New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham is active for today’s game against the Buffalo Bills, which is a very favorable match up for the fantasy stud, but this week he is a very risky play due to the torn plantar fascia that he is dealing with in his foot.
Yes, Graham is active, but the question is still how much will he be willing to play?
From Mike Triplett of the Saints NFL Nation blog on ESPN:
Start #Saints Graham in fantasy? A very tough choice. There’s a small percentage that he won’t play or will just be a decoy. …

It would be hard to put Graham on the bench, but you strongly have to consider doing just that even though he is active.
If you have another reliable tight end or a favorable match up, that is the way for you to go.
Otherwise, you could end up placing Graham in your starting line up and watch him never get a target and put up a donut.
