Saints TE Jimmy Graham will be game-time decision; WR Lance Moore probable

The good news for the Saints is that wide receiver Lance Moore @LanceMoore16 is ready to get back into the fold after missing a game due to a hamstring injury. The bad news is tight end Jimmy Graham @TheJimmyGraham's status for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers is much more uncertain. According to Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Graham "is as questionable as it gets after being limited all week. Might be limited even if he plays."

Fantasy Analysis:

Graham is going to be a game-time decision, and his fantasy owners have a tough decision to make if he is active Sunday morning. Even if he's limited, Graham is a phenomenal talent and a mismatch against any defense. If he's at only 70 or 80 percent, it's going to be hard to bench him. But there is a ton of risk here, especially if the Saints activate Graham only to use him as a decoy. Check back here on Sunday morning for an update on Graham's status.
With Graham banged up, Moore looks like a solid WR3 against the Bucs. His return also means Devery Henderson's fantasy value takes a steep turn back down.
