Drew Brees still your starting quarterback

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/19/14) It hasn't quite been vintage Drew Brees, but the veteran's performance over the last handful of games for the Saints should be enough to alleviate Fantasy owners' concerns about his value.

Brees tossed two more touchdowns while racking up 342 yards through the air Sunday, en route to his fourth 20-plus point game in a row. Sure, in the past, 24 Fantasy points might have been a pretty ho-hum outing from Brees in a dome, but it is better than Fantasy owners' worst-case scenarios after he posted just 17 and 19 Fantasy points in the first two games of the season.

Brees has pretty clearly taken a step back this season, with 11 touchdowns to seven interceptions representing his worst ratio since 2010. Still, even a subpar Drew Brees is a starting Fantasy option, so don't let your disappointment in him cause you to overreact. Brees should be in your lineup for Week 8 against the Packers.   

Drew Brees passes for 340-plus yards for third straight week

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/19/14) Saints quarterback Drew Brees hit 28 of 45 throws for 342 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 7 loss at Detroit, marking the third straight game he's passed for at least 340 yards. However, Brees threw late over the middle to wideout Marques Colston with just over three minutes left and was picked off by Lions safety Glover Quin.

With tight end Jimmy Graham hampered by a shoulder injury, Brees hooked up with deep threat Kenny Stills for a 46-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Earlier, Brees found fullback Austin Johnson for a 13-yard score.

Brees, who had a 13-yard rush, has thrown exactly two touchdowns in five straight games. He'll play the Packers in Week 8.

Drew Brees may not be such a great start

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/16/14) Anyone who owns Drew Brees in Fantasy has been at least a little disappointed with the numbers he's delivered so far. But with an average of 314.8 yards per game and two touchdown passes in each of the last four games, he hasn't given anyone reason to consider sitting him.

But that changes in Week 7. The Saints are facing the league's toughest pass defense in Detroit, which made the Vikings' Teddy Bridgewater look hopelessly inept in Week 6 and limited the Packers' Aaron Rodgers to 162 yards in Week 3. That's just what the Lions do. They're the only team allowing fewer than 200 passing yards per game and have given up the fewest Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks by far.

And then there's the matter of Brees being without star tight end Jimmy Graham for the first time this season. Between that, the killer matchup and the fact he hasn't been knock-you-over-good, we have a recipe for something radical.

Jamey Eisenberg still ranks Brees a respectable ninth at quarterback for this week, but I lean more Dave Richard's way. I'll go ahead and say it: I'm benching Brees for Joe Flacco in one league.

Time to adjust expectations for Drew Brees?

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/5/14) True, it didn't happen Week 3 against Minnesota or Week 4 at Dallas, but Week 5 against Tampa Bay was supposed to be different. That was when Saints quarterback Drew Brees was supposed to get back to doing all the things Drew Brees does -- you know, throwing three or four touchdown passes, single-handedly winning games for Fantasy owners, etc. The Buccaneers entered the game tied for 28th against the pass. What could go wrong?

How 'bout Brees himself? The star quarterback doubled his season total with three interceptions, and though he threw for a season-high 371 yards, he was once again limited to just two touchdowns through the air. Week after week, he has the matchup that's supposed to change everything, and week after week, he falls short.

Granted, most Fantasy owners would be thrilled to get two touchdown passes from their quarterback every week, but if you own Brees, you most likely passed up a really good running back to get him. You need him to outperform the average Fantasy quarterback, and so far, he hasn't.

The Saints are so pass-heavy that I don't see how he doesn't have better times ahead, but since you're without him in Week 6 anyway, you might want to shop him to see if you can still get first-round value for him. Doesn't mean you have to take it if you do, but particularly if you're struggling, you want to keep your options open.

This is the week for Drew Brees

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/1/14) Chris Towers said it last week. Now it's my turn to declare Week 5 the week Drew Brees gets back to being Drew Brees.

Which isn't to say he's been Drew Stanton or anything, but he's been a little too Drew Bledsoe for my liking through the first four weeks. Basically, I want to see less of the one- and two-touchdown games and more of the three- and four-touchdown variety.

This matchup against the Buccaneers presents him with his best chance yet to do just that. He has a favorable history against the division opponent, throwing for four touchdowns in three of his last four games against them, and the Buccaneers have been especially susceptible to the pass this year, ranking fourth-to-last in yards allowed (272.5) and giving up the highest passer rating (118.4).

The Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger threw for 314 yards and three touchdowns against them in Week 4. The Falcons' Matt Ryan threw for 286 yards and three touchdowns against them a week earlier and could have had more if the Falcons let him finish out the lopsided victory.

Most likely, no one was seriously considering sitting Brees this week, but Jamey Eisenberg ranks him No. 1 among all quarterbacks. I'm cool with that.
