Tom Brady proves fantasy football brilliance in comeback win

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

The Patriots quarterback led his team to a big win in the last minute of the game in Week 14. We break down the fantasy implications.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady completed 32 passes for 418 yards and two touchdowns in the team's 27-26 win over the Cleveland Browns in Week 14. Brady threw one interception in the contest.

Fantasy impact: Plain and simple, Brady just has a knack for winning football games. He proved that late on Sunday, finding Danny Amendola in the end zone for a touchdown with 31 seconds left in the game to seal the win. Brady's counterpart, Jason Campbell, actually played a better game. Campbell threw three touchdown passes and didn't turn the ball over, but it didn't matter.

Fantasy owners of Brady sure aren't worried about it. His yardage total is what really caps off the big day. Brady definitely got his owners some bonus points this week.

One fact that may be hard to swallow moving forward is that Rob Gronkowski could be done for the year, leaving an inexperienced receiving corps for Brady to handle as the regular season winds down.
