2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
With his record-setting passing performance in 2011, Brees finished the season as the top ranked fantasy quarterback, averaging 29.5 FPts/G. He eclipsed Dan Marinoís single-season passing yardage record with 5,476 yards while throwing for a career-high 46 touchdowns. Better yet, he cut down on his interceptions, going from a career-high 22 in 2010 to just 14 last season. Things couldnít be looking rosier, right? Well, Bountygate has put a cloud over the Saints and Breesí outlook for the 2012 season with head coach Sean Payton suspended for the entire year. Paytonís absence has to have a negative impact on the teamís offensive production and letís face it; it is folly to chase last yearís fantasy production so predicting 5,500 passing yards and 45 touchdowns for Brees is foolhardy. Brees will remain a fantasy stud in 2012 but 5,000 yards and 35-40 touchdown passes seems far more realistic. After Aaron Rodgers, Brees deserves consideration as being the number two quarterback on your draft board along with Tom Brady, Matt Stafford and Cam Newton.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Drew Brees expected to start Sunday     -- Fri Oct 2 5:50 pm --

QB to return to lineup following shoulder injury
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees will start on Sunday after successfully testing his injured right shoulder in practice this week, coach Sean Payton said after Friday's practice. "I think he's planning on starting and we're planning on starting him," Payton said. "He looked crisp today. I think he's going to end up starting and based on the way the week unfolded each day, I felt like he's made the progress we're looking for." Payton said Brees did not have a torn rotator cuff. "The diagnosis was never a tear," he said. (New Orleans Times-Picayune)

FF Today's Take: The Saints are looking to chalk up their first victory in 2015, and are hoping for better from Brees than they've received thus far. He'll be in tough against the Cowboys' stingy defense. It's worth noting that over his last two meetings with Dallas, he's amassed 732 passing yards and six touchdowns, but both performances came with Jimmy Graham in the lineup.
Injury Drew Brees to test shoulder today     -- Tue Sep 29 9:35 am --

Saints QB will throw for first time since Friday
Ed Werder reports on Twitter that Drew Brees plans to test his injured shoulder today, the first time since Friday he's thrown a football. (Ed Werder (Twitter))

FF Today's Take: As of right now, Brees isn't a great fantasy option for a team that's struggling to get its passing game clicking. Mark Ingram remains a solid RB2 and Khiry Robinson/C.J. Spiller are deep flex options, but most of the receivers will need Brees to be healthy to realize their full potential.

Shoulder injury

FF Today's Take: The 0-2 Saints are in a rough spot traveling to Carolina without their starting quarterback. Brees (shoulder) reportedly didn't have enough zip on his passes in practice this week. Downgrade the Saints' skill position players and upgrade the Carolina-D.
Injury Drew Brees confident he'll start     -- Wed Sep 23 6:04 pm --

Bruised shoulder
At his Wednesday press conference, Brees said that he's "pretty confident" that he'll be able to play, adding that he has "every intention of playing." (

FF Today's Take: Drew Brees didn't throw a football today and will likely be limited in practice all week long. The Saints threw the ball to ten different players last week and haven't scored more than one passing touchdown in each of their first two games. With Brees likely at less than 100-percent and the Panthers defense a quality opponent, fantasy owners will want to consider other options in Week 3.
Injury Brees' Week 3 status to be determined     -- Mon Sep 21 5:35 pm --

Injured shoulder in Week 2 loss to Tampa Bay
An MRI confirmed that New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees did not suffer a serious shoulder injury in the team's loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday in the Superdome, according to an ESPN reporter. ESPN NFL insider reporter Ed Werder reported Thursday, citing a source, that Brees experienced "pain, weakness in passing shoulder from TB hit. Had MRI." Brees' playing status will be determined by the response to treatment, Werder said. (WDSU New Orleans)

FF Today's Take: Stay tuned. Earlier Monday, was reported that Brees could miss "several games", but this report makes it sound as if he has a decent shot to play in Week 3 against Carolina. Even before this injury, the Saints' offense was not been clicking on all cylinders, so Brees probably deserves a spot on fantasy benches for the time being if owners have another decent alternative like Carson Palmer or Andy Dalton. Luke McCown would start if Brees can't play this week.
Randy Moss on Brandin Cooks: "Sky's the limit"     -- Fri Aug 21 4:00 pm --

Second-year WR set to become Drew Brees favorite target
Randy Moss, a seven-time Pro Bowl receiver who was born and raised in West Virginia, stopped by the New Orleans Saints training camp on Thursday at the Greenbrier resort. He was there to see old friends on the New England Patriots, including quarterback Tom Brady, but he also had an interest in watching Saints receiver Brandin Cooks. "With Graham gone, that means a lot more targets are going to be coming his way," Moss said. "Just by looking at his body, it looks like he's ready to take on that challenge. He's a good receiver. I'm not going to call him great. But the sky's the limit. He's in a great offense. He's got a great quarterback in Drew Brees. The sky's the limit for whatever he wants to do in this offense, and I think Sean Payton's going to put him in a position to make plays." (New Orleans Times-Picayune)

FF Today's Take: As a rookie last season, Cooks hauled in 53 receptions for 550 yards and three TDs last year in just 10 games - only seven of which he was a starter. It's reasonable to believe that he will double those totals over a full 16 game season.
Jimmy Graham expects to be blocking a lot more     -- Tue Aug 4 8:50 am --

Seahawks TE may no longer be go-to offensive cog
Graham's early debut with the Seahawks has been exactly what was expected, but there are significant differences between what Graham will do in Seattle and what he was asked to do in New Orleans. Blocking was rarely a priority with the Saints because of their pass-happy offense led by Drew Brees. With the Seahawks, blocking is a priority on par with making receptions. "It's very important for me to be a part of that here because that's about 75 percent of the offense here and if you have a back like (Marshawn Lynch), you want to be in there on those explosive runs and you want to be part of that," Graham said. (Associated Press)

FF Today's Take: We're not bullish on Graham's chances to resume the type of fantasy production he saw at his peak in New Orleans, and reaching the 80-reception mark will be a challenge in this offense. Graham seems to be sold on the concept of a '75 percent' running game, and he'll still be a viable third-down option red zone threat -- just not the clear-cut top fantasy TE and difference maker he was in the past.
