Engel: Dissecting the trends

Once again this week, we go inside the numbers at the three major offensive positions to reveal some important trends regarding selected key players, while providing analysis on the statistics provided.


Drew Brees: He has scored at least 20 ESPN.com fantasy points in each of his past six games. During that span, he has thrown less than two TD passes in just one game. Brees is clearly a must-start player for the rest of the season, especially with the 49ers, Cowboys, Redskins and Giants ahead on his schedule.
