Tom Brady disappoints fantasy owners in Week 2

Jim Rogash

Without his top passing targets, Tom Brady didn't have much fun against the Jets. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tom Brady completed 19-of-39 passes for 185 yards and one touchdown against the Jets on Thursday night. He couldn't get much going in the Patriots offense with several of his top targets out for Week 2.

Brady locked in on Julian Edelman, targeting him 18 times. He looked out of sync with his other receivers, though, and it was noticeable on several passes that went the opposite direction of the route.

Fantasy impact: Aside from fantasy owners, Brady might be the one of a few people with a countdown clock in his room monitoring the return of Rob Gronkowski. When he and Danny Amendola are back in the lineup, New England should be able to move the ball more effectively.

The conditions weren't great in Foxboro, but that didn't affect the miscommunication between Brady and his wideouts. Aaron Dobson dropped several passes (which might have been due to rain), and Kenbrell Thompkins caught two of his seven targets.
