graham -- proving the experts wrong?

Postby vdragon78 » Fri Sep 10, 2004 8:57 am

i can't believe Graham wasn't rated in the top 15 on most cheat sheets.
He was on fire in the second half of last year.... i drafted him in 13th as my second tight end and everyone laughed ...

I've had Graham around #5/#6 on my TE sheets ever since the middle of last year when he started getting all the looks.

I drafted him in just about all my leagues except my money league where my #4 guy (Gates) was still on the board.

FootballGuys have been drinking Graham's Kool-Aid all year. So not all the experts will be wrong if Graham pans out as a good fantasy TE. They are the ones who really sold me on Graham.

quick - who led the game last night for passes thrown to?

Graham. He was thrown to 10 times while Harrison and Branch each were thrown to 9 times.

Thats pretty amazing for a TE to get more looks than Marvelous Marv, isnt it? :-o

Yeah, but it still makes you wonder with Fauria & Watson around. Gotta believe those two will get some looks. Ha ha ha.... Fauria & Watson sounds like a law firm. ;-D

Watson may steal some looks, but Brady seems to have rapport with Graham. I'm going to go grab him right now!

Was anyone here talking about Graham before the season started??? :-B

I don't remember much discussion on him - no surprise since TE's are a pretty junky fantasy position. But, if he stays healthy and Brady keeps throwing it to him 10 times a game (which I doubt), then he could have been a big steal.

Looks like most of us (except Bagel and a few others) could have missed out on a diamond in the rough...and I'm stuck with Bubba Franks! :-o

I thought going into the season that he was top 8, maybe at #8. This seems to solidify this in my mind and perhaps he now achieves higher.

I've been high on him since last season. I drafted him, but then dumped him for Boo. Graham did well, but Boo did better.

I had him rated as a top 5-10 TE, definitely highlighted as an underrated "TE to target." He's a TE built like a WR, so he can beat LB's easily when matched up with him (as he did for his TD grab). I should've grabbed him in my leagues, but ended up not being able to pass up on Shockey in all four of my money leagues. Took Shock in the tail end of round 4, or so, in all my leagues.
