Quarterback Tom Brady has had an up-and-down year so far and will have a tough test dealing with Myles Garrett and the Browns' defense this week.

Start or sit in Week 12?

The Browns are giving up middle-of-the-road fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks. Brady is expected to have his top pass-catchers healthy for this game, but it is still a tough matchup. With no teams on bye this week, you shouldn't have to rely on Brady this week and should be able to find a better matchup.
