AZ Central - [Full Article]

Through spring and summer, no Cardinals offensive player made a more positive impression than tight end John Carlson.

He caught almost every ball thrown to him — and there were a lot — and blocked better than coaches and the front office thought he would.

But in three preseason appearances, Carlson didn't catch a pass, though a touchdown against the Texans in game one was nullified by penalty.

Coach Bruce Arians doesn't make much of either end of that spectrum.

Fantasy Impact: 

Carlson is flying under the radar, but tight ends have never been a huge part of Bruce Arians' offense. It's possible that he works his way into a TE2/streaming type role since he is playing well enough to play the bulk of the snaps.
