Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 7 vs ARI (10 / 5 / 53 / 0 rec)
Graham was heavily targeted, and heavily covered. Gee, you'd think the Cardinals knew ahead of time that the Seahawks would try to get him the ball. Kidding aside, the Cards clearly did their best to bottle him up, and were successful in limiting Graham's catches and in tackling him quickly after the catch. Even in extremely tight coverage, Graham still won the battle half of the time. He should continue to be an elite tier tight end going forward; he is probably especially looking forward to his return to New Orleans (and their soft defense) next week.
2016 Week 6 vs ATL (9 / 6 / 89 / 0 rec)
Graham keeps on making it look easy. He got the first target of the game, and it would not be his last. He had one blemish on the day, dropping what should have been an easy catch and a first down. But after the early miscue, Graham was just plain hard to stop. The only thing he didn't accomplish was a score. But with Wilson locking on to him this way, those are bound to come.
2016 Week 4 vs NYJ (8 / 6 / 113 / 0 rec)
Wow, is there anything Graham can't do? This game was like a flashback to the Brees-Graham connection in New Orleans. He started with a brilliant one-handed sideline grab, then an over the shoulder catch ñ and made it look easy all the while. He led the team in catches and yards and nearly every catch belonged on the highlight reel. The only thing missing was a score. It's official, folks. The Wilson-to-Graham connection is now open.
2016 Week 3 vs SF (9 / 6 / 100 / 1 rec)
With Tyler Lockett playing limited snaps, Graham became the second look in the passing game. It was a coming out party of sorts. It took a full season, but it seems that the Seahawks are finally ready to take advantage of Graham's big presence and sure hands downfield. His first catch was over the middle, and he took a big hit from the safety but got right back up. Next, Wilson threw to him in coverage, missing on the first one, but connecting on the second to bring the team to the 4 yard line. He lost a fumble as he was tackled after catch, which was almost imperceptible, but upon review, the ball was loose in his hand as it came down to the turf. Close call. On his touchdown play, Graham was actually wide open twice; once on his actual pattern, and again while he got open as Wilson scrambled. Graham also wrestled the ball away from a defender on a jump ball, which was quite the impressive feat, since he didn't even touch the ball first.
2016 Week 2 vs LA (4 / 3 / 42 / 0 rec)
Graham was seldom used again as a receiver, but did get more use than in week 1. He finally saw the ball in semi-garbage time, deep in his own zone near the end of the half. BUT they were very good catches, and almost allowed the Seahawks a chance to score. If the receiver injuries keep anyone out in week 3, Graham could be a sneaky fantasy play.
2016 Week 1 vs MIA (1 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)
Graham was extremely quiet in this one, finally making his lone catch on the final drive and getting his team into the red zone.
