Threat Champion Notes
5
Draven He doesn't have a gap closer, other than a slow skill-shot, so you're usually safe. Just be careful to keep your distance if you're at low health because his ultimate can hurt you really bad.
5
Miss Fortune Eh, she's really easy to lane against. She has a weak poke and similar auto-attack range.
5
Ezreal Ezreal has good pokes and a decent gap closer, but I find that he isn't too scary to lane against.
5
Sivir You have more range than her, so try and bait out her boomerang-shot and then go in and get some poke on her to push her back.
5
Lucian Lucian and Graves are very similar in lane. If you keep your [[true grit]] stacks up then you'll do fine against him.

I prefer to play safe with graves. You have to admit, Graves does have to get close and dirty when in the ADC-role. Why not make him not get 2-shotted by the enemy's tank champion?

You're ability to survive the initial burst of team fights, have CC reduction from Zephyr, and the constant ability to reposition with Quickdraw, from 20% Cooldown Reduction, will make you love to play Graves as an ADC.
