Can fantasy owners trust Drew Brees?


ANDY BEHRENS: Hey, guys. Andy Behrens with Yahoo Fantasy Sports here answering your social media questions. I have a good one here from Ryan. This is a pretty nice predicament that he finds himself in. Ryan says, “I have Brees and Winston. Both had impressive days. Who should I trust more moving forward?” The simple answer here is Drew Brees, right? He’s an all-time quarterback. He has multiple 5,000-yard seasons. He’s led the league in passing yardage in, like, four of the last five years. He’s as good as it gets. Drew Brees, especially at home in the Dome, is one of the absolute greatest quarterbacks of all time, and he is a sure bet in fantasy. You will want to keep Winston around, I think, for the occasional difficult matchup for Brees. He faces a tough defense, let’s say he’s on the road at Carolina. There are a couple of tough matchups on his schedule. When he’s on the road, he’s benchable. The other option you have here is to try to take advantage of somebody who has a weak quarterback situation and throw Jameis Winston on the block right now. Because this is about as good as he’s going to look for fantasy purposes. So you can’t really lose here. Either you keep him as somebody that you can play during a bye week or a difficult matchup for Brees, but I would encourage you to shop him. Put him on the trade block. Just see what sort of offers roll in.
