  • Drew Brees A Low-End QB1 Against Buccaneers

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is a low-end QB1 against the Buccaneers this week in the Divisional Round. Brees was decent against the Bears in the wild-card game last week, tossing for 265 yards and two scores. Overall, the QB has been decent overall since returning from broken ribs and a lung injury in Week 15 of the regular season. He has tossed for at least 200 yards in the past four contests dating back to the regular season. The Bucs are in the middle tier against opposing quarterbacks in fantasy, so Brees certainly has some fantasy value this week for this important matchup.

  • Drew Brees Throws For 265 Yards

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees went 28-for-39 for 265 yards and two touchdowns in the wild-card win over the Bears on Sunday. Brees has looked sharp since returning from broken ribs and a lung injury, and he threw for at least 200 yards in the last three games of the regular season after he returned from the injuries. Next up is a matchup against the Bucs, a team that Brees threw four touchdowns against in their second matchup in November. Overall, Tampa is average against fantasy quarterbacks, so the future Hall of Fame QB is in the starting tier next week in the Divisional Round.

  • Drew Brees Likely To Retire After Season

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is expected to retire after the season, according to people close to him. Brees hasn't officially announced his decision, but it sounds as though this will be his last season. If he does decide to hang up his cleats, he has a contract with NBC waiting for him. If the 2020 season was indeed the 41-year-old's last, he'd finish his Hall of Fame career with 80,358 career passing yards on 10,551 attempts for 571 touchdowns and 243 interceptions in 287 regular season games with the Chargers and Saints. Brees has made the Pro Bowl 13 times in his 20 seasons, including a run of seven straight selections with the Saints from 2008 to 2014. He's led the NFL in passing yards seven times, had the highest completion percentage six times and has led the league in completions six different times. Brees will be a no-doubt first-ballot Hall of Famer and will be hoping his career doesn't come to an end in the wild-card game against the Bears on Sunday. The veteran signal-caller will be a midrange fantasy QB with running back Alvin Kamara and wide receiver Michael Thomas (ankle) back in the fold against Chicago.

  • Drew Brees Faces Tough Matchup Against Chicago

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees faces a tough test against a stingy Chicago defense this week. In his three starts since returning from a rib and lung injury, Brees has tossed for at least 200 yards in each game along with having a total of six touchdowns and three picks in that span. Though the QB hasn't been an explosive fantasy option by any means this season, he has certainly been serviceable. Nevertheless, the Bears are generally stingy against fantasy QBs, so Brees is a low-end start.

  • Drew Brees Tosses Three Touchdown Passes In Win

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees completed 22 of 32 passes for 206 yards and three touchdowns in a 33-7 victory over the Panthers. Brees bounced back in the touchdown department, throwing one to three different receivers a week after going scoreless. It hasn't always been pretty- he's averaged below 7 yards per attempt in two of his three starts since returning from injury- but the veteran signal-caller is 2-1 with a close loss to the defending champion Chiefs being the only demerit. Brees will gear up for a playoff run, which will start at home against the Bears, who allowed 280 yards and two scores to Brees earlier this year.

  • Drew Brees In Position For Productive Day Against Falcons

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has seemingly had a couple of shaky outings since returning from his rib/lung injuries. However, he ended up with three touchdown passes in the first game and produced 311 yards and a season-high 12.0 yards per attempt in the second. It may not be pretty, but the veteran signal-caller is doing what it takes to win football games. Atlanta, his Week 17 opponent, has improved as a defense since Raheem Morris took over as head coach, though they still rank 31st against the pass. Brees is worth starting in DFS this week, as the Saints need a win to have a shot at the number-one seed for the playoffs.

  • Drew Brees Becomes First QB To 80,000 Yards

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees became the first player in NFL history to throw for 80,000 yards in the Week 16 win over the Vikings on Christmas Day on Friday. Brees, the league's all-time career passer, entered the game needing just 154 yards for the record. The future Hall of Famer finished the game with 311 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions against Minnesota. Brees could be joined by Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady soon, as he enters Week 16 with 78,457 career passing yards. Entering Saturday, Brees has 568 career touchdown passes, while Brady has 573. Brees didn't have a touchdown on Friday, but he completed 73 percent of his passes and went over 300 yards. It wasn't the performance his fantasy managers were hoping for, but he'll once again be at least a low-end QB1 in Week 17 against the Panthers.

  • Drew Brees Throws For 311 Yards

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees went 19-for-26 for 311 yards and two picks in Friday's win over the Vikings. In two games since returning from injury, Brees has tossed for at least 234 yards in both contests but it's also worth noting he has three interceptions as well in that span. In the season finale next week, the Saints play the Panthers, who are middle-tier against fantasy QBs. As a result, Brees should be considered a QB2.

  • Drew Brees A QB2 Against Vikings

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is a QB2 this week against the Vikings. Brees was able to return against the Chiefs last week after dealing with a rib injury and the QB had 234 yards, three touchdowns, and a pick. The Vikings are middle-of-the-pack against fantasy QBs and Michael Thomas is out for the season, so Brees is best viewed as a QB2.

  • Drew Brees Tosses Three Touchdowns In Return

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees completed 15 of 34 passes for 234 yards, three touchdowns, and an interception in a 32-29 loss to the Chiefs. Brees seemed to be rusty in the opening part of the game, as he started just 3 of 10 with an interception. However, he buckled down and threw for three scores to three different receivers in the second half. There's certainly still some risk in starting Brees moving forward- however, the matchup with the Vikings' 24th ranked pass defense might be too good to pass up.

  • Drew Brees Will Start Sunday

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (lung, ribs) will be the team's starting quarterback in Week 15 against the Chiefs, according to a source. The Saints believe that Brees is fully healthy and doctors have cleared him to play. The future Hall of Famer had no setbacks in practice this week, didn't feel pain and took the first-team repetitions in practice. Jameis Winston will continue to serve as the No. 2 QB, while Taysom Hill will go back to being a jack of all trades. Brees' return is good news for running back Alvin Kamara, wide receiver Michael Thomas and tight end Jared Cook. The Chiefs Defense has allowed the fifth-most fantasy points per game to QBs in the last five weeks, giving Brees some upside in this matchup. However, he'll be more of a low-end QB1/high-end QB2 with some extra risk this weekend in his first game back from a pretty serious and painful injury.

  • Drew Brees Has A Ways To Go

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (lung, ribs) was designated to return to practice on Wednesday, but head coach Sean Payton said that Brees has "a ways to go" in his recovery from 11 broken ribs and a punctured lung. "He's got a ways to go still, and he's someone we're not gonna just hurry back and just put him in the game," Payton said. Brees felt good in practice on Wednesday, but it sounds unlikely that they'll rush him back to play in Week 15 against the Chiefs. Don't expect to have the future Hall of Fame quarterback for your fantasy lineups this weekend. It'll likely be Taysom Hill again under center. He's gone 3-1 in place of Brees and will remain a low-end QB1 for fantasy managers because of his rushing ability, mainly.

  • Drew Brees Has Successful Practice Wednesday

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (lung, ribs), officially returned to practice on Wednesday, and it went well. The Saints have three weeks to place him on the active roster, so they won't rush him, but Wednesday's practice was a great sign for the veteran quarterback. It would be nice to see Brees battle Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs in Week 15, but it's likely that the Saints will hold off on bringing the future Hall of Famer back until Week 16 or 17. We'll have a better idea on whether the 41-year-old will actually play this weekend after a few more practices, but he'd be a shaky low-end QB1 if he plays this Sunday. Taysom Hill has gone 3-1 as the starter in Brees' absence, and he'll make for a low-end QB1 for his rushing ability if he starts versus KC.

  • Drew Brees Not Ruled Out For Week 15

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (lung, rib) isn't being ruled out yet for Week 15 against the Chiefs, but his chances aren't great. Week 15 was the original target date for Brees' return, but he didn't have full range of motion and was dealing with some pain in his last throwing session a couple of days ago. However, he will have a more realistic shot of playing this Sunday if he can throw with full range of motion and without pain on Wednesday. The Saints probably don't feel pressured to rush Brees back either, as Taysom Hill has gone 3-1 in his absence. Fantasy managers shouldn't expect to have Brees available for their lineups in the fantasy semifinals. If Hill makes his fifth start, he should be considered a low-end QB1/high-end QB2 for his rushing ability against KC.

  • Drew Brees Uncertain For Next Week

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (ribs, lung) is uncertain for Week 15 against the Chiefs. Brees reportedly attempted to throw at practice, though he's still dealing with pain and discomfort- the session didn't go well. Sitting at 10-2 with a playoff berth already locked up, New Orleans is clearly not going to rush back their 41-year-old signal-caller back into action before he's fully healed. If Brees is indeed absent for the contest against the Chiefs, Taysom Hill would once again be in play as a QB1 for a potential shootout with Patrick Mahomes.

  • Drew Brees Working On The Side At Practice

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (lung, ribs) was present at practice on Thursday but didn't participate. Instead, Brees was working off to the side. The 41-year-old future Hall of Famer is progressing well in his rehab, but he's more likely to return in Week 15 in a showdown against the Chiefs. That means that dual-threat QB Taysom Hill will get his fourth straight start under center against a struggling Eagles offense in Week 14. Hill has a solid floor thanks to his rushing ability and is 3-0 with Brees sidelined. Philadelphia's defense has only allowed two rushing touchdowns through 13 weeks, but New Orleans' offense should be able to move the ball pretty consistently in this matchup, making Hill a low-end QB1 on Sunday.

  • Drew Brees Unlikely To Play In Week 14

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (lung, ribs) is progressing nicely in his rehab from a punctured lung and fractured ribs, but he won't practice much, if at all, on Wednesday, according to sources. Brees is eligible to come off the Injured Reserve and the Saints could ramp him up on Thursday to see how he feels, but a more realistic target date has been Week 15 against the Chiefs. The Saints certainly want the No. 1 seed in the NFC for a first-round bye, but they don't want to rush the 41-year-old back into action too soon. Plus, Taysom Hill has been effective as both a passer and runner under center in place of Brees in the three games that he's started. Hill hasn't looked excellent throwing the ball, but he should be able to get it done against a struggling Eagles Defense. His legs give him plenty of upside as a low-end QB1 for at least another week.

  • Drew Brees Without Timetable For Return To Field

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (ribs) is eligible to return to action as soon as Sunday's game versus Philadelphia, but per head coach Sean Payton, the likely future Hall of Famer is still without a timetable to take the field. Payton noted that Brees will continue his rehab, although that does not necessarily indicate he'll be ready to play in less than a week. In Brees' absence, Taysom Hill has looked the part of starting quarterback, giving the Saints little reason to rush Brees back into action, especially after having clinched a playoff spot following a Week 13 win. The severity of Brees' injury will also likely play a part in how aggressive New Orleans will be in getting him back on the field, so fantasy managers will want to check back for news on when the veteran signal caller will return to practice.

  • Saints May Wait Until Chiefs Game To Play Drew Brees

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (ribs) is progressing well in his attempt to return and could be activated off the IR soon, but Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports that the team may wait until their Week 15 contest against the Chiefs to bring Brees back. The extra time could help ensure the veteran passer is as close to full strength as possible for an important matchup. Taysom Hill will likely start until Brees returns, with Hill's rushing ability giving him a high floor and ceiling, even as his presence hurts the production of running back Alvin Kamara.

  • Drew Brees Eligible To Return In Week 14

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (ribs, lung) could return in Week 14 against the Eagles. ESPN's Adam Schefter notes that Brees is improving from his injuries and was spotted throwing in practice. Brees is eligible to be activated as early as next week, though that doesn't necessarily mean he will play, as the Saints could opt for a more cautious approach with their 41-year-old signal-caller. Taysom Hill has started two games in the absence of Brees, doing damage with his legs but leaving a bit to be desired as a passer. Brees' potential return would be a welcome sight for fantasy managers, and particularly for those who have Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas rostered.

  • Drew Brees Could Return This Season

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (ribs, lung) could return at some point this season. It was reported that Brees has 11 rib fractures in total, in addition to a punctured lung and a shoulder injury that hasn't quite healed all the way. As such, the 41-year old is expected to miss the next four weeks and potentially make his return in Week 15 against the Chiefs. That contest could have important seeding implications for both sides, which is likely why Brees is eyeing it for his return. This would be good news for fantasy managers who hold onto the veteran, as he'd be an appealing QB1 streamer for playoff matchups in what figures to be a high-scoring affair with Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs.

  • Drew Brees Likely Out At Least Two Weeks

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (ribs, lung) is dealing with cracked ribs on both sides and a punctured lung, and he'll likely be out at least two weeks. There was no change in his status after additional tests on Tuesday, according to sources. Jameis Winston is expected to see plenty of playing time in the next two weeks, although Taysom Hill will also be sprinkled in as well. Winston took over for Brees after his injury in Week 10, with Hill playing a bigger role on third downs and running situations. Head coach Sean Payton is playing things close to his chest as to how he'll approach the QB position against the Falcons in Week 11. Winston will be the more attractive QB2 option for fantasy managers, but his ceiling could be capped if Hill sees his fair share of packages as well.

  • Drew Brees Set To Miss Multiple Starts

    The New Orleans Saints aren't planning to put quarterback Drew Brees (lung, ribs) on Injured Reserve, but he's currently set to miss multiple starts. ESPN is reporting that Brees is suffering from broken ribs and a collapsed lung after a hard hit in the Week 10 win over the 49ers. The 41-year-old future Hall of Famer could make it back within three weeks, but his fantasy managers are looking at a multi-week absence at the very least. The Saints surely want to have Brees as healthy as possible heading into the playoffs. Jameis Winston relieved Brees on Sunday against San Fran, and he's likely to see a start in Week 11 against the Falcons. He'll be a popular waiver-wire pickup and could be a high-end QB2 against Atlanta, depending on how much they use Taysom Hill in tandem with Winston under center.

  • Drew Brees Post 76 Yards

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees went 8-for-13 for 76 yards and a touchdown in the Week 10 win over the 49ers. Nevertheless, the QB went down with a ribs injury and Jameis Winston had to fill in. Now, managers will have to monitor if Brees will play or not next week against the Falcons. If he doesn't play, Jameis Winston could become a potential streaming option.

  • Drew Brees Questionable To Return With Rib Injury

    New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees (ribs) is officially questionable to return in Week 10 with a rib injury. Jameis Winston started the second half of the game and it appears somewhat likely that Winston will finish the game against the San Francisco 49ers. Brees had a shoulder injury before the game and was roughed up on a sack in the first half. He completed eight of his 13 passes for 76 yards and a touchdown in the first half.

  • Michael Thomas, Drew Brees Limited For Thursday's Practice

    New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas (ankle, hamstring) and quarterback Drew Brees (shoulder) were both limited during practice for the second consecutive day Thursday. Thomas and Brees suited up Sunday against Tampa Bay, and neither appeared to sustain any type of significant injury that would lead to them being held out for the upcoming matchup versus San Francisco. While both deal with injuries, their rapport has been out of sync from where it has been in years past when both were elite season-long options. At this stage, there's no reason to anticipate either being sidelined, but in the case that they are, expect either Taysom Hill or Jameis Winston to start at quarterback and Emmanuel Sanders, Tre'Quan Smith, Marquez Callaway and Deonte Harris to benefit with increased targets from another Thomas absence. Thomas remains a high-end WR1, while Brees is more of a low-end QB1 with a lowered ceiling in what could wind up being his final season in the NFL.

  • Drew Brees A Low-End QB1 This Week

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is a low-end QB1 this week, but it's important to note he is dealing with a shoulder injury. Assuming he's active, Brees is a great streaming option this week after coming off a four-touchdown performance in the thrashing of the Buccaneers. In the past five games, all wins, the QB has 11 touchdowns to only two picks. The 49ers are middle-of-the-pack in fantasy points to QBs, so Brees does have upside here.

  • Drew Brees Dissects Buccaneers With Four Touchdowns

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees completed 26 of 32 passes for 222 yards and four touchdowns in a 38-3 blowout of the Buccaneers. It was a classic performance from Brees, as he picked apart the league's number one pass defense by DVOA, registering a completion to 12 different receivers. The veteran signal-caller wasn't needed much in the second half, as New Orleans took a 31-0 lead into the locker room. Brees has thrown for eight touchdowns and no interceptions in his last three games, with at least 250 passing yards in two of them. He's rolling heading into a Week 10 matchup with a 49ers Defense that was just shredded by Aaron Rodgers.

  • Drew Brees Has Upside Against Tampa Bay

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is good to go for a pivotal divisional matchup with the Buccaneers. Brees had a minor shoulder injury that kept him limited in practice, though he was a full participant in the final practice session of the week. He'll be facing a stingy Tampa Bay defense that ranks first in pass DVOA, though this game has the feel of a classic shootout between grizzled veterans Brees and Tom Brady. Brees will have a full complement of weapons for the first time since Week 1. He should be looked at as a high-end QB2, though he certainly possesses the upside for a top-10 finish at the position in Week 9.

  • Alvin Kamara, Drew Brees Taken Off Injury Report

    New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara (foot) and quarterback Drew Brees (shoulder) were taken off the final injury report for Week 9 against the Buccaneers and will be active for the important divisional showdown on Sunday night. Kamara is dealing with a minor foot injury. He had 12 carries for 16 yards but found the end zone on the ground in Week 1 against Tampa, also catching five passes for 51 yards and another score. The matchup isn't the greatest, but Kamara is a must-start, high-end RB1. Brees completed only 18 passes for 160 yards against the Bucs in the first matchup, adding two touchdowns. The 41-year-old will be getting receivers Michael Thomas (ankle, hamstring) and Emmanuel Sanders back, but Tampa has been very stingy against QBs this year, making Brees more of a QB2.

  • Drew Brees, Michael Thomas Expected To Play

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (shoulder) and wide receiver Michael Thomas (ankle, hamstring) are both expected to play on Sunday against the Buccaneers. Both players were limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday, leading to some insinuation from head coach Sean Payton that they would be game-time calls. However, it seems that New Orleans will be at full strength for the first time since Week 1. Brees will be in the QB2 range, though he has upside if this game turns into a back-and-forth affair. Thomas hasn't played since Week 1 and has some risk of re-injury, though he needs to be in lineups as a low-end WR1.

  • Drew Brees Remains Limited Thursday

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (shoulder) downplayed his presence on the Week 9 injury report on Wednesday, but he remained limited in practice on Thursday. Brees was working on the side with no pads on during the early portion of practice open to the media. It's rare for the veteran to be limited this late in the week, and it's unclear if it will affect his availability for Sunday night against the Buccaneers. Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill are both candidates to replace Brees if he can't play. His practice status on Friday will give us a clearer picture. The 41-year-old threw for only 160 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1 against Tampa, and he'll be a QB2 in his second meeting with the division-rival Bucs.

  • Drew Brees, Michael Thomas Limited Wednesday

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (shoulder) and wide receiver Michael Thomas (ankle, hamstring) were both limited in practice on Wednesday. The 41-year-old Brees downplayed his presence on the Week 9 injury report."I'm 41 years old. I've got a lot of stuff going on. But I just keep ticking," Brees said. Even if he gets Thomas back in this one, Brees will be more of a QB2 against a Bucs defense allowing the fifth-fewest fantasy points per game to signal-callers. Thomas has been the biggest fantasy bust due to injuries this year, as he hasn't played since Week 1. The 27-year-old should get back on the field this Sunday, though, but he'll have his work cut out for him against Tampa Bay. If Thomas is active, he's a must-start.

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees went 31-for-41 for 280 yards and two touchdowns in the overtime win over Chicago on Sunday. The veteran has now tossed for at least 280 yards in the past three games and has thrown five touchdowns to only one pick in that stretch as well. Even without his top weapons, Brees has been decent and should remain in the low-end QB1 tier most weeks. Next week brings an important matchup against the Bucs and the potential presence of Michael Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders should help Brees' value even against a tough defense.

  • Drew Brees Not A Strong Option In Week 8

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is not a strong option at QB in Week 8 against the Bears. Chicago allows the fewest fantasy points to QBs and Brees may be without Michael Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders once again this week. Therefore, this week will pose a stiff challenge for Brees if he doesn't have a strong receiving corp against a top defense. If there are better options, it's best to go forth with them for this week.

  • Drew Brees Likes Facing The Bears

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is 4-0 in his last four meetings with the Chicago Bears, who he will face once again in Week 8. Brees is averaging 308 passing yards per game while completing 78.7 percent of his passes for an 8-0 touchdown-to-interception ratio and a passer rating of 124 in his last four games against them. However, QBs have seen a 20.3-point drop in their passer rating against the Bears Defense in 2020, meaning that Brees may not have it as easy this year. That will especially be true if he remains without receivers Michael Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. Chicago allows the fewest fantasy points per game to signal-callers this year, making Brees a shaky QB2 this weekend despite his past success against the Bears.

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees completed 29 of 36 passes for 287 yards and two touchdowns along with a rushing touchdown. Brees was accurate throughout the contest, spreading the ball around to eight different receivers. The veteran even scored a rushing touchdown for the second straight game, pulling the old jump-over-the-line trick for a one-yard score. The lone mistake was a fumble, but that doesn't change the fact that Brees has now thrown for at least 300 yards or two scores in every game this season. He'll be in the conversation as a starting option in Week 8, despite the tough matchup against the Bears.

  • Drew Brees A High-End QB2 Against Carolina

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees faces the Panthers in Week 7. Brees will face a sneakily-good Carolina defense without his top two receivers, Michael Thomas (ankle, hamstring) and Emmanuel Sanders (COVID-19). Despite not having Thomas, Brees has thrown for at least 250 yards or two touchdowns in each game this season, giving fantasy managers a solid floor. The Panthers allow the fourth-fewest fantasy points per game to quarterbacks, limiting Brees' upside. However, he should be able to finish as a solid QB2 in Week 7.
