Jimmy Graham only so-so Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Saints super tight end Jimmy Graham was a bit less than super Sunday against Minnesota.

Graham caught just six passes for 54 yards and no scores - a far cry from his 10-catch, 118-yard, two-touchdown performance in Week 2 against Cleveland. He finished the first half with four receptions for 37 yards, but managed just eight targets in a game in which the Saints maintained control.

His next shot at domination will be nationally televised. The Saints play at Dallas on Sunday night in Week 4.

Jimmy Graham ties career-high with 10 catches in Sunday loss
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Saints stud tight end Jimmy Graham took a while to get rolling Sunday in Cleveland, but when he did, he was virtually unstoppable.

Graham was blanked until the last drive of the first half, then exploded for five catches on that possession, including a 9-yard touchdown in which he boxed out Browns Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden. He added three more receptions in the third quarter, among them a 1-yard scoring strike with fellow corner Buster Skrine draped on him.

The New Orleans star took advantage of single coverage by cornerbacks to tie a career-high with 10 catches for 118 yards and the two touchdowns. His 20-yard snag early in the fourth quarter set up a go-ahead score.

Graham and his Saints are set to play Minnesota next Sunday.

Jimmy Graham splitting time between tight end and receiver
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Saints' Jimmy Graham played 61 snaps Week 1 at Atlanta, but only 31 as a traditional tight end. Graham lined up as a receiver on the other 30 snaps. The New Orleans Times-Picayune considered Graham a tight end whenever he had his hand on the ground, was on the offensive line, or was very close to the line and engaged primarily in blocking.

Graham caught eight passes for 82 yards and was productive wherever he lined up, according to the paper. But his longest gain went for 17 yards.

Jimmy Graham goes without big play
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Saints tight end Jimmy Graham was still quarterback Drew Brees' favorite target Week 1 at Atlanta, leading the way in both targets (10) and receptions (eight), but he never got a chance to show off his big-play ability in the season opener. None of his receptions went for more than 17 yards, giving him a total of 82 on the day.

For most tight ends, that would be an accomplishment, but usually when Graham gets that many catches, he goes for more than 100 yards. And even more often, he scores a touchdown.

Of course, Graham wasn't the only one of Brees' targets held out of the end zone. The Saints so often found themselves inside the 5-yard line that they relied on their running game for most of their scores. They had three touchdowns on the ground compared to only one through the air.

Graham will try again for his first touchdown Week 2 at Cleveland.

Jimmy Graham should shine right away
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Saints travel to Atlanta in Week 1 to take on a Falcons team they know well.

How well? Tight end Jimmy Graham, now four years into his NFL career, has already scored seven touchdowns against them. In only one of the seven games since he became the Saints' primary tight end has he got without one, and it wasn't last year. No, he scored a touchdown in each of the Saints' two games against the Falcons, making four grabs for 45 yards in the first and five for 100 in the second.

Judging by the way the Falcons defended the pass last year, you'd wonder why he didn't score more. They allowed 31 touchdowns through he air, fourth-most in the league, and gave up the ninth-most Fantasy points to tight ends. They did switch from a 4-3 to a 3-4 scheme this offseason, but that won't have much say in Graham's production.

Chances are if you drafted him in Fantasy, you'll be starting him every week anyway, but this week is no time to get cute.
