New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 26-of-38 passes for 312 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 2 against the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday, Sept. 21.
Huddle Up: Brees went over 300 yards in the final ticks of regulation, which was nice for those in fantasy leagues which reward a bonus for a 300-yard game. Other than that it was a rather marginal game for the Saints, who have not started 2-0 since the 2013 season. Next up for Brees and the Saints is a home game with the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football in Week 3.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees is Pro Football Focus' highest-graded quarterback over the last two seasons when kept free from pressure.
Huddle Up: As Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill get set to compete for the Saints' backup role, there's little reason to believe Brees doesn't have multiple seasons left in him. The 41-year-old is under contract for the next two seasons and seems as though he will be an elite fantasy QB until he calls it quits.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees threw a catchable ball on 82.8 percent of his pass attempts in 2019, according to Sports Info Solutions. The only other time a quarterback topped that mark over the last five seasons was when Brees threw a catchable ball 83.6 percent of the time in 2018.
Huddle Up: Brees owns the top three - and five of the top six - single-season marks in terms of completion percentage in NFL history, so it comes as no surprise so many of passes have been considered catchable. Age (he turned 41 in January) and the Saints' ability to run the ball in recent years has turned Brees into more of a matchup-based starter in fantasy, but there is no question he can still perform like a QB1 on occasion - especially inside the Superdome.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees threw an NFL-high 15 touchdowns over the final four games of 2019, tossing at least three touchdowns in every game.
Huddle Up: The Saints have adopted more of a balanced offensive approach in recent years, but Brees has maintained QB1 numbers thanks in large part to his remarkable efficiency. He has thrown 59 touchdowns compared to just nine interceptions over the past two years, completing more than 74 percent of his passes in both seasons.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees threw an on-target pass - defined as a pass that did or would have hit the receiver - on a league-high 84.1 percent of his throws in 2019.

New Orleans Saints impending free-agent QB Drew Brees agreed to a two-year deal worth about $50 million with the Saints Tuesday, March 17.
Huddle Up: Brees has lost a bit on his arm, but he still has a great situation around him that should keep him a midrange QB1 in fantasy.

Free-agent QB Drew Brees is close to finalizing a deal to remain with the New Orleans Saints, and the deal could be completed Tuesday, March 17.
Huddle Up: Brees was still a top-tier fantasy quarterback in 2019 despite the fact he is getting a little long in the tooth. Nothing is expected to change in 2020, and he'll once again be a QB1 in fantasy leagues across the board.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees reiterated Thursday, March 5, that he plans to re-sign with the Saints and added that he plans to finish his career in the Big Easy as well. 'Listen, I have no intention of going anywhere,' Brees said Thursday during a charity event. 'I don't care what the offer would be or what the situation might be, I am Who Dat Nation for life.'
Huddle Up: Despite missing five games, Brees finished tied for seventh among QBs with 23.9 fantasy points per game and will once again be in the back end of the QB1 conversation again this summer -- even at age 41.
