Player Info

Drew Brees goes Pass Crazy

Weather your name was Marques Colston, Lance Moore, Reggie Bush, Pierre Thomas, or Robert Meachem it did not matter to Mr. Brees. All he cared about was if you were open and he would get you the ball.

In 2008 Drew passed for 5,069 yards on the year. One of the greatest yardage totals in a season in NFL history.

His 34 touchdowns was also very good, for the Saints and fantasy owners as well. In fact in the three years, Drew Brees has been with the Saints he has improved his numbers every year. That's saying a lot, when you consider his in his first year he had 4,418 yards and 26 touchdowns!

Maybe what I like most about Drew is that he doesn't take sacks very often either. With totals of 18, 16 and 13 last year.

Drew Brees Fantasy Football Value in 2009

Drew has is back with all his band of marry men, so look for No. 9 to shine bright yet again. It seems not matter what problems this guy goes through, he always comes out smelling like a rose in the end.

From the Phillip Rivers controversy, to dislocating his throwing shoulder he has blazed through his challenges. This is the true mark of greatness and you would be best served to pay attention.

Drew Breeze will make for a fine second-round pick in your fantasy draft this season.

Again in his worst season with the Saints was 2007 when he had a slow start.
But by the end of that year he went on to post better numbers than his great 2006 totals.

With Tom Brady still needing to prove he is back from his knee injury and Peyton Manning going through so much turnover with the Colts.

Not to also add Kurt Warner is coming off of hype surgery, Drew Brees is the hands down No. 1 quarterback in the league this year.
