QB Drew Brees (New Orleans) Drew Brees was insane last season with 5476 yards, 46 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions. He won’t be that good again for 3 reasons. One, no one does that. Two, he lost one of his starting receivers, Robert Meachem. Three, he lost his Head Coach. He should see his YPA go down, as well as his TD:INT ratio, but the Saints have thrown the ball 1315 times in the last 2 years so Brees has a chance to get 5000 yards again. They didn’t make an outside hire for interim head coach so the offensive philosophy will remain the same. Projection: 4930 passing yards, 38 passing touchdowns, 17 interceptions, 40 rushing yards, 1 rushing touchdown (325 pts standard/401 pts in 6 pt TD leagues) RB Darren Sproles (New Orleans) I have Darren Sproles rated lower than most places. The reason behind this is that he gets so few carries, he needs to average a very high YPC and catch a ton of passes to be fantasy relevant. He did that last year, averaging 6.9 YPC and catching 86 passe...

Drew Brees Contract Negotiations: It's About Survival, Not Money

It seems crazy. On one side you have a player that has performed statistically off the charts throughout his last contract and is best in the league at this point.

The Saints’ Jermon Bushrod on Bounties, Brees & His Big Ole Heart

To say this has been a “difficult” offseason for the Saints would be as big an understatement as saying T.O.’s career is a “little bit” over. (I mean c’mon, a Dr. Phil “Baby Mama” episode, Terrell??) This offseason has been one dog fart after another. And if it has affected you as a fan, you’ve got to know it has been a total suck-fest for the players. So imagine...

Saints Nation: Pat Yasinskas of ESPN Ponders the Possibility of a Season without Drew Brees

If Drew Brees doesn't have a long term contract by mid July, then he has a choice to make - 1. sign the 1 year franchise tender or 2. sit out 2012. Drew Brees sitting out the entire 2012 season due to a contract dispuste is not something I've been really considering much. Even with the latest Pat Yasinskas of ESPN article bringing that possibility to our collective attention...

Nick Toon looks to follow in his fathers’ footsteps

New Orleans Saints rookie Nick Toon might not be the fastest receiver on the field but at 6’2, 215 lbs his features are just what the Saints look for. The former University of Wisconsin receiver has the NFL in his genes. His father, Al Toon, played for the New York Jets from 1985 to 1992. In

How Many Games Can New Orleans Saints Win Without Drew Brees in 2012?

The New Orleans Saints are getting into OTAs without their head coach. Once the regular season begins, they will get underway without their offensive coordinator and general manager as well, causing a less than favorable start to the upcoming NFL campaign. If they also begin the year without their top overall player, can the Saints possibly expect to contend in a challenging division...
