1.) Trey McBride vs. Los Angeles Rams

Even before tight end Zach Ertz went onto the IR, fellow tight end Trey McBride was slowly becoming more involved in the Arizona offense. In two of his last four games, McBride has passed 20+ fantasy points, and has been targeted 16 times total in his last two games. The Cardinals have been more competitive since their Week 9 disaster against the Cleveland Browns. Going into this game, McBride finished last week second in targets and receptions for the Cardinals.

Next. Matt Canada. Will firing of Matt Canada make your Pittsburgh Steelers players relevant in fantasy football again?. dark

Even though he only has one receiving touchdown on the season, he gets his looks and should continue heading into this Week 12 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams. With Kyler Murray back in the lineup, McBride’s ceiling goes up more than what it was before and McBride is an easy security blanket for Murray if he faces pressure upfront. Look for Murray to look towards McBride as a redzone threat, or even just to get out of a pass rush.
