Tom Brady 2017 Outlook


Recommended Posts

Yea this is why I spring for him almost ever year. Sure when guys like cam were actually good you could wait but he is awful anymore, and other guys are just wishy washy. Brady is worth it for peace of mind , set and forget it type player in which you're lookin at 25 minimum almsot and potentially 40 to 50 if he's totally going balls to the wall.

Fantasy changes so much within the first 3 weeks in terms of wr and rbs from the draft, but one thing that never changes is how the goat will almost guaranteed get you those reliable points.

The best part was he managed to mis-spell Garoppolo's name 3 different ways.lol

Relax.  He threw a pass 60 yards in the air and dropped it right in Cooks' bucket.  For those that are comparing him to 2015 Manning, did you actually watch Manning that year?  He couldn't throw the b

agree 100%. 

 

knowing that 30 points will be sitting there every week is just so worth it. took him top of the 3rd and not looking back

im literally going back and forth with throwing this logic out the window, and offering quite a damn bit for him. Going to take a 2 for 2 or 2 for 3, so gotta get creative, but man he's on one of those rolls where he can absolutely carry you to wins every week.

 

Logic?  By whom?  The so-called experts?  Well I graduated from using their advice solely long ago.  Only as a starting consulting point.  I give the executive orders! 

 

Why would I drafted him early?  Rule#1 consistency....no one is better in the game.  Yeah draft that high WR or high RB who may bust or may be injured.  Tom has earned my trust.

 

Rule#2 Upside...When you have a single player who is capable of dropping 5 megaton TDs or more on any given week, you best respect and fear that team.

 

Unless he's on your team of course.  :D

What's Brady's value?

 

Would you be looking for a Bell/Hunt/AB 1-for-1 kind of trade?

I wouldn't trade him for anyone but if you need a RB..I wouldn't take less than Hunt.

Do Pats fans feel it's necessary to call him the "GOAT" after every win? Even a regular season game against a rookie QB and below avg team?

After every win, no it's not necessary.

 

I think it's warranted given the fact that he led yet another fantastic 4th Q drive to win the game.

The Patriots defense looks horrible this year. Good for fantasy, expecting a lot more shootouts. Looking similar to Peyton's big year right now...

 

and Brady's last year with a bad defense -- 2011 when he threw for 5200+ yards.

Gotta agree that Brady's value has skyrocketed compared to what was expected of him going into this season. The defense is beyond horrendous. 

 

On a sidenote, Brady has been absolutely pummeled and was rumored to be injured in the last game. If they keep up this rate of him getting hit, I wonder if he'll make it a full season. He is a gritty player and has played hurt before, but I wonder how much beating his 40-year old body can take. And make no mistake, he has taken a lot of hits in these last 4 games. Teams know they're throwing and are pinning their ears back gunning for him.

I don't understand this.  They have 4 RBs (Well when Burk comes back), to run the ball.  

 

Is the O-line worse at run blocking than pass-blocking?  I really haven't paid much attention because their D has put them in catch-up mode every game it seems.

He was playing against an elite defense (CAR).  He only has two remaining tough matchups for the rest of the season, DEN and PIT.

Brady has a bye week 9 and then plays at Denver week 10. Off the top of their head does anyone know of a streamable qb who has good matchups for those two weeks? I'll look into it later when I have time but just wondering if anyone has looked into that yet.

Tyrod has been the guy I’m leaning on fornthose weeks.  Watson might have decent matchups as well

Thank you Tom for crapping the bed in what is one of your best matchups of the season. Going against him this week, and I was expecting a 25-30 burger.

 

That being said, of course he'll be fine going forward. TNF is wacky. He turned the ball over two times.

I think the moral of the story is don't play QB's who play on Thursday's. It's a crapshoot.

It's tough. Goff and Hoyer played absolutely great a few weeks ago. TNF just needs to end. It's an awful experiment and experience. The game last night was at least packed from a fan perspective and crowd cheering perspective.

 

The patriots don't usually stall out in the red zone. Probably Tom's worst game of the season. But, he clearly misses Gronk. Who wouldn't?

Brady took another beating last night. He's not gonna make it the rest of the season if this keeps up. Some of y'all may wanna call Belichick.

or pick up Grapp for back-up.

Definitely a concern especially considering that TB had one whole sack coming into the game.
