TE - ARI
Week 8 Outlook
Dan Arnold catches 4-of-4 targets for 39 yards in a 31-21 loss to the Panthers in Week 4.
Arnold has yet to see more than four targets in any one game this season. He also has yet to score a touchdown. Arnold isn't rosterable at this point until he becomes more involved in the offense. The Cardinals will travel to New York to take on the Jets in Week 5.
Dan Arnold caught one pass for 11 yards in Sunday's loss to the Detroit Lions.
Arnold only has six receptions this season and shouldn't be rostered at this time.
Dan Arnold finished with two receptions for 21 receiving yards across two targets during Sunday's 24-20 win against the 49ers.
Arnold still seems to be the top option at the TE position for the Cardinals. Currently he does not show a reason to target him on waivers, other than as a low-upside depth piece for larger season-long leagues. His next action will be Week 2 against the Washington Football Team who recently was torched by the Ertz-Goedert duo in Philadelphia.
According to Cardinals beat writer Kyle Odegard, third-year TE Dan Arnold has consistently been the team’s top pass-catching option at the position during camp.
Odegard notes that Maxx Williams is the starter when healthy, but that Arnold is more of a threat in the passing game, so the two tight ends could complement one another. Arnold played well down the stretch last season when given the opportunity, and he should be able to build on that performance and his performances in practice this preseason. He could be a sneaky very late-round target in fantasy drafts.
Cardinals TE Dan Arnold has a chance to make a “real impact” this season in Arizona as the top pass-catching tight end option for QB Kyler Murray.
Multiple analysts pegged the Arizona Cardinals as a team that would surely target a tight end in the Draft, but they didn’t end up selecting one. They seem content to go into the season with Arnold, Maxx Williams, and Darrell Daniels. Out of the three, it’s Arnold who is believed to be the best bet to make some noise in the passing game. The Cardinals picked up the 6’6” TE from New Orleans late last season. He played three games for them, catching six balls for 102 yards and two touchdowns. The team believes he has the ability to dominate in the redzone as a big target for Murray and hopes he can produce for them from the tight end position this season.
