New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is off to a fantastic start to the first two games of the season, completing 65 of 80 passes for 682 yards, five touchdowns and zero interceptions. Brees will take on the Falcons in Atlanta this week and the future Hall of Famer is 16-9 in his career against Atlanta with a 95.7 QB rating. Brees will have another advantage playing indoors and in 121 career games playing in a dome has a 73-48 record with a 103 QB rating. The Saints lost their lone visit to Atlanta last season 20-17 but expect more points to be scored in this matchup. Brees, once again, is on the QB1 radar in fantasy for Week 3.
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees completed 28 of 35 passes for 243 yards and two touchdowns as the Saints came back late to beat the Browns 21-18. Brees led the Saints on three scoring drives in the fourth quarter, tossing two touchdowns to Michael Thomas and setting up the game-winning field goal. The Browns defense proved to be up to the task of stopping the future Hall of Famer early on but, in the end, Brees consistently fed Thomas the ball en route to victory. Brees continues to defy his age to post elite numbers.
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees should be able to score plenty of points at home against the Browns in Week 2. Cleveland flashed some of the potential that they invested in during the draft this season with cornerback Denzel Ward picking off two passes against the Steelers in Week 1. The Browns defense caused six turnovers in the game but the game was played in constant rain and this matchup will take place indoors in New Orleans. Brees is coming off of a 439-yard, three touchdown performance and the Saints are already in must-win mode at home. The Browns in 2017 allowed the fifth most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks and Brees is a future Hall of Famer. Brees is a surefire QB1 heading into Week 2.
