Summary

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.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
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.

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.'

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.'

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham grows rapport with QB 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.'

Seattle Seahawks C Max Unger was traded to New Orleans Saints along with a first-round pick in exchange TE Jimmy Graham and a fourth-round pick.
Fantasy Impact: This is a huge shock. Graham could see a little dip in production with his new team but don't expect a huge drop off. The Seahawks will look his way often in the passing game.
