Dynasty Recap – Week 11 – Cardinals beat Jaguars, 27-14

  • Cardinals running back Andre Ellington had even less carries than suspected with eight for three yards to go along with two receptions for 10 yards.
  • Cardinals receiver Michael Floyd had the best game of his career with six catches for 193 yards and a touchdown. With Larry Fitzgerald’s status unknown for next year, it wouldn’t hurt to explore Floyd’s availability in your dynasty league.
  • Cardinals tight end Rob Housler had his best game of the year with six catches for 70 yards on nine targets. Until Housler provides some consistency, Housler is a ‘sell’ candidate.
  • Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell had another sack to bring his season-total to five. Campbell continues to be one of the most consistent defensive linemen in the game.

Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Seahawks beat Cardinals, 34-22

  • The Cardinals continue to give Rashard Mendenhall carries where he produced 1.7 YPC on 13 carries. Why they don’t see the light and hand over rushing duties to rookie Andre Ellington, I’ll never know. But one thing’s for sure – Ellington is the guy to own in Arizona. He still managed two catches on five targets. If he ever gets full-time duties, watch out.
  • Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer had 45 pass attempts but only five were directed towards Larry Fitzgerald. You have to wonder about Fitz’s long-term value with Carson Palmer and that offensive line at the helm.
  • In good news, Cardinals receiver Michael Floyd got 10 of those targets and pulled in six catches for 71 yards.
  • Seattle linebacker Malcolm Smith had the best game of his young career with nine tackles, a sack, two tackles for a loss and a pass defended. Smith is just 24 and is the starting weak-side linebacker in a very good defense so there is long-term potential there.
