Dynasty/Keeper Outlook

Brees is entering his age 39 season, and the Saints just re-upped him for another two years. That would take through his age 40 season and it's fair to start wondering how much the future Hall of Famer has left in the tank. Additionally, New Orleans has clearly shifted its focus on offense, opting for a more run heavy attack. It was an adjustment that saw Brees fail to pass for at least 4800 yards for the first time since 2010, and attempt just 536 passes, his lowest total since 2009's 514 attempts in 15 games that season. His 23 touchdown passes were also his lowest total since he came to New Orleans in 2006. Still, Brees led the league in both completions (386) and completion percentage (his 72% was a career high), directing a highly efficient offense that found the end zone 23 times on the ground-5 more than any other team in the NFL. All of this suggests that not only is time running out for Brees from an age perspective, but Sean Payton and company seem to be adjusting the offense in the hopes of prolonging his career. And playing behind one of the best offensive lines in the league, there's no reason the Saints won't be contenders for the next few seasons. But for now we may have seen the last of the gawdy fantasy passing stats we've come expect of Brees.

2018 Season Outlook

Mark Ingram's early season suspension could mean more pass attempts for Brees, but it's also clear the Saints plan to run the ball plenty behind their talented offensive line. It's probably fair to assume the touchdowns come up a bit from last season, but given the way the Saints played last year it's hard to imagine we see another season where Brees threatens 5000 yards and tosses touchdowns passes in the mid to high thirties. He's still a solid NFL quarterback, but know what you're buying in 2018 with Brees, and that's probably not a complete bounceback to elite fantasy production.
