Saints' Drew Brees: Comes through in Week 2 battle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brees completed 28 of 35 passes for 243 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Saints' 21-18 win over the Browns on Sunday. He also lost a yard on his sole rush.

Brees helped the Saints pull out a crucial early-season win by directing a trio of fourth-quarter scoring marches. After being stymied by a surprisingly stingy Browns defense through three quarters. the future Hall of Famer led a nine-play, 66-yard drive early in the fourth period that culminated in a two-yard touchdown toss to Michael Thomas. Brees then finished a brief four-play, 18-yard series with a five-yard scoring dart to Thomas, and spearheaded a six-play, 49-yard drive capped off by a Will Lutz 44-yard go-ahead field goal. Brees now has five touchdowns versus no interceptions through two games, and he's shown an even better connection with Thomas that could have been expected. He'll look to continue New Orleans' winning ways versus the Falcons in Week 3.

Saints' Drew Brees: Tosses interception in preseason debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brees completed seven of nine passes for 59 yards and one interception during Saturday's preseason game against the Chargers. He also completed a two-point conversion attempt.

Making his preseason debut, Brees wasn't asked to do much and was ultimately subbed from the game before the second quarter ended. While it obviously would've been nice to see a more productive stat line from him, there's no reason to worry about the veteran signal caller who's coming off a 2017 season in which he set the all-time record for completion percentage (72 percent). As we saw last year, the only real concern with him remains the Saints' apparent shift to a rushing-oriented offensive attack.

Saints' Drew Brees: Doesn't play in second preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brees did not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Cardinals.

Brees did not play in the Saints' first preseason game either, but there's no reason for concern here. Brees has been a full participant in practice, and there's simply no need for the veteran to risk injury in a meaningless exhibition. As a result of a reinvigorated running game, last year the future Hall of Fame quarterback attempted his fewest passes in a full season since 2005. Brees nevertheless remains locked in as one of the best signal-caller options in fantasy, even as he enters his 18th NFL season.

Saints' Drew Brees: Reaches terms for two years
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brees and the Saints have reached agreement on a two-year, $50 million contract that includes $27 million guaranteed, Jane Slater of NFL Network reports.

Brees could get more money on the open market, but he reportedly has no interest in switching teams for the final few years of his career. Understandably so, given that he's a living legend in New Orleans, where the current roster boasts an excellent supporting cast that includes Michael Thomas, Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram. The Saints also are expected to seek an upgrade at tight end now that they don't have to worry about a dead cap charge from Brees' last contract accelerating to 2018. A reunion with Jimmy Graham isn't out of the question.

Saints' Drew Brees: Nearing agreement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brees and the Saints are expected to reach agreement on a two-year contract Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Brees isn't believed to have any interest in leaving New Orleans, but he nonetheless has some leverage thanks to the structure of his last contract, which would leave the Saints with a dead cap charge of $18 million for 2018 if they don't sign the quarterback to a new deal before free agency opens at 4:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday. All signs point to Brees staying put, even if negotiations have been somewhat tenuous.
