Summary

Drew Brees closed out a decade in New Orleans in 2015. He and the entire Saints passing offense have enjoyed unparalleled success throughout his ten years there. Brees has averaged 4,856 passing yards per season, 7.73 yards per attempt, a completion rate of 67.6% and almost 35 touchdowns per year. He turned 37 in January, but has not yet shown signs of slowing down. This season is the final year of the five-year $100 Million contract that he signed back in July 2012, yet Brees is confident that he will sign an extension and play the remainder of his career in New Orleans. The year before last, he lost his favorite target in Jimmy Graham, but the offense continued its success, using Ben Watson and a mostly young cadre of wide receivers. This year he loses Marques Colston, who also joined the Saints in 2006 with Brees, catching over 700 passes for almost 10,000 yards and 72 TDs. However, the Saints signed free agent Coby Fleener to a five-year $36 Million contract to replace the departing Watson and added rookie Michael Thomas in the second round of the draft. The positive buzz continues on the rookie Thomas in camp and adds more confidence in Brees. The Saints have attempted over 650 passes in each of the past four seasons and the focus on the passing game should continue this year enabling Brees to remain among the NFL leaders in passing yardage. Brees has not finished below QB6 in any season with the Saints and this year, his ADP may be a little lower providing even more value. (August 27)
