Brees continues to play well, but his fantasy output remains well below the level of what fantasy owners had come to expect throughout the years. The Saints' strong defense, combined with an elite running game, result in Brees simply not needing to make many plays. Thursday's game against the Falcons could provide the rare opportunity for Brees to need to air it out, as the game projects to be high scoring, and the Falcons have battled injuries to their secondary. At this point, however, Brees is simply a middling QB1 option, albeit one worthy of a start on Thursday.

Drew Brees throws two touchdowns in loss

Drew Brees was a solid 26 for 35 for 271 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Saints' loss against the Falcons on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Brees had roughly the same stat line this week as he did last week despite losing Alvin Kamara to a concussion. Going forward, this should be the expected game especially if Kamara is forced to miss any time. Brees is a starting quarterback going forward for your fantasy playoff team, of course.
