Stat Line of the Night — 9/22/2013 — Drew Brees
Fantasy football owners who were worried about Drew Brees‘ production through the first two weeks of the season couldn’t have been happier with what they got from the New Orleans Saints quarterback in week three.
After throwing for only three touchdowns in the first two games of the season, Brees lit up the Arizona Cardinals secondary on Sunday, completing 29 of his 46 pass attempts for 342 yards, three touchdown and one interception. And in addition to airing it out, Brees was also getting the job done on the ground, rushing for 21 yards and another touchdown during the Saints’ 31-7 victory.
After passing for over 5000 yards in two consecutive season, Brees now has 1,021 yards through the first three weeks of the 2013 season. That puts him on pace to record 5445 yards this season, and his latest effort earns him “The Stat Line of the Night” for Sunday, September 22, 2013.
