Jimmy Graham injury update: Foot injury could still limit fantasy value

Crystal LoGiudice-USA TODAY Spor

Jimmy Graham is still not all the way back from his foot injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham is listed as questionable to face the New York Jets on Sunday. He was limited in practice all week with a foot injury that has plagued him for three weeks.

Graham is going to play, but he'll have to manage the pain on the road. The Saints gave him just 18 snaps in last week's game against the Buffalo Bills. Graham did his magic against Buffalo and was still able to score twice on his three catches for 37 yards. He should be able to play double those snaps it's a positive sign that he didn't miss any practice this week. The Saints don't have Marques Colston at 100 percent, so they're going to need as much size in the red zone as they can get.

Fantasy impact: Obviously, you're playing Jimmy Graham in all leagues. He's one of the most valuable advantages in fantasy football and he was leading the NFL in receiving yards before he suffered his injury against the New England Patriots last month. He should also help Drew Brees. Owners can expect a big day from Graham even with the injury doubts surrounding him.
