yeah he's poised with his schedule to have a shot at being top dog this yr. But don't count Manning out he has a pretty nice schedule as well.

for fantasy i have them like this

1-Manning- Just feel he's going to throw for 4000 and 35 tds
2-Brees- He could be the top dog
3-Rodgers- Over Brady but only because Brady got hurt last yr. Healthy Brady could be top dog
4-Brady
5-Rivers
6-Romo
7-Mcnabb
8-Warner
9-Cutler
10-Hasselbeck - I know a reach but Seattle has a great schedule of ****ty pass defenses.
11-Roth
12-Ryan

that would still put brady and manning above brees, whereas brees throws similar pick numbers, but hugely more yards and TDs, hes always placed behind them but the saints had a defense similar to ours in 07, pretty damn bad.

Matt Schaub is going to have a huge year. I think that Oline is in place to keep him healthy. I see 4000 plus yards and 28 TDs.

With Shockey and Colston back in the lien-up they could be pretty good. Especially if there D can step it up!

I want Royal as well, but I'm getting scared for his health. Dude might get 150+ screen passes his way this season.

Yes. We'll pass a lot, guaranteed. He could end up being a pretty good fantasy QB.

I disagree. Schuab always gets hurt, Andre always gets hurt, and if Andre goes down Shuab will suck.

No owner, coach or GM would pass up Brady or Manning to get Brees. That's the only case that needs to be made. He's a great QB but he's not Manning or Brady. Sorry.

i see the potential with Schaub accomplishing that, in fact i think the Texans could surprise the hell out of the NFL this year. i just am not high on Schaub, he is just a walking injury waiting to happen, if he could stay healthy he would no doubt have a killer year.

curious, waht makes those two better? decision making, arm strength, accuracy? brees isnt lacking anywhere except maybe height. brady and manning would get chosen based as much on reputation as anything, but as far as being an effective QB who can make all the throws and score tons of points per game, brees is at the top

Did one of my drafts today, got Brees first round and when it got time for a backup I took Orton over Favre and Shaun Hill.

Ill use Orton during Brees bye then drop his ass.

But Brees has always done me good, heres my draft in a 12 man league.

QB Brees, Plorton
WR Colston, Royal
RB Slaton, Addai
TE Shiancoe (fckin Greg Olen was taken 1 damn spot ahead of me )
RB/WR Moreno
K who cares
Defense Baltimore, New England
Bench Beanie Wells, Rashard Mendenhall, Michael Jenkins, Kevin Boss



Also, IMO the crappy defense is a major plus for Brees fantasy wise.

Last year in my league Brees had 378 points to Mannings 311 and Bradys 3.

In '07 it was Brady with 486, Manning (with Harrison and healthy Addai) with 344, and Brees with 311.

Id take Brees over Manning because 1. He has outscored him the last 2 years and 2. Anthony Gonzalez is not Marvin Harrison. And when Marvin wasnt Marvin last year Brees beat Manning by 67 points overall.

With Brady, who knows. If he is the Brady of '07, then By God. But Id take Brees over him simply because I know what Im getting with Brees. He has been pretty damn consistent since '04.

I took brees in my league with the 6th overall pick... I still got Chris Johnson, and frank Gore... There wasn't anyone on the board that I would take over Brees at that spot, and by the time it got back to me, Brady and Manning would have been gone...
