Latest News

Cardinals | David Johnson looking to achieve big goal (Sat Apr 13, 05:10 PM) - Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson said he still wants to post at least 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards in the same season.

Our View: Johnson is coming off somewhat of a down season in 2018. He should touch the ball as much as possible with the Cardinals new offense in 2019. Johnson was close to the 1,000/1,000 club in 2016 with 1,128 yards rushing and 852 yard receiving. Only two running backs in NFL history have ever achieved that (Roger Craig, Marshall Faulk) but Johnson could get there if he stays healthy this season. Even off a disappointing year, Johnson is still a RB1 for Fantasy GMs.

Cardinals | David Johnson excited for offense (Thu Apr 11, 09:20 PM) - Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson said he is excited to work out of the shotgun in head coach Kliff Kingsbury's offense. 'I think it really opens up more space for me and makes me able to read the defense a little bit more,' Johnson said.

Our View: Johnson had a disappointing season in 2018 but he still finished as the no.10 fantasy running back in standard-scoring leagues. This new offense should put him front and center, and Johnson should be a RB1 for Fantasy GMs once again.
