New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham delivered another productive game on Saturday night against the Texans. We break down the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham delivered another productive game on Saturday night against the Texans. Graham hauled in three passes for 48 yards and an impressive touchdown. The Saints tight end looked impossible to cover at times, just as he has throughout the preseason and training camp. Last season, Graham caught 99 passes for just over 1,300 yards and 11 touchdowns. He could be in for more of the same this season.

Analysis: Jimmy Graham and Rob Gronkowski are the clear-cut, top tight ends in fantasy football this season. While Gronkowski reeled in more touchdowns in 2011, Graham was every bit as dominant. Drew Brees has made Graham his primary option, and his tight end still might be improving. Graham is such a difference maker that he could be worth a look at the bottom of the first round in fantasy drafts.
