Seals-Jones was the starter for the Cardinals last year and had mixed results in that role. He had 34 receptions for 343 yards and a touchdown. He was 29th overall in fantasy tight end scoring. Seals-Jones had double-digit fantasy points just three times. The Cardinals are bringing in competition for Seals-Jones, adding Charles Clay at tight end. Seals-Jones will need to pick up his game if he hopes to keep the starting job. Seals-Jones is a big tight end that runs solid routes and has the speed, strength to cause matchup problems for the opposition. He needs to work on his blocking and overall consistency at the position.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Seals-Jones got his chances last year and did not do a whole lot in that role. Don't reach for him come draft day. He is not likely to improve much on last year. He can get around 30 receptions for 300 yards and a few scores.
Fantasy players assumed 2018 would be Seals-Jones breakout season, but instead it turned into a sophomore snafu. But what was Seals-Jones supposed to do in Arizonas 32nd-ranked pass offense? His starting signal caller, Sam Bradford, was a total washout, and then Josh Rosen played so poorly in his rookie campaign that the Cardinals quickly decided he was not the future of the franchise. In the middle of the season the organization fired offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, too. So while Seals-Jones did not look like the second coming of Shannon Sharpe, there were plenty of reasons why he failed fantasy-wise. There is no way for Seals-Jones fantasy value to go but up this year. New head coach Kliff Kingsbury is well-known for orchestrating offenses that put up points and pass the ball a lot (albeit in college), and Arizona drafted Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray to be the quarterback. The Cards did not do much to upgrade the tight end position in the offseason with the ho-hum signing of veteran Charles Clay, so Seals-Jones is still the top tight end and could be able to double his 2018 numbers in 2019 now that the offense has been totally revamped from top to bottom.

Arizona Cardinals tight end Ricky Seals-Jones (neck) has been able to participate in organized team activities (OTAs), but he and fellow tight ends Charles Clay and Maxx Williams are finding the looks rather scarce in head coach Kliff Kingsbury's new spread offense. Early on in offseason practices the Cardinals have used a 10 Personnel package frequently, featuring four wide receivers, one running back and no tight ends on the field. RSJ, Clay and Williams might be fighting for scraps in the offense, and their fantasy outlooks are rather bleak at the moment.
