Drew Brees shows fantasy value in Week 7 win over Tampa Bay

Mike Ehrmann

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees led his team to a big win on Sunday. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees continued to lead his team in the right direction on Sunday. In Week 7, Brees carried his team to a big win over their division rival, Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Brees began with a monster first half, and was able to close it out in the second.

Brees finished with 377 passing yards, 4 touchdowns and one interception. His pinpoint passing once again showed why the Saints are a threat any given Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis: Drew Brees is a sure-fire fantasy option each and every week. As a player that demanded a first round selection in most fantasy leagues, Brees is showing he can help carry the load. The Saints continue to ride Brees' arm in order to win games.

He is basically a lock to put up 300-plus and multiple touchdowns each week. The interceptions have been bothersome for fantasy owners, but in Week 7, Brees only threw one. Fantasy owners should continue to start Brees on a weekly basis.
