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.

Zach Ertz Signs With Lions

Monday, January 22, 12:16 PM

Three-time Pro Bowl tight end Zach Ertz is signing with the Detroit Lions on Monday, according to sources. Ertz will start out on the team's practice squad, with plans for the team to elevate him to the 53-man active roster for the NFC Championship game on Sunday night against the San Francisco 49ers. The 33-year-old veteran was cut by the Arizona Cardinals in November and went unclaimed on waivers. Ertz will join the Lions after Brock Wright suffered a fractured forearm during the Divisional Round win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. Rookie Sam LaPorta, who led all tight ends in fantasy points during the regular season, will continue to be one of quarterback Jared Goff's favorite targets in the NFC Championship, but Ertz will give the Lions some experience as a backup to LaPorta.
