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.
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.

The only thing undecided is whether Brees will play out the last year of his deal or if the Saints will look at an extension. Brees is due $20 million in salary and bonuses this year.
