Week 7: vs Denver Broncos

All WR vs DEN

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Cardinals passing offense remains one of the lowest performing units in the league--one of only three teams with fewer than 1,000 passing yards through Week 6 with only four touchdowns to six interceptions. Josh Rosen has yet to flash much of anything in three starts for the Cardinals. Despite passing for 240 yards last week, Rosen failed to find the end zone while throwing one interception in a tough matchup. While he was more accurate last week, Rosen still is making some bad reads and missing opportunities on a regular basis. Rookie Christian Kirk has been his favorite target in three starts, leading the team in receiving yards over the past two weeks with over 75 yards in both games. Larry Fitzgerald was the most heavily targeted receiver last week, but he managed to haul in just five receptions for 39 yards. Fitzgerald has had a very disappointing season plagued by injury. Last week's 39-yard outing was his best game since Week 1, and Fitzgerald has been held out of the end zone all season. David Johnson also continues to lack involvement and production in the passing game as he hauled in only two receptions for the second straight week. The Broncos passing defense has had ups and downs this season with some encouraging statistics of limiting opposing passers to fewer than 300 yards in all but one game while giving up multiple touchdowns just three times. This secondary, however, has struggled with Bradley Roby as a significant liability on the outside. Roby was beaten terribly by Robby Anderson in Week 5, and he gave up a handful of big plays to both Robert Woods and Brandin Cooks last week in another dreadful outing. Chris Harris continues to play well out of the slot and should help hold Larry Fitzgerald in check, but look for Christian Kirk to get this plus matchup against Roby. With Roby aside though, the Broncos defense has held up fairly well--especially during the first half of play against Patrick Mahomes in Week 4 as they showed significant promise against one of the top quarterbacks this season. Jared Goff also had pedestrian numbers as they kept him out of the end zone last week, but much of that was attributed to how terrible this defense played against the run. The trenches are where the Broncos can find an advantage this week, as the combination of Bradley Chubb and Von Miller should have a significant advantage over the pair of struggling Cardinals tackles.
