Saints | Jimmy Graham determined to improve

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (wrist, ankle) said he's hungry to improve after catching 85 passes for 982 yards and nine touchdowns a season ago. "This is probably the hungriest I've ever been to kind of right the wrongs of last year and to prove what this team can do and maybe hush up some of the naysayers," Graham said. "So for me it's all work and doing as much as I can to be the best player I can." Graham was bothered by a left wrist injury and an ankle sprain for much of last year. He isn't fully recovered from offseason wrist surgery, but he's been making catches during minicamp practices this week. Graham said he's almost back to 100 percent health. He's also more confident from working with QB Drew Brees all offseason and having head coach Sean Payton back in the fold.

Fantasy Tip: Graham's "down" season was still pretty darn productive in the grand scheme of things. With Payton back and Graham determined for more, it's safe to call him a top-tier tight end again in 2013.
