Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints impending free-agent QB Drew Brees said he plans to 'give it a month or so' before determining if he will return to the team for the 2020 season or retire. He had previously stated that he is not considering playing for any other teams.
Huddle Up: Despite turning 41 years old earlier this month and missing several games in 2019 due to a thumb injury, Brees should still be under consideration as a low-end QB1 option in all fantasy formats if he chooses to return to New Orleans for another year.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees isn't rushing his decision on whether he'll return for another season. I wanted to give it at least a few weeks, months, postseason, just to take a deep breath and decompress a little bit and get some time with the family and then just reassess,' Brees said Wednesday, Jan. 22, during an interview at the Pro Bowl.
Huddle Up: Brees just turned 41 and is coming off a season where he missed five games due to a thumb injury, but he still finished eighth among fantasy QBs with an average of 23.9 fantasy points per game while helping guide the Saints to another NFC South title. He'll be in the low-end QB1 discussion once again if he's back for his 15th season in the Big Easy.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees declined to make any comment on his future in the wake of the team's Wild Card loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Jan. 5. Brees turns 41 later this month and is set to become an unrestricted free agent.
Huddle Up: Brees played well, posting a 27-to-4 TD:INT ratio despite missing five full games and most of another, but his season once again ended in playoff disappointment. It's possible Brees could retire, or the team might ask Teddy Bridgewater, who went 5-0 as a starter, or even Taysom Hill to become the new QB1 regardless of what Brees elects to do. It should make for an interesting offseason.
