Tom Brady has strong day for fantasy owners

The Patriots quarterback couldn't give the team the comeback win, but he did have fine fantasy performance. We break down the fantasy implications.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had 20 fantasy points for his fourth straight game Sunday. The quarterback continued his fantasy hot streak even as his team lost 24-20 to division rival Miami Dolphins in the Patriots' bid to take over the AFC's No. 1 playoff seed.

Brady completed 34-of-55 passes Sunday for 364 yards and two touchdowns. He also threw one interception. It was Brady's fourth straight game with at least 300 passing yards, and sixth straight with 296 or more. His touchdowns came on a 13-yard connection with tight end Michael Hoomanawanui late in the second quarter, and a 24-yard score to wide receiver Julian Edelman in the fourth.

Fantasy impact: There was reason to worry about Brady this week, with tight end Rob Gronkowski joining rookie wide receivers Kenbrell Thompkins and Aaron Dobson on the sidelines. The quarterback struggled early in the year when Gronkowski and others were injured, so fantasy owners were within their rights by being nervous.

Brady, though, came through for fantasy owners. He's ensured he's a definite starter over the season's last two weeks.
