New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham had three catches and a touchdown against the Houston Texans in Week 3. We break down the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham had a strong outing against the Houston Texans in Week 3 of the preseason. Quarterback Drew Brees found his tight end three times for 48 yards and a touchdown in the Super Dome. At 6'7, Graham looked indefensible against the Texans at times.

Analysis: Jimmy Graham is a highly sought after fantasy contributor. He is arguably the No. 1 tight end, even more so now with the departure of Robert Meachem, which could lead to him getting more targets. Graham is basically a wide receiver playing tight end, and has the measureables that make him a nightmare for NFL defenses. Having an elite passer like Drew Brees as his quarterback certainly ups his value as well. Graham is a second-to-third round pick in most fantasy leagues, and is a can't-miss selection.
