Seahawks | Jimmy Graham ready for season's start?

Thu, 26 May 2016 14:59:34 -0700

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) might be ready to play in Week 1 of the regular season, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Graham continues to recover from a torn patellar tendon he suffered last season.

Fantasy Tip: Graham's glory days appear to be over, but he still has some gas left in the tank. That being said, an ideally more concerted effort with the running game and Graham's injury push him into the low-end TE1 to high-end TE2 conversation this year.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham making progress

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 19:16:37 -0700

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) continues to recover from a torn patellar tendon suffered a game in late November. He has been taking part in the initial stages of the team's official offseason program with two weeks of strength and condition and physical rehabilitation. Head coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday, April 26, that everything is going well. The general team feeling is that Graham will be ready for the season.

Fantasy Tip: Graham is a risky fantasy play heading into 2016. He didn't put up the same kind of numbers we saw from him in New Orleans, and now he is coming off of a major injury. Perhaps for the first time in his career he isn't a surefire Top 5 option at the tight end position on draft day for fantasy owners.

Seahawks | Thomas Rawls, Jimmy Graham on track

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 10:17:24 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) and TE Jimmy Graham (knee) are expected to be ready for Week 1, according to general manager John Schneider. Schneider added that both players are at similar stages in their rehabs, and he couldn't identify one as being further along. He said he didn't know if either would play in the preseason. "Right now, their rehab's going well," Schneider said. "We're trying to get them ready for the season. We're not trying to get them ready to play Minnesota in the preseason."

Fantasy Tip: Take this with a grain of salt, especially in Graham's case. A torn patellar tendon is one of the most catastrophic injuries to skill positions, and there aren't a lot of success stories. He's a very risky tight end in the midrange. Rawls could be good to go, and with Marshawn Lynch retiring, he's a solid RB2 in fantasy.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham recovering well

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 19:16:22 -0700

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) continues to do well in his recovery, and head coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday, March 22, that the team is excited to get him back. "We're anticipating that he'll come back and again we hope to have him by the start of the season," Carroll said.

Fantasy Tip: Graham's production was erratic in his first season in Seattle, and it took a while for him to post numbers and fantasy production up to his previous standards. After a major injury he will be a risky fantasy play in 2016, but he also could be one to easily exceed his average draft position if he bounces back and plays to his potential.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham should be ready

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 12:36:56 -0800

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham's (knee) rehabilitation is going well and he is expected to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Graham was having a disappointing first season with the Seahawks before missing the rest of the season with a knee injury. One would expect Graham to better his 2015 numbers, as long as he can stay healthy, and he should be drafted as a starting tight end again.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham progressing

Wed, 24 Feb 2016 13:35:51 -0800

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) is progressing well in his recovery from a torn right patellar tendon, according to general manager John Schneider. Schneider said it's too soon to tell when Graham will be able to return from the injury, however.

Fantasy Tip: There was a good deal of fuss made about Graham's lack of usage last season. He had a good game here and there but nothing like the consistent output he had with the New Orleans Saints. The Seahawks may throw more with Marshawn Lynch gone, as they did later last season when he was injured, which would benefit Graham. He's still somewhat of a risky proposition right now, but should still be considered a TE1.

Panthers | Greg Olsen excels on deep passes

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 10:25:55 -0800

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen has 22 receptions on passes thrown between 15 and 30 yards downfield in 2015 (including playoffs), the most since New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski and former New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham each had 21 in 2011.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski was 3-for-3 on such throws in the AFC Championship Game against the Denver Broncos, so Olsen could be primed for a huge day in Super Bowl 50, especially since the Broncos' safeties (T.J. Ward and Darian Stewart) are both battling lower-body injuries. Olsen could easily be the most productive skill-position player on either side on Super Sunday.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham back in Seattle

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 11:41:17 -0800

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) will return to the Seahawks in 2016, according to Seahawks general manager John Schneider.

Fantasy Tip: Graham suffered a scary torn patellar tendon that robs players of their burst, and it might be one of the worst injuries a pass receiver can have. He'll be a midrange TE1 option based on name value, but the risk you'll inherit drafting him is large.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch, Jimmy Graham rehabbing

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 16:31:37 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (hernia) and TE Jimmy Graham (knee) were both at team headquarters this week rehabbing following their surgeries. Lynch is out again in Week 14 against the Baltimore Ravens, while Graham's season is over. Head coach Pete Carroll said it's too soon to put a timetable on Lynch's return. Carroll said the team expects Graham to be back for the start of next season.

Fantasy Tip: Graham is facing a lengthy rehab from a very serious and debilitating knee injury. He may never again be the same dynamic player he has been, so practice extreme caution when selecting him in 2016 drafts. Lynch ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) may be able to play again before the end of the regular season, but the Seahawks certainly aren't rushing him.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham likely to be ready for 2016

Thu, 03 Dec 2015 09:53:46 -0800

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) is expected to be ready for the 2016 season after surgery to repair a torn patellar tendon. "After the surgery, it typically takes between six and eight weeks for the tendon to heal," an official from the Orthopaedic Trauma Center at the University of California-San Francisco and San Francisco General Hospital said. "During that time, the knee is kept straight in a brace for a majority of the time to allow the repair to heal without stretching out. Once the surgeon has determined that the repair is healed, physical therapy begins in order to regain motion of the knee and strength in the quadriceps."

Fantasy Tip: Graham will be a boom or bust option in 2016. He could either slide in your draft, or he could retain name value for his immense talent. His injury is one of the most difficult to return from as it can rob you of your burst. So he's likely to be a very "buyer beware" option in drafts.
