2. Jimmy Graham

Jimmy Graham’s ongoing disappointment is nothing new, as it’s been this way since he signed with the Packers in 2018. However, there was some hope he would be revitalized under Matt LaFleur given his success with tight ends. It’s safe to say that has not been the case.

After only accruing 55 receptions for 636 yards last year, Graham might be hard-pressed to reach those numbers in his second, and possibly final, year in Green Bay. Through five games, he has hauled in 12 receptions for just 132 yards. If we’re trying to look on the bright side, he’s already matched his touchdown total from a year ago with two.

Given Graham’s mighty struggles in run-blocking, he needs to bring something to the table in the passing game. However, he appears to have lost the speed and elite athletic ability that made him special earlier in his career. At this point, he is what he is and the Packers have to expect that.
