The Patriots are 5-0 at home this season, but they have a tough matchup this week. The Vikings come to Foxborough, and they have a very good team with one of the league's best defenses. Should fantasy teams be looking to sit down Tom Brady?
Backup options may vary, but my early lean is that Brady will be fine. Tough though Minnesota's defense is, it hasn't been quite as tough away from home. At home, it's been very tough. Only two (of six) quarterbacks threw for even 200 yards, and no one threw more than 1 TD. Visiting quarterbacks include Drew Brees, Matthew Stafford and Aaron Rodgers, plus some lesser guys.

On the road, they haven't been as tough. Only one terrible game, against Jared Goff, but softer in general.

Not an easy matchup, but Brady should be OK. Vikings also aren't certain to have cornerback Xavier Rhodes, who injured a hamstring against Green Bay last week.
