Jermaine Gresham is probable for Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jermaine Gresham (knee) practiced all week in a full capacity and is listed as probable for Monday night's game against the Ravens.

Analysis: Gresham gave us quite a scare in the preseason when he went down, but he is a lock to play against the division-rival Ravens. Baltimore is stingy in allowing fantasy points to tight end and they ranked 24th in that department. The Bengals have an extremely young receiving corps with sophomore A.J. Green as the unquestioned leader of the pack. Behind A.J., Cincinnati also has rookies Mohamed Sanu and Marvin Jones and they appear to be next in line for targets once they get their feet wet. Gresham has a good chance to be second in targets and it should be interesting to see if Andy Dalton can make the next step. He's a low-end TE1 this week.
