2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
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.

News From The Past 90 Days
Josh Hill slated for bigger role     -- Wed Jul 29 12:55 pm --

But Sean Payton nixes Jimmy Graham comparison
ESPN's Mike Triplett reports that third-year pro Josh Hill will play a much bigger role after catching 14 passes for 176 yards and five touchdowns last year. But it won't be the "Jimmy Graham role," which didn't really exist before Graham emerged in New Orleans. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: We figured that Hill would play a more prominent role, but it appears Sean Payton is doing what he can to throw water on the idea that he'll fill Graham's shoes in the offense. Hill caught 14 or 20 targets and five TDs last season -- a respectable total, and the 6-5, 250-pound beast is still slated to be the primary red zone TE. Ben Watson and Orson Charles are also projected to make the 53-man roster and see targets, but Hill remains the best fantasy option moving forward.
Graham, Lockett among offseason standouts     -- Mon Jun 29 4:25 pm --

Ex-Saint TE, third-round pick catch Carroll's eye
When the offseason program ended Thursday, Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll pointed to two players who stood out to him through the rookie camp and OTAs. The first one is rookie wide receiver Tyler Lockett. "(Lockett) has a lot of responsibilities. Hes going after this return job, hes inside playing in the slot and been outside. Weve just thrown everything at him because he seems to be able to handle it," Carroll said. The other standout for Carroll is TE Jimmy Graham. (Graham is) a great kid. Hes as hard a worker as we could hope to get. ... He loves the challenge and coming to a new setting and having to prove himself. Hes feeding off that." (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Lockett is going to fly under the radar in redraft leagues that don't reward owners for return yards simply because the Seahawks once again don't figure to provide enough volume to make their receivers worthy of starting consideration in fantasy. The same lack of passing-game volume is expected to hinder Graham, although certainly not to the same degree. The three-time Pro Bowler will immediately become Russell Wilson's top target and should be good for at least 10 touchdowns, even if his other receiving numbers take a slight hit.
