Jimmy Graham Status Update: Saints TE Will Start

New Orleans Saints star tight end Jimmy Graham is expected to start and play this week despite dealing with an ankle injury. Graham was limited in practice on Wednesday, but participated fully on both Thursday and Friday. Graham should be in your starting line up if he's on your roster, as he's rated as the top tight end play this week.

Graham is going up against a St. Louis Rams defense that is among the worst in the NFL in points allowed. He's averaging just under 100 yards a game, which is fantastic for a tight end. Last week against the Colts, Graham had just 54 yards, but he also had two touchdowns. It's clear Graham has become the Saints primary target in the passing game.
