Call me crazy, but I haven't given up on Brees yet. He's completed 72 percent of his passes, the highest mark of his career. He's throwing for 8.0 yards per attempt, the third-highest mark of his career. Is he throwing the ball less? Sure, but his touchdown rate is what's lacking and that's due to the ground game's success. They've now scored 10 rushing touchdowns in the last five games, while throwing just five touchdowns in that span. I'm not saying the ground game is going to fall off, but it's going to regress, whereas Brees is going to pick up that slack. The Redskins have now allowed three top-six performances in their last four games, and the only game they didn't was when Dak Prescott didn't need to throw the ball because Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 150 yards and two touchdowns. Not to say Brees' run game can't do that, but I'm betting on Brees at home to get back into the top-tier of QB1's this week.

Drew Brees with one touchdown in Week 10 win

Drew Brees threw for 184 yards on 18 of 25 passing and had one rushing touchdown in the Saints' Week 10 win against the Bills.

Fantasy Impact

While Brees is an elite quarterback and an every-week start, the fact is that the Saints have become a rushing team, particularly in the red zone. With an excellent defense, Brees simply isn't asked to air it out much anymore, and fantasy owners need to accept that Brees is now just a solid, but perhaps not elite, fantasy quarterback.
