Trey McBride Week 1 Outlook - Cardinals at Commanders

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Sun, Sep 10th 2023, 12:05pm EDT

Should Zach Ertz not be available, that would tee up McBride to be the Cardinals' clear-cut TE1 for Week 1. McBride was the TE11 from Weeks 14-18 as his role expanded due to injuries on the Cardinals roster. His major highlight came against the Falcons in Week 17, where he caught 7 balls for 78 yards and 1 TD on ten targets with Marquise Brown active in the lineup. That earned him a top-3 weekly fantasy finish, making him one of just 23 unique tight ends to do so. His decorated college profile - 1,125 receiving yards and 30% target rate per route run in 2021 - suggests he can post points with a starting role. It's not crazy to think he could be the No. 2 pass-catcher on this offense in 2023. But let's see how things shake out first in Week 1 with a total unknown at quarterback.
