Dobbs had high praise for the second-year tight end, who had a great game last week. Now the public is unsure as to if Dobbs will be McBride’s quarterback against Baltimore. However, his words have to give Cardinals fans excitement for the young tight end.

The Cardinals quarterback showed his respect to Ertz as well, wishing him a speedy recovery. In the same breath, he claimed every time McBride gets the ball in his hands it’s “an explosive pass.” Arizona’s tight end made some exceptional plays last Sunday against the Seahawks. Dobbs describe the standout play, where McBride hurdled a Seahawks safety “standing flat footed in the middle of the field.”

McBride’s output has steadily increased over the last three weeks. Just four weeks ago he was receiving one target a game, last week he had six targets against the Seahawks. McBride is starting to look like a must add onto your fantasy squad for this upcoming throwdown of the birds.

The Arizona Cardinals will be playing host to the Baltimore Ravens this Sunday, with kickoff coming at 1:25 MST. Where Trey McBride will get the start at tight end in replacement for veteran tight end Zach Ertz.
