The New England Patriots were good enough to win their fifth Super Bowl title since the turn of the century in 2016. They should be even better in 2017.

All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski is back after missing the bulk of the 2016 season (he didn’t play a down in the postseason); they swung a trade for Brandin Cooks, who is one of the most explosive wide receivers in the league; they added cornerback Stephen Gilmore to their already loaded defensive backfield; they acquired two more dynamic running backs in Rex Burkhead and Mike Gillislee; they stole defensive end Kony Ealy in a trade with the Carolina Panthers; and they added a second talented tight end in Dwayne Allen.

One player who again looks primed for a monster season is quarterback Tom Brady. With all of the weapons at his disposal, Brady could very well post a career-high passing yards total in 2017. Here is a look at his main competition for the NFL passing yards crown this fall, according to the oddsmakers in Las Vegas.
