Seahawks | Jimmy Graham placed on IR

Mon, 30 Nov 2015 15:12:38 -0800

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Nov. 30, and DT A.J. Francis was signed from the practice squad to the active roster in a corresponding move. Graham had 48 catches for 605 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games this year for Seattle.

Fantasy Tip: Luke Willson is the primary tight end option for Russell Wilson in the absence of Graham, but he'll be too inconsistent to rely on in fantasy. After his monster game in Week 12, Doug Baldwin deserves to be owned now because he'll be more heavily relied on in the passing game.
