Panthers | Greg Olsen excels on deep passes

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 10:25:55 -0800

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen has 22 receptions on passes thrown between 15 and 30 yards downfield in 2015 (including playoffs), the most since New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski and former New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham each had 21 in 2011.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski was 3-for-3 on such throws in the AFC Championship Game against the Denver Broncos, so Olsen could be primed for a huge day in Super Bowl 50, especially since the Broncos' safeties (T.J. Ward and Darian Stewart) are both battling lower-body injuries. Olsen could easily be the most productive skill-position player on either side on Super Sunday.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham back in Seattle

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 11:41:17 -0800

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) will return to the Seahawks in 2016, according to Seahawks general manager John Schneider.

Fantasy Tip: Graham suffered a scary torn patellar tendon that robs players of their burst, and it might be one of the worst injuries a pass receiver can have. He'll be a midrange TE1 option based on name value, but the risk you'll inherit drafting him is large.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch, Jimmy Graham rehabbing

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 16:31:37 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (hernia) and TE Jimmy Graham (knee) were both at team headquarters this week rehabbing following their surgeries. Lynch is out again in Week 14 against the Baltimore Ravens, while Graham's season is over. Head coach Pete Carroll said it's too soon to put a timetable on Lynch's return. Carroll said the team expects Graham to be back for the start of next season.

Fantasy Tip: Graham is facing a lengthy rehab from a very serious and debilitating knee injury. He may never again be the same dynamic player he has been, so practice extreme caution when selecting him in 2016 drafts. Lynch ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) may be able to play again before the end of the regular season, but the Seahawks certainly aren't rushing him.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham likely to be ready for 2016

Thu, 03 Dec 2015 09:53:46 -0800

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) is expected to be ready for the 2016 season after surgery to repair a torn patellar tendon. "After the surgery, it typically takes between six and eight weeks for the tendon to heal," an official from the Orthopaedic Trauma Center at the University of California-San Francisco and San Francisco General Hospital said. "During that time, the knee is kept straight in a brace for a majority of the time to allow the repair to heal without stretching out. Once the surgeon has determined that the repair is healed, physical therapy begins in order to regain motion of the knee and strength in the quadriceps."

Fantasy Tip: Graham will be a boom or bust option in 2016. He could either slide in your draft, or he could retain name value for his immense talent. His injury is one of the most difficult to return from as it can rob you of your burst. So he's likely to be a very "buyer beware" option in drafts.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham having surgery

Wed, 02 Dec 2015 12:50:26 -0800

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) is undergoing surgery Wednesday, Dec. 2, to repair the torn patellar tendon in his right knee.

Fantasy Tip: Graham is out for the season, and Luke Willson ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) should take over as the Seahawks' top tight end now. There is value to be had with Willson on FantasyScore right now, but the Minnesota Vikings, Willson's Week 13 opponent, have only allowed four touchdowns to tight ends all year.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham placed on IR

Mon, 30 Nov 2015 15:12:38 -0800

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Nov. 30, and DT A.J. Francis was signed from the practice squad to the active roster in a corresponding move. Graham had 48 catches for 605 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games this year for Seattle.

Fantasy Tip: Luke Willson is the primary tight end option for Russell Wilson in the absence of Graham, but he'll be too inconsistent to rely on in fantasy. After his monster game in Week 12, Doug Baldwin deserves to be owned now because he'll be more heavily relied on in the passing game.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham out for the season

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 17:49:50 -0800

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) is out for the season due to a torn patellar tendon suffered in the Week 12 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He needs season-ending surgery.

Fantasy Tip: With Graham down for the count, Luke Willson will be the primary tight end in Seattle again, and Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse and the rest of the receivers will also be called upon to pick up the slack.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham carted off

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 15:47:24 -0800

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (leg) suffered a lower right leg injury in the fourth quarter of the Week 12 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers and he was carted off after having his leg stabilized.

Fantasy Tip: It appeared Graham might have snapped his lower left leg, but that's speculation at this point. It certainly did not look good, and he is likely to be sidelined a while. Luke Willson will likely see more targets from the tight end position in his absence.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham has so-so game

Sun, 22 Nov 2015 21:17:08 -0800

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham posted three receptions for 39 yards in the Week 11 game against the San Francisco 49ers. He was targeted three times.

Fantasy Tip: Graham just hasn't been the dominant force he was in New Orleans, and it's rather inexplicable. He has expressed his unhappiness with how he is being used, and fantasy owners can certainly echo those sentiments.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham could struggle in Week 11

Fri, 20 Nov 2015 21:51:04 -0800

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham faces the San Francisco 49ers in Week 11, and he managed two catches for 31 yards in his first meeting with the 49ers this season.

Fantasy Tip: Graham's ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) production has disappointed all year, and paying up for him at FantasyScore is asking for disappointment.
