News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 18): Graham has an ankle injury and might miss Week 3. He was barely involved in the offense despite coming into the season healthy. He's worth a hold but patience is wearing thin.
General News (Fri Sep 22): practiced fully on Friday but is questionable to play this week. Graham will be a game-time decision for Week 3 versus the Tennessee Titans, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
General News (Thu Sep 21): did not practice on Thursday.
General News (Mon Sep 18): came away from Week 2 with a sore ankle and it is "unclear" at the moment if he will play in Week 3 versus the Tennessee Titans.
Week 3: at Tennessee Titans
FBG says: Neutral matchup. Russell Wilson survived another week without injury behind an offensive line that seems to endanger him on every play. Wilson was sluggish last week against the 49-ers, failing to pass for over 200 yards while completing only 59% of his 39 pass attempts. Tyler Lockett and Doug Baldwin were the key targets in the Seahawks passing game, but both struggled to find space and hauled in only six of their nine targets a piece for mediocre stat lines. Paul Richardson came close to making a few big plays and did finish with the team's first and only touchdown, but he still only managed 19 total yards. Russell Wilson rarely has time to throw behind his bottom-ranked offensive line, which helps explain why he finished last week with 12 rushing attempts and had a tough time sustaining a drive with any consistency. The Titans pass defense was made to look rather solid last week against Blake Bortles, picking him off twice while holding Bortles to only 223 passing yards and one touchdown. The key there was Blake Bortles, who can make any defense look elite. The Titans secondary still allowed a number of chunk plays in the passing game, and they could again be without starting safety Johnathan Cyprien (knee) next week. Cornerback Adoree Jackson normally lines up on the left side for the Titans, and the rookie has struggled with quarterbacks targeting him often.

2017 Week 2 vs SF (2 / 1 / 1 / 0 rec)
Graham seemed a bit off this entire game. Early on, he was hit hard and dropped a pass. Wilson had hit him in stride going downfield, for what could have been a big gain. It looked like the Seahawks made a point of getting the ball his way early. But the Niners made a point of hitting him hard. In the third quarter, Graham made a very short catch as well, but had nowhere to run.
2017 Week 1 vs GB (7 / 3 / 8 / 0 rec)
Graham was targeted often but still finished with a subpar line. He was too often the check down option on 3rd and long - and too often left blocking to help out the porous offensive line. He showed uncharacteristically bad hands with a couple of drops that shouldn't have been. The saving grace here is that he was a top target, something that you couldn't say last season for every game. That, and he remains a key red zone target for Russell Wilson.

Our View: Graham is likely to be active, but he might play limited snaps or be of limited effectiveness. Luke Willson would get extra snaps or targets at tight end, but Tyler Lockett is also a player that could benefit from Graham's injury.
