Sometimes you have to think outside the box to win your fantasy football league. It may seem a little crazy, but all the free agency issues with the New Orleans Saints have dropped Graham's draft value. Here are five reasons why you should not draft Jimmy Graham in your 2014 fantasy football league.
With the departure of Lance Moore and Darren Sproles, Graham will be the primary focus of any defense that the Saints would face. He is still tough to stop, but the touchdown total may be down for Graham in 2014.
Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham are normally drafted in the same round. If you don't want to give up a first-round pick, consider another tight end.
Graham has been lucky that he has been able to start in almost every game of the regular season during his career. He did suffer a partially torn plantar fascia in 2013, so he could be prone to more injuries in 2014.
It seems like the Saints are either trying to trade or release most of their offensive weapons, so Graham could end up being one of the few reliable options for Drew Brees. Kenny Stills will be in the mix, but the majority of the pressure for a winning season will be placed on Graham. This could end up taking a mental and physical toll on the star tight end.
Graham has let the world know that he is not pleased with Saints. From trying to trade Darren Sproles, to not paying him what he feels he is worth, Graham is not a happy camper. This attitude could carry over to his football production 2014.
