Summary

As a rookie second round pick in 2015 Golden showed signs of becoming a quality starter for the Cardinals. In his second season he showed signs of being great. He finished the season with 41 solo stops, 12.5 sacks, 4 forced fumbles and a recovery. With 5.5 of his sacks and 2 forced fumbles coming in the final three games, Golden looked as if he may be ready to challenge for the sack title in 2017. What we know for sure is he and Chandler Jones give Arizona a tandem of outside rushers that are good as any in the league. Entering only his third year, Golden's best years are probably ahead of him. Like most sack producing 3-4 outside linebackers, Golden's fantasy value ranges from third starter or quality backup in tackle heave scoring systems, to stud LB1 in big play based leagues. (June 2)
