Graham staying in Houston | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

TE Garrett Graham has agreed to a new 3-year deal with the Texans.  The former 4th-rounder has spent the first 4 seasons of his NFL career in Houston.  He set personal bests across the board in 2013 with 49 catches, 545 yards and 5 TDs.  As the Texans' lead TE over an 8-game stretch, he racked up 34 catches, 404 yards and 2 TDs.  He was fantasy’s #10 TE over that span.  Graham is certainly a capable pass-catcher but is not a special talent.  He'll battle for targets with TE Ryan Griffin in Houston.  It remains to be seen how big a role the TEs will play in new HC Bill O'Brien's passing attack.

The Broncos have signed TE Garrett Graham to a 1-year deal.  He's reuniting with HC Gary Kubiak, who was with Graham in Houston from 2010-2013.  After catching just 1 ball across those first 2 seasons, Graham posted lines of 28-263-3 and 49-545-5 in the next 2.  He's totaled just 22 receptions over the last 2 seasons, though, and turns 30 in August.  There's playing time up for grabs in Denver, but we'd bet on both Jeff Heuerman and Virgil Green over Graham.

Texans TE Garrett Graham (back) returned to practice on Wednesday.  It puts him on track to play against the Raiders this weekend.  Graham is a fine roster stash as a matchup play when bye weeks start to hit, but you should be able to do better for a Week 2 starter.

Texans TE Garrett Graham (back) is officially inactive for today’s game against the Redskins. C.J. Fiedorowicz and Ryan Griffin will operate as Houston’s top-2 TEs, but neither is a reliable fantasy option.

Texans TE Garrett Graham (back) is not expected to play against the Redskins today, according to NFL Network's Albert Breer.  Graham was listed as questionable but didn't practice at all this week, so he shouldn't be considered a lock to be ready for Week 2.  Rookie TE C.J. Fiedorowicz is expected to start in Graham's place today, with TE Ryan Griffin also seeing more action.  Neither guy is a recommended fantasy play.

Texans TE Garrett Graham (back) is a game-time decision for Sunday's opener against the Redskins, according to HC Bill O'Brien.  Graham did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday.  He could emerge as a spot starter this season but shouldn't be in Week 1 fantasy lineups.
