Fantasy Impact:

While Graham is expected to play against the Vikings, he may not be a wise fantasy option in the semi-finals. Despite a terrific, rejuvenate start to his season, Graham has seen fewer than four targets in each of his past four outings. And while he managed to snap a three-game scoreless streak last week with his 4/23/1 line against the Texans, Cole Kmet has been the tight end to covet from Chicago. Kmet has drawn seven targets in back-to-back games while playing in 85.7% of the team's offensive snaps and running 24+ routes in those outings. He also played in 79% of the team's snaps and ran 33 routes back in Week 12. In that three-game period, Kmet dominated snaps and routes over Graham, who played in fewer than 50% of the team's snaps and ran fewer than 17 routes. While Graham has drawn 11 targets in his past four games, Kmet has drawn 14 in his past two. Volume-wise, Kmet brings fantasy consideration for PPR leagues in Week 15. Graham needs to score to return value.
