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.
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.
