Jimmy Graham expected to be game-time decision for fantasy owners

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham (ankle) will be a game-time decision in Week 8. We break down the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham was limited in practice on Friday and is expected to be a game-time decision for Week 8 against the Denver Broncos. Graham was able to do more in practice but the team wants to see if there is any swelling in the ankle that he injured earlier this month.

Graham was held out of last week's win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but is said to have been improving in practice this week.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners will want to check the inactive list on Sunday but there is a better chance that Graham plays this week for the Saints. Graham had at least four catches in every game through the first four weeks of the season and should start producing at that pace again before too long.

If he's active, Graham is a must-start as a fantasy tight end but this could again go right down to kickoff.
