    Saints' Drew Brees: Struggles in loss to Texans

    Brees completed 25 of 44 attempts for 228 yards and an interception in Sunday's loss to the Texans. The Saints offense was held in check by the rejuvenated Texans defense, and Brees put up his second lowest yardage total of the season, while failing to connect on a touchdown pass for the first time. The veteran has struggled in the two outings since his statistical eruption in Weeks 8 and 9, with three interceptions and an average of less than 220 yards per game. Brees will attempt to get back on track in next week's home matchup with the first-place panthers.

    Saints' Drew Brees: Struggles in loss to Redskins

    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.

    Saints' Drew Brees: Stays hot in loss

    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.

    Saints' Drew Brees: Erupts for seven TDs versus Giants

    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 QB Drew Brees tosses 255 yards in win

    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 QB Drew Brees throws for 300 yards again

    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.

    Saints QB Drew Brees commits three turnovers in loss

    Saints quarterback Drew Brees completed 26 of 43 passes for 335 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Eagles, but he also threw one interception and fumbled twice. Brees connected with eight different receivers, throwing his touchdowns to Brandin Cooks and Benjamin Watson. Brees was under pressure all game long, as he was sacked five times for a loss of 43 yards, and a majority of his stats came in garbage time. His shoulder didn't seem to be much of an issue, as he attempted a number of longer throws, and with the way the line is playing, Brees could be leading a number of comeback attempts this season, which will only increase his passing tries and yards.

    Saints QB Drew Brees no longer on injury report

    Saints quarterback Drew Brees wasn't listed on the injury report Wednesday, ESPN.com reports. According to Brees, he was able to make all throws in practice, which reflects his performance against the Cowboys on Sunday night. In Week 5, he'll look for his third 300-yard outing of 2015 against an Eagles defense that has surrendered 284.8 yards per game and six passing touchdowns to quarterbacks this season.

    Saints TE Ben Watson snags only three in Sunday win

    Saints tight end Benjamin Watson caught three passes on three targets for 30 yards in the Week 4 win over the Cowboys. Watson participated in 64 of 73 offensive snaps (88 percent), according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, compared to 34 snaps for backups tight end Josh Hill. It was Hill, however, who hauled in a 3-yard touchdown pass from Drew Brees in the first quarter. The veteran has consistently out-snapped and out-produced Hill, but with only 12 total catches for 103 yards through the first four weeks, he has not proven to be much of a Fantasy option.

    Saints QB Drew Brees (shoulder) is active for Sunday

    Saints quarterback Drew Brees (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Larry Holder of the NOLA.com reports. As expected, Brees will return from a one-game absence to face a Dallas defense that was shredded by the Falcons in Week 3. The New Orleans offense is off to a slow start, but the unit did play pretty well with Josh McCown under center in last week's 27-22 loss to the Panthers. Though he may still have a bit of soreness bothering him, Brees has reportedly made excellent progress since last week.
