  • Brees completed 26 of 35 passes for 271 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in Thursday's 20-17 loss to the Falcons. He also rushed once for two yards. Brees enjoyed a largely successful night from a fantasy perspective, firing a pair of scores to Michael Thomas and Tommylee Lewis while connecting with eight pass catchers overall. However, his sole interception came at the worst possible time, as Brees threw to Josh Hill while the latter was blanketed in the end zone, resulting in a game-sealing pick by the Falcons' Deion Jones with 1:25 remaining. The 17-year veteran did manage to complete over 70 percent of his passes for the fourth time in the last five contests, but he hasn't fired more than two touchdown passes since Week 3. He also has just three 300-yard efforts on the campaign, a modest number by his lofty standards. Brees will look to improve on both marks against a vulnerable Jets secondary in a Week 15 home tilt.

  • Brees completed 25 of 34 passes for 269 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-21 win over the Panthers. As has been the case for much of the season, Brees had an efficient day passing but was overshadowed by the Saints' prolific rushing attack. Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara combined for 145 yards and three touchdowns on 23 carries, also finishing second and third on the team in receiving yards and targets. The duo figures to continue its success Thursday night in Atlanta, though it's possible the Saints need a bit more out of Brees if the Falcons offense bounces back from a lackluster Week 13 performance.

  • Saints' Drew Brees: Stifled by Rams
    By RotoWire Staff

    Brees completed 22 of 32 passes for 246 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 26-20 loss to the Rams. He added five rushing yards on one carry. Brees wasn't able to pull off the same fourth-quarter magic he summoned during last week's come-from-behind victory over the Redskins. He wasn't particularly impressive in the box score, either, and his day would've been even worse had he not found Alvin Kamara for a 15-yard touchdown with 1:45 remaining in regulation. Part of Brees' slight downfall in the fantasy realm this season has been his decreased workload, considering his 33.9 pass attempts per game in 2017 pales in comparison to his 42.1 figure from a season ago. With the Saints having so much success on the ground -- New Orleans is averaging a league-leading 4.8 yards per rush -- that trend seems unlikely to change as the year comes to a close. Next up for Brees is a home game against a stingy Panthers secondary.

  • Brees completed 29 of 41 passes for 385 yards with two touchdowns and an interception while adding a two-yard carry in Sunday's 34-31 win against the Redskins. Brees was brilliant in this one, leading his team back from a 15-point deficit in the final three minutes of regulation by connecting on touchdown passes of three and 18 yards to Josh Hill and Alvin Kamara, respectively. The veteran quarterback's mere 15 touchdowns in 10 games are a reflection of New Orleans' extremely effective running game rather than any shortcomings on his own part. Brees is still capable of taking over games and putting up top-notch fantasy performances when he has to.

  • Saints' Drew Brees: Lethally efficient in win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Brees completed 22 of 27 passes for 263 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 30-10 win over the Buccaneers. He also gained two yards on four rushes and fumbled once. Brees averaged 9.7 yards per attempt and connected with both Alvin Kamara and Ted Ginn Jr. for his scores. The prolific signal caller posted his second consecutive game with a completion rate north of 80.0 percent while throwing multiple touchdowns for the first time since Week 6. The slight adjustment in the team's offensive philosophy that places a greater emphasis on the run has served to cap Brees' overall production, but he's still generated a 13:4 TD:INT and is averaging an impressive 276.8 yards through the air over eight contests. He'll look to continue his strong season in a road matchup against the Bills in Week 10.
