Tom Brady (TRUST): After his first non-QB1 scoring week in Week 4, Brady quickly rebounded last week with his best game of the season, setting season-highs in completion rate (73.2%), yards (411), yards per attempt (10.0), and tossing five scores for the second time already this year. Nobody passes at a higher rate than the Bucs. They have led for 42.9% of their snaps, which is 10th in the league, but Brady still has averaged 47.8 dropbacks per game, which leads the league.

The Eagles have started the year off positive against the pass, ranking 12th overall in passing points allowed per game (14.8). They do not blitz and play the most zone coverage in the NFL, which has resulted in an average depth of target of just 6.3 yards against them, which is the second-lowest. But while the peripheral stats have been strong, the two other top quarterbacks they faced in Dak Prescott (20.1 fantasy points and 9.2 yards per pass attempt) and Patrick Mahomes (31.7 points and 9.3 Y/A) have both roasted them.
