I love playing adc and just started playing ranked. I usually dominate the laning phase with a good support but it seems like I fall off during mid game. It doesnt seem like I do much during teamfights as my team dies in a few seconds, even if we are prepared. Any tips or tricks for mid game?

Mid game is usually where the AP carry shines. Unless you're fed as the ADC, all you can do is farm and try to not get caught. Late game is where you will shine if you have properly csed.

Graves is really good in early/mid game... Although he can't do anything late game

heres what you need to do as a adc

1) get fed either kills or hella farm
2) when teamfights start stay back, like way back. if you get caught its gg because they will focus you down
3) shoot the closest target. for a adc theres none of this "target so and so" its melt the closest thing to you

You're doing one of two things wrong:
1) Positioning. Do what Powwder says. NEVER be in the front and always shoot the safest target.
2) Item Build. Are you not going IE/PD/LW/BT/GA? (Ok, triforce corki/ez are good too). But otherwise, you need to run this build.

Mid game is probably the toughest for a lot of AD carries...when your base stats aren't doing enough damage and before you can afford your late game items. So, like others have said, focus on your farm.

Late game, it truly is all about positioning and target selection. Often as an ADC you'll want to hang back until the fight has started and then sneak in to pick away at high value targets. You should almost never initiate a teamfight, and you should almost always stay behind your teammates.

That said, a good team will dive straight for you, especially if you're doing well, so without a good support or someone to peel them off you, you'll be mitigated in teamfights no matter what. So working with your team and keeping your support/tank on your good side (i.e., not raging at them ever no matter what) is important as well.
