Jimmy Graham had five receptions for 63 yards and a touchdown during the Saints' loss to the Broncos on Sunday Night Football. We break down the fantasy implications.
Jimmy Graham had five receptions for 63 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets during the New Orleans Saints' loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday Night Football. Graham had not played since suffering an ankle injury early in Week 5 against the San Diego Chargers.
Graham has now caught a touchdown in four of the five full games he has participated in this season. He has 20 receptions for 315 yards and four touchdowns on the season.
Fantasy Impact: After a brief hiatus, it appears that Graham has made his way back to fantasy relevance. He showed no rust, and Drew Brees showed plenty of confidence in his tight end by targeting him more than anyone else outside of Marques Colston.
Consider Graham a must-start in just about every fantasy format going forward. Next week's matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles is a tough one on paper, but expect Graham to see plenty of targets regardless.
