Call me crazy, but I haven't given up on Brees yet. He's completed 72 percent of his passes, the highest mark of his career. He's throwing for 8.0 yards per attempt, the third-highest mark of his career. Is he throwing the ball less? Sure, but his touchdown rate is what's lacking and that's due to the ground game's success. They've now scored 10 rushing touchdowns in the last five games, while throwing just five touchdowns in that span. I'm not saying the ground game is going to fall off, but it's going to regress, whereas Brees is going to pick up that slack. The Redskins have now allowed three top-six performances in their last four games, and the only game they didn't was when Dak Prescott didn't need to throw the ball because Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 150 yards and two touchdowns. Not to say Brees' run game can't do that, but I'm betting on Brees at home to get back into the top-tier of QB1's this week. You were warned about Benjamin with Taylor, right? If you own Benjamin, you should be celebrating Peterman's promotion, as he is someone who appears to be willing to throw it into tight coverage. Two of Benjamin's three catches in Week 10 came in garbage time with Peterman under center. He'll see Jason Verrett in coverage this week, another tough challenge for a wide receiver who doesn't gain much separation and relies on the jump ball. On the season, Hayward has allowed just a 51 percent catch rate, though he has gotten beat deep at times while allowing 15.8 yards per reception, though Benjamin can't beat anyone over the top with his speed. He's just a touchdown-dependent WR3 in this game.

 If you look at his pedestrian statline from last week, you might be concerned about starting Benjamin, but he did lead the Bills in targets. This week, he draws Casey Heyward, however, which puts him in flex play consideration, but not a must-start.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Brees hasn't been needed to do much, as the Saints' running game has been dominant, but that won't be the case every week and Washington has been getting scorched by quarterbacks of late, allowing two four-touchdowns games in its last four. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
New Orleans is running the ball more in recent weeks, but Brees still has QB1 value at home.  
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Brees is having an odd year, in that he's playing excellent football, with a significantly higher completion percentage and quarterback rating than his career marks, but is on pace for just 23 touchdown passes. The fact is that the Saints' improved defense and exceptional running game simply don't require him to throw much. The Redskins should be able to put up some points this weekend, and as Case Keenum showed, are eminently beatable through the air. That should make Brees a strong QB1 option this week, despite the lack of touchdowns.
