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.

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.
