What to do with Tom Brady in Week 6 fantasy football

We go over Tom Brady’s fantasy football outlook ahead of the Bucs Week 6 matchup against the Packers.

NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Chicago Bears Mike Dinovo-USA TODAY Sports

Tom Brady faces an old friend this Sunday as his Buccaneers face Aaron RodgersGreen Bay Packers. It is a matchup that will test him against a solid Packers defense.

Brady is a known quantity and though he is coming off a loss he can provide real value with his now healthy receiver core.

Fantasy Football analysis: Bucs QB Tom Brady

Brady has thrown for over 230 yards in all but one game and should continue that against this Packers defense. A defense that gave up 16 to the Falcons and have only one takeover this season should be vulnerable to an elite receiver core. A receiver room that is healthy now as Chris Godwin, Mike Evans and Rob Gronkowski are all cleared with no designations this week. With healthy receivers and a similar passing percentage in the mid 60’s we have a great chance for some numbers to be put up.

Brady could produce similar numbers to the LA Chargers game where he had five touchdowns. With an angry and motivated Brady, as he surely is after last week’s loss to Chicago, you have a recipe for success this week.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
