Jimmy Graham injury update: Seahawks TE questionable for fantasy owners

Graham made an impressive comeback from a torn patellar tendon, but how much will he play this week? We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham is somehow close to recovering from a devastating knee injury. Graham got in full practices this week and is listed as questionable for the team's Week 1 opener against the Miami Dolphins. He's expected to play, although he may have a limited snap count.

Graham suffered a torn patellar tendon last season. It's one of the worst knee injuries an athlete can go through -- Victor Cruz tore his in 2014 and missed nearly two years of football -- but Graham is on track to play and didn't appear to have any setbacks.

Fantasy impact: While the recovery is impressive, fantasy owners shouldn't be all-in on Graham quite yet. He had a hard time getting integrated into the Seahawks' offense last year, catching just 48 passes and two touchdowns in 11 games before the injury. If Graham does play, it will likely be only a handful of snaps. He's off the fantasy radar until he shows that the knee truly is 100 percent.
