News: Graham made 19 of 22 field-goal attempts for the Saints in 2014.
Impact: Though he was shaky in training camp and to start the year, Graham actually had a pretty good season, with his 86 percent conversion rate right in line with his career percentages. The problem, however, was the coaching staff simply didn't trust Graham's aging legs to make the longer kicks, as he only attempted one kick in excess of 50 yards all season. Graham is an unrestricted free agent, and given how close he was to losing the positional battle during training camp, it's not expected that he will return to New Orleans in 2015.
Rotowire: Nov 25 / 8:50a ET
News: Graham made both of his field goal attempts - with a long of 34-yards - and converted on all three of his extra point kicks in Monday night's loss to the Ravens.
Impact: After a tumultuous preseason, Graham is quietly now 17-of-18 on field goals for the season. Though he's rarely been asked to kick from distance, he's proven to be a capable option for the Saints. Fantasy owners, however, may not be as enamored with his production, as he ranks just 14th in points scored among kickers. The main culprit for his mediocre output has been a Saints' offense that has been inconsistent, to say the least, and even when things are going well, rarely settles for field goals. Still, things may be looking up for Graham owners, as the Saints' remaining opponents feature some of the weaker defenses in the league, starting with a Week 13 matchup against the Steelers.
