Good tight end help is hard to find in fantasy football this season. So even though his week to week numbers lack for consistency, Jimmy Graham of the Chicago Bears makes a decent option this week as his team takes on the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Football analysis: Bears TE Jimmy Graham

Graham caught all four targets that were thrown his way last week, totaling 23 yards and a touchdown. That was his first touchdown since Week 9, but the fact that the Bears are looking his way inside the red zone gives him some upside. And while he was blanked the week before last against the Packers, he did have four targets in the game before that for 32 yards.

The Vikings have allowed opposing tight ends to score five times this season, including one last week against the Bucs. Graham definitely isn’t among the better players at his position, but if you’re desperate for help, you could do worse.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Jimmy Graham as a TE2.
