New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham (elbow, foot) practiced on Friday and will play in the team's Week 11 game against the San Francisco 49ers. Graham was limited in practice all week but is a lock to suit up on Sunday.
Fantasy Impact: Graham's availability isn't a question. The size of his role is, though, as his snap count could be limited. Graham only played in 33 of the Saints' 83 snaps last week.
Owners shouldn't panic if this is the case again. Graham has proven before that he doesn't need a full game of snaps to do damage. He had 17 catches for 212 yards and four touchdowns in the last three weeks while dealing with his injuries.
As long as the star tight end is on the field, he will remain an elite fantasy start. The 49ers don't give up a ton of points to the tight end position but that's no reason not to start Graham. Few can match up with his lethal size and speed combination. On pace for almost 20 touchdowns on the season, Graham remains a top-two TE1.
