Fantasy Analysis
Week 6 Projections
Battling a stingy Chicago Bears defense with a depleted receiver corps two Thursday nights ago, Brady saw his mini streak of outings with at least 290 passing yards and at least three touchdown strikes end at two. However, nobody's panicking about his dud outing in the Windy City. One week prior to the Chicago game, Brady proved that he's feeling more comfortable in Bruce Arians' scheme by throwing for a season-best 369 yards and five touchdowns with just one pick against the Los Angeles Chargers. Don't expect a rebound outing from Brady in a home matchup against a Green Bay Packers defense that specializes in stopping the pass. Green Bay has allowed the fourth-fewest passing yards and the sixth-fewest touchdown strikes. Garbage time, however, will be Brady's friend. Three of Green Bay's last four opponents passed for at least 244 yards and at least two touchdowns.
Passing: 258 Yards, 2 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 4 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
After watching him suit up in a Patriots uniform for the last 20 seasons, it's going to be strange seeing Brady donning an orange and pewter uniform for the Buccaneers. Tom Terrific, however, hasn't been a dominant player in quite a while. This past season, Brady clocked out as the fantasy QB13 (his second straight finish of fantasy QB12 or worse), despite finishing fourth at the position in attempts (38.3 per game). Brady's 256.7 passing yards per outing (just 6.6 yards per attempt) was his lowest average in close to a decade, and his 24 touchdown passes (1.5 per contest) was Brady's lowest total since 2006. The 43-year-old Brady, learning a new playbook for the first time in a long time, will take the controls of Bruce Arians' aggressive high-volume passing attack, and Chris Godwin and Mike Evans are arguably the best receiver duo that Brady has played with in the last decade. Tampa Bay plans to use '12' personnel as its base offense - there's an extra tight end to help block for the immobile Brady - because the Buccaneers' offensive line let Jameis Winston (Saints) absorb 47 sacks last season. Brady's old pal, Rob Gronkowski, and O.J. Howard will see plenty of action in two-tight end sets, and red-zone specialist Cameron Brate will remain in the mix. While Brady's smarts and experience are clearly beyond question, keep in mind that he's simply no longer the fantasy force that he was years ago. Brady's deep ball and accuracy have been fading. He's a decent No. 2 fantasy quarterback, but the massive No. 1 fantasy passer upside is no longer there.

Passing: 2300 Yards, 19 TD, 8 INT.
Rushing: 35 Yards, 1 TD.
