Recent Game Summaries
2015 Week 12 vs SF (3 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
With Darren Fells failing to even see a target his way, Gresham's one catch on the afternoon was the lone contribution from the TE spot. It did prove to be an important one, eking out a first down conversion on a 3rd down play on the Cardinals' game-winning drive, but apart from that catch the TE position was utterly insignificant.
2015 Week 10 vs SEA (3 / 2 / 26 / 1 rec)
Gresham was average at best blocking Sunday night, and only had two catches, but sure made that contribution count with his 14-yard go-ahead score midway through the 4th quarter. The TE seam-route has been an Achilles heel for Seattle all season long- Tyler Eifert scored twice on the play in Cincinnati's come from behind victory against Seattle week 5- and both Palmer and Gresham executed it perfectly. Gresham ran the route just wide enough to have separation from the incoming Earl Thomas after having gotten behind Chancellor, and Palmer threw a dime over the head of Kam and beating Thomas by a half step.
2015 Week 7 vs BAL (6 / 4 / 62 / 0 rec)
Seeing significantly more playing time with the injury to Darren Fells, Gresham was featured heavily in the passing attack Monday night and did not disappoint. Gresham tied John Brown in both receptions and targets, with his only significant drop coming after a crushing hit from a Ravens' defender. Gresham has had some concentration issues that have plagued him throughout his career, dropping easy catches or failing to properly secure the ball after he does, making his performance Monday night all the more valuable. While Gresham should not expect to be featured so heavily going forward, he will continue to see additional opportunities with Fells likely missing a few more weeks. This will not translate to much fantasy value, if any at all, but can still serve as an important outlet for Palmer.
2015 Week 4 vs STL (3 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
Much of what was said about for Fells applies to Gresham, with one notable exception. Gresham was targeted two more times than Fells and both instances resulted in bad drops.
2015 Week 3 vs SF (3 / 2 / 34 / 0 rec)
Like Fells, Gresham was minimally involved in the passing game, yet did prove more effective of the two as a check-down option. Gresham did however earn the praise of General Manager Steve Keim, who commended Gersham's ability to set the edge in run blocking as an element the organization had been searching for for quite some time. Gresham also did appear to be the target of an early touchdown attempt, but the play was nullified by a false start penalty.
2015 Week 1 vs NO (1 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
Gresham was only targeted once on the day, but having missed all of preseason recovering from a back injury, he should be more involved in the offense as the season continues.
