Jimmy Graham sits out of practice Wednesday, should be fine for fantasy vs. Dallas

Chris Graythen

Jimmy Graham did not practice on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham sat out of practice on Wednesday. He is on the injury report for foot and elbow injuries and should be expected to play against the Dallas Cowboys.

The elbow injury is new, but Graham has been bothered by a foot injury since he was shut out in New England back in Week 6. He's been much better since the Week 7 bye, scoring two TDs in each of his last two games.

Graham should be fine and the Saints are likely just taking it easy on him. The training staff was working on him throughout the game on Sunday, so he's clearly not back to 100 percent.

Fantasy impact: Even though he might not get his usual work load, Graham is still an absolute must-start player. He ranks fifth in yards and leads the NFL in receiving TDs. He should have a tremendous game with the Dallas Cowboys really not having anyone on their roster to cover Graham. What's more, Marques Colston is not 100 percent, so Graham will continue to see a ton of targets in the red zone.
