Player Outlook

Consistency. Reliability. Productivity. Not many players in the Fantasy Football universe can be described using these words, but Drew Brees certainly can. He's finished as a Top 6 quarterback in Fantasy in 11 straight seasons, landing the No. 3 spot in 2016. He's thrown for at least 4,850 yards in each of his last six campaigns, topping 5,000 yards in four of them. As for touchdowns, Brees has thrown at least 32 in nine straight seasons. The knock on Brees is that he's getting old and doesn't have Brandin Cooks to throw to anymore. The Saints will replace Cooks' deep speed with Ted Ginn (who's actually played fairly well the past two seasons), and judging by all the stats you just read, Brees doesn't seem to be slowing down at all. With 10 indoor games and not a lot of scathing secondaries in his future, Brees should put together another solid season. Look for him after Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady get drafted in your leagues, around 40th overall in standard leagues and 50th overall in PPR formats.

  • Saints' Drew Brees: Unlikely to play Thursday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Brees is unlikely to play in Thursday's preseason game at Cleveland, John DeShazier of the Saints' official site reports. As is often the case in the preseason, teams will cap the reps of established veterans. For the Saints, Brees and newcomer Adrian Peterson are expected to stick to the sideline. If Brees indeed sits out, backup quarterback Chase Daniel will receive the initial reps with the offense before giving way to Garrett Grayson and Ryan Nassib.

  • Head coach Sean Payton said Brees plans to play for two-to-four more seasons, NOLA.com's Larry Holder reports. Brees celebrated his 38th birthday two weeks after the end of the 2016 season -- a campaign in which he threw for 5,208 yards and 37 touchdowns. There was talk of his decline early in the 2015 season, but he 's since proven beyond a shadow of doubt that he's still one of the best quarterbacks in the league. As always, the Saints are looking to rebuild their defense in the offseason, hoping to put a competitive roster around Brees for the first time since 2013. The team did trade wideout Brandin Cooks to the Patriots, but with Michael Thomas and Willie Snead joined out wide by free-agent signing Tedd Ginn, the 38-year-old quarterback shouldn't have any trouble finding open receivers. He should have at least two or three more years left in the tank, assuming he wants to keep playing.

  • Brees completed 29 of 50 passes for 350 yards, two touchdowns and a pick in Sunday's loss to Atlanta. Despite a back-breaking pick in the end zone midway through the fourth quarter, Brees led the Saints' frantic fourth-quarter comeback rally with touchdown strikes to Michael Thomas and Travis Cadet. It wasn't enough and the Saints end the season with another so-so record: not quite bad enough to rebuild, but not good enough in an improving NFC South. The popular answer to the Saints' woes in recent off-seasons has been to point the finger at Sean Payton and Brees and, though the veteran pitched some ugly performances down the stretch, he actually had his best statistical season in several years. Brees managed to top 5,000 yards passing and 35 touchdowns for the first time since 2013.

  • Brees completed 23 of 34 passes for 299 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions in Saturday's 31-24 win over the Bucs. He also gained a yard on four rushes. Brees bounced back from a sub-par, three-interception outing against this same Bucs squad two weeks prior, coming within a yard of his fourth 300-yard outing in the last five games. He was effective downfield when called upon, and otherwise let Mark Ingram carry a sizable load of the offense on his shoulders. Factoring in Saturday's production, Brees needs just 142 yards passing in Week 17 versus the Falcons for the fifth 5,000-yard season of his career.

  • Saints' Drew Brees: Shreds the Cardinals
    By RotoWire Staff

    Brees completed 37 of 48 passes for 388 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday's wild 48-41 win at Arizona. Brees lost a fumble in the second quarter that was returned for a touchdown. That was practically his only mistake, especially in the first half, when he completed 16 of 20 passes for 188 yards and three touchdowns, including a pretty 65-yard score to Brandin Cooks. After not throwing a single touchdown pass in two straight games, Brees more than made up for it Sunday, matching his season high in scoring strikes. He'll look to keep it going next week at home against Tampa Bay.
