Although Brees has now been a top 10 fantasy quarterback in 15 straight seasons, he has dipped down to QB9 and QB8 over the last to years because of a major decrease in pass attempts. His efficiency has never been better which makes him a safe and reliable option, but unfortunately, his upside is outside the top 5 QBs at this stage.In the 11 weeks Wentz was healthy last season, he was the QB13 thanks to a greatly diminished TD-rate (as expected). With that said, he was even more efficient than his 2017 MVP campaign so there is more upside. The concern, of course, is that Wentz is still not healed from the back injury that kept him out at the end of the season so be sure to monitor that as your fantasy draft draws near.
