Brees, as usual, was excellent from a real-life perspective against the Falcons, but lackluster from a fantasy perspective, with just one touchdown pass and an interception. With a heavy reliance on the running game, it's doubtful that Brees will magically need to air the ball out next weekend against the Bucs. The Saints' playoff seeding can still move around, and they need a win to secure a home game, so expect Brees to be motivated. Still, that should leave him as just a reliable but uninspiring fantasy option.

Drew Brees expects to return with Saints

Drew Brees told reporters after the team's playoff loss to the Vikings that he expects to re-sign with the Saints and return for the 2018 season.

Fantasy Impact

Brees talked about the team's window of opportunity, seemingly ending any thoughts that the 39-year-old would mull retirement this offseason. Brees was less effective as a fantasy quarterback as he saw less volume than previous years, but he will still be in the QB1 mix entering 2018.
