Drew Brees is always one of the best options to use when he is playing at home in the Superdome. However, whenever he is on the road he is worth a fade. Brees has played 117 games at home and 117 games on the road over the course of his career. He has thrown 75 more touchdowns at home than he has on the road and his quarterback rating is nearly 10 points worse on the road than it is at home. Also, the matchup is not great for Brees considering the Vikings were one of the best teams against the pass in 2016.
