What to do with Jimmy Graham in Week 16 fantasy football

In the midst of another disappointing season for Green Bay, is Graham even worth considering in such a big spot? We take a look.

The Green Bay Packers enter Week 16 with a huge Monday Night Football matchup vs. the Minnesota Vikings with NFC North title implications. The Packers aren’t in too much trouble of losing the division even in a loss, but it would make things interesting heading into Week 17. Green Bay’s offense has been very inconsistent this season and Graham is a big reason why. He’s having another lackluster campaign and isn’t getting much target volume or red zone looks.

Fantasy Football Analysis: Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham

It’s tough to trust Graham in Week 16 when you’re likely in a championship game in fantasy football. He has three games above 10 fantasy points all season and the most targets he got in a game was way back in September vs. the Eagles (9). The Vikings have a capable defense and should have no trouble containing Graham. I can’t recommend playing him this week with any confidence. If you’re desperate, sure, go for it. But you can probably find somebody with a safer floor on the wire.
