News: Housler wasn't targeted during Sunday's win versus the Giants in New York and took the field for just 25-of-68 offense snaps for the Cardinals, FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports. Impact: The breakdown of snaps among Arizona's tight ends changed little from the opener -- 66 for John Carlson and 17 for rookie Troy Niklas on Sunday -- but both options were considered in the passing game by Drew Stanton, totaling three receptions for 59 yards in Week 2. Housler is the clear second fiddle to Carlson in the tight end pecking order, which hasn't afforded much relevance in fantasy to date.(RotoWire, )

News: Housler played 20-of-70 offensive snaps during Monday's win against the Chargers, FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports. Impact: Despite earning 41 less snaps than fellow tight end John Carlson, their respective lines were nearly identical, with Carlson gathering in his only target for 20 yards, while Housler caught one pass (on three targets) for 16 yards. Meanwhile, rookie Troy Niklas wasn't targeted on his 12 snaps, which isn't surprising behind two veteran options. Considering his overwhelming snap count compared to the other two, Carlson is the Cardinals' tight end to own, but the team's lack of a fullback forces more blocking assignments than the normal TE corps.(RotoWire, )
