Saints TE Jimmy Graham underwent wrist surgery earlier this month. It'll keep him out of the Pro Bowl, but he's expected to be fine for minicamp and training camp this summer. Graham played through the nagging wrist injury for much of the season. It's at least partly to blame for his drop in production. Graham's catches, yards, and TDs were all down from 2011. He dropped a career-high 15 balls. Still, he finished #1 among TEs in fantasy points and will return as a top-2 option at the position in 2013 fantasy drafts.
Saints TE Jimmy Graham dislocated the ring finger on his right hand during overtime on Sunday. It was "bent sideways at an anatomically incorrect angle," according to insider Jeff Duncan. But Graham returned just a couple plays later and made a game-saving fumble recovery. "I didn't think about the finger," Graham said. "It felt like a loose ball on the basketball court, and I had to dive in and get it. I've been diving on hardwood since I was a little kid." Graham should be able to play Week 17, but the finger could impact his ability to catch the ball. He's already been dealing with an ongoing wrist issue, which is at least partly to blame for his career-high 13 drops.
Saints HC Joe Vitt revealed that TE Jimmy Graham has been dealing with an "ongoing" wrist issue. It's unclear when the injury occurred, but it helps explain Graham's lackluster production lately. He's managed just 13 catches for 148 yards and 0 TDs in his last 3 games. Graham is in no danger of missing Sunday's game against the Bucs though. And he retains as much upside as any TE in fantasy football.
Saints TE Jimmy Graham (ankle) is active for tonight's game against the Broncos. There's a good chance his snaps will be limited. But if you've waited on him, get him into fantasy lineups. Besides maybe Vernon Davis, Graham is the best fantasy option among TEs that have yet to play.
Saints TE Jimmy Graham (ankle) made the trip with his team to Denver. It keeps his chances alive to play against the Broncos tonight, although Graham remains a true 50-50, game-time decision. If he's active, we'd get him into fantasy lineups. But owners hoping to start Graham need to have another alternative on hand. Among the guys who could be available in your league, we'd rank them Jacob Tamme, Joel Dreessen, David Thomas, Rob Housler.
Saints TE Jimmy Graham (ankle) will be a game-time decision for Sunday night's showdown with the Broncos. He was limited in practice all week, although he reportedly "did more" on Friday. He seems like a true 50-50 bet to play. Graham is worth waiting on, but owners should add backup TE David Thomas in case Graham ends up inactive.

Saints TE Jimmy Graham (ankle) was limited in practice again on Thursday. He's only been participating in individual drills. His status for Sunday night's game against the Broncos is still completely up in the air. Check back tomorrow for another update, but we're guessing that Graham will be a game-time decision. If you're hoping to use him, we'd recommend adding backup TE David Thomas, who scored in Graham's absence last week.
Saints TE Jimmy Graham (ankle) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. Interim HC Joe Vitt said he looked "very, very good." It's obviously a step in the right direction, but Graham should still be considered iffy for Sunday night's game against the Broncos. We'll continue to update his status leading right up until game time.
Saints interim HC Joe Vitt says the team "feels good" about TE Jimmy Graham's chances of returning for Week 8. They plan on testing that injured ankle on Wednesday. The fact that Graham was able to get in limited practices this past Thursday and Friday bodes well for his Week 8 outlook. Check back Wednesday to see how he fared in practice.
Saints TE Jimmy Graham (ankle) did not travel with the team to Tampa and has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bucs. The fact that he was able to practice a bit this week makes us think it's not a high-ankle sprain he's dealing with. But Graham should still be considered iffy for Week 8. David Thomas will step in as New Orleans' starting TE but is just a desperation option in fantasy. Marques Colston, Lance Moore, and Darren Sproles should all pick up extra targets in Graham's absence.
Saints TE Jimmy Graham (ankle) didn't do much in practice this week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bucs. He'll be a game-time decision. And insider Mike Triplett confirms that Graham "might be limited even if he plays." Of course, a gimpy Graham is still plenty capable of finding the end zone. If he's active, consider him a risk/reward fantasy starter.
Saints TE Jimmy Graham (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. It's the best news we've heard on him all week, and essentially rules out a high-ankle sprain. Graham still shouldn't be considered a lock to play this Sunday though. In fact, beat writer Mike Triplett believes he'll be a game-time decision. Check back tomorrow for another update.
Saints TE Jimmy Graham (ankle) was held out of practice on Wednesday. It's certainly not a good sign after he had the bye week to heal up. PFT reported that Graham is expected to play on Sunday, though, and interim HC Aaron Kromer said he "looks good" running around off to the side. Still, reliable beat writer Mike Triplett considers Graham "very questionable" for Week 7. We'll have another update tomorrow.
A source tells Pro Football Talk that Saints TE Jimmy Graham (ankle) is expected to play against the Bucs this Sunday. The team has been mum on his status. But Graham played through the injury 2 weeks ago and got a well-timed bye to heal up. We'll keep an eye on his practice participation this week. If Graham is active, though, you're starting him.
Saints TE Jimmy Graham rolled his ankle near the end of the 1st half of Sunday night's game against the Chargers. He played sparingly in the 2nd and was mostly relegated to blocking duties. Graham finished with just 1 catch on 2 targets for 4 yards. The fact that he was able to contribute at all after suffering the injury is good news. Better news is that the Saints are off this coming week. Graham should be fine when they return in Week 7.
Saints TE Jimmy Graham returned to practice Monday after missing a few days with a sore back. The injury is a non-issue. Graham is our top-ranked TE.
Saints TE Jimmy Graham was held out of Thursday night's preseason game with a back injury. He apparently went down hard in Wednesday's practice and was a bit sore the next morning. It seems like New Orleans is just playing it safe here with their stud TE. We'll keep an eye on Graham, but consider his fantasy stock is unchanged.
Despite an insanely productive 2011 campaign, Saints TE Jimmy Graham is still looking to get better. He pinpointed blocking, route-running, and yards after the catch as areas needing improvement this year. "I am kind of a perfectionist and I am always looking to get better any way possible," Graham said. "Whenever I look back to last year... I had a lot of missed opportunities out there, a lot of balls that I could have gotten to, a lot of routes that I should have been more disciplined on." As scary as it sounds, it wouldn't be surprising to see Graham take another leap forward in 2012. Remember that he played only 1 season of college football, so he's still relatively raw. No TE has more upside than Graham this year.
As expected, Saints TE Jimmy Graham (back) is active for today's game against the Vikings. Those back spasms appear to be behind him. Graham remains a must-start.
Saints TE Jimmy Graham (back) put in a full week of practice. There's no reason to believe those back spasms will be a reoccurring issue. Graham remains a must-start, unless you own that Gronkowski guy.
