Saints QB Drew Brees hasn't yet decided whether he'll return for another season in 2020. He's set to be a free agent in March but said that he won't play for a team other than New Orleans. "At this stage of my career, it's not a given that I'm coming back every year, but when that time comes, I'll always be a Saint," Brees said. The 41-year-old remained as efficient as ever this past season, completing 74.3% of his passes and averaging 7.9 yards per attempt. He ranked 3rd in Pro Football Focus' passing grades among 30 QBs with 300+ drop backs. If Brees does decide to hang up his cleats this offseason, the Saints would likely turn to QB Teddy Bridgewater.

The Saints and QB Drew Brees have agreed to a 2-year, $50 million deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The 41-year-old Brees is a year-to-year proposition at this point, but we know he's at least back for 2020. He remained as efficient as ever last season, completing 74.3% of his passes, averaging 7.9 yards per attempt and tossing 27 TDs vs. just 4 INTs. Brees missed 5 games and most of another with that thumb injury but scored as fantasy's #2 QB in the other 10 games.

Saints QB Drew Brees announced Tuesday that he'll return for the 2020 season. The 41-year-old remained as accurate as ever last year, completing a league-high 74.3% of his passes with 27 TDs vs. just 4 INTs. Brees missed 5 games and most of a 6th with a thumb injury but ranked 2nd among QBs in fantasy points per game in his 10 full outings. He remained much more productive at home than on the road -- but he'll be worth considering in lower-end QB1 range in 2020 fantasy drafts.

Saints QB Drew Brees (thumb) is officially active for today’s game against the Cardinals. There’s some added risk here in his 1st game since tearing a ligament in his throwing thumb, but Brees has plenty of upside vs. Arizona’s 29th-ranked QB defense.

ESPN's Dianna Russini reports that Saints QB Drew Brees (thumb) will start against the Cardinals today. He and the team clearly feel confident enough in that injured throwing thumb -- especially considering New Orleans is off next week. There's still a bit more risk here than usual, but Brees has plenty of upside vs. Arizona's 29th-ranked QB defense.

Saints QB Drew Brees (thumb) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. HC Sean Payton refused to name his starting QB on Friday, but Brees has said that he plans on playing. We’ll continue to monitor the situation. Whoever is under center for New Orleans — Brees or Teddy Bridgewater — will be in a nice spot at home for Arizona’s 29th-ranked QB defense.
