Jimmy Graham non factor for Saints and fantasy owners in Week 11

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham gains yards after the catch - Chris Graythen

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham had a quiet night against the San Francisco 49ers, with six receptions for 41 yards. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham caught six passes for 41 yards in the Saints Week 11 win over the San Francisco 49ers. Coming back from a foot injury, Graham made a key catch for Brees but was otherwise quiet despite leading all receivers in targets with eleven. On the year, Graham has 846 receiving yards and ten touchdowns. He remains Brees' favorite target with 91 targets.

Fantasy impact: Despite having a relatively quiet game, Graham's status as a must-start remains intact. The best thing to take away from this game is that he didn't show any adverse effects from his foot injury. The league's leading tight end should return to his winning ways for fantasy owners in Week 12 when the Saints face the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons are giving up the fifteenth-most fantasy points to tight ends.
