2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
The writing might have been on the wall for those who paid attention to Seattle’s offense in recent seasons, but few could have predicted just how bad tight end Jimmy Graham would be from a fantasy standpoint. Graham finished last season with just 605 yards in his 11 starts prior to suffering a season-ending knee injury. Worse yet, he scored just two touchdowns. All this after Graham had been the prized off-season acquisition and the player who was supposed to be the team’s leading red zone threat.

The worst part about Graham’s first season in Seattle was the complete lack of consistency he showed. He started the season with two touchdowns in his first three games, but failed to score again in his final eight starts. Not only that, but he failed to reach 80 yards receiving in all but two games. In fact, he finished with 41 or fewer yards receiving in six of his 11 starts. That’s just not good enough for a player who was being selected as the No. 2 fantasy tight end.

Now that Graham appears to be nearly fully recovered, he will look to erase the 2015 season from his memory and return to the player who was one of the most dominant players in all of football. Fortunately for fantasy owners, the price is substantially lower now than it was heading in 2015, largely due to a serious patellar tendon injury. While his 10th round ADP might rise by the end of August, he’ll still likely be one of the last tight ends drafted in most leagues.

News From The Past 90 Days
DNP for Jimmy Graham on Thursday
Knee and back ailments
By: Doug Orth | Wed Sep 28, 7:45 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Jimmy Graham (knee/back) didn't practice. Earl Thomas was also out, but his absence is listed as non-injury-related. (710 ESPN Seattle)

FFToday's Take: It's never a good sign for a player to show up as a surprise DNP for a Thursday practice leading into a Sunday game, but this is probably going to be par for the course for him as he tries to be one of the first athletes ever to come all the way back from a torn patellar tendon. Luke Willson would be the next man up if Graham can't go in Week 4, but he is a low-end TE2 option at best.

Christine Michael to start; Rawls, Graham to play
Michael carries RB1 upside in Week 1
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 9, 8:15 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said he expects tight end Jimmy Graham to play on Sunday against the Dolphins. He also expects running back Thomas Rawls to play, but Christine Michael will get the start. (Seattle Times)

FFToday's Take: Rawls barely participated in pre-season games and will apparently be eased into the season while Michael gets the start. Michael has RB1 value this week against the Dolphins. It remains to be seen how much Graham (knee) will play. His questionable usages makes him a TE2.

Injury Wilson: Jimmy Graham has been "lights out"
TE on track to play Week 1
By: Doug Orth | Thu Sep 8, 8:45 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Russell Wilson said he and TE Jimmy Graham have been "lights out" together in practice. Thrown a ton of balls to him, lots of meetings also. (Liz Mathews on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: There's usually something very wrong when players and coaches are overly optimistic or hyping up their teammates, so we take this report worth a grain of salt until we see actual proof. As fans and former owners of Victor Cruz, Cadillac Williams and others can attest, it is very difficult to ever make it back from a torn patellar tendon. He should be treated as a TE2, one with a high chance of being limited or missing games all season long.

Injury TE Jimmy Graham practices in full Wednesday
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Aug 31, 4:43 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Tight end Jimmy Graham won’t play in the Seahawks’ preseason finale at Oakland, but he continues to make very encouraging progress in his comeback from the knee injury that ended his 2015 season. Graham, who has continued to ramp up his workload since coming off of the physically unable to perform list on Aug. 10, practiced fully this week in practice, head coach Pete Carroll said. “It’s a day-to-day thing to see how he recovers, but he’s doing great, and we’ll see what that means,” Carroll said. “We won’t know until late next week.” (

FFToday's Take: More positive news on the Jimmy Graham continues to give hope that the long time fantasy beast can make a modest rebound in 2016. His Week 1 status is still very much up in the air so his tenth round ADP shouldn't change much over the last week of the preseason.

Injury Jimmy Graham (knee) to be ready for Week 1?
Seahawks TE uncertain for Week 1 but showing progress
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 30, 11:48 am

Seattle Seahawks
The next two weeks will be some of the biggest of his injury recovery for Jimmy Graham (knee). The Seattle Seahawks tight end is off the active/PUP list but has just under two weeks to prove he's ready for the Seahawks regular season opener against the Miami Dolphins. (247 Sports)

FFToday's Take: HC Pete Carroll likes the way Graham looks, though the TE is still uncertain for Week 1. "He looked great in pregame didn't he?," Carroll said. "He was flying. He was really fired up. He ran a ton of sprints before that workout with throwing and catching. And then, he took all those plays. And then, he took the pregame warmup. He was lit up about it afterwards. He really felt good and that was a big step for him."

Injury Rawls, Prosise progressing
Rawls takes part in team drills; Prosise, Jimmy Graham do not
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 15, 5:20 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls continues to do more at practice. This is the first time all summer he has participated in team drills. C.J. Prosise (hamstring) is practicing for the first time but has not participated in team drills. Jimmy Graham is out here but not participating in team drills. (Sheil Kapadia on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Rawls appears to be on the right track, but Christine Michael's emergence may keep him from living up to his fourth-round ADP. Prosise would seem to have the passing-down role in this offense locked up, but he'll need to take part in team drills at some point in order to guarantee it. Owners should treat anything Graham does this year as a bonus; the road back from a torn patellar tendon rarely comes without significant setbacks.

Injury Jimmy Graham returns to practice
Rehabbing from ruptured patellar tendon
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Aug 10, 7:28 pm

Seattle Seahawks
RENTON, Wash. -- Seattle Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since rupturing his patellar tendon last November. "There were some dark days," Graham said. "It's been eight months. It's been a constant eight months." Graham ran routes and caught passes from the quarterbacks during the first part of Wednesday's practice. Nothing he did required moving at full speed, and Graham stayed on the sideline once the offense and defense started going against each other. Coach Pete Carroll has said that Graham is on track to play in Week 1, barring a setback. (

FFToday's Take: This is great news for Jimmy Graham and fantasy owners in deeper leagues. Nonetheless, this is the type of injury that can take awhile to overcome even after a player returns to the field. Keep expectations in check and monitor Graham's progress leading up until Week 1. Graham has tremendous touchdown upside for a tight end and can become a steady contributor to fantasy rosters if he returns to health in 2016.

Injury No practice for Rawls, Graham
Seahawks believe RB, TE will be ready for Week 1
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jul 28, 5:10 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Seahawks GM John Schneider: Thomas Rawls (ankle), Jimmy Graham (patellar tendon) won't practice Saturday. Team will bring them along slowly and is still deciding whether they'll start camp on PUP. But both players are on track to be ready for Week 1, (Sheil Kapadia on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Despite the recent public optimism, this should not come as a surprise. We're still a few weeks away from needing to be overly concerned about either player, although Rawls' recovery is a bit concerning from the standpoint his ankle still isn't 100 percent more than seven months after his injury. Rawls is a high-end RB2 if healthy (with obvious risk at the moment) while Graham should be considered a TE2 given the seriousness of his injury.
