Tom Brady, for the majority of his career, has been one of the league's top quarterbacks from both a reality and fantasy perspective. He is arguably the greatest quarterback of all time. Although, this year has been different, at least from a fantasy perspective. 

Everyone knew the cliff for Tom Brady was coming. No quarterback in history has ever played at an elite level at age 41 or older, Brady is 41. As much as Patriots fans would hate to admit it, that cliff may be approaching much faster than they'd hoped. 

​​So far through 10 Weeks, Brady has only been a top 5 fantasy QB two times and outside of that has been downright awful most of the year. 

By fantasy standards, Brady has been a middle of the road quarterback. Most certainly not "elite". Ranking 25th or worse on two separate occasions is another thing you would never expect from Brady, but here we are. 

Brady is 41, with plenty of talent around him and he's having one of the worst fantasy seasons of his career. 

He may not have fallen completely off the cliff yet, but the ground beneath him is certainly beginning to crack.
