The Saints triggerman is 34 years old, but Brees is still at the top of his game. Even though New Orleans endured a down 2012 season, he still managed to lead the NFL in passing yards and touchdown passes for the second consecutive season. Relying on his lively, accurate arm and a deep supporting cast led by Jimmy Graham, Darren Sproles and Marques Colston, Brees will rack up huge passing stats in New Orleans’ high-octane offense as usual. Can Brees pass for 5,000-plus yards for the third season? Only an injury will stop the very reliable Brees from finishing as a top five fantasy passer for the eighth year in a row.
