2014 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Arizona Cardinals
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Cardinals had a very good season last year (10-6) but still managed to miss the playoffs, mainly because the division they play is so good. Arizona is talented enough to challenge for a playoff spot once again but might have a hard time getting in because the Seahawks and 49ers are ahead of them right now in their division. The Cardinals have an underrated defense and the offense is much better with Bruce Arians at the helm. Arians did a good job of turning things around last season.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Running back Andre Ellington will be the starter for the Cardinals this season and get a lot of touches in that role. He did well with his chances last season, showing a lot of total yardage potential because of his ability to catch the ball and make a lot of plays in the open field. Ellington is our top breakout candidate for the coming season. He can get 1,500 or so total yards and near double-digit scores. The Cardinals have a good offense and he'll be the back leading the way.
FANTASY DUD
Quarterback Carson Palmer was a little up and down his first season with the Cardinals, but did a good job of turning things around after a slow start to the season. Palmer is another year older, though, and doesn't have the arm strength as earlier in his career. He'll turn the ball over more than your normal starting quarterback and his touchdown totals won't be off the charts. Don't overvalue him come draft day. He is a fantasy backup worth a few spot starts. His overall numbers won't be great for fantasy teams.
