Brees completed 19 of 28 passes for 209 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's loss to the Redskins. After throwing for nearly 900 yards and 10 touchdowns in the previous two weeks, Brees came down to earth versus a mediocre Washington secondary. The Saints receivers simply failed to make plays on Sunday, as nobody besides Brandin Cooks was able to top three catches or 25 yards, despite Brees' efficiency. New Orleans will enjoy a bye in Week 11 before traveling to Houston the following Sunday.
Brees threw for 389 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's overtime loss to the Titans, completing 28-of-39 passes while tossing one interception. There was nowhere to go but down for Brees after last week's seven-touchdown performance, but he didn't descend by much. The Saints quarterback is averaging 450 yards and five touchdowns over the past two weeks, yet his team amazingly almost went 0-2 in those two contests. The defense continues to hemorrhage points, which means owners can expect Brees to throw early and often moving forward.
Brees completed 40-of-50 throws for 511 yards, an eye-popping seven touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's dramatic victory over the Giants. The veteran set a new single-game high in yardage and passing scores with Sunday's statistical eruption, connecting with nine different pass-catchers in the process. Brees has struggled with an inconsistent group of skill players this season, as the seven touchdowns nearly matched his season total heading into the game. Brees has still been prolific through the air, averaging roughly 340 passing yards per game, and he now has 11 touchdowns compared to just two interceptions in four home games. The Saints will look to secure their fourth straight win when they host the Titans in Week 9.
Saints quarterback Drew Brees completed 28 of 44 passes for 255 yards, a touchdown and an interception in the Sunday victory over Indianapolis. Brees is racking up yardage at the same great pace he has for years, topping 250 yards in each of his six starts, and 312 or more in four contests. What might be concerning to Fantasy owners, however, is the fact that New Orleans is throwing to move the ball and running to score.
Saints prolific quarterback Drew Brees completed 30 of 39 passes for 312 yards and a touchdown in the Thursday night win over previously unbeaten Atlanta. The offense was quiet in the first half after a touchdown on the opening drive, but Brees and tight end Ben Watson dominated the second half, making up for a running game that didn't do much besides poach two touchdowns. Though he's yet to throw for more than two scores in any game this season, Brees has topped 310 passing yards in four of his five appearances, showing that his weekly floor is among the highest at his position. He should have another busy game in Week 7 at Indianapolis.
