Earnest Graham Fantasy: Buccaneers RB Has Solid Start With 109 Yards

Earnest Graham demonstrated he could shoulder the load as the main running back for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with 17 carries for 109 yards against the New Orleans Saints. He averaged 6.4 yards per carry. Graham also caught two passes for 22 yards.

Graham benefited from an injury to LeGarrette Blount, allowing him the opportunity to start against the New Orleans Saints. He's been used in a variety of role for the Bucs this season, but this time he was in line to receiver more snaps than his season high of six back in Week 1. He entered Sunday with 84 yards on 18 carries, but had more success in the air, grabbing 23 passes for 143 yards through the first five games of the season.

Yahoo!'s Week 6 rankings had him as the No. 21 back entering the weekend, making him a decent secondary start.
