Tom Brady's Instant Fantasy Reaction After Week 6
Perhaps the most confusing fantasy player of all in 2013, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady did little in Week 6 to justify to owners his candidacy as a No. 1 quarterback.
Last week Brady was embarrassed by a stout Cincinnati defense that held him without a touchdown pass for the first time in 52 games. To be fair, smart owners knew not to start him last week.
That certainly was not the case against New Orleans on Sunday. Brady appeared to have a favorable matchup against New Orleans, but did little to make owners happy.
Brady mustered just 269 yards, one touchdown and one interception, with his lone touchdown coming with just over five seconds left to win the game.
While that's great for Brady and the team, it did little for owners. Brady has now thrown for over 300 yards just once this season and has thrown two touchdowns just twice.
Much of Brady's struggles can be attributed to his lack of weapons, but this is clearly not the fantasy king of old who would elevate the play of those around him. Regardless of when Rob Gronkowski and others return, owners may want to begin looking in a different direction at the position.
Brady is a tough sell on the market, but at this point he appears to be nothing more than a matchup-based starter. Act accordingly.
