Jimmy Graham explodes in Week 10 victory: Fantasy Implications

Chris Graythen

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham exploded for two touchdowns and nearly 150 receiving yards in Week 10. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham broke out in Week 10 versus the division rival Atlanta Falcons. On Sunday, Graham and quarterback Drew Brees were in sync, connecting seven times for 146 yards and two scores. It was another monster day for the lengthy 6'7" pass-catcher.

Their collective effort stood out in the Saints' win over the Falcons. And despite their record, this on-the-field relationship between Graham and Brees is a huge reason people still fear the Saints.

Fantasy Analysis: Like his partner in crime, Graham is a must-start on a weekly basis. In a league year where tight ends are not having extraordinary campaigns, Graham's value is unique. He is one of an elite few players at his position that have such a high ceiling, and perform on command like that.

When healthy, Graham is a consistent, top-target in the high powered New Orleans offense. Brees relies heavily on Graham, which translates well to fantasy football.
