Clay got little work in a reserve role for the Cardinals last year, catching 18 passes for 237 yards and a score. This was his lowest reception total since 2012. Clay has fewer than 240 yards each of the last two seasons. He has moved to a reserve role at this stage of his career, a role he will try to earn again this year. Clay is a good blocker with big-play ability at tight end. He has good speed to stretch the field and can make plays after the catch.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Clay isn't getting the looks as the past few seasons. Expect more of the same. A big rebound is not expected. He could get around 25 receptions for 250 yards and a score or two.
One of the many mistakes Rex Ryan made while in Buffalo was to sign Charles Clay to a massive contract after one solid season in Miami. Finally, the Bills have been able to rid themselves of this mistake this offseason, by letting him go to Arizona and sign with the lowly Cardinals.Whether he is the starter or backup he will have a tough time in the desert. Ricky Seals-Jones is there and is not a stellar player by any means, and the Cardinals know this. This is why after a season with just 21 receptions and 185 yards in 13 games he decided to go and take an offer. The fantasy world is all atwitter with the buzz of Kliff Kingsbury bringing his air raid offense to Arizona. This means good things for the receivers for sure, includingLarry Fitzgeraldand Christian Kirk, with David Johnson also likely seeing a bump. Eventually others will get involved as well. Rookies Andy Isabella and Hakeem Butler are coming in with quarterback Kyler Murray, and these players, along with Kirk and Johnson, will be the core of the team once Fitzgerald decides to finally hang up his cleats. Nowhere in this paragraph did you see me mention a tight end. Not Ricky Seals-Jones and certainly not Charles Clay.At this point of his career Clay is a bounce around tight end. Someone you bring into backup whatever player is already there in case of injury. This is not the type of player you would draft in a fantasy league, and nor should he be the type of player you want to keep on a dynasty roster.
