Since 2008, Brees' touchdown rate had been 5.0 percent or higher, which was the reason he threw for at least 32 touchdowns in each of those seasons. In 2017, however, that number dipped to 4.3 percent. Was it Brees slipping? Well, when you look at his record-setting completion percentage (72.0 percent), highest yards per attempt since 2011 (8.1), and lowest interception rate in his entire career (1.5 percent), my answer would be an emphatic "no." The touchdowns will come back, as will the pass attempts, and Brees will likely be one of the steals in fantasy drafts.

Drew Brees re-signs with Saints

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the New Orleans Saints and QB Drew Brees have agreed to terms on a two-year $50 million deal including $27 million of guaranteed money.

Fantasy Impact

Although Brees garnered interest from the Vikings, he re-signed with the Saints, as we all expected. It looks like Brees, who just turned 39, will finish his career in New Orleans. His contract expires in 2020.
