Saints TE phenom Jimmy Graham is active tonight vs. the Broncos, it would make sense to feed him – and RB Darren Sproles – the ball and here’s an interesting stat: The Saints are 4-0 when Jimmy Graham receives 8 or more passes from QB Drew Brees.
Through Darren Sproles’ 24 games as a Saint, he has scored in 13 of the 22 games – including postseason – in which he has 7 or more offensive touches. He didn’t score in either game where he had 6 or fewer offensive touches.
Yet, 18 is the high for Sproles offensive touches with the Saints, once in the regular season and once in the postseason. They gave him the ball 16 times once in the regular season. They put it in his hands offensively 14 times once in the postseason, 13 times twice in the regular season.
