Rank these 4 players...

Postby LWCrunner55 » Sat Jun 22, 2013 12:14 am

Jimmy Graham
Vincent Jackson
Randall Cobb
Victor Cruz

Which players would be ranked higher for you? I know Graham isn't a WR but I decided to stick him in here anyway since I'm considering taking him this season anyway. Enjoy :)
QB- M. Ryan, T. Pryor
RB- A. Morris, L. Bell, A. Ellington, C. Ivory, M. James, D. Martin
WR- J. Nelson, A. Brown, J. Boykin, D. Heyward-Bey,

I'd probably go:

Jackson
Cruz
Graham
Cobb

I might put Cruz at the top, depending on how comfortable you are with Freeman at QB.

Ranked in terms of numbers this year?

Jackson
Cruz
Cobb
Graham

But I could see Jackson underproducing this season if you are expecting last season's output. He made a lot of big plays with a crazy yards/catch of close to 20 and you know defences won't want to let that happen again. If that number drops to something closer to 15, he is looking at just over 1000 yards with his 75 or o catches. I can see Cobb catching a few more balls this season and topping 1000 yards and Cruz should see similar production (assuming he isn't holding out or something). Graham also doesn't have a tonne of room for improvement with close to 1000 yards and 9 TD's. I think he will continue to be the most consistent WR in Brees' arsenal but Colston and Moore will probably both finish ahead of him in yards with few more monster games.

All that being said, in a league with a mandatory TE, I still think you take Graham over the rest without question.

Yeah this is a league with a mandatory TE. I'm a little shocked there isn't more love for Graham.

Statistically he is only a mediocre WR2. If you ask for rankings based on numbers at the end of the season, this is what you get. However, as far as the TE's in the NFL these days, he's in a class by himself (unless Gronk gets healthy) much like Antonia Gates once was.

I disagree. I think he will be back to his 2011 form after being bothered by injury last season. His line of 99-1300-11 (almost identical to AJ Greens line last year) is a WR1 line, and with so little depth at TE and the abundance of depth at WR that would make Graham more valuable. I play in a PPR league and over the last two seasons he's gotten me 290 and 240pts.

I feel the same way. I feel he has a bounce back year to the tune of a 95/1,150/10 line. I believe those numbers would put him at a low end WR1- high end WR2.
