Houston Texans tight end Garrett Graham had a breakthrough performance with a game-high 97 yards receiving on four catches. We break down the fantasy implications.

Houston Texans tight end Garrett Graham had a breakthrough performance with a game-high 97 yards receiving on four catches. Graham improved his preseason numbers to seven receptions and 141 receiving yards. He has had a strong summer, showing off his sure hands in the passing game. Owen Daniels may want to be on the lookout, as Graham could begin to eat into his playing time.

Analysis: In deeper leagues, Garrett Graham could be worth a flier late in fantasy drafts. The most notable fantasy impact Graham is having is on the value of Owen Daniels. With the Texans shifting to a more run-oriented offense, Daniels value was already declining, but now that he has competition for targets, he may slide down draft boards even more. There are better starting tight end options than Daniels at this point.
