Jimmy Graham was held to three catches for 41 yards on eight targets in Sunday night's Week 10 loss to the Cardinals.

Graham couldn't come down with two first half red-zone targets, but drew a pass interference call in the end-zone. He wasn't a factor outside of a 30-yard catch on the opening drive of the second half. Graham hasn't scored since Week 3 and has only two touchdowns. He'll remain a mid-range TE1 for Week 11.

Jimmy Graham soaked up seven of his 10 targets for 75 yards in the Seahawks' Week 8 win over the Cowboys.

Graham has been alternating good and bad games all year. Luckily for fantasy owners, this was one of the good variety. Graham came down with a 19-yard reception on the Seahawks’ opening drive but didn’t catch another pass until the second half. After that, he carried the offense on his back with six catches for 59 yards the rest of the way. It’s become evident that Graham is Russell Wilson’s go-to target whenever the Seahawks are in catch-up mode. There’s a good chance the Seahawks will have to play from behind next time out against the Cardinals.
Nov 1 - 8:28 PM

Jimmy Graham caught 2-of-5 targets for 31 yards in Seattle's Week 7 win over the 49ers.

Only four days after catching eight passes for 140 yards, Graham reverted to afterthought status on a night where the Seahawks didn't have to throw much to whip the 49ers. Graham caught a beautiful 23-yard pass down the seam, but was otherwise crickets quiet. He took a huge hit from S Eric Reid on one of his missed connections, but didn't appear any worse for the wear. Graham will be a mid-range TE1 against the Cowboys in Week 8.

Jimmy Graham hauled in eight of 12 targets for 140 yards in the Seahawks' Week 6 loss to the Panthers.

This was Graham’s best game in a Seahawks uniform. He nabbed three catches of at least 25 yards including a 45-yarder down the sideline early in the fourth quarter. The vast majority of his production came in the second half where Graham snagged five catches for 99 yards. Graham is now on pace for 917 yards, which is actually more than he produced last year with New Orleans. Graham will try to stay hot Thursday against the Niners.

Russell Wilson said he will "keep trying to find" Jimmy Graham.

"I think there’s some more room to obviously improve," Wilson said. "We need to find ways to get him more involved, but not force it. He’s a special player, he’s one of a kind. So we’ve got to find that." Graham is on pace for just under 90 targets this season after averaging over 137 his last four years in New Orleans. A drop in targets was expected in Seattle's less voluminous passing attack, but the real concern is Graham has seen just two red-zone targets since Week 1. The Seahawks have to find a way to get Graham more involved in the scoring areas and on third downs.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll would "love to get the ball in (Jimmy Graham's) hands more."

"We only completed 15 passes (Sunday), so we need to get more activity out of him," Carroll said. "Just like we need to get more out of the other guys too. But he’s working hard at it." Graham is averaging just 5.4 targets through his first five games as a Seahawk. He averaged 8.8 per week as a Saint from 2011-14. The impetus is on Carroll to change the game plan, not Graham to get more open.
Oct 13 - 7:01 PM

Jimmy Graham secured three of five targets for 30 yards in the Seahawks' Week 5 loss to the Bengals.

Five games into his tenure in Seattle, it’s obvious Graham is a square peg in a round hole. The Seahawks just don’t seem to have any use for his skill set, which is a shame because Graham would be a monster if he were still in New Orleans or almost anywhere else. He’s still an every-week fantasy starter at a talent-starved position, but we’re not expecting the Graham of old to resurface next week against the Panthers.
Oct 11 - 5:48 PM

Jimmy Graham caught 4-of-5 targets for 29 yards in the Seahawks' Week 4 win over the Lions on Monday night.

Graham had one catch for six yards at halftime and didn't catch his second pass until the fourth quarter. Graham was funneled the ball last week, posting a 7-83-1 line, but went back to being an afterthought in this anemic pass offense Monday. He's going to have ups and downs throughout the season with very little predictability. Graham will be a highly-volatile TE1 next week in Cincinnati. Through four games with his new team, Graham is on pace to post an uninspiring 72-696-8 line.
Oct 6 - 12:12 AM

Jimmy Graham nabbed seven of his eight targets for 83 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' Week 3 win over the Bears.

The mighty Graham has finally come out of hibernation. Graham needed a convincing performance to win back our trust and that’s exactly what he delivered on Sunday. He caught everything in sight and usually brought a few defenders with him as he clawed for extra yards. Graham steamrolled Brock Vereen on a 30-yard catch for his second touchdown of the year. Sunday Graham looked every bit as dominant as the player who spent five years in New Orleans dunking on goal posts. Look for Graham to have another big game next week against the Lions.
Sep 27 - 8:03 PM

Jimmy Graham denied he is frustrated with his role in the Seahawks' offense.

"I’m doing what’s asked of me," Graham said. "I know my opportunities are going to come." Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman reported Graham "hates" his role in the offense, but Graham said he is "not really sure where that came from." Graham was never going to see 140 targets in the Seahawks' offense, but he has to see more than the two looks he got Week 2. Seattle has a great chance to get Graham going this week against the Bears.
Sep 26 - 12:46 PM

Russell Wilson insists he has chemistry with new TE Jimmy Graham.

"We definitely have the chemistry," Wilson insisted. "There's no worries about that." It hasn't looked like it through two games, with Wilson targeting his big offseason acquisition just 10 times through two games. Bleacher Report has reported that Graham "hates" his role in the Seahawks' offense. We'd expect coach Pete Carroll to make a concerted effort to get Graham going against the Bears.
Sep 24 - 3:33 PM

Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman reports Jimmy Graham is "pissed off" and "hates" his role with the Seahawks.

According to Freeman, "several" Seahawks players have informed him of this and it's a "fact." Graham allegedly "hates what's happening in Seattle" where he's "barely looked at in the passing game." Through two games, Graham has just 10 targets, which is 15th among tight ends. We could see the target dip coming as soon as it was announced he was traded to the Seahawks, but not in this fashion. Russell Wilson has attempted more than 30 passes in each of the first two games, yet Graham doesn't have much to show for it. It's not like he's being asked to block more; per PFF, Graham has blocked on 31.7 percent of his snaps. He blocked on 30.5 percent of his snaps in New Orleans last season. Expect the Seahawks to try to feed him more this week against the Bears.
Sep 22 - 8:15 PM

Coach Pete Carroll said the Seahawks called plays to get Jimmy Graham the ball Sunday night, but "it just didn't happen."

Carroll said the situation was "frustrating." Graham was held to one catch by the Packers on Sunday night and now has just 10 targets and 62 receiving yards through two games. Graham's is becoming a touchdown-dependent TE1.
Sep 21 - 1:02 PM

Jimmy Graham had one catch for 11 yards in Sunday night's Week 2 loss to the Packers.

Graham had one target in the first half and didn’t make his only catch until late in the third quarter. He remains the No. 1 pass-game option and favorite for targets, but hasn't done much outside of his Week 1 touchdown. Graham should be a bigger part of Seattle's gameplan in Week 3 against Chicago.
