Gresham caught two of three targets for 17 yards during Sunday's 32-16 loss to the Rams.
Snaps aren't extensively valuable among Arizona tight ends. Gresham, again, bested talented newcomer Ricky Seals-Jones in offensive snaps on Sunday 33 to 15, but Seals-Jones came through where it counted. Over the past three weeks, Seals-Jones leads Gresham in catches (nine to five), targets (16 to seven) yards (170 to 40) and touchdowns (three to zero). Gresham might still get starter-level snaps in Arizona, but his limited role in the passing offense has been exacerbated by Seals-Jones' arrival
Gresham reached the end zone in Weeks 9 and 10, marking his only touchdowns of the season. With Blaine Gabbert under center the past two games, Gresham has led all Cardinals tight ends in usage but gathered in just three of four targets for 23 yards combined. Meanwhile, undrafted free agent TE Ricky Seals-Jones has displayed a strong rapport with Gabbert, likely due to working together on the scout team for much of the season. As evidence, Seals-Jones' 25 snaps on offense the last two weeks have translated to seven catches for 126 yards and three TDs. Although Gresham's workload is unlikely to decrease moving forward, his ability as a blocker may inhibit his chances to contribute as a receiver.
Gresham was targeted once and recorded a 10-yard catch in Sunday's 31-21 loss to the Texans.
You have to feel for Gresham. The former first-round pick was scoreless through the first six games of the season before going on a two-game touchdown streak to enter Sunday. All of a sudden, the new young gun -- Ricky Seals-Jones -- pops off two touchdowns in one game and Gresham is relegated to a single catch. Gresham's starting gig is far from on the line, he logged 45 offensive snaps to Seals-Jones' eight, but his production could keep taking hits if Seals-Jones heats up.
Gresham brought in five of seven targets for 64 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 22-16 loss to the Seahawks.
Gresham's reception total equaled a season best, while his yardage total represented a high-water mark on the campaign. The 29-year-old has scored in consecutive games and could be a sneaky fantasy option down the stretch due to his apparent rapport with quarterback Drew Stanton. He'll look to put together a successful encore to his Week 10 performance when the Cardinals tangle with the Texans on the road in Week 11.
Gresham tallied two catches, 23 yards and a touchdown off of three targets in Sunday's 20-10 win over the 49ers.
Gresham's second-quarter touchdown was his first score since Week 12 of last season. Gresham has a strong hold on the starting job with 69 offensive snaps on Sunday, but he plays in an Arizona offense that does not feature the tight end much. After eight catches in the first two games of the season, he's accumulated just nine in the last five contests. He's not fantasy starter material.
