2019 RTSports Outlook

Rosen had a shaky rookie season. He started much of the year but didn't show a whole lot. He completed just 55 percent of his passes and had 14 interceptions to 11 touchdowns in 14 games. He had fewer than 200-passing yards 10 of 14 games. He showed he has a long ways to go to be a top NFL starter. Rosen was surrounded by a lack of talent and some unimaginative play calling, though, so he can get going in the right situation. Rosen was traded to the Dolphins in the offseason and will compete with Ryan Fitzpatrick for the starting job. Rosen has great mechanics and looks the part of a top NFL signal caller. He is smart and picks up offenses well. He lacks a little ideal arm strength, though, and will force throws a times, trying to make the big play too often.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Rosen can improve on last year. He has the ability to get going. It isn't sure if he will open as the starter, though, and could learn behind the veteran signal caller for a season. But if he starts, he has some spot start potential for fantasy teams. He is capable of the big game in the right matchup.

RotoBaller's Outlook

After only one season in Arizona, Josh Rosen finds himself starting over. This season, with new coach Kliff Kingsbury in Arizona comes new quarterback Kyler Murray. Rosen was traded not long after Murray was selected and now finds himself in Miami. It is tough to think going to a rebuilding Dolphins team is a step up for anyone. For Rosen though, this is the case.Even after trading up to get him in the 2018 draft, the Cardinals did nothing to help him along in his rookie year. They forced him in behind a terrible offensive line after only two weeks. They saddled him with Mike McCoy as offensive coordinator. And head coach Steve Wilks ran a league-low 65 plays per game. If Rosen were more athletic, maybe this would have been OK, but Rosen is a pure pocket passer, not a runner.He will be going to a team in rebuild mode and is still only 22 years old, meaning he could be a player they build around. Players like Kenny Stills, Devante Parker, Mike Gesicki and Kenyan Drake, while not stars, are solid enough to help him progress in his career. Ryan Fitzpatrickis also there to mentor him for at least a season and provide competition.If he is able to beat out Fitzpatrick for the starting job in Miami, he could be a somewhat usable fantasy quarterback. This means a solid backup or a second QB in two-quarterback leagues. In redraft he is more of a streamer in a week with a good matchup. There are 20 or so quarterbacks who you could make a case for to draft in your fantasy league. If Ryan Fitzpatrick wins the Dolphins, he would be one of them. If Rosen wins the job though, he is still likely not someone who should be drafted. In dynasty leagues, if you can get him for cheap, he may be a good stash. If he pans out, you have the starter for an NFL team going forward. If not? He goes somewhere else and may find his way. The key is dont give up on him for the future.

Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has been better than Josh Rosen so far in offseason workouts. Fitzpatrick continues to take the first snaps with the first-team offense in team drills. Fitz was far from perfect in practice on Tuesday, but he didn't make any foolish throws that were intercepted, which couldn't be said for Rosen. Rosen has thrown a red-zone interception in three of four practices open to the media. The good news is Rosen appears to have somewhat improved his accuracy on throws to the sidelines. Training camp will be the final battle, one that Rosen could easily win and then start in Week 1. Neither of the options under center will be big fantasy guys, but Rosen presents more long-term upside.

Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has been better than quarterback Josh Rosen at organized team activities this week, according to a player that didn't want to speak publicly. However, Rosen has played well and Fitzpatrick threw two interceptions at practice on Tuesday. Rosen is doing his best work in the middle of the field and had good red-zone numbers with Arizona in his rookie season, but he also has remained inconsistent in practices. Miami has an open competition at QB this summer, but Rosen should win the job and start in Week 1. A change of scenery should be good news for him, but he'll be nothing more than a low-end QB2 that needs to prove himself.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has been 'the best of the quarterbacks' in organized team activities so far, according to an unidentified player who spoke to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald recently. However, Josh Rosen has also reportedly 'played well.'

May 9 12:23pm ET

Miami Dolphins QB Josh Rosen has a believer in Los Angeles assistant offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch, his offensive coordinator and interim head coach at UCLA. 'Knowing Josh, from working with him on a daily basis, I believe he will react and respond as he does in everything,' Fisch said in an interview published Thursday, May 9. 'He's very self-aware. He recognizes his skill set. He recognizes his ability in comparison to others. And I think in his mind he'll just go out there and show the Miami Dolphins they made the right decision. And do everything he can to perform at the highest level, recognizing he has all the skills in the world. And I don't think he'll be set back. I don't think he'll feel that he needs to prove someone wrong as much as he would like to prove someone right.'

Fantasy Spin: Rosen will battle veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick for the starting gig, but regardless of who emerges as the starter, they'll be a mid-level QB2 in fantasy at the very best.

May 1 4:00pm ET

Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores said that quarterback Josh Rosen, who was acquired from the Cardinals last Friday, will have to earn the job as the starting signal-caller in 2019. The 10th pick in the 2018 draft will be battling with journeyman Ryan Fitzpatrick, but we expect Rosen to win the competition and serve as the starter in Week 1. While he won't have many more weapons on offense than he did in Arizona in his failed rookie year, Rosen has upside because he's young. However, he'll be a mediocre QB2 with upside if he's starting in Miami.

From RotoBaller

Apr 29 9:03pm ET

Miami Dolphins QB Josh Rosen said he believes he can be a franchise quarterback for the Dolphins.

Fantasy Spin: Rosen is expected to compete with Ryan Fitzpatrick for the starting job during training camp. Fantasy players could consider the winner of the job to be a low-end No. 2 fantasy quarterback, and neither should be a starting option.

Apr 26 10:00pm ET

The Miami Dolphins acquired quarterback Josh Rosen and a fifth-round pick from the Arizona Cardinals on Friday in exchange for the No. 62 pick in the draft. The trade comes one day after Arizona took Kyler Murray first overall in the first round. Rosen, the No. 10 overall pick in 2018, threw for 2,278 yards with 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in 13 starts in his rookie year. Miami signed journeyman quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick in free agency, but there's little doubt Rosen will start for them in 2019. The change of scenery should be good news for Rosen as he plays with a chip on his shoulder, but he won't be much more than a QB2 with upside in redraft leagues this year.

Apr 26 9:33pm ET

Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen was acquired by the Miami Dolphins in exchange for the 62nd overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. The Dolphins also acquired a 2020 fifth-round draft choice in the trade.

Fantasy Spin: Rosen likely will compete with Ryan Fitzpatrick for the starting job during training camp but should have a decent chance to win the job. He will have some decent receivers to work with but should only be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Apr 26 9:33pm ET

Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen was traded to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for the 62nd overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. The Dolphins also acquired a 2020 fifth-round draft choice in the trade.

Fantasy Spin: Kyler Murray will be the starting quarterback from day one and will have success in Kliff Kingsbury offense. He can be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in standard leagues but will be a popular pick in keeper leagues.

Apr 26 2:30pm ET

The Miami Dolphins are close to acquiring quarterback Josh Rosen from the Miami Dolphins on Friday, and a deal might be tentatively done, according to multiple sources. The Cardinals would receive the No. 48 pick from Miami. Rosen wasn't expected to stick around after Arizona made Kyler Murray the No. 1 overall pick in the first round on Thursday. It's a cheap and decent move for the Dolphins, as veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick was tops on their depth chart under center. Rosen was awful in his rookie year in the desert behind a terrible offensive line. It's unclear if he'll start right away in Miami, but he should be considered the favorite over Fitzmagic. A change of scenery should help the 2018 first-round pick, but he won't have a ton of aerial weapons around him and will be, at best, a weak QB2 selection.

Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen is reportedly close to being traded to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for the No. 48 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Spin: There's no question Arizona needs to move on from Rosen and Miami presents him with perhaps the best opportunity to start right away. The Dolphins signed Ryan Fitzpatrick as a stopgap in the offseason, but he would appear to be a one-year answer at best. If Rosen is shipped to Miami, it seems reasonable he and Fitzpatrick would be allowed to compete for the starting job.

Apr 26 1:53pm ET

Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen apparently has unfollowed the team on Instagram and Twitter following the Cardinals' selection of QB Kyler Murray with the No. 1-overall pick.

Fantasy Spin: Despite the Cardinals saying they plan to keep Rosen for now, their one-year relationship appears headed for a divorce sooner rather than later, but Rosen's chances to be traded to a team where he'll start next season has dwindled considerably.

Apr 26 12:30pm ET

The Miami Dolphins are a team to watch with quarterback Josh Rosen after the Arizona Cardinals selected quarterback Kyler Murray first overall on Thursday night. A trade of Rosen isn't imminent, but the Dolphins and Cardinals have been talking, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero. The Dolphins have been doing work on Rosen for weeks and are one of the few destinations that would make sense for him. However, the Cardinals won't just give Rosen away and would be fine hanging onto him if they don't receive an acceptable offer. On the flip side, the Cardinals may not get good value for Rosen if he demands a trade. Miami might be Rosen's best chance of seeing decent playing time in 2019, but even there he wouldn't have much fantasy appeal.

The Arizona Cardinals are prepared to keep quarterback Josh Rosen if they don't receive a suitable trade offer for him. Rosen is firmly on the trading block after the team selected QB Kyler Murray with the first overall pick in the first round on Thursday night. The Giants, Dolphins and Chargers have discussed Rosen with the Cardinals, but he profiles as a backup, at best, for all three teams. If a trade happens, it'll probably come on Friday. However, no matter how it shakes out, it doesn't look like Rosen will be a starter for any team in 2019. The Cardinals traded up into the top 10 to take Rosen in last year's draft, but that was with Arizona's previous coaching regime.

Apr 25 8:30pm ET

The Arizona Cardinals selected Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray with the No. 1 overall pick of the 2019 NFL draft. This was the expected move all along, and the Cardinals finally confirmed it on Thursday evening. Murray is the most athletic signal-caller in this year's draft, as he was also a first-round pick in baseball last June. The knock on him is he might be too small to succeed at the next level, especially with Arizona's offensive line being one of the worst in the NFL. With Murray now atop the depth chart, look for the Cardinals to trade Josh Rosen, their first-round pick in 2018, on Friday. Murray will be an excellent draft choice in keeper leagues, but he might struggle for consistency in redraft leagues, although head coach Kliff Kingsbury's Air Raid offense should fit him very well.

From RotoBaller

Apr 25 2:40pm ET

Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim reached out to Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams to let him know that he's still a possibility for the team at No. 1 overall, according to a source. It's widely believed that Arizona will go with Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray with the first overall pick, but the Cardinals brass is at least making us believe that they might go with someone else. If Arizona takes Murray, they're expected to trade last year's first-round pick, Josh Rosen, but it might not happen until Friday.

From RotoBaller

Apr 24 2:00pm ET

Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury continues to praise quarterback Josh Rosen with the draft starting on Thursday and with last year's first-round pick's future up in the air. Rosen reported for the team's three-day minicamp this week. "Ive said it all along, I couldnt be more impressed with his approach. Hes a great player. I mean, he was a top-10 pick for a reason. You see it out there how cerebral he is, how quickly hes picked up our system. I was really impressed with his execution today," Kingsbury said of Rosen. The UCLA product had a tough time in his rookie year without many weapons around him behind a bad offensive line, but he's still young and could develop into a decent NFL starter, but it might not be with Arizona. The Cardinals are expected to take Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray first overall on Thursday, which would likely prompt the Cardinals to trade Rosen. It's looking like Rosen won't be much of a redraft option in 2019 despite his potential.

From RotoBaller

Apr 24 2:33am ET

The Miami Dolphins have been actively researching Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen, according to MMQB's Peter King, and could look to make an offer if Arizona selects Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray with the top overall pick.

Apr 18 10:10pm ET

The New York Giants don't appear to be very interested in trading for Arizona Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen if the Cardinals select Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray with the No. 1 overall pick. The Giants are currently focused on players in this year's draft class, including a group of quarterbacks they could select with the No. 6 or No. 17 picks in the first round. However, it seems unlikely they'll take a QB at sixth overall. Rosen wasn't even the highest ranked QB on New York's draft board last year, and they are concerned with how his personality would fit in New York, according to a team source. The Giants also have no interest in trading either one of their first-round picks for Rosen, and they also aren't inclined to give up their second-round pick (37th overall). The Giants are looking for Eli Manning's successor under center despite countlessly backing Manning's abilities, but they don't feel pressured to take on Rosen if the price isn't to their liking. No matter what happens, it's unlikely that Rosen will have much redraft fantasy value in 2019.

Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen has been the subject of trade rumors with the team reportedly eyeing Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray with the No. 1-overall draft pick, broke his media silence recently during an interview with Sports Illustrated TV. 'I think when people talk about, like, you can't listen to criticism or don't ever read articles, you have to be aware of what's going on to a certain extent,' Rosen said in a short video clip of the segment posted on Twitter . 'So I definitely understand the situation. I mean it's annoying, but it is what it is. Football is a business, and I definitely respect the higher-ups and their decisions.'
