 Still playing for seeding.

 The Buccaneers are just 23rd against fantasy quarterbacks, Brees should be a QB1 with the Saints playing for the NFC South title.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 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.
