Summary

Tight End Rank: #2All Players: #28
Graham had one of the best seasons every for a tight end last year. He had more than 1,200 yards and scored 16 touchdowns. He also had 86 receptions, getting at least five receptions 10 of 16 games. Graham is the top target in the Saints high-flying passing attack. Graham has 1,000-yard seasons two of the last three. 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 once again. He is a difference maker at tight end. He is worth a first-round pick come draft day. He is consistent and productive in a high-powered offense. We wouldn't be surprised if he improved on his reception and yardage totals from last season. He can get 90 receptions for 1,300 yards and 13 touchdowns.

Notes

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.

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.

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.

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.'

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%.'

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham had three drops Sunday, Dec. 7, and finished with three catches for 25 yards.
Fantasy Impact: Graham is in a bit of a funk, which comes at a really bad time for fantasy teams.

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 Impact: It isn't showing in his play, though. He is still producing despite the injury.

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 Impact: This was a shock. We wouldn't expect another game like this from Graham any time soon.

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.
