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 15 Projections
It's strange to use the word 'struggling' when describing Brees, but he has thrown for only one touchdown and fewer than 205 yards in each of his last two starts, which were both road contests versus fired up opponents. Brees should rebound against a familiar and struggling Carolina Panthers defense that has surrendered the sixth-most passing yards during the last month. Carolina also has given up at least two touchdown strikes in 10 of 13 games played.
Passsing: 301 Yards, 2 TD, 0 INT.
Rushing: 1 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
By his lofty fantasy standards, perennial stud Brees was a surprise disappointment last season, but his finish as the 10th-rated fantasy passer - Brees' lowest ranking in a New Orleans Saints uniform - had nothing to do with injuries or diminished skills. A historically pass-heavy New Orleans offense shocked the fantasy universe by instead featuring a high-volume fifth-rated rushing attack. While Brees completed an NFL-record 72 percent of his throws, he attempted the second-lowest number of passes (just 33.5 per game), amassed the fewest passing yards and tossed the fewest touchdown passes (one or zero scoring strikes in eight games) since he first donned a New Orleans uniform in 2006. The promising Saints defense is healthy again and should continue to improve, which means fewer shootouts and game script that's usually favorable for a run-first approach. Since opposing defenses are probably better prepared for the Alvin Kamara/Mark Ingram duo, a modest uptick in attempts is likely for the 39-year-old Brees. His top-four targets from last season are all back - Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn, Kamara and Ingram. New Orleans took a flier on intriguing Cameron Meredith (ACL surgery) and replaced disappointing Coby Fleener with 37-year-old Ben Watson, hoping he and Brees can rekindle their 2015 magic. While Brees should be a more consistent No. 1 fantasy quarterback, his days of regular super high-volume passing are gone for good since the team is more committed to running the football than ever before.

Passing: 849 Yards, 8 TD, 2 INT.
Rushing: 4 Yards, 1 TD.
