Saints | Jimmy Graham may be covered by Antonio Cromartie

The New York Jets may use CB Antonio Cromartie to cover TE Jimmy Graham (foot) in the Week 9 matchup. Graham didn't have a single target in Week 6 when the New England Patriots used CB Aqib Talib to blanket Graham. "It's a thought," head coach Rex Ryan said. "I think from a size and skill-wise (standpoint), yeah I think he could handle it. But that guy is a unique cat now. Graham has the speed of a receiver (and) the size of an offensive tackle." Graham isn't 100 percent healthy while dealing with a partially torn plantar fascia, and he played only 18 snaps in the team's Week 8 game.

Fantasy Tip: It'll be extremely tough to hold Graham without a single catch again, even if he's not 100 percent. We expect Graham to play more in Week 9, assuming he's healthier than he was last week. Regardless, he'll continue to be a red zone threat. Start him everywhere.
