2012 Pros and Cons


(+) Graham is easily Drew Brees' favorite target, as evidenced by his 99 catches on 149 targets last year (Colston only had 107 targets)

(+) With Meachem gone and a rookie WR replacing him - Jimmy should see even MORE targets this season (149 led all TEs)

(+) 17 yards short of the record for most receiving yards in a season by a tight end (Gronkowski out-gained him for the record in the last game of the season)

(+) Tall, fast and not afraid to go across the middle

(+) Brees knows how to throw it high where only Jimmy can come down with it…and he always does

(+) Red Zone BEAST

(+) One of only 12 tight ends in NFL history to have 11 or more touchdowns in a season

(+) PPR STUD - Had four or more receptions in every single game in 2011

(–) If Brees doesn't sign, his fantasy value plummets

(–) He won’t go under the radar this year and with the Saints being a heavy passing team, he’s sure to get a bunch double-teams this season

(–) Could be asked to block more with All-Pro G Carl Nicks gone and a move toward trying to get RB Mark Ingram more involved in the offense

(–) Will the Saints move to a more balanced offense this season?

Pete Carroll said Jimmy Graham's (knee) rehab "sounds really good."


Pyro's take: Pete Carroll responded when asked about Jimmy Graham's rehabilitation. "“It sounds really good,’’ Carroll said. “He’s thrilled to be off the crutches and is getting going. He’s very dedicated to the process of it and is doing some cool, innovative things. He’s doing all the stuff that you can possibly do to get well.’’

Pete Carroll said Jimmy Graham back with the team


Pyro's take: According to John Boyle via Twitter "Pete Carroll said Jimmy Graham and Marshawn Lynch are both back with the team now. No timeline on Lynch yet, still week-to-week. #Seahawks"

Pete Carroll said Jimmy Graham (knee) should be recovered in time for the 2016 season.


Pyro's take: Bob Condotta has reported via Twitter "Carroll says Jimmy Graham should be recovered in time for 2016 season."

A torn patellar tendon is among the worst injuries an athlete can suffer. Graham is facing a tough recovery process that should last well into training camp. Even if he gets back in time for Week 1, Graham is unlikely to be as effective coming off the devastating injury. Graham is facing an uphill climb to be a productive player in 2016.--Per Rotoworld

Jimmy Graham was held to three catches for 41 yards on eight targets


Pyro's take: Another poor outing for Jimmy Graham, even though he had two red zone targets. He hasn't scored since week three and has only tow touchdowns. He still makes a starter for the tight end department.

Jimmy Graham caught 2-of-5 targets for 31 yards


Pyro's take: One week good, and the next he stumbles. I am sure this is not what Seattle or fantasy owners thought when being part of the team. Seattle won, but inside Graham has to be fuming.

Pete Carroll wants Jimmy Graham involved more


Pyro's take: "We’d love to get more," said head coach Pete Carroll. "We’d love to get more from everybody. I’d love to get the ball in his hands more. He did well in this game, but we could use more. We only completed 15 passes in this game, so we need to get more activity out of him, just like we need to get more out of the other guys too. But he’s working hard at it."

Graham is averaging just 5.4 targets through his first five games as a Seahawk. He averaged 8.8 per week as a Saint from 2011-14. The impetus is on Carroll to change the game plan, not Graham to get more open.

Graham unhappy being a Seahawk


Pyro's take: According to Bleacher Report Jimmy Graham is very unhappy being a Seahawk. He has gone to say he is "pissed off" and "hates" his role with the Seahawks. Players have also attested to this situation.

Players have stated Graham has mentioned he "hates what's happening in Seattle" where he's "barely looked at in the passing game."

Through two games, Graham has just 10 targets, which is 15th among tight ends. With Russell Wilson throwing over 30 passes per game its difficult to see that Jimmy Graham has become a non-factor in the offense. To make matters worse the Seahawks are now 0-2.

Snap Counts

Jimmy Graham played on 55-of-71 (77.4 percent) of the snaps in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. Obviously, this was much better than the 56.1 percent he had last week. He ran a season high 46 routes, as the Saints tried to play catch-up with the Panthers all game, but only caught three of eleven targets.

Pyro's take: As long as Graham is running routes and being involved in the offense, an owner needs to keep plugging him in, even if he has struggled of late and hasnt performed his usual Graham self.

Not Targeted

Somewhere along the line the New Orleans Saints and Drew Brees forgot about Jimmy Graham. Drew Brees tossed five touchdowns, zero to Graham, Bress also completed 19 of his 27 pass attempts, zero to Graham. The lock-down on Graham freed up nine receivers who caught at least one pass.

"For me it's all about the W's," said Graham, who also was held without a catch vs. Detroit earlier this season. "I don't care if it's zero catches, 10 catches or 20, as long as you win."

Graham mentioned how the Steelers were able to shut him down. "Usually (defenders) wait until I break," said Graham. "(Polamalu and Allen) are smart players. I can tell that they're watching a lot of film and looking at tendencies and formations and splits."

"Literally they would just undercut all of my routes," Graham said. "We'll watch film and we'll look at ways we can expose that. That's just how it is."

Pyro's take: Yes, he probably either wrecked your fantasy week or had a large hand in it, but it was just a bad day at the office, and in no way should he be benched.

Mike Triplet has reported via twitter that "TE Jimmy Graham officially listed as questionable, but he practiced all week on limited basis, so seems likely he'll play."

Pyro's take: If he played last week, well somewhat played last week, he will this week. Look for him to be more involved, and safe to put into your lineups.

Situational Use

Jimmy Graham is a possible play this Sunday. It will be a game time decision, and at best the coaches are saying he will only be used in red zone opportunities. “I think (coach) Sean (Payton) might try to see how I’m doing on Sunday and maybe work me before the game to see where I’m at,” Graham, who was limited in Friday’s practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday, said. “As of right now, I don’t know.”

Speaking on the red zone opportunities: “Who doesn’t just want the ball in the red zone,” Graham said. “If I could do that for the next 20 years, I would do that, but that’s not how it works for tight ends.”

Pyro's take: I would avoid this mess altogether unless he is your only tight end. If he does play and used only when the team is in the red zone, then its still a risky situation. I don't think he is going to play, as they dont want to further injure their future tight end.

Possibly Out

It doesnt look like this will be the week that Jimmy Graham returns to the line-up. He has not practiced at all this week, and his shoulder will most likely keep him out. Graham is having his prototypical year thus far even catches for 75 yards over the first five games of the season.

Pyro's take: Lets assume Graham is out, how are the Saints going to attack the defense this week? According to Evan Woodbury via Nola.com "The Saints could choose to reduce the number of multiple tight end packages and go with more four-receiver looks against Detroit. That would mean increased snaps for Brandin Cooks, Marques Colston, Kenny Stills and Robert Meachem. It could also mean the Saints choose to activate a fifth receiver on game day -- either Joe Morgan or Nick Toon."

They can also use back-up tight end Ben Watson, who has good hands. Also, available are Josh Hill, and recent tight end acquisition Tom Crabtree.

Graham Cracker

Jimmy Graham injured his shoulder on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Graham played a few snaps in the second quarter obvious pain but was ultimately sent to the locker room after talking with Payton and a team doctor.

Graham wasn't able to go at full speed, and taken out of the game for precautionary measures. "The key is being able to function at full speed," Payton said. "So I think we were smart and got a chance to take a peek (at the shoulder) and decided we were going to wait."

Graham's absence pushed Ben Watson into action "My role and Josh's role expanded," Watson said. "But the play calls were still the same. Our coaches were still very aggressive and called the same plays as if Jimmy were in there."

Pyro's take: Jimmy Graham is only reported to have a shoulder sprain, which arrives at a great time, due to his bye week. If for some weird reason, Graham is unable to go in two weeks, Ben Watson would start in his place. Watson is a 10-year veteran, and is a good receiver for the tight end position.

Graham and Saints beat Deadline -Sign Deal

The New Orleans Saints and Pro Bowl tight end Jimmy Graham have agreed to a four-year, $40 million deal that includes $21 million guaranteed.

Pyro's take: Fantasy owners rejoice as the best tight end in the league will remain in one of the best situations for at least the next four seasons. Drew Brees and Sean Payton remain committed to getting the matchup nightmare the ball and making him one of the most valuable commodities in the NFL.

Graham's deal makes him the highest paid TIGHT END in the NFL (ever) and het gets more guaranteed cash than any other tight end before him. As long as Drew Brees stays under center Graham should reap the rewards of this deal on and off the field for seasons to come.

As for his fantasy value it remains as high as ever, look for him to be taken in the late season or early first of drafts this season and help carry your team to fantasy glory.

Jimmy signs new contract

Jimmy Graham abd the Saints have met somewhere in the middle, upon Graham signing his new deal. The New Orleans Saints did not want to franchise tag him, and Graham wanted a raise. The new deal is worth $40M over 4 years which includes $21M guranteed. Graham went on his twitter account to make the announcement

Jimmy Graham @TheJimmyGraham
It's official I'm bleeding black and gold this morning! Thank you WhoDatNation for all the support.

The bright spots is that Graham can now play without the thoughts of getting injured, and the Saints have saved some dollar bills, by not having to sign him in the free-agency market.

"They avoid the $7 million cap hit Graham's deal would have exacted and gain payroll flexibility for the upcoming season. They also avoid the potential long-shot risk of Graham being ruled a wide receiver by judges in his wide receiver/tight end grievance hearing appeal. That's a potential $5 million risk the Saints don't need to take."

Pyro's take: This is great news for the Saints and the Graham family. As for fantasy owners, you will get the same Jimmy Graham that puts him above all other tight ends, it would of just been nice to see more edge as he would have really loved to explode the market next year as a free-agent, meaning, utter annihilation on opposing defenses, but no worries, he will still be a one-man weapon.

Tag, you're it!

"Confirming it's officially Franchisefriday... TAG ... I guess I'm it..." - @TheJimmyGraham

Pyro's take: Good news for fantasy owners, is that he'll be catching passes from Drew Brees for another season. Bad news, he may not be a happy camper if that tag's dollar worth is linked to the TE position and not the WR position he claims he's playing for the Saints. The difference in $ there is about $6.7 million for TE's vs. 11.5 million for WRs.

For you, the person that wears his Chinese-made knock-off jersey, the good outweighs the bad. Yet for the soon-to-be-super-rich Jimmy Graham, I guess 2014 isn't going to be that year. Seems crazy that the guy is a bonafide first-rounder in most fantasy drafts this year... he's just that good.

Graham misses practice and status for week 8 uncertain

Jimmy Graham (foot) missed Wednesday's practice a little more than a week after leaving the game against the New England Patriots.

Adam SchefterVerified account ‏@AdamSchefter

Had Saints played Sunday, it would have been difficult for TE Jimmy Graham to play with his foot injury. Status for Sunday vs BUF uncertain.

Pyro's take: Graham may end up sitting this game out, as the Saints likely will not need his services to take care of business against the Bills. If Graham plays then you will play him, but he may be a game time decision. It will be interesting to see if he is able to practice this week, even if a limited practice.

Jimmy undergoing an MRI

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham is getting an MRI for an injured foot, according to multiple reports. The results of the MRI are not yet known.

Graham appeared to injure his foot in the second half of Sunday's game against the New England Patriots. He went to the sidelines where trainers looked at the foot, and briefly rejoined the game after having it taped. He ultimately went to the locker room and didn't finish the game.

Pyro's take: Graham had as bad a day as possible yesterday, going without a catch and getting injured taboot. Jimmy has been a one man wrecking crew to this point, so all of his owners are waiting anxiously for good news, including myself. The silver lining is that the Saints are off next week, which will give the king of tight ends some time to heal up.

Get well Jimmy!!!
