Instead of missing the first four games due to league suspension, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is returning from a bye in Week 4.

And with extra motivation to stick it to the league (and all of his opponents), Brady has played as well as ever through the first three weeks of the season. In those games, Brady has averaged 370.67 passing yards and three touchdowns per game with no interceptions thrown.

Of course, his pace will slow, but that's a record-setting pace of 5,931 yards to go along with a 48:0 TD-to-INT ratio over 16 games.

With a minimum of 22.72 fantasy points in all three games, Brady is averaging a league-high 26.19 fantasy points per game. Just as impressive, Brady has finished as a top-six fantasy quarterback in all three games this season.

For what it's worth, the Cowboys have allowed the eighth-fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season. That said, Brady is my top-ranked fantasy quarterback for the week.
