Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Graham has seen at least 5 targets in all but one game this season, and he's already scored four times in just six contests. Squaring off against a worse-than-average TE defense, Graham is fine to deploy as a TE1 in Week 7. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Over the past four games, Graham has seen 28 targets. He's clearly a part of this passing attack and he always has the potential to get his number called in the red zone. Fire up Graham as a mid-range TE1 this week in a fine matchup for opposing TEs. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Sure, Graham has at least five targets in 5-of-6 games, which is great for a tight end. However, he's topped 34 yards just once and has touchdowns masking that inefficiency. He is tied with Travis Kelce for the most targets inside the red zone (10) and ranks second in targets inside the five-yard line (4), so we have to factor that in, especially when Allen Robinson is going to be shadowed by Jalen Ramsey. The Rams have allowed just 5.43 yards per target to tight end, which is essentially what Graham has averaged, though tight ends have been funneled targets against them. They've faced 53 targets, the fifth-most in the league, which has allowed tight ends to produce. They've allowed three top-12 tight end performances, even though just one tight end (George Kittle) has topped 42 yards. It's similar to the way it always is with Graham; he's a touchdown-or-bust play, though he may see more targets than normal this week. Consider him a mid-to-high-end TE2. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Graham has had a bit of a rebirth early this season as the 7th ranked fantasy tight end. He is an upside TE1 against the Rams 20th ranked fantasy tight end defense.
