Drew Brees will be the Saints’ starting QB Sunday vs. the Kansas City Chiefs, source tells ESPN. Saints believe he is fully healthy and doctors have cleared him to play. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)
Nerdy Football Analysis: Shefter goes on to say that Jameis Winston will be the backup quarterback with Taysom Hill playing his typical swiss army knife role. This move does help the fantasy floors of Alvin Kamara, Michael Thomas and Jared Cook in what should be a high-scoring game against the Chiefs. Brees checks in as a solid QB2 with low-end QB1 upside.
