Garrett Graham injury update: Tight end could be a decent stream option in fantasy

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Garrett Graham is ready to go against the Cardinals. We break down the fantasy implications.

Houston Texans tight end Garrett Graham is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. He was limited in Wednesday's practice, then return to full participation the rest of the week.

He's up to three scores on the season, but hasn't hit paydirt since September. Graham is basically sharing the duties at tight end with Owen Daniels and hasn't cleared 50 yards or four catches in any game since that last TD outing on Sep. 29.

The Texans have lost all of those games, but the good news is that Graham's targets are up with new quarterback Case Keenum. Graham saw 14 targets combined in Keenum's two starts and the Texans have been using him more on short routes to help combat teams blitzing so much.

Fantasy impact: The Cardinals run a ton of blitzes up the middle, so that should open up the middle of the field for Houston's tight ends. Graham is a sneaky player to think about as a streaming option and it's encouraging that the Texans were able to score 24 points last week after not scoring over 20 on their six-game losing streak.
