Drew Brees re-signs with New Orleans

Adam Schefter - [Full Article]

No one really expected Drew Brees and the Saints to part ways, and now it's official, as the Saints signal-caller will remain in New Orleans on a two-year deal worth $50 million, with $27 million in guarantees.

Fantasy Impact:

Despite not putting up the gaudy numbers we are accustomed to—Brees' passing yards (4,334) and touchdowns (23) were both the lowest he has thrown as a Saint—he still finished as the No. 9 fantasy QB last season. He will remain in the fantasy elite tier of quarterbacks in 2018.

Scouting Report

Week 5 vs. Washington Redskins

Drew Brees completed 18-of-32 passes for 217 yards and no touchdowns in the Saints’ Week 4 win over the Giants. New Orleans moved the ball successfully in the first half but often settled for field goals to cap off scoring drives. Making matters worse for Brees owners is that Taysom Hill saw some red zone opportunities throughout the game. Why Sean Payton trusts Hill over Brees in any situation inside the 20 is beyond me, but he’s the one with the Super Bowl ring. Brees should get back on track Monday night when the Saints host the Redskins. Washington has an underrated defense but Brees and the Saints have often been unstoppable at home. Ranked as our QB5, get him in your lineup for Monday.
