Fantasy Football: You've got to sit this big-time QB

Our fantasy football guru Mike Baldwin never thought he’d say it, but he is this week.

Sit Tom Brady.

The New England quarterback has been a sought-after commodity in fantasy leagues for years, but right now, Brady and the Patriots’ offense is pitiful. They managed just six points last week against the Bengals, but even before that, they were showing signs of a slow down.

* 23 points vs. the Bucs in Week 3.

* 13 points vs. the Jets in Week 2.

* 23 points vs. the Bills in Week 1.

Their biggest output came in Week 4 vs. the Falcons, but even then, it wasn’t an offensive explosion. The Pats scored 30 points that week.

So, until the Pats show some signs of life, sit Brady. Even Baldwin plans to do so this week.
