Jimmy Graham Note

Did you know that the Bears didn't have a 100-yard tight end last year? Let me be clear... I'm not talking about one game. I'm talking about all season. Their leading tight end was J.P. Holtz, who caught seven passes for 91 yards. That will change with Graham, but it's tough to get excited when you know that the most targets a Bears tight end saw last year was four. The Lions were a defense that I'd consider middle of the pack against tight ends last year, as they allowed the 15th-most fantasy points, 7.81 yards per target (10th-most), and 1.76 PPR points per target (14th-most) to the position. Despite there being 10 tight ends who saw five or more targets, they allowed just five top-12 tight end performances on the year. Graham is starting over with a new team and didn't post more than 65 yards in a single game last year. He's still a threat in the red zone, so there's always a chance at a touchdown, but I wouldn't bet on it just yet. He should be considered a TE2 who's touchdown dependent.
