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 - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

In an offseason when we had a quarterback carousel, Drew Brees stayed put in New Orleans. Coming off a disappointing early playoff exit in 2019, New Orleans' Super Bowl window is closing, so the 41-year-old is giving it one last run. He still has Michael Thomas to throw to as well as a new friend in Emmanuel Sanders, who should complement Thomas very nicely. Even Tre'Quan Smith flashed at times in 2019.

Fantasy Downside

There's no really much of a downside to Brees other than the simple fact that he is 41 years old. He won't add anything on the ground like the top options will, but he'll still sling the football.

2020 Bottom Line

It is a bit odd that Brees isn't a high-end fantasy quarterback, but that's mainly because he doesn't run like Patrick Mahomes or Lamar Jackson or DeShaun Watson. But he's still Drew Brees and you can get him near the eighth round in drafts this year. He's currently our 10th-ranked quarterback, which just goes to show how deep the position is again this year.
