The 49ers were dealing with a few injuries last week, but whew… Brees absolutely buried them while throwing for 349 yards and five touchdowns (also added a rushing touchdown). Coming into that game, they'd never allowed more than two touchdowns, and just four quarterbacks had thrown for more than one. They lost the game, but it certainly wasn't on Brees, who posted the fourth-best fantasy game by a quarterback in 2019. The Colts haven't been as tough on opposing quarterbacks, as they've allowed seven quarterbacks to throw for at least 296 yards. There have been six quarterbacks who've averaged 6.3 yards per attempt or less, while there's been seven quarterbacks who've averaged at least 8.3 yards per attempt. Those who haven't: Nick Foles, Derek Carr, Marcus Mariota, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Mason Rudolph, and Joe Flacco. Let's just go ahead and say Brees isn't a part of that group. They've allowed a massive 69.2 percent completion-rate, which meshes well with the record-setting Brees who's completed at least 70 percent of his passes in four straight seasons (including 73.6 percent this year). With the run-game struggling to get going and the defense dealing with quite a few injuries, Brees may throw a bit more than usual. Play him as a middling QB1 here.

Fantasy Impact
