Graham came down with a TD in his Bears' debut in Week 1, and most impressively, he saw seven targets in the process. It's a small sample size, but Graham still has the jump-ball upside he did in his prime, and he makes a mid-range TE2 against the Giants. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He turned seven targets into 25 yards in his Bears debut, though one of them was for a touchdown. He actually should've scored twice, but Graham mistimed his jump for the ball. Let me be clear: He looks like a soon-to-be 34-year-old tight end. But it's clear the Bears want to get him the ball, if possible. The Giants allowed just two tight ends last year to have at least 50 yards and a touchdown, and only one was a starter. Graham played against them and totaled just one catch for 16 yards, though he was with a different team and the Giants were under a different head coach/coordinator. Jabrill Peppers is a physical safety and won't allow Graham to push him around, which is part of the reason I'm fading Graham in this game. He's going to be touchdown-or-bust most weeks, so given the primary matchup with Peppers, who hasn't allowed a touchdown in his coverage since coming to the Giants (last year), I'm not recommending him as a streamer.We wondered if Drew Sample would be a bigger part of the passing game in his second year, but after seeing Uzomah tally five targets to Sample's one, we have to assume he's still the one to target among Bengals tight ends. The Browns linebacking and safety group is among the worst in the league, and that's who typically covers the tight end position. It's why we saw seven different tight ends finish as top-eight options against them last year, and their unit only got worse this offseason after losing all their starting linebackers, and then losing their second-round safety in training camp. It's no wonder Mark Andrews found his way into the end zone twice while collecting 58 yards on six targets last week. The problem is that there are a lot of mouths to feed on the Bengals offense, and the Browns do allow production on the ground. Because of that, Uzomah will be a sketchy streamer, but this matchup is a good one.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Jimmy Graham definitely proved that the TE position is a big part of Matt Nagy's offense with 7 targets in week one, but he looked rusty and mistimed a couple of jumps on throws that he should've brought in. With that being said, the way that he can produce for fantasy football is through his involvement in the red zone. He's still a mismatch in that portion of the field and he figures to be targeted heavily when the Bears are there. If you're looking for a TE replacement this week, Graham's most likely on your waiver wire and he could be a quality fill-in in this matchup. You can expect low-end TE1 production if he scores.
