Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Jimmy Graham is questionable for Week 3 with an ankle injury.
Graham appeared to injure his left knee during the Week 2 win, so it is unclear when the ankle injury occurred. Either way, Graham now has four catches for nine yards through two games and is playing at less than 100 percent. Owners need to look for alternate options. Sep 18 - 12:48 PM

Jimmy Graham caught 1-of-2 targets for one yard in the Seahawks' Week 2 win over the 49ers.

His other target was a drop early in the game where he took a big hit. He also briefly left with a knee injury after getting his leg rolled up from behind on a running play. Perhaps the injury had something to do with the performance, but Graham now has four catches for nine yards through two games. It may be time to find other options until Seattle works out their woes in the passing game.

When speaking about Jimmy Graham, Russell Wilson said the Seahawks "want to continue to find ways to get him the football."

"He’s super special, and he works extremely hard," Wilson added. Graham was a flop in Week 1 against the Packers with only eight yards on his seven targets. Coach Pete Carroll has also said that the Seahawks want to run the ball more against the 49ers and they should be playing with a lead for most of the game, but expect Graham to get plenty of targets to help the Seahawks take command of this one. He's a high-end TE1.

Jimmy Graham caught 3-of-7 targets for eight yards in the Seahawks' Week 1 loss to the Packers.

It was a rough day for Graham, who committed a clear drop and showed questionable hands on 1-2 other missed connections. He was also brutally interfered with on an end zone target, but the refs inexplicably refused to call a penalty. Like the rest of the Seahawks' offense, Graham has a bounce-back matchup for Week 2 in the 49ers.
Sep 10 - 8:24 PM

Jimmy Graham caught 2-of-4 targets for 34 yards in the Seahawks' third preseason game.

Graham looked up to speed in his first extended run of the preseason, catching a bullet up the seam from Russell Wilson and almost forcing his way into the end zone. Even further removed from his knee injury and with a healthy Wilson throwing him the ball, Graham has a shot to better his 65/923/6 line from a season ago. The fifth tight end off the board on average, Graham is a fine pick at the end of the fifth round.

Jimmy Graham said he feels "almost a hundred times" better than he did last season, and is down from 280 pounds to 260.

Graham said he had to rehab his surgically-repaired knee twice a day all last season. Coach Pete Carroll alluded to this last week, saying the team had to "manage" its star tight end. The implication is that Graham will have more time to practice and less weight on his knee this season. Graham is a locked-in TE1 for his age-31 campaign.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said the team had to "manage" Jimmy Graham (knee) last season.

Graham made a surprisingly quick return from a patellar tendon tear last season, but it does not sound like he ever got back to 100 percent. "He played in every game and didn’t miss any time, but he wasn’t at his best," Carroll said. "He survived it, and now he is really moving up." Graham still managed 923 yards and six touchdowns at less than full health last year, finishing as the TE4. Set to be a free agent after the season, Graham could be even better this time around.

FanRag's Roy Cummings speculates the Seahawks could franchise contract-year TE Jimmy Graham in 2018.

Graham rebounded to Pro Bowl form last season, ranking behind only Travis Kelce and Greg Olsen in yards while grading as a top-five PFF tight end. Seattle picked up his $2 million roster bonus in March, but there’s been no talk on his post-2017 future. Despite GM John Schneider's history of not using the franchise tag, Graham’s salary and knee issues are sticking points in an extension. Tagging Graham would pay him slightly lower than this year's $10 million cap hit.

Jimmy Graham admits he "barely practiced" in 2016.

Speaking at the Pro Bowl, Graham confirmed his return from a torn patellar tendon was as arduous as possible, but that he's long since turned the corner, as evidenced by his excellent season. "Everything's in the rear view," he said. "So imagine how I played this year. I mean, I barely practiced ... just to be ready for the games." Graham tapered as the year wore on, but averaged a career-best 14.2 yards per catch. His 923 yards were his most since 2013. Although he's now on the wrong side of 30, Graham should remain a TE1 for 2017.

Coach Pete Carroll indicated Jimmy Graham will remain with the Seahawks next season.

With Graham owed $10 million including a $2 million roster bonus due on March 11, there had been speculation the Seahawks would decide to move on, but that idea always seemed far fetched. It is more likely Seattle looks to extend the 30-year-old, who had a remarkable year coming off a torn patellar tendon and should only get better as he gets further removed from the injury. Graham will be back for what suddenly has the makings of a high-powered passing attack.

Jimmy Graham caught 3-of-3 targets for 22 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' Divisional Round loss to the Falcons.

Returning from a torn patellar tendon — arguably the worst lower-body injury a football player can suffer — Graham appeared in all 18 of the Seahawks' games, posting a 65/923/6 regular season line for his most yardage since 2013. Graham averaged a career-best 14.2 yards per catch, and was physically dominant on film. His stats trailed off after Tyler Lockett got cooking late in the year, but Graham had the looks of someone who will remain a potent weapon at age 31 in 2017.
Jan 14 - 8:06 PM

Jimmy Graham caught 3-of-4 targets for 37 yards in the Seahawks' Wild Card win over the Lions.

Graham did briefly leave after taking a big hit early in the game, but he was simply held in check on a day Russell Wilson attempted just 30 passes. His biggest catch was a 10-yard grab on third down to set up the game-sealing touchdown. Graham has not topped 70 yards since Week 9 and has been maddeningly inconsistent, but he will be tough to ignore in a great matchup in Atlanta on Saturday. Graham had six catches for 89 yards in his first meeting with the Falcons in Week 6.
Jan 7 - 11:39 PM

Jimmy Graham caught 4-of-7 targets for 64 yards in the Seahawks' Week 17 win over San Francisco.

His notable play was a 42-yard downfield jump ball that set up Thomas Rawls' one-yard score. Graham was one of the few Seahawks starters still playing in the fourth quarter against the 49ers, although he only came on for specific packages. Seattle will play the winner of Sunday night's Packers-Lions game in the Wild Card Round. Graham will have a great matchup either way.
Jan 1 - 7:52 PM

Jimmy Graham caught 2-of-3 targets for 43 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' Week 16 loss to the Cardinals.

Much as he's been for the last several weeks, Graham was quiet for most of this game until he reeled in a 37-yard touchdown from Russell Wilson in the fourth quarter. Graham could still see a slight bump in targets in the absence of Tyler Lockett (ankle/leg), who is done for the season. Graham will remain in play as a DFS option against the Rams in Week 17 and in the NFL playoffs.

Jimmy Graham caught 1-of-2 targets for 31 yards in the Seahawks' Week 15 win over the Rams.

Ay caramba. Graham got out-targeted by Luke Willson, who also scored. It was the most brutal night imaginable for Graham's fantasy owners, as his missed connection was a touchdown turned interception ultimately ruled an incomplete pass. Graham has cooled considerably from his mid-season hot streak as the Seahawks' offense has gotten stuck in a rut. He'll be a TE1 in the 5-8 range for Week 16 against the Cardinals.
