Christian Kirk caught 3-of-6 targets for 57 yards in the Cardinals' Week 7 loss to the Broncos.

Both Josh Rosen and OC Mike McCoy seemed to lose track of Kirk for long stretches of time. He still ended up clearing 50 yards for the third-straight game, and fourth in five. Producing ahead of Larry Fitzgerald for most of the season, Kirk's WR4 appeal for Week 8 will be enhanced if the Cardinals fire McCoy, as is looking likely.

Jeff Heuerman wasn't targeted in the Broncos' Week 7 win over the Cardinals.

Heuerman actually was targeted once — catching a 10-yard touchdown — but it was erased by an offensive pass interference penalty. Heuerman will offer last-gasp TE2 appeal for what should hopefully be a high-scoring game with the Chiefs in Week 8.

Courtland Sutton caught 1-of-3 targets for a 28-yard touchdown in the Broncos' Week 7 win over the Cardinals.

Sutton's touchdown came on a first quarter trick play. Emmanuel Sanders took a toss on a reverse and found a wide-open Sutton. Sanders nearly overthrew the pass, but Sutton laid out to make a spectacular catch. The rookie has now scored in 2-of-3 games. Although his limited usage is mostly keeping him off the fantasy radar, Sutton will have WR4 appeal against the Chiefs in Week 8.

Ricky Seals-Jones caught 2-of-4 targets for 12 yards in the Cardinals' Week 7 loss to the Broncos.

The story of Seals-Jones' night was his apparent arm break in the second half, though he said after the game he escaped with a bruise. Although Josh Rosen went all the way off the rails this evening, RSJ will remain a low-end TE2 for Week 8 if he can get cleared.
Oct 19 - 12:13 AM

Royce Freeman rushed 13 times for 37 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos' Week 7 win over the Cardinals.

As Phillip Lindsay was running all over the Cardinals' pathetic run defense, Freeman had one of his quietest games of the season. He's now been held below three yards per carry in back-to-back games, dropping his YPC from 5.10 to 4.35. Freeman has been solid as a rookie, Lindsay has simply been better. Freeman will be a touchdown-dependent FLEX for Week 8 against the Chiefs.
Oct 19 - 12:08 AM

Larry Fitzgerald caught 4-of-8 targets for 40 yards and a touchdown in the Cardinals' Week 7 loss to the Broncos.

Shamefully, the score was Fitzgerald's first of the season. He's been hamstrung by nagging injuries and awful quarterback play. Fitzgerald got lit up on a fourth quarter hospital ball but was thankfully able to stay in the game. With Josh Rosen playing as bad as possible this evening, Fitz won't be on the WR4 radar for Week 8 against the 49ers. Fitzgerald hasn't posted more than 40 yards since Week 1.
Oct 19 - 12:03 AM

Demaryius Thomas caught 5-of-6 passes for 42 yards in the Broncos' Week 7 win over the Cardinals.

They were disappointing stats on a night the Cardinals won 45-10, but there was not much for Thomas to do with Cardinals QB Josh Rosen continually handing the ball to the Broncos' defense and setting up either touchdowns or excellent field position. Thomas will be firmly in the WR2 mix against the Chiefs' awful defense in Week 8.
Oct 19 - 12:01 AM

Case Keenum completed 14-of-21 passes for 161 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Broncos' 45-10, Week 7 win over the Cardinals.

Keenum added four carries for four yards. They're disappointing numbers considering the lopsided nature of the score, though five Cardinals turnovers kept setting the Broncos up with gorgeous field position, limiting Keenum's yardage opportunities. The Broncos' defense also housed a pair of pick sixes. Lastly, Emmanuel Sanders threw a 28-yard touchdown on a trick play. Keenum has been barely playable in two-quarterback leagues this season, but he will be a top-18 option against the Chiefs' barely-there defense in Week 8.

Speaking after Thursday's 45-10 loss to the Broncos, Cardinals coach Steve Wilks said it was "premature" to talk about any changes to his coaching staff.

Wilks said he knew the question was coming. The fact that he did not offer up an outright denial is ominous for McCoy's odds of having a job come Week 8. McCoy has been outrageously bad this season, criminally misusing David Johnson while seeming utterly clueless as to rookie quarterback Josh Rosen's strengths and weakness. The in-season firing would be McCoy's second-straight after he was canned by Denver last November. QBs coach Byron Leftwich would be in line to take over.

David Johnson rushed 14 times for 39 yards in the Cardinals' Week 7 loss to the Broncos, adding three receptions for 31 additional yards.

If you were watching, you know how infuriating this was. The Cardinals' clueless coaching staff continued to run Johnson right up the middle, only looking to get him into space deep into garbage time in the fourth quarter. It was play-calling so bad it had to be seen to be believed. That's been a theme all season, of course. It appears tonight's disaster could cost OC Mike McCoy his job. Even if it does, Johnson will have a hard time hitting RB1 value against the 49ers' middle-of-the-road run defense in Week 8. There is shockingly little talent around him.
Oct 18 - 11:40 PM

Emmanuel Sanders caught 6-of-7 targets for 102 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos' Week 7 win over the Cardinals, adding a 28-yard touchdown pass.

Sanders nearly overthrew Courtland Sutton on his wide-open touchdown pass in the first quarter, but the rookie was able to extend and make the catch. Sanders was left completely wide open on his 64-yard receiving score in the second quarter, as reserve S Rudy Ford seemed to have no idea what was going on. Sanders has now cleared 100 yards receiving in back-to-back games and 3-of-7 on the year. Case Keenum's play has often been ugly, but he has no qualms about looking Sanders' way. The Chiefs' burnable defense is on deck for a mouthwatering Week 8 matchup.
Oct 18 - 11:39 PM

Phillip Lindsay rushed 14 times for 90 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos' Week 7 win over the Cardinals.

Lindsay added a six-yard reception. It felt like Lindsay was delivering chunk gains every time he touched the ball, so it was disappointing that he got the rock just 16 times in a 45-10 victory. Part of the problem was short drives, as five Cardinals turnovers kept setting the Broncos up with gorgeous field position. Seven of Lindsay's 14 carries gained at least five yards, while five gained at least nine. Lindsay also had a 24-yarder called back by holding. Running circles around Royce Freeman every week — although good in his own right most of the year, Freeman went just 13/37/1 this evening — Lindsay is well established as an RB2.
Oct 18 - 11:24 PM

Josh Rosen completed 21-of-39 passes for 194 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions in the Cardinals' 45-10, Week 7 loss to the Broncos, also losing two fumbles.

Two of Rosen's picks were housed for scores. Rosen also tweaked his toe on the final play of the game but said he was "fine." This was one of the worst starts you will ever see from an NFL quarterback. Although he was getting zero help from his play-calling, Rosen was inexcusably bad, delivering passes late and not feeling pressure. He was lucky to escape with "only" five turnovers. Rosen does not have the biggest arm for a first-round quarterback, and it showed this evening. Which brings us back to the play-calling. OC Mike McCoy seems to have zero awareness of Rosen's strengths and weaknesses, dialing up one sideline out after another while all but ignoring play action. There's a strong chance he's fired during the Cardinals' "mini bye" and replaced by QBs coach Byron Leftwich.
Oct 18 - 11:24 PM

Broncos S Darian Stewart was forced from Thursday's game against the Cardinals with a neck injury and will not return.

Stewart took a helmet to the head and was down on the ground for several moments. He did eventually get to the sideline under his own power. He was initially called questionable before being ruled out in the second quarter.
Oct 18 - 9:36 PM

Broncos PR DaeSean Hamilton was forced from Thursday's game against the Cardinals with a knee injury and will not return.

A fourth-round rookie, Hamilton got rolled into on a return. It did not look good.
