Despite the Patriots scoring 31 points against the Broncos in Week 5, Tom Brady only finished with one touchdown and 233 yards through the air. Brady did manage to punch in a 1-yard score at the goal line as well.
Fantasy Impact: The Patriots run game continues to take the pressure off Brady. New England's back ran the ball 50 times for a ridiculous 253 yards, making it easy for Brady to sit back and let some of the other guys go to work. Josh McDaniels seems to want the ground game to keep going strong each week, so Brady may not be putting up ridiculous numbers as often with this strategy. Still, fantasy owners have nothing to worry about with him in the lineup.
