The football world is waiting for the decision on whether Jimmy Graham gets franchised tagged as a tight end or a wide receiver. Not only will it have financial ramifications, but it could also cause a ‘ripple effect’, paving the way for other players to lodge the same complaint against their teams and the franchise tag.
Whether Graham is tagged as a tight end or wide receiver could also have an impact on fantasy football – specifically whether the player is listed as a wide receiver or a tight end. Fortunately, ESPN and fantasy reporter Field Yates was able to shed some light on this.
So even if everything goes as planned for Jimmy Graham, it appears that his fantasy status will not change. Graham should be able to be played in either the TE or WR/TE slots.
