How Much Better Can Trey McBride Be In 2024?

Cardinals OC Drew Petzing believes TE Trey McBride is capable of taking his game to "another level" this season. McBride is coming off a breakout 2023 season, catching 81 balls for 825 yards and three TDs.

What They're Saying

“I certainly feel like he has another level that he can take his game to, and we’re gonna push him to try to get him there," Petzing said of McBride.

2024 Fantasy Football Impact

McBride wound up finishing seventh among TEs in PPR points last year. And he did it despite:

  1. Underachieving in the TD department. McBride scored on just 3.7% of his catches -- well below the league-wide average TE TD rate of around 7.4%.
  2. Playing behind TE Zach Ertz and totaling just 15 catches over the first seven games of the season.

McBride was a stat-piling machine after Ertz's season-ending quad injury, racking up 85 targets, 66 catches, 655 yards, and three TDs. The targets, catches, and yards all ranked top three among TEs. McBride ranked third at the position in PPR points over his final 10 games.

Entering his third NFL season at 24, McBride is certainly a candidate to take another leap forward in 2024. He faces increased target competition with the arrival of rookie WR Marvin Harrison Jr. But Harrison and a healthy QB Kyler Murray should also help this Cardinals offense score more points this year.

McBride is a good bet for top-5 fantasy production with the upside to lead TEs in scoring.
