Cardinals | More playing time for J.J. Nelson?

Wed, 24 Feb 2016 17:47:51 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson averaged 27.2 yards on 11 catches as a rookie in 2015. Head coach Bruce Arians stated it is a goal of his to get Nelson on the field more often next season.

Fantasy Tip: Arians' offenses rarely use the tight end in the passing game, but not much else appears to be working in Nelson's favor in regards to making him relevant in fantasy. The Cardinals are stacked at receiver with Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd and John Brown, and have two very soft-handed running backs in David Johnson and Andre Ellington. Owners in standard leagues can ignore Nelson for now.

Cardinals | David Johnson to be among the best ever?

Wed, 24 Feb 2016 16:25:05 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson "has a chance to be one of the all-time best", according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: Arians has been known to engage in a bit of hyperbole from time to time, but Johnson did emerge as a total-yardage machine once Chris Johnson and Andre Ellington both succumbed to injury. While he has a long way to go to prove he could be "one of the all-time best", David Johnson will probably be a top 10-15 fantasy pick at worst this summer as one of the few clear-cut feature backs in the league.

Cardinals | Not expected to use franchise tag

Tue, 16 Feb 2016 09:56:05 -0800

The Arizona Cardinals are not expected to use the franchise tag because they don't have any free agents that are worth it, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Josh Weinfuss. General manager Steve Keim and head coach Bruce Arians have been good at filling voids in free agency and through the draft.

Cardinals | Arizona doesn't plan to rest players

Mon, 28 Dec 2015 15:40:22 -0800

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said he has no intention of resting his starters in Week 17 against the Seattle Seahawks. Arians said the Cardinals will approach it as if it were Week 1 of the season.

Fantasy Tip: The Cardinals could elect to remove some starters late in the game if the Carolina Panthers are comfortably ahead in their matchup at the same time, considering the Cardinals would have nothing to gain if Carolina wins in Week 17. Approach this like any other week, but consider the possibility that the Cardinals offense could struggle to perform at a high level against a tough Seattle defense.

Cardinals | Michael Floyd looking sharp

Fri, 11 Sep 2015 18:33:41 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd has "looked really good" catching passes in practice, according to head coach Bruce Arians. "He went one-on-ones and went a bunch of practice and looked really good," Arians said. "He dove for a ball and caught it, made me hold my breath. But he caught it."

Fantasy Tip: It still hasn't been decided whether or not Floyd ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) will suit up against the New Orleans Saints in Week 1, but if he does play, he should make a worthwhile starting option at FantasyScore against a New Orleans secondary that was terrible a year ago.

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 04:49:34 -0700

Arizona Cardinals LB Larry Foote, who joined the coaching staff following the 2014 season, may still play in 2015. Foote had knee surgery, and head coach Bruce Arians hopes Foote makes his decision before training camp.

Cardinals | Bruce Arians disses spread offense

Fri, 27 Feb 2015 11:40:16 -0800

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians is not a proponent of spread offenses in the NFL because they often set back the development of a young quarterback, such as San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick or Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III. "That ain't playing quarterback. There's no leadership involved there. There might be leadership on the bench, but when you get them and they have to use verbiage and they have to spit the verbiage out and change the snap count, they are light years behind," Arians said.
