Week 12: vs Miami Dolphins

All WR vs MIA

FBG says: Great matchup. Packed to the gills with playmaking weapons - even with Chris Hogan still sidelined by a shoulder injury - Tom Brady continues to pick apart opposing defenses and throw touchdowns seemingly at will. His numbers have rebounded back to early-season levels, with 7 touchdowns, 0 interceptions, and a 312.7-yard per-game average over his last 3 games. Brady remains the league's premier pure passer, and week to week he's a matchup-proof play in the mix for 300 yards and multiple touchdowns. Rob Gronkowski remains a matchup-proof dynamo of his own, producing huge plays and/or drawing valuable downfield coverage every week, and Brandin Cooks has truly found his footing as Brady's top playmaker. Cooks has been quieter than expected thus far, but has produced 74+ yards in 6 of 10 games and remains a threat to score at any moment. Brady is having buckets of fun sending Cooks on deep routes, which opposing secondaries struggle to manage even with safety help. There isn't a compelling reason to expect Brady and company to slow down in Week 12; he remains the top quarterback in fantasy on any given week. It was certainly discouraging to see the Dolphins defense roll over against Ryan Fitzpatrick. The 34-year-old backup, fresh off a faceplant in his first relief start of the year in Week 10, looked rejuvenated in picking apart this shaky-at-best secondary. Fitzpatrick was allowed to complete a stunning 8 of his 11 deep attempts (15+ yards downfield), and it was disturbing just how easily it all came to him. The Dolphins continued to struggle to generate a pass rush, and in coverage they flailed mightily against not only Mike Evans but a host of supporting Buccaneers. DeSean Jackson and rookies Chris Godwin and O.J. Howard all recorded catches of 24+ yards of their own. All told, on the year Miami has allowed the league's 10th-most net yards per attempt, and their last 3 opposing quarterbacks have averaged a healthy 276.3 yards against them. This is a borderline-targetable unit, one that can be beaten badly by downfield passing games. Tom Brady and Brandin Cooks are licking their chops.
