Drew Brees completed 28-of-39 passes for for 389 yards, three touchdowns, and an interception in the Saints' Week 9 loss to the Titans.

He also scored on a one-yard QB Sneak. Brees managed three of his touchdowns in the first half, but was mostly held in check before throwing a fourth-quarter touchdown to backup TE Michael Hoomanawanui. He could have had two interceptions, but one was called back on a penalty. It's still another impressive game from Brees, who has 11:2 TD/INT ratio over the last two games. Brees is a top-five play for Week 10 against Washington.
Nov 8 - 5:02 PM

Drew Brees completed 40-of-50 passes for 511 yards, seven touchdowns and an interception in New Orleans' 52-49, Week 8 win over the Giants.

Brees' seven touchdowns tie the NFL record most recently set by Nick Foles in November 2013. Brees ripped holes in the Giants' pathetic secondary all afternoon, tossing scores of 34, 26, 53, two, 21, 20 and nine yards. The 34-yarder was a flea flicker to Willie Snead, while the Giants didn't bother to cover Marques Colston on the 53-yard strike. Brees' arm looked as good as it has all season, with his shoulder no longer being a concern. The future Hall-of-Famer nearly doubled his 2015 touchdown total, going from eight to 15. Truly balling out since returning from his injury, Brees gets the Titans' supposedly stingy pass defense in Week 9.
Nov 1 - 4:43 PM

Drew Brees completed 28-of-44 passes for 255 yards, one touchdown and one interception in New Orleans' 27-21, Week 7 win over the Colts.

Brees could have had a bigger fantasy day, but Ben Watson had two separate long receptions end at the one-yard line instead of in the end zone. The Saints raced out to a 27-0 lead early in the third quarter, but played sleepy football for the final 25 minutes. The sub-300 yard effort was Brees' first since Week 2. Playing much better since returning from his shoulder injury, Brees will be a mid-range QB1 against the Giants next Sunday.
Oct 25 - 4:43 PM

Drew Brees completed 30-of-39 passes for 312 yards and a touchdown in New Orleans' 31-21, Week 6 win over the Falcons.

Although he continued to have issues driving the ball, Brees was legitimately great in a game the Saints controlled from start to finish. Brees is clearly still bothered by his shoulder injury, but it isn't holding him back from feathery ball placement. He now has 10 days to heal up for New Orleans' Week 7 trip to Indianapolis. Brees' ceiling isn't quite what it once was, but he's locked in as a QB1.
Oct 15 - 11:44 PM

Drew Brees is on pace to take 53 sacks this season.

That sack total would easily eclipse Brees' previous high of 37 set in 2013, and that came over a full 16 games. Brees has been under siege this season, and getting him protected has to be coach Sean Payton's No. 1 priority. Getting LT Terron Armstead (knee) back would be a good first step.

Drew Brees completed 26-of-43 passes for 335 yards, two touchdowns and an interception Week 5 against the Eagles.

In addition to the interception, Brees lost two fumbles. Both resulted in points for the Eagles, and the second fumble completely took the Saints out of the game in the third quarter. On the bright side, Brees looked close to 100 percent as he uncorked several deep shots to Brandin Cooks. He is averaging 347 yards and has multiple scores in each game since returning from injury. Brees will be a solid QB1 on Thursday night against the Falcons.
Oct 11 - 5:57 PM

Drew Brees has been removed from the Saints' injury report.

He's over the shoulder issue that caused him to miss Week 3. In his Week 4 return, Brees threw for 359 yards and two scores against the Cowboys, winning NFC Offensive Player of the Week honors. He gets the Eagles on Sunday.
Oct 7 - 3:07 PM

Saints coach Sean Payton said Monday he believes Drew Brees (shoulder) emerged from Sunday night's win over Dallas feeling "fine."

Brees himself was a bit more evasive when asked about his health, but he posted 359 passing yards and two touchdowns against the Cowboys, while dealing 41 attempts. Based on a one-game sample size, it appears Brees has the capability of being effective even if he's well short of 100 percent. The Saints will visit the Eagles this week. New Orleans' bye is not until Week 11.
Oct 5 - 5:48 PM

Drew Brees completed 33-of-41 passes for 359 yards and two touchdowns in the Saints' Sunday night Week 4 win over the Cowboys.

Brees managed the game and did enough to outlast the Cowboys. He was held in check most of the night, but hit C.J. Spiller for an 80-yard touchdown on the opening drive of overtime. Brees looked at less than 100 percent and didn’t take any deep shots. Through four weeks (three starts), he’s on pace for 3,876 yards and a 16:8 TD/INT ratio. His rest-of-season outlook and ability to stay healthy are concerns, but Brees should outperform his touchdown rates. Brees will be a QB1 for Week 5 against the Eagles.
Oct 5 - 12:08 AM

Drew Brees (shoulder) is active for Week 4 against the Cowboys.

Brees was listed as probable, so his status was never in doubt. His deep accuracy coming off a shoulder issues is a concern, but Brees says he's healthy enough to make every throw. The Saints inactives are QB Garrett Grayson, WR Joe Morgan, CB Kyle Wilson, DE Obum Gwacham, DT Kaleb Eulls, OG Jahri Evans, and TE Michael Hoomanawanui.
Oct 4 - 7:10 PM

Drew Brees (shoulder) believes his passing arm is healthy and he can make every throw this week against the Cowboys.

Oct 3 - 12:38 PM

Drew Brees (shoulder) is listed as probable for Week 4 against Dallas.

Brees officially has the green light, as per NFL injury report rules a "probable" tag means the team believes the player is "virtually certain" to perform his normal game-day duties. Brees' return is a big boost to the fantasy outlooks of Brandin Cooks, Mark Ingram, and C.J. Spiller.
Oct 2 - 4:19 PM

Saints coach Sean Payton told reporters he expects Drew Brees (shoulder) to start Sunday against the Cowboys.

"He looked crisp today," said Payton after Friday's practice. "I think he’s going to end up starting and based on the way the week unfolded each day, I felt like he’s made the progress we’re looking for." Brees missed his first game in almost six years last week after being diagnosed with a sprained rotator cuff in his throwing shoulder. Luke McCown will head back to the bench.
Oct 2 - 2:32 PM

Drew Brees (shoulder) was officially limited in Thursday's practice.

Brees is appearing on track for Sunday's game, but the same was true early last week, as well. His status cannot be taken for granted, which is an issue since the Saints are playing in the Sunday night game. Owners need to have an alternative in order.
