David Johnson - RBPosted 4/13/19 2:10pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson said he still wants to post at least 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards in the same season.
Huddle Up: Johnson will be working in a new offense next season but should continue to be a focal point for the Cardinals. He likely will be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues in 2019.
David Johnson - RBPosted 4/11/19 6:20pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson said he is excited to work out of the shotgun in head coach Kliff Kingsbury's offense. 'I think it really opens up more space for me and makes me able to read the defense a little bit more,' Johnson said.
Huddle Up: Johnson struggled with efficiency last year, but if Kingsbury opens up the offense and utilizes Johnson as a receiver more often, a return to RB1 production isn't out of the question. He should at least be able to provide volume-based RB2 numbers.
Josh Rosen - QBPosted 4/7/19 10:41am ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen is rumored to be on the trade block, and there's a 'solid chance' he winds up getting traded to the Washington Redskins, according to one Washington beat reporter.
Huddle Up: The Skins already have Case Keenum and Colt McCoy on board, but neither is the long-term answer so expect either a trade for Rosen or Washington to select a QB in the first round of this year's draft. Any of the options, though, would not move the needle much in regards to the fantasy values of the D.C. pass-catchers.
Josh Rosen - QBPosted 4/5/19 8:20am ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen is expected to report to offseason workouts Monday, April 8, despite trade speculation. The Cardinals have yet to show a willingness to trade him.
Huddle Up: If he winds up staying and starting next season, he's a meager QB2 option in traditional formats.
Josh Rosen - QBPosted 4/5/19 9:27am ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen has been the target of at least two trade offers, but the Cardinals are trying to 'save face' and get as a close to a first-round draft pick in return as possible, according to one AFC executive.
Huddle Up: The Rosen trade rumors are still flying with the Cards reportedly still eyeing QB Kyler Murray with the No. 1 overall pick. Rosen had a dud of a rookie debut with 2,278 passing yards, 11 TDs and 14 interceptions in 14 games last season, but he has chance to challenge for low-end QB2 fantasy status if he lands in a better starting situation.
Josh Rosen - QBPosted 3/29/19 10:50am ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen is the subject of new trade speculation involving the Cincinnati Bengals with one beat reporter saying the Bengals would be 'doing themselves a disservice if they don't at least pick up the phone and see what it might cost.'
Huddle Up: The Cincy offense has been inconsistent at best with Andy Dalton at the controls the last eight seasons, and with new head coach Zac Taylor taking over with no previous ties to the Red Rifle, a trade for Rosen might not be out of the question.
Josh Rosen - QBPosted 3/13/19 9:02pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen likely would be a trade target for the New York Giants if he becomes available, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Rosen's future with the Cardinals is uncertain at this point since the Cardinals have been linked to Kyler Murray. The Giants may consider using one of their first-round picks on a quarterback or could try to trade for Rosen. Owners in fantasy leagues probably should avoid Rosen even if he stays with the Cardinals.
Ricky Seals-Jones - TEPosted 3/8/19 2:38pm ET
Arizona Cardinals exclusive rights free-agent TE Ricky Seals-Jones received a tender offer Friday, March 8.
Huddle Up: Seals-Jones finished this season with 343 yards and one touchdown in 15 games. He probably will compete with Charles Clay for the starting tight end job next season but can be avoided in fantasy drafts.
Josh Rosen - QBPosted 3/7/19 12:09pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen could be traded to the Washington Redskins in exchange for a third-round draft pick, in the opinion of Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.
Huddle Up: Rosen would certainly fill a need for the Redskins as Alex Smith could miss the whole year. Still, Rosen is not a starting caliber fantasy quarterback yet. He struggled in his rookie year and must show us he can produce consistently before we trust him in starting lineups.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 3/6/19 10:00pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald didn't want to wrap up his career after a poor 2018 season. 'We had a really bad season last year and I just didn't want to go out on that level,' Fitzgerald said on a podcast via the team's official website. 'You've got to live the rest of your life knowing you went out on that level.'
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald showed he still has plenty left in the tank, posting 69 grabs for 734 yards and six touchdowns in his 15th NFL season. However, his yardage total did mark a career low. He is more of a WR4 or WR5 in most fantasy leagues heading into 2019.
Josh Rosen - QBPosted 3/5/19 9:09am ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen might only fetch a second-day draft pick in a trade if the Cardinals want to move the second-year quarterback and select QB Kyler Murray with the No. 1 overall pick. Rosen was selected 10th overall in last season's draft, and his relative lack of trade value shows that the rest of the league has concerns about Rosen that go beyond his rookie struggles behind a poor offensive line last season.
Huddle Up: Rosen averaged only 5.8 yards per attempt while tossing 11 TD passes and 14 interceptions as a rookie, and it's hard to envision him as anything more than a low-end QB2 wherever he ends up next season.
Josh Rosen - QBPosted 3/4/19 7:27am ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen, who is believed to be on the trading block, would likely be worth a third-round pick in a trade.
Huddle Up: The Cards are rumored to be enamored with Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray with the first pick, and Rosen was pretty shaky in his rookie season. He's probably only worth targeting in two-QB leagues or dynasty formats.
Josh Rosen - QBPosted 3/2/19 1:38pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen likely will receive trade interest from the Washington Redskins if he is made available, according to sources.
Huddle Up: The Redskins will be looking to add at least one quarterback this offseason because of Alex Smith's injury, and Rosen could be the team's long-term quarterback if he is acquired. He probably would not be more than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he joins Washington.
Josh Rosen - QBPosted 2/27/19 8:46am ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen is the starting quarterback, according to general manager Steve Keim.
Huddle Up: Rosen didn't show a lot in Year One to have much more value than an upside QB2 in non-dynasty leagues.
Christian Kirk - WRPosted 2/25/19 10:28pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk caught six of the seven catchable passes thrown in his direction at least 20 yards down the field for 227 yards and a touchdown as a rookie in 2018, according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: Kirk broke his foot in early December but was starting to emerge as a playmaker for the woeful Cardinals. The new regime should suit him well, however, as the Texas A&M product was one of the draft's best run-after-catch receivers a year ago, and head coach Kliff Kingsbury's offense should allow for plenty of those opportunities. Kirk is a player fantasy owners should keep in mind as a deep sleeper in 2019.
David Johnson - RBPosted 2/15/19 6:34pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson is going to remain a big part of the offense, according to offensive line coach Sean Kugler, and Kugler said people will be 'surprised' by how much the Cardinals run the ball in 2019.
Huddle Up: It's unlikely that the Cardinals will become a run-first team with Kliff Kingsbury now the coach, but Johnson's versatility allows him to contribute as a runner and a receiver. He should at least be a volume-based RB2.
Christian Kirk - WRPosted 2/14/19 11:22am ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (foot) expects to be fully healed from his broken foot by the end of February. Kirk suffered the injury in Week 12 last season. Doctors said his recovery process is going well. 'I'm doing all the things I can to make sure I'm the best me,' Kirk said.
Huddle Up: Kirk performed well overall as a rookie despite Arizona's disappointing year. He and Josh Rosen showed glimpses of a future dynamic duo. Even with Larry Fitzgerald returning, Kirk possesses WR3 upside as Arizona's No. 2 wide receiver.
Josh Rosen - QBPosted 2/12/19 12:30pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen 'is our guy,' in the words of new head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
Huddle Up: Kingsbury had made an earlier comment about taking Kyler Murray with the first overall pick if Murray were to commit to football. That comment wasn't taken with complete seriousness, but now Kingsbury is giving Rosen a vote of confidence. Nonetheless, Rosen remains in the backup fantasy quarterback conversation going into his sophomore campaign.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 1/24/19 5:23am ET
Updating previous reports, Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald's one-year deal is worth nearly $16 million. He'll have an $11 million base salary and received a $4.85 million signing bonus.
Huddle Up: Fitz took a step back in fantasy last season, albeit the quarterback issues had something to do with it. That may not change in 2019, and he's a PPR WR3 target with minimal upside.
Christian Kirk - WRPosted 1/24/19 6:16pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (foot) said he is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a foot injury.
Huddle Up: Kirk showed promise as a rookie before the injury, and he should enter 2019 as the No. 2 option in the passing game across from Larry Fitzgerald. His success will be somewhat tied to the development of quarterback Josh Rosen, but Kirk will have WR3 potential.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 1/23/19 6:37am ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald announced Wednesday, Jan. 23, that he'll return for the 2019 season.
Huddle Up: Fitz had a 69-734-6 season, which was well below the 100-catch, 1,000-yard seasons the three years previously. The rookie quarterback was part of the problem, but he doesn't have much more upside next season. He's still a PPR asset, but he'll be a mid-round option as a WR3.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 1/23/19 12:38pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald needs 23 receptions to reach 1,326 receptions and pass former NFL TE Tony Gonzalez for second place on the all-time receptions list. Former NFL WR Jerry Rice tops the list at 1,549 catches. For a loftier goal, Fitzgerald needs 13 touchdowns to reach 129 career receiving touchdowns and pass former NFL WR Marvin Harrison for fifth on the all-time receiving touchdowns list.
Huddle Up: After Fitz finishes his 2019 campaign, he'll go down as one of the greatest wide receivers in the history of the game. His 2018 season left something to be desired, but he has scored at least six touchdowns in each of the last four seasons. With a new offensive minded head coach and another offseason under Josh Rosen's belt, Fitz possesses PPR WR2 value.
Kliff Kingsbury - HCPosted 1/21/19 6:24pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (foot) said he is looking forward to playing in the offensive scheme that head coach Kliff Kingsbury will bring to the team. Kirk also said he will be fully healthy when offseason workouts begin.
Huddle Up: Kirk was limited to 12 games because of a foot injury but still caught 43 passes for 590 yards and three touchdowns. He should be the top option in the passing game for the Cardinals in 2019 and can be considered a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
David Johnson - RBPosted 1/17/19 6:22pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson could see fewer targets in the passing game in head coach Kliff Kingsbury's offense, according to Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com. Urban notes that while Kingsbury was coach at Texas Tech, no running back had more than 41 receptions in a single season.
Huddle Up: Johnson is by far the best weapon for an otherwise lackluster Arizona offense, and even in a down year, he managed 10 touchdowns, 50 receptions and nearly 1,400 yards from scrimmage. It seems unlikely that Kingsbury will elect to phase out his most dangerous player in any capacity, so volume-based, low-end RB1 production is possible for Johnson in 2019.
Kliff Kingsbury - HCPosted 1/12/19 9:34am ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald said he has not decided if he will play next season. Head coach Kliff Kingsbury said he would like Fitzgerald to return, but Kingsbury's hiring has not swayed Fitzgerald in either direction.
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald failed to post at least 1,000 yards for the first time in four seasons but still posted solid numbers in 2018. He likely would continue to be a main option in the passing game if he plays next season and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Kliff Kingsbury - OCPosted 1/8/19 12:06pm ET
Former USC offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury is finalizing a deal to become the next head coach of the Arizona Cardinals. Terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
Huddle Up: The offensive minded Kingsbury will be good for Josh Rosen, in particular, assuming Rosen remains the starter. David Johnson should also benefit after a disappointing 2018 campaign. There are hopeful times ahead in Arizona.
Josh Rosen - QBPosted 12/31/18 12:53am ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen finished 18-of-34 for 149 yards and a touchdown in Week 17 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: About the only good thing to come out of Rosen's rookie year is that he logged significant snaps. His season ends with 2,278 yards passing, 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions, although it should be noted Arizona clearly placed him into position to fail. Much work needs to be done between now and the start of next season - including upgrades at offensive coordinator and along the offensive line - before the Cardinals can make a call on his long-term outlook. He'll be a low-end fantasy QB2 at best in 2019.
Chad Williams - WRPosted 12/31/18 12:59am ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Chad Williams hauled in five of his 11 targets for 51 yards - all career highs - in Week 17 versus the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Shortly after the 2017 draft, it was reported some of the team's staffers thought Williams was going to be Larry Fitzgerald's long-term replacement. He wraps up his second season in the desert with career totals of 20 receptions, 202 yards and one touchdown. Williams will be lucky to see significant snaps behind Fitzgerald (if he doesn't retire), Christian Kirk and David Johnson next season - and that assumes he even makes the team.
David Johnson - RBPosted 12/30/18 11:17pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson rushed for 62 yards on 17 carries and hauled in three of his four targets for six yards in Week 17 against the Seattle Seahawks. Johnson was able to run in a two-point conversion.
Huddle Up: A player taken No. 1 overall in many fantasy drafts this summer, Johnson was unable to really ever get it going behind one of the worst offensive lines in the league, poor play-calling and defenses able to sell out to stop him. Arizona will likely clean house in the coaching ranks, but it's going to take that and then some for Johnson to be worth taking before the end of the first round in most fantasy drafts in 2019.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 12/30/18 11:44pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald caught four of his nine targets for 36 yards and a touchdown in Week 17 versus the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: There is a chance Fitzgerald was playing the final game of his distinguished career, although he still has plenty left to give physically. Whether or not he wants to return for another year of the Cardinals' rebuilding project is another story. Fitzgerald ends his 15th season with 69 catches, 734 yards and six touchdowns. If he calls it a career, he'll do so ranked inside the top three all-time in career receptions (1,303) and receiving yards (16,279) with an invite to the Hall of Fame coming five years down the road.
