Brees is the only fantasy QB to finish in the top six at the position each of the past two seasons. In fact, the last time he didn't finish in the top six was 2005. He is the gold standard of consistency and should be regarded as such. He has missed just two games in the past 12 seasons and has led the NFL in passing yards five of the previous six seasons. Brees has thrown over 650 passes each of his last 6 fully healthy seasons.

Drew Brees has gas left in the tank

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees believes he has at least "a few more" years left in his playing career in the NFL. "When you first get into the league you think you're invincible, right?" Brees said via Good Morning Football. "You think you're going to last forever. But I understand now, I'm just finishing my 16th season and I'm probably a little closer to the end than I am the beginning. So I just want to create a tremendous sense of urgency for every single year. I don't want to look any further past this year and what's right in front of us. Especially with what we've gone through over the last three years while watching other teams from the NFC South go to the Super Bowl."

Fantasy Impact

Brees, 38, will be entering his 17th season in the NFL. He is coming off of a 2016 campaign in which he passed for at least 5,000 yards for the first time since 2013. Playing in all 16 games in 2016, he produced a 5,208-37-15 quarterback stat line while continuing to play at an extremely high-level high level despite his age. As 2017 is his contract year, Brees will hit the open market in the 2018 offseason if the Saints fail to re-sign him to an extension.
