Rob Housler Injury Update: Probable For Game, Doubtful For Fantasy Production

Rob Housler is probable for Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Rob Housler (hamstring) put in a full week of practice and is listed as probable for the home opener against the division-rival Seahawks.

Analysis: Housler has gained some street cred in the valley for being an above-average pass catcher. For a 6'5", 250-pound man, he does need to work on his blocking, though. Todd Heap is also fairly healthy, so Housler will have to share targets and snaps with the former Pro Bowler. The Cardinals might have one of the worst offensive lines in the league, so John Skelton will have to get the ball out of his hands quickly. Housler could emerge as a waiver-wire add should Heap get hurt down the line, but he's really not worth a roster spot in almost any league.
