What to do with Jimmy Graham in Week 6 fantasy football

Packers tight end Jimmy Graham looks to rebound from a slow Week 5 and build on an inconsistent season.

Green Bay Packers tight end Jimmy Graham has had an inconsistent season — to say the least. After three receptions for 30 yards and a touchdown in Week 1, he had no catches and only one target the next two weeks. In Week 4 he had six receptions for 61 yards and a touchdown, but then followed that up in Week 5 with three receptions for 41 yards.

The Packers will be without wide receiver Davante Adams in Week 6 as he continues rehabbing a toe injury. Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison will start at receiver. The team welcomes back running back Jamaal Williams, who will serve to complement Aaron Jones.

Fantasy football analysis, Packers TE Jimmy Graham

The Packers will have a host of weapons even without Adams. Detroit has impressed on defense, but their biggest weakness has seen them give up the fourth most points to running backs. This strikes me as a potential Jones/Williams game. Graham will be available in the passing game, but the Packers passing attack has been incredibly inconsistent of late. It’s hard to justify getting Graham into your lineup on Monday.
