Outlook: Drew Brees has been one of the most consistent players in the fantasy realm for over a decade, yet there will be ample opportunity to buy him at a reasonable price heading into the 2016 season. On the surface, it is easy to write off the New Orleans veteran quarterback due to his advancing age (37) and three-year decline in total passing touchdowns and yardage. He also failed to finish amongst the top three fantasy QBs for the first time since 2005. Although it is hard to imagine Brees rebounding to elite status at this point in his career his “regression” may be getting overblown. This is not a case where a good quarterback has entered decline, but one where an elite option has seen his numbers fall back towards the pack. He finished 2015 as a top three fantasy quarterback on a points per game basis by throwing for more yards than anyone else while playing one fewer game than his peers. The quarterback position is tougher to navigate in today’s pass-happy NFL. Not only are the gaps between tiers closer, but the number of options within each tier have grown in the past year as well. Fantasy owners who choose to wait and watch the more popular flashy names come off the board will likely find themselves scooping up a boring old top six fantasy option.

Luke McCown is currently slated to open the season holding the clip board for New Orleans. He could become a plug and play option if forced to fill in on a short-term basis. However, the team has been very pleased with the progress of 2015 third rounder Garrett Grayson this off season. Grayson is raw and untested at the NFL level but will be given every opportunity to overtake McCown as the primary backup. He is on track to take over for Brees as the team’s quarterback of the future and carries speculative value in dynasty formats.

Outlook: Playing in his fewest games since 2010, a litany of injuries threw a wrench into what could have been a truly remarkable fantasy season for Big Ben. Oddly enough, despite finishing 21st overall in quarterback scoring, Roethlisberger scored the same exact points per game (23.6) last year as he did during his top-5 season in 2014. Injuries and subsequent missed games have been a hallmark of Ben’s career. During his impressive 12-year career he has only played a full 16 games just three times. Luckily for fantasy owners, Roethlisberger is also one of the toughest guys in the league, able to shrug off injuries and play at an elite level even in pain and discomfort. His game, and stature in the pocket make him a candidate for big hits, and his size and bravery in the pocket often lead to lower leg injuries. In an effort to be more agile, Ben has worked hard this offseason to shed weight and be lighter on his feet.

What helps maintain Roethlisberger’s elite fantasy value is the draw dropping arsenal of skill players at his disposal. A healthy Le’Veon Bell, and an always motivated Antonio Brown give Big Ben a duo of all-pros to funnel the offense through. The year-long suspension of supremely talented Martavis Bryant will certainly be a blow, but Roethlisberger had over 700 yards passing and 4 touchdowns in two games without him early in the year and the addition of Ladarius Green, and development of Sammie Coates should certainly help offset the loss. With an aggressive play caller in Todd Haley, and a goal of 30 ppg for the offense, Roethlisberger should again be in line for a top-10 fantasy season as long as he remains upright for 15-plus games.

Outlook: Eli Manning is coming off one of the best statistical seasons of his career, having thrived in offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo’s system the last two seasons. Manning’s success was a huge factor in McAdoo being named the team’s head coach after Tom Coughlin “resigned” from the position. McAdoo was hired by Coughlin after a successful stint as the Packers quarterback coach and runs an up-tempo gameplan – the Giants played at the second fastest pace in the league in 2015. His Packer version of the west coast based offense using short screens and slants, helped increase Manning’s efficiency across the board. The system also helped the offensive line, decreasing the time required to hold their blocks. Manning finished with over 4,400 passing yards for the second consecutive season and he threw for a career high 35 touchdown passes with only 14 interceptions in 2015. He has never been a great fantasy asset, but his steady production and ability to put together 16-game seasons on a yearly basis has always made him a safe bet to finish as a borderline fantasy QB1. Under McAdoo and with the emergence of wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., Manning’s ceiling has been raised and upside remains even at age 35. The team’s o-line issues have been addressed through free agency and the draft during the last two seasons which can only further help the younger Manning. The Giants added another quick and explosive wide receiver, rookie Sterling Shepard, into the mix which is another factor in favor of Manning continuing his recent success. The veteran makes a nice target for those that like to wait and use a QBBC approach in redraft leagues.
