2014 Outlook: Gresham was dreadful in 2013. He finished dead last in average yards at the catch among qualified tight ends, was useless as a run blocker and didn't do much in pass protection. He was also called for a mind-boggling nine penalties, most among non-QB skill players. Tyler Eifert was a first-rounder last year, and if the Bengals are being honest, they'd like to see Eifert improve so they can release Gresham. If both men stick on the roster, they'll endure another frustrating platoon season and have little individual fantasy value.
2014 Outlook: Now that Jermichael Finley is gone, one of Green Bay's tight ends could pop this season. We're just not sure which one. Quarless is a natural candidate; despite his having just 56 career catches, the Packers paid him decent money this winter. Brandon Bostick and rookie Richard Rodgers could also be in the mix, but between them they have only seven pro grabs. Quarless is an interesting flier pick -- if only because he has the most experience catching passes from Aaron Rodgers -- but he's best cast as a waiver-wire addition.
2014 Outlook: An unheralded rookie out of UConn, Griffin took over the Texans' starting job in December after Owen Daniels and Garrett Graham suffered leg injuries. And though Houston's season was headed into the toilet, Griffin played well. Most important, he looked like a more attractive target than the lumbering Graham usually does. With Daniels out of the picture and Bill O'Brien in as coach, two-TE sets will become the norm in Houston. For the moment, that probably means a frustrating split of targets too, especially with rookie C.J. Fiedorowicz coming aboard. But Griffin is the guy we have our eyes on.
