Jimmy Graham Fantasy: New Orleans Saints TE Puts Up 124 Receiving Yards

Jimmy Graham continued to prove that he is the top fantasy tight end with seven receptions and 124 receiving yards in a losing effort against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was one of three New Orleans Saints receivers who received 11 targets from Drew Brees.

Graham entered Sunday's contest as the team's leading receiver with 32 receptions for 496 yards and three touchdowns. He did that on the strength of three straight 100-plus yard receiving yard performances. In those games he had 100, 132 and 129 yards through the air. He had just one of his three touchdown catches during that span, but fantasy owners shouldn't be complaining much.

Graham is the elite of the elite tight ends in Week 6, taking the No. 1 spot in Yahoo!'s fantasy rankings.
