Draft note
by John Paulsen
After 11-straight finishes in the top six at his position from 2006 to 2016, Brees has finished No. 10 and No. 8 in the last two seasons, thanks in large part in a drop in volume as the Saints have gone more run-heavy offensively. From 2006 to 2016, the Saints averaged 641.5 pass attempts per season. Over the last two seasons, they have averaged 527.5 pass attempts. Brees’ increase in efficiency has offset some of this loss in volume, but he’s no longer a no-brainer QB1. However, he is still elite at home--he averaged 322 yards and 3.0 pass touchdowns in eight home games last season.

NO QB Drew Brees - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 at Rams

Early on, does it look like the Saints are going back to letting Drew Brees sling the football? Brees threw the ball 43 times in Week 1 against the Texans, completing 32 passes for 370 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. And Brees will likely see plenty of opportunities again on Sunday in what is probably the most-anticipated game of the season against the Los Angeles Rams. He threw 36 times in the regular-season matchup in 2018 and 40 times in the NFC Championship Game, averaging about 290 yards and three touchdowns in those two games. You know emotions will be running high in this one and points could be aplenty, so Brees will post another fine start Sunday.
