Fantasy football impact of the 2014 NFL schedule release

Thursday April 24th, 2014
How high will Marshawn Lynch go in this year's drafts? Be leery of pairing him with Peyton Manning.

Jimmy Graham is flat-out unguardable, and should be a consensus first-round pick in fantasy leagues. The receivers have consistently gotten the job done with Marques Colston and a rotating cast of secondary players, and there isn't any reason to expect that to slow down this year. The Manning-Rodgers-Brees triumvirate still rules in fantasy circles, and those three essentially guarantee their offenses will finish the season toward the top of the overall rankings. No fantasy owner has ever gone bankrupt having a Saint on his team during the Brees Era.
