• Shayne Graham's move to Baltimore should make him more valuable. He was a top 10 scorer in four of his seven seasons with the Bengals, but since he joined Cincinnati in 2003, the Ravens have attempted more field goals than any team (234) while Cincinnati has ranked 17th (205). And for leagues that reward long kicks, Graham (above) makes 80.3% of his attempts between 40 and 49 yards.

• Super Bowl hero Garrett Hartley(above) scored only 37 regular-season points thanks to a league suspension for a banned stimulant and a stint in the coach's doghouse. But including the playoffs, he scored 8.0 points per game, and the Saints' tandem of Hartley and John Carney combined for 126 points. With Carney gone, Hartley should score as many points on his own this year.
