Chase Edmonds - RBPosted 6/23/19 8:07pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds will have a 'really nice role in the offense' this season, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
Huddle Up: Kingsbury has also said he plans to use David Johnson as the feature back, so Edmonds isn't likely to have a big enough role to be more than a handcuff for fantasy owners in redraft leagues. That being said, he is an intriguing stash candidate in dynasty formats.
Ricky Seals-Jones - TEPosted 6/17/19 10:32pm ET
Arizona Cardinals TE Ricky Seals-Jones (neck) was able to take part in offseason workouts. Seals-Jones and the rest of the tight ends saw plenty of four-receiver sets during minicamp and offseason workouts. However, he wasn't concerned about a lack of targets heading into 2019. 'Regardless of what happens, I'm going to keep trying to trend up,' Seals-Jones said. 'I'm going to get better at what I do, so whatever the outcome is, I'll be happy as long as I know I did my best. We'll see what the numbers look like at the end of the year.'
Huddle Up: Seals-Jones heads up a full room of tight ends which also includes Charles Clay and Maxx Williams. Kliff Kingsbury doesn't appear keen on using a tight end much in his offense, but it's still a work in progress right now. However, even if Seals-Jones is optimistic or not worried, his fantasy outlook is rather murky at the moment.
David Johnson - RBPosted 6/17/19 10:56pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds expressed confidence Wednesday, June 17 that he will have a regular role in the offseason despite the fact RB David Johnson will be leaned upon heavily as the bellcow back. 'Me and (Dave) are definitely pushing for (two-back looks),' Edmonds said. 'It opens up his dynamic ability and mine as well. Whether it's two-back sets or Dave in the slot, me in the slot, it doesn't really matter.'
Huddle Up: Edmonds might be confident that he'll have a decent role, but head coach Kliff Kingsbury has made it clear he intends on riding Johnson hard this season. That's great for his fantasy value, but Edmonds might only see crumbs. His fantasy appeal is much, much less.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 6/17/19 10:47pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald has shown up to almost every voluntary workout so far during his 16th NFL offseason. 'I am hoping he enjoys the process and enjoys what the offense turns into and gives him a reason to stick around a few more years,' head coach Kliff Kingsbury said. 'But he practices and he plays like he's trying to make the team, and that's the biggest compliment I can give him. He doesn't need it, and you'd think he's starving out there. It's impressive to watch.'
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald is learning a new offense, and he is working with rookie Kyler Murray trying to develop a rapport. The veteran remains a freak of nature who refuses to allow Father Time to catch up to him. He had 69 grabs for 734 yards and six touchdowns in 2018, but the lower production was more due to a poor offense than anything on him. He remains a decent WR3/4 or flex fantasy option heading into 2019.
T.J. Logan - RBPosted 6/17/19 11:03pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB T.J. Logan said Wednesday, June 17 that his lack of impact last season was self-inflicted, and he has been on a mission over the past six months. 'At the end of the season, it clicked for me, like I needed to put more into it,' said Logan. 'This game, you're only going to get out what you put in.' He feels
Huddle Up: Logan has an uphill climb behind David Johnson and Chase Edmonds in the offseason, but he is a speedburner should might be just one injury away from a rather meaningful role.
Kyler Murray - QBPosted 6/16/19 11:03am ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray will enjoy immediate NFL success in the opinion of teammate David Johnson. 'He's going to be great,' Johnson said Wednesday, June 12 on Sirius XM Radio. 'It's going to be scary for D-linemen. I remember I was just talking to Chandler (Jones), he has to kind of hesitate when he chases [Murray] down. ... People are really underestimating his ability to throw. He can throw dimes and he can throw the ball down the field, he's been throwing it deep to Christian (Kirk), to those guys in the OTAs... these defenses are going to have to definitely practice against a scrambler like him.'
Huddle Up: Unlike many recent first-round QBs, Murray is his team's unquestioned starter and has tons of upside as a high-end fantasy QB2.
Christian Kirk - WRPosted 6/14/19 6:33pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk has shown a 'good feel' for the offense, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
Huddle Up: With his speed and explosiveness, Kirk could be one of the main beneficiaries of Kingsbury's offensive-minded approach and the addition of quarterback Kyler Murray. He's worth a look as a WR4, and he has the potential to emerge as a fantasy starter.
David Johnson - RBPosted 6/1/19 3:00pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson said he optimistic about the offense head coach Kliff Kingsbury is bringing to the team. He believes he can have a similar season in 2019 than he did in 2016 when he posted more than 2,000 total yards.
Huddle Up: The Cardinals will try to play fast on offense, so Johnson should receive plenty of touches during games. He should be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues because of his abilities in the running and passing game.
Kyler Murray - QBPosted 5/26/19 8:22am ET
The Arizona Cardinals could use the shotgun formation almost exclusively during the 2019 season, according to Bob McManaman of The Arizona Republic, which means that QB Kyler Murray would rarely be positioned under center.
Huddle Up: New head coach Kliff Kingsbury ran the shotgun at Texas Tech and Murray used it at Oklahoma, so there won't be a learning curve for adjusting to the offense. Murray will be the team's starting quarterback in Week 1 and should be viewed as a No. 2 option in standard fantasy leagues, with added value in keeper and dynasty formats.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 5/20/19 7:03pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson and WR Larry Fitzgerald were not present during practice Monday, May 20.
Huddle Up: Both Johnson and Fitzgerald could participate in practice later this offseason and should be on the field for mandatory minicamp. Johnson will be a No. 1 running back in fantasy leagues this upcoming season, while Fitzgerald could be a No. 3 receiver.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 5/18/19 6:36pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald could reach 100 catches because of all the 'quick-rhythm throws' in head coach Kliff Kingsbury's offense, in the opinion of Bucky Brooks of NFL.com.
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald is coming off a down year, but with Kyler Murray under center and a pass-happy offense being installed, he could see an uptick in his numbers. While 100 catches may be a little optimistic, Fitzgerald is Arizona's most dependable receiver. It wouldn't be a shock to see him finish as a solid WR3.
Kyler Murray - QBPosted 5/11/19 10:43am ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (feet) said he was dealing with sore feet after practice Friday, May 10, because he was not wearing the right pair of cleats.
Huddle Up: Murray will be the starting quarterback for the Cardinals in Week 1 and should be comfortable in Kliff Kingsbury's offense. He probably will struggle at times during his rookie season but can be a No. 2 quarterback in standard leagues. He will be a popular option in keeper leagues.
Hakeem Butler - WRPosted 5/10/19 5:35pm ET
Arizona Cardinals second-round draft choice WR Andy Isabella and fourth-round draft choice WR Hakeem Butler signed four-year contracts with the Cardinals Friday, May 10. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Isabella and Butler are expected to compete for playing time during training camp and could be the team's No. 3 and No. 4 receivers this season. Fantasy players should monitor both players progress during camp because they could be late-round picks in deeper leagues.
Josh Rosen - QBPosted 5/9/19 9:14am ET
Miami Dolphins QB Josh Rosen has a believer in Los Angeles assistant offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch, his offensive coordinator and interim head coach at UCLA. 'Knowing Josh, from working with him on a daily basis, I believe he will react and respond as he does in everything,' Fisch said in an interview published Thursday, May 9. 'He's very self-aware. He recognizes his skill set. He recognizes his ability in comparison to others. And I think in his mind he'll just go out there and show the Miami Dolphins they made the right decision. And do everything he can to perform at the highest level, recognizing he has all the skills in the world. And I don't think he'll be set back. I don't think he'll feel that he needs to prove someone wrong as much as he would like to prove someone right.'
Huddle Up: Rosen will battle veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick for the starting gig, but regardless of who emerges as the starter, they'll be a mid-level QB2 in fantasy at the very best.
Christian Kirk - WRPosted 5/3/19 8:29pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk could be used as 'a bubble screen guy where you get it in his hands' in the mold of Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen, according to one NFL executive.
Huddle Up: Kirk has flashed his explosiveness, albeit in sporadically, and finding more ways to put the ball in his hands is only going to increase his chances of producing big plays. Head coach Kliff Kingsbury's offense could be just what the doctor ordered to unleash Kirk's full potential, and he's a great target in the later rounds of drafts.
Kyler Murray - QBPosted 5/2/19 12:31pm ET
Arizona Cardinals first-round QB Kyler Murray will be the team's Week 1 starter against the Detroit Lions, according to general manager Steve Keim.
Huddle Up: This nugget is only newsworthy because head coach Kliff Kingsbury noted earlier in the day that Murray was not guaranteed anything and that the team was "very excited" about Brett Hundley. This year's top overall pick is primed to be a fantasy goldmine in 2019 in an offense that promises to open up the field, throw the ball a ton and let him use his athleticism. A top-10 finish among fantasy quarterbacks should not be ruled out.
Josh Rosen - QBPosted 4/29/19 5:50pm ET
Miami Dolphins QB Josh Rosen said he believes he can be a franchise quarterback for the Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Rosen is expected to compete with Ryan Fitzpatrick for the starting job during training camp. Fantasy players could consider the winner of the job to be a low-end No. 2 fantasy quarterback, and neither should be a starting option.
Hakeem Butler - WRPosted 4/27/19 9:10am ET
Iowa State WR Hakeem Butler was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals with the first pick in Round 4 (No. 103) of the 2019 NFL Draft on Saturday, April 27.
Huddle Up: He adds size (6-foot-5, 227 pounds) and a presence in the red zone. Butler is the second receiver drafted in the last two rounds by the Cards, and he'll compete for playing time on the outside. Fantasy owners can take a late-round chance on him in 2019 leagues.
Hakeem Butler - WRPosted 4/27/19 6:48pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Hakeem Butler fits the offense 'perfectly,' according to Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com. 'Butler will be the ideal complement to Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk,' Weinfuss said.
Huddle Up: Butler brings some size to the Arizona passing attack, so he could make an instant impact in the red zone. He shouldn't slip past the second round in rookie drafts, and he may be worth a late-round flier in redraft leagues.
Kyler Murray - QBPosted 4/26/19 9:20am ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray's deal doesn't include a no- baseball clause, but the Cardinals are satisfied that there is a general philosophical agreement on contract language protecting the team in the event Murray does decide to give baseball another shot.
Huddle Up: Just another chance and risk for the Cards, but expect Murray to stick with football for at least a couple of years and will start off in fantasy as an intriguing QB2 with nothing but upside.
Josh Rosen - QBPosted 4/26/19 10:38am ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen apparently has unfollowed the team on Instagram and Twitter following the Cardinals' selection of QB Kyler Murray with the No. 1-overall pick.
Huddle Up: Despite the Cardinals saying they plan to keep Rosen for now, their one-year relationship appears headed for a divorce sooner rather than later, but Rosen's chances to be traded to a team where he'll start next season has dwindled considerably.
Josh Rosen - QBPosted 4/26/19 11:06am ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen is reportedly close to being traded to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for the No. 48 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, according to multiple sources.
Huddle Up: There's no question Arizona needs to move on from Rosen and Miami presents him with perhaps the best opportunity to start right away. The Dolphins signed Ryan Fitzpatrick as a stopgap in the offseason, but he would appear to be a one-year answer at best. If Rosen is shipped to Miami, it seems reasonable he and Fitzpatrick would be allowed to compete for the starting job.
Josh Rosen - QBPosted 4/26/19 6:29pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen was traded to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for the 62nd overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. The Dolphins also acquired a 2020 fifth-round draft choice in the trade.
Huddle Up: Kyler Murray will be the starting quarterback from day one and will have success in Kliff Kingsbury offense. He can be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in standard leagues but will be a popular pick in keeper leagues.
Andy Isabella - WRPosted 4/26/19 6:20pm ET
Massachusetts WR Andy Isabella was selected by the Arizona Cardinals with the 62nd overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Isabella is a speedster who could claim the slot job for Arizona sooner rather than later. He's a must-add player in rookie drafts and could be worth a flier in redraft leagues as a rookie.
Josh Rosen - QBPosted 4/26/19 6:13pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen was acquired by the Miami Dolphins in exchange for the 62nd overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. The Dolphins also acquired a 2020 fifth-round draft choice in the trade.
Huddle Up: Rosen likely will compete with Ryan Fitzpatrick for the starting job during training camp but should have a decent chance to win the job. He will have some decent receivers to work with but should only be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.
Kyler Murray - QBPosted 4/25/19 5:23pm ET
Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray was selected by the Arizona Cardinals with the first overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Murray likely will take over the starting job and should be a good option in Kliff Kingsbury's offense. He likely will have some struggles this upcoming season but could be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
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.
