Is Graham suddenly sharing the work with Cole Kmet and Demetrius Harris? He saw a respectable six targets last week but knowing Kmet and Harris combined for five themselves is worrisome. Looking at the routes, we shouldn't be too concerned, as Graham has run 59 routes the last two weeks, while Kmet has run 20, and Harris has run 15 of them. We have another revenge game narrative as Graham will be going against his former team. He's only played them once since his departure, totaling three catches for 34 yards. This year, it's been a good time to attack the Saints with tight ends, as teams have chosen to target their tight ends 27.6 percent of the time, which is the highest percentage in the league. Production has followed, as 24.8 percent of the production they've allowed to running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends has gone to the tight end position. They have already allowed five different tight ends to finish as top-10 options against them, with the only one who didn't was Ian Thomas, who saw one target. All in all, they've allowed the second-most fantasy points per game to tight ends, and Graham is seeing a respectable 15.1 percent target share. He can be considered a low-end TE1 this week, who can't be trusted as more than that with Foles' play as of late.We're starting to see more of a timeshare between these two tight ends, as we watched Dissly trail Olsen in routes 36-29 last week, which is a very small gap. It's something to monitor, as Dissly hadn't run more than 14 routes in the first five games. Don't forget, he was coming off an Achilles injury, so the recovery was a long one. It's not a shock to see Dissly see a season-high four targets last week. The 49ers have faced an average of just 6.0 targets per game to tight ends, and on those targets, they've allowed just 1.55 PPR points per target, which ranks as the eighth-lowest mark in the league. There have been five tight ends who've seen four-plus targets, but just two of them have topped 22 yards. I'm not big on either of these tight ends until we see one emerge as the clear-cut leader, and from the trend we saw last week, it might be Dissly.
