Arizona Cardinals 2019 Fantasy Football Projections

In addition to viewing our 2019 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2019 fantasy football projections for the Arizona Cardinals.




Kyler Murray522.3319.93708.322.213.0676.3419.74.39279.32
Not only did the Cardinals select Murray first overall to give their new head coach a quarterback ideally suited to run his offense, the team invested heavily in weapons to help their young signal-caller succeed. Granted, the offensive line remains a major work in progress, something I have the team addressing in my 2020 NFL Mock Draft, but the Air Raid offense should be more exciting than last year's last-ranked offense, if nothing else. Given his elite quickness and dual-threat abilities, his fantasy upside and floor are both much higher than for a typical rookie quarterback.

David Johnson272.21102.411.351.1505.93.27248.25
Believing 2019 will be "similar to 2016" (2,118 YFS and 20 TDs), Johnson (once again) has his sights set on a 1,000/1,000 season. Given the up-tempo and wide-open nature of the offense, Johnson should have a lot more opportunities to make plays in space and significantly improve upon last year's numbers.
Chase Edmonds50.5176.81.7718.294.60.0938.3
Locked in as DJ's handcuff, Edmonds has generated some praise from the coaching staff this offseason, but it would take an injury to Johnson for him to become fantasy-relevant in standard-sized leagues.
T.J. Logan5.
D.J. Foster2.170.010.8601.36

Christian Kirk65.5910.54.753.126.40.02122.31
As bad as Arizona's 32nd-ranked pass offense was last season, Kirk was a consistent producer down the stretch before a foot injury prematurely ended his rookie season. With at least 40 yards in seven of his final eight games, Kirk was a top-30 receiver from Weeks 5 to 13. Even though the team drafted three receivers in the 2019 NFL Draft, Kirk has "a good feel" for the new offense and is poised for a major step forward in an offense that should generate more volume and productivity overall.
Larry Fitzgerald78.8835.35.91000118.99
Fitzgerald isn't getting any younger (then again, who is?) and he's coming off a disappointing season (69/734/6). Before last season, however, he posted three consecutive 100/1,000 seasons. Perhaps he won't bounce back to the 100/1,000 level, but the new offense should allow him to post better numbers in 2019 and he's a nice value compared to his current ADP.
Andy Isabella33.5415.42.682.111.60.0158.84
The small-school receiver led all of college football in receiving yards (1,698) last season and the speedster (4.31 forty) had some of his biggest games against his toughest opponents (e.g., 15/219/2 at Georgia in his final college game).
Hakeem Butler16.5273.92.8900044.73
One of the better values (regardless of position) in the 2019 NFL Draft, Butler fell further than most had expected. While he may lack polish (route running and drops), he has the size (6-5, 227 pounds and 35 1/4-inch arms) and speed (4.48 forty) to excel especially in the red zone.
Keesean Johnson11.2136.60.5600017.02
Chad Williams2.727.50.140003.59

Ricky Seals-Jones25.1306.21.3800038.9
The Cardinals added free-agent tight ends Charles Clay and Maxx Williams this offseason and Seals-Jones had a disappointing second season (10.1 Y/R and only one TD on 34 receptions). With high tide lifting all boats, the high-volume offense gives RSJ the potential to improve in his third season, but he's not worth drafting.
Charles Clay16.9153.80.6800019.46
Maxx Williams13.1115.30.6600015.49
Caleb Wilson0.79.80.040001.22
