News From The Past 90 Days
Injury TE Troy Niklas to have ankle surgery Thu.
Same ankle he injured late last season
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Jun 10, 1:17 pm

Arizona Cardinals
TE Troy Niklas set for minor surgery tomorrow on the ankle which bothered him last year. Expected to be ready for training camp. (Kyle Odegard on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The tight end position in the Cardinals offense has been a fantasy wasteland and it's not getting better anytime soon. With John Carlson's retirement and now Niklas' recurring ankle issues, the Cardinals may peruse the waiver wire for free agent help.

TE John Carlson calls it a career
Seven-year veteran had a history of concussions
By: Mike Krueger | Tue May 5, 1:20 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Tight end leaves the game after one season in Arizona and seven NFL seasons. John Carlson signed as a free agent before the 2014 season. Itís the second straight year the Cardinals have lost a tight end to retirement. Last year in the middle of training camp, Jake Ballard, whose knees could no longer take the pounding of the game, called it a career. (

FFToday's Take: With Carlson's retirement, Troy Niklas becomes the favorite to lead the team in receiving from the tight end position with Darren Fells filling a secondary role. However, the Cardinals don't feature the tight end in their offense and as a result, Niklas will have very little fantasy value in 2015.
