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 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Panthers

Brees didn't crack 300 yards against the Titans but still came away with three touchdown passes. And despite a reported knee issue over the weekend, Brees looks to be having no trouble heading into Carolina for Week 17. There's no chance of the starters resting in this one with the Saints still in play for a first-round bye and possibly the No. 1 seed in the NFC. As of now, the only quarterback we have ranked higher this week is Patrick Mahomes, thanks to Baltimore resting Lamar Jackson. Brees is ready to bring home more fantasy championships in Week 17.
