2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
Much has been made about the demise of Drew Brees, as the first-ballot Hall of Famer finished as the number 10 quarterback in fantasy despite setting an NFL record with a completion percentage of 74.4.

Brees' 3992 passing yards and 489 pass attempts were the fewest since he joined the Saints back in 2007, and his No.10 ranking would have been even worse had he not posted a career-high of four rushing touchdowns.

Based on the team's commitment to run the ball and improvement to what for many years was a bad defense, the days of Brees throwing the ball 670 times for 5000 yards are likely a thing of the past. At age 40 and with Alvin Kamara and a stout offensive line, head coach Sean Payton is doing the smart thing for his football team by limiting the number of times Brees throws the ball and gets hit by opposing linebackers and defensive lineman.

Despite throwing for less than 4000 yards (It should be noted that Brees only played in 15 games), Brees did increase his passing touchdown total by nine from the previous season. His volume is down, but his efficiency went up, and he has averaged 2.5 rushing touchdowns in each of his last two seasons.

Sure, the days of Brees being a league-winning quarterback are likely over. But the NFL's all-time leading passer is still in command of a top-5 offense filled with talented skill position players. He may not get you 5000 yards, but he is falling in ADP and could be a nice option for owners who miss out on one of the top six quarterbacks - especially in leagues who punish quarterbacks for interceptions.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Drew Brees expected to start
Thumb injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Oct 26, 3:14 pm

New Orleans
Barring an unforeseen setback, the #Saints plan for quarterback Drew Brees to start Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, according to sources. (Ed Werder on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Sounds like Brees will give it a go despite the Saints having a bye in Week 9. This is a good matchup against the Cardinals even with Patrick Peterson back in the secondary for Arizona. No word yet on the status of RB Alvin Kamara.


Injury Brees, Kamara limited Friday; gametime decisions
Both listed as questionable on injury report
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 25, 4:30 pm

New Orleans
Sean Payton declined to name the New Orleans Saints' starting quarterback after Friday's practice, saying he will "probably wait until Sunday." But Drew Brees and running back Alvin Kamara both appear to have a good chance of returning from injuries against the Arizona Cardinals after they practiced again on a limited basis Friday. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Both Brees and Kamara were listed as limited participants in practice on Thursday and Friday. The Saints have a bye in Week 9 which would give their two starts extra time to heal but it sounds like each have a 50-50 chance of playing. Latavius Murray would be a RB1 against the Cardinals if Kamara sits.


Injury Drew Brees to return to practice this week
Hopes to be able to play in Week 8
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 20, 9:40 pm

New Orleans
Drew Brees said he plans to return to practice this week and hopes to be able to play as early as next Sunday's Week 8 home date with the Arizona Cardinals. "We'll see how it goes. I'd love to [play]. It's a goal," Brees told ESPN after the New Orleans Saints won their fifth straight game without him on Sunday at Chicago. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Brees is rehabbing his thumb injury suffered in Week 2 and the Saints have a bye in Week 9 so it won't be a surprise if sits out in Week 8. We should know more on his status after practice on Thursday.


Injury Drew Brees out 6 weeks, torn ligament in thumb
Surgery required
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Sep 16, 10:30 am

New Orleans
Saints' QB Drew Brees is expected to undergo thumb surgery as early as today that would be expected to sideline him approximately 6 weeks, per leagues sources. If the Saints decide to put Drew Brees on IR for the thumb surgery that is required, he would be unable to practice for six weeks and would to miss eight games. Saints also could not place him on IR and bring him back when ready. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: We got a sense yesterday when the injury occurred that Brees was going to miss some time. He couldn't grip the football and left the game with a hard cast on his thumb. Teddy Bridgewater will take over as the starting quarterback while Brees is out. This is a downgrade for all the Saints skill players including Alvin Kamara, Michael Thomas and Jared Cook. Bridgewater checks in as a middling QB2.
