Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Graham joins Chicago after two frustrating seasons with Green Bay where he was criminally under-utilized. Graham's recent struggles are well known, and many seem to have forgotten about his elite seasons in New Orleans and his final two years with New Orleans from 2016-17, where he averaged 735 yards and 8 TDs. Chicago's receiving corps has a dearth of talent and quality options, and Graham has a chance at a bounceback campaign in 2020. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
There wasn't a single Bears tight end who recorded 100 yards last year. No, I'm not talking about a game. I'm talking about the entire season. Signing Graham isn't something they should've done to solve that issue. He'll be 34 years old in November and has averaged just 6.5 yards per target the last three years, and that's despite playing with Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers. At 6-foot-6 and 260 pounds, he can still come down with a jump ball from time-to-time, but he's not someone you should hinge your fantasy season on. He's a streamer, at best.He was a popular late-round pick earlier this offseason, but after he was placed on the COVID list and forced to miss out on training camp, he's falling further down draft boards, and most of the time not being drafted at all. Packers tight ends have failed to eclipse 103 targets combined in six of the last seven years. It typically takes 80-plus targets for a tight end to finish in TE1 territory without tons of touchdowns, and though Rodgers has thrown plenty of those, his tight ends haven't combined for more than nine touchdowns in each of those seven seasons. This would be Sternberger's first trip into the starting lineup, so it's tough to expect much from a young tight end, even though I did like him as a prospect last year. He's someone that you'll be able to use as a streamer from time-to-time, but he won't be your every-week solution at tight end.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Jimmy Graham was awful in Green Bay with superstar Aaron Rodgers and very little opposition so it's hard to see him fight back in the stuttering Bears attack with Nick Foles or Mitchell Trubisky. While he's clearly the Bears TE over Cole Kmet (who will mostly block), he's still not worth drafting in all but the deepest of leagues.Jace Sternberger is taking over the vacant Jimmy Graham role in Green Bay and that has some serious value given the aging veteran received received the third most targets from Aaron Rodgers last season. On the downside, that was only 60 targets for a TE21 finish and Sternberger himself had just one target until the playoffs. He's got a lot of potential and you can drop him after a week or two if the season doesn't start well, but he's very much a late round dart throw who is no guarantee to start.
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
Graham once again finds himself on a new team, this time the Chicago Bears. Gauging Graham.s potential is difficult considering we don't know who will start at QB for the Bears. If it's Trubisky, I'd avoid Graham but if Foles wins the job, Graham becomes a lot more interesting. Make sure to keep an eye on the QB situation in Chicago before drafting Graham.Sternberger is my favorite breakout candidate amongst all young TE's right now. The Packers added zero talent at the WR position and coach Matt Lafleur has singled out Sternberger as someone who will be key for their offense in 2020. I wouldn't trust him as my only TE, but definitely a worthwhile bench stash.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Graham was brought in by the Bears this offseason and given quite a bit of money. He'll be involved in this offense, but with the addition of Cole Kmet in the draft, it's unlikely to lead to consistent fantasy production. At his age, Graham's nothing more than a low-end TE2 this year.There's a very realistic chance that Sternberger finishes the year second on this team in targets. The Packers appear to be heading towards heavy 12-personnel and Sternberger is never going to come off the field. Adams will see 160+ targets this season, but the ball has to go somewhere else, right? Sternberger's a fine dart throw at the TE position and he has the talent to maximize on his opportunity. If you don't end up drafting him in a deep league, make sure to keep an eye on him on your waiver wire.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
It's hard to imagine Graham clawing his way back into being fantasy relevancy this year. Despite the lack of a second option behind Davante Adams, Graham barely made any noise last year for the Packers, finishing 22nd in 1/2 PPR points among tight ends. Now in what was a stagnant offense last year and with several other tight ends on the roster, it would be surprising if Graham found a way to factor in significantly. Ignore him in all leagues but deeper formats that award bonus points to tight ends.
