Jimmy Graham

Week 2 – WR – Start or Sit – Darrius Heyward-Bey or Lance Moore?

Posted by in NFL Week 2 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 14th, 2012 | Comment »

Question: I have a WR dillema for week 2.

I have 3 WR spots and a WR/TE flex spot this week. My WR’s are Wes Welker, Roddy White, Darrius Heyward-Bey and Lance Moore? Who would you sit?

Best answer:

I would go with Lance Moore. The Saints are playing the Panthers this week, who don’t have a very solid defense. Brees will be throwing a lot. Although Moore is Brees’ 4th option after Jimmy Graham, Colston, and Sproles, Brees still likes Moore who had 120 yards last week and 1 TD. Darrisu Heyward-Bey had a decent week 1, but I would go with Lance Moore who has a better matchup and a more impressive week 1.

Who To Draft: Jimmy Graham or Rob Gronkowski? (2012)

Posted by in Who To Draft on August 27th, 2012 | Comment »

Jimmy Graham vs. Rob GronkowskiWhich TE do I draft first? Jimmy Graham or Rob Gronkowski?

I expect Jimmy Graham and Rob Gronkowski to go in the beginning of round 2. I think these players do deserve to go where they’re getting drafting. A lot of people are saying these players are getting overdrafted. I disagree. After Calvin Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, and Julio Jones, I put both Rob Gronkowski and Jimmy Graham over any other wide receiver. Both will have over 1,200 receiving yards and at least 8 TDs.  In 2011, both Graham and Gronkowski had over 1,300 receiving yards and over 10 TDs. Gronkowski edged Graham out in both categories: 1,327 yards and 17 TDs compared to 1,310 yards and 11 TDs.

2011 Statistics

ROB GRONKOWSKI (16 games)
90 receptions, 1,327 yards, 17 TDs (124 targets)

JIMMY GRAHAM (16 games)
99 receptions, 1,310 yards, 11 TDs, (149 targets)

2012 Fantasy Rankings

NFL.com’s composite rankings has Ron Gronkowski ranked #13 and Jimmy Graham ranked #15 with Julio Jones in between. Yahoo has Jimmy Graham ranked #11 and Rob Gronkowski #13 with Larry Fitzgerald in between. Very interesting.

2012 Fantasy Outlook

The bottom line is you can’t miss with either of these guys with an early second round pick. You have to take them over the top WR and RB in the next class after the top 5 RBs, top 5 QBs, and top 3 WRs are off the board. If you’re sitting with the #14 or #15 pick in your fantasy draft, if Jimmy Graham or Rob Gronkowski are there, you take them. I have them ranked #10 and #11 after Darren McFadden and Chris Johnson followed by Larry Fitzgerald and Julio Jones.

You can even make the debate that one of these guys is …

Week 15: Should I start an injured Adrian Peterson?

Posted by in NFL Week 15 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on December 12th, 2011 | 2 Comments

Question: Should I start Adrian Peterson even though he is playing banged up?

Here is my current lineup:

QB: Eli Manning
RB: Marshawn Lynch
RB: Roy Helu
Flex: Shonn Greene
WR: Larry Fitzgerald
WR: Stevie Johnson
TE: Jimmy Graham
D: 49ers
K: Gostkowski

BENCH
Adrian Peterson
Antonio Gates
Jets D
James Jones
Laurent Robinson
Willis McGahee
Nate Washington

Should I put in Adrian Peterson? I feel like I should, but don’t know which player to take out. They are all projected to do well, and Peterson is only 85% according to ESPN. Your insight is appreciated.

Answer:

Definitely start Adrian Peterson instead of Roy Helu. He said he’s coming back this week for his “fantasy owners”. I expect AP to be AP. He should be his usual self this week even at 85% and it’s not like the Saints have a good run defense either.
