Or how about the Falcons' switch to more 3-4 looks in 2014, which could in turn mean Umenyiora being re-classified as a linebacker by some fantasy providers. Just because it hasn't happened yet doesn't mean it won't. Add all those factors together, and there's too much risk to make any real investment in Umenyiora in 2014.
