Draft note
by John Paulsen
Since 2016, Brady’s numbers have suffered with Gronk sidelined. Brady’s yardage (-5.4%), touchdowns (-12.9%), YPA (-8.6%) and fantasy production (-9.8%) have all suffered in the 11 games that Gronk was sidelined. Still, he averaged 272 yards in the five games that Gronk has missed over the last two years and his expected touchdowns (2.52) suggests that he left some points on the field in those games. The team will have a full offseason to prepare for life without Gronkowski, so they should have a plan in place to make Brady successful.

NE QB Tom Brady - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at New York Jets
In a Week 6 matchup with the Giants in which Tom Brady and the Patriots offense were understandably expected to dominate wire-to-wire, Brady's fantasy performance was uninspiring. His Week 6 finish as the QB7 was nice for his fantasy owners, but it was two goal-line-quarterback-sneak rushing touchdowns that elevated his final score and papered over his zero passing touchdowns alongside an interception. Brady likely missed Phillip Dorsett as a receiving option and losing both wide receiver and fullback Jakob Johnson in-game limited the offense's offensive playcalling.

Fortunately for Brady, the Patriots follow up their Thursday night game with a Monday night matchup with the Jets, giving both Dorsett and Gordon time to recover from minor injuries, with both appearing likely to start on Monday. New England also re-signed tight end Benjamin Watson, giving Brady a much more robust receiving corps than he's had in the past few weeks. The Week 7 matchup with the Jets is a challenging one, especially with the return of linebacker C.J. Mosley, and the Jets have allowed the 10th-fewest aFPA to opposing quarterbacks during Mosley's absence, but Brady did finish as the QB12 in Week 3 against this Jets squad. He remains startable as a QB1 this week.
