Jimmy Graham injury news is stressful for fantasy football owners and New Orleans Saints fans. The Graham injury could possibly keep him out of the Week 8 game against the Buffalo Bills, but there is also a chance that he could still play in the game on Sunday (Oct. 27). According to NFL Network on Sunday morning, he is going to be a game-time decision.
This is a tough position for fantasy owners to be in, because it means constant updating of team pages and a sharp eye on the reports coming out as the game approaches. The only real advice that can be given for him is to turn on the channels airing football and start paying close attention to the pre-game reports. It is because of the partially torn plantar fascia he sustained against the New England Patriots in Week 6 that he could end up missing the game.
Most of the week the Pro Bowl tight end was sitting out of practice, meaning that even if he does play against the Bills, he could see a downturn in the number of targets from Drew Brees. Still, fewer targets from Brees still means he could figure into some red zone chances for the Saints. If he does get the green light, fantasy owners need to just start him and hope for the best unless an owner is stocked with two really good tight ends.
This Jimmy Graham injury certainly runs the risk of derailing a team if he doesn't play in Week 8, but the New Orleans Saints simply haven't committed to ruling him out or prepping him to play yet.
