Garrett Graham rewards loyal fantasy owners with big game

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Texans tight end topped 100 yards and notched his third score of the season Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

After several games of middling production in place of starting tight end Owen Daniels, Houston Texans tight end Garrett Graham finally showed why he had the job Sunday, The tight end had a big game in a loss, as the Texans fell to the Oakland Raiders 28-23.

Graham caught seven balls (on 13 targets) for 136 yards and a score in Sunday's game. In nine games this season before Sunday's game, he had less than double that total, with 268 yards. Graham's score came on a 42-yard pass from quarterback Case Keenum early in the second quarter of the game.

Fantasy impact: Daniels has said he is targeting Week 14 for his return from a fractured right fibula. In the meantime, the team has two games in three weeks against the Jacksonville Jaguars (the second of the two being Daniels' targeted return date), which could mean friendly matchups for Graham.

As it stands, Graham isn't much more than a TE2/fill-in, but more games like this could vault him up the position rankings.
