Fantasy Analysis
Week 7 Projections
Brady remains a must start against the Steeler's again in Week 7. Pittsburgh's passing defense has allowed an average of over 293 passing yards per game. In his first two starts since returning from his four game suspension, Brady has averaged 391 passing yards and three passing touchdowns per game.
Passsing: 297 Yards, 2 TD, 0 INT.
Rushing: 8 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
At last check, Brady was appealing his four-game "Deflategate" league suspension. This ranking assumes that Brady will end up serving the suspension. Even though top playmakers Rob Gronkowski, Julian Edelman and Dion Lewis missed a combined 17 regular-season games, and now-former Patriot Brandon LaFell (Bengals) never returned to form following a foot surgery layoff, the elite Brady still racked up some of his best passing yardage and TD numbers since 2012 to finish as the fantasy QB2. Brady finished as a top-10 fantasy quarterback for the fifth time in the last six years. While it's reasonable to suspect that Brady, who turns 39 in August, is due for a decline, it won't happen this year. There's no reason to doubt that "Tom Terrific" can effectively operate New England's precision passing attack, which is tailored to compensate for his diminishing deep ball. Brady's entire supporting cast, including left tackle Nate Solder, returns healthy. Newcomer Martellus Bennett is a very capable receiver and blocker, so the Patriots likely will use more tight-end heavy sets. Free-agent pickups Nate Washington and Chris Hogan are in the mix for LaFell's old deep-threat job. Only a long-term injury to safety-blanket "Gronk" would stop Brady from racking up his usual great fantasy numbers - the suspension notwithstanding. If you plan to own Brady, find yourself a backup that (1) has four nice season-opening matchups, and (2) doesn't have a Week 9 bye.
