Graham wasn't good last season, but he did still finish as the TE 14 despite just two TD's. In fact, it's surprising he finished so high with how unlucky he was in the TD department. Graham caught just 4 of his 9 targets inside the 20 yardline, and just one of his 5 targets inside the 10. Had he scored just two more TD's, then he would have at worst finished as the TE 9 in fantasy. Graham is a solid 12th round TE if you miss out on the early and mid round TE's.

Most don't realize Graham finished with just two touchdowns last year, something we should never expect to happen again. Why? Throughout his nine-year career, he's caught a touchdown an average of every 13.4 targets. There's been just two occasions where he's averaged more than 15.8 targets. It was likely due to the fact that Aaron Rodgers had just 25 passing scores and finished with a career-low touchdown percentage. Year two should lead to more chemistry, and you should bet on Rodgers bouncing back.

Graham broke hearts last season, but there has never been a free agent acquisition in the Aaron Rodgers era who has succeeded in year one. Now that Graham knows the offense well, it is possible he finds a way to double-digit scores and posts an Eric Ebron like season.
