|As expected, Graham enjoyed a breakthrough season in 2011, catching 99 passes for 1,310 yards and 11 touchdowns. The scary part is that his production last year might just be the tip of the iceberg given his relative inexperience as a football player. Graham emerged as quarterback Drew Brees’ preferred option in the passing game, finishing the year 149 targets, good enough for 6th in the league. Graham has solid hands and enough speed to get deep as well as excellent ability to adjust to passes, making him a great option in the red zone. While Rob Gronkowski was clearly a fantasy beast in 2011, there is a strong argument that Graham has more upside than the Patriots tight end. While Gronkowski will almost surely be the first tight end taken in most fantasy drafts, Graham may end up representing better value as the second tight end off the board.

Seahawks TE uncertain for Week 1 but showing progress
|The next two weeks will be some of the biggest of his injury recovery for Jimmy Graham (knee). The Seattle Seahawks tight end is off the active/PUP list but has just under two weeks to prove he's ready for the Seahawks regular season opener against the Miami Dolphins. (247 Sports)|
FF Today's Take: HC Pete Carroll likes the way Graham looks, though the TE is still uncertain for Week 1. "He looked great in pregame didn't he?," Carroll said. "He was flying. He was really fired up. He ran a ton of sprints before that workout with throwing and catching. And then, he took all those plays. And then, he took the pregame warmup. He was lit up about it afterwards. He really felt good and that was a big step for him."

Rawls takes part in team drills; Prosise, Jimmy Graham do not
|Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls continues to do more at practice. This is the first time all summer he has participated in team drills. C.J. Prosise (hamstring) is practicing for the first time but has not participated in team drills. Jimmy Graham is out here but not participating in team drills. (Sheil Kapadia on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Rawls appears to be on the right track, but Christine Michael's emergence may keep him from living up to his fourth-round ADP. Prosise would seem to have the passing-down role in this offense locked up, but he'll need to take part in team drills at some point in order to guarantee it. Owners should treat anything Graham does this year as a bonus; the road back from a torn patellar tendon rarely comes without significant setbacks.

Rehabbing from ruptured patellar tendon
|RENTON, Wash. -- Seattle Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since rupturing his patellar tendon last November.
"There were some dark days," Graham said. "It's been eight months. It's been a constant eight months." Graham ran routes and caught passes from the quarterbacks during the first part of Wednesday's practice. Nothing he did required moving at full speed, and Graham stayed on the sideline once the offense and defense started going against each other. Coach Pete Carroll has said that Graham is on track to play in Week 1, barring a setback.
FF Today's Take: This is great news for Jimmy Graham and fantasy owners in deeper leagues. Nonetheless, this is the type of injury that can take awhile to overcome even after a player returns to the field. Keep expectations in check and monitor Graham's progress leading up until Week 1. Graham has tremendous touchdown upside for a tight end and can become a steady contributor to fantasy rosters if he returns to health in 2016.
| No practice for Rawls, Graham -- Thu Jul 28 5:10 pm --|
Seahawks believe RB, TE will be ready for Week 1
|Seahawks GM John Schneider: Thomas Rawls (ankle), Jimmy Graham (patellar tendon) won't practice Saturday. Team will bring them along slowly and is still deciding whether they'll start camp on PUP. But both players are on track to be ready for Week 1, (Sheil Kapadia on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Despite the recent public optimism, this should not come as a surprise. We're still a few weeks away from needing to be overly concerned about either player, although Rawls' recovery is a bit concerning from the standpoint his ankle still isn't 100 percent more than seven months after his injury. Rawls is a high-end RB2 if healthy (with obvious risk at the moment) while Graham should be considered a TE2 given the seriousness of his injury.
