Week 17 KABOOM! goes to Drew Brees

With a playoff berth on the line, Drew Brees delivered for the New Orleans Saints. And your fantasy team, if you were still playing fantasy football. Brees torched the Tampa Bay defense for 381 passing yards, four passing touchdowns and a rushing touchdown to boot. All told, Brees finished the day with 38.04 fantasy points, easily enough for the Week 17 KABOOM! award.

Brees once again looked unstoppable in the comfy confines of the Superdome, picking apart the Buccaneers secondary like they were a JV squad. However, if you’re playing NFL.com’s Fantasy Playoff Challenge, which I highly recommend, be mindful that Brees will have to go on the road in the wild card round, where he and the Saints have been far less effective. They average almost half as many points on the road as they do at home.
