New England Patriots: 5 must-draft players in fantasy football
By Nick Ziegler
– Tom Brady
Easily the top choice of Patriots to draft is their quarterback Tom Brady. Judging when to draft Brady was a tricky thing last season. Due to his four-game suspension, Brady slipped in many leagues. However, when he returned, his owners benefited greatly.
Last season, Brady was able to total 28 passing touchdowns and just two interceptions in 12 games. The great ratio set a new single season record in the NFL. At 40-years-old, Brady is showing no signs of slowing down.
If he was able to play a full season last year, his numbers would have been comparable to that of Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan. This season, the Patriots are absolutely loaded on offense. With Rob Gronkowski back and healthy, Brady will have the best tight end at his disposal once again.
