Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady didn’t have to do a whole lot in his last time out, and he should be in line for a rebound performance with his matchup this weekend. If you’re deciding whether or not to slide him into your lineup this weekend, let’s dive in and give you an idea of what to expect from him on Sunday.

Fantasy Football analysis: Bucs QB Tom Brady

In his last game against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Brady threw the ball just 23 times and completed 15 passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns in a 26-14 win. The small number of attempts limited Brady’s fantasy day, but he did not play a flawless game either. He should find more success statistically in Week 15.

On Sunday, Brady and the Buccaneer will head on the road to take on the Atlanta Falcons, which are among the worst in the NFL at stopping the pass, checking in at No. 30 in pass yards allowed per game. Atlanta is coming off 20-17 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers and allowed quarterback Justin Herbert to complete 36 of 44 passes for 243 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Brady is a low-end No. 1 quarterback for fantasy purposes this weekend with his matchup against the Falcons.
