Saints | Jimmy Graham bothered by shoulder

Fri, 05 Dec 2014 13:04:50 -0800

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) has still very much been bothered by a shoulder injury that he suffered earlier this year, and he said he's still managing pain "every day" that has affected his blocking abilities. "At times this year the shoulder has really held me back sometimes," Graham said. "Other times I'm able to fight through the pain. I just got to man up and keep doing it."

Fantasy Tip: Graham's zero-catch, zero-target day in Week 13 had more to do with the Pittsburgh Steelers' game plan against him, but his injury shouldn't completely be ignored. Moving to Week 14, we expect Graham to make much more noise against the Carolina Panthers at FantasyScore for $7,900.

Saints | Zero targets for Jimmy Graham

Sun, 30 Nov 2014 18:26:55 -0800

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham did not have any receptions in Week 13 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and he was not even targeted once. Graham targeted the two safeties for Pittsburgh, FS Will Allen and SS Troy Polamalu, for breaking his crossing routes. "Usually (defenders) wait until I break," Graham said Sunday, Nov. 30. "(Polamalu and Allen) are smart players. I can tell that they're watching a lot of film and looking at tendencies and formations and splits."

Fantasy Tip: It was a tough pill to swallow for fantasy owners in weekly leagues, as Week 13 is the final week of the fantasy regular season in most standard formats. And Graham was an expensive miss for those in FantasyScore leagues, and no one would have predicted zero targets for Graham.

Saints | Jimmy Graham poses matchup problem

Fri, 14 Nov 2014 09:32:17 -0800

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham will likely be covered by Cincinnati Bengals LB Emmanuel Lamur in Week 11. Lamur makes the most sense to cover Graham because of his combination of athletic ability and size (6-4, 240 pounds). However, Lamur has struggled against tight ends this year; According to ESPN Stats & Information, four tight ends caught a combined 28 passes for 339 yards, three touchdowns and 18 first downs with Lamur on the field. Lamur has faced the likes of Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta, Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski and Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen this year.

Fantasy Tip: Graham is unsurprisingly one of the most expensive tight end options at FantasyScore ($7,900), but he should put up good numbers against Lamur and the Bengals reeling defense. Consider him for your lineups.

Saints | Jimmy Graham a full participant

Thu, 06 Nov 2014 18:32:35 -0800

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Graham ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) is on track to play in Week 10, and he should be one of the top options at the position at FantasyScore with the Saints playing at home against a San Francisco defense with a banged up group of linebackers.

Saints | Jimmy Graham practices in full

Wed, 05 Nov 2014 17:27:01 -0800

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) was listed as a full participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Graham should be fine for Week 10 against the San Francisco 49ers barring any setbacks, but FantasyScore owners will want to wait to finalize their lineups until Friday. If he is probable, spend the $7,900 (or 15.8 percent of the cap) on Graham.

Saints | Jimmy Graham with another solid game

Fri, 31 Oct 2014 10:33:28 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham, who had a team-high seven catches for 83 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 9 win Thursday, Oct. 30, said a vicious hit earlier in the game inspired him to be more aggressive and physical against the Carolina Panthers. "I just need to play more emotional," said Graham. "I think early I wasn't playing emotional enough -- at least for me. I think I need to bring it that way on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and in practice. And when I do that, I think it adds something not only to my game, but it helps spur our offense."

Fantasy Tip: Graham appears back to full health after putting up touchdowns in his last two games. It's also not a coincidence that the Saints offense has been back in a groove with Graham more involved. You should feel comfortable paying for Graham in daily fantasy leagues moving forward.
