CIN Jermaine Gresham looks to be starter at TE

Cininnati Enquirer - [Full Article]

Robert Weintraub of Football Outsiders provides his look at the position: “Jermaine Gresham was a matchup nightmare at Oklahoma, averaging well over 14 yards per catch for his career. Our projections don’t foresee quite that high a number, but provided he stays healthy (a big IF when talking about Bengals tight ends), he should approach double-digits in yards every time he hauls one in, which should be often enough, given we project Gresham to catch about 75% of the balls thrown his way.

Fantasy Impact: 

There's been a lot of positive words about Gresham this offseason, but there doesn't seem to be a need to reach for him at all this summer in fantasy drafts. TE is a very deep position and there doesn't seem to even be a need to reach for the more consistent, year-to-year guys. That said, a good fantasy GM look for bargains in the very late rounds and perhaps Gresham could be one of those guys you take a shot at.
