Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (foot) is hopeful of a more expanded role in Week 9 against the New York Jets. He said Friday, Nov. 1, that he hopes to play more than the 18 snaps he played last week. "I'm not sure really," Graham said. "Hopefully I'll be able to play more, but that's all on (head coach Sean Payton) and all of our coaches and our doctors and what they think."
Graham is the top fantasy option at the position when healthy, but right now he should only be considered a low-end TE1 in most leagues due to his snaps count. If he proves he can play a full game, or anything close to it, he'll be back to Top 5 status in Week 10.
