Saints | Drew Brees wants to stay in Big Easy

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 10:53:17 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees has no intention of talking to the team about his expiring contract during the season, but he reiterated his desire to finish his career in New Orleans during a recent appearance on XTRA 1360 AM. "I feel like we've got a great opportunity ahead of us and I don't plan on leaving New Orleans ever. … I have not approached them about any contract. We just have a great understanding here. Listen, we're going to go through this season and we'll revisit it in the offseason. For right now, I'm in the moment," Brees said.

Fantasy Tip: The Saints have arguably their most complete team since their Super Bowl run in 2009, which may throw a wrench into his negotiating posture this offseason since the team is relying on him less than it ever has. With that said, Brees still leads the league in completion percentage and is fourth in quarterback rating. He's still a QB1 for fantasy purposes, but it appears this will be the first time since he arrived in New Orleans in 2006 that he won't be a top-six fantasy signal-caller.

Saints | Drew Brees turns it over to runners

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 16:17:41 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 18 of his 25 pass attempts for 184 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 10 against the Buffalo Bills. He did have a rare rushing touchdown, however.

Fantasy Tip: Brees handed the ball off and let Mark Ingram (131 yards, three TDs) and Alvin Kamara (106 yards, TD) do all the work. The Saints totaled six rushing scores and didn't need Brees and his aerial heroics.

Saints | Drew Brees totals 263 yards, two TDs

Sun, 05 Nov 2017 17:04:27 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 22 of his 27 pass attempts for 263 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 9 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Brees bounced back after his streak with at least one touchdown pass was ended last weekend against Chicago. Still, he has accounted for two or more total TDs in six of the past seven outings and he remains a must-start across all fantasy formats.

Saints | Drew Brees making more history

Wed, 01 Nov 2017 20:01:21 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees became the third player in NFL history during the team's Week 8 game Sunday, Oct. 29, to complete 6,000 passes, joining retired QBs Brett Favre (6,300) and Peyton Manning (6,125) as the only ones to do so.

Fantasy Tip: Although he's coming off a rare game in which he did not throw for a touchdown, Brees is having yet another stellar showing in 2017 to keep him amongst the upper echelon of fantasy football quarterbacks. With the Saints having their best performance as a team in years, expect Brees to continue his strong play while vying for the club's first playoff berth in four seasons.

Saints | Drew Brees throws for 299 yards

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 14:40:41 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees went 23-for-28 for 299 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions against the Chicago Bears in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Brees failed to throw a touchdown pass in a game for the first time this season but should have more success next week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He is a weekly starting option as long as he is healthy.

Saints | Drew Brees has up and down performance

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 14:12:19 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees went 27-for-38 for 331 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions against the Green Bay Packers in Week 7. He also rushed for a touchdown during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Brees threw for at least 300 yards for only the second time this season but has 11 touchdowns and four interceptions in six games. He will be facing a solid Chicago Bears defense next but should be a weekly starting option as long as he is healthy.

Saints | Drew Brees owns Packers over career

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 17:34:22 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees has posted a 114.3 QB Rating over his career against the Green Bay Packers, his second-highest such mark versus any opponent whom he's faced more than four times. In six career games opposite the Packers, Brees has completed 168-of-250 passes (67.2 percent) for 2,215 yards, to go with 17 touchdowns compared to only two interceptions.

Fantasy Tip: Brees is in his usual trademark groove right now, en route to getting his club in first place in the NFC South, and even though he'll be working away from the Superdome this weekend, his splits against the Packers have him set up to make his fantasy owners very, very happy in Week 7. As a result, he'll also likely be worth his high price tag in DFS formats, too. Fire him up everywhere.

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.
