bowl. Favoring a big fantasy day from Foles is that you know the Eagles will need to put up a big offensive output to win the game, so you can expect him to throw often. Either way, Foles showed against the Vikings that he can put up big numbers even in a blowout win, so expect decent fantasy production regardless.

Brady just carved up the Jaguars talented D for 290 yard and 2 touchdowns. He should be able to have a big game and he will have no nerves in his 8th Super Bowl appearance. Foles is perfectly capable of having a big game, he had 352 yards passing and 3 touchdowns against a tough Vikings D. Unlike Brady, he will be starting in his first Super Bowl and he is clearly the 2nd quarterback in this game.
