Gresham (back) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Already without star wide receiver A.J. Green, the Bengals' passing attack takes another hit on Sunday. With Gresham out, Ryan Hewitt and Kevin Brock are candidates to see added work at tight end in the Cincinnati offense, while Green's absence paves the way for Mohamed Sanu and Brandon Tate to head the team's receiving corps in Sunday's wild card tilt against Indianapolis. Gresham is set to become an unrestricted free agent in the offseason.
Gresham (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts, Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

It's unclear whether Gresham was a full participant, but the official listing will be available Friday afternoon. While the veteran tight end didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday, his back injury is not believed to be overly serious. In the event that Gresham suits up and A.J. Green (concussion) doesn't, the tight end would likely see added targets Sunday against the Colts.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Gresham improved his targets, catches, yards and yards per target for the second consecutive season and finished in the top 10 among tight ends in both receptions (64) and receiving yards (737) last year. But the Bengals still saw fit to draft Tyler Eifert with their first-round pick. It's too early to tell how Eifert's role will impact Gresham, but Gresham has the edge in experience and chemistry with Andy Dalton, which should go a long way. At 6-5, Gresham is a big target in the passing game and has improved his route-running the last couple seasons. After A.J. Green, the Bengals don't have another top-shelf wide receiver, something that should continue to afford Gresham steady targets from Dalton.

2012

The Bengals loosened the reins on Gresham last season, and the second-year tight end showed healthy improvement, benefiting from Andy Dalton’s surprising play. Whereas in his rookie season Gresham was limited mainly to short routes, he increased his yards per target by almost a full yard last season and posted 10 receptions of 20-plus yards after not recording one in his first year. While his receptions increased by only four to 56 (though in one less game), his yards increased by 125 to 596. He also scored six touchdowns, seventh among tight ends.A lanky tight end at 6-5, Gresham uses his length to make for a big target in the passing game. He saw 14 red-zone targets, seven within 10 yards of the goal line. Gresham also improved at the nuances of his position, running sharper routes and creating more separation. A hamstring injury cost him two games, but he was consistently targeted in the passing game with at least five targets per game. Gresham is still developing, but his upside is obvious. A better rapport with Dalton this season and greater emphasis in the passing game could pay off big.

2011

The 2010 first-round pick battled through a late-season knee injury in a steady if unspectacular rookie year. Big and athletic at 6-6, 260, Greshman was excellent after the catch, using his size and skills to break tackles and gain solid yardage after contact. In fact, more than 76 percent (359 of 471) of his yards came after the catch. The way the Bengals used him, though, perhaps stifled his production. Greshman mainly ran short routes (5.7 YPT), depriving him of the opportunity to make plays downfield. And oddly, considering his size, the Bengals only targeted him nine times in the red zone all season. Perhaps that will change this season with last year's top two receiving options leaving town and a trio of young wide receivers left in their wake. The Bengals are unsettled at quarterback, but even if Carson Palmer doesn’t return it wouldn’t be all doom and gloom if rookie quarterback Andy Dalton took over – he'd likely lean on his tight end as a safety valve.

2010

Gresham suffered a season-ending knee injury before even taking the field for a game in 2009 for Oklahoma. Despite the injury, the Bengals took him with the 21st overall pick and have been pleased with his progress so far in camp. He lacks elite speed but is a polished receiver and elusive enough after the catch to make an impact immediately for the Bengals. To secure the starting spot he'll have to improve his blocking, something Chase Coffman couldn't do in his rookie season last year for the Bengals.
