PM ET's fantasy football staff has unveiled its top 200 player rankings and here is a look at where the top Patriots fall in the list:

35. TE Rob Gronkowski (third at position)
58. RB Shane Vereen (26th at position)
61. WR Julian Edelman (24th at position)
66. RB Stevan Ridley (28th at position)
97. WR Danny Amendola (42nd at position)
111. QB Tom Brady (12th at position)
136. WR Aaron Dobson (51st at position)
148. Patriots defense/special teams (ninth as a unit)
152. K Stephen Gostkowski (second at position)
170. WR Brandon LaFell (57th at position)

As the piece notes, these rankings are based on a 10-team ESPN standard league with 16-player rosters, starting one quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, one tight end, one flex (RB/WR/TE), a team defense and a kicker.

Any objections?

Fantasy roundtable: Brady's outlook

June, 13, 2013
There's a different look in the Patriots' receiving corps leading into 2013, as gone are Wes Welker and Brandon Lloyd, with Danny Amendola leading the list of newcomers. But the most integral piece of the offense, Tom Brady, remains, and he's become a popular topic of debate as it relates to fantasy football.

For those with an interest in fantasy football, the fantasy staff, including's Field Yates, recently debated Brady's merits for the upcoming season, factoring in his new cast of targets and the health concerns relating to his tight ends.

Can Brady, who was the second-highest scorer among all players in fantasy football last season, come close to duplicating his success? How much will Welker's departure impact his production? Will Amendola and the new-look receiving group be enough to keep Brady among the fantasy elite?
