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

Another underwhelming outing
QBArizona Cardinals
December 2, 2018
Rosen completed 11 of 26 passes for 149 yards without a touchdown or interception and added 32 yards on two rushing attempts in Sunday's 20-17 win over the Packers.
ANALYSIS
Rosen had thrown at least one interception in each of his past six starts, so avoiding such a turnover was a step in the right direction. Unfortunately, the rookie quarterback also took a step back in terms of completion percentage, as his 42.3 percent mark was his second-lowest of the season. The 2018 first-rounder's worth a speculative stash in keeper or dynasty formats, but redraft owners don't want to touch Rosen with a 10-foot pole with the fantasy playoffs looming. That should remain the case when Detroit comes to town in Week 14.
