Brees played pretty well last week in fantasy terms which was good to see. Many owners were benching him in favor of decent streaming options because of his struggles on the road but he proved that you shouldn't bench your studs. This week he gets to play in New Orleans against the Pack in a game that should be up and down the field.

Brees has been struggling, but he is still on pace for over 5,000 yards passing and the Packers are just 22nd against fantasy quarterbacks the last 5 weeks. I expect Brees to have a big game in a high scoring contest.
Washington is 24th against fantasy quarterbacks the last 3 weeks, look for Romo to have low QB1 value this week.
