News you need to know

From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 26): Brees was missing his top two receivers against the Panthers, but you wouldn't have known it from the offensive efficiency or his fantasy output. He was effective in the short passing game and added a quarterback sneak rushing score (that was perhaps a fumble). This week against the Bears is a tough draw, but Brees rest of season outlook is still greatly improved after his Week 7 success.

Saints | Drew Brees accounts for three TDs (Sun Oct 25, 04:50 PM) - New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees went 29-for-36 for 287 yards and two touchdowns against the Carolina Panthers in Week 7. He also rushed for two yards and one touchdown on three carries during the game.

Our View: Brees sneak touchdown was possibly just short of the goal line and a fumble, but it was upheld. That's the only blemish on a terrific day without his top two receivers. Brees fantasy stock is up, although he's a sit against the Bears next week in 1QB leagues.
