Some very, very early fantasy football rankings.
Some fantasy advice for the biggest game on Sunday.
The Arizona Cardinals weren’t the best source of fantasy football production in week 15. Truth be told, they haven’t been a reliable venue for fantasy owners ever since Carson Palmer (knee) went down. Add in Drew Stanton’s own knee injury, and it’s gotten even worse.
The Arizona Cardinals have yet another injury under center. As if Carson Palmer succumbing to a torn ACL didn’t put their offense in a blender enough, Drew Stanton exited last night’s Thursday Night Football game with a knee injury, as well.
There was a time that the Arizona Cardinals were a defense to be feared. Even with injuries and suspensions derailing them, Arizona pulled together as a unit and remained one of the best defenses in the league. Slowly, but surely, it seems that defense might be in danger of eroding before our very eyes.
The Arizona Cardinals have not been good on offense lately. That’s a grand understatement, as they truly have been horrendous ever since Carson Palmer went down.
The Arizona Cardinals took a nose dive on offense in week 12, as they managed just three points on the road against what currently looks like a better Seattle Seahawks team. Fantasy football owners couldn’t have expected fireworks from a Drew Stanton-led offense, though, and will have much more hope for Arizona’s fantasy options when they head to Atlanta to take on the Falcons in week 13.
Things probably went about as well as expected for the Arizona Cardinals in week 12. Going up against the Seattle Seahawks, few experts pegged many of their fantasy weapons as suitable options. Some fantasy owners probably hoped for a slightly better showing out of Michael Floyd (zero catches on two targets) and Andre Ellington (63 total yards), but they knew what they were getting into.
If you’re rolling with Arizona Cardinals wide receivers in fantasy football these days, you literally don’t know what to do on a weekly basis. That was probably the case even when Carson Palmer was healthy, but now that Drew Stanton is running the show, the weekly guessing game has been made near impossible.
The Arizona Cardinals were living the dream and fantasy football owners were trying quietly not to jinx it. Whether we need to blame fantasy football league managers or not, something went awry and now Carson Palmer (knee) is out for the remainder of the 2014 NFL season.
The Arizona Cardinals have been one of the bigger surprises of the 2014 NFL season, as they currently sit atop the would-be impossible NFC West with an astounding 7-1 mark. They haven’t been too shabby in the fantasy football realm, either, as they’ve produced weekly studs at quarterback, running back and wide receiver.
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd was supposed to bust out in 2014. With Larry Fitzgerald supposedly in his decline stage of his career and Floyd stepping up his game in 2013, it was a natural progression for Floyd to take the next step and settle in as Arizona’s top receiving option in the passing game.
The Arizona Cardinals finally looked completely like themselves in week six, as quarterback Carson Palmer made his return from a shoulder injury. Palmer’s injury had kept him out since a solid showing in Arizona’s week one game, yet he returned in week six and performed as if he had never left.
