Who Will Have the Worst Record in 2018?

Only one-quarter into the season, there were a lot of surprises. Teams that we thought would win easily ended up in shootouts. Teams that we thought would lose put up big numbers. Looking at you Tampa Bay. So what are we to do? Predict the worst teams this year! Let’s look at some of the teams with the potential to be the worst team this year, based on their week 1-4 performances.

Will the Change at Quarterback Help David Johnson’s numbers?

The hometown Arizona Cardinals have officially made a change at quarterback. Rookie Josh Rosen will start at home against the Seattle Seahawks this Sunday in what appears to be a “the future is now” move. Sam Bradford has been shut down after an abysmal 2 3/4 game performance. It is speculated that the offense will certainly be less stagnant with Rosen in the lineup, but I would like to go deeper. Will a change at quarterback actually help David Johnson in fantasy football?

When Looking at the 2018 Cardinals, it is Hard Not to Look Back

The Cardinals season is all but over, but many fans feel that it is already over. The Bruce Arians era is in the review mirror in what seems like only had lasted a moment.

We saw plenty of good items being signed; custom helmets, posters, magazine covers. Even a few UNI Mini Helmets showed up to David’s surprise.

When is the Best Time to Draft a Kicker?

The kicker position in fantasy football is one that tends to be an easy joke to be made come draft time. “Hey, at least I didn’t draft a kicker in the first round like Joe did in his auto draft” We get the point, in leagues were yards and touchdowns reign supreme, kickers tend to be the least important position on your roster. There are some players out there that believe who heartedly that you shouldn’t even draft a kicker at all.

Twitter Not Fond of New Stadium Name for the Cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals generated a little buzz yesterday, announcing a new naming rights partner, State Farm. The organization has ended their naming rights agreement with The University of Phoenix after a 12-year relationship. The former company will continue to be a partner of the Arizona Cardinals in a smaller relationship. State Farm has agreed to an 18-year naming rights agreement that will rename that stadium “State Farm Stadium.”

My Five Biggest Surprises with the 53 Man Roster

The roster has been set, the Arizona Cardinals have narrowed the team down to 53. I have to admit, there were a lot of surprises for me with this roster. Let me start by saying no, I am not surprised that Mike Glennon is still on the roster. I didn’t see any team jumping up to trade for him and it would have been insane if the Cardinals had two rookies behind Sam Bradford to start the season. There were, however, some players that were retained that shocked me…
