Saints | Drew Brees hopes for quick resolution to Jimmy Graham's situation

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 09:18:44 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees said he wants the team to have a quick resolution to TE Jimmy Graham's contract situation so that the two have valuable time together on the field before the season starts. "Jimmy's my guy," Brees said in a sit-down interview late last month. "I want what's best for him. I want what's best for the team. Certainly there's a way that everybody can be happy coming out of this deal. But it is part of the process, and I went through something similar to this two years ago, so I get it." The Saints have eight days to work out a long-term deal with Graham, and sources expect negotiations to extend up until the deadline on July 15.

Saints | Marques Colston says foot feeling better

Fri, 04 Jul 2014 09:17:57 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (foot) said he is feeling healthy this season. "I feel really good," Colston said. "The foot I know was addressed earlier in the offseason. It's really not an issue. I've been able to get out here with really no restrictions and just run around and feel good."

Fantasy Tip: Colston was hampered by a sore foot last year, but when healthy, he has been a reliable fantasy option. That being said, he isn't getting any younger and with Drew Brees' tendency to spread the wealth, he is probably best suited to be a WR3.

Saints | Will start negotiations with Jimmy Graham

Wed, 02 Jul 2014 19:31:57 -0700

The New Orleans Saints will now begin contract negotiations with the agent franchise free-agent TE Jimmy Graham, because the two sides were waiting on the ruling on Graham's grievance before starting contract talks. There appears to be a chance that Graham will not be interested in his franchise tender if the two sides are not able to reach an agreement before the July 15 deadline and could hold out during training camp and possibly the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should watch this situation, because there is a chance Graham holds out if he does not get a contract he likes. Graham is one of the top fantasy tight ends at this point, but his value could go down if he holds out during the regular season.

Saints | Coach says Jimmy Graham covered like TE

Wed, 02 Jul 2014 12:52:33 -0700

New Orleans head coach Saints Sean Payton said during TE Jimmy Graham's grievance hearing that Graham is covered like a tight end no matter what he lines up on offense. Payton indicated that linebackers cover Graham at times and that linebackers do not cover wide receivers.

Fantasy Tip: Graham should be considered one of the top fantasy tight end this offseason if he and the team are able to figure out his contract situation.

Saints | Jimmy Graham ruled a TE

Wed, 02 Jul 2014 09:09:47 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham's grievance hearing has been decided, and he has been officially ruled a tight end.

Fantasy Tip: How this might affect how the Saints use Graham on the field moving forward has yet to be seen, but it at least gives more clarity to Graham's contract situation moving forward. It'll surely affect the bargaining stances of tight ends similar to Graham, too.
