Trey McBride expected to play larger role for Cardinals

Arizona Cardinals tight end Trey McBride is expected to play a larger role while Zach Ertz (quad) is on injured reserve, per Tyler Drake of Arizona Sports.

What It Means:

McBride was already trending up the past two weeks and that should continue with Ertz heading to the shelf. He registered a season-high 37.5% offensive snap rate in Week 7 and drew a season-best 6 targets. Over the last two games, the 2022 second-rounder has more targets (11) and yards (91) than the first five games combined. McBride has a tough draw against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 8, but he should see a notable uptick in playing time and usage.

Ertz is averaging only 1.13 yards per route run this season while McBride averages a robust 2.74 yards per route run. Over the last two games, McBride out-snapped Ertz 75-66 and caught 7 passes on 11 targets for 91 yards. Ertz totaled 5 catches and 41 yards on 9 targets in that same span. The Ravens haven't given up a touchdown to a tight end this season and they've allowed the fewest FanDuel points per game to the position.
