Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints continued to lead his team in the right direction on Sunday. In Week 7, Brees carried his team to a big win over their division rival, Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Brees began with a monster first half, and was able to close it out in the second. Brees finished with 377 passing yards, 4 touchdowns and one interception. His pinpoint passing once again showed why the Saints are a threat any given Sunday. Fantasy Analysis: Drew Brees is showing that his arm is winning games. He is firing the ball down the field, carrying most of the work load. With 300+ yards passing and 4 touchdowns in the first half, there is no doubt he is proving to be the best overall fantasy qb this season. He is basically a lock to put up 300-plus and multiple touchdowns each week. The interceptions have been bothersome for fantasy owners, but in Week 7, Brees only threw one.   Photo: (Getty Images/Jim Rogash)
