More ESPN fantasy football players started Tom Brady than Trevor Siemian this weekend

While New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady tanned in the nude overseas this weekend, Denver Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian racked up all the fantasy points.

Siemian threw for 312 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions, which in my league equalled 32.5 points.

Brady, meanwhile, spent part of his four-game suspension for the Deflategate fiasco vacationing in Italy with his wife. Brady is eligible to return Monday.

Almost 1 percent of ESPN fantasy football players started Brady, while 0.7 percent started Siemian. Expect Siemian to be inserted into a much higher percentage of starting lineups this week after he went off on the Bengals.
