Jimmy Graham has been playing with lingering wrist injury: Fantasy implications

USA TODAY Sports

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham says he's been playing all season with a nagging wrist injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham said on Friday that he's been playing since the preseason with a wrist injury. Graham, according to Larry Holder of The Times-Picayune, has been using the same tape job on both wrists to conceal the injury.

Graham missed some time earlier this season because of an ankle injury but has not been on the team's injury report because of an injured wrist. The Saints face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact: Graham has had some good games this season, even if he has been playing with an injured wrist. Fantasy owners have to play him when he's healthy because of his chemistry with Drew Brees and the team's pass-heavy offense.

Graham had 56 yards in last week's loss to the New York Giants but is still a Top 3 fantasy tight end for Week 15.
