2020 Fantasy Outlook
Arnold's first three pro seasons were characterized by injury and lack of opportunity in New Orleans, and ultimately he was subject to waivers last December. The Cardinals pounced on the 2017 undrafted free agent, who made an instant mark on rookie signal-caller Kyler Murray. Over the final three games of the campaign, the 6-6, 220-pound tight end notched six catches (on 10 targets) for 102 yards and two touchdowns, earning praise from Murray for his size and skills. Arnold is slated to be the No. 2 TE behind Maxx Williams in 2020, but his connection with Murray may result in the occasional flash. Read Past Outlooks

The Panthers and Arnold agreed to a two-year contract Friday, Peter Schrager of Fox Sports reports.
ANALYSIS
Since the Cardinals plucked him off waivers in December 2019, Arnold developed a nice connection with Kyler Murray, reeling in 37 of 55 passes for 540 yards and six touchdowns in 19 games. Such production equates to an impressive 9.8 yards per target, with 16.2 percent of his catches going for scores. Arnold will slot in at the top of the Panthers' tight end depth chart.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Arnold was unable to crack the Saints' 53-man roster as an undrafted rookie in 2017, but he broke through after converting to tight end during the 2018 offseason. Listed at 6-foot-6 and 220 pounds, Arnold brings ideal size at the position, while his non-elite speed (4.63 40-yard-dash time) is less of a concern at tight end than it was when he played receiver. Since he was still getting his feet wet at tight end, Arnold wasn't used much in the first half of the season, but he flashed some promising upside from Weeks 10 through 13. During that four-game stretch, Arnold snagged 10 of 13 targets for 115 yards, with three of his receptions going for 20-plus yards. While the Saints' decision to replace Benjamin Watson with one of the league's more adept pass-catching tight ends in Jared Cook hinders Arnold's outlook, coach Sean Payton will find ways to get Arnold on the field more often in 2019 if the 24-year-old makes the strides the staff believes he can after a second offseason of work at the new position.
