Brees completed 29 of 41 passes for 385 yards with two touchdowns and an interception while adding a two-yard carry in Sunday's 34-31 win against the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

Brees was brilliant in this one, leading his team back from a 15-point deficit in the final three minutes of regulation by connecting on touchdown passes of three and 18 yards to Josh Hill and Alvin Kamara, respectively. The veteran quarterback's mere 15 touchdowns in 10 games are a reflection of New Orleans' extremely effective running game rather than any shortcomings on his own part. Brees is still capable of taking over games and putting up top-notch fantasy performances when he has to.

Brees completed 18 of 25 pass attempts for 184 yards Sunday against the Bills. He also ran for six yards and a touchdown on two carries.

EDGE Analysis

Brees simply played the roll of game manager in this one, taking a back seat to a rushing attack that churned out 298 yards on the ground. He got in on the action himself, scoring on a seven-yard scamper in the third quarter that afforded him some semblance of fantasy utility. The emergence of the running game has made Brees a bit more prone to lean weeks of late, but he remains a threat to post big numbers on a game-by-game basis and will continue as such next week agiainst the Redskins.

Brees completed 22 of 27 passes for 263 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 30-10 win over the Buccaneers. He also gained two yards on four rushes and fumbled once.

EDGE Analysis

Brees averaged 9.7 yards per attempt and connected with both Alvin Kamara and Ted Ginn, Jr. for his scores. The prolific signal caller posted his second consecutive game with a completion percentage north of 80.0 percent while throwing multiple touchdowns for the first time since Week 6. The slight adjustment in the team's offensive philosophy that's placed a greater emphasis on the run has served to cap Brees' overall production, but he's still generated a 13:4 TD:INT and is averaging an impressive 276.8 yards through the air over eight contests. He'll look to continue his strong season in a road matchup against the Bills in Week 10.

Brees completed 23 of 28 passes for 299 yards without a touchdown or turnover in Sunday's 20-12 win over the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

Brees found out the hard way how Chicago had been able to win its previous two games despite minimum contributions from its passing game, as the Bears' playmaking defense held him without a touchdown for the first time this season. The veteran quarterback still led his team to a pair of first-half rushing scores, setting the first one up with a 54-yard completion to Brandon Coleman. Brees also became the third quarterback in NFL history to complete 6,000 passes when he hit Michael Thomas for 23 yards in the fourth quarter, joining Brett Favre (6,300) and Peyton Manning (6,125).

Brees completed 27 of 38 passes for 331 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in Sunday's 26-17 win over the Packers. He also netted minus-1 yards on five rushes.

EDGE Analysis

The prolific passer's afternoon got off to an inauspicious start, as threw both of his picks in the first quarter. However, Brees rebounded to become only the fourth player in NFL history to throw at least 500 touchdown passes when he fired a 22-yard scoring dart to Brandon Coleman in the third quarter. With Willie Snead (hamstring) sidelined, Brees displayed great synergy with top targets Ted Ginn, Jr. (seven receptions, 141 yards) and Michael Thomas (seven receptions, 82 yards) while also finding rookie running back phenom Alvin Kamara five times through the air. The Saints have displayed excellent balance over the last two games in terms of run-pass ratio, a factor that can only work in Brees' favor over the long term. He'll look to put together his third 300-yard effort of the season when New Orleans tangles with the Bears in Week 8.

Brees completed 21 of 31 passes for 186 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in Sunday's 52-38 win over Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

You'd have to go back to Week 12 of the 2013 season for the last time Brees was held under 200 passing yards. The fact that the Saints defense generated two pick sixes and the team was in position for much of the second half to try to run out the clock can be seen as contributing factors. Brees himself threw an ugly pick-six late on Sunday and snapped his four-game interceptionless streak to start the season. Expect Brees to return to his more typical statistical output next week against a reeling Packers squad.

Brees completed 29 of 41 passes for 268 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 20-0 victory over the Dolphins in London.

EDGE Analysis

Brees and the rest of the offense put together a sluggish first half, but the prolific passer picked things up considerably following halftime. The 17-year veteran hooked up with Michael Thomas for a three-yard score on the first possession of the second half, capping off an 11 play, 77-yard drive. He then tallied the Saints' final points of the day with a 12-yard scoring throw to Alvin Kamara, which put a bow on another 11-play march. Brees has only one 300-yard effort thus far this season, but he's posted at least a 70 percent completion rate in three contests to go along with a sterling 8:0 TD:INT. He'll look to keep his excellent start going in Week 6 versus the Lions following a Week 5 bye.

Brees completed 22 of 29 passes for 220 yards and three touchdowns during Sunday's 34-13 win over the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Brees efficiently completed 76 percent of his passes while hooking up with nine different receivers. He connected with Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn and Brandon Coleman for scores, deferring to the run game after building a comfortable lead. Brees has been outstanding through three weeks in 2017, throwing six touchdowns compared to no interceptions while averaging 289 yards per game. He will look to keep it up next week against a Dolphins team that was just beaten handily by the Jets.

Brees completed 27 of 45 passes for 356 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 36-20 loss to New England. He also fumbled during the contest.

EDGE Analysis

As was the case in Week 1 against Minnesota, a late touchdown toss made the beat-down look a bit more palatable than it actually was, but make no mistake about New Orleans' early performance - it hasn't been good. Brees lost Brandin Cooks who, even when not utilized was capable of keeping defenses honest, in the offseason and he essentially replaced him with Ted Ginn Jr. Perhaps most troubling, New Orleans' defensive struggles have put the team's offense in a bind by taking away the run. This style of play is conducive to a ton of attempts for Brees, but will make it hard for the Saints to punch it into the end zone as defenses play conservative while preserving big leads.

Brees completed 27 of 37 passes for 291 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's loss to the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Brees did his best to lead an offense that averaged just 2.9 yards on 21 rushing attempts. In the end, though, New Orleans was forced to kick three field goals on drives that stalled inside the opposing six-yard line. While that left the Saints short on the scoreboard, Brees was able to convert in the red zone on the team's final drive, when he found tight end Coby Fleener for an eight-yard touchdown. Following a frustrating Week 1 showing, Brees and company are tasked with turning things around against the Patriots this Sunday.
