Fantasy owners are feeling the effects of the Brady injury. Last year, Brady sent NFL records like they were going out of style, and won fantasy owners who drafted him, 50% of their leagues. SportsBuff.com is totaling that there are $500 million dollars on the line in fantasy pools this year. This year, he was projected to win 30% of the fantasy pools, by owners who drafted him. That means $150 million dollars changed hands as a result of his busted knee. I didn’t draft him, but I know guys who did. They are fired-up, but we recommended drafting Jay Cutler as your back-up. If you followed our advice, you’re good.
