Saints | Drew Brees tosses two touchdowns

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 17:57:15 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 21 of his 31 pass attempts for 186 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 7 game against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: It wasn't a great game for Brees, especially with a 52-38 score on the board, but there were three defensive touchdowns from the Saints to prop up their score. Mark Ingram rushed for two scores, so that's why Brees only did what he did. He'll look for better results in Week 7 in Green Bay, but he will be battling Brett Hundley and not Aaron Rodgers. The Saints could use a run-heavy offense if they grab a lead against the inexperienced quarterback.

Saints | Drew Brees has so-so performance

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 09:52:04 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees went 29-for-41 for 268 passing yards in Week 4's victory over the Miami Dolphins, with two touchdowns and no interceptions.

Fantasy Tip: Even though Brees' numbers were not eye-popping, it is important to note that he recovered nicely from a slow start on offense, with the Saints only able to score a field goal in the first half. New Orleans has a bye next week but Brees should continue to be viewed as a QB1 in all fantasy formats when they return to action versus the Detroit Lions in Week 6.

Dolphins | Byron Maxwell benched

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 05:41:25 -0700

Miami Dolphins CB Byron Maxwell is inactive for Week 4 after being benched. The Dolphins will start rookie CB Cordrea Tankersley, who was inactive the first two games, because veteran CB Alterraun Verner (hamstring) is not 100 percent.

Fantasy Tip: All of this chaos creates chemistry issues for Drew Brees to exploit. Miami could be in big trouble in the secondary if the star passer is able to exploit a rookie corner making his first pro starter. We'll side with the vet.

Saints | Drew Brees tosses three TDs in win

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 13:39:32 -0700

New Orleans QB Drew Brees completed 22 of his 29 pass attempts for 220 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 3 win at Carolina.

Fantasy Tip: Brees has improved every week this season, at least in the touchdown department, as he has now six TDs and no interceptions through three outings while averaging 289.0 yards per game. Needless to stay, any discussion of the demise of Brees was certainly exaggerated. He'll look to remain mistake-free in Week 4 against the Miami Dolphins in London next week.

Saints | Drew Brees throws for 356 yards

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 18:57:54 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 27 of his 45 pass attempts for 356 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 2 against the Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Brees is averaging 328.5 passing yards per game with a total of three touchdowns and no interceptions. He could see a decrease in production in Week 3 in his first game outdoors in 2017 when the Saints visit the Panthers. However, he remains an obvious must-start fantasy option whether his team is winning or losing.

Saints | Drew Brees churns out nice Week 1 effort

Mon, 11 Sep 2017 20:06:51 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees had a solid season debut Monday, Sept. 11, against the Minnesota Vikings, completing 27-of-37 passes for 291 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: His fantasy owners will gladly take this performance after Brees tallied only 71 yards before halftime, while his Saints had a hard time finding success in the red zone. They eventually did find pay dirt on the club's last possession of the game, solidifying Brees' upper echelon effort in the defeat. Owners can certainly fire him up in Week 2 with the upmost confidence, as he'll likely be in a home shootout with the Patriots.

Saints | Drew Brees not worried about offense

Sat, 09 Sep 2017 20:46:09 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees expects the offense to keep "chugging along" this year despite some changes to the receiving corps.

Fantasy Tip: Brees faces a solid Minnesota secondary in Week 1, but as the engine that drives the Saints' high-powered passing attack, he is a plug-and-play QB1 against any opponent.

Saints | Drew Brees sits out

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 20:26:56 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees was held out of the preseason game against the Los Angeles Chargers Sunday, Aug. 20. QB Chase Daniel started and completed seven of his 12 pass attempts for 80 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Brees isn't getting any younger, but he can roll out of bed and put together a 5,000-yard season. Next to Aaron Rodgers, Brees probably has the safest floor of any QB1.

Saints | Drew Brees chasing completions record

Mon, 03 Jul 2017 14:19:48 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees is 465 completions away from breaking former NFL QB Brett Favre's all-time completions record of 6,300. Brees is capable of breaking the record in 2017 as he has completed more than 465 passes in one season on two different occasions (2011 and 2016).

Fantasy Tip: Brees will have more than his fair share of NFL records if he can stay healthy for the next couple seasons. He's arguably the most consistent fantasy quarterback in NFL history and should be one of the first quarterbacks taken in drafts again this year.
