Saints | Drew Brees still confident in Coby Fleener

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 10:34:00 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener is off to a disappointing start in his new home and still building a rapport with QB Drew Brees. However, Brees believes as the two players begin to get more comfortable with each other and the team learns what Fleener does best versus man and zone coverage, the results will come. "We're able to get more specific every day. That's the thing during the offseason; everything is kind of general. It's the general form of the offense and concepts and that kind of thing. It's not until you get down to real game-planning that you get down to some of the nitty gritty and specific," Brees said.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener has three catches (for 35 yards) on 12 targets thus far, which speaks to his lack of comfort in the offense. With that said, he represents a solid buy-low. It should be noted that Ben Watson had five catches for 31 yards at this point last season on nine targets before finishing the year with 74 catches for 825 yards. Fleener will have another soft matchup in Week 3 against the Atlanta Falcons, who have yielded 15 catches for 138 yards and three touchdowns on 16 targets to tight ends thus far.

Saints | Drew Brees starts season off right

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 18:40:08 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 28 of his 42 pass attempts for 423 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 1 loss against the Oakland Raiders. Brees connected with WR Brandin Cooks on a 98-yard touchdown for the biggest play of the day.

Fantasy Tip: Brees looked great in the loss, putting up big numbers with the help of Cooks and Willie Snead. It's business as usual in the Big Easy, as Brees is a top-notch fantasy quarterback as the Saints will have an explosive offense in 2016. He faces another favorable matchup in Week 2 at N.Y. Giants.

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 07:23:06 -0700

Updating previous reports, New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees' new deal includes $44 million guaranteed and a $30 million signing bonus. He has a base salary of $1 million in 2016 with a $17.25 million cap hit and a $19 million cap hit next year.

Fantasy Tip: Brees will be tested early by the upstart Oakland Raiders in Week 1. He's a midrange QB1 this week, but it's a tough matchup.

Wed, 07 Sep 2016 12:27:22 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees has rekindled contract negotiations in the last week, and the two sides are expected to make a final push to strike a deal before the season opener.

Fantasy Tip: Brees remains a high-end QB1, but the history with his shoulder and his climbing age make him a risk. Be sure to have a viable backup.

Saints | Short night for Drew Brees

Thu, 01 Sep 2016 18:55:05 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees played one series in the preseason finale against the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, Sept. 1, completing three of his six passes for 40 yards.

Fantasy Tip: New Orleans has a potent offense and leaky defense, which should ensure Brees is a part of plenty of high-scoring shootouts this season. He is one of the safest bets to produce QB1 numbers.

Sat, 06 Aug 2016 20:29:02 -0700

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.
