Chicago Bears veteran tight end Jimmy Graham was one of multiple Bears players, who found the end zone in their 36-7 win over the Houston Texans in Week 14. Graham finished the game with four receptions (four targets) for 23 yards. It was his first touchdown in three weeks.

Graham is the Bears TE1 on paper, but he hasn’t played like a top-15 tight end in fantasy football this season. Heading into Sunday’s game, the veteran only had 38 receptions for 334 yards and five touchdowns. Graham’s value is inside the red zone and nowhere else on the football field.

The Bears are hoping that Graham can go on a tear like he did earlier this season. Between Weeks 3-7, the 6-foot-7 tight end recorded 23 receptions (34 targets) for 191 yards and three touchdowns. Graham is currently rostered in 29 percent of Yahoo fantasy leagues.
