2013 Experience: 3rd Season

Fantasy Football Outlook: Despite failing to score a touchdown through his first two seasons in the league, I find Housler to be an interesting sleeper at his position coming into 2013. With Bruce Arians taking over as the Head Coach and the addition of Carson Palmer, Arizona’s offense has new life.

Housler may not have the skill to be a future top five option at his position, but the Cardinals are going to throw the football often, and opportunity should be there for the third year tight end to haul in over 60 receptions.

A better fit in PPR leagues, Housler isn’t likely to come off draft boards in leagues that only start one tight end. Keep an on Housler’s production over the course of the season, as he will likely emerge as a hot waiver wire pickup at some point.

Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections

With the addition of Todd Heap in free agency, rookie Rob Housler doesn’t figure to be a factor in his rookie season. While Housler has some skills in the passing game, he will have to wait for an opportunity, later in his career.

The Cardinals have never been known for tight ends over the years, but it looks like they are committed to making Rob Housler a presence in the offense. Coach Ken Whisenhunt has openly discussed changing the teams four receiver sets to using a tight end on the field most of the time. The report on Housler is that he will help this team in the middle of the field and projects as a possible sleeper tight end, to pickup off the waiver wire during the season.

The addition of Kevin Kolb or Kyle Orton will be essential for Housler to find success in the offense. Both have experience working with talented tight ends and Kolb had Brent Celek in Philadelphia, and Orton worked with Greg Olsen in Chicago. In fact, you could make the argument that the addition of Housler was a sign this team was going for one of these quarterbacks, as they have that previous experience.

Don’t look to select Housler as anything more than a late round selection in dynasty leagues, but he’s a name to remember as we move deeper into the season.
