Dimke successfully converted two extra point attempts from the trial, 33-yard distance in Friday's preseason game against the Titans. Larry Holder of the New Orleans Times-Picayune still projects, however, that Shayne Graham will prevail over Dimke in their competition for the Saints' kicking duties this season.

Dimke appears to hold an early lead over veteran Shayne Graham in the Saints' kicking competition, The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Previous reports indicate that the Saints hope Graham will separate himself, as the team values the 36-year-old placekicker's experience. Of course, experience didn't stop Graham from missing both of his field-goal attempts in last year's playoff loss to the Seahawks, and it didn't prevent him from wearing out his welcome in Cincinnati with an 0-for-2 showing in a Jan. 2010 playoff loss to the Jets. Graham has kicked in a regular-season game for six different teams since that 2010 playoff loss, as he's good enough to stay in the league but not a desirable starter. In any case, so long as Drew Brees is healthy, the winner of this kicking battle will be a viable fantasy option in nearly any format.
