Jimmy Graham limited in practice, Week 7 fantasy value improving

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham (ankle) was limited in practice on Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham was limited in practice on Thursday because of an ankle injury. This was a slight improvement for Graham, who was held out of Wednesday's practice.

Graham sprained his right ankle in the win over the San Diego Chargers earlier this month. The Saints had a bye in Week 6 and are preparing to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 7.

Fantasy Impact: Graham hasn't had an amazing fantasy season so far but remains one of the top targets at tight end in pass-happy offense. He had just one catch against the Chargers but has had at least six receptions in three other games this season.

Graham, if active, will still be a No. 1 fantasy tight end this week against Tampa Bay but expectations should be slightly lower than usual because of the ankle injury. Fantasy owners may want to add a backup just in case Graham can't play on Sunday.
