Jimmy Graham, TE, New Orleans Saints
School: Miami (Fla.)
FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS
In 2012 Jimmy Graham of the New Orleans Saints quieted any non-believers and critics that he may have had entering the year by following up his stellar sophomore campaign with another very productive season. How productive was he? In 2013 Graham, despite nagging injuries, one of which required wrist surgery just to clear up some lingering issues, just fell shy of 1,o00 yards and 10 touchdowns; 982 yards and 9 touchdowns to be exact. Those numbers put him at the top of the charts in fantasy football at the tight end position last year, pulling in 144 fantasy points.
Don’t worry too much about Graham’s health though as the guy is a monster, sitting at 6-7 and weighing in at 265. He will be able to take the hits and keep on ticking. What you do have to worry about though is how he progresses from the wrist surgery that he just underwent a few m...

Andrew, Kevin, and our fearless leader Dave are all together to discuss Mickey Loomis' magic to get the Saints under the salary cap. The downside as Dave explains is that the 2013 Saints defense will look a lot like the 2012 defense. Andrew makes the great point that the Saints moves so far this off season show they still believe in their defensive talent for next year. Kevin...
WHO SHOULD GO?
Hello Who Dat Nation, it has been almost a year since I have wrote for Saints Nation, but the time off gave me a chance to really think about the Saints future and what they need to do in this offseason. I don’t know if the Saints defense got a memo saying that NFL defenses are playing by Sarcastiball rules, but many changes need to happen to get this defense...
Darren Sproles, RB, New Orleans Saints
School: Kansas State
FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS
Am I the only one who completely forgets the fact that Sproles is about to turn 30 this year? Holy cow! Sproles still looks like he could out maneuver a bunny rabbit getting chased by a wolf. In fact I would like to challenge Mr. Darren...
In a season where the New Orleans Saints (7-9) were not much of a factor and, got more negative publicity than positive, quarterback Drew Brees had a pretty darn good year. Some might say he had a record-breaking season. Entering week 5 of the 2012 NFL season, the Saints were 0-4 on the season and
