Not sure he is the best kept secret out there. he was the 3rd 2nd year WR off the board in 1 (Blackmon/Gordon) and 4th in another (+Wright).
Right around Reggie Wayne/Greg Jennings area in those dynasty drafts and several rounds ahead of Quick/Hill/Randle.
Both drafts happened after the Palmer to Arizona deal was done though so maybe not shocking.
Also maybe redraft he may go lower where Reggie's age doesn't work against him so much

Seems like Arians doesn't really use TE's that much though, and Housler may be needed to stay in and block more with that godawful Arizona O-line. Now that I think about it, I'd rather draft Jordan Cameron.

The sleeper player on the Cardinals this year is TE Rob Housler. Palmer loves to throw to his TE when pressured. He turned Brandon Myer's into a PPR stud last season.
I think I commented on this in another thread, Palmer never targetted TEs in Cincinnatti (or year 1 in Oakland), Arians has never had a TE go off under his watch.
I think Myers and the coverages they were getting last year deserve some credit. Housler could indeed have a good season but it's also just as likely he catches 40-50 balls and has a mediocre season. I think it will depend on his abilities, and on his ability alone I think he qualifies as a sleeper but I don't think it's because Palmer leans on TEs.

- fitz will guarantee single covergae for him
- think palmer helps him become a better wr with much better accuracy than hes used to
- has generally been called most impressive player in training camp/OTA's
- has the talent
- palmer has never really ever keyed in one one receiver(cincy, oakland, etc) despite putting up big numbers; meaning he will be spreading it around more than the fitz owners would like to think
im hoping for 70 catches/1000 yards/6 td's
"He gets it, he understands it," Palmer said earlier in camp. "He has had a natural feel for getting open in zones, which is something you're not taught. You just sit there and watch film with a guy forever and you either have it or it's something that takes years to develop. Phenomenal player."

To the guy who said Palmer passes to his TE a lot, who was his TE in Cinci prior to Gresham?? I honestly forgot bc I'm pretty sure he didn't go to him much at all. Maybe I'm brain farting though

yup completely agree
It's good for his sleeper value that he's been quiet. Nothing has changed in the last month. He's still one of my favorite breakout WRs

Coach Bruce Arians said Michael Floyd "has improved dramatically from the first minicamp to now."
Floyd has just two catches for 20 yards through 36 preseason snaps, but he's been raising eyebrows in practice as the unquestioned No. 2 wideout. "Route running, his understanding of concepts, hot (reads), the whole package," Arians said. "He's bought in. He's playing two to three different positions. I'm really pleased with where he's at right now." A physically imposing wideout in Arians' passing-friendly scheme, Floyd remains on track for a breakout season.
Rotoworld trying to jinx this guy or what?
