47. . Quarterback. Patriots. Tom Brady. 1. player

This one is a no brainer for any fantasy football owner. How often are you going to bench Tom Brady? The answer is never, unless he’s hurt or on a bye week. He’s the greatest of all time and if you have him on your fantasy squad, then lucky you!

Brady won’t have an easy go of it in week one, as the Kansas City Chiefs will roll into town and their defense is one of the top ranked units in fantasy football. The Chiefs were fantastic at getting opposing offenses to turn the ball over last year, but Brady isn’t like that.

Brady only threw two interceptions last year. TWO. He also threw for 28 touchdowns and over 3,550 yards despite missing four games to start the year.

I don’t care if Brady is facing the 1985 Chicago Bears defense, he’s an absolute must start for this game on Thursday night.
