On Sunday, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees had a bittersweet day, statistically speaking. The Saints passer went 24-for-52, for 339 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. Brees finished with an unusually low 70.9 quarterback rating in a loss to Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins.
Fantasy Analysis: While Brees did throw 300-plus yards and three touchdowns, you'd like to see him complete more of his pass attempts and limit the turnovers. If Brees is going to be slinging it as much as he's expected, he can't be careless with the football or it will cost fantasy owners points. The good news for fantasy owners it that he did drop back 50-plus times, which is another indication that Brees will have plenty of opportunities to make plays this year. There is no benching Drew Brees in fantasy -- he is a must-start each week.
