Jimmy Graham faces a Tampa Bay team he destroyed near the beginning of the season.
Jimmy Graham, the game’s top tight end, will be trying to help the Saints keep pace for an NFC South title Sunday against a Tampa Bay team he destroyed near the beginning of the season. His 10 catches for 179 yards on 16 targets were all season highs in Week 2. He also scored a TD against the Buccaneers, who have held TEs to six scores this season.
Vernon Davis had scored a touchdown in five straight games entering Monday night, and only been held off the scoreboard in three games. He is killing it in TD-only leagues and PPR leagues, and gets an Arizona team had eight catches, 180 yards and two scores on 11 targets — all season highs — in their Week 6 meeting.
Green Bay’s Andrew Quarless should be a decent sleeper against a Chicago team that has allowed a TD to the position in three of the last five games, and 5.6 catches per game to tight ends. Quarless had a dud last week, but had back-to-back 15.6-point games the two weeks prior.
