Wildcard Weekend – John Carlson vs. Carolina
John Carlson had only one target last week against the 49ers, a six yard reception. Meanwhile, Darren Fells was targeted three times, and one has to wonder if Carlson’s veteran security is giving way to Fells’ youthful upside.
Either way, the Cardinals are on their third quarterback, facing a resurgent Carolina defense, and they haven’t been using the tight end position much anyway. While the tight end spot isn’t deep in this wildcard round, pushing Carlson into the top ten in our rankings, he’s a very risky option and fantasy owners should try to stay in our top 4 or top 6 if at all possible.
