Fantasy Football Junkie’s Hits and Misses – Week 8

There isn’t a science involved here. I have legitimate reasons for picking the players I do to out produce their fantasy rankings. Most of the time it’s close to 50/50 and I’m perfectly fine with that. But lately, my picks have been downright pathetic. I can take it. I have, in my mind, very broad shoulders. The kind of shoulders that could lift up a mountain. The kind of shoulders...

Unselfish Cardinals have big receiving corps

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) Nine players caught passes for the Arizona Cardinals in their win over the Oakland Raiders. That is not that unusual. Carson Palmer doesn't have to force it into any particular receiver, just look around and find another one that's open. ''I've been telling you guys from day one. We're loaded at the skill positions,'' offensive coordinator...

Fantasy Football Starts and Sits for Week 8 in 2014

Cardinals' Carson Palmer says nerve no longer an issue

At the tail end of his news conference Wednesday, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians was asked if the nerve problem in Carson Palmer's right shoulder is now a thing of the past. "Yeah, knock on wood," Arians said, rapping three times on the top of table at which he was sitting. "Hopefully, we don't have to talk about that one anymore." If it's true, and...

The last time the Arizona Cardinals were 5-1 was 1976. The team put together a neat infographic about what was going on in the world in 1976.

Eagles Nation mailbag: How good is the Arizona Cardinals offense really?

Welcome to another edition of our Wednesday Eagles Nation mailbag. This week’s question concerns the next opponent on Philly’s schedule: the Arizona Cardinals. You might remember that last year these two played quite a barnburner in December of last year at Lincoln Financial.

Game within the game: Raiders vs Cardinals

This week is yet another loss for the Raiders and a lot of head scratching as their record drops to 0-6. It also extended their losing streak to 12 games dating back to week 12 of last season. It is also their worst start since 1962. Their lack of performance has already led to the dismissal of head coach, Dennis Allen and has put general manager, Reggie McKenzie on the hot seat...

Fantasy Football Week 8 Waiver Wire

Week 7 of the Fantasy Football season continued to show how crazy this season has been for owners. The waiver wire could be a huge boost for some teams, especially if you listened last week and grabbed guys like Odell Beckham Jr. and Carson Palmer. You can always refer back to the Week 7 Waiver Wire pickups to see if any of those guys made it through the cracks or are worth adding...

Arizona Cardinals happy to have stability with Carson Palmer

Carson Palmer was unsure of what lay ahead when the Cardinals traded for him in April of 2013. But he definitely knew what he was leaving behind with the Oakland Raiders. "There was so much chaos," he said. There was a time in the not-so-distant past that a player seeking order and normalcy would not expect to find it in Arizona. But Palmer has, and as someone who largely...
