Saints | No extension for Drew Brees?

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 16:56:24 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees doesn't need to receive a contract extension for the team to get under the 2015 salary cap, according to head coach Sean Payton. Brees has two years left on his five-year, $100 million deal, with salary cap hits of $26.4 million and $27.4 million in 2015 and 2016. The Saints are currently projected at $25 to $30 million over the cap.

Fantasy Tip: Brees once again should be a top-tier QB1 in 2015, especially with Brandin Cooks expected to return for a healthy season. Brees managed 4,952 yards and 33 touchdowns in 2014 in a "down" year for New Orleans.

Saints | Drew Brees optimistic about future

Tue, 27 Jan 2015 15:53:58 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees said 2014 was the most frustrating season of his career, but remained optimistic about the team's future. "I think we've identified the problems or the things that got us beat or the things that didn't allow us to be as good as we know we can be, and we have the solution to fix it," Brees said. "It's going to take a lot of work, but I know we can get it done."

Fantasy Tip: Brees still threw for 4,952 yards and 33 touchdowns in 2014. He's proven to be one of the most consistent quarterbacks in fantasy football and real football. Consider him No. 1 quarterback option next season, as usual.

Saints | Drew Brees going to Pro Bowl

Fri, 09 Jan 2015 14:45:03 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees will play in the 2015 Pro Bowl in place of Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (neck).

Fantasy Tip: Brees nearly threw for 5,000 yards for the fourth consecutive year but finished with 4.952 yards. He has thrown for at least 30 touchdowns in seven straight years and should have most of his weapons in the passing game back for 2015. Owners should consider Brees as a No. 1 quarterback in their drafts next season.
