New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees had a big night against the Chargers on primetime. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees was finally able to lead his team to a win on Sunday Night Football. The Saints toppled the Chargers in a shootout, where Brees threw for nearly 400 yards, including four touchdown tosses.

Fantasy Analysis: The Saints quarterback had a rocky start to the season, with the team struggling to close games -- he just didn't have his rhythm yet. On Sunday, Brees appeared to be the vintage 2011 version of himself, making tight-window throws, and piling on the yards and touchdowns from beginning to end. He is a must-start in fantasy leagues each week. When he's firing on all cylinders like he was in Week 5, there aren't many better fantasy quarterbacks.
