2019 Fantasy Outlook
Seals-Jones burst onto the scene with a 12-201-3 line from Weeks 11-15 of the 2017 season. The Cardinals' ensuing coaching change yielded a feeble offense last year, and just about all members of the skill positions suffered as a result. Seals-Jones was among them, resulting in miserable output overall (5.0 YPT and a 49 percent catch rate on 69 targets). During the offseason, the Cardinals added Charles Clay, Maxx Williams and 2019 seventh-rounder Caleb Wilson to the TE room. One look at the group, and Seals-Jones sticks out as the likely candidate to prosper under new head mean Kliff Kingsbury. Read Past Outlooks

The Chiefs and Seals-Jones agreed to terms of a contract Friday, Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports reports.
ANALYSIS
According to Paylor, the deal encompasses the 2020 season. Seals-Jones has been moderately productive in three pro campaigns, averaging 12.9 yards per catch and scoring eight touchdowns on 60 career receptions between the Cardinals and Browns. The Chiefs don't have much depth behind Travis Kelce, so Seals-Jones may be the frontrunner for the No. 2 role.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Seals-Jones offers two of the sexiest words for any potential breakout tight end: "converted receiver." We're not looking for grunt-workers and blockers; we want guys who can create mismatches downfield. Given what Seals-Jones did last season with his 12 catches (16.8 YPC, three TDs), it's astounding the Cardinals didn't feature him more. Heck, RSJ had just two targets - and zero catches - in his final two appearances. But that was then, this is now. The Cardinals have new coaches, new quarterbacks and the same spotty depth at tight end. Arizona also has a messy situation at WR - only Larry Fitzgerald is a sure thing - though RB David Johnson figures to catch a bunch of passes. Some secondary target is going to quickly acclimate himself with the new regime, and Seals-Jones has every opportunity to enter the forefront of that conversation while fellow TE Jermaine Gresham rehabs from a Week 17 torn Achilles. The second-year tight end was charged with assault, criminal trespassing and disorderly following a July arrest, but he's unlikely to face any punishment from the NFL before the start of the season.
