Drew Brees Player Profile cut list podcast playoffs

If you are interested in only the best in your quarterbacks, then this fantasy football Drew Bress player profile should be just what you need. As we gear up to the start of the NFL season, Football Absurdity is going to bring you a comprehensive breakdown of every notable player that will be available in fantasy football drafts.  When you don’t see us talking about Christine Michael or Mike Davis, don’t get mad at us for neglecting your favorite sleeper.  Get mad at yourself for having bad taste in football players.

When looking at my player profiles, It is important to note that I think quarterback play is replaceable for low-end QB1’s.  So when I evaluate quarterback prospects, I am looking for top three potential  This will skew my perspective and analysis.  Because I am gambling on upside, I tend to draft two quarterbacks and the quarterbacks I draft tend to be younger.

Fantasy Football Drew Brees Overview: It would be easy to look at the fantasy numbers Drew Brees put up last year and think he is finally on the decline.  That is, it would be easy if you didn’t watch any football games last year.  If you did watch the New Orleans Saints play football, you watched Drew Brees put on a quarterback clinic.  Last year, I wrote about just how impressed I was by Drew Brees’ 2017 performance.  The fact is, his play did not regress.  His problem was that Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara were just insanely productive in that offense.

Fantasy Football Drew Brees Strategy: Drew Brees is one of the best values available this year.  He has historically been a top five fantasy quarterback, but he is currently the seventh ranked quarterback by ADP.  While I normally like targeting younger quarterbacks in later rounds, if he is available in the 6th round, he will end up on my roster.

Ceiling: If he just continues being Drew Brees, there is no reason he couldn’t be the number one fantasy quarterback by years end.  He’s got a talented surround cast an he will is assuredly a first-ballot hall-of-famer.

Floor:  What will actually happen is I will end up wrong and it’ll turn out that Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara were covering up all of Brees’ deficiencies that typically happen to old man quarterbacks not named Tom Brady.  Brees, along with your fantasy teams, only get worse.
