Saints | Drew Brees sticking to contract deadline

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 22:02:09 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees said during training camp Thursday, July 28, he is sticking to his Week 1 contract extension deadline. "My mind will be on the preparation, week to week, on the next opponent," Brees said. "If there's (a deal) to be done, it's between now and the season."

Fantasy Tip: Brees is no longer the top fantasy quarterback, but he is still one of the safest bets to produce QB1 numbers.

Saints | No talks between Saints, Drew Brees

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 08:46:24 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees said he has not had contract extension talks with the Saints in the past three months. Brees said he would like to sign an extension at some point before the start of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Brees is entering the final year of his contract but will not hold out during training camp. Brees is still one of the better fantasy quarterbacks in the league even though he is 37 years old and should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Saints | Drew Brees confident in young receivers

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 09:19:08 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees has confidence in his young corps of wide receivers led by WR Brandin Cooks and WR Willie Snead.

"I think when Drew is out there, he doesn't look at Brandin Cooks as a young player," head coach Sean Payton said. "I don't think he looks at Snead that way anymore because of the experience they've had. There's a combination there of guys that know what to do and how do they fit with the scheme that we're asking of them."

Fantasy Tip: Brees is 37, but he led the league in passing yards last season and completed 68.3% of his passes. The 32 touchdowns limited his output some, but that could increase as the experience with this group increases. Cooks has the ability of a WR1 in fantasy, but he's probably better served as a WR2. Snead amassed 984 yards and three scores last year and is a serviceable WR3. Brandon Coleman is a breakout candidate as a WR4. As for Brees, he's just below the elite tier of fantasy QBs, but he should be one of the first options after the top three are gone.

Saints | Drew Brees likes Coby Fleener

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 12:47:04 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener has an uncanny ability to separate and get open, according to QB Drew Brees. "There's always a place to throw the ball where he can get it," Brees said. Fleener was targeted eight times during 7-on-7 drills and 11-on-11 drills this week -- the same number of targets as WRs Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener is one of the more intriguing options at tight end this season with his new team. In one of the most pass-happy offenses in the NFL, he's a mid- to low-end TE1, even if he still has some things to learn.

Saints | Andrus Peat more prepared for 2016

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 20:31:31 -0700

New Orleans Saints OT Andrus Peat has added muscle to his frame thanks to an improved diet, and QB Drew Brees said Peat is coming into his own. Peat said he would be happy playing either guard or tackle this season.

Saints | Drew Brees remains focused

Mon, 30 May 2016 13:34:42 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees has remained focus this offseason despite a potential future contract extension. Brees is able to keep his focus with whatever situation he is in, according to head coach Sean Payton. As was reported earlier, Brees and his representatives will not negotiate a contract during the 2016 season.

Fantasy Tip: Extension or no extension, Brees is still one of the most reliable real-life and fantasy quarterbacks, as he has been for several years now. He's in mid-QB1 territory for fantasy drafts this offseason.

Saints | Drew Brees won't negotiate in season

Thu, 26 May 2016 09:28:46 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees, who said he hasn't had contract extension talks in two months, will not negotiate a new contract during the 2016 season. He doesn't plan to miss any offseason activities, whether a deal gets done or not.

Fantasy Tip: Brees' numbers have declined since his ridiculous 2011 season when he threw for 5,476 yards and 46 touchdowns. He hasn't exactly fallen off a cliff, either, despite his roster becoming somewhat questionable the last couple of years. Brees is 37, but he's still one of the first signal callers you're going to target after the first three studs are gone. That will be even more evident if Tom Brady's suspension holds.

Saints | Drew Brees will report for workouts

Mon, 23 May 2016 17:07:43 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees said he will be on the field for organized team activities Tuesday, May 24, even though the two sides have not be able to reach an agreement on a contract extension.

Fantasy Tip: Brees has thrown at least 30 touchdowns in each of his last eight seasons and at least 4,000 yards in each of his last 10 seasons. He should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues even though he is 37 years old.

Saints | Drew Brees not close to the end

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 06:59:12 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees didn't put much stock into the reports the team was looking to trade up to land the No. 1 pick earlier this offseason and said he doesn't plan to retire any time soon.

"It wouldn't be the first time that I've been on a team where they took a quarterback in the first round to come take my position and I would take the exact same approach now that I did then, which is, it's my team, it's my job," Brees said. "I don't think there's any use in talking about it because I doubt it would happen. And if it did, I trust our organization. I trust Mickey (Loomis) and Sean (Payton). If there's somebody there that you feel like is going to be the future of our organization for years to come, then take him, but I don't plan on giving up my job anytime soon."

Fantasy Tip: Brees would usurp Tom Brady in the QB pecking order if Brady's suspension sticks. Brees isn't a top-three quarterback anymore, but he's one of the next QBs to consider.

Saints | Drew Brees wanted Josh Norman

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 12:04:49 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees was willing to amend his contract in order to acquire Washington Redskins CB Josh Norman.

Fantasy Tip: Brees is at the point in his career where he'll really do anything just to give the Saints the best chance to pursue a championship. Defense could be a big issue for New Orleans again in 2016, but that only means that Brees will likely still be passing frequently. He's a top QB1 again this season.
