Draft note
by John Paulsen
The Saints have the fourth-best odds to win the Super Bowl, so Brees is rejoining a very strong team. He missed five games and was injured early in Week 2, but in the other 10 games, he averaged 22.5 fantasy points, which would have been second only to Lamar Jackson in terms of per game production last season. He continues to have extreme home/away splits, but as the 12th quarterback off the board in early best ball drafts, owners can afford to pair him with another QB or stream the position when Brees has away games in unfavorable situations.

NO QB Drew Brees - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 vs Panthers

Brees is coming off a bye week after helping lead the Saints to a strong comeback victory in Week 5 against the Chargers. He comes out of the bye against a team he had a lot of success against in 2019, the Carolina Panthers. Brees tossed six touchdown passes and just one interception in the two meetings last season. However, Carolina is actually our No. 1 toughest matchup this week against opposing quarterbacks. Carolina has done well pressuring the quarterback and their secondary has played much better than expected, though Juston Burris is now on injured reserve. Brees is our No. 14 QB this week but still worthy of a start.
