Week 13 Player Fantasy Rankings - Quarterbacks
By Jesse Pantuosco, Fantasy Sports Writer
Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce. Sprinkle in a little Tom Brady and you've got one heck of a Thanksgiving.
Lately Brady has given fantasy owners plenty to be thankful for. Since Week 9, the greatest living American has gobbled up eight touchdown throws to just one interception. His QB rating over that span is a sparkling 115.0. Take away that one pick, which shouldn't have been an interception anyway (replays showed it was clearly pass interference on Carolina linebacker Luke Kuechly), and Brady's rating leaps to a blistering 119.3.
Did I mention the dude is 36 years-old?
Though Brady won't play on Thanksgiving Day like he did a year ago (for those who forgot, that game introduced "butt fumble" into the American sports lexicon), he does face a tasty matchup Sunday versus 2-9 Houston. Brady hasn't been great away from Gillette Stadium (76.3 quarterback rating in five contests) but he torched the Texans in two meetings last season (7 TD, 0 INT, 119.9 rating).
Brady will be a top-ten quarterback in Week 13 and he should be for the rest of the season. Now that the Denver and Carolina games are over, New England won't have to face another team with a winning record until the playoffs.
Happy Turkey Day from The Sports Network and good luck to all of you in the final week of the fantasy regular season.
