Here are some of the Patriots' fantasy football options this week:

QB Tom Brady is peaking at the right time, throwing for 361 yards and three TDs against the Eagles — elite-level numbers. The cold weather won't affect him as much as it does other quarterbacks and he will live up to fantasy owners' expectations.

WR Wes Welker (8-115-2 on 12 targets) showed why you should never consider benching him. He now has six games with more than 100 yards and three over 150 yards and always belongs in your lineup.

WR Deion Branch is solid depth entering the playoffs and had his best game (6-125-0 on 10 targets) since Week Two. This is why you always play him as your No. 3 fantasy receiver.

WR Chad Ochocinco might be in the coach's doghouse. Ochocinco's hamstring injury might never have been serious and his days as a Patriot might be ending soon. However, it doesn't matter, as his days as a fantasy starter ended months ago. 

While it's nothing but a rumor, the Patriots may or may not have interest in free-agent WR Terrell Owens. Have fun and take a shot if you have the depth but odds are it's too late for him to make a fantasy impact.
