Saints TE Jimmy Graham on injured shoulder: It 'was a battle every game'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2014) Saints tight end Jimmy Graham acknowledged that playing with a bum shoulder "was a battle every game," according to the Times-Picayune. Graham told reporters Friday he may need offseason shoulder surgery, depending on the results on an MRI exam, which he'll undergo as soon as the season comes to an end.

Graham injured his shoulder Week 5 against Tampa Bay but returned two weeks later without missing any game action. He has clearly not been the same since the injury and was on a snap count his first two games back.

"I'm not going to make any excuses for it," Graham said. "I think everyone plays hurt in this league. That's just a part of the job."

Graham has the fewest receiving yards since his rookie year in 2010. He needs 165 yards in Sunday's season finale against Tampa Bay in order to surpass the 1,000-yard threshold for the second consecutive season.


Report: Saints' Jimmy Graham to have MRI on shoulder


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2014) Saints tight end Jimmy Graham will have an MRI on his shoulder next week, according to the New Orleans Advocate

Graham initially injured his shoulder back in Week 5, but has been able to play through the injury all season. While his touchdown total has remained solid, Graham's yardage is down this year. It's possible he's more injured than he's let on all season, and the injury is serious enough that the team will send him for the MRI. Once the team has a diagnosis, Graham will evaluate with team doctors.


Saints TE Jimmy Graham registered another 10-TD season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Saints tight end Jimmy Graham become the first player in franchise history with three seasons of three-plus touchdowns during Sunday's loss to Atlanta.

Graham came down with a 4-yard touchdown pass from Drew Brees in the fourth quarter. He was targeted 10 times and finished with six catches for 53 yards and a score in a 30-14 defeat. He moved into second place in franchise history with 51 career touchdown receptions.

New Orleans will face Tampa Bay in Week 17.


Saints TE Jimmy Graham breaks two-game slump


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) Saints tight end Jimmy Graham was once again a big part of the offense Monday night in Chicago. After catching three passes for 25 yards over his previous two games, Graham caught five passes for a team-high 87 yards in the easy win.

Graham tied for the team lead with seven targets. However, he was unable to come down with a contested end-zone fade late in the third quarter.

Graham looked spry, pulling in catches for 29 and 22 yards and trying to hurdle safety Brock Vereen in the fourth quarter. Graham will try to end his three-game scoreless streak Week 16 against the Falcons.


No reason to panic over Jimmy Graham


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2014) OK. So one week after getting shut out at Pittsburgh, Saints tight end Jimmy Graham, heretofore considered a Fantasy stud, caught just three passes for 25 yards Week 14 against Carolina. That's upsetting. I'll grant you that.

But what are you going to do about it? Maybe if trading was still an option, I could see how you might consider the possibility that the shoulder sprain he suffered way back in Week 5 is too much to overcome or that defenses have suddenly figured him out five years into his career. At that point, every tight end in the game is theoretically within your reach, so it doesn't hurt to examine every possible angle.

But this late in the season, the only places you can look for alternatives are the waiver wire and your bench. And unless you somehow have both Graham and Rob Gronkowski on your roster, I'm going to say neither offers an adequate replacement.

Even if Graham's shoulder is still bothering him, as he suggested earlier in the week, he still has six touchdowns in seven games since returning. You know how many other tight ends have six touchdowns during that stretch? Try zero. Graham still led the Saints in targets in Week 14 with 11. You know how many tight ends have gotten more than 11 targets in any game this season? Heading into Week 14, only seven. Graham himself was the only one to do it more than once.

The last two weeks haven't been what you hoped to see from a player of his caliber, but Graham's potential from week to week remains too great for you to sit him.


Saints TE Jimmy Graham held to three catches Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) A disastrous Sunday afternoon at home for the Saints certainly filtered down to struggling tight end Jimmy Graham.

Graham, who is dealing with a sore shoulder, was held to just one catch in the first three quarters and finished with three for a mere 25 yards despite having 11 passes thrown his way. It's the fifth game this season in which he has gained 36 yards or less through the air.

He will try to raise his level of play against the visiting Bears next Monday night.


Report: Shoulder injury still bothering Saints' Jimmy Graham


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2014) Despite not being listed on the Saints’ injury report, tight end Jimmy Graham told reporters Friday his shoulder has affected his ability to play, reports NBCsports.com.

“At times this year the shoulder has really held me back sometimes,” Graham said. “Other times I’m able to fight through the pain. I just got to man up and keep doing it.”

Graham did not record a catch or a target Week 13 against the Steelers. The Saints play the Panthers Week 14.


Steelers' defensive tactics keep Jimmy Graham off stat sheet


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Fantasy owners were devastated Sunday when star Saints tight end Jimmy Graham had no catches during a 35-32 victory against the Steelers. In fact, Graham wasn't even targeted in the win, which was highly unusual since he leads New Orleans with 87 targets.

While Fantasy owners were not happy with Graham's production, Graham himself seemed fine with what transpired Sunday.

"For me, it's all about the W's. I don't care if it's zero catches, 10 catches or 20, as long as we win," Graham said, per ESPN.

Graham explained his absence of stats was a result of the Steelers using several different defensive tactics against him, which included safeties Troy Polamalu and Will Allen were undercutting most of his routes.

"Usually, they wait 'til I break. But he's a smart player," Graham said of Polamalu. "And [Allen], he's a smart player too, he did it once or twice. I can tell that they're watching a lot of film and looking at tendencies and looking at formations and splits. 

"But we'll watch film and we'll look at ways that we can expose that."


Jimmy Graham disappears, is not targeted


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Saints tight end Jimmy Graham is a huge part of the team's offensive plan on most weeks, but he wasn't involved at all in a 35-32 win over the Steelers in Week 13.

Graham wasn't even targeted in Sunday's game, the first time he has failed to have a pass thrown his way since 2010. And, though it is his second game without a catch this season, it is his first while healthy, as he was used as little more than a decay during his shutout in Week 7 against the Lions.

Graham's role has been a bit smaller than expected recently, but he has made up for that with six touchdowns in the last six games. Sunday's game should be viewed as a bump in the road for one of the best Fantasy tight ends around, however it is clear he is not quite the dominant force he has been in the past. 


Jimmy Graham not targeted once in rout of Pittsburgh


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Saints' star tight end Jimmy Graham was not targeted one time in New Orleans 35-32 win over Pittsburgh Sunday. 

In a game that saw Drew Brees throw five touchdowns, including backup tight end Benjamin Watson and Erik Lorig, Graham was held in check. 

Graham will look to bounce back next week against Carolina. He had seven catches for 81 yards and a touchdown in their last matchup in Week 9. 


Jimmy Graham continues scoring tear on MNF


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) Saints tight end Jimmy Graham has six touchdown catches over his past five games after hauling in two Monday night against the Ravens. Graham caught a 10-yard touchdown in the first quarter and a 2-yard score in the fourth as Drew Brees repeatedly looked his way in the red zone.

Graham drew a game-high 10 targets and finished with six catches for 47 yards. He's up to nine touchdowns after recording 16 last season.

Graham visits the Steelers in Week 13.


Saints' Jimmy Graham makes marginal impact after injury scare


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Saints tight end Jimmy Graham worked past an injury scare early on, but was never the same in his team's 27-10 defeat to Cincinnati in Week 11.

Graham took a late hit on the shoulder by Cincinnati safety George Iloka on the opening drive of the game. He stepped out for a few plays before returning to the game. He failed to make much of an impact the rest of the way, catching all three of his targets for 29 yards in the loss.

Graham has 623 receiving yards and seven touchdowns this season. He will look to get back on track Week 12 against the Ravens.


Big plays missing, but Jimmy Graham still dangerous


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Saints tight end Jimmy Graham has put any concerns about the health of his shoulder in the rearview mirror with his recent performance, as he found the end zone two more times in Week 10 against the 49ers.

Graham hauled in 10 of 13 passes thrown his way in Sunday's overtime loss, but had just 76 yards, as the 49ers largely held him in check down the field. However, as has been the case since his return from that injury, he made the most of his chances in the red zone, hauling in two touchdowns to give him four over the last three games.

Graham hasn't had a reception go beyond 30 yards all season, which would be a first for his career. However, he has sustained his status as one of the most feared red-zone targets in the league, helping make up for a dip in his overall production. Graham might not be quite as good as he was a year ago, but it's hard to argue with these kinds of results, as he remains the top Fantasy option at the tight end position.


Saints tight end Jimmy Graham scores twice in Week 10 loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Saints tight end Jimmy Graham extended his scoring game streak to three games with two touchdown receptions in a 27-24 overtime loss Week 10 to San Francisco.

Graham continues to be quarterback Drew Brees’ favorite red zone target with touchdowns of 11 and 2 yards. Graham finished with 10 receptions on 13 targets, and 76 receiving yards.

Graham almost had three touchdowns after catching a 47-yard Hail Marry pass from Brees, but Graham was called for offensive pass interference on the last play of regulation, nullifying the winning score.

Graham will have a chance to extend his scoring streak at home in Week 11 against Cincinnati.


Saints TE Jimmy Graham, WR Kenny Stills probable for Week 10


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Saints tight end Jimmy Graham (shoulder) and wide receiver Kenny Stills (thigh) were labeled probable for Sunday's game against the 49ers in Week 10, per the team's official website. Graham is coming off his third straight game back from injury. Stills cracked the 70-yard mark his last time out against the Panthers. Both players were never in any danger of missing game action Week 10.

Saints TE Jimmy Graham scores, looks like old self in Week 9


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2014) Saints tight end Jimmy Graham appeared to be back to his old self, scoring his fifth touchdown of the season Thursday night against the Panthers in Week 9.

After a pass interference penalty that brought the team to the 1-yard line, Graham came down with a reception in the end zone for a 1-yard score with three seconds remaining in the first half. He caught five passes for 50 yards and a score at halftime. He only caught two passes the rest of the way and finished with seven grabs for a team-high 83 yards and score on seven targets in a 28-10 victory.

Graham has scored in back-to-back games. He'll look to extend his scoring streak to three at home in Week 10 against the 49ers.


Saints rule TE Jimmy Graham active for TNF


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2014) As expected, the Saints officially listed tight end Jimmy Graham active for Thursday's showdown against the Panthers. Graham, who has been dealing with a nagging shoulder injury, was limited in practice all week and was never in any danger of missing game action.

He has 39 catches for 435 yards and four touchdowns on the season.


Saints TE Jimmy Graham listed as questionable


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) The Saints listed tight end Jimmy Graham as questionable for Thursday's game at Carolina. Graham put in limited practices all week and is fully expected to start.

Saints TE Jimmy Graham limited Tuesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2014) Saints tight end Jimmy Graham practiced on a limited basis Tuesday in advance of Thursday's game at Carolina, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Graham continues to deal with a shoulder injury but is fully expected to start against the Panthers.

Saints list TE Jimmy Graham as limited Monday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) Saints tight end Jimmy Graham would have been a limited participant had the team practiced Monday, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Graham continues to nurse a shoulder injury but caught five passes for 59 yards and a touchdown Sunday night against the Packers.

Jimmy Graham appears to be back on track


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/27/2014) For the first two quarters Week 8 against Green Bay, Saints tight end Jimmy Graham looked like he was just a decoy again, as was the case in Week 7, when he went without a catch. But Graham, who's still working his way back from a shoulder sprain, came to life in the second half, catching five passes for 59 yards and a touchdown.

The touchdown -- a 22-yard grab in which he had to extend his arms over his head while backpedaling -- was especially encouraging because he had only three touchdowns in five games before the injury.

Graham is still at less than 100 percent and will have a short week to prepare for Thursday night's game at Carolina, but he recently said he'll live in the training room to make sure he's ready. Based on what he showed he could do in just one half Sunday, you'll want to keep him active in Fantasy.


Saints' Graham to 'live in treatment room' in prep for Thursday's game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) The farther he gets away from a shoulder injury he suffered Week 5, the more Saints tight end Jimmy Graham is starting to round into his All-Pro form. After a slow start Sunday against the Packers, Graham had a strong second half to finish with five catches for 59 yards and one touchdown in a 44-23 win.

Though, Graham admitted after Sunday's game it's going to take some work to get ready for the quick turnaround for Thursday's game against the Panthers.

"(Monday’s) gonna be pretty rough for me, I already know. But I’ll take the next 48 hours, that’s really what’s most important, trying to get the swelling and what-not down and try to get ready on Thursday," Graham said, per ESPN. "I’ll pretty much live in the treatment room, and I’ll be hooked up to all kinds of stuff while I sleep."

Graham didn't have a catch in the first half Sunday, extending his streak without a reception to six quarters. However, Graham said he didn't get frustrated with the lack of stats.

"(Coach) Sean (Payton) always tells me, 'Hey, be patient. You know, at a big moment, when it matters, we’re gonna come your way. And we’re gonna come your way big,'" Graham said. "So he’s telling me that all through the first half, and he goes through some plays and says, 'Hey listen, it’s your time.' So when you have a head coach that does that for you and you have an offensive coordinator that does that for you -- and Pete Carmichael came up to me and said the same thing -- its buckle your chin strap, because it’s coming your way."


Jimmy Graham goes off in the third quarter


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) Saints tight end Jimmy Graham had zero catches on one target at halftime of Sunday's win over the Packers. Drew Brees finally began targeting Graham in the third quarter, and the results were striking.

Graham caught all five of his passes in the period and proved to be a complete mismatch when he outjumped Packers corner Tramon Williams for a 22-yard touchdown. He finished with those five grabs on six targets for 59 yards.

Up to four touchdowns this year, Graham still does not look fully healed from his shoulder injury. But he's once again a major factor in the Saints' offense. He'll visit the Panthers on Thursday.


Saints TE Jimmy Graham ready to roll


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Saints tight end Jimmy Graham, who was questionable with a shoulder injury, is active as expected for Sunday night's game against the Packers. Graham is expected to play more than he did Week 7 when he played 30 snaps and was targeted twice without a catch.

Graham put in limited practices throughout last week.


Report: Saints Jimmy Graham primed for bigger role Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/25/2014) In an interview on CBS Sports Radio Saturday, Saints sideline reporter Kristian Garic indicated that tight end Jimmy Graham will have a "little bit more of a bigger role" Sunday night against the Packers, per CBS Senior Fantasy Writer Dave Richard.

Because of a nagging shoulder injury, Graham was limited to only 41 percent of the team's snaps in Week 7 at Detroit and was held without a grab. He was a limited participant in practice all week and was labeled questionable for Week 8.

Graham has 34 catches for 376 yards and three touchdowns this season.
