Saints | Garrett Grayson happy with performance

Fri, 22 May 2015 20:29:07 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Garrett Grayson said he felt he performed well in rookie minicamp. "Obviously I made some rookie mistakes, some simple things," he said. "It just takes time in understanding the playbook. Once things get going and I fully understand, I won't make those mistakes. I feel like I threw the ball well. I made the proper checks, things like that. I was really happy with the weekend."

Saints | Drew Brees wants long career

Fri, 22 May 2015 11:15:55 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees said he may not be able to play until he is 45 years old like he previously stated but wants to play as long as he can.

Fantasy Tip: Brees likely has a few more good years left in his career and will have some solid weapons to work with even though he lost Jimmy Graham. Brees should be a starting quarterback most weeks next season but may be risky against certain matchups.

Saints | Drew Brees discusses his future

Thu, 21 May 2015 07:25:06 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees is entering his age-36 season and said playing until he is 45 years old might be "overzealous." Brees noted that "45 is a long way away." He added, "At different stages in your career, I just think you kind of reassess and reevaluate and try to set goals moving forward. It was just kind of one of those moments last year where my body felt great, felt like I had a great system in place with my training and my recovery and my diet and everything, gosh, why not?"

Fantasy Tip: Rarely does an NFL quarterback survive that long, but Warren Moon playing at a fairly high level until he was 44 is probably the most recent example of it being possible. At 36, with his fantasy value likely in decline, Brees shouldn't be more than a year-to-year consideration as long as he is playing well.

Saints | Josh Hill projected to start for Saints

Wed, 20 May 2015 12:21:24 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Josh Hill is slated as the starting tight end this season with TE Jimmy Graham now in Seattle. TE Benjamin Watson could give Hill a run for his money, however.

Fantasy Tip: Hill only caught 14 passes in 2014, but five of those were for touchdowns. He should be a mainstay in the Saints' red zone offense even if he doesn't produce a ton between the 20s. Even if he does start, he's still in TE2 territory.

Saints | Drew Brees not worried

Tue, 19 May 2015 09:29:41 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees said he is unconcerned that the Saints drafted QB Garrett Grayson, his heir apparent, in the third round of this year's draft. "I'm worried about winning a championship," Brees said. "Trying to be the best player I can be, trying to be the leader that I can be, that applies to how can I help get the best out of everyone who is on the team."

Fantasy Tip: Brees is the starter heading into 2015 and only an injury will change that. At 36 years old, though, the days of 5,000-yard, 35-touchdown seasons are likely a thing of the past, especially with the Saints seemingly adjusting their offense to be more reliant on the run. Brees' weapons in the passing game are more suspect now, too, after losing Kenny Stills and Jimmy Graham in trades. Still, he'll be a QB1 most weeks, just don't expect him to be the Brees of the past.
