Fantasy Football: Should you bench Tom Brady?

{/literal}{include file="blk:carlsonblog_header"}{literal}

Tom Brady ain’t Peyton Manning.

At least not this season.

While Manning is going absolutely nuts in Denver — 12 touchdowns, no interceptions, 1,143 yards — Brady is having a blah year by comparison. The New England quarterback has five touchdowns and two interceptions to go along with 698 yards this season.

So, is it time to bench Brady?

Our fantasy football guru Mike Baldwin says no way.

Brady is in Baldwin’s “don’t panic” group this week. In fact, Mike says that fantasy owners should not ever panic on Brady. Start him this week. Start him every week of the season. Mike says you’ll be fine.

What other advice does Baldwin have for fantasy owners this week?
