Brees is off to an impressive start by mere mortal standards, but a disappointing one by his standards, as he's thrown for 647 yards and three touchdowns without turning the ball over in his first two contests. He now gets a Carolina defense that he knows well, and against which he threw for 285 yards and two touchdowns last season in the teams' matchup in Carolina. It's difficult to gauge the Panthers defense, as they've played the offensively-challenged 49ers and Bills so far, so we shouldn't read much into the fact that they have yet to allow a touchdown pass yet. But on the road in a divisional game, it's unlikely that this will be on of Brees' best efforts. He's still an obvious start, but expectations should be tempered.

Drew Brees throws for 356 yards in Week 2

Drew Brees threw for 356 yards and two touchdowns on 27-for-45 passing in the Saints' Week 2 loss to the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact

Brees showed us again why there is no need to worry about his production in the Saints offense. With the Saints defense being as bad as advertised early in the season, Brees will have a field day trying to keep the Saints in games in 2017, solidifying his top-five place each week.
