Jimmy Graham going nuts against the Falcons for Saints and fantasy owners

Jimmy Graham racking up the offense on Sunday.

Jimmy Graham has been Drew Brees' go-to guy with seven catches on eight targets for 146 yards and two TDs against the Falcons on Sunday.

Graham started out the season as an absolute monster with three TDs on his first three games and putting up a combined 17 receptions for 172 yards, for an average of 57 yards per game. Graham entered today's game with 38 catches on 63 targets for 387 yards and five TDs in seven contests.

The three-step drops of Brees sets up extremely nicely for Graham and he has been able to expose the Falcons this week in the middle of their secondary. Although, Atlanta's superstar WILL linebacker Sean Weatherspoon is not active for today's game and his absence is really hurting them.

Graham looks to be over his injury woes and he should continue to go nuts for the Saints and for the Miami product's fantasy owners.
