Jimmy Graham bounces back with another score for Saints, fantasy owners

Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

The Saints tight end had a rough game in Week 15, but he showed he was fine on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham proved his struggles in Week 15 were largely a fluke, as he bounced back to a highly productive day Sunday. Graham scored the Saints' lone touchdown in the team's 17-13 loss to the Carolina Panthers.

Graham caught five passes for 73 receiving yards and that score in Sunday's game, a week after the St. Louis Rams held the tight end to 25 yards on two catches. Sunday's 13 fantasy points marked Graham's 11th double-digit fantasy day in 15 outings.

Fantasy impact: Graham is still easily the best tight end in fantasy; he'd be the No. 3 wide receiver in the game if he was slotted there. There's not much to worry about with him at any point, and any bad games he has are just one of those things fantasy owners have to live with; you can't ever bench someone with talent like Graham's.
