- Tom Brady ($8,800/$7,000) projects to be the highest-owned quarterback this week, which makes sense given the Titans rank 17th in quarterback aFPA and the Patriots have a slate-high 30.5-point implied team total. The Titans have allowed 27 passing touchdowns this season (eighth-most) and have allowed an average of two passing touchdowns per game over their last three games. The only thing capping Brady’s upside is if he doesn’t need to throw often and they take a more balanced approach to this game. Not including Week 17, when he didn’t finish the full game, Brady failed to top 300 yards passing and had one or fewer touchdowns in three of those five games. That said, he always boasts one of the highest floors you can ask for, but we need more than that at his price.
