Drew Brees looks like a fantasy stud again

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Spor

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has thrown three touchdowns passes in the first half. We break down the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees threw for 216 yards and three touchdowns in the first half as the Saints lead the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 24-0. Brees has completed 19-of-29 passes to seven different receivers.

Brees found David Thomas in the end zone on a nine-yard pass in the first quarter. In the second quarter he added a two-yard TD to Darren Sproles and a seven-yard strike to Lance Moore for his third touchdown of the half.

Fantasy Impact: Brees struggled in the last two weeks, throwing only a total of only one touchdown pass with seven interceptions. He seems to have found his mojo again against the Bucs as he is on pace for his best fantasy game of the season.

With 24-0 lead the Saints may turn to the run a bit more in the second half, but it is New Orleans, so they may keep airing it out.
