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.

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 and his representation haven't yet had substantive contract talks with the team, according to general manager Mickey Loomis Thursday, Feb. 27, but a contract is expected to get done before the beginning of the new league year (March 18). 'We definitely have a goal to get it done before the league year begins,' Loomis said.
Huddle Up: All be status quo for the Saints' top offensive players in 2020 so long as Brees is re-signed. He'll be a top-end QB1, Michael Thomas will be a top wide receiver, Alvin Kamara will be a top running back and Jared Cook will be a mid-tier TE1.
