New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham (ankle) was limited in practice on Wednesday, per Mike Triplett. The 6'7" superstar pass catcher was a scratch last week due to injury, and looks questionable heading into Week 8. This injury comes at a bad time for the Saints who are trying to salvage their season after a 0-4 start.
The good news is, Graham does seem to be healthier. The fact that he was able to participate in a light practice and run routes is a positive sign for New Orleans. However, it's not a sure thing he'll be back in time this weekend to face the Denver Broncos.
Fantasy Analysis: While it was a good sign that Graham was participating to some degree, he's not a lock to start this Sunday. Graham owners have reason to be optimistic but should be prepared to sit him at least one more week, just in case. If Graham can't go, Saints backup David Thomas is an option, while there are also players like Scott Chandler that could fill in for the week.
Graham is a must-start when healthy and in the starting lineup. He has perhaps the highest ceiling of all fantasy tight ends, as he plays an intricate role in the New Orleans high-flying offense.
