12. Drew Brees, Saints
With his high completion percentage and low interception rate, Brees is one of the safest fantasy picks at quarterback, especially if you want to wait until the middle rounds. But don’t expect the 40-year-old to be one of the top fantasy quarterbacks this year. He may not even reach the top-10.
It’s worth noting that this has almost nothing to do with Brees. The Saints are just better on defense than past years and are also capable of running the ball effectively. They don’t need Brees to carry them. He didn’t even reach 4,000 passing yards last year, a first since coming to New Orleans. He’ll be great for the Saints but average at best for your fantasy team.
Top Target: Michael Thomas
Secondary Target: Ted Ginn
