The Cardinals once again have an NFL-caliber quarterback. Rejoice fantasy freaks! Whether they have an NFL-caliber offensive line is another question. Housler is another one of the athletic marvels who call themselves tight end. He made a big jump last year from 12 to 45 catches. The one stat that did not improve was his zero touchdowns. The 9.3 yards a catch last year wasn’t a pretty stat either.

Ryan Lindley will not be starting this year. It’s the Carson Palmer show. Housler will be a player you can pick up as your second tight end, and you probably can take him as the last guy off the board. That opens you up to stock up on the sleeper wideouts and running backs. For him to get 50 catches and five touchdowns this year isn’t much of a stretch.
