Drew Brees fantasy outlook: Start him.

The Rams defense has put up some big numbers recently. But they’ve yet to face a top tier offense, and they’re coming to the dome. I expect the Saints to put up some big numbers.

Yes, Aaron Donald does present a unique threat to Drew Brees. Brees really needs to be able to step up in the pocket to get air under his throws. But with Max Unger and this excellent offensive line, I think Donald will be held in check.

I also expect the Saints to attack primarily through the air. They’ve never been much of an attack-the-edge run game, and Donald will make life difficult up the middle. So Brees will get his opportunities. And he’ll make the most of them.
