Saints QB Drew Brees thinks he can play at 45

Saints quarterback Drew Brees @drewbrees is entering his 14th year in the league. Very few players are physically able to live an NFL life for that long, but Brees' body is in good shape, and he believes that he may have 40 percent of his career still ahead of him. Speaking with's Albert Breer on Friday, Brees said there's "no doubt" he could play into his mid-40s.
"I'm not getting ahead myself, like it's a pipe dream, at 45," Brees said. "I understand the challenges that come along with that. But why not? If I can stay healthy, and I'm having fun and playing at a high level, why wouldn't I wanna do that? The biggest challenge is physically, the maintenance, the recovery, the way you train. You gotta hope that you stay healthy, but why not?"
Brees has been able to stay healthy for the past decade. He's missed just one game since 2004.

Fantasy Analysis:

We've heard this before from Brees. He's entering his age-35 season and shows absolutely no signs of his age other than how his vast experience allows him to school young defenders. You can lock Brees into 5,000 yards and 40 touchdowns this season and probably at least a couple more seasons. It sounds crazy, but that's become the norm for him.
