News: Graham and Derek Dimke were both waived by the Saints on Saturday, the team's official site reports. Impact: As a result, the Saints do not currently roster a kicker, though in the wake of roster cut-downs there are plenty of options for the team to consider for the assignment.(RotoWire, )

News: Graham did not attempt a kick in Thursday's preseason finale against Baltimore, however, his competition for the starting kicker position, Derek Dimke, handled all the kickoff duties and converted a 49- and 23-yard field goal. Impact: The writing appears to be on the wall that it will be the unproven Dimke, not the veteran Graham, who will handle kicking duties for the Saints to start the year. Assuming Graham is cut this weekend when rosters are required to be trimmed to 53 players, he will need to catch on with another team to have any fantasy relevance.(RotoWire, )

News: Graham was perfect on two traditional extra points, as well a 24-yard and 39-yard field goal in Saturday's preseason game against the Colts. In Larry Holder's most-recent 53-man roster projection, however, Derek Dimke is projected to prevail in the kicking competition with Graham. Dimke successfully converted a 45-yard attempt against the Colts Impact: Though just one man's prediction, Holder's previous projections all had Graham starting the season as the Saints' kicker, but he now anticipates Dimke handling kicking duties for the team, after watching Graham miss another kick in practice, while Dimke drained his attempts. Rolling with the unproven, but strong-legged Dimke would be a risk for the Saints given their championship aspirations, but, according to Holder, there's a reason why Graham has kicked all over the league the past few years. If Holder's prediction is incorrect and Graham does prevail in the competition, Graham should see plenty of opportunities backed by the Saints' high-powered attack.(RotoWire, )

News: Graham successfully converted his lone extra point attempt from the trial, 33-yard distance and he also nailed a 34-yard field goal in Friday's preseason game against the Titans. Larry Holder of the New Orleans Times-Picayune still projects Graham to prevail in the competition with Derek Dimke for the Saints' kicking duties this season. Impact: After Graham started last week's game in St. Louis, he ceded the start to Dimke in Friday's exhibition. Graham clanged one of his longer extra point tries off the upright last week, so it was critical he was perfect on Friday. With Dimke also perfect on two extra point attempts of his own (he did not try a field goal), the competition will likely continue into next week.(RotoWire, )
