Summary

Brees finished as a low QB1 last year, although his numbers rebounded a bit from his 2017 low point. He was still a severe feast/famine fantasy quarterback whose reputation is probably a bit ahead of his reality at this point. He did get an upgrade at tight end and has potential growth from some young wide receivers to harvest. He's not going to be a great value unless Latavius Murray goes down, but Brees has a lot of NFC South matchups in November, which often yield shootouts. There's more upside than downside here, but his floor games can be lethal for your week. (August 12)

Saints | Drew Brees has quiet game (Fri Nov 29, 12:05 AM) - New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 18 of 30 passes for 184 yards and a touchdown against the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday, Nov. 28.

Our View: Brees was quiet in a game that didn't force the Saints to open up the offense to win. He'll face a fierce 49ers defense next week and should be on benches.
