2017 FANTASY POSTMORTEM: New England Patriots

Helmet_New_England_Patriots_1

Heading into his age 41-season, Brady will be at risk for falling off a statistical cliff (see Peyton Manning in 2015), though he's proven thus far to be a hard man to bet against. Brady has not thrown fewer than 25 touchdown passes in a given season over his past 9, and has not missed a game for injury reasons since 2008.

Helmet_Carolina_Panthers_1

Now 31 years-old, Jonathan Stewart began to show his age as he mustered a career-low 3.4 yards-per-carry and ran for 68 rushing yards or fewer in 13-of-15 games played.

Helmet_St._Louis_Rams_1

Touted as a fantasy sleeper all of last off-season, Cooper Kupp delivered the goods by leading all rookie wideouts in catches. Kupp was particularly productive as the Rams’ No. 1 wideout during Weeks 12-14, notching both of his 100-yard games over that span.
