QB Tom Brady
It’s tough to ever advise benching Brady in a fantasy league, but owners who have a top-rate backup with a better matchup could at least consider the possibility. The 49ers are tough against the pass, and this game doesn’t figure to be a points bonanza. Brady is probably still good for 280 and 2 scores, but that is not an automatic start for most teams who are still playing meaningful games.
WRs Wes Welker, Brandon Lloyd
Lloyd was the team’s top receiver last week, and with Welker dropping everything in sight, I wouldn’t bet against him being among their top two pass-catchers again this week. I’d expect him to haul in 5 passes for around 70 yards, and he’s at least a 50-50 bet to score. Welker should see more than his fair share of targets, so I think his statline will be pretty similar to the projection for Lloyd.
RBs Stevan Ridley, Shane Vereen, Danny Woodhead
While I have been Ridley’s biggest backer since the preseason (I projected that he’d have...

Tom Brady wore an interesting hat while going for a walk. The New England Patriots quarterback took his son Benjamin for a walk on Saturday with their dog but could not avoid a fashion mishap along the Charles river in Boston.

Apparently this is not the first time Brady has worn this style of hat. He also owns a grey one which he wore a few days ago...
We didn’t think Tom Brady was going to be heading out for Black Friday deals the day after Thanksgiving, but we didn’t think he was going to be doing this, either.
Brady said Wednesday that he spent the day after the Patriots’ Thanksgiving night stomp-down of the Jets doing some football prep work. But here’s the catch — it wasn’t against New England’s next opponent...
A.B. Let’s be honest though, every day is Tom Brady’s day. Supermodel wife, 3 kids, millions of dollars, 3 super bowl rings and multiple MVP’s and records. Not bad.
The Patriots go up against one of the NFC's best, the 49ers while the Jets move towards the playoffs against the Titans.

1. New England Patriots (3): Here we go again; the late surge for the first seed. Does anybody doubt they’ll get it?
2. Houston Texans (1): They came out and laid a complete dud. Fans better hope that was a wake up call.
3. Denver Broncos...
Tom Brady and company have no problem playing in weather conditions. In fact, the New England Patriots dominate in snowy weather.
Snowy weather doesn’t mean much to the Patriots as it’s something they deal with on a regular basis in the later months of the NFL season in Foxborough.
Dating back to 2001, the Patriots have won 11 straight games with snow falling and that includes...
Tom Brady earned another piece of hardware by being named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance during Monday night's win over the Texans.
It's the 23rd time Brady has won the award, breaking a tie with Peyton Manning for the most all time. It's the second time this season Brady has won the award.
The Patriots quarterback completed 21 of 35 passes...
I know that’s hard to believe right, but the current Patriots’ offense is more potent than the 2007 version.
In 2007, the Patriots went undefeated with Tom Brady and Randy Moss setting a few records along the way. How could an offense that went undefeated during the regular season in 2007 be even more dangerous now, especially after losing a speedster and play-making weapon...
The ringleaders of the Patriots dynasty, coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady, cover the spectrum of Patriots/49ers during their Wednesday news conferences before media that cover the Patriots.
This Sunday night the San Francisco 49ers will have to endure their greatest test of the season as they travel to take on the New England Patriots. With a win against the Patriots the 49ers will clinch the NFC west division and at least clinch a wildcard spot for the playoffs. What’s even more important with a victory, is the knowledge that they can afford to rest some of their...
