|Three Texans tight ends absent from Wednesday practice |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(12/11/13) The Texans are struggling to keep their tight ends healthy. Starter Owen Daniels remained out Wednesday as he continues to recover from a fractured fibula that has had him on IR since Week 5. He was deemed close to returning three weeks ago.
Also out on Wednesday were fellow tight ends Garrett Graham (hamstring) and Jake Byrne (flu).
|Can Garrett Graham make it two in a row? |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(12/10/13) Getting a season-high 14 targets, Texans tight end Garrett Graham turned in one of his best performances of the season Week 14 at Jacksonville, catching eight passes for 73 yards and a touchdown. It was his first touchdown in three games. He put up ess than 40 yards in each of the previous two.
Though his production has been inconsistent, his targets haven't. He has averaged 11.5 in his last four games, getting no fewer than nine in any of them. That bodes well for his matchup Week 15 at Indianapolis. The Colts rank 18th against the pass, allowing 241.5 points per game. They've allowed the 10th-fewest Fantasy points to tight ends, but they haven't faced any notable ones since Week 7 against the Broncos, when Julius Thomas had five catches for 41 yards and a touchdown against them.
Graham had four catches for 46 yards when he faced the Colts in Week 9, but he wasn't being targeted as much at the time. As many looks as he's getting now, both Jamey Eisenberg and Nathan Zegura like him as a top-12 tight end for this week. Dave Richard is a little more reserved, ranking him 15th.
|Garrett Graham snaps slump, finds end zone |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(12/6/13) Texans tight end Garrett Graham had his best game in three weeks Thursday, in a 27-20 loss to the Jaguars in Week 14.
Graham played a big part in the passing game, as he was targeted 14 times through the air. He brought in eight of those passes for 73 yards, including a 5-yard touchdown in the third quarter.
Graham has already posted career-highs across the board this season, so everything from here on out will just pad his totals. He enters Week 15 against the Colts with 49 receptions for 545 yards and five touchdowns.
|Garrett Graham keeps seeing targets |
|by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(12/3/13) Texans tight end Garrett Graham has averaged 10 targets per game over his last two, but has just eight catches for 68 total yards to show for it. The first of those two games came against the Jaguars in Week 12, when Graham caught five passes on nine targets for 32 yards.
Graham faces the Jaguars again this Thursday night, and while he's seeing plenty of targets, he isn't doing much with them. In Week 11, Graham was targeted 12 times and finished with 126 yards and a touchdown, but he benefited from a Case Keenum scramble and broken-play throw that saw him open in the end zone. Working in his favor for Week 14, however, is the matchup.
The Jaguars held Graham to 32 yards in Week 12, but fellow tight end Ryan Griffin also caught a pass for 37 yards, meaning the Jags allowed 69 total yards to the tight end position. In three of the last four games, the Jags have allowed 65 or more receiving yards to the position, along with two touchdowns.
Graham is far from a sure thing, but he's seeing a ton of passes, and is facing a defense that has allowed the third-most Fantasy points per game to tight ends this season. He's not someone to hang your playoff hopes on, but there's a good enough matchup here to start Graham in many streaming situations.
|Garrett Graham does little Week 13 despite 11 targets |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(12/1/13) Texans tight end Garrett Graham was heavily targeted Week 13 vs. New England, but he contributed very little during a 34-31 loss. Graham was held to three catches for 36 yards, despite a team-high 11 targets.
Graham, whose longest reception went 17 yards, has been held to less than 40 yards in two straight games since totaling a franchise-record 136 receiving yards Week 11. He's also gone two straight games without a touchdown.
The Texans have a quick turnaround Week 14, playing at Jacksonville Thursday.

|Garrett Graham is expected to roll as the No. 2 tight end in the Texans' offense, a role he's been planning for. That should mean more playing time and targets, but until we see Graham start to make an impact in the Texans' offense, Fantasy owners shouldn't consider him. (Updated 4/26/13) |
