Coming off his seventh Super Bowl win, Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady is set for another strong fantasy football season with the same supporting cast. Below, we look at Tom Brady‘s 2021 fantasy football average draft position (ADP) and where you should draft him.
Brady will be 44 years old before the start of the season, but he should continue to thrive in an offense that gives him full control. He ranked as the eighth-best fantasy football quarterback among those with at least six games played in points per game last season.

Brady is being taken as the 11th quarterback in drafts so far. He’s one below Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill. Despite his receivers having big-play potential, Brady is typically the first Buccaneers player taken off the board.
He’s gone as high as No. 4 and as low as No. 227. The lower bracket of leagues selecting Brady are standard leagues with fewer than 10 teams, while the upper end is two-QB leagues.
Brady threw for the second-highest touchdown total of his Hall of Fame career last year while playing in all 16 games.

Where should you take Tom Brady in your fantasy football draft?
Brady isn’t going to be taken off the board in the first wave of quarterbacks. Part of the reason his value is lacking is due to his inability to run the ball.
That said, Brady should be taken at the start of the second wave of quarterbacks. In 12-team standard leagues, that should happen around the sixth round. In two-QB leagues, Brady is a second-round pick.
While he’ll be 44, Brady should still be retained in dynasty leagues. He’s going to be capable of putting up 35-plus touchdowns and over 4,000 yards. WR Mike Evans and Chris Godwin will be key reasons why Brady succeeds this season.
