Scouting report

ARI TE Jermaine Gresham - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 at Houston Texans

Jermaine Gresham had a great game against the Seahawks last week, catching 5 passes for 64 yards and a touchdown. He’s been largely ineffective most of this season, but has a touchdown in two straight games. There’s no reason to think Blaine Gabbert will be worse than Drew Stanton moving forward, so Gresham’s value should remain the same with the quarterback change.

The Texans have allowed the sixth-most fantasy points per game to the tight end position this year, giving Gresham some upside this week. He’s still a low-end option, but has streaming potential given the matchup and his recent production.

ARI TE Jermaine Gresham - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 vs. San Francisco 49ers

Jermaine Gresham caught 5 passes for 47 yards last week against the Cowboys, but that’s probably the most you can expect from him in any given week. The Cardinals don’t emphasize the tight end position under head coach Bruce Arians, and Gresham’s upside will be limited because of it. Fantasy owners should look elsewhere for streaming options.

ARI TE Jermaine Gresham - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 at Indianapolis Colts

Jermaine Gresham had 3 catches for 15 yards last week against the Lions. He had his moments of success last season, but overall he struggles to produce at a consistent level due to Bruce Arians’ offensive system that doesn’t emphasize receiving stats for tight ends. Gresham has a little upside against the Colts this week, since Indianapolis looked terrible against the Rams last week, but there should be much better options available on waivers.

ARI TE Jermaine Gresham - 2017 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Jermaine Gresham hasn't had a huge impact on the Cardinals, but they awarded the veteran a four-year deal over the offseason. Gresham caught 37 passes last year (which was more than double his 2015 total of 18), and he has 3 touchdowns in two seasons with the Cardinals.

Fantasy Downside

The numbers are reflective of head coach Bruce Arians' usage of tight ends since his arrival in Arizona. They are a blocker first and foremost (and Arians reportedly appreciates Gresham's nasty streak). That's unlikely to change.

2017 Bottom Line

Arians' approach limits the value of any Arizona tight ends, relegating them to bargain-basement DFS fodder for the most part.

ARI TE Jermaine Gresham - Week 17, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Los Angeles

Jermaine Gresham had only two catches for 40 yards last week against Seattle, and while he strung together a few good games over the later part of the season, the matchups have caught up to him recently. That should continue this week. The Rams have given up the sixth least fantasy points to the TE position this year, making it unlikely that Gresham finishes the season with a bang. There should be better options available.

ARI TE Jermaine Gresham - Week 16, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 vs. Seattle

Jermaine Gresham has been more active in the passing game over the second half of the season, and he had 42 yards on three receptions against the Saints last week. It’s good to see the Cardinals using him with a fair amount of regularity, but fantasy owners shouldn’t expect a good game this week against the Seahawks. Seattle is second in the league in scoring defense, and they’ve only allowed two touchdowns to the TE position all season.

ARI TE Jermaine Gresham - Week 15, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs. New Orleans

Jermaine Gresham only had 45 yards last week against the Dolphins, but he was targeted seven times and caught five passes. For four weeks in a row now, Gresham has been an active part of the Arizona passing game, which is a new trend in an offense that has traditionally been unkind to the TE position.

This week, Gresham has some upside against a Saints defense that has given up 60 catches and 724 yards to the TE position this season. Gresham isn’t without risk, but since he’s been more and more active in the offense lately and he has a nice matchup, we have him as a borderline starter and viable streaming option in most league formats.
