Week one of the 2013 NFL season is just about complete, and the first Sunday of this new year brought forth just about everything that an NFL could want. There were upsets, divisional match-ups, last second finishes, and some great outings by amazing players.
Peyton is still here. He’s still active. Boy, is he active. And last night was more than dropping a double-nickel, like Jordan did against the Knicks on his comeback trail.
With fantasy drafts now in full swing, would-be owners are scrambling to unlock the secrets of this year’s draft. To that end, let’s take a closer look at who might be the best QB option this year in fantasy: Aaron Rodgers or Drew Brees.
Every year around this time, I find myself getting asked the same question over and over again from people who know I enjoy football. “So, who do you like this season?”
Having an elite signal-caller who can win you the game in crunch time is essential for any NFL franchise.
The New Orleans Saints need their first victory in a big way, and they could possibly get it this Sunday night. A victory would be sweet, but breaking a fifty year old record would make that win even sweeter. Breaking that record and winning their first game of the season against the San Diego Chargers would be just the icing on the cake for Drew Brees.
Green Bay and New Orleans are in the midst of seasons that no-one expected from either team. This weekend, they face off in Lambeau Field and it is going to be anger versus desperation. Even with those emotions though, no-one feels sorry for them.
Drew Brees is one of the elite quarterbacks in the NFL and has been for a number of years. He has won countless awards, a Super Bowl championship, and broken numerous records. Still, he hasn’t taken home the biggest single-player award of them all.
Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints are heading into the 2012 season without a head coach. With a very talented team, the question isn’t “will they be successful?” but “what happens if they are successful?”
Big names dominate fantasy football drafts, but often don’t pay off. Check out these reaches and sleepers to get an edge.
