Drew Brees completed 27-of-40 passes for 237 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Saints' Week 2 loss to the Browns.
The Saints' outdoor road struggles continue. Brees and the offense got off to an extremely slow start, as they totaled just 14 yards on 12 first-quarter plays. The only thing that worked for Brees was his connection with Jimmy Graham, whom he hooked up with for both touchdowns. Brees' interception was a back-breaking 62-yard pick-six before halftime to put the Browns up 16-3. Brees should get back on track next week at home against the Vikings. Sep 14 - 4:48 PM

Drew Brees completed 29-of-42 passes for 333 yards, a touchdown and an interception against the Falcons Week 1.

The Saints offense was on fire in the first half, scoring 20 points and putting together three 65-plus yard drives. Atlanta's defense played better in the second half, however, and was able to stop Brees from having a monster day. Brees will remain a high-end QB1 against the Browns next week.
Sep 7 - 4:33 PM

Drew Brees completed 9-of-15 passes for 128 yards and two touchdowns in just one quarter of action in Saturday night's preseason game against the Colts.

This was Brees' 2014 preseason debut after he missed each of the first two exhibitions with an oblique injury. Surgical on New Orleans' opening drive, Brees hit FB Austin Johnson for a three-yard touchdown to cap it. He wound up playing just three possessions, threading a 13-yard touchdown to Marques Colston for his final score. Brees found a whipping boy in Colts ILB D'Qwell Jackson, who was beaten by Colston on the TD and Jimmy Graham for a 38-yard gain. Brees is surrounded by elite weapons in Colston, Graham, Kenny Stills, Brandin Cooks, and Pierre Thomas. He's a prime contender to lead all quarterbacks in fantasy scoring this year.

Drew Brees (oblique) is expected to play about a half in Saturday night's preseason game against the Colts.

Brees took some time to rest a strain in his side, but it was never a concern. He's back at practice and looking sharp. A fourth straight 5,000-yard season is very realistic.

Drew Brees (oblique) has resumed practicing fully at Saints camp.

The Saints got a number of key contributors back at Sunday's practice, including Brees and Kenny Stills (quad). With an absolutely loaded pass-catching corps and strong O-Line, Brees is a candidate to be this year's No. 1 fantasy QB.
Aug 17 - 6:43 PM

Drew Brees (oblique) is inactive for Friday night's preseason game.

Brees will miss his second straight preseason game. There's no concern over his Week 1 status. Marques Colston and Kenny Stills (quad) are also resting.
Aug 15 - 7:33 PM

Drew Brees (oblique) remains sidelined, and is considered unlikely to return for Friday's preseason game against the Titans.

The Saints are calling Brees day to day, but he's proving week to week after going down nine days ago. It's of zero concern for Brees' Week 1 status, but means players like first-round WR Brandin Cooks are missing out on valuable practice reps with their quarterback.

Drew Brees sat out the Saints' intrasquad scrimmage Saturday with a strained left oblique.

The injury is not considered serious, and Brees could be back as early as Monday. There are no questions about his long-term health. Continue to draft him as a top-three fantasy option.
Aug 2 - 11:19 AM

Drew Brees told the Associated Press he "hopes" to play into his 40s.

"Do I hope I can play into my 40s? Yes, I do," said Brees, who turned 35 in January. "As long as I'm healthy and playing at a high level, why not? I certainly don't take it for granted and know that obviously you've got to prove yourself every year." Brees is signed with the Saints through 2016, his age-37 campaign. He's been a top-two fantasy quarterback in five of the last six seasons.
May 23 - 2:14 PM

Drew Brees said he's willing to restructure his contract this offseason.

Don't interpret this the wrong way and assume Brees will take a pay cut to help out the organization. He said he'd restructure, a process of moving money around to kick salary cap concerns down the road. It happens constantly on every salary cap-strapped team in the league. Brees, who will turn 35 on Wednesday and is set to count $18.4 million against the 2014 cap, knows his championship window is getting smaller. "Whatever I can do to help this team," he said.
Jan 14 - 10:22 AM

Drew Brees completed 24-of-43 passes for 309 yards and a touchdown in New Orleans' 23-15, Divisional Round loss to the Seahawks.

Brees' final stats aren't indicative of the way he played. Brees entered halftime just 5-of-12 for 34 yards. The Seahawks dropped two readymade picks in the fourth quarter. Brees was certainly better after the break, but had trouble with the wind and rain, and couldn't find No. 1 option Jimmy Graham before New Orleans' futile final drive. It was a dismal ending to an otherwise stellar season, one that will fuel the narrative that he's not an elite quarterback outside of the Superdome. Either way, Brees' 5,162 regular-season passing yards were fifth most all time. He'll remain a top-three fantasy option for 2014.
Jan 11 - 7:52 PM

The forecast for Saturday's Saints-Seahawks game at CenturyLink Field is calling for a 70 percent chance of rain throughout and high winds ranging from 28-30 MPH.

Temperature won't be a problem -- it's in the 40s all day in Seattle -- but it's going to be rainy and very windy at the "Clink," which favors the hometown Seahawks versus the pass-happy Saints. The wind is expected to involve gusts even stronger than 30 MPH, a concern for passing. Seattle's defense already posed a physical mismatch for New Orleans' offense, and now has an extra advantage.

Drew Brees completed 20-of-30 passes for 250 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in Sunday's Wild Card win at Philadelphia.

The narrative coming in suggested that Brees wasn't the same on the road in cold weather, and it turned out to be true again. Outside of a pretty 24-yard touchdown to Lance Moore on a backside read and a 40-yard strike to Robert Meachem on a double move, Brees struggled to even manage the game. Both of the interceptions came on bad reads and the 250 yards were his third-lowest total of the season. Still, on the backs of the running game, Shayne Graham and the defense, the Saints have advanced to play at Seattle in the Divisional Round. When these two teams met in Week 13, Brees was held to 23-of-38 passing for 147 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions as the Seahawks won 34-7.
Jan 5 - 12:30 AM

Drew Brees completed 24-of-31 passes for 381 yards and four touchdowns in New Orleans' 42-17, Week 17 smashing of the Bucs.

Brees and the Saints came storming out of the gates as they typically do at home. Brees completed his first 11 passes and hooked up with Lance Moore, Jimmy Graham, Robert Meachem, and Kenny Stills for first-half touchdowns. Brees later added a nine-yard rushing touchdown to his stat line in the fourth quarter. He and the 11-5 Saints are locked in as the No. 6 seed in the NFC for the playoffs and will travel to the winner of the NFC East. Brees wraps up his regular season completing 446-of-650 passes (68.6 percent) for 5,162 yards, 39 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions. He added three more scores on the ground, and it was Brees' fourth time passing for 5,000 yards in a season.

Drew Brees (knee) is listed as probable for Week 17.

Brees was limited on Wednesday for rest purposes. He'll be all systems go for Sunday's matchup with the Bucs.
