Saints | Drew Brees wants to wait on contract talks

Sat, 01 Apr 2017 14:20:31 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees said he wants to wait until after the 2017 season before talking about a new contract with the Saints because he wants to focus on the season. "I'm just so focused on this year, just being in the moment, not thinking about anything beyond this and taking every other year as it comes. But, also, we're building something here. We are building something. I feel like we have a window of opportunity," Brees said.

Fantasy Tip: Brees continues to be one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL and will have a solid receiving corps even with Bradin Cooks being traded this offseason. Brees should be considered a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues in 2017.

Saints | Drew Brees hoping to play until he's 45

Fri, 31 Mar 2017 09:56:22 -0700

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees "feels like" he'll be able to play until he's 45 years old, although he acknowledges he will need to take it one year at a time.

Fantasy Tip: For some perspective, Brees was the first pick of the second round in the 2001 draft, meaning he believes he has a shot at playing nearly a quarter of a century in the NFL. It is highly doubtful he'll get there, but he is still an elite fantasy QB1 option entering his age-38 season and will be highly sought after on the free-agent market in 2018 should the Saints be unable to sign him to an extension at some point this year.

Saints | Drew Brees not retiring anytime soon

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 19:12:37 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees plans on playing two to four more years, according to head coach Sean Payton.

Fantasy Tip: This news really isn't a surprise given Brees' comments in recent years or his continued high-level play. Brees should continue to be drafted as a top-five quarterback for the foreseeable future on a team that will need him to continue putting up big numbers.

Saints | Drew Brees has a few seasons left

Thu, 02 Feb 2017 07:43:10 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees said Thursday, Feb. 2, that he has a few seasons left in him.

Fantasy Tip: Brees had a fantastic statistical season in 2016. He completed 70 percent of his passes for 5,208 yards, 37 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. While he's seldom mentioned in the top three fantasy quarterbacks, a case could be made that he's not far from there with consistency and durability.

Saints | Drew Brees had problems vs. TB

Fri, 27 Jan 2017 17:05:15 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees went 48-for-75 for 556 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this season.

Fantasy Tip: Brees averaged 278 yards, 0.5 touchdown and 1.5 interceptions over the two games against a solid Buccaneers defense. He has thrown for at least 5,000 yards in four of the last six season and has thrown at least 30 touchdowns in each of his last nine seasons. Brees will have a terrific group of receivers to work with in 2017 and should be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Saints | Drew Brees contract not an issue

Wed, 25 Jan 2017 09:50:06 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees' contract is not an issue, according to Saints general manager Mickey Loomis. Brees is entering the final year of his contract after signing a one-year extension leading up to the 2016 NFL season. Loomis praised Brees' high level of play and said he hasn't yet thought about why approaching Brees' contract this year will be different than last year.

Fantasy Tip: Brees was a fantasy beast once again and showed no signs of slowing down. He's a strong candidate for being one of fantasy's best in 2017 as a QB1 in most conventional setups.

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.
