Seahawks | Jimmy Graham showing chemistry

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 21:47:51 -0700

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham caught three passes from QB Russell Wilson for 39 yards in a preseason game against the Kansas City Chiefs Friday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Graham's numbers are likely to decline in Seattle, but he could still be the best fantasy tight end not named Rob Gronkowski. He should still be considered a high-end TE1 with his new team.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham fitting in

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 15:05:03 -0700

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham will be a better fit in the offense than WR Percy Harvin, according to offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell Thursday, Aug. 13. "I think the cool part about Jimmy is we can just plug him in," said Bevell. "We really don't have to do anything special."

Fantasy Tip: Graham fits the mold of a conventional receiving threat better than Harvin. The Seahawks were forced to create plays in order to get the ball into Harvin's hands, something that will be easier to do with Graham. The former New Orleans Saints tight end is the most dangerous weapon in the Seahawks' passing attack, and he should be the second tight end off draft boards behind only Rob Gronkowski.

Seahawks | More two-tight end sets for Seattle

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 10:09:34 -0700

The Seattle Seahawks appear likely to use more two-tight end formats with TEs Jimmy Graham and Luke Willson on the team this season in offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell's system. TEs Anthony McCoy, Cooper Helfet and Rashaun Allen are also competing for spots. Graham will need to do more blocking for RB Marshawn Lynch than he's done in the past with the New Orleans Saints if the Seahawks go to more two-tight end formations. Injuries and New Orleans system rarely relied on Graham for blocking in the running game. "I know 3rd-and-10, 3rd-and-12, that's when I'm going to have to make my money," Graham said, "and that's when I'm going to have to be special for this team."

Fantasy Tip: It seems likely that Graham's production for fantasy owners will take a dip this year with Seattle. However, he can still be a TE1 for his owners if he's used often in third-and-long situations and in the red zone.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham preparing to block more

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 06:25:01 -0700

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham said the priority of blocking is on par with making receptions in his new offense. "It's very important for me to be a part of that here because that's about 75 percent of the offense here and if you have a back like (Marshawn Lynch), you want to be in there on those explosive runs and you want to be part of that," Graham said. "Third-and-10 is when I'm going to make my money, and that's when I'm going to have to be special for this team."

Fantasy Tip: Graham's numbers are expected to fall short of the astronomical years he had in New Orleans. However, he's still in the elite tier at the position and should continue to be a beast in the red zone. He probably shouldn't be taken in the first round this year, though.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham to be used all over

Tue, 14 Jul 2015 09:27:26 -0700

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham will be used all over the field with Seattle like he was in New Orleans. "Yeah, we do that with a lot of our guys. We like to formation and move guys around for different reasons, and Jimmy will be definitely in that mix," offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said. "It's just another great playmaker. He can stretch the field, catch the ball, big target in the red zone, which will be huge for us. That may be one of the biggest things, just the size we have down there when things start to get tight."

Fantasy Tip: Graham and Rob Gronkowski are in a tier by themselves at the position. Graham might lose some luster because Seattle has been so driven on power running, and he may not have as many targets as he did in New Orleans. However, he's still worth consideration around the snake area of the first and second rounds.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham builds rapport with QB

Mon, 08 Jun 2015 06:43:12 -0700

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham said he has an accelerated learning curve with QB Russell Wilson. "Honestly me and Russ have been on kind of this accelerated learning curve," Graham said. "He just gets it up and gives you an opportunity to be great. We'll be keep working on that, and we'll be just fine come the season, because that's a big thing. That's all about the connection, that's all about knowing what each other is going to do and what each other likes."

Fantasy Tip: Graham will probably not catch as many balls in Seattle because of the toned-down offense in contrast to New Orleans. However, he'll still be a monster in the red zone. Graham is one of the best two tight ends but probably shouldn't be taken in the first round this year.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham making impact

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 18:23:58 -0700

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham has been "unstoppable" during organized team activities, according to Rob Rang of Scout.com. The Seahawks have already been drawing up plays to capitalize on Graham's talents.

Fantasy Tip: Graham is likely to see a reduction from the 138 targets he has averaged per season over the last four years, but he represents a greatly needed red zone threat in the Seattle offense. Graham should still be considered the best tight end not named Rob Gronkowski.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson, Jimmy Graham absent

Tue, 26 May 2015 09:58:27 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and TE Jimmy Graham were not at the first day of the team's organized team activities Tuesday, May 26, in order to attend the funeral of Graham's personal manager in Florida. QBs B.J. Daniels and R.J. Archer are the only quarterbacks at the OTAs with Wilson gone, and neither have taken a snap in an NFL game.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham to work on blocking

Sun, 03 May 2015 06:47:41 -0700

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham is committed to learning to block since he was traded to the Seahawks, according to offensive line coach Tom Cable.

Fantasy Tip: Graham will still be one of the team's top receiving threats, but he would be on the field more often if he becomes a better blocker. Graham should be one of the first tight ends selected in fantasy drafts next season.

Dolphins | Jimmy Graham almost went to Miami

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 12:02:13 -0700

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham was almost a Miami Dolphin as the Dolphins finished second to the Seahawks in an attempt to trade for the tight end.

Fantasy Tip: The Dolphins ended up with Jordan Cameron after failing to sign Graham. Cameron should be targeted frequently in Miami as the Dolphins have lost three receivers in Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson this offseason.

Seahawks | Seattle acquires Jimmy Graham

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 12:46:58 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham was traded to the Seattle Seahawks along with a fourth-round pick in exchange for C Max Unger and a first-round pick.

Fantasy Tip: Grahame will still be an elite pass-catching tight end in the Seattle offense in 2015. He should once again be near the top of your draft board at the tight-end position this fall.

Saints | NO open to shopping Jimmy Graham

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 12:13:54 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham is part of a group of players the team is shopping around to other teams.

Fantasy Tip: If Graham were to be traded, and that is still a very big if at the moment, he would still be a productive fantasy player. His value could be affected by the quarterback situation of a new team, but he would still be a TE1 under almost any circumstance.

Saints | Jimmy Graham ruling out surgery?

Mon, 26 Jan 2015 19:18:15 -0800

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) caught three passes for 30 yards and two scores in the Pro Bowl Sunday, Jan. 25, and when asked if his performance would rule out surgery, he said, "It should, which is really exciting."

Fantasy Tip: Graham's comments aren't a guarantee that he will avoid going under the knife, but it is certainly a good sign. If healthy, he is the second-best option at the tight end spot for fantasy owners.

Saints | Jimmy Graham might avoid surgery

Fri, 23 Jan 2015 07:25:51 -0800

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) said he'll rehabilitate his shoulder injury after the Pro Bowl, but he hasn't made a final decision on surgery. "It's something we talked about and is something that's still being debated," Graham said. "This is kind of a trial to see where I'm at. I've had three weeks off and I've finally had some time to heal. It feels great, and I'm going to continue to do my rehab and get back to 100%."

Fantasy Tip: Graham will likely be one of the top two tight ends to target again in traditional drafts next season if intrusive surgery isn't required.

Mon, 08 Dec 2014 07:41:16 -0800

Saints | Jimmy Graham bothered by shoulder

Fri, 05 Dec 2014 13:04:50 -0800

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) has still very much been bothered by a shoulder injury that he suffered earlier this year, and he said he's still managing pain "every day" that has affected his blocking abilities. "At times this year the shoulder has really held me back sometimes," Graham said. "Other times I'm able to fight through the pain. I just got to man up and keep doing it."

Fantasy Tip: Graham's zero-catch, zero-target day in Week 13 had more to do with the Pittsburgh Steelers' game plan against him, but his injury shouldn't completely be ignored. Moving to Week 14, we expect Graham to make much more noise against the Carolina Panthers at FantasyScore for $7,900.

Saints | Zero targets for Jimmy Graham

Sun, 30 Nov 2014 18:26:55 -0800

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham did not have any receptions in Week 13 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and he was not even targeted once. Graham targeted the two safeties for Pittsburgh, FS Will Allen and SS Troy Polamalu, for breaking his crossing routes. "Usually (defenders) wait until I break," Graham said Sunday, Nov. 30. "(Polamalu and Allen) are smart players. I can tell that they're watching a lot of film and looking at tendencies and formations and splits."

Fantasy Tip: It was a tough pill to swallow for fantasy owners in weekly leagues, as Week 13 is the final week of the fantasy regular season in most standard formats. And Graham was an expensive miss for those in FantasyScore leagues, and no one would have predicted zero targets for Graham.

Saints | Jimmy Graham poses matchup problem

Fri, 14 Nov 2014 09:32:17 -0800

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham will likely be covered by Cincinnati Bengals LB Emmanuel Lamur in Week 11. Lamur makes the most sense to cover Graham because of his combination of athletic ability and size (6-4, 240 pounds). However, Lamur has struggled against tight ends this year; According to ESPN Stats & Information, four tight ends caught a combined 28 passes for 339 yards, three touchdowns and 18 first downs with Lamur on the field. Lamur has faced the likes of Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta, Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski and Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen this year.

Fantasy Tip: Graham is unsurprisingly one of the most expensive tight end options at FantasyScore ($7,900), but he should put up good numbers against Lamur and the Bengals reeling defense. Consider him for your lineups.

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 7, and is listed as probable for Week 10.

Saints | Jimmy Graham a full participant

Thu, 06 Nov 2014 18:32:35 -0800

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Graham ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) is on track to play in Week 10, and he should be one of the top options at the position at FantasyScore with the Saints playing at home against a San Francisco defense with a banged up group of linebackers.

Wed, 05 Nov 2014 17:27:01 -0800

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) was listed as a full participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Graham should be fine for Week 10 against the San Francisco 49ers barring any setbacks, but FantasyScore owners will want to wait to finalize their lineups until Friday. If he is probable, spend the $7,900 (or 15.8 percent of the cap) on Graham.

Saints | Jimmy Graham with another solid game

Fri, 31 Oct 2014 10:33:28 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham, who had a team-high seven catches for 83 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 9 win Thursday, Oct. 30, said a vicious hit earlier in the game inspired him to be more aggressive and physical against the Carolina Panthers. "I just need to play more emotional," said Graham. "I think early I wasn't playing emotional enough -- at least for me. I think I need to bring it that way on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and in practice. And when I do that, I think it adds something not only to my game, but it helps spur our offense."

Fantasy Tip: Graham appears back to full health after putting up touchdowns in his last two games. It's also not a coincidence that the Saints offense has been back in a groove with Graham more involved. You should feel comfortable paying for Graham in daily fantasy leagues moving forward.

Fantasy Tip: Fortunately, it appears that this was a false alarm and Graham's shoulder is fine. He caught a touchdown just before halftime and appears no worse for wear following the hit.

Sat, 18 Oct 2014 14:34:31 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) said he'd be open to being limited only to red zone situations in Week 7, when asked by a reporter.

Fantasy Tip: Graham ($7,900; 15.8%) is a game-time decision against the Detroit Lions and is a pricey gamble on FantasyScore. The Saints released TE Tom Crabtree Saturday, Oct. 18, but there's no indication if that's a good sign for Graham's prospects this week or a formality.

Saints | Jimmy Graham to be game-time decision

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 13:16:45 -0700

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) said he won't know until just before kickoff Sunday, Oct. 19, if he'll play in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions. "I think (coach) Sean (Payton) might try to see how I'm doing on Sunday and maybe work me before the game to see where I'm at," Graham, who was limited and listed as questionable for Sunday, said. "As of right now I don't know." Head coach Sean Payton would not discuss whether Graham could be limited if he plays Sunday. TEs Benjamin Watson and Josh Hill will likely see an increase in snaps if Graham doesn't play.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Graham plays, he's likely to be less than 100 percent, which would make paying $7,900 (15.8% of cap) a pretty big risk at FantasyScore. Hill is the better fantasy bet if Graham doesn't play, and he's very cheap if you're going that route at tight end.

Fantasy Tip: Graham would certainly give a boost to QB Drew Brees and Co. It would be hard to bench him even if he is limited against the Detroit Lions. He'll still cost the most of any tight end on FantasyScore at $7,900.
