Jimmy Graham was unable to score a touchdown against the Detroit Lions on Sunday Night Football, but the New Orleans Saints tight end was still called a "stud" by quarterback Drew Brees on the television broadcast following his team's victory. Graham caught eight of his 10 targets for 89 yards in what almost seems like a disappointing outing for the second-year pro.
One of fantasy football's dynamic duo atop the weekly tight end rankings, the New Orleans Saints' Jimmy Graham has proven to be a week-in, week-out stud at his position, and that only figured to continue entering the big Sunday night game against the Detroit Lions.
Graham led all tight ends with 67 receptions and 957 receiving yards entering the Sunday Night Football game and was second only to Rob Gronkowski with eight touchdowns before Week 13. Though the Lions' defense is good against the pass, no one's been able to slow down Graham all season -- a statistic that's likely to continue through the remainder of the fantasy football season.
