New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees looked sharp against the Houston Texans in Week 3. We discuss the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees was his old self against the Houston Texans in Week 3 of preseason. In the exhibition matchup, Brees went 17-for-25 for 179 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions. Brees is the key to the functionality of the offense, and with him at the helm, it should remain an efficient, high-powered unit. Expect Brees to rest when the Saints take on the Tennessee Titans in their final preseason game Thursday.

Analysis: Drew Brees is a first round pick in most fantasy leagues. Even though the Saints are going against the odds in 2012, they have a chance to be a very productive football team again because of Brees. The Saints QB was fantasy gold last year, breaking Dan Marino's single-season passing record and leading the league's highest scoring offense. Brees is at the nucleus of everything this Saints offense does, so his value is sky-high. With weapons like Darren Sproles, Jimmy Graham and Marques Colston, Brees has a lot of guys to help make him look good.
