Cardinals | David Johnson is special

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 10:52:04 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson has averaged 131.7 yards from scrimmage per game since he entered the starting lineup in Week 13 last year, which was the most in the NFL. Johnson also had the fastest speed by a running back as a ball carrier in 2015, per Next Gen Stats.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has all the tools to be a legitimate RB1 for fantasy owners, and he resides in one of the most potent offenses in the NFL if Carson Palmer can stay healthy for another season. Expect Johnson to come off the board in early rounds of fantasy drafts with do-it-all running backs a rarity these days.

Cardinals | John Brown under the radar

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 15:09:28 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown finished the 2015 season with 1,003 receiving yards and seven touchdowns in 15 games.

Fantasy Tip: Brown ranked 22nd in standard scoring formats among wide receivers last year, but he's currently the 32nd receiver off draft boards. Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd will get their share of targets, but Brown deserves more attention heading into 2016 in one of the most prolific offenses in the NFL.

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 13:18:29 -0700

Arizona Cardinals TE Darren Fells has lost about 20 pounds and has had the best offseason of anyone on the team, according to QB Carson Palmer.

Cardinals | Cards could use two RBs at a time

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 19:11:17 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson is expected to get a lion's share of the work, but RBs Chris Johnson and Andre Ellington each have skillsets which could help the offense. In fact, head coach Bruce Arians hinted Tuesday, June 7, that two backs could be on the field at the same time. "When I first came here, that's something B.A. told me he wanted to do," Chris Johnson said. "It started off with me getting here late (in training camp), then Andre getting hurt early and me getting hurt. It was hard to get two of us on the field at one time, but that's something we've really been working hard on."

Fantasy Tip: The Cardinals have three talented backs, but David Johnson is the one you'll want to pick first on draft day, with CJ2K as a pick for depth and Andre Ellington as a reserve in PPR formats.
