Though the Patriots have clinched the AFC's top seed, the Boston Herald suggests that most of the team's healthy starters (including Brady) are likely to suit up for Sunday's regular season finale against the Bills.

As is always the case in Week 17, with teams having different things to play for, it is imperative for fantasy owners to scan the NFL's inactive lists before finalizing their lineups Sunday in order to guard against rolling with players who are scratched. In the case of Brady, we expect him to start Sunday's game, though exactly how long he'll stay in the contest is tough to predict. For what it's worth, per the Boston Globe, the last time the Patriots were in such a position, in 2010, Brady played the entire first half, along with the team's first possession of the second half before he was replaced.

Brady completed 23-of-35 passes for 182 yards with a touchdown and an interception in Sunday's 17-16 win over the Jets.

Next up for Brady, who also picked up 10 rushing yards in the game, is a Week 17 matchup against the Bills. If Denver gets past the Bengals on Monday, a Patriots' win over Buffalo would earn the team home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. As it is, Sunday's win has secured a first-round postseason bye for the Patriots.

Brady completed 21-of-35 passes for 287 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 41-13 win over the Dolphins.

Brady, who also ran three times for 18 yards in the game, will take aim (on the road) next weekend at a Jets' defense that entered this Sunday's action having surrendered 29 passing TDs, a mark surpassed only by the Bears (30).

Brady completed 28-of-44 passes for 317 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception, in Sunday's 23-14 win over the Chargers.

Brady threw an ugly red-zone interception right before halftime, and while the New England offense didn't have its best game, the veteran quarterback was otherwise solid. He got a nice statistical boost from a huge play by Julian Edelman, who took an intermediate pass for a 69-yard touchdown on an impressive catch-and-run. Brady struggled against the Dolphins back in Week 1, but the Miami defense he'll face in Week 15 appears quite a bit more vulnerable.

Brady completed 22-of-35 passes for 245 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 26-21 loss at Green Bay.

While Brady didn't make any major mistakes and the box score won't necessarily indicate it, he wasn't all that sharp, especially on a couple of key third-down throws. He did hook up twice in the end zone with Brandon LaFell, and kept the Patriots in the game, despite the fact that the Packers had the ball for 13 more minutes. He'll look to get back in the win column and pad his stats next week at San Diego.

Brady completed 38-of-53 passes for 349 yards, with two TDs and a pick in Sunday's 34-9 win over the Lions.

With a pass-heavy game-plan in place, Brady topped 300 passing yards for the third time in his last four outings. With his slow start -- in terms of fantasy production -- well behind him, Brady has re-emerged as a reliable lineup option at the QB position, while helming the 9-2 Patriots.

Brady completed 19-of-30 passes for 257 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's 42-20 win over the Colts.

The Patriots put up 14 first-half points on the strength of their running game, while Brady's two ugly interceptions kept the score close. It was a different story in the second half, as both Brady and Jonas Gray piled up yardage, leading the Patriots to four touchdowns on four competitive drives. Though he ultimately played an effective game, Brady recorded his lowest single-game marks in pass attempts, completions and passing yards since a Week 4 loss to the Chiefs. The Patriots probably won't be able to run the ball as easily in Week 12 against the elite Detroit defense, so the matchup could favor Brady in terms of volume, though probably not efficiency.

Brady stayed hot in Sunday's 43-21 rout of Denver, completing 33-of-53 passes for 333 yards, with four touchdowns and an interception.

Brady outdueled Peyton Manning in their 16th career meeting, tossing a pair of scores in both halves, to finish with his fourth straight game of three or more touchdowns. After not using Julian Edleman much the last couple of games, Brady got him back into the offense Sunday, as the duo hooked up nine times for 89 yards and a touchdown. With an 18:1 TD:INT ratio in the last five games, the only thing that seemingly can stop Brady right now is the bye week, so fantasy owners will have to wait until Week 11 to use him again, in a potential shootout at Indianapolis.

Brady completed 30-of-35 passes for 354 yards and five touchdowns in Sunday's 51-23 win over the Bears.

Three of the TDs went to tight end Rob Gronkowski, with Brady now on a 14:0 TD:INT roll over his last four outings. Next up for the Patriots and their surging QB is a big game next Sunday against the Broncos, followed by the team's Week 10 bye.
