Drew Brees completed 28-of-45 passes for 342 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Saints' Week 7 loss to the Lions.
Brees played well most of the day, but threw a critical interception late in the fourth quarter that led to the Lions' game-winning touchdown. Brees was 3-of-14 in the fourth quarter, and 2-of-7 on the Saints' failed comeback drive. Despite the Saints' struggles, Brees has now gone over 340 yards in three straight games, and is averaging almost two touchdowns a game this season. Oct 19 - 4:43 PM

Drew Brees completed 35-of-57 passes for 371 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions in the Saints' Week 5 win over the Bucs.

Brees wasn't very good in this one. He averaged just 6.5 YPA and threw two awful interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown by Danny Lansanah. On the first pick, Brees was falling to the ground while trying to escape pressure. It was much of the same on the second one that went for the score, as Brees was stumbling backward and just threw the ball up in the air for grabs to nobody in particular. Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas won this game for the Saints after Jimmy Graham was lost to a shoulder injury early in the first half. Brees and the Saints head into their bye before traveling to Detroit in Week 7.
Oct 5 - 5:06 PM

The Buccaneers' defense has given up a league-worst 75.8 percent completion percentage to opposing quarterbacks this season.

They have also given up the fifth most touchdown passes to opposing quarterbacks, and only have one interception on the season. (They picked off T.J. Yates in garbage time versus Atlanta.) Drew Brees has struggled somewhat out of the gate, but he should destroy the Tampa Bay defense this week in the Superdome.

Drew Brees completed 32-of-44 passes for 340 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in Sunday night's loss to the Cowboys.

The Cowboys shut down Brees in the first half, with both of his touchdown passes not coming until the fourth quarter. His interception was a tipped pass to Cowboys LB Justin Durant. Brees spread the ball to nine different receivers, and hit Jimmy Graham and Josh Hill for his two scores. He's on pace for 4,812 yards, 28 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions through four games. Brees will be a top-three option against the Bucs in Week 5.
Sep 28 - 11:47 PM

Drew Brees completed 27-of-35 passes for 293 yards and two touchdowns in New Orleans' 20-9, Week 3 win over the Vikings.

Aside from his 34-yard touchdown strike to reserve TE Josh Hill in the first quarter, there weren't many big plays to be had for Brees, but he compensated by taking whatever the Vikings gave him. It was a ruthlessly efficient day for a player coming off back-to-back road losses. Brees' start is slower than his fantasy owners envisioned, but he has two strong matchups — at Dallas, home vs. Tampa Bay — before the Saints go on bye in Week 6.
Sep 21 - 4:13 PM

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.
Aug 23 - 9:03 PM

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.

Aug 21 - 11:06 AM

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.

Aug 11 - 5:35 PM

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.
