While everyone else tries to figure out who he'll will throw to and which running back will get the majority of the carries, just take Brady and enjoy your points.Just a bit outside of the top-tier of quarterbacks, Brees is still a set-it-and-forget-it quarterback. Much have been made of his road splits, but he is simply ‘less great' on the road. Over the last two years on the road he averages 297 passing yards, 1.73 touchdowns, and 0.93 interceptions, or 17.9 fantasy points per game. That average over 16 games would have been the No. 7 quarterback last year. Not so bad, eh?

Brady will be 76 this season, but since he's a system quarterback, I expect he'll be fine. Plus, the addition of Brandin Cooks and hopefully a healthy Rob Gronkowski should make give Brady plenty of upside, even at his ripe old age.Brees isn't the player he once was, but he's still lights out in New Orleans and has a strong group of receivers. I don't expect he'll slow down too much this coming season.

Brady had only 3,554 yards and 28 passing touchdowns, but that was in only 12 games. The only concern is that he turns 40-years old this year, but he is in great health and the addition of WR Brandin Cooks should help this offense.Brees still has the tools to be an elite fantasy quarterback. At 37-years old, he had 5,208 yards passing, 37 touchdown passes and 2 rushing touchdowns. The offense is loaded with young talent, I expect him to have another big season at 38-years old, even with WR Brandin Cooks being traded to the New England Patriots.
