Tight End Rank: #2All Players: #28
Graham had a down season for his standards but still finished second overall in fantasy scoring for tight ends. He didn't have a 100-yard game all year but had 85 receptions and 10 touchdowns. The good news is Graham made it through the season pretty healthy, which is a concern for Graham at this stage of his career. The bad news is his yardage total was his lowest since his rookie season. His down year led to the Saints shipping him out of town this offseason, getting rid of his high salary. Graham is just 28 years old and would seem to have plenty left in the tank despite being nicked up some in recent years. He goes to a less explosive Seahawks' offense but should be the No. 1 target in the passing game, getting plenty of targets on a weekly basis. Graham is the complete package at tight end. He is a big target with top speed and the ability to make the tough catch. He is an improving blocker but isn't used much in that role. Graham is a top athlete that plays more like a No. 1 receiver than tight end.
Graham's move to Seattle could hurt his overall numbers a little but don't expect a big downturn in production. He remains an elite No. 1 fantasy tight end. He is No. 2 in our tight end rankings. Expect around 90 receptions for 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns.

comments about Jimmy Graham


Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham's role with his new team is quite different than it was with the New Orleans Saints. He lined up as a traditional in-line tight end 37.1% of the time with New Orleans and that number has gone way up in Seattle to 65.1%. Graham was in the slot a whopping 42% of the time with the Saints but has done so just 20.7% of the time in three games with the Seahawks. Graham is being asked to block 38.3% of the time in Seattle as opposed to only 28% of the time in the Big Easy. Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is targeting Graham just 18.9% of the time when he runs pass routes. In New Orleans, he was targeted by QB Drew Brees 26.3% of the time on such routes.

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham admitted that he's still adjusting to his role in Seattle's offense and said he isn't disappointed about his lack of involvement after two weeks. He was targeted just twice in the Week 2 loss to the Green Bay Packers. 'This team runs the ball. Simple as that. We're not slinging the ball 60 times a game. And if we are, then that means we're in trouble. I'm just going to keep doing what's asked of me,' Graham said. Graham blocked 28% of the time in New Orleans and is blocking 44% of the time after two games in Seattle. He admitted that earning QB Russell Wilson's trust in the passing game could take time.

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham is upset with his role with the Seahawks and has complained to teammates, according to sources. Graham is being used to block and serve as a decoy and only had two targets in Week 2.
Fantasy Impact: You can't blame Graham for being upset with his current role. It would make sense for the Seahawks to start getting him more targets.

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham has been targeted only 10 times over the first two games of the season, but head coach Pete Carroll said he wants Graham to receive more targets in the passing game. Graham does have seven catches for 62 yards and one touchdown in the two games. Graham received two targets in the team's Week 2 game, which was only the third time since 2011 he saw two targets or fewer in a game.
Fantasy Impact: You have to think the Seahawks will try to get Graham more involved going forward. The offense could use a spark.

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham posted just one reception for 11 yards in the Week 2 loss against the Green Bay Packers. He was targeted just twice.
Fantasy Impact: Graham is blocking more than he is used to and can't be happy about this. He needs to get more work in this offense.

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.'

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.'

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.'
