The only time Brady missed action in the last 12 seasons was when he tore his ACL in Week 1 of the 2008 season. He has become a rock for fantasy owners and will be a safe bet to play 16 games this year.

Passing Yards – 4,459

Brady has averaged 4,541 passing yards in his last five seasons. He will easily eclipse the 4,000-yard mark, but look for him to finish just under his five-year average this season.

Touchdowns – 31

The injury concern surrounding Rob Gronkowski and the lack of reliable wide receivers will keep Brady from throwing over 35 touchdowns. However, I still have him eclipsing the 30-TD plateau in 2014.

Interceptions – 11

Brady hardly ever throws interceptions. He has thrown just 134 picks in 193 career games and has never thrown more than 14 in a single season. He will have another very efficient season for fantasy fans.

Fumbles - 2

Brady, as I stated above, is very careful with the football. He won’t put many balls on the carpet and will be the ultimate game manager.
