2019 Fantasy Outlook
Seals-Jones burst onto the scene with a 12-201-3 line from Weeks 11-15 of the 2017 season. The Cardinals' ensuing coaching change yielded a feeble offense last year, and just about all members of the skill positions suffered as a result. Seals-Jones was among them, resulting in miserable output overall (5.0 YPT and a 49 percent catch rate on 69 targets). During the offseason, the Cardinals added Charles Clay, Maxx Williams and 2019 seventh-rounder Caleb Wilson to the TE room. One look at the group, and Seals-Jones sticks out as the likely candidate to prosper under new head mean Kliff Kingsbury. Read Past Outlooks

Seals-Jones (neck) was an active participant in the Cardinals' offseason program, Bob McManaman of The Arizona Republic reports. "We're doing a lot of rotating and just trying to put the pieces together," Seals-Jones said during OTAs. "Coach (Kliff Kingsbury) is throwing everybody in and just seeing what everybody can do, from the vets to the rookies."
ANALYSIS
After the signing of Charles Clay early in the offseason, the Cardinals extended an exclusive rights tender to Seals-Jones in March, thereby rounding out the top of the tight end depth chart. Seals-Jones has displayed pass-catching acumen in his two-year career, reeling off 11.8 YPC and four TDs on his 46 receptions. On his third go-around, he'll have to get in the good graces of another coach-quarterback combo, but at least he has experience with 2019 first overall pick Kyler Murray, as the two were teammates at Texas A&M in 2015. If Seals-Jones can gain a better part of the TE snap share this season, he may finally break through in what's expected to be a high-tempo offense that features three- and even four-wide sets.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Seals-Jones offers two of the sexiest words for any potential breakout tight end: "converted receiver." We're not looking for grunt-workers and blockers; we want guys who can create mismatches downfield. Given what Seals-Jones did last season with his 12 catches (16.8 YPC, three TDs), it's astounding the Cardinals didn't feature him more. Heck, RSJ had just two targets - and zero catches - in his final two appearances. But that was then, this is now. The Cardinals have new coaches, new quarterbacks and the same spotty depth at tight end. Arizona also has a messy situation at WR - only Larry Fitzgerald is a sure thing - though RB David Johnson figures to catch a bunch of passes. Some secondary target is going to quickly acclimate himself with the new regime, and Seals-Jones has every opportunity to enter the forefront of that conversation while fellow TE Jermaine Gresham rehabs from a Week 17 torn Achilles. The second-year tight end was charged with assault, criminal trespassing and disorderly following a July arrest, but he's unlikely to face any punishment from the NFL before the start of the season.
