Jimmy Graham named NFC Offensive Player of the Week, fantasy value remains high for Week 11

Wesley Hitt

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham on Wednesday was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week. We break down the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham on Wednesday was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week following his team's win over the previously undefeated Atlanta Falcons. Graham had seven catches for 146 yards and two touchdowns in Week 10.

Graham has scored touchdowns in three straight weeks for the Saints, who face the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Graham and the Saints were a yard from this award likely going to someone else as Graham didn't even have the most catches or touchdowns for a tight end in that game. Tony Gonzalez had 11 for 122 yards and two touchdowns for the Falcons.

Graham, however, remains near the top of the tight end fantasy rankings, especially after his play in the last three weeks. He remains the go-to target for Drew Brees and is in line for another big game on Sunday against the Raiders in Week 11.
