Jimmy Graham, Marques Colston Fantasy Recap: Saints Passing Game Explosive In Defeat

For New Orleans Saints fans, Sunday's loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was a tough game to stomach. For fantasy owners, it was a strong return to form for the Saints receiving corps. Although Drew Brees struggled through three interceptions, his 383 yards were capitalized on by the likes of tight end Jimmy Graham and wide receiver Marques Colston. Graham led the team with 124 yards on seven catches, while Marques Colston grabbed 118 yards and a touchdown on seven catches.

Graham has emerged as an impressive fantasy prospect at the tight end position and is a must start moving forward. Colston has been recovering his a collarbone injury and showed that he is in fact 100% and good to go. He should be reinserted into your lineup on a regular basis.

The Saints passing attack faces a nice little string of opponents over the next month leading into their bye week. They host the Indianapolis Colts, travel St. Louis to face the Rams, and then host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They should be able to put up solid passing numbers in all three of those games.
