Jimmy Graham is a beast. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

TE Jimmy Graham maintained his status as an elite fantasy tight end with seven catches for 71 yards and a score.

Analysis: Graham got 13 targets in this game and came in second in that department behind Darren Sproles' 14. There is no man in the league that can cover Graham and his power-forward frame in the Saints offense and he is totally matchup proof and with the he is going to get tons of red-zone targets. Amazingly, no other receiver or tight end saw more than four targets on Brees' 49 passes. Jimmy Graham will likely be the top fantasy tight end on our projections next week against the Kansas City Chiefs.
