Week 6: vs Kansas City Chiefs

All WR vs KC

FBG says: Great matchup. Last Thursday brought us a classic Tom Brady performance, as he hit on 34 of his 44 throws for 341 yards and 3 touchdowns. That's to be expected against the Colts, of course, but it was encouraging to see after a month of struggling to gel with his limited, pared-down receiving corps. Third-down back James White has been fully dependable, but the team would love to expand its capabilities beyond him. Bringing Julian Edelman back into the mix is important; Brady has a great rapport with his slot man, who's not a world-beater but more effective in a heavy-usage role than Phillip Dorsett. Rob Gronkowski continues to dominate up the seams and near the end zone, and Josh Gordon's role keeps escalating, giving Brady enough week-to-week firepower to be treated as a matchup-proof fantasy quarterback. It's important to note the unpredictable nature of his receivers' roles, but there's no reason to ever project a down week for Brady and this passing game as a whole. The interceptions (six over five games) look worrisome, but with Edelman back on board, the reliability of Brady's weapons should take a noticeable step forward. The Kansas City pass defense continues to serve as one of the league's weakest and most targetable units. They've now allowed 3 of their 5 opponents to throw for at least 424 yards, and while garbage time has been a factor, it hasn't been the only one. Quarterbacks are simply having little trouble beating their shaky coverage men down the field - through 5 weeks, no defense has allowed more completions of 20 yards or more. At least it's been encouraging to see them harangue the poorer ones and goad them into rough, turnover-filled days. Edge rushers Justin Houston and Dee Ford have been dominating offensive tackles all year, and over the past two weeks, they've hammered Case Keenum and Blake Bortles, resulting in nine sacks and six takeaways. Tom Brady, of course, is a different animal, and unless more Chiefs step up to make plays, he'll represent a 180-degree turn from the past 2 weeks. With little pass rush beyond Houston and Ford and a dearth of coverage talent in the secondary, Brady should be facing his juiciest matchup of the young season.
