2019 Fantasy Outlook
Although Graham's tackle (39) and sack (four) totals last season were his lowest since 2013, the Eagles re-signed the seasoned vet to a three-year deal anyways, perhaps counting on a return to form thanks to the addition of Malik Jackson at tackle. At the very least, Graham will provide consistency on the outside as he has only missed one game over the past seven campaigns. Plus, he may benefit from the emergence of less-proven, but potential-laden, players like Derek Barnett or Josh Sweat. Read Past Outlooks

Logs three-year high in tackles
DEPhiladelphia Eagles
January 19, 2020
Graham recorded 50 tackles (35 solo) and 8.5 sacks in 2019.
ANALYSIS
Graham played 16 games for the seventh time in the last eight years but hadn't made 50 tackles in a season since 2016. The 8.5 sacks came just one shy of the career-high he set two years ago. Heading into his age-32 season, the Michigan product has two years left on his deal with the Eagles and will be back leading the rotation at defensive end in 2020.

Watching the Eagles pass rush last year was like watching a pack of wolves fight over a single deer. Graham was in the backfield constantly, but there's only one sack to go around each play. That's how he managed to total just 15 sacks over the last two years despite ranking among the league leaders in pressure forced. It's generally encouraging, though, that Graham posted 9.5 sacks last year on just 666 snaps. If you prorate that production over the 764 snaps he played in 2016, you'd get about 11 sacks.
Graham has not turned into the standout sack producer that was expected when he was drafted 13th overall in 2010, but he still took a big step forward last season. He was credited by Pro Football Focus with 83 pressures despite notching just 5.5 sack, also adding a career-high 59 tackles while forcing multiple fumbles for a third straight year. He wants a new contract as a result, so he needs to be monitored for holdout risk this summer. But so long as he is on the field for Philadelphia it's likely he turns at least a handful of those pressures into sacks this year.
Largely considered a disappointment while miscast as a 3-4 outside linebacker the last three years, Graham should finally show his true form as Philadelphia switches to a 4-3 defense this year, allowing Graham to move to end. While he eventually figured out how to play in the 3-4, 4-3 end is Graham's natural position, and playing next to the fine tackle tandem of Logan and Cox while playing opposite Connor Barwin should result in a favorable situation for Graham. He should face single-teams and make the most of the opportunity while his line-mates collapse the pocket.
After arguably his best season in the midnight green, Graham signed a four-year deal in March and is slated to step in for the departed Trent Cole at starting outside linebacker. He should see starter-level snaps this year as he looks to top his 2014 campaign, which featured 5.5 sacks and four forced fumbles as a rotation player.
Graham has the ability to make an impact as a pass rusher in the NFL, but he's proven a poor fit in Philadelphia's 3-4. He might get traded in the near future.
Graham will be Philadelphia's top backup at outside linebacker, behind Trent Cole and Connor Barwin. Despite his backup designation, it could truthfully be a timeshare between the three, as Graham might actually be the most disruptive out of the trio. He's not likely to get on the IDP radar, however.
Although he's a promising talent and former 13th overall pick, Graham has had knee issues (including microfracture surgery) and is unlikely to see many snaps at end this year with Trent Cole, Jason Babin, Philip Hunt and Vinny Curry all in town.
Likely to start the season on the PUP list due to his knee injury from 2010. Will serve as a rotational player upon his return.
Graham will be in a rotation, but he could start as Philadelphia's left defensive end during his rookie season.
