New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees threw three touchdowns on Sunday. We discuss the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees had a fairly good game, despite his team going 0-3 to start the 2012 season. Against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, Brees went 20-of-36 for 240 yards, three touchdowns and one interceptions. While that's usually a good day for a quarterback, it's only an okay day for Drew Brees.

Fantasy Analysis: Drew Brees remains a fantasy must-start, and even more-so now that he is expected to make up for that ghastly defense. The Saints are going to keep going to the air, and with or without Sean Payton, Brees is an elite quarterback. Admittedly, he is not producing the way fantasy owners had hoped -- the interceptions are bothersome -- but he is still well worthy of starting in the majority of fantasy leagues.
