Saints lock in Drew Brees for two more seasons

Drew Brees

The Saints have been a mess since winning the Super Bowl, partly due to the draconian punishment handed down by the NFL for Bountygate. As a result they’ve wasted many excellent seasons from Drew Brees.

With Brees getting older the window seems to have closed, particularly with the horrible mess they’ve called a defense in New Orleans. But now that they’ve run Rob Ryan out of town, perhaps they can get the defense back on track.

Meanwhile, Brees still puts up solid numbers, they’ve signed him to an extension, and the Saints have added a nice receiver in Michael Thomas. Can this team compete for the playoff spot? Hard to say, though I’m very interested to see how Thomas does this year from a fantasy point of view now that he’s been named a starter.

Teddy Bridgewater injures his knee

It looks like Teddy Bridgewater has suffered a serious knee injury, as he was taken to the hospital in an ambulance and is currently sedated and getting and MRI according to the Vikings. We don’t have any confirmation yet on the extent of the injury but all signs point to Teddy being lost for the season, which would be a huge blow to the playoff chances for the Vikings. There are probably many fantasy owners out there who will have to juggle their rosters as well . . .

It will be interesting to see who the Vikings target in terms of other quarterbacks. The Browns will want a lot for Josh McCown, but Mark Sanchez will likely be released by the Broncos and the Jets might be cutting Bryce Petty.

Will Romo injury affect Ezekiel Elliott’s fantasy football production?

Tony Romo is injured again, and Dallas fans have to feel sick. Some are hyping Dak Prescott as an interesting replacement, but I’m not buying that hype.

Meanwhile, Ezekiel Elliott looked amazing in the preseason game against Seattle, including a punishing play when he ran over Kam Chancellor. Elliott flashed all the skills he showed at Ohio State where he led the Buckeyes to a National Championship, and he naturally has fantasy football fans drooling.

But you have to wonder how much the Romo injury will affect his production. He has an amazing line in front of him, but defenses will be stacking the box and daring Prescott to beat them with his arm. This will be interesting to watch.

The RGIII mess in Washington

Things keep deteriorating for Robert Griffin III in Washington. He was hurt again against the Lions, and now the debate begins as everyone tries to assign blame.

Given the offensive play of the Washington offensive line, some are naturally making the argument that Jay Gruden should have sat RGIII earlier in the preseason game.
