Saints | Jimmy Graham to miss Week 7

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (ankle) will not travel with the team for their Week 7 game so he can rest his injured ankle.

Fantasy Tip: David Thomas is expected to start at tight end in Graham's absence, but he isn't worth your consideration. Tampa's defense has been vulnerable through the air, so look for Drew Brees to air it out often. Marques Colston, Lance Moore and Devery Henderson should all see an increase in value. Moore and Henderson are nice flex plays at least, especially in a week with six squads on bye. Colston is an obvious start.

The Bucs have been stingy on the ground, but they have allowed backs to exploit them through the air. Darren Sproles and Pierre Thomas could have nice days catching the ball out of the backfield. Keep this in mind for all of you in point-per-reception leagues.
