Number Four – Tom Brady, QB
Should the greatest of all time, Tom Brady be higher on this list? A case can certainly be made, and honestly, maybe he should be. However, one of the reasons Brady is the GOAT is because he tends to be at his best after he feels he’s been slighted. So on the miracle chance, he sees this, (he won’t) perhaps it’ll be just a little extra motivation for him to be even better in 2021 if that’s even possible.
Last season, his first in Tampa Bay, and at 43 years old, Brady actually had his best fantasy football season since 2017. Bruce Arians loves to throw the ball, and he and Byron Leftwitch’s pass-happy scheme certainly helps Brady’s cause. What also helps is the plethora of weapons Brady has at his disposal. None of those things have changed from 2020 going into 2021, and while Brady is now 44, he is still Tom Brady, which is most important of all.
Sure, there is a limit to how much fantasy production he’ll give you with his legs. The thing is though, he still managed to rush for three touchdowns a season ago, so you never really know. There are some truly elite options at quarterback for fantasy, but in reality, there’s none more elite than Brady. Since this is fantasy though, we can’t rank him any higher on this list than here.
