New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who turned 40 years old last Tuesday, plans to return for his 19th season in 2019. "I plan on being here next year and making another run at it," Brees said. He has one year remaining on a two-year deal he signed last offseason and had a personal-best passer rating of 115.7 in 2018. Brees also broke Peyton Manning's NFL record for career passing yards during the season. He finished with 3,992 yards (74.4 completion percentage), 32 touchdowns and only five interceptions. Despite his age, Brees will remain a strong QB1 for fantasy owners heading into next season.
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees completed 26 of 40 passes for 249 yards, two touchdowns and one crucial overtime interception in the Saints 26-23 loss to the Rams in the NFC Championship Game. Brees was solid throughout but was hit on a pass attempt to allow the Rams to kick the game-winning field goal to seal the team's fate this season. Brees had an all-time season for a player who is on his way to the Hall of Fame but the Saints come up short in heartbreaking fashion for the second year in a row. Brees is defying his age and should still be a top-10 play in fantasy heading into next season.
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees completed 28 of 38 passes for 301 yards, two touchdowns and one interceptions in the Saints 20-14 playoff win over the Eagles. Brees overcame an interception on the first offensive play in the game to lead the Saints to being one win away from the Super Bowl. The key moment was an 18-play scoring drive in the third quarter that culminated in a 2-yard touchdown pass to receiver Michael Thomas to give the Saints the lead for good. Brees will be a top fantasy option once again next week as the Saints will host the Rams in the NFC Championship Game.
