Green Bay Packers tight end Jimmy Graham looked much better this week than he did in the season opener. Graham had six catches for 96 yards against the Minnesota Vikings. He figures to be one of the main targets for quarterback Aaron Rodgers on third downs and late in games. Graham figures has a favorable matchup in week 3 against the Washington Redskins. Look for Graham to be a top five scoring tight end this week.
Green Bay Packers new addition at tight end Jimmy Graham was held in check against the Chicago Bears. Graham only had eight yards on two receptions. Part of the reason for his lack in production was because of the Bears pass rush. Graham was used a lot in blocking during the game as the Bears were putting to much pressure on Aaron Rodgers. Graham will have a similar matchup in week two against the Minnesota Vikings, but don't let that discourage you from starting him in your leagues.
Green Bay Packers tight end Jimmy Graham will see his first extended playing time with Aaron Rodgers during a Week 1 matchup against the Chicago Bears. There are a lot of uncertainties heading into this game surrounding Graham. Green Bay has never relied heavily on tight ends in their offense. However, Green Bay also has a pretty shallow core of receivers so they may be forced to utilize Graham more heavily. Additionally, Graham figures to be the best red-zone threat in Green Bay which could further increase his production. Chicago has a tough defense this year, so it may not be the best matchup for Graham. He can should still be viewed as a solid fantasy option at tight end in Week 1 on account of his past production, but the range of possible outcomes are all over the place.
