Drew Brees's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

You can expect Drew Brees to be a good bench player who will start in certain weeks the rest of the season. His 350 projected fantasy points puts him at #12 behind Baker Mayfield and ahead of Tom Brady. He has averaged 24.4 fantasy points in his past 15 games, which is more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 21.8 fantasy points. His rank based on average projected points is the same as his rank based on total fantasy points. He is overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 99%, he is the #4 most highly owned quarterback. Drew Brees is expected to come up short of last season's #7 fantasy position rank.

These projections power SportsLine's Computer Picks and Fantasy Data. But for contest winning DFS optimal lineups by top experts like Mike McClure visit SportsLine's new Daily Fantasy Hub.

DREW BREES WEEK 1 AND 2 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Drew Brees is projected for 23.7 fantasy points which is good enough to be the #3 ranked quarterback and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a slightly better than average week with more fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Patrick Mahomes but behind Lamar Jackson. Week 2 will not be as good based on projected rank (#16). He is projected for 20.3 fantasy points.

DREW BREES IS JUST THE #6 QB ON FANDUEL BUT IS THE #5 HIGHEST PRICED

Below are how he ranks on FanDuel. Look for players with comparable or more fantasy points at a lower or same salary.
