Strength of Schedule

The easiest rating is 1 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the most difficult rating is 10 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
Fantasy Analysis
Week 13 Projections
There's no place like dome for Brees. In six games played at the Superdome this season, the Saints triggerman has thrown for an average of 357 yards and 3.2 touchdowns per contest. What looked like a solid Thanksgiving Day performance by the Detroit Lions defense against a dink-and-dunk Minnesota Vikings passing attack was clearly a mirage. The Lions have coughed up the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks on the season. You know what to do with Brees.
Passsing: 322 Yards, 3 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 2 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: 5200 Yards, 42 TD, 15 INT.
Rushing: 90 Yards, 0 TD.
