Tom Brady2010 MVP, Tom Brady, is New England’s Blue-Chipper

Tom Brady: Brady, the reigning NFL MVP, obviously owns the position in New England. He’s also the only true blue-chipper in Foxborough fantasy-wise, having scored third among quarterbacks in most formats in 2010. I see him going somewhere late in the second round in 2011, but he’ll probably see a drop in fantasy production, simply because it’s hard to do what he did last year. His fantasy score was built on a league-leading 36 touchdowns passing, and a freakish league-low of 4 interceptions.

Brian Hoyer: It’s always fun to have the backup New England quarterback in the back of your mind. Matt Cassel took over in ’08 and showed that he could put up some decent numbers. If Brady falls, perhaps Hoyer could produce, too?

Running Backs

BenJarvus Green-Ellis: Green-Ellis led the Patriots in 2010 with 1,008 yards rushing and 13 touchdowns. It was his first season as the number one back (thanks to Laurence Maroney being traded to Denver, and Fred Taylor being consistently injured). He was used mostly as a short-yardage back in 2008 (his rookie season), and scored 5 touchdowns. In 2009 he didn’t feature much in the offense at all, recording just 114 yards from 26 attempts as part of New England’s running back committee. It’ll be interesting to see what the Patriots do at running back this offseason, with many suggesting that they will draft another back to add to their rushing game. He’s a restricted free agent this offseason, but he’ll probably be re-signed.
