Sam Bradford - QBPosted 6/17/18 6:30pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Sam Bradford (knee) saw more reps during team drills as minicamp progressed, and he said limiting his reps has helped him prepare physically and mentally. 'I can really build on what we had done here and coming to training camp ready to go,' Bradford said. 'I feel like we've done a great job of sticking to the plan,' Bradford said. 'I think the plan has worked and my body feels really good right now.'
Huddle Up: He is expected to open the year as the starter, and while Josh Rosen will be waiting in the wings, Bradford can be a midrange QB2 as long as long as he has the starting gig.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 6/15/18 4:02pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Sam Bradford likely will be the starting quarterback for the team's Week 1 game even though QB Josh Rosen performed well during offseason workouts, in the opinion of AZCardinals.com's Darren Urban.
Huddle Up: Bradford was limited during workouts but should be a full participant when training camp starts. He has played well in the past but would not be more than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback. Rosen has a chance to start at some point in 2018 but would only be a keeper league option.
David Johnson - RBPosted 6/12/18 8:28am ET
Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson is holding out during the team's mandatory minicamp this week, according to sources. The two sides have been in discussions on a new contract, and they are hopeful it can get done.
Huddle Up: Johnson is an elite RB1 option if the dispute doesn't linger into the regular season.
Josh Rosen - QBPosted 6/10/18 7:18pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen needs to 'take what the defense gives us' in the red zone, according to head coach Steve Wilks.
Huddle Up: There is going to be a learning curve for any rookie, so it's not surprising to hear Rosen needs to sharpen his decision making. If he can beat out Sam Bradford in camp, he could be a QB2 option as soon as this year.
David Johnson - RBPosted 6/9/18 5:14am ET
Updating previous reports, Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson did not participate in organized team activities Thursday, June 7, but he was not injured, according to multiple sources. The reason for Johnson being sidelined was not disclosed and he did not address reporters after practice.
Huddle Up: Johnson will be a major component of Arizona's running and passing game in 2018 and should be viewed as a No. 1 running back in all fantasy formats.
David Johnson - RBPosted 6/8/18 6:16am ET
Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (undisclosed) missed practice time this week with an undisclosed injury. 'It's the offseason, and I'm not going to really indulge in injuries or things like that,' head coach Steve Wilks said.
Huddle Up: There wasn't any tip of the hand as he watched practice, which means it's likely not serious. Johnson is a high-end RB1 candidate in fantasy.
David Johnson - RBPosted 6/8/18 1:06pm ET
Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson's (undisclosed) undisclosed injury is not consider serious.
Huddle Up: Johnson may not return to the field until training camp but should be recovered by the injury by that time. He will see a lot of work in the running and passing game in 2018 and should be one of the first running backs selected in drafts.
David Johnson - RBPosted 6/8/18 4:29pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson has a good chance to receive a contract extension before the start of the regular season, in the opinion of NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.
Huddle Up: Johnson is entering the final year of his contract, so owners should keep an eye on the situation over the next few months. He is a big part of Arizona's offense and should be a No. 1 fantasy running back in all leagues.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 6/5/18 2:28pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Sam Bradford's (knee) practice repetitions are expected to increase in minicamp next week. He is on schedule in his rehabilitation, according to head coach Steve Wilks, and Bradford likes how he feels physically and mentally.
Huddle Up: It appears that Bradford is on track to start the season as long as he doesn't run into any hindrances in his recovery. One setback or a trend of bad play could catapult Josh Rosen into the starting spot. Still, Bradford is a viable QB2 in what is seemingly an underrated offense.
Josh Rosen - QBPosted 5/31/18 6:34pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen has 'impressed his coaches' with his ability to digest new information, according to Albert Breer of MMQB.
Huddle Up: Rosen could end up giving Sam Bradford a run for his money for the starting job during training camp. Both players would be QB2 candidates as the starter, but Bradford would offer a safer floor.
Christian Kirk - WRPosted 5/24/18 12:53pm ET
Arizona Cardinals second-round draft choice WR Christian Kirk signed a four-year contract with the Cardinals Thursday, May 24. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Kirk has a chance to be the No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for the Cardinals this upcoming season and should receive a solid amount of targets. He can be a late-round pick in deeper leagues and serve as a No. 4 or No. 5 fantasy receiver.
Josh Rosen - QBPosted 5/23/18 6:52pm ET
Arizona Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks said he has not ruled out QB Josh Rosen being the starting quarterback this upcoming season.
Huddle Up: Sam Bradford is considered the Cardinals' starting quarterback at this point, but Rosen could outperform Bradford during training camp. Owners should monitor the situation during camp because Rosen could be a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues if he wins the job.
David Johnson - RBPosted 5/17/18 7:54am ET
Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) said his wrist feels great, and he's aiming for 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards.
Huddle Up: The team will be deploying a fullback this year, which will give him an added layer of protection. They'll have to prove that they can move the ball downfield to keep defenses honest, though. Sam Bradford throws a ton of short passes, and DJ should be an RB1 as long as he's healthy.
Christian Kirk - WRPosted 5/14/18 4:14pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk was arrested in February and charged with criminal damage for allegedly throwing rocks at cars while intoxicated. The case is pending and a Cardinals spokesman said the team is aware of the incident and spoke with Kirk at length about it. 'Our understanding is that the process will be resolved in the near future, but while it remains an active legal matter, we won't comment further.
Huddle Up: A severe punishment is unlikely for Kirk. Arizona knew Kirk had been arrested when they drafted him, so they obviously weren't scared off enough to not draft him. Kirk can be one of the more impactful rookies in this year's class, but he's not deserving of being drafted as better than a WR4 in PPR leagues.
Josh Rosen - QBPosted 5/11/18 6:54pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen settled down after showing some early nerves during the first day of rookie minicamp Friday, May 11, according to head coach Steve Wilks, and Wilks said Rosen is already showing an understanding of the playbook. 'The guy is extremely smart,' Wilks said.
Huddle Up: With the fragile Sam Bradford ahead of him on the depth chart, Rosen could have a chance to start as soon as this season. He doesn't need to be selected in redraft leagues at this point, but he should be owned in dynasty formats.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 5/11/18 7:25pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Sam Bradford is the starting quarterback, head coach Steve Wilks said Friday, May 11, but Wilks added that he wouldn't hold back QB Josh Rosen.
Huddle Up: Wilks simply reiterated what he said when the Cardinals drafted Rosen. Bradford will likely open the year as the starter, and he can be a solid QB2 as long as he is healthy and running the show. Rosen's value is limited to dynasty formats for now.
Josh Rosen - QBPosted 5/10/18 6:23pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen signed a four-year deal worth $17.84 million with an $11 million signing bonus Thursday, May 10.
Huddle Up: Rosen will likely be the backup to open the year, but with Sam Braford's injury history, it wouldn't be a shock to see Rosen make some starts before the end of the year. For now, Rosen's value is limited to keep formats.
Ricky Seals-Jones - TEPosted 5/3/18 6:19pm ET
Arizona Cardinals TE Ricky Seals-Jones said he likes the new system offensive coordinator Mike McCoy has installed, and Mike Jurecki of Fox Sports Radio 910 expects Seals-Jones to have an expanded role in 2018.
Huddle Up: A converted wide receiver, Seals-Jones flashed some upside in the second half of last season. He's worth a flier as a TE2.
Chase Edmonds - RBPosted 4/28/18 10:43am ET
The Arizona Cardinals selected Fordham RB Chase Edmonds with the 134th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Saturday, April 28.
Huddle Up: Edmonds likely will not receive a lot of touches as long as David Johnson is healthy. He likely will not have much fantasy value as a rookie.
Josh Rosen - QBPosted 4/26/18 6:14pm ET
The Arizona Cardinals selected UCLA QB Josh Rosen with the 10th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Thursday, April 26.
Huddle Up: The Cardinals signed Sam Bradford during free agency but with his injury history, Rosen may see some playing time in 2018. He probably can be avoided in most standard leagues but should be a popular pick in keeper leagues.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 4/26/18 10:43pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Sam Bradford remains the team's projected Week 1 starter ahead of first-round pick QB Josh Rosen, according to head coach Steve Wilks, though he indicated that could change.
Huddle Up: Whoever lines up in Week 1, Bradford is most assuredly a bridge QB now, effectively keeping the spot warm for Rosen. How long that will be the arrangement is unclear, but Rosen's selection drains any fantasy value Bradford might've had.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 4/19/18 1:21pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Sam Bradford (knee) is not having any problems with his knee and has been limited during offseason workouts because there is no reason to rush things in April, according to head coach Steve Wilks.
Huddle Up: Bradford probably will wait until training camp before he is a full participant in practices. He has had some success during his career but has dealt with many injuries since entering the NFL. He probably can be considered a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 4/11/18 3:30pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson said he believes the Cardinals can have the top offense in the NFL in 2018 if QB Sam Bradford can stay healthy.
Huddle Up: Johnson should be ready for the start of the 2018 season and will be a big part of the running and passing game. He likely will be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues. Bradford has struggled with injuries during his entire career and should only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.
David Johnson - RBPosted 4/2/18 11:35pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) has officially been medically cleared and will not be limited when the club begins their offseason program.
Huddle Up: Johnson missed all but one game a year ago but it looks like he'll be ready to roll at full health going into the new campaign. Considering his tremendous second season when he totaled 20 touchdowns, rushed for 1,239 yards on 293 carries and accumulated 879 more yards through the air on 80 catches, Johnson still merits a very early pick in fantasy drafts.
David Johnson - RBPosted 3/27/18 5:15am ET
Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) is expected to be cleared in time for organized team activities next month, according to head coach Steve Wilks.
Huddle Up: Johnson will be returning to a different situation with a new head coach and Sam Bradford, who is always hurt, under center. The latter could be good for Johnson because Bradford does a lot of dink-and-dunk passing, which could bring DJ back to a high-end RB1 quickly in PPR formats.
Drew Stanton - QBPosted 3/25/18 5:20pm ET
Free-agent QB Drew Stanton (Cardinals) signed a two-year contract with the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, March 25. No financial details were disclosed.
Huddle Up: Stanton has little fantasy value unless Tyrod Taylor proves ineffective or is injured, but he will bring a veteran clubhouse presence to a team that was lost in 2017.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 3/16/18 7:05pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Sam Bradford (knee) said his knee is feeling strong despite all the injuries during his career. 'I've been through a lot with it, but all I can tell you is how I feel right now and really where it's gone since I had the procedure in November,' Bradford said. 'It's done nothing but get better and I feel good at the moment.'
Huddle Up: Bradford will have some weapons to work with in Arizona, but his health is a major concern. Grab him as a QB2 and hope he can last the season.
Jaron Brown - WRPosted 3/16/18 8:28pm ET
Free-agent WR Jaron Brown (Cardinals) has agreed to terms with the Seattle Seahawks Friday, March 16, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Seattle lost Jimmy Graham and Paul Richardson in free agency, but even with Seattle turning the offense over to Russell Wilson, Brown figures to be a bench option for fantasy owners.
Adrian Peterson - RBPosted 3/13/18 2:11pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson was officially released Tuesday, March 13.
Huddle Up: Peterson gave the Cardinals some quality games, but he'll turn 33 years old next week and is comfortably over the hill in running back years. He may yet play a complementary role somewhere else, but he is merely a faint blip on the fantasy radar at this point in his storied career.
John Brown - WRPosted 3/13/18 2:26pm ET
Free-agent WR John Brown (Cardinals) is in serious negotiations with the Baltimore Ravens, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Mike Wallace and Michael Campanaro are both impending free agents, so the Ravens could be due for more depth at the wide receiver position. Brown's deep-threat ability coupled with Joe Flacco's arm strength is an intriguing proposition, but Brown's healthy history makes him a wary fantasy prospect.
