Saints' Drew Brees: Modest numbers despite win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brees completed 24 of 31 passes for 201 yards with a touchdown and an interception in the Saints' 28-14 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday. He also lost a yard on three carries and lost a fumble.

Brees churned out yet another pedestrian stat line, but a combination of defense and an effective enough rushing attack helped lead the Saints to victory anyhow. The perennial Pro Bowler did hit Zach Line for his one touchdown pass, and he reestablished his prolific connection with Michael Thomas to the tune of 11 completions for 98 yards. Brees has now failed to throw multiple touchdown passes in back-to-back games for the first time this season, a matter he'll look to rectify against the Panthers in a Week 15 Monday night divisional showdown.

Saints' Drew Brees: Stymied in road loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brees completed 18 of 28 passes for 127 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the Saints' 13-10 loss to the Cowboys on Thursday. He also rushed once for two yards and fumbled once but recovered.

It was a historically poor night for the future Hall of Famer, whose first-half yardage total was the lowest of his career. Brees was seemingly kept off balance throughout the night by a suffocating Cowboys defense that limited him to his lowest YPA (4.5) of the season. Even his normally prolific connection with Michael Thomas was considerably muted, as the Pro Bowl receiver managed just 40 yards on five receptions. Brees did look like himself on a 30-yard scoring strike to Keith Kirkwood late in the third quarter, but he ultimately sunk any chances the Saints may have had with a back-breaking interception at the 2:08 mark of the fourth quarter. Brees will look to take his frustrations out on a vulnerable Buccaneers secondary in a Week 14 matchup on Dec. 9.

Saints' Drew Brees: Yet another four-touchdown outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brees completed 15 of 22 attempts for 171 yards, four touchdowns and one interception during Thursday's 31-17 victory over Atlanta.

Brees committed his second turnover of 2018, but remains in possession of an absurd 32:2 touchdown:interception ratio as he marches towards a potential MVP award (amazingly, would be the first of his prolific 18-year career). Atlanta did an admirable job in containing Brees to 7.8 yards per attempt, but he connected on two short touchdown passes (from five and 12 yards out to Keith Kirkwood and Austin Carr), as well as two more from outside the red zone (20-plus yard hookups with Tommylee Lewis and Dan Arnold). It's a much more prohibitive matchup forthcoming in Week 13, opposing a Cowboys defense that's allowed the 11th-fewest points per game to quarterbacks in standard scoring.

Saints' Drew Brees: Throws four touchdowns in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brees completed 22 of 30 passing attempts for 363 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday's 48-7 victory over the Eagles.

The Saints were held to a field goal on their first drive of the day, but Brees was unstoppable after that, leading six touchdown drives on the way to a blowout win over the defending Super Bowl champs. The 39-year-old made beautiful throws the whole contest, but perhaps none was better than his last touchdown throw of the game that hit Alvin Kamara in stride down the sideline for a 37-yard catch-and-run. Brees and the league's hottest offense have an extremely favorable schedule down the stretch and throughout the fantasy playoffs starting with a Thanksgiving home game against Atlanta in Week 12.

Saints' Drew Brees: Efficient in Bengal Beatdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brees completed 22 of 25 passes for 265 yards and three touchdowns and added three yards and a touchdown on two carries during Sunday's 51-14 win over Cincinnati.

After picking the Bengals apart for much of the afternoon, Brees got in on the action himself in the final minutes of the third quarter, leaping over the pile for a one-yard touchdown run. It was his third of the season, already tying a career high for rushing touchdowns in a season. In the passing game, there was concern as to how New Orleans' offense could keep pace without much depth at receiver, free-agent acquisition Dez Bryant's (Achilles) season ending about as quickly as it started. The Saints and Brees look like they'll continue marching along just fine with a bonafide WR1 in Michael Thomas and the talented pass-catching duo of Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram in the backfield. The two combined for seven catches for 104 yards and a touchdown on Sunday. Brees takes on a struggling Philly pass defense next Sunday with an other-worldly 21:1 touchdown:interception ratio on the season and multiple touchdowns and no interceptions in seven of nine games.
