Fantasy owners were devastated Sunday when star Saints tight end Jimmy Graham had no catches during a 35-32 victory against the Steelers. In fact, Graham wasn’t even targeted in the win, which was highly unusual since he leads New Orleans with 87 targets.
While Fantasy owners were not happy with Graham’s production, Graham himself seemed fine with what transpired Sunday.
“For me, it’s all about the W’s. I don’t care if it’s zero catches, 10 catches or 20, as long as we win,” Graham said, per ESPN.
Graham credited Steelers safeties Troy Polamalu and Will Allen for his catchless day, saying they undercut most of his routes, on some plays breaking before he did.
“Usually, they wait ’til I break. But (Polamalu’s) a smart player,” Graham said. “And (Allen), he’s a smart player too, he did it once or twice. I can tell that they’re watching a lot of film and looking at tendencies and looking at formations and splits.
“But we’ll watch film and we’ll look at ways that we can expose that.”
