Tom Brady: Week 17 Fantasy Outlook

Bleacher Report AdministratorSenior Analyst IIJanuary 8, 2014

Brady had a horribly disappointing Week 16 against Baltimore despite seeing the Patriots put up 41 points, as New England jumped out to a big lead and just ran the ball most of the game. He could face a similar fate this week against Buffalo, but the Bills did play the Patriots tough way back in Week 1.
Situational usage issues aside, Brady's been largely excellent in the second half of the season, as last week was his first under 296 passing yards since Week 8. Most of his best games this year have come at home, and in a divisional matchup that could be hard-fought despite it being Week 17, it wouldn't be surprising to see him bounce back and finish the regular season strong with the Patriots fighting for home-field advantage in the playoffs. However, there's always the risk of a blowout that would result in Brady sitting out much of the second half.
