Jermaine Gresham And The Cincinnati Bengals Offense | 2010 Fantasy Projections
The Cincinnati Bengals needed to up grade in the passing game to help Carson Palmer and force defense to not just focus on Cedric Benson and Chad Ochocinco. This offseason they signed receiver Antonio Bryant and they also selected tight end Jermaine Gresham in the first round.
Gresham missed most of his senior season with a knee injury so it will be hard to say if he can come in and start from week one on. The Bengals have also admitted that they will ease Gresham into the offense this summer and that is probably a good idea as he is still gaining his strength back.
Look for Gresham to help this offense at some point in the 2010 season but not be a fantasy option until at least the second half of the year. As soon as Gresham is ready to make an impact with the Bengals, he should get looks from Palmer every week as they do need him to be a productive player in the offense.
Still, his fantasy value will probably be stronger in future years as he is just not at peak physical strength for this season.
