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.

Mo Alie-Cox An Easy Target As Cap Casualty

Friday, February 23, 2:30 PM

The Athletic's James Boyd writes that Indianapolis Colts tight end Mo Alie-Cox is an easy target if the team wishes to create more salary cap space this offseason. He's entering the final year of a three-year, $17.6 million contract extension that he signed in 2022. Alie-Cox is due the last $5.9 million of that in 2024, but none of it is guaranteed. The 30-year-old is the team's best blocking tight end and has recorded at least three touchdowns in each of the last three seasons, but he's not getting any younger and is unlikely to develop into a true No. 1 pass-catching tight end at this point of his career. Both Will Mallory and third-year tight end Jelani Woods, who missed all of 2023 with hamstring issues, give the Colts more upside at the position amid their current youth movement. Alie-Cox hasn't been much more than a low-upside, touchdown-dependent TE2 option for fantasy managers in deep leagues.
