Gresham (illness) was a full practice participant Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gresham is already past the illness that forced a DNP on Wednesday. With touchdowns in back-to-back games, he'll try to make it three Sunday against a Redskins defense that has conceded three TDs to tight ends over the last four outings.

Gresham was unable to practice Wednesday due to an illness, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gresham has emerged as a consistent threat in the Cardinals' passing attack over the last four contests, notching at least 30 yards in four straight and scoring touchdowns in back-to-back games. Although he's come down with an illness, he has plenty of time to recover in time for Sunday's outing against the Redskins.

Gresham gathered in five of 10 passes for 35 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's loss in Atlanta.

EDGE Analysis

Gresham has wrested control of tight end in Arizona, earning 62 of 66 offensive snaps Sunday. Meanwhile, the only other healthy bodies at the position (Darren Fells and Hakeem Valles) combined for eight. The breakdown hasn't been so stark since Gresham took on the majority of work in Week 5, but he's now reached 30 yards receiving in four straight games and hit pay dirt in back-to-back contests. With sustained production comes relevance, and Gresham may be conjuring some of it from his days as the Bengals' top TE.

Gresham recorded four catches (on six targets) for 37 yards during Sunday's 23-20 win against the 49ers.

EDGE Analysis

The most-used tight end in Arizona for five consecutive games, Gresham again led the corps with 68 of the 79 offensive snaps. Consequently, he received six of the seven targets afforded TE -- Hakeem Valles got the other -- resulting in his second-highest yardage total of the season. Gresham has actually increased his output each contest during the aforementioned stretch, but with a cumulative 11 receptions (on 18 targets) for 102 yards, he doesn't pique much, if any, interest on the fantasy front.

Gresham caught three of five passes for 32 yards during Sunday's loss at Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

After posting 41 yards receiving in Week 1, Gresham was targeted exactly one time in each of the next three games, only for all three to fall incomplete. However, he's increased his production in four straight contests, partly due to a series of ailments befalling fellow tight end Darren Fells (ankle). Averaging 5.4 YPT isn't exactly appealing for fantasy purposes, but Gresham has been the Cardinals' most-used TE during the aforementioned four-game stretch.

Gresham tallied two receptions (on four targets) for 15 yards during Sunday's tie with the Seahawks.

EDGE Analysis

Gresham again dominated the snaps afforded Cardinals tight ends in Week 7, receiving 82 of the 95 on offense versus Ifeanyi Momah's nine, Darren Fells' eight, and Hakeem Valles' three. Unfortunately for Gresham, the usage didn't translate to the box score, and Momah made both of his catches count, racking up 50 yards total. If the preceding breakdown of snaps holds, though, Gresham is the best bet to post a relevant line due to the untenable nature of that trio's respective workloads.

Gresham recorded one reception (on two targets) for 14 yards in Monday's win against the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

For the second game in a row, Gresham was able to gobble up a plurality of TE snaps in the Cardinals' offense, following up 57 of 68 snaps in Week 5 with 73 of 77 on Monday. Of course, he experienced an uptick in the first outing due to Darren Fells' bout with a stinger, but the latter was back in the fold this week. While he started opposite Gresham, Fells received 31 offensive snaps Monday, indicating he's still less than 100 percent. No matter who garners more reps on a weekly basis, Arizona's tight ends are mostly contained to blocking duties, which will keep both Gresham and Fells on the vast majority of fantasy waiver wires.

Gresham garnered 57 of the Cardinals' 68 snaps in Thursday's victory at San Francisco, yet he caught his only pass for four yards.

EDGE Analysis

The Cardinals kicked off the season spreading the wealth at tight end among Gresham, Darren Fells (stinger), and Troy Niklas (wrist), but injuries to the last two have forced head coach Bruce Arians to rely on the veteran of the group. Indeed, with Niklas on injured reserve and Fells inactive in Week 5, Hakeem Valles (26) and Ifeanyi Momah (two) combined to log less than half of Gresham's snap count. Such a breakdown of snaps will likely reign until Fells is healthy enough to take the field.

Gresham notched four receptions (on as many targets) for 41 yards in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

After a season in the Cardinals' system and even further removed from back surgery in the aftermath of the 2014 season, Gresham may be resembling the tight end that posted at least 400 receiving yards in each of his five years with the Bengals. Hurting his cause, though, is the breakdown of snaps in the TE corps. While Darren Fells led the way with 23 (of 61 snaps) in Week 1, Gresham was right behind him with 22, and Troy Niklas also scooped up 20. If head coach Bruce Arians continues to be equitable with the trio's snaps, Gresham is an unlikely candidate to hit on a weekly basis.

Gresham hauled in one of two targets for 10 yards during Sunday's preseason defeat at Houston.

EDGE Analysis

After missing much of training camp due to discomfort in both his hamstring and back, Gresham has taken the field in the Cardinals' last two exhibitions. His standing behind Darren Fells remains clear, though, as all three preseason targets have arrived via backup Drew Stanton's right arm. The days of an intriguing Gresham are in the rearview mirror, especially after surgery in March of 2015 to repair a herniated disk.
