New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham caught three passes for 42 yards on Monday Night Football in an epic beatdown by the Seattle Seahawks. Graham was targeted a team high nine times but only managed to haul in the three passes. Going into the Monday Night tilt, Graham was averaging 86 yards per game and had eleven touchdowns despite missing a game. Graham is by far the most targeted receiver by quarterback Drew Brees, who really had an off night and thew for only 147 yards against a tough Seahawks defense.

Fantasy impact: Graham will remain a must start despite the performance as Seattle has one of the best defenses in the league and is a tough place to play. The Saints do have tough matchups down the pike and must face the Carolina Panthers twice in the next few weeks. The Saints are a much better home team and they start with the Panthers at home in Week 14. The Panthers are giving up the eighteenth most fantasy points to tight ends.
