Drew Brees has Jekyll-Hyde game in defeat to Browns
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Saints quarterback Drew Brees arrived in Cleveland with a meager 67.4 rating lifetime against the Browns and a 95.7 mark against all other competition. Those struggles continued Sunday afternoon - at least for a while.

Brees had managed to complete just half of his 10 passes for 13 yards one possession into the second quarter before consistently finding prolific tight end Jimmy Graham and bolstering his numbers. He finished 27 of 40 for 237 yards, two touchdowns to Graham and a costly pick-six by safety Tashaun Gipson off an overthrow in the second quarter.

He took advantage of single coverage on Graham late in the that quarter and beyond. Brees threw a 9-yard touchdown to his favorite target with three seconds remaining in the half to cut the deficit to 16-10 and found him again for a 1-yarder six minutes into the third to give his team its first lead.

Brees will attempt to guide the Saints to their first win in Week 3 against visiting Minnesota.

Drew Brees concedes scores to running game
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Saints quarterback Drew Brees had a mostly typical performance Week 1 at Atlanta. He spread the ball to seven different receivers, completing 29 of 42 passes for 333 yards to give him 300-plus yards in three of his last four games against the Falcons. And as usual, he did a fine job leading his team to the end zone. The Saints scored 34 points in the loss.

But because so many of their pass-catchers were halted inside the 5-yard line, Brees didn't get credit for many of those touchdowns himself. Instead, he handed the ball off to Mark Ingram for two, both 3-yarders, and Khiry Robinson for one, a 2-yarder. Brees' lone touchdown pass could have easily been another run. It was only a 3-yarder to rookie Brandin Cooks.

Still, the only low point for Brees was an interception in the end zone late in the third quarter, and even then, defensive back Robert McClain made a great play on the ball.

Brees, who has averaged 42.7 touchdown passes over the last three seasons, will try to find the end zone more Week 2 at the Browns, who gave up 365 passing yards to Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in Week 1.

Drew Brees looks to light up Falcons
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Saints quarterback Drew Brees' two games against the Falcons last year weren't his best two of the 2013 season, but they were what you've come to expect from Brees. He threw to touchdown passes in each and only one interception total, averaging 317.5 yards through the air.

Given the way the Falcons defended the pass last year, those numbers could have been even better. Atlanta ranked 21st against the pass, allowing 243.6 yards per game, and gave up the second-highest quarterback rating of 102.4. They surrendered the fourth-most Fantasy points to quarterbacks.

While they made some changes to their defense this offseason, switching to a 3-4 scheme and adding Dwight Lowery at free safety, neither will be enough to slow down Brees. He's a must-start every week in Fantasy, but particularly with a matchup like this one.

Drew Brees fires two touchdowns in dress rehearsal game

He added two touchdowns and no interceptions, registering a 127.2 passer rating.

Drew Brees says he's still not 100 percent
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Saints quarterback Drew Brees returned to a full practice Sunday after nursing a strained oblique. He'll make his preseason debut Saturday at Indianapolis.

"I feel good," Brees said. "[Sunday] was my first day to kind of be full go. I’ve been taking it very slow, very deliberate – no use in rushing something that could get worse. So I wanted to make sure that it was all good. I’m still not 100 percent but I hope that by Saturday I am."
