Drew Brees QB NO 7 Months

Drew Brees was limited in Saints practice with a knee injury Wednesday.

Brees' injury was not mentioned by himself or coach Sean Payton during their Wednesday media interviews, which suggests it's of little or no concern for Week 17. Look for Brees to shred the Buccaneers in the regular season finale.

Drew Brees had his right (throwing) hand wrapped in ice following Sunday's loss at St. Louis.

Brees played the entire game without issue and said his hand is fine. We're only noting this because there might not be a more valuable body part in the entire league. Brees should be fine to practice come Wednesday ahead of a difficult and pivotal Week 16 game at Carolina.

Drew Brees completed 30-of-42 passes for 313 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 14 win over the Panthers.

Brees was highly effective in the short passing game, completing the majority of his passes by exploiting soft spots in the Panthers' zone defense. He connected with Marques Colston for a six-yard touchdown in the second quarter and later hit him on a post route over the middle from 15 yards out at the end of first half. Both of his other touchdowns went to Jimmy Graham inside the red-zone. Brees was coming off a game where he passed for just 147 yards against the Seahawks, so it was a strong bounce back performance. He'll remain a top-three QB1 in a Week 15 matchup with the Rams.

Drew Brees completed 23-of-38 passes for 147 yards and one touchdown in Monday night's Week 13, 34-7 blowout loss to the Seahawks.

Brees' 3.87 YPA was his worst single-game average since Week 17 of the 2003 season when he was a member of the Chargers. He failed to reach 200 yards through the air Monday night, ending a streak of 43 consecutive games he'd accomplished that feat. Brees was harassed all night by Seattle's pass rush and missed a number of throws. His receivers also didn't help him much by not attacking a couple balls and failing to hold onto a few others. Brees also lost a fumble that was returned for a touchdown by Michael Bennett in the first quarter. The Saints went three-and-out on their first three possessions. After 12 games, Brees is on pace to complete 67.7 percent of his passes for 5,058 yards, 38 touchdowns, and ten interceptions. He's a top-two fantasy quarterback most weeks. The 9-3 Saints host the 9-3 division-rival Panthers on Sunday Night Football next week.

The Week 14 Panthers at Saints game has been flexed into NBC's Sunday Night Football.

The matchup of NFC South Super Bowl contenders replaces Falcons at Packers. That game will now kick off at 1pm ET on FOX. It's a no-brainer for NBC, as the 8-3 Panthers are on a seven-game winning streak and the 9-2 Saints desperately need home-field advantage in the playoffs. This game could end up deciding the division title and a bye in the Wild Card round.

Drew Brees completed 22-of-33 passes for 278 yards and two touchdowns in New Orleans' 17-13, Week 12 win over the Falcons.

Thanks to a bizarre late-game play designed to help drain the clock, Brees finished with -6 yards on four rushes. It was a far from scintillating effort for fantasy's No. 2 quarterback, but efficient enough for a victory. Brees missed some easy throws, but stuck the ones that mattered, including a 44-yard bomb on play action to Jimmy Graham for a second-quarter touchdown. The yards were Brees' second fewest of the season, but the two-touchdown effort was his ninth in 11 games. Brees will face his toughest test of the year in Week 13, where the Saints will venture to Seattle for Monday Night Football.

Drew Brees completed 34-of-41 passes for 392 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 10 win over the Cowboys.

Brees took advantage of an injured Dallas defense and rarely missed on any of his throws, completing 19 straight passes during the first half. It was his seventh straight multi-touchdown game and the 392 yards were his second highest total of the season. Brees didn't have any turnovers after throwing two interceptions in last week's loss to the Jets. Even with an upcoming matchup against the 49ers, Brees will remain a top-five QB1 in Week 10.

Drew Brees completed 30-of-51 passes for 385 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's Week 9 loss to the Jets.

Marques Colston (knee) was inactive, Darren Sproles got concussed on the opening drive and Jimmy Graham (foot) didn't play every snap. No matter. Brees overcame bad drops from Nick Toon to go over 300 yards for the sixth time in eight games. Like a machine, he's on pace for 5,344 yards, 42 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. Brees is going to humiliate the Cowboys on Sunday Night Football from the Superdome in Week 10.

Drew Brees completed 17-of-36 passes for 236 yards with two touchdowns and one interceptions in Sunday's Week 6 loss at New England.

Brees was not sharp and appeared unsure of where to go with the football as Aqib Talib bottled up Jimmy Graham. This was the first time since Week 1 of the 2012 season that he completed less than 50 percent of his passes. Credit excellent game-planning from the Patriots defense and move on. Brees is averaging 326.3 passing yards per game and has thrown 14 touchdowns as the Saints head into the Week 7 bye.
