Summary

Brees is returning for his 20th NFL season and 15th with the Saints. He remains a viable fantasy quarterback even if he isn't the elite option he once was. The Saints have become a more balanced offense in his later years, but Brees was actually better than you think in fantasy leagues last year. After he returned from a thumb injury, Brees had three or more touchdown passes in 7 of 9 games. This year he gains Emmanuel Sanders and has continuity throughout his offense in a year that will marred by the lack of an offseason. He should come out of the gate hot and is a potential early season bargain a low QB1 (QB10-12) ADP. (May 6)
