Evan Gattis went 1-for-4 with a solo home run against the Reds on Saturday.
Gattis has now hit safely in four of his last five games and is batting .333 (6-for-18) with two home runs, six RBI and two runs scored in that span. While he's only got two walks to 15 strikeouts over 65 at-bats, he's still managing to post strong numbers and proving his worth to fantasy owners. However, let's all remember that the slugging backstop started off this way last season before going into the tank the rest of the way. Perhaps he's learned how to sustain it, but be prepared to maybe trade him should you start to see a steady decline once again.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Tom Brady completed 23-of-42 passes for 280 yards and three touchdowns in the Patriots 30-24 OT loss to the Broncos on Sunday.
Brady turned in one of his better games of the season and Sunday and while he's certainly had better numbers in previous games it is hard to ignore the lack of weapons on the offensive side of the ball that he had at his disposal with injuries to Dion Lewis, Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola over the last three weeks. Brady tossed three more touchdown passes on Sunday night, connecting with Rob Gronkowski, Scott Chandler and Brandon Bolden for the scores. Late in the fourth quarter the Patriots passing attack suffered another tremendous blow as Rob Gronkowski was carted off with a knee injury which at the time appeared to be severe and yet Brady still managed to drive the Patriots down the field for a game tying field goal try to send the contest into OT. If Gronk is forced to miss any extended amount of time the fantasy impact for Brady will take another big blow as the available offensive weapons will be reduced to the very bottom of the depth chart.
