  • 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.

  • Brees completed 18 of 25 pass attempts for 184 yards Sunday against the Bills. He also ran for six yards and a touchdown on two carries. Brees simply played the roll of game manager in this one, taking a back seat to a rushing attack that churned out 298 yards on the ground. He got in on the action himself, scoring on a seven-yard scamper in the third quarter that afforded him some semblance of fantasy utility. The emergence of the running game has made Brees a bit more prone to lean weeks of late, but he remains a threat to post big numbers on a game-by-game basis and will continue as such next week against the Redskins.

  • 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.

  • Brees completed 23 of 28 passes for 299 yards without a touchdown or turnover in Sunday's 20-12 win over the Bears. Brees found out the hard way how Chicago had been able to win its previous two games despite minimum contributions from its passing game, as the Bears' playmaking defense held him without a touchdown for the first time this season. The veteran quarterback still led his team to a pair of first-half rushing scores, setting the first one up with a 54-yard completion to Brandon Coleman. Brees also became the third quarterback in NFL history to complete 6,000 passes when he hit Michael Thomas for 23 yards in the fourth quarter, joining Brett Favre (6,300) and Peyton Manning (6,125).

  • Saints' Drew Brees: Held to 186 yards in win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Brees completed 21 of 31 passes for 186 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's 52-38 win over Detroit. You'd have to go back to Week 12 of the 2013 season for the last time Brees was held under 200 passing yards. The fact the Saints defense generated two pick-sixes and the team was in position for much of the second half to try to run out the clock can be seen as contributing factors. Brees himself threw an ugly pick-six late Sunday and snapped his four-game streak without an interception to start the season. Expect Brees to return to his more typical statistical output next week against a reeling Packers squad.
