2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

John Carlson's sudden retirement in May removed a veteran presence from the tight-end ranks in Arizona, and general manager Steve Keim compensated with the late-July signing of Jermaine Gresham. While the former Bengal is the likely candidate to vacuum up Carlson's 55 targets from a year ago, Fells and 2014 second-round pick Troy Niklas are the primary holdovers to consider for reps in the Cardinals' offense. When Niklas' rookie season ended after Week 11 last fall, Fells took full advantage of the opportunity, receiving 56.9 percent of the TE snaps as opposed to 35.2 percent for Carlson and 30.2 percent for Rob Housler. During that six-game stretch, Fells hauled in six catches (on 11 targets) for 72 yards and one touchdown. The presence of Gresham hinders Fells' potential, though, due to the former's previous relationship with quarterback Carson Palmer during his rookie campaign in 2010.

2014

Acting as tight end depth, but a Week 1 roster spot appears to be far-fetched.
