Jimmy Graham held in check, posts fantasy dud against Rams

The Saints’ best offensive weapon was silenced in Week 15 against the Rams. We break down the fantasy implications.

Crystal LoGiudice-USA TODAY Spor

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham caught two passes for 25 yards in the team's 27-16 loss to the St. Louis Rams on Sunday. Graham saw six passes thrown his way in the contest.

Fantasy impact: Coming into the game against the Rams, Graham had managed to score touchdowns in three straight games. The Rams clearly did a good job keeping him quiet in Week 15.

It has to be disappointing for his fantasy owners, considering Graham has 14 touchdowns on the year and he was averaging over 80 receiving yards per game going into this week's matchup.

Graham scored twice against the Carolina Panthers two weeks ago and the Saints will head to Carolina to face their division foes again next week. Judging by his performance this season, Graham should definitely play much better in a game that has a lot at stake in terms of playoff positioning. Any real world matchup that has big-time playoff implications can only bode well for the fantasy postseason.
