Drew Brees has Jekyll-Hyde game in defeat to Browns


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Saints quarterback Drew Brees arrived in Cleveland with a meager 67.4 rating lifetime against the Browns and a 95.7 mark against all other competition. Those struggles continued Sunday afternoon - at least for a while.

Brees had managed to complete just half of his 10 passes for 13 yards one possession into the second quarter before consistently finding prolific tight end Jimmy Graham and bolstering his numbers. He finished 27 of 40 for 237 yards, two touchdowns to Graham and a costly pick-six by safety Tashaun Gipson off an overthrow in the second quarter.

He took advantage of single coverage on Graham late in the that quarter and beyond. Brees threw a 9-yard touchdown to his favorite target with three seconds remaining in the half to cut the deficit to 16-10 and found him again for a 1-yarder six minutes into the third to give his team its first lead.

Brees will attempt to guide the Saints to their first win in Week 3 against visiting Minnesota.


Drew Brees concedes scores to running game


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/7/2014) Saints quarterback Drew Brees had a mostly typical performance Week 1 at Atlanta. He spread the ball to seven different receivers, completing 29 of 42 passes for 333 yards to give him 300-plus yards in three of his last four games against the Falcons. And as usual, he did a fine job leading his team to the end zone. The Saints scored 34 points in the loss.

But because so many of their pass-catchers were halted inside the 5-yard line, Brees didn't get credit for many of those touchdowns himself. Instead, he handed the ball off to Mark Ingram for two, both 3-yarders, and Khiry Robinson for one, a 2-yarder. Brees' lone touchdown pass could have easily been another run. It was only a 3-yarder to rookie Brandin Cooks.

Still, the only low point for Brees was an interception in the end zone late in the third quarter, and even then, defensive back Robert McClain made a great play on the ball.

Brees, who has averaged 42.7 touchdown passes over the last three seasons, will try to find the end zone more Week 2 at the Browns, who gave up 365 passing yards to Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in Week 1.


Drew Brees looks to light up Falcons


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/2/2014) Saints quarterback Drew Brees' two games against the Falcons last year weren't his best two of the 2013 season, but they were what you've come to expect from Brees. He threw to touchdown passes in each and only one interception total, averaging 317.5 yards through the air.

Given the way the Falcons defended the pass last year, those numbers could have been even better. Atlanta ranked 21st against the pass, allowing 243.6 yards per game, and gave up the second-highest quarterback rating of 102.4. They surrendered the fourth-most Fantasy points to quarterbacks.

While they made some changes to their defense this offseason, switching to a 3-4 scheme and adding Dwight Lowery at free safety, neither will be enough to slow down Brees. He's a must-start every week in Fantasy, but particularly with a matchup like this one.


Drew Brees fires two touchdowns in dress rehearsal game

He then hooked up with Marques Colston for a 13-yard touchdown strike late in the first quarter. He compiled 128 yards through the air while completing 9 of 15 passes. He added two touchdowns and no interceptions, registering a 127.2 passer rating.

Drew Brees wants to play until he's 45 -- seriously


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Saints quarterback Drew Brees, 35, wants to play another decade in the NFL.

"I'm serious. I'm not delusional," Brees said after practice Tuesday, per the New Orleans Times-Picayune. "I know that that's something that would be extremely difficult to do. Not many have done it. ... It could be done, but a lot of things have to fall into place."

Brees said his performance will determine how long he plays.

"I know it's one year at a time. It's, 'What have you done for me lately?'... But why not push the envelope a little bit?" Brees said. "It's certainly not going to be easy. I try to play this game like a kid. ... It is a serious business, and they don't keep you around if you don't play well."


Drew Brees confident in offense with or without Graham


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/11/2014) Saints quarterback Drew Brees isn't worried about the offense if tight end Jimmy Graham is there or not, reports USA Today. Graham is not with the team because of a contract dispute.

"I'd hate to not have Jimmy," Brees said. "I'm very confident that a deal will get done. But if it doesn't, you worry about what you do have and who you do have out there."

Last season, Graham led the Saints with 86 catches, 1,215 yards and 16 touchdowns. Brees knows that. But he knows history, too. Sean Payton arrived in New Orleans in 2006, and he built a system around Brees, which is why the quarterback is confident.

"Look at our numbers over the last eight years," he said. "We've had a lot of different guys in there. Jimmy's only been here four years. He's only been here half the time. We were putting up some pretty big numbers before he got here, and we've been putting up some big numbers since he's been here. Hey, we do what we do. It's nice when you can have guys like Jimmy, and obviously he's a big part of our offense. If he's in there, we're going to try to get him the ball. We're game-planning ways to get him the ball, ways to put him in the best position to succeed. But if he's not, somebody else is going to get those touches. We'll put those guys in position."


Drew Brees not close to retirement


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/23/2014) Saints quarterback Drew Brees is 35, but he has no plans of retiring any time soon, reports the Associated Press.

Brees said he could play at least another five years. And why not after three seasons in a row with 5,000-plus yards.

"Do I hope I can play into my 40s? Yes, I do. As long as I'm healthy and playing at a high level, then why not?" Brees said. "I certainly don't take it for granted and know that obviously you've got to prove yourself every year."


Drew Brees excited for Brandin Cooks


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/22/2014) Saints quarterback Drew Brees is excited about playing with new rookie receiver Brandin Cooks , reports ESPN.

"Yeah, it's awesome," Brees said. "I mean, we traded up to get this guy. So that tells me a lot about how we feel about this guy. Not only his talent and his skill set, but also just the type of guy he is. From all accounts, he's just a phenomenal person, a great teammate, extremely hard, tough work ethic, and just a character guy. Fits in perfect in our locker room and loves football. We love those guys."


Brandin Cooks could be the No. 1 rookie Fantasy receiver


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) The Saints needed help at receiver after getting rid of Lance Moore and Darren Sproles this offseason, and they were aggressive in the first round of the NFL Draft. The Saints gave up the No. 27 and No. 91 picks to move up to No. 20 for Oregon State receiver Brandin Cooks.

He will now become the third receiver for the Saints behind Marques Colston and Kenny Stills, but he could end up as the No. 1 Fantasy receiver this season, even ahead of Sammy Watkins (Bills), Mike Evans (Buccaneers) and Odell Beckham Jr. (Giants), who were all drafted ahead of him. Cooks landed with the best offense and best quarterback of that group.

We'll find out how the Saints plan to use Cooks, who has elite speed but is on the smallish side at 5-foot-10, 189 pounds. Think Tavon Austin of the Rams, but hope for DeSean Jackson at his best with the Eagles. And Cooks should fly on the turf at the Superdome.

I would only draft Cooks with a late-round flier in seasonal Fantasy leagues, but he's a late first round or early second-round pick in rookie-only formats. If the Saints use him the right way -- unlike how the Rams used Austin last year -- then he could be a sleeper in 2014.

As for Stills, don't panic with this move. He still has the chance for a breakout season as the starter opposite Colston. And Drew Brees definitely benefits with the addition of Cooks.


Saints GM: No urgency to find Drew Brees' successor


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2014) Saints general manager Mickey Loomis will be keeping his eyes on available quarterbacks in the draft, but said finding 35-year-old Drew Brees' successor is not a pressing issue, reports Fox Sports.

"We pay attention to that because you want to have someone in the wings who could step up and play for you," Loomis said. "I wouldn't say it's at the forefront of our minds, and yet we do recognize Drew's age. But if you talk to Drew, he's going to play a lot longer, so that's encouraging."

Loomis added he's pleased with current backup quarterbacks Luke McCown and Ryan Griffin.


Drew Brees believes in Joe Lombardi


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2014) Saints quarterback Drew Brees believes new Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi is going to bring out the best in Matthew Stafford, according to mlive.com.

Lombardi worked as Brees' quarterbacks coach for five seasons before joining the Lions. Brees said he sees some similarities between the Lions and Saints personnel, and believes Lombardi will find a way to make things work in Detroit. Brees added that he knew Lombardi would be in line to get a coordinator job. "You can kind of tell when assistant coaches are just kind of ready for that next step -- to be a coordinator, to be a playcaller," Brees said.
