The Arizona Republic - [Full Article]

Tight end should be a position of strength for the Cardinals, but that was supposed to be the case last year.

They will try again this year, probably with the same four players: Jeff King, Todd Heap, Robert Housler and Jim Dray. Last year, King was the only one of the four to play in all 16 games.

King is the best all-around player of the group, but he will miss the start of training camp after suffering a partially torn quadriceps tendon in off-season workouts.

Housler will be given every chance to become a breakout player. He's fast and displayed good hands in college. He participated in a lot of plays during off-season work as coaches tried to get him as much experience as possible.

Fantasy Impact: 

Heap is the only one of the four to make our TE list, and he likely won't get drafted at all, or if he does, very late based on his ADP. If you feel you've missed out on the TE position in your drafts this year, keep these guys in mind for later in the year. We'll also have to wait for the Cardinal QB situation to become more stable.
