FanDuel Fantasy Points Per Game More DFS

Drew Brees and the Saints come up short in loss to the Falcons on Thursday

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees threw for 271 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception in Thursday's 20-17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons.

What It Means:

Brees looked sharp most of the game, completing 26-of-35 pass attempts while throwing for multiple touchdowns for the first time since Week 11. However, he did commit a game costing blunder as his lone pick came on an ill-advised pass into the end zone with under two minutes remaining in the game. The Saints' were in the red zone and at worst case could have come away with a field goal try before the pick.

Brees finished with 18.04 FanDuel points after being projected for 22.7 by our models.
