Will Saints offense disappoint in 2012?
Or do they? As you might have noticed the past few months, there's a bit of a mess going on regarding the Saints, as the offseason talk has been about bounties, lawsuits and suspensions, and Brees himself is still working on his contract. All of this has led some fantasy owners to wonder if Brees and his teammates could suffer statistically once the games count. ESPN Fantasy staffers don't seem too concerned; Brees was the third quarterback chosen in a pair of summer mock drafts, as he was selected ninth and 11th overall. I've seen other drafts in which he was not the third quarterback, though, and the reasoning has been that outside distractions could affect him and the offense.
