Fantasy Impact: Brees is a completely different player on the road and has had a particularly difficult time with the Browns defense (he had 2 picks returned for a TD in their last meeting.) Brees should get back on track next week at home versus the Vikings.

"It reminds me of the game that we played here back in 2010," said Brees, who threw for 333 yards and a touchdown. "We went into overtime, we got the fumble, we kicked a field goal and we won. So, this matchup has gone back and forth quite a bit. Obviously, we've won our fair share. Unfortunately, we just fell a little short today." (Source: NOLA.com)

Fantasy Impact: Brees did throw one costly pick, but otherwise turned in a good fantasy day. Next week Brees will go against a Cleveland defense that gave up 365 passing yards to Ben Roethlisberger in week 1. He should be a top play next week.

Drew Brees had a great night during Saturday's preseason game against Indianapolis. He went 9-of-15 for 128 yards and 2 touchdowns. This was his first live game action of 2014. He had previously been held out with an oblique injury.

Fantasy Impact: This was exactly what the fantasy community wanted to see from Brees. He seems to be past the oblique problem and is setup to have a ridiculous season. Even though he can be occasionally erratic on the road, Brees will finish as a top-3 QB, with potential to finish #1 overall.

Fantasy Impact: Allee-Walsh suggested that Brees will make his pre-season debut Saturday night against the Indianapolis Colts. Starters usually play most of the 1st half in the 3rd preseason game, but the Saints may play it safe with Brees and only let him go a series or two.

Drew Brees sat out of Friday's preseason contest against the Titans to rest his sore oblique. He was spotted throwing passes during warmups. (Source: Mike Triplett on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: He's fine everyone. There have been no concerning reports about the elite QB missing any regular season games. It would be nice if Brees could get some live reps with rookie sensation Brandin Cooks, but Brees is so good it shouldn't be too much of a hinderance. Continue to draft Brees as you normally would.

Brees has been sidelined for a week and a half with an abdominal injury, so it's a good sign to see him out at practice in pads. (Source: WWL 870 am Radio)

Fantasy Impact: WWL Saints Sideline Reporter Kristian Garic said "I still don't expect him to play Friday night in the second preseason game." As previously mentioned, the Saints are in no rush to get Brees on the field. You will only see him at 100% and probably only for a series or two.

Ed Werder tweeted today that he expects the Saints to "be cautious with Drew Brees strained oblique" and "wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't return until next week." (Source: Ed Werder ESPN on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Saints don't want any setbacks, so there is no need to rush the veteran Brees back anytime soon. However, Brandin Cooks is missing valuable playing time with Brees and their timing could be a little off if the Saints QB stays out for an extended time.

No official word yet, but media outlets in New Orleans have been reporting it's unlikely Drew Brees will play Friday in St. Louis against the Rams due to his strained oblique injury. (Source: WDSU TV)

Fantasy Impact: Head coach Sean Payton said, "We will make sure it's something that won't be aggravated again." I doubt Brees will play. Even if he was 100% he would only play a series or two.

Drew Brees missed the Saturday scrimmage after straining his left oblique during Friday morning's practice. The injury is not considered serious and has been labeled day-to-day. (Source: New Orleans Times-Picayune)

Fantasy Impact: This doesn't appear to be anything serious. Brees should still be drafted as an elite QB. Look for an update on Monday when the Saints return to practice. Brees' current ADP is 15.

Drew Brees has stated he would like to play in the NFL until he turns 45. This would put him in an elite longevity club, generally reserved for kickers. Brees (who turns 36 this season) has overcome tremendous obstacles in his career already, making this all the more plausible. (Source: New Orleans Times-Picayune)

Fantasy Impact: This is the kind of thing dynasty and keeper league owners like to hear. Knowing that Brees still has the passion and desire to play another 10 seasons is tremendously comforting. He remains a top 3 option at QB and looks like he may stay there longer than people would imagine. Brees is currently the 2nd QB being drafted with an ADP of 15.

The Vikings are allowing the fewest points to fantasy quarterbacks this year, but I expect a big game from Brees at home trying to avoid a (0-3) start.
FFLockerRoom | Sep 18th
Starting 0-2, this season is starting to mirror 2013 to a T. They have lost Mark Ingram for about a month due to a hand injury so they will be passing often. As long as the Saints' talented receivers gain back some health Brees should dominate Minnesota's defense.
Fantasy Sports LR | Sep 18th
With a home date against Minnesota on tap, Drew Brees has a chance to right some early season wrongs for his investors. He averaged over 28 FPPG in the dome last season.

Minny looking solid on D but he rarely lays an egg two weeks in a row and it's Saints home opener.

Drew Brees Injury Update New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has been sidelined since August 1 with a strained oblique (side) muscle. The injury has prevented the eight-time Pro Bowler from practicing since, and Brees missed Friday night’s preseason victory over the St. Louis Rams, leaving the majority of the quarterbacking duties to Luke McCown and Ryan Griffin.
