Drew Brees Passing Yards Under 4199.5 -115
The Saints could very well be a team that finds themselves in the Super Bowl this season but, as I talked about earlier this summer in our team previews, I’m not as high on them as most and don’t think they’ll be the beneficiary of a weak/injured division again this season.
• Despite facing the 5th easiest passing defense schedule, managed “only” 3992 yards in 15 games, his lowest in a Saints uniform.
• According to Football Outsiders, Brees didn’t take any “non-pressure sacks” last season. He led the NFL with 8.1 yards per attempt and had the 2nd best passer rating in the league.
• I am buying into the Warren Sharp theory that the big hit he took on Thanksgiving has affected his deep passing:• Finally, having a very solid backup in Teddy Bridgewater makes it a much easier decision to sit him for a game or two if he does have any sort of injury throughout the season.
