Brees completed 28 of 36 passes for 310 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday's win against the Rams. He added another touchdown on a one-yard quarterback sneak.

EDGE Analysis

Brees feasted on what had been a solid Rams' secondary and his rushing touchdown was pure gravy for his fantasy owners. Per usual, Brees shined at home, completing passes to eight different pass catchers, although, surprisingly, none to top receiver Brandin Cooks. The Saints have a favorable matchup in Week 13 -- a home tilt against a malleable Lions' pass defense -- so Brees should again be an excellent option for fantasy owners.

Brees completed 35 of 44 passes for 285 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in Thursday's 23-20 loss to the Panthers. He didn't net any yards on two rushes and lost a fumble.

EDGE Analysis

Brees' final stat line certainly looks appealing, but the Panthers made him settle for much shorter throws than usual, holding him to this third-lowest YPA of the season (6.48). He did fire multiple touchdowns for the third straight week, and was able to post his highest single-game completion percentage (79.6) of the season while connecting with 10 different pass catchers. Brees will try to get the Saints back in the win column when they take on the Rams in Week 12.

Brees completed 21 of 29 passes for 303 yards, three touchdowns and two picks in Sunday's loss to Denver.

EDGE Analysis

If not for a bizarre blocked PAT in the game's closing moments, the story of Sunday's matchup would have been Brees' turnaround in the second half. After being confounded by Denver's tight coverage, tossing two early picks to safety Darian Stewart, Brees took advantage of some Denver miscues to throw three touchdowns in the second half - including a 32-yard strike up the seam to Brandin Cooks that looked to have been the game-winning score late. The dominant second half, in which the Saints mixed and matched its receivers against the Denver defense, showed just how dangerous the veteran is right now. He's thrown for over three touchdowns with 300 yards in four of the Saints' five games since its bye. His best performance, a four-score, 465 yard campaign in Week 6, was against his next opponent - the stumbling Carolina Panthers.

Brees completed 28 of 39 passes for 323 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 41-23 win at San Francisco.

EDGE Analysis

Brees had another efficient game, completing at least one pass to 10 different players. He continues to utilize rookie Michael Thomas, as they hooked up five times for 73 yards and two touchdowns. The veteran QB will have a tough test next week against the Broncos, although they will play in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Brees completed 27 of 35 passes for 265 yards and a touchdown, and scored a one-yard rushing touchdown in Sunday's 25-20 win over the Seahawks.

EDGE Analysis

Brees and the Saints were able to overcome a costly Mark Ingram fumble that was returned for a touchdown by playing a largely mistake-free game besides that. His two-yard touchdown pass to Brandin Cooks early in the fourth quarter put New Orleans ahead for good while the defense finally provided a passable effort. The veteran quarterback has looked as good as ever with an 18:5 touchdown to interception ratio through seven starts.

Brees completed 37 of 48 passes for 367 yards with three touchdowns and an interceptions in Sunday's 27-21 loss to the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Brees' interception was a costly one, as it was returned 49 yards for a touchdown by Daniel Sorensen. The veteran rebounded nicely, though, finishing with his fourth performance of over 300 yards and three touchdowns. He has a marvelous 17:5 touchdown-to-interception ratio to go with 2,101 yards in six games.

Brees completed 34 of 49 passes for 465 yards with four touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 41-38 victory over the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Brees' prolific afternoon propelled him to first place all-time over Peyton Manning with 15 performances of 400 yards or more in the regular season, and as it turned out, the Saints would need every one of his 465 yards to escape with victory. New Orleans was barely able to sustain what had been a 21-0 advantage at one point, but Brees helped insure the victory by finding a whopping 10 different receivers on the day, including Brandin Cooks and Coby Fleener for spectacular scores of 87 and 50 yards, respectively. The veteran gunslinger now has two 400-yard performances on the season and multiple touchdown passes in four of five games, including the last three. With no fewer than 36 pass attempts in any of his five games this season, Brees remains one of the surest bets for elevated yardage totals and multiple scores on a week-in-week-out basis. He'll look to help the Saints extend their two-game winning streak in Week 7 versus the Chiefs.

Brees completed 23 of 36 passes for 207 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's 35-34 win over the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

Brees struggled for much of the game, but when it counted, he led back-to-back touchdown drives in the fourth quarter to help his team come back from a 13-point deficit. He recorded his lowest yardage total since December of 2014, but Brees threw multiple touchdown passes for the third time in four games and still has a respectable 10:3 TD:INT ratio despite the pair of turnovers. Brees will enjoy a bye next week before the rival Panthers visit the Superdome in Week 6.

Brees completed 36 of 54 passes for 376 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in Monday night's loss to the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Brees was once again forced into a huge amount of passing attempts due to the Saints' abject defense, which left the quarterback playing from behind for most of Monday's defeat. Considering New Orleans' depleted defensive options, that could prove to be the case more often than not this season, but that harsh reality benefits Brees' already-accomplished fantasy stock wonderfully. The 37-year-old has now thrown for 1,062 yards, eight touchdowns and just one interception through three games, evidencing his success regardless of the in-game situations he faces.

Brees completed 29 of 44 passes for 263 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Brees completed 65 percent of his passes Sunday in what was supposed to be a favorable matchup, but he only managed one touchdown in what was a surprisingly low-scoring affair. He was on fire in the season opener, which came at home, and Sunday's underwhelming production on the road by his standards is in line with a trend that has developed in recent seasons. The Saints will host the Falcons in Week 3 in what could be a high-scoring affair, so Brees seemingly is poised for a bounce-back game.
