ESPN - [Full Article]

It is probably going to take the team a few regular season games to figure out how the Seahawks want to use tight end Jimmy Graham.

He had two catches for 24 yards on five targets Saturday night. Graham has played 52 preseason snaps, and he's been used as a run blocker 36.5 percent of the time. The results have been mixed.

On an early Marshawn Lynch 3rd-and-1 carry, the Seahawks didn't generate any kind of push, and Graham let a defender slip past him as the run was stopped short of a first down. He did a good job on Robert Turbin's 7-yard run in the first.

But in the third, Graham looked like he was unsure of which defender to block, and a defensive lineman went right past him in the red zone to drop Turbin for a 7-yard loss. In other words, Graham appears to be a work in progress as a run blocker.

Fantasy Impact: 

If the Seahawks can keep Graham on the field in running situations, it will only help to open the passing game for play-action passes which is where Graham could thrive.
