2. Tom Brady

Even though I believe Brady is still the best quarterback in the league, I don’t think he is one of the best fantasy signal callers available. He simply doesn’t have the weapons that his counterparts have. And while I don’t think Brady will be among the fantasy elite this year, I still think he will bring about solid fantasy points to whoever adds him to their team in 2014. Despite all of the criticism that has been heaped onto him this offseason, Brady is still a great quarterback, and he will do whatever it takes to win, which generally includes putting up good numbers. He will have three quality receivers to roll with (Dobson, Amendola, Edelman), and Brandon LaFell, a taller wideout who will help with New England’s red zone struggles. Hopefully Brady will return to the old days, where he just spread the ball around to the open players, instead of keying in on one particular player. If he does this, he will have a very productive 2014 campaign.
