Strength of Schedule
Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the QB position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
Fantasy Analysis
Brady got off to a slow start last week but he came on strong in the second half. He should be busy again this Sunday as New England won't find much rushing room against the Jets defense.
Passsing: 251 Yards, 2 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 2 Yards, 0 TD.

Although Brady's final 2013 numbers look solid, the usually steady "Tom Terrific" dragged his fantasy owners on a frustrating roller-coaster ride with some inconsistent week-to-week production during the first half of the season. It wasn't entirely his fault. Rob Gronkowski, Shane Vereen and Danny Amendola missed a combined 22 games due to injuries, and Amendola, the disappointing heir apparent to Wes Welker (Broncos), rarely was healthy. Then-rookies Aaron Dobson (foot surgery) and Kenbrell Thompkins struggled mightily while trying to learn the Patriots' rocket-science offense. Later in the season, Brady proved that he could still produce with a full arsenal of healthy weapons around him. From Week 9 through Week 15, he averaged 370.8 passing yards and 2.3 touchdown passes per contest. Brady has some modest upside in 2014 if Gronkowski (ACL surgery) can play effectively. Gronk is clearly Brady's favorite target now. Gronkowski's presence makes the entire New England receiver corps better, which obviously makes Brady more effective. Brady's other receivers are all returning, including Julian Edelman, who topped New England in receiving across the board, and effectively assumed the "Wes Welker role" in the passing attack. Brady, who turns 37 in August, has lost a bit of juice and accuracy on his deep ball. However, as long as his supporting cast is healthy, Brady is a solid low-end fantasy QB1.

New England Patriots Team Talk
Up 38-0 and you come out in the shotgun throwing deep fades to Moss. Brady must be on his fantasy team...
This place is pretty dead. Allow me to liven it up with some random photos. [img:iinc1r7r][/img:iinc1r7r] Jules looking good. Happy Birthday. This pic on twitter from a few days ago is hilarious ...
What do you guys think about the new look Pats...they have made some interesting moves this offseason! Love the moves? Hate the moves?...
Can any NE homers tell me what the former genius Belichick is up to? They continue to release/cut players in the secondary, while Dowling is headed to the IR list. I realize they have the worst ranked pass defense in the league, but that doesn't ...
I'm over it. It's time for him to go. Will be trying this week to trade him for a wr on a bye week. I realize that Hernandez might start opening him up after the good game, but I just don't think that it will be enough. No Moss, no deep ...

Draft Analysis
Round 1, Pick 11
Top player on a great team. Brady has proven to be top of the list of QB at last. I think he will have another year with over the top stats.
Very minor concern over injury risk.
Draft Strategy
I hate to take a QB this early but drafting # 11 I he was the top player on my board. I figured he would get me more than any of the backs and receivers on the board. (Contributed by: GUESS_WHOM)

Round 2, Pick 6
What's not to like about Tom Brady? He makes all the players around him better. He scores TDs and he wins games.
Brady has stayed very healthy in his career. But the one concern I have is the health of his offensive line. If he is on the ground, he can't throw the ball down the field.
Draft Strategy
I almost took Brady with my 1st round pick, so when he was still there in the 2nd I had to take him. I will be scoring a lot of points when Brady throws 4 TDs, 2 of them to Moss. I expect my squad to be unstoppable expect in week 4 when Brady/Moss are on bye. (Contributed by: Greg_Allen)
