Saints TE Jimmy Graham limited Wednesday

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham @TheJimmyGraham was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice. Interim coach Joe Vitt said Graham participated in "land-based activities" and "ran routes on air." Times-Picayune beat writer Mike Triplett added that Graham still appears questionable heading into Sunday's matchup against the Denver Broncos. Graham hasn't played since Week 5.

Fantasy Analysis:

First off, I have no idea what "land-based activities" and "ran routes on air" makes no sense. Either way, Vitt's comments are irrelevant. Graham still isn't quite ready and looks to be a game-time decision at best. The former Miami Hurricanes tight end has been dealing an ankle sprain for a couple weeks now and once he returns, fantasy owners shouldn't hesitate to start him. Drew Brees @drewbrees is still playing at a very high level, passing for at least three touchdowns in five of his six games to go along with nearly 350 passing yards per game. Monitor Graham throughout the week regarding his playing status.
