News: Fells played 48 of the Cardinals' 70 offensive snaps during Sunday's loss at San Francisco, Football Outsiders reports.
Impact: Fells' snap count significantly outpaced fellow tight ends John Carlson and Rob Housler in each of the final four contests. The development was likely spurred by the duo's lacking abilities as blockers, but Fells nonetheless notched five catches (on 11 targets) for 71 yards during that stretch, including a career-best 39 yards on two grabs in Week 17. Expect him to get the nod in Saturday's wild-card game at Carolina against a defense that gave up three touchdown receptions to tight ends in the last five games of the regular season.
