2016 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Aug-04-2016 by Shawn Childs


Early in the 2015 season, there was some concern that Brees would have a lost year due to a rotator cuff issue in his right shoulder. He missed Week 3, but his arm held value with more of his success coming after Week 7. In his first six games, Drew had four games with 300 yards passing or more, but he only managed six TDs. The porous defense of the Giants led to monster correction game in Week 8 (505 yards and seven TDs). Over his last eight games of the season, Brees had four games with three TDs (all at home) and five games with over 300 yards passing. He threw 23 of his 32 TDs at home. In his career, Drew has 124-92 record with one Super Bowl title. He's completed 400 passes in six straight years and eight of his last nine seasons. Over his last 95 games, Brees averaged 41.3 passes for 318 yards and 2.4 TDs per game. Drew currently ranks 4th all-time in passing yards (60,903). Based on his pace, he would have to play two and a half more years to pass Peyton Manning (71,940), but he does have Tom Brady (58,028) back drafting him up the leaderboard. Brees also needs 111 more TDs to tie Peyton while also being tied with Tom Brady in career passing TDs (428 - 4th). At age 37, his value continues to rank highly in the league with an elite passing opportunity. Drew tends to make the talent around him better, and the Saints did add two receiving upgrades (Michael Thomas and Coby Fleener) in the offseason. Brees offer a high floor with more explosiveness at home. His bar should be about 5000 yards with 32+ TDs.
