|A TE1 with WR1 production, Jimmy Graham will carry the torch as the top fantasy TE entering the year. In only his fourth year as a starter, Graham will try to become even more consistent after seeing his production slip over the course of the 2013 season following a hot start. As defenses continually evolve to handle the likes of Graham, there is a chance they succeed as Seattle did during last year's divisional playoff game in limiting Graham to a single catch on six targets. Fantasy owners considering the stud TE in the first round will no doubt place their confidence in position dominance. Yet that gap may not be as large as it appears given a modest regression in the touchdown column and increased yardage totals from fellow tight ends Jordan Cameron and Julius Thomas, among others. Regardless of how you feel on draft day, Graham will likely set the pace for all tight ends once again.
| Pierre Thomas ruled out, Ingram to carry load|
Khiry Robinson listed as questionable

|Charlotte -- New Orleans Saints running back Pierre Thomas, linebacker David Hawthorne and fullback Austin Johnson are out for Thursday's game against the Carolina Panthers. Tight end Jimmy Graham, running back Khiry Robinson, linebacker Kyle Knox and center Jonathan Goodwin are listed as questionable.
FFToday's Take: Saints running back Mark Ingram will get the bulk of the work on rushing downs while Travis Cadet will once again take over some of Pierre Thomas' role in the passing attack. The Panthers have been the fifth worst rush defense (135 rushing yards allowed per game) thus far in 2014 making Ingram a solid fantasy play this week. Meanwhile, Khiry Robinson (forearm) has not practiced all week and is unlikely to play despite being listed as questionable.
