WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

The Cardinals are releasing tight end Jermaine Gresham, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

For salary cap purposes, the move will happen on Thursday after the start of the new league year on Wednesday, according to Schefter. It's possible another team makes a trade offer to Arizona to avoid Gresham hitting the open market, but it's unlikely. The veteran tight end spent the last four seasons with the Cardinals, and he should draw interest around the league when he's officially released on Thursday.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham catches 16-yard pass in Week 15 loss.

It was his only catch of the game. Gresham won't be a recommended fantasy option next week when the Rams come to town.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham held without a catch in Week 14 loss.

Gresham was targeted once, and he is off the fantasy radar on an underperforming offense.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham catches one pass in loss to the Chargers.

It went for two yards on his only target. Gresham isn’t a recommended fantasy option for one of the worst teams in the NFL. 

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham catches one pass in Week 11.

Gresham gained eight yards on his lone reception, but he also had a drop in the game. The veteran tight end isn't a fantasy option right now.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham catches three passes in Week 8.

Gresham gained 22 yards on his three receptions against the Niners, but he also lost a fumble in the game. The veteran tight end is healthy and contributing in real life, but he's not a recommended fantasy option at the moment.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham catches one pass against the Niners.

Gresham gained 11 yards on his lone reception (one target) in Arizona's first win of the season. Gresham is a better veteran presence than fantasy option.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham catches one pass in 2018 debut.

Gresham was playing in his first game since tearing his Achilles in the final game of last season, and he gained nine yards on his lone reception. He's not a fantasy option, but Gresham is a great veteran presence for Arizona.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham (Achilles) is active for Week 3.

After missing the first two games of the season, the veteran tight end is back from his torn Achilles suffered in the season finale last season. Gresham isn't a recommended option in fantasy lineups, but his presence will be a boost for the Cardinals in real life.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham (Achilles) is officially listed as questionable for Week 3.

The veteran tight end is expected to make his 2018 debut against the Bears, but he's officially listed as questionable. We'll know Gresham's status for certain by 3:00 PM ET on Sunday, but he's not a recommended fantasy option if he's active.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham (Achilles) was a full participant in practice.

The hope is that the veteran tight end will make his season debut this Sunday versus the Bears. We’ll update you on how Gresham is listed on the official injury report for the game when it’s released on Friday.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham (Achilles) is inactive for Week 2.

The veteran tight end is making progress, but he's not yet ready to make his 2018 debut. Gresham has a chance to play next week against the Bears. Ricky Seals-Jones will again handle tight end duties for the Cardinals.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham (Achilles) is questionable for Week 2.

Gresham remained limited in practice throughout the week, so he might be more on the doubtful side of things despite being listed as questionable. Remember, Gresham tore his Achilles in the season finale last year, so it's not like he's behind schedule in his recovery.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham (Achilles) is inactive for the Cardinals.

Gresham missed the entire summer while recovering from his Achilles injury suffered in Week 17 last year, so this was expected despite him being listed as questionable. The veteran tight end is close enough that he could potentially play in Week 2, though.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham (Achilles) is listed as questionable for Week 1.

The veteran tight end is making a push to play in the season opener despite tearing his Achilles in the season finale last year. If Gresham does play, he probably won't have a huge role after missing the entire summer, but his presence would be good for Arizona. This doesn't affect Ricky Seals-Jones' Week 1 status as a high-potential fantasy option.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

The Cardinals activated Jermaine Gresham (Achilles) off the PUP.

This is good news, as the veteran tight end won't be forced to miss the first six games of the season. He appears a long shot for Week 1 at this point, but we should see Gresham back on the field within the first several weeks after his torn Achilles suffered in the season finale last year.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Steve Wilks says "it's going to be close" whether Jermaine Gresham (Achilles) starts the season on the PUP.

The veteran tight end remains on the PUP list because of his torn Achilles from last season's final game, and he'd miss the first six weeks of the season if he remains on the PUP. Ricky Seals-Jones is very likely to start for the Cardinals in Week 1 either way, and Gresham is not a fantasy option at the moment.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

The Cardinals placed Jermaine Gresham (Achilles) on the PUP list to start training camp.

The veteran tight end is coming off a torn Achilles from Week 17 of last season, and this was fully expected. Gresham is no lock to be ready for Week 1, but he is experienced enough (and has history with quarterback Sam Bradford from their Oklahoma Sooner days) to immediately have a nice role on offense when he's healthy. Ricky Seals-Jones, who showed solid flashes last season, is expected to be the team's top tight end and could have TE1 fantasy value in 2018.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham catches three passes for 24 yards in Week 17.

The veteran tight end's season ends with a 33/322/2 stat line, which has been on par with his recent production with the Cardinals. It's up in the air if Gresham will return to Arizona in 2018.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham catches one pass in Week 16.

Gresham gained four yards on his lone reception against the Giants. He's not a fantasy option right now.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham (illness) has been ruled out for Week 15.

Gresham is dealing with an illness that's bad enough to keep him out tomorrow against the Redskins. Ricky Seals-Jones is a very appealing streaming option this week, and he's in TE1 consideration against a Redskins team that isn't great against opposing tight ends.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermain Gresham catches both targets in Week 14.

Gresham gained 27 yards on his two receptions, including a long of 21 yards where he got some yardage after contact. The veteran tight end isn't a recommended fantasy option right now.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham caught two passes for 17 yards in Sunday's loss to the Rams.

Gresham isn't a fantasy option with Ricky Seals-Jones emerging. Keep him on the waiver wire for the fantasy playoffs.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham caught two passes for 13 yards in Sunday's win.

Gresham took a backseat to Ricky Seals-Jones for the second-straight week, and he also had fewer yards than Troy Niklas. The veteran isn't a fantasy option in Week 13.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham catches one pass in Week 11.

Gresham gained ten yards on his lone reception, and undrafted rookie Ricky Seals-Jones out-targeted him, 5-1, and caught two touchdowns in the game. Gresham is a risky fantasy option, as Seals-Jones' role might grow moving forward.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham scores in Week 10.

Gresham was targeted seven times in the loss to Seattle, catching five passes for 64 yards and a touchdown. The score came in the second quarter on a perfectly-called and -executed screen pass. Gresham did drop another would-be touchdown late in the game, but for fantasy purposes the 12 standard-league points was still very good nonetheless. Gresham now has two touchdowns in two games with Drew Stanton under center, but he's not yet a recommended TE1 option.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham scores in Week 9 win.

Gresham caught two passes for 23 yards, including an 11-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Feeding Adrian Peterson should open things up for Gresham over the middle, but the offense probably isn't efficient enough to consider him a reliable fantasy option. The 4-4 Cardinals host the Seahawks in Week 10 on TNF.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham catches one pass against the Rams.

Gresham gained 18 yards on his lone reception, and his fantasy value probably decreases without Carson Palmer (broken arm) in the lineup. There are probably better streaming options out there at TE.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham caught two passes for 32 yards in Sunday's win over the Bucs.

The veteran tight end should benefit from some more play-action opportunities with Adrian Peterson in the backfield, but he's not a recommended fantasy option in Week 7 against the Rams.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham caught two passes for 16 yards in Sunday's loss to the Eagles.

He took a couple low shots on his receptions, and was slow to get up on the second, but he seemed frustrated more than anything else. Gresham isn't a fantasy option for next week against the Bucs.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham gets nine targets in Week 3.

Gresham received a good amount of work after missing Week 2 with a rib injury, catching five passes for 47 yards. Gresham is not a recommended fantasy option at the moment, despite his contributions in real life to his team.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham (rib) is questionable for Monday night against the Cowboys.

Gresham is expected to be out there after missing Week 2, but ideally you'll have safer options in your fantasy lineup anyway. If you are relying on Gresham, make sure you check back in on Monday night. He'll probably be more of a help for Carson Palmer and the offense than your fantasy team.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham (ribs) practiced today.

The Cardinals tight end practiced on a limited basis, but head coach Bruce Arians expects him to be ready for Monday night against Dallas. We'll let you know if anything changes, but Gresham should be active for the game. There are definitely some better fantasy options available than Gresham, but him being active will be good for his real life team.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham (ribs) is inactive for Week 1.

Gresham did not practice all week and was listed as questionable, but he's officially out for the game against Indy. He wasn't a recommended fantasy option anyway, but he's a loss for the Cardinals.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham caught three passes for 15 yards in the Cardinals' season opener.

Gresham is a low-upside option that can remain on the waiver wire, even next week against a bad Colts defense.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham catches touchdown in Week 2 preseason game.

Gresham had a one-yard touchdown on his only target of the game. He's currently going undrafted in fantasy leagues.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham catches one pass in preseason game against Oakland.

Arizona's starting tight end had a nine-yard reception in his limited action. He should deliver some top ten TE fantasy weeks in 2017, but it's unlikely he's a reliable fantasy option with so many other options at the TE position.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

The Cardinals have re-signed Jermaine Gresham to a four-year contract, according to Adam Schefter.

Gresham had a very nice stretch to end the season, and he'll be back with the Cardinals. This does not mean the Cardinals won't draft a tight end in a deep tight end class, but the Cardinals clearly value Gresham. He'll probably be a solid TE2 in 2017 fantasy drafts.

Jermaine Gresham reamins involved for the Cardinals.

He had two catches for 40 yards against Seattle. He's had at least 40 yards or a touchdown in six straight weeks and isn't a bad option in Week 17, although he does not have much upside.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham caught three passes for 42 yards in Sunday's loss to the Saints.

Gresham has been a consistent part of the offense, but hasn't been good enough to be in the TE1 conversation. He can stay out of your lineup in Seattle on Christmas Eve.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham surprisingly leads the Cardinals in receiving against Miami.

Gresham had five catches for 45 yards on seven targets. It's three straight weeks with five catches for Gresham, who has been reliable for Palmer when no receivers behind Larry Fitzgerald has stepped up. Gresham is not a good fantasy option, though.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham sees double-digit targets; catches touchdown in loss.

Gresham caught five passes for 35 yards and one touchdown, his second straight week with a score. The Cardinals never had the tight end position be a big part of the offense with Bruce Arians as their head coach, but Gresham has come on the past couple weeks. Perhaps it is because the struggles of the wideouts not named Larry Fitzgerald. Whatever the reason, Gresham deserves streaming consideration next week versus the Redskins.

Jermaine Gresham | Free Agent TE

Jermaine Gresham catches touchdown in Week 11.

He had two catches for 33 yards and a TD. He’s not a good fantasy option, however.
