It appears that the New Orleans Saints and Drew Brees haven't had discussions on a new deal for the veteran signal caller in months. ESPN's Mike Triplett is reporting that the Saints haven't spoken to Brees about a contract since approaching him about restructuring his current agreement in order to make cap room to sign Josh Norman earlier in the offseason.

Fantasy Impact: Drew Brees and the New Orleans Sants appear to be in a quandary in regards to a new deal for the veteran passer. Reports suggest that there is a non-official deadline set for the sides to come to terms on a contract that falls at the start of the regular season on September 11. Brees told the media that he would not take part in contract negotiations during the season and would reach the open free agent market this offseason they don't come to terms on an agreement.

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.

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.

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 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.

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 him that far in the rankings. 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 next season Cooks and Snead will start off stronger and keep Brees from sinking as far as he did in fantasy this year and the addition of Michael Thomas and Coby Fleener should help as well.
