Jimmy Graham Looks To Extend Touchdown Streak To Four Games

Wednesday, December 20, 4:19 PM

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.

Darren Waller Still Considering Retirement

Saturday, March 2, 2:40 PM

New York Giants tight end Darren Waller said on Friday that he is "still undecided" on if he is going to continue his playing career in 2024. A previous report on Friday suggested that while Waller had considered retirement after last season, he was expected to return this year. The 31-year-old dealt with more hamstring issues in his first year in the Big Apple and finished with a disappointing 52 catches on 74 targets for 552 yards and only one touchdown in 12 games played. He's due to make $10.5 million in base salary in 2024 and count $14 million against the salary cap. The Giants have no intention of making him a cap casualty. The only other tight end on the roster with substantial playing time is Daniel Bellinger, who is set to enter his third season in 2024. At this point in his career, Waller is an extreme injury risk as a TE1 in fantasy.
