Another win in the books for the Arizona Cardinals as they prepare for their toughest test of the season, the New Orleans Saints.

The offense was heavy in the run game on Sunday, how did that play out in the snap counts?

Let’s take a look.

Quarterback

Kyler Murray - 65 (100%)

Running Backs

Chase Edmonds - 61 (95%)|
David Johnson - 3 (5%)

Clearly they want to lessen the burden on Chase while not having to force DJ back too soon.

Wide Receivers

Trent Sherfield - 53 (82%)
Damiere Byrd - 52 (80%)
Larry Fitzgerald - 48 (74%)
Pharoah Cooper - 23 (35%)
Andy Isabella - 10 (15%)
KeeSean Johnson - 5 (5%)

Last week it was Johnson at the top, this week he barely plays. Meanwhile Sherfield moves up to WR1 and Byrd to WR2 in pure snap count. This is a fascinating week-to-week case study but also shows the need for a true top shelf wide receiver to pair with Christian Kirk and David Johnson.

Tight Ends

Maxx Williams - 32 (49%)
Charles Clay - 30 (46%)
Darrell Daniels - 8 (12%)

Offensive Line

D.J. Humphries - 65 (100%)
Justin Pugh - 65 (100%)
A.Q. Shipley - 65 (100%)
J.R. Sweezy - 65 (100%)
Justin Murray - 65 (100%)

Another week of truly wonderful case studies when it comes to Kliff Kingsbury and his player usage at the skill positions.

I am guessing with the lack of passing game, players like KeeSean and Pahroah would be needed less. While Fitz remains steady at his about 75% usage rate per game.
