Tom Brady activated.
The Patriots will play the Browns, kinda the perfect team for Brady to knock off any rust, if there is rust, against.
The Patriots had trouble beating the Browns in the past and the Browns usually give the Patriots fits, but tomorrow I highly doubt that will happen.
The Patriots’ offense will roll back out number 12 which means big Gronk is about to tear it up once again. He has a hamstring problem but I don’t think it will limit him too much tomorrow. Gronk missed the first two games, was limited in the third and only caught one pass in the fourth and I believe it is because for younger quarterbacks they like a player to have some space. But, big Gronk doesn’t always create a lot of space, instead you throw it in his direction and let his body do the rest. Brady does that because of all the years, reps, and trust between the two. Gronk will be Gronk again with Brady. Edelman is gonna Edelman again with Brady. Bennett has been awesome no matter the QB, but especially with Brissett so I can only imagine things will get better with Brady. All those weapons and Brady tomorrow should see an offensive explosion. I think the Pats will be pass heavy and be just like old times.
The defense will pin their ears back and go against a rookie QB. A rookie QB picking up, reading, and understanding the kind of defense that’s about to be thrown at him will be tough. This is the perfect time for the defense to get their bearings and act together because if they struggle tomorrow then it’s time to panic a little about just how good the defense truly is.
I think the Patriots win 31-17.
Fantasy Advice for tomorrow: Start Brady, Gronk and Edelman.
