Tom Brady is back from bye and will get the Seahawks on a short week and at home
After a week off, Tom Brady is back as the No. 1 fantasy quarterback for Week 10. He faces Seattle, which is coming off of a short week, and the Seahawks have done a good job against QBs (fifth-fewest fantasy points allowed).
However, Tyrod Taylor threw for 289 yards and a touchdown (and ran one in for a score) against Seattle on Monday night and that was out on West Coast. Brady is coming off of the bye week and is at home, so expect him to come out firing. He’s the No. 1 QB despite the matchup.
Matt Ryan comes in just behind Brady, as he’s making his own case for MVP consideration. Ryan just shredded Tampa Bay last Thursday and this week faces a Philadelphia defense that surrendered four touchdown passes to Eli Manning. Ryan has seven TD passes in his last two games.
Just four teams on bye this week, but some fantasy owners will have a tough time without Andrew Luck, Derek Carr or Matthew Stafford in their lineup.
Teams on bye: Buffalo, Detroit, Indianapolis, Oakland
