Fantasy Analysis
Week 4 Projections
Since the inept New Orleans Saints defense can't stop anyone, look for Brees to sling the rock early and often to keep up with the San Diego Chargers on the scoreboard. The Saints triggerman isn't always at his best playing outdoors and on the road, but it'll be a surprise if Brees doesn't come through with a top-10 fantasy passer outing. The Chargers have yielded the seventh-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks.
Passsing: 347 Yards, 2 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 3 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Even though the 37-year-old Brees' deep ball continued its slow decline, he remained a fantasy force in 2015. The Saints' gunslinger overcame a slow start due to growing pains with a revamped receiver corps and one missed contest due to a right (throwing) shoulder injury, to top the NFL in passing yards and toss 30-plus scoring strikes for the eighth straight year to earn a fantasy QB6 ranking. It looks like Brees still has two more top-10 fantasy seasons left in his arm, and the 16th-year pro will end up in plenty of high-scoring affairs in 2016 because the New Orleans defense will be terrible again. Big-play wideout Brandin Cooks and the on-the-rise Willie Snead improved dramatically during the second half of 2015 and should continue to grow. Mark Ingram will continue to see plenty of action in the passing game. He racked up a career-high 50 receptions last year. Free-agent addition Coby Fleener will serve as a solid replacement at tight end, with sneaky upside, for the departed Ben Watson (Ravens). Everybody knows that Brees loves to throw to his tight ends. Impressive rookie second-round pick Michael Thomas is the favorite to out-duel the largely unimpressive Brandon Coleman for the slot job left behind by the departed Marques Colston. As mentioned, Brees dealt with a shoulder injury and played through a nasty foot injury (plantar fascia), so he comes with a tiny bit more injury risk than usual.

Passing: 4364 Yards, 30 TD, 9 INT.
Rushing: 41 Yards, 1 TD.
