Bears' Jimmy Graham: Finds end zone in playoff loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham caught two passes for 25 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' 21-9 loss to the Saints in the wild-card round.

Graham saw both of his targets on the last drive of a blowout loss and scored a toucdhown as time expired. On the season, he caught 50 passes for 453 yards and eight touchdowns, and he'll enter 2021 in the last year of his contract. Graham will likely continue to lose pass-catching opportunities to Cole Kmet, making him a marginal fantasy option whose success will be largely dependent upon scoring touchdowns.

Bears' Jimmy Graham: Quiet in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham caught two passes for five yards in the Bears' 35-16 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Graham was targeted just twice in a game during which the team threw 42 passes, and he was clearly the secondary tight end option behind teammate Cole Kmet, who was targeted eight times. After being a major component of the Bears offense during the first half of the season, he was consistently out-targeted by Kmet after the Week 11 bye. On the season, he caught 50 passes for 453 yards and eight touchdowns, and after the Bears finish their playoff run, he'll enter the last year of his contract, though he'll likely continue to lose opportunities to Kmet.

Bears' Jimmy Graham: Scores twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham caught four passes for 69 yards and two touchdowns in Chicago's 41-17 victory over the Jaguars on Sunday.

Even though Graham was fourth on the team with five targets, he was the preferred end-zone option for Mitch Trubisky, leading to his best fantasy performance of the season. Coming into this game, he was averaging 16 yards with one touchdown over the last five games, and he'll be a risky fantasy option in Week 17 against the Packers.

Bears' Jimmy Graham: Targeted three times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham caught two passes for 25 yards in Chicago's 33-27 victory over the Vikings on Sunday.

Graham received more targets than teammate Cole Kmet for the first time in three games, but Graham has posted just 80 yards and one touchdown over his last five contests. Therefore, he remains difficult to trust in Week 16 despite having an excellent matchup against the Jaguars.

Bears' Jimmy Graham: Cleared for Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham (hip) is active Week 15 against the Vikings.

While Graham registered a pair of limited practices this week, the expectation was that the veteran tight end would suit up. He'll indeed be available as a touchdown-dependent fantasy option, though it's worth noting he's been out-snapped by Cole Kmet in each of the past three weeks.

Bears' Jimmy Graham: Likely to suit up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham (hip), who is questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings, is expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The report notes that Graham looked good in practice this past week and appears ready to give it a go Sunday. However, from a fantasy perspective, it's worth noting that fellow tight end Cole Kmet has emerged as the Bears' top option at the position of late, logging seven targets in both of the last two games.

Bears' Jimmy Graham: Garners questionable designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears list Graham (hip) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

After beginning the week as a full practice participant, Graham downgraded to limited activity Thursday and Friday, prompting the Bears to give him a designation for their Week 15 contest. Even if he manages to gain clearance ahead of Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff, Graham could see his involvement in the offense dwindle further with Cole Kmet having seemingly usurped him as the Bears' top tight end. Graham has played fewer than half of the Bears' offensive snaps in each of the past three games, logging seven receptions for 55 yards and a touchdown on nine targets during that stretch.

December 17, 2020 04:20 PM
Bears' Jimmy Graham: Limited by hip injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham (hip) was limited at Thursday's practice.

After practicing fully Wednesday, Graham's downgrade in activity Thursday may just be maintenance-related, but his status now will be one to watch as the weekend approaches. He's been relatively quiet over the last four games -- seven catches for 55 yards on 11 targets -- but he salvaged his day this past Sunday against the Texans with his first TD since Week 9.

Bears' Jimmy Graham: Breaks scoring drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham caught four passes for 23 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' 36-7 victory over the Texans on Sunday.

Although Graham scored his second touchdown over the last eight games, he was targeted just four times while teammate Cole Kmet served as the clear receiving tight end with seven targets for the second week in a row. During the last four games, Graham has seen a total of 11 targets, making him a touchdown-dependent fantasy option.

Bears' Jimmy Graham: Shut out in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham failed to catch his lone target in Chicago's 34-30 loss to the Lions on Sunday.

After a solid start to the season, Graham has accounted for just 32 yards over his last three games while being out-targeted by rookie Cole Kmet during that time. In addition to his recent struggles, he scored just a single touchdown over the last six games while surpassing 34 yards on one occasion, making him difficult to trust during the fantasy playoffs.

Bears' Jimmy Graham: Four targets in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham caught three passes for 34 yards in Chicago's 41-25 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Graham failed to see a target until the game was well out of hand in the fourth quarter, but he ended up posting a decent yardage total. After a hot start to the season, he's failed to find the end zone in five of his last six games, and he's surpassed 34 receiving yards on only two occasions this season, making him a touchdown-dependent fantasy option.

Bears' Jimmy Graham: Disappearing act in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham was shut out on two targets in Chicago's 19-13 loss to Minnesota on Monday.

Graham was shut out for the first time this season, and almost every time the Bears found themselves in an obvious-passing situation, the Vikings brought heavy pressure, forcing Nick Foles into a number of errant throws, and Graham was rarely in the area where the quarterback was forced to throw. He's been held to 35 yards or fewer in six of his last seven games, and his ceiling is typically dependent upon him scoring touchdowns.

Bears' Jimmy Graham: Scores fifth touchdown of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham caught all six of his targets for 55 yards and a touchdown in Chicago's 24-17 loss to the Titans on Sunday.

After falling behind by double digits in the first half, the Bears were forced to throw the ball more than usual, helping Graham to his second-highest yardage total of the season while also grabbing a late touchdown after the outcome of the game had been decided. Through nine games, he's averaging just 34 yards, making him mostly a touchdown-dependent weekly lineup option.

Bears' Jimmy Graham: Listed as 'full' Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham (knee/hamstring) was listed as a full participant on Thursday's estimated injury report.

Meanwhile, rookie tight end Cole Kmet (groin) wouldn't have practiced if the Bears had held practice. If the TE group is down one player Sunday in Tennessee, Graham could be even more utilized than he has been this season. Through eight games, his offense snap share has ranged between 62 and 80 percent, which has translated to a 29-247-4 line on 49 targets.

Bears' Jimmy Graham: DNP on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham was held out of practice Wednesday with knee and hamstring injuries.

Prior to Wednesday's session, Graham frequently didn't take the field for the first practice of the week in what the Bears had usually terms as veteran days off. He now has a pair of injuries attached to his name, however, but thus far, the Bears haven't suggested his availability for Sunday's game in Tennessee is in any peril. Aside from four touchdowns, Graham has only put up 29 receptions for 247 yards over 49 targets through the Bears' first eight games.

Bears' Jimmy Graham: Quiet in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham caught two passes for 13 yards yards in Chicago's 26-23 overtime loss to the Saints on Sunday.

Although Graham was tied for second on the team with seven targets, he was consistently taking big hits from the New Orleans defenders, which caused him to struggle to secure a number of reception attempts. He's now scored just once over his last five games while failing to surpass 34 yards in any of those contests, and he remains a touchdown-dependent lineup option for fantasy managers.

Bears' Jimmy Graham: Targeted six times in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham caught five passes on six targets for 31 yards in Chicago's 24-10 loss to the Rams on Monday.

Graham was a non-factor while the game was close, but he was able to haul in four of his five passes in the second half to somewhat salvage his fantasy day. Even though the Bears were deep in the red zone on two different occasions, however, he didn't see any of Nick Foles' end zone targets. Graham's now posted between 31 and 34 yards in each of his last four games while finding the end zone once during that span, and although he has a moderate floor, his fantasy value is usually derived from his ability to score touchdowns.

Bears' Jimmy Graham: Fails to find end zone
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham caught five passes for 34 yards in the Bears' 23-16 victory over the Panthers on Sunday.

Graham continued to be heavily involved in the Bears' offense, as his eight targets trailed only Allen Robinson. Although he's typically very busy in the red zone, it was Cole Kmet who was the tight end on the receiving end of Chicago's only passing touchdown. Graham has now posted 33 or 34 yards in each of the last three games, but it's his ability to score touchdowns that affords him weekly fantasy upside.

Bears' Jimmy Graham: Finds end zone again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham caught three passes for 33 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' 20-19 win over the Buccaneers on Thursday.

Especially in the red zone, the Bears continue to feature Graham, often isolating him against cornerbacks when lining him up as an outside receiver, as they did on his touchdown reception. Although his yardage has been inconsistent on a weekly basis, he's now scored in three of five contests, making him a reasonable starting option in typical 12-team leagues.

Bears' Jimmy Graham: Targeted five times in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham caught four passes for 33 yards in Chicago's 19-11 defeat to the Colts on Sunday.

Graham was blanked in the first half, but after the Bears fell behind by double digits, they had to lean heavily upon the pass, and as a result, Graham ended up with a respectable five targets. He'll likely continue to be a factor when Chicago is in the red zone, but he's also averaging six targets per game, giving him a decent weekly floor for a tight end.
