Garrett Graham caught 1-of-5 targets for a seven-yard touchdown in the Texans' Week 2 loss to the Panthers.

Graham's highlight-reel, one-handed grab was the only positive for the Texans on the offensive side of the ball. He's not a realistic fantasy option. Graham's five targets look good on paper, but Ryan Mallett attempted 58 passes.
Sep 20 - 5:42 PM

John Harris of the Texans' official website reports Garrett Graham has been "completely dominating" linebackers and safeties in pass drills at training camp.

"It’s as if he’s playing pitch and catch with the quarterbacks with how open he gets himself downfield," Harris wrote. Graham is a small-ish, finesse player at 6'3/243 who's more of an off-the-line, "move" tight end. He was only targeted 26 times across 566 snaps last season. The tight end was a non-existent part of coach Bill O'Brien's pass offense last season. Graham isn't yet on the redraft map.

Texans declared TE Garrett Graham, WR DeVier Posey, QB Tom Savage, ILB Mike Mohamed, S Josh Aubrey, LG Xavier Su'a-Filo, and OLB Jason Ankrah inactive for Week 17 against the Jaguars.

Graham has an ankle injury. His season ends with 18 catches for 197 yards and one touchdown on 500-plus snaps. Su'a-Filo, the Texans' second-round pick, has been a routine healthy scratch the past few weeks after playing just 130 snaps scattered across the first three months. Houston has amazingly gotten very little out of its draft class. Posey and Savage are out with injuries.

Garrett Graham (high-ankle sprain) is expected to remain sidelined for Week 16.

The disappointing tight end has likely played his final snap of 2014.
Thu, Dec 18, 2014 04:05:00 PM

Garrett Graham (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 15.

Ryan Griffin and C.J. Fiedorowicz will be the Texans' tight ends.
Fri, Dec 12, 2014 03:54:00 PM

Garrett Graham (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Graham is week to week with a high-ankle sprain. The Texans will continue to go with Ryan Griffin and rookie C.J. Fiedorowicz at tight end.

Texans declared TE Garrett Graham, QB Thad Lewis, WR DeVier Posey, CB Andre Hal, S Josh Aubrey, OT Jeff Adams, and OLB Jadeveon Clowney inactive for Week 14 against the Jaguars.

Graham is believed to have a high ankle sprain. The Texans will go with Ryan Griffin and rookie C.J. Fiedorowicz at tight end against Jacksonville.

Garrett Graham (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 14.

Graham should be considered week to week. Ryan Griffin will start against Jacksonville, with J.J. Watt likely getting snaps in goal-line packages.
Fri, Dec 5, 2014 07:32:00 PM

Garrett Graham (ankle) isn't expected to play Week 14 against the Jaguars.

Graham hurt his ankle early in last week's win over the Titans. He's been a non-factor all year. The Texans promoted TE Anthony Denham from the practice squad.
Wed, Dec 3, 2014 04:15:00 PM

Texans TE Garrett Graham was held without a catch in Houston's Week 13 win over Tennessee.

Graham suffered an ankle injury early in the game and wasn't heard from thereafter. Meanwhile, both J.J. Watt and Texans reserve TE Ryan Griffin caught red-zone TDs. Graham has been a total non-factor in fantasy football this year.

Garrett Graham secured 4-of-7 targets for 41 yards in the Texans' Week 12 loss to the Bengals.

He led the Texans in receiving yards on a day where Ryan Mallett got nothing going outside the numbers. Graham has been productive enough with Mallett at the helm to at least be worth TE1 streamer consideration when the Texans take on the Titans next. But streamers need to be aware that Mallett is a highly erratic quarterback whose accuracy tends to tank for extended stretches.
Sun, Nov 23, 2014 05:23:00 PM

Garrett Graham caught two passes for 34 yards and a touchdown in the Texans' Week 11 win over the Browns.

Graham did all of his damage on one second-quarter drive, which he capped with a 20-yard touchdown catch up the seam. Graham has been an almost total-non-factor in Houston's passing attack this year, but may have some life now that Ryan Mallett has taken over at quarterback. Graham is still a TE2 at best entering a Week 12 date with the Bengals.
Sun, Nov 16, 2014 05:23:00 PM

Garrett Graham had zero catches on one target in Sunday's Week 9 loss to the Eagles.

That's back-to-back zero-catch games for Graham, who has predictably nosedived now that TE-friendly Gary Kubiak is in Baltimore.
Sun, Nov 2, 2014 06:05:00 PM

Garrett Graham was held without a catch in the Texans' Week 8 win over Tennessee.

Graham was targeted just one time on the day, a seam shot from Ryan Fitzpatrick that predictably fell incomplete. Graham has been a very minor part of the offense, making him more of a TE3.
