Week 5 Fantasy Football Wavier Wire: Avoid TE Garrett Graham

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

One of the most popular fantasy football wavier wire additions this week has been TE Garrett Graham of the Houston Texans.

In Houston’s most recent game against the Seattle Seahawks, Graham had another strong contest. He hauled in five balls for a respectable 69 yards and grabbed his third touchdown of the season. He was one of the top fantasy contributors from the tight end position this past week and quickly became a popular addition as a result.

However, fantasy fanatics are missing that the team’s starting tight end, Owen Daniels, finished the game with six receptions for 72 yards of his own and was targeted an astonishing 12 times in the game. He has also hauled in three touchdowns this season and the former  Wisconsin standout continues to be one of the most underrated tight ends in all of fantasy.

When it is all said and done, Daniels has been targeted 31 times already, while Graham has only been targeted 16 times. The 15 targets may not seem like much, but it shows that Daniels is much more involved in the offense and that he is the better weekly fantasy contributor. Graham may have had a big game last weekend, but he is clearly not a weekly fantasy starter. He is still number two on the depth chart for a reason and fantasy owners would be wise to take note of it.
