FFL: Culpepper, Brees

Major fantasy football-related news items continued to take center stage on Tuesday as the two most prominent quarterbacks on the open market changed uniforms. Two days after the signing of Edgerrin James created a major stir, Daunte Culpepper and Drew Brees landed with new teams. Culpepper's career could take a positive turn as he joins Miami, and Brees' decision to sign with New Orleans won't hurt his value if he is healthy.

Daunte the Dolphin

In a move that could improve his fantasy appeal, Culpepper was shipped to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for a second-round draft choice. If Culpepper can rebound from a major knee injury to open 2006 as the Dolphins' new starting QB, he might quickly put a forgettable 2005 season behind him. He can stabilize a position that has been a sore spot in South Florida since Dan Marino retired.
