Josh Rosen Falling to Cardinals Bodes Well for his Fantasy Football Future

Once thought as the No. 1 quarterback in the draft, Josh Rosen fell all the way to pick No. 10, where the Cardinals jumped ahead of the Dolphins to grab their franchise quarterback. Once he takes the reigns from Sam Bradford, Rosen will be able to lean on David Johnson, creating a potentially deadly one-two punch in the desert.

My No. 1 ranked quarterback before the draft, Rosen is the most NFL-ready of the bunch. He’ll start off the season behind Sam Bradford, but we all know that Bradford won’t be able to last a full season. Although Rosen was visibly pissed off by free falling, he could not have landed in a better situation. The UCLA product stayed on the west coast and will play in a dome for half the season. Next, he’ll get a positive Surrounding Talent score since he’ll be able to learn behind Sam Bradford, and is surrounded by elite talents such as the great Larry Fitzgerald and David Johnson. Lastly, Rosen will be injected into Mike McCoy’s unstoppable passing attack that has posted top 10 in yardage in six of the last nine seasons. Sure, McCoy did well with Peyton Manning and Philip Rivers, but he also got Kyle Orton to have his best two seasons under his guidance. We’ll see Rosen at some point this year and he has a chance to make some noise as a rookie.
