2015 Outlook: Stud (low risk)Last updated on Sep-30-2015 by Shawn Childs
UPDATE (9/30): A slow start coupled with a shoulder injury should have Fantasy owners very concerned about Drew Brees. Age may be a factor, but the Saints' offense isn't doing him any favors. The Saints need more out of their receiving corps, but there just aren't many great options not named Brandin Cooks. Brees should be downgraded until the Saints' offense shows some signs of life. He is a very risky Fantasy play until he proves he can perform like the Brees of old.
For the fourth time in his nine seasons with the Saints, Brees led the NFL in completions (456). In eight of those years, Drew has completed 413 or more passes. In addition, Brees led the league in passing yards (4,952) for the fifth time in his career. He's thrown 33 TDs or more in each of his last seven seasons, but he has declined slightly each year since throwing a league-high 46 touchdowns in 2011. His resume is one of the best in the game, but his upside is limited by his receiving options. Marques Colston isn't the same player he once was, and Brees no longer has stud tight end Jimmy Graham. I like the upside of C.J. Spiller as part of the passing game, and Brandin Cooks has the talent to be a high-upside wideout. There's no doubt Brees is going to air the ball out as he's averaged 657 pass attempts over his last five seasons. His value in 2015 will rely on his ability to simply score touchdowns. His surrounding receiving talent suggests that total will be closer to 30 than 40. The bar will be at about 4,800 yards and 30 TDs. Although he remains a top-five QB, Drew is closer to No. 5 than No. 1.

|4.06||RotoExperts - My strategy is either take one of the top three quarterbacks at a value or wait it out at the position. Brees in the fourth round is the type of value I'll take every time.|
