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.
Granted, “Tom Terrific” has lost some accuracy on his deep ball and will turn 36 in August, but he still is an elite passer. Brady finished as the third-most productive fantasy quarterback for the third straight year, compiling his second-highest passing yardage total and his fourth-highest number of scoring strikes. On the downside, Brady’s longtime favorite target, Wes Welker, left via free agency, and his replacement, Danny Amendola, has been injury prone. There are also injury concerns about Rob Gronkowski (forearm) and Aaron Hernandez (shoulder). Relax – they all should be healthy for Week 1. And if Brady’s receiver corps stays reasonably injury free, the 13th-year pro should compile his usual great numbers.

Round 1, Pick 11
Positives 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. Negatives 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.

Round 2, Pick 6
Positives What's not to like about Tom Brady? He makes all the players around him better. He scores TDs and he wins games. Negatives 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)
