NO QB Drew Brees - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 vs 49ers

It's the big rematch that lost some luster thanks to the 49ers' injuries. But it's a matchup Brees' owners have to feel pretty good about. Brees is coming off a season-high four touchdown passes against the Buccaneers. And as we all remember, Brees threw five touchdowns in the shootout last season against the 49ers. Having his full arsenal back is big for Brees. He comes in at No. 8 among QBs this week.

NO QB Drew Brees - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 vs Buccaneers

It's the big rematch in the NFC South between the Saints and Buccaneers. In Week 1, Brees only threw for 160 yards and two touchdowns but still led the Saints to victory at home. This time, it's in Tampa, a place where Brees threw three touchdowns in 2019. One of those was to Michael Thomas, who is expected to be back this week. Brees will need him in what should be an exciting Sunday night game (and hopefully much better than what we were subjected to in Week 8).

NO QB Drew Brees - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 vs Bears

The numbers, in general, haven't been horrible for Brees, but he's hit 300 yards just twice in six games and has been a middle-of-the-pack quarterback (15th thus far in points per game). But Brees may finally be getting Michael Thomas back in Week 8, which should boost the Saints offense, certainly needed against our fourth-toughest schedule-adjusted matchup against quarterbacks in the Chicago Bears.

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.

NO QB Drew Brees - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 vs Chargers

Brees is coming off 246 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in New Orleans' rally win over Detroit after being down 14-0 early in the game. Now, in what might be his final season, Brees gets one last game against the team that brought him into the league (though the team was of course in San Diego at the time). The last time Brees faced his former team, he went 23/36 for 207 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. The Chargers currently rank 25th in passing yards allowed per game. Brees is currently our No. 10 QB.

NO QB Drew Brees - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 vs Lions

Brees ended up having a very solid game on Sunday night against the Packers, going 29/36 for 288 yards and three touchdown passes. And that was still without Michael Thomas in the lineup. Alvin Kamara had nearly half of Brees' passing yards and two of his three touchdown passes. Brees might be getting Thomas back as Thomas returned to practice on a limited basis, so keep an eye out there. This is actually Brees' first trip to Detroit since 2014, where he threw for 342 yards and two touchdowns.

NO QB Drew Brees - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs Packers

Is Drew Brees done? That's been the question lately after his start to the 2020 season, which includes just three passing touchdowns and an interception. He gets a bit of slack for not having Michael Thomas, however. This week, he gets the Packers, who made Kirk Cousins look silly in Week 1 and did just fine against Matthew Stafford. Brees sits as our No. 15 QB this week.
