Jimmy Graham Considering Retirement?

Free-agent tight end Jimmy Graham wrote on his Instagram account that he's "unsure of what the future holds" after "things ended rather quickly after the season." The 37-year-old returned to the New Orleans Saints last year and played in the NFL after sitting out in 2022 and found the end zone four times on his six catches on the season. Graham only racked up 39 receiving yards in 13 games (two starts). The five-time Pro Bowler was one of the best at his position in his prime with the Saints and Seattle Seahawks earlier in his career, but the 13-year veteran is nearing the end and could officially hang up his cleats this offseason if he doesn't get picked up by another team. If this is the end for Graham, he'd finish his successful NFL career with 719 career catches (1,115 targets) for 8,545 receiving yards and 89 touchdowns in 197 career regular-season games.

Jimmy Graham Looks To Extend Touchdown Streak To Four Games

New Orleans Saints veteran tight end Jimmy Graham has now scored a touchdown in three straight games, and draws the right matchup in Week 16 to potentially extend his streak to four. The Los Angeles Rams have surrendered the fifth-most fantasy points per game to the tight end position and are tied for the second-most touchdowns given up to tight ends in 2023 (seven). With that being said, Graham cannot be trusted in fantasy lineups given that his highest snap count over the last three weeks was 16%. Graham has averaged just 1.7 targets per game over the course of his streak. Taking an anytime touchdown prop bet (+500) would be fun, but given his low volume and snap share his floor of zero points is a very possible outcome.

Jimmy Graham Grabs Touchdown In Third-Straight Game

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham has proven to be a valuable addition in his return to the team which he spent the prime of his career. While the 37-year-old primarily operates as a red zone target, he has been succeeding at his job as of late. Graham caught two passes for nine yards and a touchdown in the win over the New York Giants on Sunday, marking his third-straight game with a score. Graham is touchdown-dependent and is not going to put up significant yardage (season-high of 16 yards in Week 14), and therefore should not be rostered.

Jimmy Graham Looks To Extend Touchdown Streak In Week 15

New Orleans Saints veteran tight end Jimmy Graham has been seldom used this season, but the 37-year-old has now scored touchdowns in back-to-back weeks. With Chris Olave (ankle) trending towards missing Week 15's matchup with the New York Giants, there will be plenty of targets to go around. Graham is a clear touchdown-or-bust option and should absolutely be avoided in lineups in the fantasy playoffs, but could be a sneaky low-cost DFS play as Derek Carr has looked his way in the red zone in recent weeks.

Jimmy Graham Extends Touchdown Streak

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham has re-emerged as a red zone threat, having now logged a touchdown in back-to-back games. The tight end situation in New Orleans is ugly for fantasy purposes, with Graham, Juwan Johnson, and Foster Moreau splitting time, along with Taysom Hill occasionally lining up as a tight end. While Graham has two touchdowns over the last two games, his low usage outside of the red zone is not enough for him to be considered in fantasy lineups.

Jimmy Graham Logs Touchdown In Loss

New Orleans Saints veteran tight end Jimmy Graham caught just his second pass of the season on Sunday in the 33-28 loss to Detroit. Both of Graham's receptions have gone for touchdowns, with the latest being a 6-yard touchdown grab from quarterback Derek Carr. Graham remains off of the fantasy radar given his very minimal usage this season.

Kendre Miller Active, Jimmy Graham A Healthy Scratch

New Orleans Saints rookie running back Kendre Miller (illness) is officially active in Week 9 against the Chicago Bears, but veteran tight end Jimmy Graham is a healthy scratch. Miller entered Sunday's game as questionable after popping up on Friday's injury report with an illness. He will be active in the Big Easy, but he's off the starting fantasy radar while being well behind RBs Alvin Kamara and Jamaal Williams in the Saints' backfield. Graham will now miss his second straight game after sitting out the Week 8 win over the Indianapolis Colts due to an illness. The 36-year-old is not on the fantasy radar while being buried on the Saints' TE depth chart. Graham's only reception in 2023 went for an eight-yard touchdown in his return to the NFL this year.

Jimmy Graham Could Split Tight End Work In Week 5

New Orleans Saints veteran tight end Jimmy Graham drew a starter role in Week 4 against Tampa Bay but was not targeted and did not produce any statistics in the blowout loss. Juwan Johnson (calf) has not practiced this week, although Foster Moreau (ankle) is back to full participation and will likely split work with Graham. In a tough matchup against New England, no Saints tight end should be started in fantasy.

Jimmy Graham Makes Saints 53-Man Roster

New Orleans Saints veteran tight end Jimmy Graham made the team's final 53-man roster heading into the 2023 regular season. The five-time Pro Bowl looked washed up in his last NFL season in 2021 with the Chicago Bears, when he had a career-low 14 receptions for 167 yards and three touchdowns on 23 targets in 15 games (six starts). The 36-year-old was a long shot to make an NFL comeback with his former team, especially after he had a medical episode on Aug. 19. Against all odds, though, Graham has impressed the coaching staff in recent weeks and caught three passes for 34 yards and a touchdown in the preseason finale last weekend. It's a cool story for Graham with the team he began his career with, but he'll have zero fantasy appeal while buried on the TE depth chart behind Juwan Johnson, Foster Moreau and Taysom Hill.

Jimmy Graham Catches Touchdown For Saints

New Orleans Saints veteran tight end Jimmy Graham started Sunday's preseason finale. He caught a touchdown pass from Jameis Winston, securing three receptions for 34 yards on four targets. After a year off of football, Graham eagerly awaits Tuesday to see if he will make New Orleans' initial 53-man roster. The Saints have depth in the tight end room, led by Juwan Johnson and Foster Moreau. Graham has to beat out second-year tight end Lucas Krull, who also had an impressive preseason performance, for the third tight end slot. The veteran looked like his old self catching a touchdown in a Saints uniform, and he will be fun to follow this season if he makes the roster. That being said, he should not be rostered in fantasy. If he makes the roster, he is likely a depth piece behind Johnson and Moreau.

Jimmy Graham To Practice Soon

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham is expected to return to practice soon after the veteran suffered a medical episode last Friday. Graham did not practice on Tuesday but head coach Dennis Allen told reporters that the tight end could be back at practice as soon as Wednesday. The 36-year-old's best days are well behind him but he could still emerge as a red-zone weapon for the Saints in the 2023 season.

Jimmy Graham Recovering Well

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham (illness) is reportedly recovering well after his medical episode on Friday, according to head coach Dennis Allen. He won't suit up for Sunday's preseason contest, but is with the team. The details of his episode are unknown, so it's unclear how long Graham is going to be sidelined. The 36-year-old did not play at all last season, but signed with the Saints this offseason. His next chance to play will be August 27 against the Houston Texans in the final preseason game.

It's unclear what exactly happened, but it is a situation worth monitoring. The 36-year-old did not play in 2022 but signed with the organization in late July this offseason.
