Description: Saints tight end Jimmy Graham was better on Sunday, but not as good as owners would have liked.
Insight: He had six receptions for 53 yards and a touchdown. Graham also just missed a second score, as he was stuffed at the goalline and eventually fumbled on the play.

Description: Saints tight end Jimmy Graham did not catch a pass versus the Steelers.
Insight: Well, that's something Pittsburgh can hang their hats on, they didn't let Graham beat them. Unfortunately for Pittsburgh, Drew Brees still threw for five touchdowns. Unfortunately for Jimmy Graham owners, he had a goose egg.
 
11/24/2014 9:28:00 AM
Description: Saints tight end Jimmy Graham was Drew Brees' favorite red zone target, catching two touchdown passes among his six receptions.
Insight: Graham has six touchdown receptions in the last five games. He's still not getting the yardage we expect, but his scoring his keeping fantasy owners happy.

Description: Saints tight end Jimmy Graham caught just three passes for 29 yards in Week 11.
Insight: Graham had strung together several good weeks, but he was a huge disappointment on Sunday against the Bengals. He remains a TE1 as fantasy owners hope the Saints offense finds itself before Week 12.

Description: As Saints tight end Jimmy Graham's shoulder continues to improve, so too do his fantasy numbers.

Description: Saints tight end Jimmy Graham remained limited in Tuesday's practice due to his shoulder.
Insight: This is simply a formality. There is no reason Graham owners should be concerned even on a short week. The tight end played in 43-of-69 snaps against Green Bay and did not suffer a setback. He is a top-three tight end option for Week 9.
 
10/27/2014 10:00:00 AM
Description: Saints tight end Jimmy Graham is obviously not 100 percent and it shows up particularly when he's trying to block.
Insight: Graham was still productive in the passing game catching five balls for 59 yards and a score. Fantasy owners can't be happy that backup tight end Josh Hill scored a late touchdown instead of Graham.
 
10/23/2014 5:00:00 PM
Description: Saints tight end Jimmy Graham remained limited in Thursday's practice due to his shoulder injury according to Mike Triplett of ESPN.
Insight: Graham will probably remain limited in practice the rest of the week. Unless he suffers a setback, Graham will play, but the question remains how involved will he be. He saw just two targets and no catches last week against the Lions. He has tremendous upside because he is Jimmy Graham, but if owners somehow have another capable tight end, it is worth to consider sitting Graham.
 
10/19/2014 7:21:00 PM
Description: Saints tight end Jimmy Graham did not catch a pass against the Lions in Week 7.

10/19/2014 9:57:00 AM
Description: Saints tight end Jimmy Graham plans to play in Week 7 against the Lions according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Insight: Graham plans to test out his shoulder to make sure. He will have a limited role, likely playing in red zone packages. The Saints used Graham the same way for a few games last year, and he still managed to lead the NFL with 16 receiving touchdowns. Graham is still a must-start.
 
10/17/2014 3:42:00 PM
Description: Saints tight end Jimmy Graham isn't sounding optimistic about his chances of playing Sunday.
Insight: Graham was expected to miss a couple of weeks with his shoulder injury, but is hoping it will get better by Sunday pre-game. Our best guess is that Ben Watson will be the Saints starter come kickoff.
 
10/16/2014 3:30:00 PM
Description: Saints coach Sean Payton insists he's optimistic that tight end Jimmy Graham might play in Week 7.
Insight: Sounds a bit like the A.J. Green situation with the coach playing games with the defensive coordinator. Graham was expected to miss a couple of weeks with his shoulder injury.
 
10/12/2014 11:22:00 AM
Description: Saints tight end Jimmy Graham could miss 2-3 weeks, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Insight: Graham and the Saints have a bye this weekend, so this won't change lineups in Week 6, but fantasy owners should make plans to be without their start tight end for a couple of weeks.
