Week 14: at Miami Dolphins

All TE vs MIA

FBG says: Great matchup. His Week 13 hiccup aside, Tom Brady remains the game's most consistently great passer and arguably its best producer. He's posted 8 games of 20+ fantasy points thus far, third-most in football, as a result of leading the NFL in raw yardage and adjusted yards per attempt. And even last week he completed 70% of his throws for 258 yards; his fantasy day was merely doomed by a lack of touchdowns. That's a true rarity: Brady was fresh off a stretch of 3 straight games with 3+ touchdowns and has thrown multiple scores in 8 of 12 games. Armed to the teeth with dynamic weaponry, including Brandin Cooks, Rob Gronkowski, and an impressive set of pass-catching backs, Brady boasts the strongest floor and ceiling projections virtually every week he's in play. His Week 13 outlook is made a bit murkier by Gronkowski's suspension, but not overly so. Brady is always in position to maximize his personnel and turn his dependably solid volume (34+ attempts in 9 of 12 games) into a QB1 day. He's never a start-or-sit concern for his fantasy owners, regardless of matchup. Saddled with poor cornerbacks and one of the league's most anemic pass rushes, the Dolphins have struggled mightily against the pass all year. They're allowing the league's 8th-most touchdowns through the air (1.83 per game) and 11th-most net yards per attempt (6.5). Don't be fooled by their raw numbers over the last 2 weeks: Tom Brady would've easily topped 227 yards if not for the blowout score, and Trevor Siemian seems to have regressed to the point that he's no longer even a capable No. 2. This remains a fairly targetable unit, and one that Brady shouldn't have any trouble brushing aside in Week 14. The only real question concerning Brady or Brandin Cooks owners is whether the Patriots will be up 27-3 entering the fourth quarter and ease off of the pedal.
