Tight End, Jimmy Graham, Green Bay Packers $4,500
Jimmy Graham in Week 1 laid an egg in his Packers debut. We all wondered how and when this giant red zone target would be utilized and pondered the fantasy football potential he could have with arguably the games best quarterback in Aaron Rodgers. We have seen the potential these two can have. Look for Rodgers big play ability to find Graham’s nose for the end zone in Week 4.
Through three games Graham has been targeted a total of 19 times snagging 13 receptions and 148 total yards. His Week 4 matchup against the Buffalo Bills and their 18th-ranked defense against the pass is enticing. Graham has averaged 6.3 targets a game, hauling in 4.3 receptions and adding 49.3 receiving yards a game. Graham will continue to trend up as the Packers offense gets in a groove.
Last week against the Redskins second ranked defense Graham snagged five of seven targets for 45 total yards. Graham has yet to find the end zone. Week 4 is a perfect matchup at Lambeau field in front of his home crowd to break the touchdown ice. In the preseason we saw Rodgers and Graham connect for a touchdown and it was a thing of beauty.
Through three games the Bills defense has allowed 256.7 passing yards a game, 80 rushing yards, 336.7 total yards and 28 total points. Aaron Rodgers should have no trouble finding his big target in what should be an easy home win. Green Bay will have to find some running room to open up their big passing game.
Prediction: 70 receiving yards, 1 touchdown, 7 receptions on 11 targets
