Jimmy Graham

Although Jimmy Graham won’t be able to dunk after scoring touchdowns next season (without drawing a flag), he still should have no problem in scoring them. Last season (excluding the game against the Seahawks), Graham was one of the league’s best receivers, and the guaranteed best TE. This season I should expect nothing different from the former basketball star. Jimmy Graham isn’t a running back nor is he legally a wide receiver, but something else entirely; a fantasy beast. Since Graham burst onto the scene in 2011, he has averaged 1,169 yards, 12 touchdowns and 90 receptions. In 2013 Graham ranked ninth in the league in fantasy points scored (211 points). Six times Graham was able to catch for over 100 yards. While Graham most likely won’t get 16 touchdown catches like last season with rookie Brandin Cooks on the Saints’ squad, I believe that Graham will be able to get double-digit touchdown receptions no problem. He’s got one of the best QBs in the game with Drew Brees and besides Cooks and Colston, doesn’t have that much competition in the passing game.
