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.

Pat Freiermuth Could Benefit From New Offensive Coordinator

Wednesday, January 31, 12:31 PM

The addition of new offensive coordinator Arthur Smith bodes well for Pittsburgh Steelers tight ends Pat Freiermuth and Darnell Washington. From 2021 to 2023 when Smith was the head coach of the Atlanta Falcons, they ran the most plays with multiple tight ends on the field (1,549), while the Steelers ran only 844 plays with multiple TEs, ranking 22nd in the league. Smith was inconsistent in using Kyle Pitts after his 1,000-yard rookie season, but Smith's scheme could help Freiermuth and Washington get more involved in 2024. The team's QB issues didn't help his cause, but Freiermuth had his worst season in his third year with Pittsburgh in 2023, catching 32 passes for only 308 yards and two touchdowns in 12 regular-season games. However, the 25-year-old finished the year strong and could bounce back in 2024 with better QB play.
