Garrett Graham – TE, Houston Texans – Waiver Wire Analysis

Baller Move:  Add in All PPR Leagues
Analysis: In the 2 weeks that rookie quarterback Case Keenum has been under center, Houston’s tight end Graham has seen a slight bump in his passing targets.  In week 9 he saw 6 targets, and in the previous game he saw 8 targets.  This is a nice development, and hopefully a sign of things to come.  Anyone who has seen Keenum play knows that he can throw the ball, and hasn’t been making many mistakes.  He can spread the ball around the field, which is a nice upgrade over former Texans quarterback Matt Schaub.  Graham is a decent NFL tight end, and should be seeing at least 5-8 targets per game going forward.  The recent news of Foster’s injury only adds more necessity for the Texans to throw the ball effectively – and as more teams double-team Andre Johnson, others on the team like Graham should be open for receptions.  If you’re looking for a decent TE option with some upside, especially in PPR leagues, then target Graham as a tight end sleeper off the week 10 waiver wire.  He faces the Cardinals defense in week 10, which has given up the most fantasy point to TEs this season, and could be in for a nice day at the office.
