|A second-round pick last year, McBride collected 20 receptions, 219 yards, and a touchdown over the final five weeks to give the Cardinals hope that they've found a long-term solution at tight end. He may be hard pressed to usurp the starting job from Ertz right away, but don't discount the above scenario where the veteran is moved at the trade deadline. While you'd have to be in a very deep league to consider McBride on draft day, he could be a priority in-season pickup, so stick him on your watch list and be prepared to scoop him up if circumstances dictate.

Hasn't played since Week 7

TE Zach Ertz has requested & been granted his release from the Arizona Cardinals.
The 3-Time Pro Bowler plans to sign with a contender and make a run at his 2nd Super Bowl ring. (JJ Watt on X)|
FFToday's Take: Ertz last played in Week 7 and has been on Injured Reserve with a quad injury. He's yet to have has 21-day window opened. In the meantime, the Cardinals have moved forward with Trey McBride at the position and he's become an integral part of their offense. Ertz will go through waivers before becoming an unrestricted free agent.
| Zach Ertz lands on Injured Reserve, quad injury|
Out at least four games

|The #Cardinals are placing three-time Pro Bowl TE Zach Ertz on injured reserve with a quad strain suffered during the game Sunday, sources tell me and @MikeGarafolo.
Ertz is out at least four games, but the plan is for him to return this season. Ertz has 27 catches this season. (Tom Pelissero on X)|
FFToday's Take: Ertz has been keeping the seat warm for Trey McBride who should now function as the Cardinals starting tight end. McBride will have some TE2 appeal moving forward but doesn't have a lot of upside in this low-powered offense.
