3. Drew Brees, QB-NO
Sean Payton realized something after the 2014 season, the days of putting all of your eggs in the Drew Brees basket may be over. Fantasy owners must realize the same thing this year or it will hurt them in the end.
The New Orleans Saints went out and signed running back CJ Spiller in the offseason and will pair him up with Mark Ingram to form a powerful running attack. In addition to focusing on the run, Payton also shipped off dynamic tight end Jimmy Graham.
This season appears to be the year the Saints are turning to a more balanced attack on offense which can only affect Brees’s numbers in a negative way.
If you draft Brees and expect numbers that he put up in the past, you will be bitterly disappointed. Let another owner try to capture lightening in a bottle and pass on Brees this season.
