A lot of things went wrong for the Green Bay Packers in 2018, but the team is looking forward to a fresh start this upcoming season under new head coach Matt LaFleur.

One player hoping to benefit from the new coaching regime is veteran tight end Jimmy Graham, who signed a three-year deal with Green Bay heading into the 2018 season. Graham put up his lowest touchdown total (two) since 2015 last season, which was his first season with the Seattle Seahawks.

Graham may just need another training camp with quarterback Aaron Rodgers to develop some rhythm, as many expected the pair to have great chemistry in the red zone.

When you look at the numbers from last season, Graham only really struggled in the TD department. His totals of 55 catches for 636 receiving yards were in line with his production over the past four seasons, as Graham is clearly past his prime years with the New Orleans Saints.

If Graham can work his way closer to 10 touchdowns, he'll be a name to consider once the top-3 fantasy tight ends – Travis Kelce, Zach Ertz, and George Kittle – go off the board.

Graham currently has an average draft position (ADP) of 141 (the No. 15 TE), according to FantasyPros.com, a projection he can likely surpass if his touchdown total returns to career norms.
