Cardinals' T.J. Logan: Returns three kickoffs Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Logan returned three kickoffs for 49 yards during Sunday's 43-0 loss to the Rams.

On the field for all five Rams kickoffs, Logan otherwise didn't receive any reps, either on offense or other special-teams units. With David Johnson and Chase Edmonds taking on all the snaps at running back, Logan will be contained to his current role for the foreseeable future. However, Logan would be the next man up in the event of an injury.

Cardinals' Chase Edmonds: Picks up 20 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edmonds snagged all five of his targets for 15 yards and added a five-yard run during Sunday's 34-0 loss to the Rams.

It hasn't been for much yardage, but there seems to be a concerted effort to get Edmonds touches in Arizona. The problem has been that the Cardinals have fallen behind early in back to back weeks and have looked vanilla on offense. Until the Cardinals are able to play more balanced and take some shots downfield, it's going to continue to be a tough ride for Edmonds. Considering that the team has yet to find a way to unleash star David Johnson, brighter days are not guaranteed in the desert.

Cardinals' David Johnson: Could see more work in slot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arizona head coach Steve Wilks acknowledged Monday that the team needs to be more "creative" in finding ways to get Johnson the ball in space, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. "We talked about that," Wilks said, referring to his conversations with offensive coordinator Mike McCoy regarding Johnson's usage. "We've got to utilize David from the standpoint of getting him out of the backfield, putting him in the slot, putting him out there to try and create that matchup that we need."

After making a full recovery from a dislocated wrist that cost him nearly all last season and signing a lucrative contract extension ahead of Week 1, Johnson appeared primed for a massive three-down role heading into his fourth NFL campaign. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, Johnson has only managed 118 total yards and a touchdown on 28 touches (22 carries, six receptions), with his limited work in the passing game particularly alarming. The Cardinals' puzzling decision to deploy Johnson primarily as a between-the-tackles runner rather than utilizing him in space -- where his high-end speed and agility make him a game-changing mismatch -- seems to have hindered the 26-year-old's effectiveness thus far, so it's at least encouraging that Wilks is receptive to adjusting the team's playcalling. It's unclear if any schematic changes would also be accompanied by a switch at quarterback, as Wilks was unwilling to say Monday whether he would replace incumbent starter Sam Bradford with first-round rookie Josh Rosen ahead of Sunday's game against the Bears.

Cardinals' Ricky Seals-Jones: Leads team in targets in blowout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seals-Jones caught four of six passes for 17 yards in Sunday's 34-0 loss to the Rams.

The six targets were actually a team-high mark in a game that saw the Rams hold a 67-43 advantage in snaps and a 432-137 advantage in yards. Seals-Jones appeared to dominate the playing time at tight end for a second time in as many weeks, but it still isn't translating into production. He might benefit if the Cardinals switched from Sam Bradford to Josh Rosen, though the team's issues clearly aren't just a matter of the quarterback position. There's a chance Seals-Jones will lose some of his snaps and targets if Jermaine Gresham (Achilles) is ready for Week 3 against the Bears.

Cardinals' David Johnson: Held to 51 yards in blowout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson took 13 carries for 48 yards and caught one of two targets for three yards in Sunday's 34-0 loss to the Rams.

The issue wasn't Arizona abandoning the run so much as the Rams dominating possession with a 67-43 advantage in snaps. Johnson at least found pay dirt and drew nine targets in last week's ugly loss, but he was rendered irrelevant Sunday in a thoroughly terrible performance by the Cardinals. Despite the concerns regarding team context, Johnson should bounce back -- at least to some extent -- in a Week 3 home game against the Bears.
