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.

Saints | Drew Brees readies for Carolina

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 21:32:00 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees will face the Carolina Panthers in Week 11 Thursday, Nov. 17. Brees has passed for 300 or more yards with three or more touchdowns in four of his past five games, including a season-high 465 yards and four touchdowns in Week 6 in the first meeting with the Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Brees is on a serious roll, and he has jelled nicely with rookie Michael Thomas and Brandin Cooks. The Saints pass game is just as formidable as ever, and going outside on the grass shouldn't be a concern. In his last game outdoors Brees threw for 323 yards and three touchdowns in Week 9 at San Francisco.

Saints | Drew Brees excels versus Panthers

Tue, 15 Nov 2016 15:56:35 -0800

While New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees only has a 10-10 career record against the Carolina Panthers, he has averaged nearly 300 yards and nearly two touchdowns per game.

Fantasy Tip: Brees is one of the most prolific passers in NFL history, but he has played noticeably better at home than on the road. The Saints are on the road this week, but the Panthers pass defense has been subpar all year. Don't shy away from Brees on Thursday night.

New Orleans Saints WR Drew Brees finished with 303 yards on 21-for-29 passing, along with three touchdowns and two interceptions, in a 25-23 loss to the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: It was another good day for Brees, who remains a solid QB1 option for fantasy owners.

Saints | Drew Brees tosses three more TDs

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 22:14:55 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 28 of his 39 pass attempts for 323 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 9 game against the San Francisco 49ers. He is just one TD short of becoming the third player to throw 450 touchdowns, joining QBs Peyton Manning and Brett Favre.

Fantasy Tip: Brees has three or more touchdowns in three of the past four games, and he has two or more TDs in six of his eight outings while going for 300-plus yards in five of his games. He is a must-start fantasy option in Week 10 despite facing the NFL's top-ranked pass defense when the Denver Broncos come calling.

Saints | Mediocre stats for Drew Brees

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 17:54:49 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 27 of his 35 pass attempts for 265 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 8 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Brees did about as well as expected facing the league's ninth-ranked pass defense. The San Francisco 49ers yield even fewer yards per game, and they are the opponent up next. Still, you start Brees in fantasy leagues whenever he is active.

Saints | Drew Brees has another big line

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 19:30:02 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 37 of his 48 pass attempts for 367 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in the Week 7 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Brees had four 300-yard passing games, but this was his first on the road and outdoors this season. He has two or more touchdowns in five of his six outings and remains a must-start fantasy option in all leagues. He'll be back home again in Week 8, but the Seattle Seahawks and their strong pass defense come calling.

Saints | Drew Brees goes over 400 yards

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 17:20:19 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 34 of his 49 pass attempts for 465 yards, four touchdowns and one interception in the Week 6 game against the Carolina Panthers. It was his 15th-career 400-yard passing game in the regular season, breaking a tie with retired QB Peyton Manning.

Fantasy Tip: The 400-yard game was the second of the season for Brees, who has thrown for at least 376 yards in three of his five games with three or more touchdowns in three outings, too. The Saints travel to Kansas City in Week 7.

Saints | Drew Brees has big night in loss

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 21:46:37 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 36 of his 54 pass attempts for 376 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the Week 3 game against the Atlanta Falcons Monday, Sept. 26. Since 2012 Brees has 19 losses in game with 300 or more yards, most in the NFL. His interception snapped a streak of 305 passes without an INT, the fourth-longest streak in NFL history without a pick.

Fantasy Tip: The Saints are 0-3, but Brees is still putting up big numbers and is doing his part. He remains a top-notch fantasy option across the board in all formats heading into Week 4.
