Cardinals | Carson Palmer receives praise from anonymous player

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 13:18:18 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer was complimented by an anonymous safety recently, according to a source, who said that Palmer's game and work ethic are respected by not just him, but the Cardinals' locker room. The unnamed player said Palmer is the kind of leader the team needs at quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Being a clubhouse leader and having a good work ethic are essential for a quarterback, but Palmer's time as a go-to fantasy quarterback is over. He's a nice quarterback-by-committee and/or backup option in standard leagues.

Cardinals | Rob Housler's blocking a concern

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 13:16:15 -0700

Arizona Cardinals TE Rob Housler's blocking ability could be a concern, given what head coach Bruce Arians expects from the tight end position. Housler is an excellent route runner and pass catcher, but Arians wants his tight ends to also be bruising blockers off the line.

Fantasy Tip: The Cardinals tight end corps is deep, and although Housler is the best pure fantasy option because of his pass-catching ability, he is a low-end TE2, at best. The potential of losing snaps makes him undraftable at this stage.

Cardinals | John Carlson impressing

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 13:14:48 -0700

Arizona Cardinals TE John Carlson has been the tight end who impressed the most during organized team activities and minicamp. Head coach Bruce Arians complimented Carlson's ability to pick up the system quickly, his speed and hands, and he considers Carlson an adequate blocker. Arians wants physical tight ends who are capable blockers. Carlson will compete for targets with TEs Rob Housler, Jake Ballard and Troy Niklas (hand).

Fantasy Tip: The Cardinals tight end corps has too many options to be able to rely on any of them as a weekly fantasy option, at least at this point.

Cardinals | Teammate impressed with Robert Hughes

Wed, 02 Jul 2014 20:26:19 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer said he was impressed with how FB Robert Hughes performed during offseason workouts, especially his pass catching skills. "I think once you put pads on, he's 240 pounds and built like a bulldog and I think he's going to run through people and run over people. But I've been very shocked for a guy with his build and his power, how fluid he is running routes and how well he does adjusting to balls and catching balls and in the pass game he's been really good," Palmer said.

Cardinals | Coach likes what he sees from Jonathan Dwyer

Wed, 02 Jul 2014 20:03:50 -0700

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said he has been impressed with how RB Jonathan Dwyer looked during offseason workouts. "He's in better shape and he's running routes and catching the ball better than I remember," Arians said. "I know he'll pound you and can really run the football. I know he can pass block. But he caught the ball extremely well. He made some catches in the red zone for us. That was a surprise."
