Cardinals | Patrick Peterson will not be used on offense

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 01:00:43 -0700

Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson will be used strictly on defense this season and will not see time in any offensive situations. The Cardinals have excess capacity at wide receiver this year. Coach Bruce Arians plans on relieving Peterson of his punt return duties.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson's fantasy value will take a hit without the special teams presence, because he has returned punts before this season. However, Peterson claims focusing on his CB duties will make him a better defender, and individual defensive player leagues could see an added boost from Peterson.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer progressing

Sat, 26 Jul 2014 11:16:16 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer has improved his reads and dealing with blitzes, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: No matter how much Palmer improves, he's still not a starting fantasy quarterback. He's best used as a backup or streaming option.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington ready for big role

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 22:56:59 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington is ready to be the bell cow in the offense, according to head coach Bruce Arians. The big thing for Ellington will be his development as a pass catcher.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington has the chance to be a solid RB2 in most fantasy leagues, and he will be particularly attractive in leagues which reward points per reception (PPR).

Cardinals | Deone Bucannon to play nickel linebacker?

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 23:57:10 -0700

Arizona Cardinals first-round rookie SS Deone Bucannon could replace LB Larry Foote in nickel packages to take advantage of Bucannon's athleticism in pass coverage. Head coach Bruce Arians noted the defense will be molded to fit the players, rather than trying to make the players fit a specific system.

Cardinals | Bruce Arians talks up his defense

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 23:54:46 -0700

Arizona Cardinals LBs Kevin Minter and Larry Foote are expected to start next to each other at each inside linebacker spot in Arizona's 3-4 defense, replacing last year's starters, LBs Daryl Washington (suspended) and Karlos Dansby (Browns). Minter played one snap on defense as a rookie in 2013, but is expected to be an upgrade against the run from last year's interior duo. Foote, 34, enters his 13th year in the NFL, giving head coach Bruce Arians a contrasting pair inside. "You are going to miss Daryl's (Washington) speed, because he's going to correct his mistake with speed. Larry (Foote) is not going to make that mistake. Whether or not he can get there fast enough, that's (left) to be seen."

Cardinals | Justin Bethel impressing HC

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 23:53:18 -0700

Arizona Cardinals CB Justin Bethel had the best spring of anybody, according to head coach Bruce Arians. Bethel was a Pro Bowl special teams player in 2013. He has the athletic ability to be the best cornerback on roster, per Arians. When asked if Bethel could start at cornerback, Arians said, "Over Patrick (Peterson) and Cro (Antonio Cromartie). They gave up more big plays in the spring than he did, and got his hands on more balls than anybody did. That's a nice problem to have."

Cardinals | Deone Bucannon excited to compete

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 19:16:22 -0700

Arizona Cardinals S Deone Bucannon was not dropped into the starting lineup during offseason workouts, as the team has faith in FS Tony Jefferson and FS Rashad Johnson. He is excited to be back at training camp working to show the team what he can do on the field rather than just working out. "It's not really nervousness, it's more anxious," Bucannon said Wednesday, July 23. "You want to show everybody you can play and be a part of this team."

Fantasy Tip: Bucannon might not be at the top of the depth chart right now, but he is still expected to vault into a starting role by the time the regular season begins. For those in fantasy leagues which use individual defensive players (IDPs), take a wait-and-see approach to the rookie. If he starts, he could obviously rack up plenty of statistics.
