LET’S MEET THE OFFENSE, SCHEME, & COACHES TENDENCIES

11 & 12 personnel is the Base Offensive Scheme for the Arizona Cardinals

  X            LT LG C RG RT TE1 W (TE2)      Z

QB

1 RB

When the Arizona Cardinals Modified West Coast, offense is clicking and working as a well-oiled unit this offense can be very pleasing to watch on Sunday’s. When the O linemen are holding their blocks long enough for Carson Palmer to make his 5-7 step drops and take the long, deep shots they are at their best. Unfortunately, the O line cannot sustain the pressure at times and Palmer is sacked or is intercepted. While a turnover may be on Palmer’s stats for that evening head coach Bruce Arians does not care one bit. He gives Palmer the freedom to be a complete gun slinger. This offense is built around the deep 9 routes, posts, and play action, with David Johnson serving not only as a RB but as a slot WR at times. Truthfully DJ needs to have RB/WR designation in fantasy. It’s very rare to see a big back who has the speed to hit the corner and take it to the house and the strength to take on the defensive tackles in the A – B gaps. Then he can be motioned out and run a pivot or wheel route is very impressive to FantasyFootball1on1.com.

The playbook is basic yet the verbiage is complex enough to give rookies a fit. The RB’s need to learn pass protections and the WR’s need to master zone and man. Sometimes there are option routes but not at a level like the Giants or Patriots. This means that rookies will take a while before they can be trusted. So, temper expectations from this year’s Cardinals rookies class to get up to speed to where they can play without thinking and be trusted.

Carson Palmer has free reign to do whatever he sees fit on an offensive play or down. This will be hard to replace once he retires because he has above average pre-snap/post snap abilities. Quarterbacks coming into the NFL do not possess those pre-snap/post snap traits and they are hard to teach. Usually you have them or you don’t. We here at FantasyFootball1on1.com expect Palmer to play 1 more season before he calls it quits after the 2018 season has ended. Especially if they can stay healthy and make a serious run for a chip. Make no mistake Carson Palmer’s presence will be missed. Do not underestimate this.

Drew Stanton | 5 | QB | Michigan State | Arizona CardinalsHt: 6032c / 6′ 03″ | Wt: 230
Blaine Gabbert | 7 | QB | Missouri | Arizona CardinalsHt: 6043c / 6′ 04″ | Wt: 234
Trevor Knight | 1 | QB | Texas A&M | Arizona Cardinals Ht: 6013 / 6′ 01″ | Wt: 219

The guys above are the Cardinals alternative QB options if Palmer goes down. Yes, the whole offense stops. WR’s basically stop while David Johnson slows up to readjust to carry the team.

We here at FantasyFootball1on1.com fully expect David Johnson’s workload to be tempered a bit but not to the point where he will not be worth the top 3 spots in redraft. They used him too much down the stretch last year and we don’t anticipate them overheating him this season. While everything sounds good on paper once the game has commenced winning becomes paramount and he could get near overheating usage in various game scripts. We here at FantasyFootball1on1.com can very well see a veteran RB being added before or in camp. This move will tell you all you need to know about the backup RB situation in Arizona.

Elijhaa Penny | 35 | RB | Idaho | Arizona Cardinals Ht:  6011 / 6′ 01″ | Wt: 233

If they do not add a veteran presence please keep a close eye on the guy above.

The WR’s on this roster are not full route tree technicians. Most offenses call for big body, taller WR’s who can beat you with girth and not so much with speed. That theory does not apply here. If you haven’t noticed, this offense is built around speed, PERIOD. You can be a 5‘7 WR and weigh 190 but run a 4.4 and you will have a chance to succeed in this offensive scheme. It’s important to know that all WR’s are created equal in this offensive scheme. Knowing certain physique or body types do not give you a fantasy football tactical advantage like the other schemes do. Sparq scores and metrics tend to do well in this system. Make sure you watch the preseason games for fantasy football purposes because the WR’s will show you who is ready to take the next step and you can easily buy them low. (We will give you an ongoing updated review along with our recommendations with the draft kit for free). Whichever WR steps up to the plate there are a ton of targets to be had in this scheme. This will change once Palmer retires so watch out. This WR will come cheap enough (ADP) to win you multiple weeks in your fantasy leagues so pay attention.

 John Brown | 12 | WR | Pittsburg State | Arizona Cardinals Ht: 5100c / 5′ 10″ | Wt: 179
JJ Nelson | 14 | WR | Alabama-Birmingham | Arizona Cardinals Ht: 5102 / 5′ 10″ | Wt: 151
The guys above are best in BEST-BALL then REDRAFT then DYNASTY.

The TE is somewhat nonexistent at times for long stretches. Very rarely are they used as a safety valve like other schemes do. Maybe it’s the lack of athletic talent or just the simple fact that Bruce has phased out this position going forward.

Troy Niklas | 87 | TE | Notre Dame | Arizona Cardinals Ht: 6064c / 6′ 06″ | Wt: 270

Put on WATCH LIST.

Once Palmer retires be on the lookout for a serious upgrade at TE and WR for the new QB. Also, the new QB will need to throw to bigger WR’s so expect the breakout from the shorter WR success this year, under Palmer, to be short lived.  This whole scheme will transition to a Traditional Pro Set Offense and feature David Johnson once Larry Fitzgerald and Carson Palmer retire and we here at FantasyFootball1on1.com don’t want you to get stuck in that transition phase. Start the selling process in dynasty but in redraft an best ball please feel free to use the role players for the 2017 season. Remember, in Dynasty we highly recommend phasing out everyone NOT named David Johnson before the 2017 season is finalized. ARIZONA’S scheme change is imminent! We rely 93% on film study so we see the transitions coming before the masses and therefore recommend you buy in or out of certain situations to keep you ahead of your competition.

NOW LET’S LOOK AT THE INDIVIDUAL PLAYERS FOR 2017

Carson Palmer
– Productive 2016 despite being banged up and increasing age. This whole offense revolves around Palmer as observed in 2015 – without Palmer the entire offensive production drops off.
– 2017 is a huge question mark regarding health. Mechanics are still in order, so as long as he is healthy I would not worry about a drop-in accuracy or yards. Touchdowns may be a concern, but expect around the 25-30 mark as long as he is the single caller.
– Even if the Cardinals draft a quarterback Palmer will still produce as he is. The future offense might be founded on this quarterback.
– FANTASY SPIN – Draft late and as a QB #2 or a backup plan. Injury and health is a major concern. Was sacked 40 times last year (7th most in NFL) and hit 117 times (1st in NFL).

David Johnson
– One of the most dynamic backs in the NFL. A joy to watch as combines finesse, power, and functionality. After a strong 2016, expect more of the same. Possess great use in both the running game and passing game. As Palmer ages, expect more of the offense to flow through Johnson by the way of the short passing game.
– Johnson was the second leading receiver for the Cardinals in 2016. Arguably MVP candidate had the Cardinals made the playoffs. Had 4 receiving touchdowns.
– Barring the Cardinals draft a deep threat at receiver, they will not be able to get down the field quickly. Thus, the offense will change to slow, chunk yards. This is great news for David Johnson in the red zone.
FANTASY SPIN – Draft as RB #1 and name your fantasy team the Red Wave, because Johnson could carry you to your fantasy championship.

Andre Ellington
– A few years ago, Ellington was supposed to be the future of the Cardinals offense. Clearly, they have moved on.
– Would not recommend drafting him as a handcuff. Look to another second-tier running back instead.
– FANTASY SPIN – The Cardinal’s run production is more a product of David Johnson’s capability instead of the offensive line. This offensive line is too shaky to trust fully in a backup running back.

Larry Fitzgerald
– Eventually all receivers start to age, except Fitzgerald. Logic would have dictated that Fitz would have declined last year. His fantasy worth is like Palmer – when he is healthy he will be a solid player.
– He barely got to 1023 yards last year, but could return to the 900-yard mark with ease.
– Early in the season Palmer will throw to the WR he is comfortable with. Fitzgerald will have a stronger first half than second half of the year. As the Cardinals move to a new target, Fitzgerald’s yards may go down in the second half of the season.
FANTASY SPIN – Draft as a mid-tier receiver. Do not rely on him and do not reach. A superb WR3 for your fantasy leagues. However, make a mark where Fitzgerald falls to you and take him. Also, look for him to taper off around mid-season and trade him away while he still has trade fire. Don’t get stuck holding the bag.

J.J. Nelson
– Nelson is a hit or miss player, also known as a fantasy headache. Despite being the #2 WR, and gathering 568 yards and 6 touchdowns, he only had five games in which he would have been worth starting.
– The upside for Nelson is if the Cardinals are going to use a deep threat that is on the roster, it would be Nelson. He did have 7 touchdowns; but at only 5’10’ and 156 pounds, he does not make for much of a red zone.
– Nelson’s connection with Palmer does not exist enough to make him a full time WR. This is one of the reasons I expect the Cardinals to draft a WR2 this year.
– FANTASY SPIN – Most likely un-draftable except in deep leagues. However, mark him to watch on the waiver wire. Someone must catch from Palmer.

Chad Williams (Rookie – WR – Grambling State)
– Good sized receiver (6’1” 204 pounds) with talent and functionality, but some off-the field baggage.
o Charged with marijuana and illegal fire arm possession on LSU campus
– Surprised the Arizona Cardinals took Williams in round three. He was highly productive at Grambling State in his senior season, catching 90 passes for 1,337 yards and 11 touchdowns.
SCOUTING REPORT — Excellent catch radius, but his route stepping is off. He is raw. The one thing all great receivers have is the ability to work off the ball and use their feet to establish freedom in the first five steps. Williams does not flash this ability yet. Mastering the route tree adds to his evaluation as a project. One point falls in his favor is that this is mainly a 9, slant, post route team so this may help him get acclimated a tad bit faster as these routes are his strength.
FANTASY SPIN – Despite being a project, the Cardinals have obvious plans for him since he was taken in round three. We will watch his development in camp and the pre-season for you but consider drafting Williams in dynasty leagues in the latter rounds. Some say that he’s there to replace Larry Fitzgerald but we cannot cosign that BOLD statement yet.

Aaron Dobson and Marquis Bundy
– Dobson: 6’3” – 205 lbs. – 4th year – Marshall
o Previously with New England (’13-’15) and Detroit (’16)
– Bundy: 6’4” – 215 lbs. – 1st year New Mexico
– If there are two players who may replace Larry Fitzgerald, it would be one of these two receivers. They have great size and the body type to fill his role as a possession receiver. However, the production is completely unknown. If you are going to watch the Cardinals training camp this offseason, watch how these two players perform and if they connect with Palmer.

2017 NFL Draft Results
Arizona Cardinals
1 13 Haason Reddick ILB Temple
2 36 Budda Baker S Washington
3 98 Chad Williams WR Grambling St
4 115 Dorian Johnson OG Pitt
5 157 Will Holden OT Vanderbilt
5* 179 T.J. Logan RB North Carolina
6 208 Rudy Ford S Auburn

– The Arizona Cardinals had one of the best drafts, fitting their needs for now and for the future. Reddick and Baker will come in to improve their defense immediately; giving it an electric spark of youth.

– Drafting Dorian Johnson and Will Holden on the offensive line show that the Cardinals recognize the need for improvement on the offensive line. Like many of the offensive lineman in this class, both are raw and will need to improve functionally before they can make a mark in the NFL. At the very least, this will instill a sense of competition into the offensive line room. Until training camp and the pre-season arrives, it will be hard to evaluate how effective the new offensive linemen will be for the Cardinals.

– T.J. Logan is a fifth-round pick, but keep in mind that good running backs can be found late. Teams look for running backs that fit a scheme, thus just because we did not have a particular running back ranked high, does not mean they will not succeed in a scheme.

– T.J. Logan served as a change of pace back at North Carolina, and should be expected to take on much of the same role. Logan is not big enough to face linebackers, but has the potential to service as a backfield pass catcher and special teams’ all-star. Won ACC media award for work as an all-purpose player.
