Fantasy Analysis
Week 12 Projections
The Houston Texans defense has allowed only 194.67 passing yards per game and just one touchdown pass during the last month. However, the Texans faced only Marcus Mariota, Andy Dalton (the 'Bad Andy' version) and Ryan Fitzpatrick during that time frame. Brees, who was playing well before his Week 11 bye, is a decent fantasy QB1 start.
Passsing: 260 Yards, 2 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 2 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Brees topped the NFL in passing yards (tie), attempts and completions to finish as a top-three fantasy signal-caller for the fifth time in the last six seasons. However, the 36-year-old pocket passer's arm strength, effectiveness and consistency all seem to be on the decline. To help compensate for Brees' diminishing skill set, the Saints are shifting to a Mark Ingram-led power-running attack but there will still be opportunity for Brees. Three of New Orleans' top receiving options from 2014 - Jimmy Graham, Kenny Stills and Pierre Thomas - were all shown the door. The loss of Graham is absolutely devastating. Brandin Cooks, Marques Colston, Josh Hill and C.J. Spiller will lead Brees' watered-down receiver corps. While Brees will still throw a lot because the work-in-progress New Orleans defense will blow plenty of leads, his days of consistent high-volume passing are gone for good.

Passing: 1870 Yards, 13 TD, 7 INT.
Rushing: 15 Yards, 1 TD.
