New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is officially listed as probable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. We break down the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is officially listed as probable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Brees suffered a minor ankle injury in last week's loss to the Carolina Panthers but practiced in full all week. He will play on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Drew Brees has a chance to be the No. 1 fantasy football quarterback this week against a soft Kansas City defense that has been shredded through the air in two consecutive games. Brees' wide receivers are a bit banged up, but the quarterback's injury isn't anything to worry about. Don't forget to put Brees into your lineup this week.
