  • Jimmy Graham Fired Up To Face Former Team

    Chicago Bears tight end Jimmy Graham will be fired up to face his former team, the Saints, in Week 8. Graham isn't racking up tons of targets on a weekly basis but is still a legitimate red zone threat for a struggling Bears offense. The Saints have allowed the second most fantasy points to opposing tight ends, including six touchdowns to the position through six games. Graham has at least 30 receiving yards in each of his last five games but also has four touchdowns on the season. The veteran tight end will, once again, be a touchdown-dependent option in Week 8.

  • Jimmy Graham Has Low Ceiling Against Rams

    Chicago Bears tight end Jimmy Graham will go up against a Rams Defense that is allowing the 15th fewest fantasy points to opposing tight ends this season. Graham has been an excellent red zone addition to the Bears with four touchdowns in his first six games. But his production seems to be capping off around three-to-five catches and 30-40 receiving yards a game. Graham's value will be tied to touchdowns and could produce a modest fantasy line in PPR leagues but fantasy teams need to temper expectations against a tough Rams defense in Week 7.

  • Jimmy Graham Catches Five Passes In Win

    Chicago Bears tight end Jimmy Graham caught five passes for 34 yards in the Bears 23-16 win over the Panthers in Week 6. Graham picked up some first downs with his receptions but the Bears rarely stretched the field in this contest. Chicago is now 5-1 and Graham has been a big contributor with four touchdowns in his first six games. The veteran, however, will be no more than a touchdown-dependent selection next week against the Rams on MNF.

  • Jimmy Graham Will Be Red-Zone Threat Against Carolina

    Chicago Bears tight end Jimmy Graham will go up against a Panthers Defense in Week 6 that is allowing the eighth fewest fantasy points to opposing tight ends. Carolina has allowed only one touchdown to the tight end position this season but Graham has been fantastic in the red zone this season. The veteran has only 17 catches on the season but already has four touchdowns, including an incredible one-handed TD catch last week against the Buccaneers. Graham will have solid TE2 fantasy appeal in Week 6.

  • Jimmy Graham Makes Sensational Touchdown Catch

    Chicago Bears tight end Jimmy Graham caught three passes for 33 yards and one touchdown in the Bears 20-19 victory over the Buccaneers in Week 5. Graham was at it again, this time making a fantastic, one-handed snag for a 12-yard score to finish off the first half. The veteran now has four touchdown receptions through five games and is tied for second in the NFL among tight ends behind Green Bay's Robert Tonyan. Graham will not rack up tons of yards but will be a touchdown-dependent threat in Week 5 against the Panthers.

  • Jimmy Graham Lacking Targets Heading Into Week 5

    Chicago Bears tight end Jimmy Graham will go up against a Buccaneers Defense in Week 5 that is allowing the 11th-fewest fantasy points to tight ends this season. Graham already has three touchdowns this season, but he only has 136 yards through four games. No matter who is at quarterback, the Bears offense continues to struggle. The veteran simply is lacking the consistent targets to trust right now in fantasy, especially in PPR leagues. At best, Graham will be a touchdown-dependent option against a sneaky talented Tampa defense in Week 5.

  • Jimmy Graham Totals 33 Yards Against Colts

    Chicago Bears tight end Jimmy Graham caught four passes for 33 yards in the Bears disappointing 19-11 loss to the Colts. The veteran saw five targets in the game, most of them coming on the final few drives as the Bears trailed by multiple scores. The arrow has been pointing up for Graham from a fantasy perspective but the Bears offense was neutralized by a talented Colts Defense. Graham will have TE2 value heading into a Thursday night matchup against the Buccaneers in Week 5.

  • Jimmy Graham Has Stiff Test Against Colts

    Chicago Bears tight end Jimmy Graham will have a tough test in Week 4 against the Colts. Graham is coming off a game against the Falcons where he caught six passes for 60 yards and one touchdown. Backup quarterback Nick Foles looked for the veteran pass-catcher often and now Foles is the starter moving forward. But the Bears offense will have a stiff opponent in a Colts Defense that is allowing the fewest fantasy points to opposing tight ends through the first three games. Nonetheless, Graham will have intriguing value as a touchdown-dependent option at tight end in deeper leagues and DFS formats for Week 4.

  • Jimmy Graham Catches Two Touchdowns In Bears Win

    Chicago Bears tight end Jimmy Graham caught six passes for 60 yards and two touchdowns in the Bears 30-26 win over the Falcons in Week 3. The Bears offense sputtered early and turned to backup Nick Foles at quarterback in the second half. This move led to a furious Bears comeback and Graham was front-and-center. The veteran tight end caught his first touchdown from Mitchell Trubisky, then made some excellent grabs in the second half with Foles that culminated in a three-yard catch for his second score of the day. Graham may not be putting up elite stats but now has three touchdown catches in his first three games in a Bears uniform.

  • Jimmy Graham Tough To Trust Against Atlanta

    Chicago Bears tight end Jimmy Graham will try and up his production in Week 3 against the Falcons. Graham caught only one pass for 18 yards last week after securing his first touchdown of the season in Week 1. The veteran will go up against a Falcons Defense that has allowed a touchdown to a tight end in each of their first two games and currently are allowing the fifth most fantasy points to the position. Graham can be a weapon in head coach Matt Nagy's scheme but his lack of targets is sinking his fantasy value.

  • Jimmy Graham Tallies One Reception In Win

    Chicago Bears tight end Jimmy Graham caught only one pass for 18 yards in the Bears 17-17-13 win over the Giants. The veteran made a nice grab on an out-route for an early first down in the first quarter. But after that, Graham disappeared from the game plan and the Bears offense struggled in the second half. Graham is not the type of player to attract a ton of targets and will be no more than a touchdown-dependent fantasy option heading into Week 3.

  • Jimmy Graham A Touchdown-Dependent Option

    Chicago Bears tight end Jimmy Graham will be back on the fantasy radar heading into Week 2 against the Giants. Graham caught only three passes for 25 yards in Week 1 but brought in his first touchdown in a Bears uniform and had a second score expunged after an official review. The veteran will be a touchdown-dependent fantasy option against a Giants Defense that allowed eight receiving touchdowns to tight ends in 2019, tied for third most in the league. New York attempted to revamp their defense in the offseason but already is dealing with injuries to the unit, a group that was beaten regularly by the Steelers in Week 1. Graham's value will be best utilized in DFS leagues and standard scoring formats for Week 2.

  • Jimmy Graham Scores In Bears Debut

    Chicago Bears tight end Jimmy Graham caught three passes for 25 yards and one touchdown in the Bears comeback victory over the Lions in Week 1. Graham mistimed an easy reception early in the game but bounced back by securing a 2-yard catch for a score to begin a 21-point fourth quarter. The veteran then almost came down with a second touchdown but, after a scoring review, the referees determined his knee was down before crossing the goal line. Graham is no longer the fantasy stud of seasons past but this is a positive start to a new era with the Bears.

  • Jimmy Graham Has Sleeper Value Against Lions

    Chicago Bears tight end Jimmy Graham will have a fantastic matchup Week 1 against the Lions. The former Pro Bowler was a huge disappointment in Green Bay the past two seasons and many national pundits think he is washed up. But Graham has drawn rave reviews during training camp for the Bears and head coach Matt Nagy will be making it a point to reincorporate the tight end position back into the offensive scheme. Graham will have a strong matchup against a Lions Defense that allowed the third most fantasy points to opposing tight ends in 2019. The Lions allowed the ninth fewest targets to the position but opposing passers completed 68.8% of their throws, averaging 10.28 yards per completion. Graham could easily find the end zone Week 1 and could post top-10 numbers among tight ends out of the gate.

  • Jimmy Graham Gaining Sleeper Value

    Chicago Bears tight end Jimmy Graham may not be on the fantasy radar heading into drafts but could play a significant role Week 1 against the Lions. Graham has enjoyed a fantastic camp and is looking to prove that he still has something left in the tank. The veteran caught only 38 passes last season for 447 yards and three touchdowns for the Green Bay Packers, leading many to believe he is far past his prime. While Graham may not be a TE1 this season, he certainly should see plenty of action through the first few games. The veteran will especially carry some intriguing DFS value Week 1 against the Lions.

  • Jimmy Graham Impressing In Camp

    Chicago Bears tight end Jimmy Graham has looked like "hes been one of the best players on the field in camp," according to Bears beat writer Adam Hoge. The early reports in camp have indicated that Chicago's tight ends have been heavily involved in the offensive game plan through the first five practices. The veteran Graham signed a two-year deal after a disappointing season with Green Bay but has looked reinvigorated early on. Graham currently sits outside the top-10 rankings among tight ends in fantasy but early indications are that he could have a massive role early on in 2020. Whether Graham can return to Pro Bowl form is anyone's guess but the veteran is trending in the right direction.
