Brees is in the midst of a typically excellent season, completing 69.1% of his passes with eight touchdowns through four games. He'll take on a tough Lions defense that allows the eighth-fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this weekend. But off a bye and at home, there's simply no doubting Brees, and he's a fairly obvious top-five play here.

Drew Brees throws for two touchdowns in Week 6

Drew Brees threw for two touchdowns and two interceptions on 21 of 31 passing and 186 yards in Sunday's wild game against Detroit.

Fantasy Impact

Brees had a pretty solid game considering the amount of points scored by the defenses in the game. He is a top start every week going forward with his bye being last week.
