News: Brees completed 27-of-35 passes for 293 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Vikings. Impact: Brees connected with eight different receivers, throwing just over half (18) of his passes to Brandin Cooks and Jimmy Graham. His 77.1 percent completion percentage was his best this season, and he didn't turn the ball over for the first time (he did fumble, but the Saints recovered). Brees is still looking for his breakout performance this season, which could come in Week 4 against the Cowboys, who allowed 327 passing yards and three touchdowns to Austin Davis in Week 3.(RotoWire, )

News: Brees completed 27-of-40 passes for 237 yards with two touchdowns and one interception Sunday against the Browns. Impact: Brees connected with eight different receivers, although he didn't throw a single pass to wideout Marques Colston, and Jimmy Graham was the only player to catch more than three balls (Graham finished with 10 catches for 118 yards and two touchdowns). Brees' home-road splits are starting to get out-of-hand, but the good news for fantasy owners is that the Saints will be at home in Week 3 against the Vikings.(RotoWire, )

News: Brees moved into fourth place on the NFL's career yardage list Sunday, surpassing Hall of Famer John Elway, but the Saints fell to 0-2 with a 26-24 loss in Cleveland. Impact: Brees entered Sunday's game needing 62 yards to go past Elway, who finished with 51,475 yards. Brees overtook the Denver Broncos legend with a 6-yard pass to tight end Jimmy Graham with 1:56 left in the second quarter. He had two touchdowns to Graham in the defeat and went 27 of 40 for 237 yards, giving him 51,651 for his career.(STATS, 1:47pm)

News: Brees completed 29-of-42 passes for 333 yards and one touchdown Sunday against the Falcons. Impact: Brees connected with seven different receivers, including rookie wideout Brandin Cooks, who caught seven passes on eight targets for 77 yards and Brees' only touchdown. The Saints ended up with three rushing touchdowns, a ratio that's not likely to be maintained through the rest of the season. Up next is a Week 2 matchup against the Browns, who allowed 365 passing yards to Ben Roethlisberger on Sunday.(RotoWire, )
