Drew Brees is one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history and there's a misconception that he's not good on the road. The reality is the Saints are 4-0 on the road this year and Brees has thrown for 945 yards and 6 touchdowns. So it's not that he's bad on the road, it's just how good he is at home at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

His fantasy stats and completion percentage are impressive whether he is at home or on the road, but a three-year sample size is a lot of data to work off. In Brees' three home games so far in 2018, he's averaging 348.3 yards per game and completing 84 percent of his passes. So somehow he's even better this year than he's been over the last few years, on average.


Brees will have his toughest home matchup in a long while on Sunday when the Saints take on the 8-0 ​now-favored Los Angeles Rams, but he was able to put some points up against the Baltimore Ravens' No. 1-ranked defense on the road. Brees continues to prove just how good he is, especially when playing in front of his ​home crowd at the Superdome.

No matter where he plays, Brees remains one of the best quarterbacks ever, both on the field and in fantasy.
