Mon, 12 Mar 2018 13:15:19 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Brees is expected to return to the Saints, but the Vikings contacted him in case the two sides are not able to reach a deal. Brees has been one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL over the last several years and will be No. 1 fantasy quarterback in 2018.

Saints | Meeting for Drew Brees deal expected soon

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 21:19:41 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees' representatives are expected to meet with the team at the upcoming NFL Scouting Combine "to try to hammer out what is potentially a short-term deal," according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. It is expected that the two sides find "common ground" on deal that will fall between $20 million and $25 million annually.

Fantasy Tip: Brees has already stated his desired to remain with the Saints, whom he wants to end his career with, so this isn't a surprise. The future Hall-of-Fame quarterback is still very much at the top of his game after registering a 103.9 passer rating last season. He ultimately finished with 4,334 yards, 23 touchdowns and just eight interceptions, while completing an NFL-record 72 percent of his passes. He's a no-brainer QB1.

Saints | Drew Brees has hard deadline

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 07:48:39 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees would become an unrestricted free agent March 14 if he doesn't reach a new deal. The final three contract years would void at the start of the new league year, and the Saints will have to pay $18 million worth of signing bonus prorated on this year's salary cap in addition to whatever salary they end up paying Brees for 2018.

Fantasy Tip: Brees' touchdowns took a big hit from 37 to 23 due to the running-game surge. He also threw for almost 1,000 fewer yards. You can expect those numbers to improve a little bit, and he falls right on the edge of that upper-tier fantasy quarterback.

Saints | Drew Brees to sign short-term deal?

Wed, 31 Jan 2018 23:41:06 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees is expected to sign a one- or two-year contract to return to the team, in the opinion of ESPN's Mike Triplett.

Fantasy Tip: Brees is apparently cut from the same cloth as Tom Brady and willing to keep his contact demands reasonable in an attempt to win another ring. Now 39, Brees remains one of the NFL's top quarterbacks, though the emergence of a powerful running game led to his worst statistical showing since he left San Diego after the 2005 season. He looks like more of a midrange QB1 moving forward.

Saints | Drew Brees will not test market

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 13:24:08 -0800

New Orleans Saints impending free-agent QB Drew Brees said he does not plan to test the free-agent market. "I'll be [in New Orleans] as long as they'll have me, hopefully," Brees said.

Fantasy Tip: Brees' love and passion for the Saints and the city of New Orleans is well documented and well founded. Even at 39 years old, Brees is one of the most elite quarterbacks in the NFL. He remains a QB1 heading into 2018.

Saints | Drew Brees expects to be re-signed

Mon, 15 Jan 2018 22:08:00 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees said following the team's Divisional Round loss opposite the Minnesota Vikings Sunday, Jan. 14, that he expects the club to re-sign him. He believes the Saints are entering "a window of time here where we can really make a run at it" and expects to be part of that effort, adding that he is "excited for the future of Saints football."

Fantasy Tip: Brees is coming off yet another masterful campaign that saw him take back the NFL record for highest completion percentage in a single season (72 percent), en route to throwing for 4,334 yards, 23 touchdowns and only eight interceptions while leading the Saints to their first playoff berth in four years. There's no question the future Hall-of-Famer has something left in the tank, and thus, he'll remain one of the top QB1 options going into next year.

Saints | Drew Brees tosses three TDs

Sun, 14 Jan 2018 17:31:54 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 25 of his 40 pass attempts for 294 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game loss against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Jan. 14.

Fantasy Tip: It was a crushing loss or Brees and the Saints, who went ahead in the final second only to be beaten on a crazy touchdown on the game's final play. Brees proved this season he still has plenty left in the tank and remains a QB1 in all fantasy formats heading into 2018.

Saints | Drew Brees moving up career playoff list

Wed, 10 Jan 2018 17:34:38 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees recorded his seventh 300-yard passing effort in the playoffs for his career in the team's Wild Card Round game Sunday, Jan. 7, passing retired QBs Kurt Warner, Joe Montana and Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers for the third-most such performances all-time. He still trails retired QB Peyton Manning (nine) and New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (12) in that category.

Fantasy Tip: Brees was outstanding in last week's win over the Panthers, dicing up their defense for 376 yards and a pair of touchdowns while completing nearly 70 percent of his passes. Of course, he'll have a tougher matchup this time around, not just due to it be on the road, but also because he'll be squaring off with the defense that was ranked No. 1 during the regular season. Even so, look for Brees to still churn out a worthwhile performance for owners.

Saints | Drew Brees leads team to WC win

Sun, 07 Jan 2018 17:18:32 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 23-of-33 passes for 376 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the NFC Wild Card Game against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, Jan. 7.

Fantasy Tip: The Saints had success on the ground this season, with Brees doing less and less, but this was all about the quarterback with Carolina stacking the box trying to stop the run game. Brees and the Saints move on to face the Minnesota Vikings on the road next weekend.

Saints | Drew Brees thrives in postseason action

Wed, 03 Jan 2018 19:14:40 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees has a quarterback rating of 100.7 in 11 career playoff games. Overall, he's completed 306-of-464 passes (66 percent) for 3,539 yards, while also throwing for 24 touchdowns compared to only six interceptions in his postseason career.

Fantasy Tip: Clearly, Brees has been tremendous in playoff outings throughout his brilliant career, and with this track record, the future Hall-of-Famer looks like the best QB1 option to roll with in DFS formats on Wild Card weekend. While he might be the most expensive player at his position, Brees' consistency in January and beyond merits the investment.

Sun, 31 Dec 2017 18:48:18 -0800

Saints | Drew Brees reaches 70,000-yard plateau

Wed, 27 Dec 2017 20:02:36 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees became the third quarterback in NFL history -- joining retired QBs Peyton Manning (71,940) and Brett Favre (71,838) -- to throw for 70,000 passing yards in his career after his performance in the club's Week 16 game Sunday, Dec. 24, versus the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: Remarkably, Brees has thrown for at least 4,000 yards in all 12 of his years with the Saints, and based on how good he's looked this season, it's safe to say he still has more left in the tank. As a result, he'll still be a higher-end QB1 next year when he remains under center in New Orleans.

Saints | Mediocre showing from Drew Brees

Sun, 24 Dec 2017 18:52:38 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 21 of his 28 pass attempts for 239 yards, a touchdown and an interception in a 23-13 win over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: It was the third time in the last five games that Brees has managed just a single touchdown, and it was his third straight game with an interception. He continues to complete passes at an incredible clip, but the Saints' balanced offense keeps Brees at the back of the QB1 pack.

Saints | Drew Brees tosses two more TDs

Sun, 17 Dec 2017 18:09:54 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 26 of his 36 pass attempts for 285 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Week 15 game against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Tip: Brees has managed at least two touchdowns in three of his past five games, but oddly enough he hasn't had a three-touchdown game since Week 3 in Carolina. He is also without a 300-yard passing game in each of the past four games. The Saints are winning, and relying on a more balanced attack. Brees is still a decent low-end QB1 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 16 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Saints | Drew Brees fires two TD passes

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 21:53:20 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees went 26-for-35 for 271 yards, two touchdowns and an interception against the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Brees' first 34 passes were just fine, but that 35th one was a disaster, handing the game to Atlanta when the Saints were in position to at least tie it late in regulation. Still, his numbers were on par with what we've been seeing out of the veteran for most of the past seven games. While he's still a QB1, he's no longer the elite fantasy QB he's been for most of his time in the Big Easy.

Saints | Drew Brees throw for 385

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 18:51:29 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 29 of 41 passes for 385 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in a 34-31 win over the Washington Redskins in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: A dominant running game has hurt his production this year, but Brees is clearly still able to step up when his team needs him. Unfortunately, his big games are likely to be few and far between with the way New Orleans is running the ball.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
