Jimmy Graham's Updated Fantasy Trade Value After Week 8
New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham was no guarantee to start in Week 8 against the Buffalo Bills because of a partially torn plantar fascia ligament in his foot, according to Marc Sessler of NFL.com, but he showed no signs of injury in this one.
He may have tallied just three catches for 37 yards in the contest, but he and Drew Brees hooked up twice in the end zone. He had been limited in the game because of the injury, but the game plan revolved around him when on the field.
Is Graham worth trading?
Graham is certainly an injury risk moving forward. He should be able to play if the ligament in his foot remains partially torn, but a full tear would more than likely result in the end of his season. As a result, expect him to be on the injury report for the rest of the season.
Trading him now could be either a sell-high or sell-low, depending on how your trading partner looks at it. Owners could look to acquire him for a low price because of the uncertainty of his injury, while others might be willing to give up a ton of talent because of his propensity to find the end zone.
As arguably the league's best tight end, many fantasy owners would likely share that latter sentiment and take the risk.
Graham owners should obviously look to acquire the most talent as possible, but they should also realize that his injury does lower his value just a bit. In any case, trading away Graham would be a huge decision.
If you trade him, don't accept anything less than a high-end running back or receiver. You should also have a top-10 option already on your roster at tight end to replace him.
