Saints' Jimmy Graham a healthy scratch for Week 9

Tight end Jimmy Graham will be a healthy inactive for the New Orleans Saints in their Week 9 game against the Chicago Bears.

What It Means:

Graham has been a rotational player for the Saints this year in their tight end-heavy offense, but will take a seat today as the team enters Week 9 with all of Taysom Hill, Juwan Johnson, and Foster Moreau available. His absence should boost the floors of each of those players, with Hill and Johnson having fantasy upside against the Bears.

Hill has been a wildcard for New Orleans this season, leading the team in rushing touchdowns (3) while posting 332 yards from scrimmage as a rusher and receiver. Our model projects him for 7 fantasy points against the Bears' poor defense.
