Wed, Jun 29th 5:28pm EDT
Over the past five seasons, Brees has averaged over 5,000 yards and 38 touchdowns. There is no more reliable fantasy player than Drew Brees. This off-season, the Saints added talented rookie receiver, Michael Thomas and a younger, more athletic tight end, Coby Fleener. Brees could break more records in 2016.

Brees completed 5 of 8 passes for only 29 yards with an INT.

Fantasy Impact: The Texans defense pressured Brees for the three series he played. He was sacked twice as his offensive line had trouble keeping him clean. Brees did hit Brandon Coleman for a 35 yard completion, but Coleman had the ball knocked out for an incompletion (originally called a fumble, but over turned) in Texans territory.

Brees was all over the map last season as far as fantasy performance goes, but he came on strong at the end of the year and Sean Payton didn't leave, so I see no reason to drop Brees that far in the rankings for 2016. I could easily see putting him ahead of Roethlisberger since Brees has shown more consistency in his career, but I just like Roethlisberger's receivers better. It took a while, but Brees was able to get on the same page with Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead, along with journeyman Ben Watson. I believe Cooks and Snead will start off 2016 stronger and keep Brees from sinking as far as he did in fantasy in 2015, and the addition of Michael Thomas and Coby Fleener should help as well

Has been top 5 in FAN PPG at QB in each of his 10 seasons in NO - there's nothing to indicate another near-5K passing yards, 30+ TD pass season isn't in the cards

Mark Ingram showed he can fill the void as a pass catching back last year and that's a major plus when it comes to Drew Brees. His ability to dink and dunk and use the screen game pushes up his numbers every year.

The safest pick at QB year in and out.

Brees is aging but the numbers are still there. When he was fully healthy last year, he was borderline unstoppable. Just brace for some off weeks on the road.

Brees turns 37-years old this year, but he still led the league with 4,870 yards passing and he had 32 touchdown passes. He is as consistent as any fantasy quarterback in the NFL, his worst finish since 2006 was the last two years, when he finished sixth both seasons. WR Michael Thomas will help a little, but Thomas is raw and will probably need a year or two to develop.
