New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees was 23-of-38 for 147 yards, a TD and a fumble Monday, Dec. 2 in a 34-7 loss to the host Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Yeah, it was a tough matchup facing the Seahawks' D and the 12th Man on Monday Night Football, but seeing these numbers next to Brees' name in the boxscore doesn't seem real. In fact, he failed to reach 200 passing yards for the first time since a Week 17 contest against the Bucs in 2010, and the performance came at exactly the wrong time for those Brees owners needing even a decent showing out of the QB to qualify for the fantasy postseason.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees recorded another 300-yard passing game in the Week 4 game Monday, Sept. 30, against the Miami Dolphins. It was his ninth straight 300-yard passing game, tying his own NFL record. He finished 30-of-39 for 413 yards and 4 TDs.
Huddle Up: There are few safer fantasy bets than starting Brees at home in a prime-time game, and even an improved Miami defense didn't come close to knocking him off his mark.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees said he would be open to restructuring his contract if it would help the team's salary cap situation. 'I am always willing to consider anything that will help the team or the cap situation,' Brees said. It is not known at this point, however, if the Saints have approached Bress to discuss his contract. Brees' 2013 cap figure is $17.4 million, highest on the team.
Huddle Up: QB restructures are mostly definitely en vogue around the league, and the cash-strapped Saints may very well follow the lead of the Pats (Tom Brady) and Steelers (Ben Roethlisberger) and take Brees up on his offer.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees will replace Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (knee) on the NFC Pro Bowl roster.
Huddle Up: Brees has been a fantasy Pro Bowler all along, leading all fantasy QBs with 437 points (Huddle Performance) with 10 300-yard-plus games and 11 or more contests with 3 or more TDs.
