Cardinals Week 2 Preseason Recap
Sam Bradford looked healthy and sharp during the Cardinals’ second preseason contest, completing all six of his passes to six different targets. Arizona’s season largely depends on his health, but if he can remain upright, we’re looking at a team that can easily surpass their 5.5 win total.

David Johnson had six carries for 22 yards and a touchdown. If you took him no. 1 overall in fantasy, no one would look at you that crookedly. He should be in for a monster season and potentially a historical one if Bradford can stay on the field and keep defenses honest.
Should Bradford go down, Josh Rosen may be able to keep the team in enough games to hit the six-win mark, though there’s a lot of risk baked into that 5.5 Vegas line.
Rosen had several really sharp drives, though it’s important to remember the competition. The Saints improved on defense last year which was partially a result of them staying healthy. They lack depth on that side of the ball, especially in the pass rush, so Rosen had a much easier time against these backups than he did against the Chargers’ deep roster last week.
Rosen and fellow rookie Christian Kirk had good chemistry. Kirk caught four balls. Kirk is worth a flyer in ppr leagues. Not in standard just yet.
