Shark Bites

The Bears on Monday reached a 2-year, $16 million deal with TE Jimmy Graham, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Graham is a surprising addition at a somewhat surprising cost. His playing time and production fell off late last season, and he'll turn 34 midway through the coming campaign. Chicago also still has TE Trey Burton under contract, though he could be a cut candidate. The Bears' TE corps looks like a situation to avoid for 2020.

Recent Shark Bites

Saints TE Jimmy Graham was arrested on Friday night for suspicion of being under the influence of a controlled substance and resisting, delaying, and obstructing a police officer, TMZ reports. The team has since released a statement claiming that Graham had a "medical episode," believed to be a seizure, which resulted in him becoming disoriented. He was admitted to a hospital after being taken into custody and is now back with the team. We'll see where this goes, but Graham was already a long shot to be a 2023 fantasy factor.

The Saints signed TE Jimmy Graham to a one-year deal. Yeah, that Jimmy Graham. The 36-year-old hasn’t played since 2021 when he tallied only 14 catches with the Bears. We’re not counting on Graham to make a fantasy impact alongside Juwan Johnson and Foster Moreau.

Bears TE Jimmy Graham has been placed on the COVID list and will miss Sunday's game vs. the Bucs. He's seen just 3 targets all season, so there's no tangible fantasy impact here.

The Packers have released TE Jimmy Graham, saving $8 million against the 2020 salary cap. It was an easy decision with Graham just about out of gas. The 33-year-old's 38 catches and 447 yards this past season were both his lowest marks since his 2010 rookie campaign. He ranked 23rd in yards per route run and 26th in Pro Football Focus' receiving grades among 27 TEs that saw 50+ targets. We'll see where Graham lands on the free-agent market, but he's unlikely to have a fantasy impact. In Green Bay, meanwhile, the door is open for 2019 third-round TE Jace Sternberger to capture the lead job. Highlight him as an upside target in the later rounds of early best-ball drafts.

Packers TE Jimmy Graham (ankle) only got in a limited practice on Friday but isn’t listed on the final Week 7 injury report. This looks like a case of Green Bay getting the veteran TE some rest during the week. Graham should theoretically play a big role against the Raiders on Sunday with all of the Packers’ WR injuries — although he managed just 2 catches on 5 targets last week.
