3. Tom Brady
There is a wide array of stances that fans and analysts alike have taken on Tom Brady, but you have to at least give him a chance when making a list like this.
Some believe Brady will greatly regress and he’ll be a demotion compared to that of what we saw from Jameis Winston last season. Others believe he’s going to thrive in the offensive scheme with talented receiving options and he’ll be in contention for the MVP.
The good news for Brady is that Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson are both in the AFC. That will give him an opportunity to shine in the NFC and, if he wins some games and puts up some major stats, it’s not completely out of the realm of possibility.
