Drew Brees Fantasy Analysis

  • Brees needs surgery
    Saints QB Drew Brees will undergo surgery to repair a torn ligament in his throwing thumb, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The "initial estimate" has Brees missing 6 weeks. New Orleans has a Week 9 bye, so Week 10 might be Brees' most likely return date. We'll continue to keep an eye on the situation, but he's only worth stashing in 2-QB leagues or 1-QB leagues with an IR spot. If he returns in Week 10, he'll have 4 more home games left. QB Teddy Bridgewater will get the 1st crack at replacing Brees. He struggled in relief vs. the Rams and underwhelmed this preseason, posting a 61.4% completion rate and 5.7 yards per attempt. Consider Bridgewater just a low-end QB2 for now. But we do have some confidence that he's good enough -- alongside HC Sean Payton -- to at least keep RB Alvin Kamara and WR Michael Thomas afloat. If Bridgewater struggles, the Saints could give QB Taysom Hill a shot. Full Story

  • Brees expected to miss time
    Saints QB Drew Brees is dealing with a ligament injury to his throwing thumb and is "looking at missing some game time," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The team is expected to have a better idea of Brees' status after he visits a hand specialist in Los Angeles on Monday. Former Head Team Dr. David Chao believes Brees could return in 2-3 weeks -- but adds that he might need surgery, which would sideline him "into November." We'll continue to update this situation as we learn more. Full Story

  • Brees to see hand specialist
    Saints QB Drew Brees will visit a hand specialist in Los Angeles to examine his injured right thumb, he told ESPN's Josina Anderson. Brees added that "he is concerned and that it could be significant," per Anderson. Brees only briefly tried to throw after suffering the injury, and it looked like it was uncomfortable just to even hold the ball. Brees owners should be bracing for a multi-week absence. We should learn more tomorrow. Full Story
