The New Orleans Saints are on a bye in Week 6. When they return to the field tight end Jimmy Graham is not expected to join them.

Graham will need another 2-3 weeks to recover from a shoulder injury according to multiple reports including NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

The Saints have contests against Detroit and Green Bay after their bye. The absence of Graham would leave the likes of Ben Watson, Josh Hill, and Tom Crabtree filling in at tight end.

Fantasy Impact: There is no impact for this week. Graham an company are on a bye. Given the conditions it may be best to hold him for now in case something changes. Those pressed with a need for roster spaces will have to make a tough decision.
