Player Outlook

Drew Brees has finished as a top-six Fantasy quarterback each of the last 10 seasons. That's not surprising news. What was surprising was Brees' lack of consistency last season, netting 20-plus Fantasy points just seven times in 16 games. However, he was very close to having more success as he led all quarterbacks in games with 18 or 19 Fantasy points with four. Additions like tight end Coby Fleener and progressions from guys like Brandin Cooks, Willie Snead and Brandon Coleman should help push Brees' numbers over the top. Give Brees the benefit of the doubt that he can sling it for the Saints at least one more season and consider him one of the best bargains on Draft Day. He's worth taking in Round 5 in standard leagues and Round 6 in PPR, and he's of course a first-round choice in two-quarterback formats.

  • Saints' Drew Brees: Talking Contract Extension
    By RotoWire Staff

    The agent for Brees (foot) and Saints' general manager Mickey Loomis have talked about a contract extension, which head coach Sean Payton thinks "will get done very easily," reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Brees' contract is not set to expire until 2017, but an extension would permit the team to lower his huge salary cap number and presumably allow the Saints to be more active in free agency. Further reading between the lines, the fact that there has been no recent mention of the torn plantar fascia he suffered at the end of last season is likely a good sign for Brees' offseason prognosis. As such, there is little reason to believe that Brees will not be healthy and ready for action when official offseason training activities begin later this spring.

  • Saints' Drew Brees: Won't need surgery
    By RotoWire Staff

    Brees (foot) is not expected to need surgery to repair the torn plantar fascia in his right heel, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports. Brees visited with Dr. Robert Anderson, who recommended that the quarterback rest for four-to-six weeks before easing back into training activities. The foot injury didn't stop Brees from finishing the season on a high note, as he threw for 300+ yards (without any interceptions) in each of his final four games. There have been some reports suggesting that the Saints might move on if Brees won't take an outright pay cut for 2016, but it's hard to imagine that any team would actually be so foolish. If anything, Brees will likely be offered an extension that allows him to take home even more money in 2016 while also reducing his cap hit. He's still one of the top quarterbacks in the league, and his 2016 outlook is brightened by the emergence of Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead.

  • Brees completed 32 of 42 passes for 323 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over Atlanta. Rumors have swirled in recent weeks that Sunday could be Brees' and head coach Sean Payton's final game in gold and black. If that's the case, Brees has put together a heck of a resume for his future employer in recent weeks, averaging 347 yards per game with a 9-0 touchdown-to-interception ratio in his final four games as the Saints went 3-1. Over the past two weeks, Brees has reportedly battled the same foot injury that has sidelined Peyton Manning. In those two games, Brees has managed to collect 735 yards and four touchdowns.

  • Saints' Drew Brees: Active Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Brees (foot) is listed as active Sunday at Atlanta, the Saints' official site reports. Despite tending to a Grade 2 tear of the plantar fascia near his right heel, Brees will step foot on the field within striking distance of the fifth 5,000-yard campaign of his noted career. While he needs 453 yards to do so, he's thrown for at least that much on one occasion this season, in a Week 8 shootout with the Giants.

  • Saints' Drew Brees: Probable for Sunday's game
