Summary

Quarterback Rank: #3All Players: #40
Brees had a down season for his standards. He scored 34 touchdowns but was intercepted 17 times, which was high for him. Brees also finished the season with a dud, having just one touchdown three of the last four games and six interceptions during that stretch. Brees struggled much more than recent seasons, failing to click with his receivers and Jimmy Graham. He still had eight 300-yard games, though, and his overall numbers were that of a solid No. 1 fantasy quarterback. Brees just didn't produce near his numbers of the past few years, which is a bit of a concern. You have to wonder if a decline is coming or other teams have caught up to this explosive offense. Brees has seven straight seasons with 33 or more touchdowns. He also has 5,000 yards four of seven seasons. And at age 35, he still looks like he has good years left in the tank. He knows the offense inside and out but could use a little more talent at receiver to maintain his high level of play. Brees is extremely accurate, makes great decisions, and spreads the wealth to a host of options in the offense. The Saints try to have a balanced offense, but remain pass-first with Brees at the helm. He makes the offense tick for the Saints.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
Brees should be one of the first quarterbacks off your board come draft day - even after last season. He was fourth in quarterback scoring during a down year. He might not even return to his crazy level of production but should be able to at least duplicate last season in this offense. He is a good bet to throw for around 5,000 yards and score 35 touchdowns. He is a consistent factor from week to week, which is another huge plus. He gets his weekly chances to air it out in this offense.

Notes

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees spent two months working on his mechanics with his throwing coach this offseason, and he said the oblique injury he suffered last summer had an impact throughout the 2014 season.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees is entering his age-36 season and said playing until he is 45 years old might be 'overzealous.' Brees noted that '45 is a long way away.' He added, 'At different stages in your career, I just think you kind of reassess and reevaluate and try to set goals moving forward. It was just kind of one of those moments last year where my body felt great, felt like I had a great system in place with my training and my recovery and my diet and everything, gosh, why not?'

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees said he is unconcerned that the Saints drafted QB Garrett Grayson, his heir apparent, in the third round of this year's draft. 'I'm worried about winning a championship,' Brees said. 'Trying to be the best player I can be, trying to be the leader that I can be, that applies to how can I help get the best out of everyone who is on the team.'

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees isn't expected to be retiring anytime soon, according to general manager Mickey Loomis. 'I don't see the end for Drew Brees on the short-term horizon,' Loomis said. 'At least I certainly hope not. But it does take time for these quarterbacks to develop. And we're conscious of that.' Loomis could be hinting at the possibility of the Saints drafting a quarterback, perhaps as an heir apparent to Brees. The team has already worked out Baylor QB Bryce Petty.

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks (knee) spent time training together with QB Drew Brees during the offseason in San Diego. 'Man, I love everything about him, his makeup, and then just his physical ability. I mean he's got all kinds of talent,' Brees said.

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota isn't an option for the New Orleans Saints in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft, according to head coach Sean Payton. Payton said the Saints will not move up in the first round in order to select Mariota. Payton also said there wasn't 'one iota' of truth to rumors that New Orleans is looking to trade QB Drew Brees.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees will not be traded, according to general manager Mickey Loomis. Recent speculation said that Brees may be on the trade block after his favorite target, TE Jimmy Graham, was dealt to the Seattle Seahawks. 'Anybody who thinks we're trading Drew Brees, that's just not true,' Loomis told USA TODAY Sports. Brees threw for 33 touchdowns and 17 interceptions in 2014 while completing 69.2% of his passes for a league-high 4,952 yards.
Fantasy Impact: It would be a shock to see Brees traded but you can't totally rule it out at this point, especially with the Saints cutting salary.
