Patriots QB Tom Brady: 'I've never felt better throwing the football'

Tom Brady will turn 36 in August, and his receiving corps has been overhauled. He will have something to prove with that new cast of characters come September. But at least he feels good throwing the ball in May. Actually, better than good.
"Going into my 14th year, I have never had more confidence in how I am throwing the football," Brady said to Sports Illustrated's Peter King over the weekend. "I've never felt better throwing the football."
Brady credits those feelings to his work with former Major League Baseball pitcher Tom House, who is now tutoring quarterbacks. House has made some changes to Brady's mechanics that Brady said have made him more confident as a passer.
So, what changes have been made exactly?
"Well ... I hate to ... well done is better than well said," Brady said. "I'd rather not say. I want people to watch and see if they notice."

Fantasy Analysis:

Brady is doing whatever he can to fight off that "normal downhill trend" that comes with age. It was foolish of me to ever doubt him, especially considering the Patriots have since restocked their offense with a bunch of young receivers who do different things well and should succeed in New England's offense. Brady isn't going to turn into a running quarterback, and that's the only real downside to his fantasy value right now. He is right in the middle of an extremely impressive QB1 crop.
