2014 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Jun-23-2014 by Kimra Schleicher

Drew Brees finished as a top two fantasy quarterback in five out of the last six seasons. He has never finished lower than third in fantasy points since he joined the Saints in 2006. He is an elite QB and unquestionably durable and consistent. Sure, he is 35 years old, but he has not missed a game due to injury since he joined the Saints. Brees has passed for more than 5,000 yards in four out of the last six seasons and averaged 42 touchdowns in the past three years. The Saints are not devoid of any playmakers at any positions. The key for New Orleans will be their offensive line. Brees was sacked 37 times last season, but the team is focused on improving their offensive line in the offseason. Many will draft Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers ahead of Drew Brees in 2014. If you are looking for potential value and one of the best bets as a fantasy player, don't look any further than Brees.

Editor's note: To Stud QB or Not Stud QB. That is the question. There's a good chance if you wait on QB, you'll sacrifice 100 points with the gamble. You'll miss on value at another position if you take Brees -- such as passing on WR Andre Johnson as your WR2 and instead grabbing a Cordarrelle Patterson. Smaller roster requirements (8 or 9 starting positions) should go with the better QB, while deeper starting lineup requirements (10-11) should take the skill position player and grab QB later.

4.10 Gridiron Experts - Drew Brees is out #1 quarterback, and for good reason. Nothing wrong with Rodgers, of course, but his number could drop off just a tad because of the Packers finally investing into their lagging backfield. Meanwhile, Brees comes off back to back 5000+ yards, 40+ passing touchdown seasons. With Sean Payton back in the fold, there's no reason to thing that the Saints offense won't continue to put up fantastic numbers... (insert John Lovett voice) "And I'm reaping all the benefits..."

5.12 KFFL - Tim - QBs fell in this format because of the expanded Flex format, and I'm not one usually to jump on the position this early. But this is where I typically start looking, and you can't get much better value than Brees here. I decided to start a run and have a consistent week-to-week stud. Even if they run more, I'm not concerned.
