Saints get offensive contributions Week 7
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Saints received several offensive contributions in their Week 7 loss at Detroit. Among them, rookie wideout Brandin Cooks caught two of his three targets for 23 yards. Fullback Austin Johnson made a 13-yard touchdown grab and added a 5-yard rush.

Tight end Josh Hill caught an 8-yard pass, and tight end Benjamin Watson had a 3-yard grab. Wideout Robert Meachem was targeted three times without a catch.

Saints TE Jimmy Graham likely a game-time decision for Week 7
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Saints tight end Jimmy Graham told reporters he's unsure if he'll play Week 7 at Detroit because of a nagging shoulder injury, according to ESPN. Graham told reporters Friday he believes his status will come down to the coach's evaluation during pregame warmups.

Graham suffered a shoulder sprain Week 5 against Tampa Bay but returned to practice for the first time as a limited participant on Thursday. He was a limited participant on Friday as well and has been officially ruled as questionable. If he's unable to play on Sunday, the team will likely turn to Josh Hill and Benjamin Watson for all the tight end targets against the Lions.

Fantasy Analysis | 1413494060
Sizing up the Saints' tight end situation
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Although coach Sean Payton has been less than forthcoming about the situation, odds are Jimmy Graham misses Week 7 at Detroit with the shoulder sprain he suffered in Week 5, before the bye. The Saints  will have to turn to others at tight end.

Those others figure to be Josh Hill and Benjamin Watson. Jamey Eisenberg prefers one. Dave Richard prefers the other. Neither likes either enough to start in a standard 12-team league.

Part of the problem is that both contributed about the same numbers in Week 5, when Graham suffered the injury. Watson got more than twice as many targets, but Hill actually got a little more yardage. Of course, Watson also played 86 percent of the team's snaps to Hill's 35 percent.

To me, that's reason enough to side with Watson, but he'll get enough interference from Hill that we're talking only deep leagues here, as in 16 teams or more.

Josh Hill, Benjamin Watson fill in for injured Jimmy Graham Week 5
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Saints tight ends Josh Hill and Benjamin Watson each filled in for an injured Jimmy Graham (shoulder) in a Week 5 overtime victory over Tampa Bay at home on Sunday.

Hill caught a 37-yard pass from Drew Brees in the second quarter for his longest gain of the afternoon. He caught all three of the passes thrown his way for 53 yards. Watson came down with catches for 12, 13, 5, 1 and 11 yards on the afternoon. He caught seven of the five passes thrown his way for 43 yards in a 37-31 overtime victory.

The Saints have a bye week before facing the Lions at Ford Field in Week 7. If Graham is unavailable to play, the team will likely turn to these two tight ends at Detroit.
