New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees put on a clinic on Monday Night Football in the Week 4 win over the Miami Dolphins. Brees threw for 413 yards and four touchdowns on 30-for-39 passing to finish with a quarterback rating of 144.5. Brees also eclipsed Fran Tarkenton in all-time passing yardage list and now ranks No. 6 overall. The future Hall of Famer has 47,353 career passing yards and 334 career touchdowns. Brees enters Week 5 with 1,434 passing yards and 10 touchdowns. He is on pace to throw for 5,736 yards and 40 touchdowns.
Fantasy impact: Brees is having a spectacular season and is now 6th on the all-time passing yards list, passing former NFL quarterback Fran Tarkenton in the first half of the Monday night win over the Miami Dolphins. Brees is on pace to throw for 5,736 yards and 40 touchdowns on the year. Fantasy owners who likely drafted him in the top three rounds are being rewarded with their confidence as the 13-year veteran shows no signs of slowing down. The Saints will face the Chicago Bears in Week 5.
