Jimmy Graham (knee) was limited on Wednesday.

Graham had an every-down role in Week 3, posting a 6/100/1 line. Seattle is just managing his reps.
Sep 28 - 7:25 PM

Jimmy Graham caught 6-of-9 targets for 100 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' Week 3 win over the 49ers.

Graham and Christine Michael were monsters in this one, giving Seattle a 37-3 lead before the 49ers chipped away in garbage time. Coming off a ruptured patellar tendon, Graham looked fully back to form by skying to make contested catches in the open field and appearing in excellent shape physically. Graham needs to be picked up in all fantasy leagues ahead of a Week 4 date with the Jets. He is back to being a full-time player in Seattle's offense.
Sep 25 - 7:30 PM

Jimmy Graham (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Seattle is managing his reps after he played on 82 percent of snaps last week. Graham is a low-end TE1 for Sunday's 49ers matchup.
Sep 21 - 7:39 PM

Jimmy Graham said he felt "like a beast" after the Week 2 loss to the Rams.

"I feel the same," Graham said. "So I'll play more and more and get more and more opportunities. I just want to be there for my guys and be there for my team." Clearly nearing full health, Graham played 82 percent of the offensive snaps (55-of-57) Week 2 after playing just 21 percent in the season opener. With the 49ers next up on the schedule, Graham is worth a start this week.

Jimmy Graham caught 3-of-4 targets for 42 yards in the Seahawks' Week 2 loss to the Rams.

After playing just 18-of-73 snaps in Week 1, Graham played 82 percent of the snaps (55-of-67), so his playing time is on the rise after last year's torn patellar tendon. Graham will be on the streaming map Week 3 vs. the 49ers.
Sep 18 - 7:52 PM

Coach Pete Carroll said Jimmy Graham (knee) is "ready to play in all situations."

Graham played only 17 snaps in the opener. Seattle will increase his usage this week, but he's still unlikely to have an every-down role. Graham is a TE2 until proven otherwise.
Sep 16 - 5:28 PM

Jimmy Graham had one catch for 11 yards in Seattle's Week 1 win over Miami.

Graham played limited snaps coming off his knee injury. He wasn't more than a decoy, with Luke Willson getting the majority of playing time. Graham's role should expand over the next few weeks, but he's nothing more than a TE2 stash.
Sep 11 - 8:54 PM

Jimmy Graham (knee) is active for Week 1 against Miami.

Graham was expected to play, but isn't going to see a full complement of snaps. He's a TE2 until proven otherwise. Seattle's inactives are OL Germain Ifedi, RB Alex Collins, CB Tharold Simon, LB Dewey McDonald, OL Rees Odhiambo, TE Nick Vannett, and DT Garrison Smith.
Sep 11 - 2:44 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Jimmy Graham (knee) will play Sunday versus Miami, but will not play a full complement of snaps.

The good news is Graham will be a contributor at all after rupturing his patellar tendon last season. The bad news is his playing time and usage are entirely unclear coming off the toughest injury a football player can suffer. Graham will not be a fantasy option until he shows he's capable of handling at least half of Seattle's weekly offensive snaps. He's just a TE2 stash.
Sep 11 - 9:24 AM

Jimmy Graham (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 1.

Graham practiced fully throughout the week. He should play Sunday, but may be on a snap count. Graham isn't more than a TE2 against the Dolphins.
Sep 9 - 5:28 PM

Jimmy Graham (knee) got in another full practice Thursday.

Graham is on track to start Sunday's opener against the Dolphins, but his status still can't be taken for granted. The Seahawks have been vague with his health ever since he first went down. If Graham does suit up, he's just a mid-range TE2 until he proves he's back to being the player he was before tearing up his knee.
Sep 8 - 7:17 PM

Russell Wilson said he and Jimmy Graham (knee) have been "lights out" working together at practice.

Per Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle, Wilson has thrown "a ton" of balls to Graham and the two have had "lots of meetings." Graham could sure use the reps following a length recovery from knee surgery. It's still unclear if Graham will play Week 1 against Miami or how effective the tight end will be if he does suit up.
Sep 8 - 3:39 PM

Jimmy Graham (knee) is practicing in full this week.

Graham has been full-go in practice since late August. Despite missing the preseason, coach Pete Carroll expects Graham to play in Week 1.
Sep 7 - 7:19 PM

Coach Pete Carroll said the chances "are good" that Jimmy Graham (knee) plays Week 1 against the Dolphins.

The Seahawks have been taking it slow with Graham as he works his way back from a torn patellar tendon, but it's amazing to see he's suffered no known setbacks in his recovery. Don't expect Graham to be anywhere close to full go Sunday, but he could play on third downs and in the red zone.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Despite the fact that Graham is expected to suit up, he's not going to play a full allotment of snaps and considering how soft salaries are in Week 1, there is no reason to roster him just yet. Luke Willson still figures to see some work between the 20s and with guys like Fleener, Ertz and Kelce available at cheaper price tags, there is even less intrigue to rostering Graham. It won't be long before the versatile TE is making a strong impact in Seattle, it just isn't likely to happen this early.
