Quick fantasy outlook: Drew Brees signed with the Saints in March 2006. He played very well for the Chargers in 2005 as the team's franchise player, but was only given a mostly incentive heavy contract offer after the season, possibly because he tore his labrum in his right (throwing) shoulder. Brees joined first year Coach Sean Payton and together they resurrected the team and the City of New Orleans who suffered the ravages of Hurricane Katrina the season before. Brees led the league in passing throwing for 4418 yards and also had 26 TD passes. Brees and Payton are perfect fits for each other and the team's offense has soared for their seven years together. Brees has won a Super Bowl, been named Super Bowl MVP, and been selected to the Pro Bowl six times in that period and he also set the single season NFL passing record in 2011 with 5476 yards. That same season, he set the NFL record for highest completion percentage in a season at 71.2%. With the Saints, Brees has been the model of consistency at quarterback, passing for an average of 4797 yards and 35 TDs. His efficiency dipped somewhat last season as Coach Sean Payton was suspended for the year as a result of his alleged involvement in the team's bounty scandal. Even in Brees' down year, he completed 63% of his passes, averaged 7.7 yards per pass attempt and passed for 5,177 yards and 43 TDs. In addition to having Coach Payton back, the Saints have Brees' top four receiving options returning. The only negative entering the 2013 campaign is the potential downgrade of the offensive line due to the loss of Jermon Bushrod. The Saints are still searching for his replacement to protect Brees' blind side. Perhaps even that will not be problematic because Brees is adept in the pocket and has a quick release.
