Brees completed 22 of 25 passes for 265 yards and three touchdowns and added three yards and a touchdown on two carries during Sunday's 51-14 win over Cincinnati.

EDGE Analysis

After picking the Bengals apart for much of the afternoon, Brees got in on the action himself in the final minutes of the third quarter, leaping over the pile for a one-yard touchdown run. It was his third of the season, already tying a career high for rushing touchdowns in a season. In the passing game, there was concern as to how New Orleans' offense could keep pace without much depth at receiver, free-agent acquisition Dez Bryant's (Achilles) season ending about as quickly as it started. The Saints and Brees look like they'll continue marching along just fine with a bonafide WR1 in Michael Thomas and the talented pass-catching duo of Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram in the backfield. The two combined for seven catches for 104 yards and a touchdown on Sunday. Brees takes on a struggling Philly pass defense next Sunday with an other-worldly 21:1 touchdown:interception ratio on the season and multiple touchdowns and no interceptions in seven of nine games.

Brees completed 25 of 36 pass attempts for 346 yards and four touchdowns during Sunday's 45-35 win over the Rams. He also carried four times for 16 yards.

EDGE Analysis

Brees completed 69 percent of his passes and connected with seven different receivers while averaging a healthy 9.6 yards per attempt. He threw short TD passes to Alvin Kamara, Tre-Quan Smith and Benjamin Watson in the first half before delivering a 72-yard score to Michael Thomas late in the game. Though Brees threw his first interception of the season last week, this outburst gives him an 18:1 TD:INT through eight games. He's also on pace for nearly 4,500 yards yet again and will look to continue his outstanding campaign next Sunday against the Bengals.

Brees connected on 22 of his 30 pass attempts for 212 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 24-23 win over Baltimore. He added three yards on four carries.

EDGE Analysis

Brees was stymied for much of Sunday afternoon, but threaded a five-yard slant pass to Michael Thomas for a game-winning touchdown with five minutes remaining in the game, part of a 17-point fourth quarter for New Orleans. The fact that Sunday can be viewed as a so-so game for Brees is a testament to his continued dominance. The veteran passer has completed at least 70 percent of his passes in five of six games this season and boasts an absurd 13:0 touchdown:interception ratio. He continues to be among the most reliable passers in fantasy, particularly with matchup next Sunday against a Minnesota defense ranked 27th in the league in opponent passer rating at 103.1. Minnesota might be lucky to hold Brees to its season average, as a 103.1 rating would be Brees' second worst game of the season.

Brees completed 26 of 29 passes for 363 yards and three touchdowns in Monday night's 43-19 win over the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

Brees' performance saw him become the NFL's career leader in passing yards. In spectacular fashion, Brees broke the record on a 62-yard touchdown to rookie Tre'Quan Smith, who would finish the night with two scores. After not throwing a touchdown in Week 4, Brees rebounded in a big way Monday, sending the Saints into their bye week on a high note.

Brees completed 18 of 32 passes for 217 yards without a touchdown or turnover in Sunday's 33-18 road win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Brees was nowhere hear his best, failing to throw a touchdown while squandering numerous red zone opportunities. Still, he methodically led the offense down the field and controlled the clock, helping set up a three-touchdown day for running back Alvin Kamara. Brees has displayed consistently better results at home in the last few seasons, so he should be able to get his mojo back in Week 5 with the Saints returning to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome to host the Redskins.

Brees completed 39 of 49 passes for 396 yards and three touchdowns while adding three rushes for seven yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 43-37 overtime win over Atlanta.

EDGE Analysis

Brees came in just 13 completions short of Brett Favre's NFL-record 63,000, and he passed Favre in the second quarter on just his 18th throw. He completed all four of his passes on the opening drive, including a 35-yarder to Michael Thomas on the first play and a four-yard touchdown to Ted Ginn. Brees got his team back into the end zone again with an 11-yard pass to Cameron Meredith and a one-yard strike to Zach Line. He took over with his legs late, rushing for a seven-yard score to tie the game with 1:15 remaining, then breaking that tie with a one-yard plunge in overtime.

Brees completed 28 of 35 passes for 243 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Saints' 21-18 win over the Browns on Sunday. He also lost a yard on his sole rush.

EDGE Analysis

Brees helped the Saints pull out a crucial early-season win by directing a trio of fourth-quarter scoring marches. After being stymied by a surprisingly stingy Browns defense through three quarters. the future Hall of Famer led a nine-play, 66-yard drive early in the fourth quarter that culminated in a two-yard touchdown toss to Michael Thomas. He then finished a brief four-play, 18-yard series with a five-yard scoring dart to Thomas, and spearheaded a six-play, 49-yard drive capped off by a Will Lutz 44-yard field goal go-ahead field goal. Brees now has a 5:0 TD:INT through two games, and he's shown an even better connection with Thomas that could have been expected. He'll look to continue New Orleans' winning ways versus the Falcons in Week 3.

Brees completed 37 of 45 passes for 439 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Saints' 48-40 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday. He also threw a two-point conversion pass.

EDGE Analysis

Although Brees played a mistake-free game and was only sacked once, his defense shockingly couldn't keep up with the record-setting exploits of the Buccaneers' Ryan Fitzpatrick. Brees displayed his usual rapport with top receiver Michael Thomas, finding his third-year wideout on 16 occasions for 180 yards and a touchdown. He also had scoring connections with Alvin Kamara and Ted Ginn, Jr., but after getting the Saints to within 48-40 following a two-point conversion pass to Ginn, the New Orleans defense was unable to get the ball back for him. The future Hall of Famer will look to put the surprising season-opening upset behind him when he and the Saints face the Browns in Week 2.

Brees completed seven of nine passes for 59 yards and one interception during Saturday's preseason game against the Chargers. He also completed a two-point conversion attempt.

EDGE Analysis

Making his preseason debut, Brees wasn't asked to do much and was ultimately subbed from the game before the second quarter ended. While it obviously would've been nice to see a more productive stat line from him, there's no reason to worry about the veteran signal caller who's coming off a 2017 season in which he set the all-time record for completion percentage (72 percent). As we saw last year, the only real concern with him remains the Saints' apparent shift to a rushing-oriented offensive attack.

Brees did not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Brees did not play in the Saints' first preseason game either, but there's no reason for concern here. Brees has been a full participant in practice, and there's simply no need for the veteran to risk injury in a meaningless exhibition. As a result of a reinvigorated running game, last year the future Hall of Fame quarterback attempted his fewest passes in a full season since 2005. Brees nevertheless remains locked in as one of the best signal-caller options in fantasy, even as he enters his 18th NFL season.
