Depth Chart
Although there is technically a tight end position in Arizona, you really wouldn’t know it based on their fantasy production at the position over the years. John Carlson led the team’s tight ends with 33 catches for 350 yards this past season, but that was only good enough to make him the No. 33 tight end in the league. Both Carlson and the team’s No. 2 tight end, Rob Housler, left during the offseason, leaving the position completely up for grabs. The players most likely to get playing time seem to be free-agent signee Jermaine Gresham and Troy Niklas, a second-year tight end who made just three receptions during his entire rookie campaign. The Notre Dame alum was a second-round pick in 2014, so there’s reason to believe the team has confidence in him heading into this year, but fantasy owners shouldn’t buy into it until we see something on the field. The Bruce Arians offense seems to favor tight ends blocking versus catching, so don’t expect much out of Gresham or Niklas in this Arizona offense.

Same ankle he injured late last season

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.
