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.

Drew has been a top 2 fantasy QB for three consecutive seasons now.
Fantasy Team Advice | Aug 21st
Drew Brees has now recorded a 5000+ yard passing season for 3 consecutive years, and shows no signs of slowing down. Expect another big year out of the big play quarterback and the explosive Saints offense

Aging gracefully (so far), still has ample pass-catching weaponry.
Legion Report | Aug 21st
Brees has been a Top 2 Fantasy QB in 5 of the last 6 seasons. He’s a dead-lock for 5,000 Passing Yards and 40 TDs. Our Top 4 QBs are “can’t miss” options and are a large grade above the rest. Pretty standard stuff here, you know what you’re getting from Brees and you get it!
The Fake Football | Aug 20th
Any of the top 3 could be here, but I just feel that Brees is going to be your safest pick as the top guy. He's pretty much been a Top-2 fantasy QB for his whole time in New Orleans and that isn't changing soon. And the reason he is so low on my overall rankings is because I would wait on any quarterback until about here.

A safe QB selection that can put up 4,000 yards and over 35 TDs every year.

Brees is a machine. The only question is, will the Saints scale things back as they try to get more balanced?
FFLockerRoom | Aug 20th
While it is close, FFLockerRoom gives the nod to Brees over Aaron Rodgers. While it is close, Brees has remained healthier, has been more consistent and bests Rodgers in FFLockerRoom's True Proficiency Game Average. http://fflockerroom.com/2014/07/25/2014-fantasy-football-draft-preparation-quarterback-proficiency/
Yahoo! Sports | Aug 19th
Past 3-year average is insane: 5,272 passing yards, 44.3 combined pass/rush TDs
Fantasy Football Maniax | Aug 19th
Brees is about as sure of a thing as you can find in fantasy football, he has finished either first or second among fantasy quarterbacks in five of the last six seasons. TE Jimmy Graham resolving his contract dispute with a four-year contract was a big development for the Saint's offense. Also, rookie WR Brandin Cooks has looked impressive in training camp, which should help an already dangerous offense.
Fantasy Sports LR | Aug 17th
As I noted last year, Brees may post better cumulative numbers than Rodgers, but the home/road slips and quasi boom/bust nature (the weekly bust floor on Brees is still high, I know) troubles me

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. Moving […] Orig...

There is no question that Brandin Cooks has the potential to surpass Kenny Stills' rookie numbers and step up into a starting role immediately in his rookie season. The only cause for concern in terms of fantasy production is the crowded house that is the Saints offense.

One of our Member Corner writers makes a case to get Drew Brees instead of passing on younger options.
