Saints Nation: You might want to consider Drew Brees 1st overall in fantasy drafts

If you play fantasy football, and chances are you do if you are visiting this website, you should know that the trendy move of going with running backs early is something of the past. Teams are starting to rely more on 2 or even 3 backs to carry the load instead of the traditional 1 guy getting the bulk of the carries. This is in an effort to keep their best runners fresh, so the safest bet when drafting early is to go with a guy you know will touch the football on every offensive play. Based on his stats these 3 years under the Sean Payton offense, how can you not consider Drew Brees very early in the selection process? Check out THIS ARTICLE which was released today. It discusses Brees' obvious top notch fantasy value.
