Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

The Bears placed Jimmy Graham on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Graham unfortunately won't be able to play against the Buccaneers on Sunday, but he should have a good shot to return in Week 8. Hopefully Graham is feeling OK and can rejoin his teammates soon.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham (hip) is officially active for Week 15.

Graham was listed as questionable on Friday, but he probably would have been listed as “probable” if the NFL still offered the designation. Cole Kmet is the preferred option in fantasy lineups against the Vikings, but Graham is still a major red-zone threat.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham (hip) is officially questionable for Week 15.

We'd think Graham will play through the hip issue, but if he's out rookie tight end Cole Kmet would be even more interesting as an option in fantasy lineups this week. Graham's status will be official by 11:30 AM ET on Sunday.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

The Bears are signing Jimmy Graham, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

It's reportedly a two-year, $16 million for Graham, who goes over from Green Bay to a division rival in Chicago. The veteran tight end seems to be a player that tries to play with a bit of a chip on his shoulder, so now he'll get to play the Packers twice per year in 2020 and 2021. Graham will look to bring stability to the tight end position for the Bears, and he'll have red-zone upside in particular in Matt Nagy's offense.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

The Packers officially released Jimmy Graham.

This was expected to happen today, and now it's official. The veteran tight end should find a new team quickly (barring any issues with the coronavirus impacting potential team visits). Meanwhile, Green Bay is expected to pursue Austin Hooper in free agency, though they also have 2019 third-round pick Jace Sternberger in the mix at tight end.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham and the Packers are expected to part ways, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Graham has a sizable cap hit for 2020, so this is not at all surprising. The veteran tight end is 33 years old, but he should not have much trouble drawing interest on the open market. Graham had just five touchdowns in two seasons with the Packers, as he and Aaron Rodgers couldn't quite click consistently. Green Bay is reportedly expected to pursue Falcons tight end Austin Hooper in free agency.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham is expected to remain in Green Bay for 2019, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Graham is due a $5 million bonus on March 15, and Rapoport says the team is expected to pay it and keep him on the roster next season. Obviously, March 15 is the date to watch, as there's almost no way the Packers would cut Graham after paying him that big bonus. Graham had a disappointing 2018 season, but perhaps he'll be more comfortable in Year 2 with Aaron Rodgers and company if he does indeed remain on the Packers. The six-foot-seven veteran tight end still has double-digit touchdown and TE1 upside given his red-zone proficiency.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham catches three passes in Week 17.

Graham gained 21 yards on his three receptions against the Lions. The veteran tight end's first season in Green Bay ends with 55 receptions for 636 yards and two touchdowns, as the big disappointment came down in the red zone, where he and Aaron Rodgers failed to convert many scoring opportunities. Graham remains under contract with the Packers for 2019, but there's a chance the team decides to move on.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham catches three passes for 34 yards in Week 16.

Graham hasn't found the end zone since Week 9 against the Patriots, so he remains just a low-end TE1 option to conclude the season next week against the Lions. The veteran tight end had 76 yards against the Lions in his first matchup with them this season.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham catches three passes against the Bears.

Graham gained 32 yards on his three receptions in the Packers' Week 15 loss. He was targeted in the red zone on a throw at the front of the end zone, but it was slightly behind him and deflected by rookie linebacker Roquan Smith for an interception. Things just haven't clicked the way they were expected to between Aaron Rodgers and Graham this season, but the big tight end will look to find the end zone in fantasy finals next week against the Jets.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham catches two passes against the Falcons.

Graham gained 13 yards on his two receptions in the Packers' Week 14 victory. The veteran tight end has been held under 15 yards in three of the past five games, so he's difficult to trust next week against a Bears team that held him to two receptions for eight yards back in Week 1.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham catches eight passes in Week 13.

Graham gained 50 yards on his eight receptions (11 targets) versus the Cardinals, as he mostly worked as an underneath target and did not have a reception over ten yards in the game. Graham's thumb doesn't appear to be limiting him much, so the veteran tight end remains in the TE1 mix for Week 14.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham catches two passes in Packers’ loss.

Graham gained 34 yards on his two Week 12 receptions. He’s dealing with a broken thumb and didn’t appear to play as much as usual—particularly early in the game—but he seemed to catch the ball fine. Graham has some downside while dealing with the injury, but he’s in the TE1 mix for Week 13 versus Arizona.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham (thumb) is officially active for Week 12.

Graham was listed as questionable entering tonight, but he's been expected to play through his broken thumb. Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Graham has looked good catching the ball in practice, but there's still some risk inserting him into fantasy lineups if he struggles at less than 100%.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham (thumbs) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Vikings.

Graham is going to attempt to play through his broken thumb, but there's no guarantee he will be active, and even if he is, it'll probably be in a very limited capacity. The veteran probably remains in the top-15 conversation at a shallow position, but he should no longer be viewed as a weekly TE1.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham (thumb) plans to play through his injury, head coach Mike McCarthy has announced.

Graham broke his thumb in last week's loss to the Seahawks, so playing through it would certainly earn the veteran a bunch of respect in the locker room for the 4-5-1 Packers. That said, Graham was already struggling to put up big-time numbers at full health, and the injury obviously downgrades him as a TE1 option. If nothing else, Graham will be an excellent decoy for Green Bay, but fantasy owners might want to scoop someone off the waiver wire if there's a decent option available.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham suffered a broken thumb in Thursday night's loss to the Seahawks, according to Ian Rapoport.

It was thought to be a serious issue considering Graham didn't return in a big game against his former team, and Rapoport says the team is trying to determine how much time he will miss. The 4-5-1 Packers will now have to really rely on the young receiving corps behind Davante Adams, but hopefully Randall Cobb (hamstring) can return for Week 12, and they should also continue featuring Aaron Jones. Graham should be held onto if possible until the timeline becomes clearer.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham (thumb) is out for the rest of tonight's game.

The fourth quarter just started, and Graham hasn't been in the game since before the two-minute warning in the first half. This is unfortunate for the veteran tight end facing one of his former teams, but now we just have to hope this thumb injury doesn't keep him out longer than tonight. Graham's night ends with one reception for 13 yards.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham (thumb) is officially questionable to return against the Seahawks.

Graham ran into the locker room toward the end of the first half after having an issue with his thumb. He's officially been called questionable and surprisingly isn't out there to start the second half, so this thumb injury looks like it's something that might prevent him from re-entering tonight's game. We'll update you as more information becomes available.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham catches one pass in Week 10.

Graham gained 14 yards on his lone reception against the Dolphins. Graham next faces is former Seahawks team on Thursday night football, and he should be a decent bet for a score against a team that just gave up two tight-end touchdowns to the Rams.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham scores in loss to the Patriots.

Graham caught four passes (on six targets) for 55 yards, including a 15-yard touchdown in the second half. It was just the second trip to the end zone for Graham as a Packer, and he's now on pace for a 64/850/4 line at the season's midway point. Look for the 31-year-old to get a streak going when the Dolphins come to town next Sunday. Consider him a solid TE1.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham catches one pass in Week 8.

Graham's lone reception went for 21 yards on a catch early in the game that was initially ruled a touchdown, but it was overturned after it was deemed that the veteran tight end was down inside the one-yard line. Graham was quiet for the rest of the game, and he'll look to have a bigger performance against the Patriots next Sunday night.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham goes over 100 yards in win over the 49ers.

Graham caught five-of-nine targets for 104 yards, including a couple key chunk gains in a comeback victory. It's clear that Aaron Rodgers and his new tight end still aren't always on the same page, but overall, Graham has been a very good addition despite one touchdown grab through six games. The 31-year-old gets a tremendous matchup against the Rams when Green Bay returns from their Week 7 bye, so consider him a top-five play for a potential shootout.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham gets 11 targets against the Lions.

Graham caught six passes for 76 yards in the Week 5 loss, but he dropped a would-be touchdown in the game. The veteran tight end will look to put the drop behind him and have a big game against the Niners in Week 6.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham scores against the Bills.

Graham caught a short pass in the flat for his first touchdown as a Packer, and he did a Lambeau Leap after the score. Overall, Graham had three receptions for 21 yards and a touchdown in the Week 4 win. Graham is on pace for 64 receptions, 676 yards, and four touchdowns through four games, but we expect those touchdown numbers in particular to make a jump.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham (knee) is officially active for Week 4.

Graham’s knee injury limited him in practice this week, but it’s probably more maintenance than anything for the veteran tight end. You can keep Graham locked into fantasy lineups as a solid TE1 option.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Week 4.

After missing Wednesday's practice, Graham was able to practice on a limited basis yesterday and today. There's optimism around this status, and we expect he'll be ready to go against the Bills, but be sure to check back in Sunday morning before locking in your Week 4 fantasy lineup.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham (knee) will be limited in practice today.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy called yesterday's missed practice maintenance, so it doesn't sound like there's much concern about his Week 4 status. We'll update you with Graham's official game status when it's released tomorrow.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham (knee) did not practice today.

Its only Wednesday, but it’s not a great start to the week for the veteran tight end. We’ll update you with Graham’s practice status tomorrow when it’s released.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham, Packers held in check against the Redskins.

Graham caught five passes for 45 yards in the 31-17 loss. Green Bay's big-ticket free agent acquisition had a 13-yard reception that set up a two-yard score for Davante Adams, but Graham has now been held out of the end zone for all three games to start the season. The Packers should be able to bounce back at home next Sunday against the Bills, and there's so reason to bail on Graham as a midrange TE1 option.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham breaks out in Week 2 tie against the Vikings.

After being held to eight yards in his team debut, Graham broke out with six receptions for 95 yards, as Minnesota was once again vulnerable on intermediate passes to tight ends (they allowed 90 yards to George Kittle in the opener). Graham will look to find the end zone for the first time as a Packer next Sunday against the Redskins, and he will probably be a top-five play.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham has a quiet night in Packers debut.

Graham caught just two passes for eight yards, and he only totaled four targets in the win. Of course, anyone who watched the game saw that Aaron Rodgers was playing at less than 100% after returning from what looked to be a serious knee injury, and a less-mobile Rodgers could be bad news for Graham's season outlook, as the two won't be as likely to connect on broken plays in scoring territory. The former All-Pro is shaping up as a low-end TE1 for next week's matchup with Minnesota.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham has officially signed with the Packers.

With the start of the new league year, the former Saints and Seahawks tight end was able to sign the contract with Green Bay. Graham has certainly found himself with great quarterbacks, as he’ll now catch passes with Aaron Rodgers after playing with Super Bowl winners Drew Brees and Russell Wilson in his first two stops. Clearly, Graham has double-digit touchdown upside with the Packers, and he’ll likely be deployed in a similar way around the goal line as he was last season with the Seahawks when he was basically unstoppable on jump balls and back-shoulder throws. Graham will be an obvious TE1 in all 2018 fantasy drafts.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

The Packers are expected to sign Jimmy Graham to a three-year deal, according to multiple reports.

ESPN was the first to report the news, with NFL Network's Ian Rapoport echoing the report shortly after. Green Bay said they would become more aggressive in free agency this year, and they sure are off and running by signing the former Saints and Seahawks tight end. Graham is 31 years old, but he was an exception red zone weapon for Russell Wilson and the Seahawks last year, scoring ten touchdowns as a nearly uncoverable force deep in scoring territory. After Martellus Bennett was a flop in free agency last year, Aaron Rodgers and company must be thrilled to add the big 6'7" Graham to the offense. The deal cannot become official until tomorrow at 4:00 PM ET, but Graham is likely to become a Packer.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

The Packers have reached out to tight end Jimmy Graham, according to NFL Network.

Mike Garafolo and Tom Pelissero report the Packers are interested in the former Saints and Seahawks tight end, which isn't surprising after the team said they would be more aggressive in free agency this year. As was reported a couple weeks ago by Pelissero, the Saints are also interested in bringing back Graham, too. Houston is another team that could potentially be interested in signing the big red-zone target, and Graham looks like he should get a sizable deal in free agency. Graham will officially become a free agent on Wednesday at 4:00 PM ET.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham is expected to receive interest from the Saints in free agency.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero says Graham and the Seahawks are expected to part ways, and that the Pro Bowl tight end will have interest from "a bunch of teams," including the Saints. Considering Graham had a ton of success during his five years in New Orleans to start his NFL career, and the Saints haven't had great production from the position since he left, this seems like a natural fit. Many have also connected the Texans to Graham, too, and the Saints might need to pay a good amount to get the 6'7" red-zone target to come back. Graham is one of the biggest fantasy-relevant players to watch when free agency begins next week.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham reportedly "really unlikely" to be back in Seattle.

Graham is an impending free agent, and Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times thinks the big tight end is "excited" to enter free agency and won't be back because he hasn't been a great fit with the Seahawks since he arrived. He was certainly a fit near the end zone this season, basically working as their running game to help get the ball in for six on unguardable fade and back shoulder routes. However, the Seahawks don't appear likely to franchise tag him, and other teams might be more interested in signing him to a sizable deal in free agency. Nick Vannett was just a third-round selection by Seattle in 2016, and they might be ready to give him a bigger role on offense next season.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham catches three passes in Week 17.

Graham gained 45 yards on his three receptions (six targets) in the loss to Arizona. The big tight end had a 57/520/10 line this season, with his yardage being the lowest since his rookie season in 2010. But Graham and Russell Wilson had quite the connection in the red zone, including going on a stretch with nine touchdowns in eight weeks in middle of the year, as they were basically unguardable by the goal line on fades and back-shoulder type routes. He was basically non-existent in a few games this season, including to start the season and in the fantasy semifinals. It's possible the Seahawks decide to part ways with Graham this offseason if they re-shape the team a bit, but he'll offer double-digit scoring upside no matter where he plays in 2018.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham scores in win over the Cowboys.

It was a three-yard touchdown, and his only reception of the game. Graham has now combined for two yards over the past three weeks, which is almost behind comprehension, but at least he came through with a score for fantasy owners in the championship. Seattle needs to get their Pro Bowl tight end more involved in Week 17, but he will be a touchdown-dependent TE1 against Arizona.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham doesn't do much in Week 15.

Graham only had a -1-yard reception in Seattle's 42-7 loss against the Rams. Unfortunately, Luke Willson was the recipient of a 26-yard touchdown on a play where he ran right down the seam for a wide open score, and it just as easily could've been Graham. The -1-yard reception was Graham's only in the past two weeks, so his performance in the first week of the fantasy playoffs was a huge dud for many after Graham was one of the league's hottest players from Weeks 3-13. The Seahawks should try to get Graham going again in Week 16 against the Cowboys.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham held without a catch in loss to the Jaguars.

Graham's zero-catch performance unfortunately comes in the first week of the fantasy playoffs, but he should bounce back next Sunday against the Rams. Despite Zach Ertz not playing, Los Angeles just allowed three touchdowns to Philadelphia's tight ends, so Graham should be in for a nice day against them with first place on the line in the NFC West. He remains a high-end TE1 and a great bet to score.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham scores again in Week 13.

It's gotten to the point where not scoring would be a surprise for Graham, as this makes seven of his last eight games with a touchdown, with nine touchdowns coming in that span. Graham's score against the Eagles was on a back-shoulder throw on a wheel type of route against safety Malcolm Jenkins. Overall, he had three receptions for 26 yards and a touchdown in the game. Keep Graham locked in as an excellent TE1 for the first week of the fantasy playoffs, even in a matchup with the stingy defense of the Jaguars.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham (ankle) is officially active tonight against the Eagles.

Graham was listed as questionable coming into the game, but he was fully expected to be out there in this big game for the Seahawks. Graham is an excellent tight end option in fantasy lineups, and he's a good bet to score in a game Seattle will likely need to score a lot of points in.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

The Seahawks listed Jimmy Graham (ankle) as questionable for Week 13.

Graham practiced fully today, and it'd be a major surprise if he didn't play on Sunday night against Philadelphia. Remember, there's no "probable" tag anymore, and that's probably what Graham should be considered this week. Expect to be able to insert him into your lineup as a great TE1, but be sure to check in at 7:00 PM ET on Sunday night to make sure he's in the lineup.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham scores again in Week 12.

It's gotten to the point where a touchdown is expected each week for Graham, who scored for the third week in a row and the eighth time in the last seven games. Overall, Graham had three receptions for 34 yards and a touchdown against the 49ers, with the touchdown yet again coming at the goal line. This time, it was a slant route that Graham beat the defender on as he was flanked out wide and the slot receiver went in motion to clear out space for him to work. The Seahawks are doing an excellent job of utilizing Graham by the goal line, and it's helped make up for the lack of a powerful running game down there. The big tight end will be a good bet to score versus Philadelphia in Week 13.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham (ankle) is officially active for Week 12.

Graham was listed as questionable, but the team fully expected him to play against the 49ers. With seven touchdowns over his last six games, Graham is an obvious TE1 and should be in fantasy lineups.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham (ankle) is questionable for Week 12.

The big tight end twisted his ankle at the end of the Monday night loss to the Falcons, but we would expect him to be OK for Sunday. However, it wouldn't be a huge surprise if the Seahawks decided to sit him versus the 49ers—and the team doesn't play until the late-afternoon games—so it's a bit of a tricky situation. Just make sure you have a backup plan from the later games in case Graham doesn't play.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham (ankle) misses practice.

Graham rolled his ankle late in Monday night's loss to the Falcons, but he re-entered the game and seemed fine. However, injuries sometimes get worse after it originally occurs, so it's something to keep an eye on. We still fully expect the touchdown-machine to be ready to go versus the 49ers this Sunday.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham scores again in Seahawks' loss.

Graham's scorching scoring pace just keeps on going, as he caught seven of 11 targets for 58 yards (which all led the team) and a touchdown against the Falcons. The touchdown for Graham came on another high-point fade type of route by the goal line where he boxes out the defender and snatches the ball in the end zone—it's become one of the most unstoppable plays in the NFL this season, and Seattle tried it again later in the game but Russell Wilson appeared to slightly overthrow it. The big tight end also nearly had another touchdown on a prayer thrown up by Wilson that went off Graham's hands in the end zone on a catch he normally would make. Graham now has seven touchdowns this season, and they've all come in the last six games. He also had a two-point conversion to put the Seahawks within three late in the fourth quarter. The scoring pace has made Graham an extremely consistent fantasy option each week, and he needs to remain in lineups as a great TE1 versus the Niners in Week 12.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Touchdown-machine Jimmy Graham scores twice against the Cardinals.

Graham was targeted a team-high nine times by Russell Wilson, catching six passes for 27 yards and two touchdowns in the Thursday night victory. Both touchdowns came at the goal line, with one coming in the first and one coming in the fourth. The first one was on a little post route where he used his big frame to just go up and get a lofted throw by Wilson. And the second one was on the curl/fade-type route he's been scoring on the past few weeks. Over the last five games, Graham has six touchdowns, and he'll remain a great TE1 as long as he's on this scoring roll.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham gets eight targets against the Redskins.

Graham caught five of his eight targets, gaining 59 yards in the game. After a very slow start to the season, Graham has at least 59 yards or a touchdown in each of his last six games and is on pace for 66 receptions, 656 yards, and eight touchdowns. Look for him to increase the yardage pace over the second half of the season, as he and Russell Wilson appear to be in a groove right now. Graham will remain a TE1 against the Cardinals on Thursday night.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham scores game-winner in Seahawks' shootout win.

Graham, who is reportedly available for trade, started off the game slow; but he got going in the end and ended up with four receptions for 39 yards and two touchdowns, including a game-winner on an 18-yarder where Graham ran wide open through a zone defense for an easy pitch-and-catch with just over 20 seconds left in the game. Russell Wilson even called the play "bizarre" to see Graham that wide open. Graham now has a touchdown in three straight weeks, and he'll remain a great option against the Redskins in Week 9—assuming he's still with the Seahawks.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

The Seahawks would "consider" trading Jimmy Graham, according to Ian Rapoport.

Rapoport says they've "had talks" about Graham and noted that the team is pushing for a left tackle, but that doesn't mean Graham will be traded. Rapoport, though right on a lot of things, has had more than his fair share of being wrong, too. It's something to keep an eye on as the trade deadline approaches on Tuesday, but we would expect Graham to probably remain with Seattle this season.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham scores against the Giants.

Graham struggled for parts of the game, as he had a drop on an easy touchdown at the goal line, then he had another drop on a wide open pass down the sideline that would've went for a huge gain if not a touchdown. Graham did make up for it though, as late in the game he had a touchdown on the same play he dropped in the end zone earlier, using his big frame to get position (and perhaps he got away with pass interference). Overall, the big tight end had three receptions for 51 yards and a touchdown. After Graham's slow start to the season, he's been one of the best fantasy tight ends over the last few weeks and will look to keep it going against Houston next week.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham scores first touchdown of the season in win over the Rams.

The score was Graham’s first of 2017 and the only touchdown for Seattle on the day, and it came on a fade route in the end zone where Graham boxed out the defender and used his big frame to easily go up and snatch the ball. Overall, Graham had six receptions for 37 yards and the touchdown in the win. He will be one of the better tight end options when the Seahawks return from their bye to face a Giants team that has struggled all year against tight ends in Week 7.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham caught four passes for 61 yards in Sunday's win over the Colts.

Graham also committed a bad drop that resulted in a one-handed interception by safety Malik Hooker, but Russell Wilson went right back to him on the next drive. The talented tight end is on pace for just 568 scoreless yards this season, and while that should definitely increase, he's not the guy he was in New Orleans when he was a focal point and heavily targeted by Drew Brees. Graham will be a midrange TE1 option against the Rams in Week 5.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham (ankle) was limited in practice today.

The Seahawks appear to be taking it easy with Graham as he still battles through his ankle injury from Week 2. He might just be limited again tomorrow and listed as questionable for Sunday night, but he's expected to be out there against the Colts.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham (ankle) did not practice today.

Graham is coming off his best game of the season and looked healthy on Sunday, so there's not much doubt he'll be ready this week. It's likely just a rest day for Graham.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham finally gets going in Week 3 loss.

After catching four passes for nine yards through two games, Graham caught seven of 11 targets for 72 yards against the Titans. Russell Wilson, who threw for a career-high in yardage, targeted Graham on deep-intermediate throws, which was a great sign. Owners of Graham should feel a lot better after this performance, as it looks like the passing offense of the Seahawks is back on track. Graham gets the Colts in Week 4.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham (ankle) "did everything in practice" today, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Graham is listed as questionable for the game, but Carroll says he should be fine for the game against Tennessee. You can insert Graham in your lineup as a TE1 despite his four receptions for nine yards through two games so far, as the Seahawks could turn it on offensively at any time.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham (ankle) is questionable for Week 3.

The Seahawks have not yet had their Friday practice, so we'll have to see if Graham is able to participate in it. If he does, it'll help his chances of being active on Sunday. If not, the Seahawks might just opt to hold Graham out for this weekend. Either way, a final decision might not be made until pregame on Sunday, but the Seahawks play in the late afternoon games. You need to have a backup plan if you want Graham in your lineup if he's active.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham (ankle) did not practice today.

This is the second-straight missed practice for Graham, who's looking less than 50/50 for Sunday against Tennessee. Graham still has some time before Sunday, but if he doesn't get in at least a limited practice tomorrow he likely won't play in the game. The official injury report for Sunday's game will be released tomorrow, and we'll see if Graham is listed as questionable, doubtful, or out.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham (ankle) did not practice for the Seahawks today.

It's only Wednesday, but Graham is not off to a great start for the week. Hopefully he's able to get on the practice field tomorrow and/or Friday so he can suit up this Sunday against the Titans. Graham needs a good game to get on track after he hasn't done much at all through two weeks, but being injured is going to make things tougher.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham is dealing with an ankle injury.

Graham was rolled up on in Seattle's Week 2 win over the 49ers and it was initially said to be a knee injury, but Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll called it a "sore ankle." Carroll also added that Graham's injury "certainly did" play a role in Graham's role in the game (he had just one reception for one yard). Consider Graham questionable for Week 3 against the Titans, and you'd probably be better off finding better options if Graham isn't able to get in a full practice this week.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham doesn't do much in Week 2.

Graham, who left he game briefly with a leg injury but returned, had only one reception for one yard against the 49ers. After talk of a lighter and quicker Graham being ready to make a huge impact and build off last season, he has only four receptions for nine yards through two games this year. The entire passing offense is struggling for the Seahawks so he's not alone, but it's still disappointing he hasn't been able to do much yet this year. Graham still offers a ton of upside and should stay in lineups for Week 3 against the Titans unless you happen to have another solid TE option.

Jimmy Graham | Bears TE

Jimmy Graham doesn't do much in Week 1.

Graham did tie for the team lead in targets with seven, but he caught only three passes for nine yards against the Packers. As evident from his stat line, all his receptions were short throws in the flat that he didn't do anything with. Graham plays the Niners in Week 2 and should have a much better game along with the rest of Seattle's offense.

Jimmy Graham caught two passes for 34 yards on Friday night.

Graham also drew a pass interference penalty in the red zone. He looks to be in great shape and offers good upside in the seventh round of fantasy drafts. Graham is a good bet to finish as a top-five tight end if he's healthy.

Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham dropped 20 pounds for the season.

This is an excellent sign for Graham, who says "it's almost a hundred times [better than last year]." Graham said he took advice from future Hall of Fame tight end Tony Gonzalez, who told him to lose weight as he gets older. It certainly worked for Gonzalez, who had five excellent seasons with the Falcons in his age 33-37 seasons to end his career. Naturally, Graham should be able to move easier and faster after dropping that much weight. He's currently being drafted as a mid-range TE1, and he should certainly be able to return or exceed that value if he stays healthy.

Jimmy Graham is having a full training camp for the Seahawks.

Last year, Graham was recovering from his torn patellar tendon and it was unclear if he would even be ready for the start of the season; but now he is fully healthy, was able to have a full offseason, and is continuing to gain chemistry with quarterback Russell Wilson. Even coming back from the bad knee injury, Graham had another great season en route to a Pro Bowl appearance. Wilson believes his tight end should have a bigger season in 2017, stating: "he had a great year last year, and he’s looking forward to an even better year, this year coming up." Graham actually had a career-high in yards per reception last season, with 14.2, so there is a lot of upside for Graham if he can improve his receptions and touchdowns this year.

Sheil Kapadia reports that the Seahawks believe Jimmy Graham is "primed to have his best year in Seattle."

According to Kapadia, Graham was the first player Carroll mentioned when asked who stood out this spring. Carroll said his tight end has become "so much more of a complete player" than they thought he might be. This season, they are going to put more of a focus on getting Graham the ball near the end zone, after he had six touchdowns last season. Graham had 923 yards last season despite having to recover from his ruptured patellar injury from 2015, and he actually had a career-high in yards per reception (14.2). The 6'7" target is a high floor TE1 that also offers very good upside.

Jimmy Graham catches three passes for 22 yards and a touchdown versus the Falcons.

Graham scored on the Seahawks' first drive of the game. He had a great bounce back season, coming back from his patellar tendon injury. Graham will enter his age 30 season in 2017, and he will be one of the top options at tight end in fantasy drafts.

Those that took a chance on Graham late in fantasy drafts were certainly rewarded.

Quarterback Russell Wilson might need to lean on Graham in the playoffs, as the Seahawks' running game is really struggling.

Jimmy Graham shut down in blowout loss.

In a frigid Green Bay with snow surrounding the stadium, we should have known Graham wouldn't do much on Sunday. He caught just one pass for 16 yards, letting many fantasy owners down--including ESPN's Adam Schefter. He should be better against the Rams this Thursday night.

Jimmy Graham catches six of seven targets, fumbles in Week 12 loss to the Buccaneers.

Graham had six catches for 67 yards and a costly fumble late in the game. The fumble occurred when Graham was flipped and the ball was kind of accidentally kneed out by a Buccaneers defender. Graham was the most consistent target when the rest of the offense really struggled. Graham will be a high-end TE1 next week against a Panthers team that has had trouble defending tight ends this season.

Jimmy Graham catches four passes in win over Patriots.

Graham had four catches for 48 yards. The Pats likely wanted to limit Graham's impact after he scored twice the week before. Graham has a tough matchup against Philadelphia this week, but keep him in your lineup as a TE1.
