Fantasy Football analysis: Bucs QB Tom Brady

The Bucs-Cowboys matchup turned in a mid-2010’s Big 12 game with both Brady and Dak Prescott chucking it all over the field. Brady finished the game 32-50 for 379 yards, four touchdowns, and two interceptions, although the two picks weren’t true picks. The QB was able to connect with six different pass-catchers in the win.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Tom Brady is a definite start for this week considering both his Week 1 performance and the Falcons secondary being picked apart by Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles last week.
