22-Year-Old QuarterbackQB
Arizona Cardinals
2018 Fantasy Outlook
The 10th overall pick in this year's draft, Rosen will compete in training camp with Sam Bradford for the starting job. He likely won't win it, but Rosen is at least in a good situation. Bradford is injury prone and clearly just a placeholder until the rookie is ready. Plus, new offensive coordinator Mike McCoy has a long history of playing to his quarterback's strength, which for Bradford likely means high-percentage throws in lieu of attacking downfield with his average-at-best arm. That should work for Rosen, as well. While scouts praised his footwork, mechanics and ability to quickly process information at the line, they also questioned his arm strength. When the Cardinals do make Rosen the starter, he should jump in without altering the passing game much. Expect a lot of short and intermediate throws that take advantage of Rosen's accuracy and allow the offense's two proven playmakers - David Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald - to gobble up yards after the catch. Getting rid of the ball quickly will also help protect Rosen from an offensive line that allowed 52 sacks last year, though the team made modest upgrades. Read Past Outlooks

Gets vocal support from Kingsbury
QBArizona Cardinals
February 12, 2019
New head coach Kliff Kingsbury said Tuesday that Rosen "is our guy," Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Trade rumors involving Rosen started Monday when Kyler Murray declared his intention to focus on football rather than baseball. Kingsbury is known to have an affinity for the 21-year-old quarterback prospect, having said in October that he'd draft Murray at No. 1 overall if he could. It just so happens Kingsbury now has that opportunity, though he doesn't actually have final say over personnel decisions in Arizona. Regardless of how he actually feels, Kingsbury has a clear incentive to vocalize support for Rosen, a No. 10 overall pick who was put in a near-impossible position during his rookie campaign. Tuesday's comment won't kill the trade rumors.
