Saints | Drew Brees throws for 350 yards

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 22:29:23 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 29 of his 50 pass attempts for 350 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Week 17 game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: Brees struggled in early December, likely hurting some fantasy owners getting ready for their playoffs. But overall he managed 5,158 passing yards, 37 touchdowns and just 15 interceptions. Even at Age 37 he proved he is a must-have fantasy option capable of big things. That won't change into 2017.

Saints | Drew Brees keeping streak alive

Tue, 27 Dec 2016 17:32:17 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees will average at least 300 passing yards per game for the sixth straight season. If he can throw for at least 142 yards in Week 17 then he will tally his fifth season of 5,000 passing yards to boot.

Fantasy Tip: Brees has arguably been the most consistent quarterback in the NFL this decade. He throws more than anyone in the league most seasons and is a lock for QB1 territory every season as long as he is healthy. Brees should be drafted as a high-end QB1 next year, too.

Saints | Drew Brees avoids turnovers

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 23:33:09 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees threw for 299 yards and one touchdown, and he also avoided turnovers, in a 31-24 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Saturday, Dec. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Brees was picked off three times by Tampa Bay in the teams' previous meeting, which suggests New Orleans covered its weaknesses. This was a good day for Brees, who finished one yard shy of 300 and goes into the offseason as a definite QB1 choice on your roster.

Saints | Drew Brees tosses four TDs

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 21:57:02 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 37 of his 48 pass attempts for 389 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 15 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Brees snapped a two-game skid without a touchdown by posting his third 300-yard game in the past four outings while going for three or more TD passes for the eighth time this season. He remains a must-start fantasy option across the board, even though it was hard to pull the trigger on him this week with no TDs and six INTs over his past two games.

Saints | Full practice for Drew Brees

Thu, 15 Dec 2016 18:14:29 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (non-injury) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Brees can light it up at any time, but he has thrown six interceptions and no touchdowns over his last two games, making him more of a low-end QB1 in Week 15 against a solid Arizona defense.

Saints | Limited practice for Drew Brees

Wed, 14 Dec 2016 15:28:03 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (non-injury) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Brees likely was taking things easy during practice and should be fine for Week 15. He has struggled over the last two games with six interceptions and zero touchdowns during that span. He will be facing a solid Arizona Cardinals defense but could still be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in leagues.

Saints | Drew Brees hits plateau again

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 22:37:15 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 25 of his 41 pass attempts for 257 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions in the Week 14 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He reached 4,000 yards on the season for the 11th straight season with the Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Brees has back-to-back games without a touchdown pass for the first time since Week 3 through 4 of the 2009 season. Despite the power outage he remains a must-start in all fantasy leagues.

Saints | Drew Brees has three picks

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 14:51:17 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees threw 31-of-44 for 326 yards but was intercepted three times in a 28-13 loss to the Detroit Lions. It was the first time in 60 home games for the Saints that Brees did not throw a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Brees is just like any other quarterback in the NFL, due for a lackluster game now and then. This may have been the game. His overall stats were good (three-fourths of his passes completed), but the interceptions hurt. Brees is still a strong QB1 due to his yardage and touchdown numbers.

Saints | Solid game for Drew Brees

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 14:25:36 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees threw for four touchdowns and 310 yards on 28-of-36 passing in a 49-21 win over the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Brees hasn't fallen below 4,000 passing yards since 2005, and he's just shy of 3,600 yards now so Brees should reach that mark barring injury. Brees is a strong QB1 with 30 touchdowns to just eight interceptions.

Saints | Michael Thomas impressing Drew Brees

Fri, 25 Nov 2016 20:55:32 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas' growth since the start of the season has been "unbelievable," according to QB Drew Brees, and Brees said they have been able to open up the playbook for Thomas.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas has been the most consistent receiver for Saints, and he should be a high-end WR3 against the Rams in Week 12.
