The Saints tight end has traveled with the team, but will he play? We break down the fantasy implications.
New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham has traveled with the team to Denver in anticipation of their Sunday night game against the Broncos, but he will still be a game-time decision until he tests out his injured ankle. Graham missed last week's game against the Buccaneers and did not travel with the team to Tampa, giving some hope that he may start tonight.
The Saints star receiving option has 25 catches for 252 yards on the year.
Fantasy Take: Graham was off to a great start with 248 yards and three touchdowns through four games, but his fantasy value has been on hiatus since the ankle injury. It would be risky to start him at tight end unless you have a Bronco as your backup, or possibly Vernon Davis on the Monday night game, since Graham plays on Sunday night.
It seems like even if he plays, he could be limited.
