Jimmy Graham has 2 scores, tops 100 yards in big fantasy day

Stacy Revere

Graham has been hot this season, cementing his place as the top tight end. We break down the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham had a huge day Sunday, hauling in nine passes for 134 yards. He had two touchdowns as the Saints beat the Arizona Cardinals, 31-7.

Graham had a 16-yard touchdown pass in the first half, and iced the game away with a 7-yard touchdown with 5:25 left. He now sits at 358 receiving yards through three games, with four touchdowns.

Fantasy impact: Prorate Graham's numbers to a 16-game season, and he's on pace for 1,909 receiving yards and 21 touchdowns. That's supremely unlikely, of course, but it just goes to show how strong the star tight end has been through three weeks so far. He could even have a fifth touchdown, as he had one turned over on replay in Week 2.

Graham was the consensus No. 1 tight end in fantasy drafts, especially with co-top guy Rob Gronkowski pent up with injuries. With this kind of production, he is easily earning his draft slot. Graham is an absolute stud.
