Drew Brees struggles. We break down the fantasy implications.
Drew Brees took another loss and wasn't his usual self with 325 yards, one TD and two picks.
Analysis: Yeah. So much for Sean Payton being out not having an impact on Brees' value. The Purdue product had just 31 of his 49 attempts go for completions. The Saints are getting the good protection for Brees and he was only sacked once in this game. Obviously, there's really nothing Brees' fantasy owners can do and he will be starting regardless of matchup. We'd say he's a buy-low guy, but it would take quite the hasty decision from an owner. He should be in all fantasy lineups next week against the Chiefs.
