Summary

Tight End Rank: #1All Players: #18
Graham didn't have quite the huge season as his previous year but still played well as a top option in the Saints passing game. Graham finished just short of 1,000 yards and had 85 receptions with nine touchdowns. He had two 100-yard games and at least four receptions in 14 of 15 games. Needless to say, he was a consistent threat in the offense. Over the past two seasons, Graham averages 92 receptions for 1,146 yards and 10 touchdowns per season. Graham is the complete package at tight end. He is a big target with top speed and the ability to make the tough catch. His route running improved a bunch the last few seasons but can still get even better because he remains relatively new to the position. He also 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.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
Graham is our No. 1 rated tight end. He is a difference maker at tight end. He is worth an early-round pick come draft day. He is consistent and productive in a high-powered offense. We look for him to get back to 1,000 yards this year and score double-digit touchdowns with around 90 receptions. Graham is the real deal at tight end.

New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson expressed confidence that his team will be able to re-sign TE Jimmy Graham to a long-term extension this offseason. 'He's a hell of a good player, but he's also a good person,' Benson said Tuesday, March 25. 'I'm confident we'll work out something. We just have a little bit of time to do it, that's all.'

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees called TE Jimmy Graham a 'hybrid' when asked if he saw Graham as a tight end or a receiver. Graham could file a grievance with the league after he was franchise tagged by the team as a tight end rather than a wide receiver. 'He plays a different position than anybody in the league,' Brees said. 'So he'll be cutting edge with whatever he gets (paid). And everybody will try to compare themselves to him five years from now.'
New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham is not expected to report to the team until his contract situation is resolved.
Fantasy Impact: This isn't a surprise. We could be in store for a lengthy holdout.
