Jimmy Graham continues fantasy dominance in Week 5

Rob Grabowski-USA TODAY Sports

No surprise in Chicago, Jimmy Graham was the most targeted player on the Saints in Week 5. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jimmy Graham caught 10 passes for 135 yards on the road against the Bears in Week 5. He was targeted a team-high 11 times by Drew Brees, as he constantly found holes in the secondary and down the seam.

Although Graham's stat line was impressive once again, he failed to score a touchdown for the first time in 2013. Graham has six touchdowns in five games now. He's still on pace to score 19 times this season.

Fantasy impact: Owners are likely disappointed Graham didn't find the end zone, but that streak was bound to come to an end at some point. Another 135 yards to his season total is nothing to scoff at. Graham is easily the best fantasy tight end in the league, and even when Rob Gronkowski returns, he's likely to retain that title.

The Saints play the Patriots next week, so we could have a Graham-Gronk matchup. Expect Brees to continue to target Graham as often as he can. He's a nightmare to line up against for any defense, and it won't be surprising to see him get back in the scoring column once again.
