Arizona Cardinals TE John Carlson tops the team's first depth chart of the preseason, with TEs Rob Housler and Troy Niklas listed as the top backups. TEs Darren Fells and Andre Hardy are listed on the third-team offense.
Fantasy Tip: Even as the starter, the tight end isn't a huge cog in the Arizona offense. If Carlson hangs onto the starting job, he would still only be worth a look as a backup fantasy option or a potential starter when you need a bye-week replacement.
