Latest Updates

 

Rob Housler has fallen out of favor


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/14/2014) Tight end Rob Housler is currently No. 4 on the depth chart with the Cardinals, behind John Carlson, Jake Ballard and rookie Troy Niklas, reports ESPN.com. Housler is "just not the type of tight end head coach Bruce Arians prefers," the website said.

Housler is entering the final year of his contract. He caught 39 passes for 454 yards and a touchdown last season.


Rob Housler's role not safe?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/23/2014) The Cardinals have a bevy of tight ends on the roster including recent free-agent signee John Carlson and draft pick Troy Niklas. According to their official website, Carlson and veteran Jake Ballard had a lot of work in recent OTA workouts, leaving tight end Rob Housler in the precarious position of having to "work hard to stay up on the depth chart."

Housler posted career highs across the board last season, grabbing 39 passes for 454 yards and a touchdown. Those totals appear to be in jeopardy. 


Arians' style won't benefit Rob Housler


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/21/2014) Don't look for Cardinals tight end Rob Housler to have a big season in 2014. That's not how coach Bruce Arians uses tight ends, reports the team's official website.

Arians cited Heath Miller as the best tight end in the NFL because of his blocking.

"Tight ends for me block first, catch second," Arians said.

So for Housler, who is a catch-first guy, this isn't likely going to be a huge season when it comes to receptions. He had 39 catches for 454 yards and a touchdown in 2013 in his first season under Arians.


Rob Housler facing 'make-or-break' year


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2014) Cardinals tight end Rob Housler is entering the final year of his rookie deal and it's "likely a make-or-break season for him to stay healthy and be consistent," reports the team's website. Housler caught 39 passes for 454 yards and a touchdown last season while battling groin and ankle injuries.

The Cardinals need to add a tight end even if free agent backup Jim Dray returns, according to the website.


Cardinals get offensive contributions from role players in finale


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) The Cardinals received several offensive contributions from a few role players during Sunday's loss to the 49ers in Week 17.

Tight Rob Housler led the way with five grabs for 78 yards on six targets. Stepfan Taylor rushed for seven yards on two carries and had one reception for 7 yards. Jim Dray caught one pass for a gain of 18 yards. Jaron Brown and Brittan Golden were each targeted once but held without a grab in a 23-20 defeat.

Nine Cardinals cleared for regular season finale


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) The Cardinals have ruled the following players as active for Sunday's season finale against the 49ers in Week 17: John Abraham (groin), Darnell Dockett (shoulder), Rob Housler (groin), Rashad Johnson (ankle), Rashard Mendenhall (finger), Carson Palmer (ankle, right elbow), Matt Shaughnessy (groin), Drew Stanton (knee) and Daryl Washington (ankle).

Six Cardinals probable Week 17


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) Cardinals DT Darnell Dockett, TE Rob Housler, OL Nate Potter, LB Matt Shaughnessy, QB Drew Stanton and LB Daryl Washington are probable Week 17.

Housler has a groin injury, but practiced in full Thursday and Friday. Dockett is dealing with a shoulder issue.


Cardinals receive minor offensive contributions


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) A few Cardinals made small offensive contributions Week 16. Andre Roberts was limited to only two catches for 25 yards while Brittan Golden caught a 63-yard pass from Carson Palmer in the opening drive of the game for his only catch.

Jim Dray led all tight ends in receptions with three for 16 yards. Jake Ballard caught one of three targets for 17 yards. Rob Housler was targeted twice but held without a grab in a 17-10 victory.

Nine injured Cardinals get the green light for Week 16


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) The Cardinals have ruled wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (concussion), tight end Rob Housler (groin), quarterback Carson Palmer (ankle, right elbow), linebacker Matt Shaughnessy (groin), defensive back Justin Bethel (wrist), linebacker Karlos Dansby (foot), running back Andre Ellington (quadriceps), wide receiver Michael Floyd (ankle) and running back Rashard Mendenhall (finger) active for Sunday's contest against Seattle in Week 16.

Rob Housler listed as questionable


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2013) Cardinals tight end Rob Housler has been listed as questionable Week 16 against the Seahawks.

Housler is dealing with a groin injury. He was able to participate in limited practices Thursday and Friday. 


Rob Housler still out with groin injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2013) Cardinals tight end Rob Housler, who missed Week 15 with a groin injury, was unable to return to practice Wednesday, reports Fox Sports. Arizona is preparing to play at Seattle on Sunday.

Rob Housler looking to repeat Week 7 success


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/17/2013) Cardinals tight end Rob Housler caught a season-high seven passes for 53 yards in Arizona's Week 7 loss to the Seahawks. The teams face off again in Week 16, at Seattle. 

Housler was inactive Week 15 with a groin injury, so there's no guarantee he will play in this second go-round. But if he does, he remains a low-end option at tight end. 

The Seahawks have allowed two touchdowns to tight ends over the last three games, but they were scored by Jimmy Graham and Vernon Davis, two of the league's best. Seattle has allowed touchdowns to tight ends in just two other weeks this season. 

Housler can be left benched or on the waiver wire in most Fantasy formats.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Housler was questionable to play Week 14 due to ankle and hip injuries. He wound up second on the team in receiving yards, catching three passes for 42 yards. Housler has played a big role in Carson Palmer's recent hot streak. Over the past five games, Housler has 20 of his 34 receptions. He'll take on the Titans Week 15.

Rob Housler has 21 yards in loss


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/1/2013) Cardinals tight end Rob Housler caught three passes for 21 yards in Sunday's 24-21 loss to the Eagles. He was targeted six times. 

The 21 yards were the fewest in the last four games for Housler, who had averaged 59 receiving yards in his previous three games. 

The Cardinals face the Rams in Week 14. 


Rob Housler actually has a decent Week 13 matchup


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/27/2013) Cardinals tight end Rob Housler has been on a bit of a roll lately, with three straight 50-yard receiving games, and an average of 7.7 Fantasy points per game in that span.

All of this production -- along with Housler's first touchdown of the season -- has come after the team's Week 9 bye. The Eagles, his Week 13 opponent, have been particularly tough against tight ends, allowing 5.4 Fantasy points per game -- the third-lowest average in the league. But the Eagles have struggled against the more offensive-minded tight ends. Timothy Wright caught seven passes for 91 yards, Jason Witten caught four passes for 48 yards, Antonio Gates caught eight for 124, and Julius Thomas caught four passes for 43 yards.

Housler has become a larger part of this offense since the bye, and should continue to see targets. He's more of a deep league option, but Housler does have some things going for him heading into Sunday's game, especially for a desperate owner in need of a streaming start.

Rob Housler turns in third straight 50 yard receiving game


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Cardinals tight end Rob Housler had his third straight game with at least 50 receiving yards Week 12.

Housler caught four passes for 51 yards. He received five targets, which tied for third on the team. After missing the first two games, Housler took a few weeks to get going. Over the past five games, Housler has caught 22 of his 24 passes. While he's only scored one touchdown over that period, he's clearly emerging as a viable target for Carson Palmer. 

Housler will take on the Eagles Week 13. 


Rob Housler totals 70 receiving yards Week 11


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Cardinals tight end Rob Housler finished with 70 receiving yards Week 11 at Jacksonville, which was the second-highest total of his career. He also finished with six catches on nine targets.

Housler came close to scoring in consecutive games on a few occasions. Housler was targeted on a 27-yard touchdown pass in the first half, but the pass was out of his reach. Housler was then targeted on a 3-yard touchdown in the second half, but the pass was thrown too high. Prior to that target, Housler had a 15-yard catch down to the 10-yard line and a 2-yard catch down to the 3-yard line.

Housler also had a few more chances to put up better numbers. He had an 11-yard catch called back in the first half because of a holding penalty. Carson Palmer missed a wide open Housler on a pass near the sideline in the first half, which would have resulted in big yardage had the thrown been on target.

Housler has at least four catches in four of his last five games. The Cardinals are back in action Week 12 vs. Indianapolis.


Rob Housler great Week 11 Fantasy sleeper


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/13/2013) Cardinals tight end Rob Housler achieved a career milestone Week 10 vs. Houston, recording his first NFL touchdown. The chances of Housler scoring again Week 11 at Jacksonville look promising.

Tight ends have had very good success against Jacksonville. Through nine games against the Jaguars, tight ends average 62.3 receiving yards and 11.3 Fantasy points per week, which is the second-highest average.

In the last seven games, tight ends averaged 84 receiving yards, 13.9 Fantasy points and have totaled eight touchdowns against Jacksonville.

If Cardinals receiver Michael Floyd is out Sunday with a sprained shoulder, then it could mean more targets for Housler. Even if Floyd plays, Housler is still a good Fantasy start because tight ends have had plenty of success against Jacksonville.
