Arizona Cardinals reportedly looking to trade down on Thursday night

Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports the Arizona Cardinals have expressed interested in trading down from the eighth overall pick on Thursday night.

Fantasy Impact

There are reportedly a handful of teams within the top 10 who are looking to trade down. Arizona doesn't have a second-round pick this year following the DeAndre Hopkins trade, so it makes sense why they would want to add more selections in the middle rounds of the draft. Offensive line and the defense in general are two needs for the Cardinals entering year two of the Kyler Murray era.

Cardinals D/ST struggles in Week 17

The Arizona Cardinals D/ST gave up 31 points in the team's Week 17 loss to the Rams.

Fantasy Impact

The defense registered just one sack and zero turnovers. The Cardinals' defense was one to avoid in 2019. We don't expect them to take a major step forward come 2020.

Arizona Cardinals D/ST record sack, interception, and fumble recovery

The Arizona Cardinals D/ST recorded a sack, an interception, and a fumble recovery in Week 15 against the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Impact

The Cardinals defense stepped up in this contest even if the counting stats do not show it. They were able to hold Baker Mayfield to 5.47 yards per attempt despite gamescript forcing the Browns to be aggressive throwing the ball. The Cardinals have the Seattle Seahawks on tap for Week 15, and are a recommended fade for streamers.

Cardinals D/ST forces two turnovers in loss

The Arizona Cardinals D/ST recovered two fumbles and registered three sacks in the team's Week 14 loss to the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

The unit also gave up 23 points. This isn't a defense you want to start in fantasy. Arizona hosts the Cleveland Browns in Week 15.

Cardinals D/ST struggles badly in loss to Rams

The Arizona Cardinals D/ST failed to record a turnover and registered just one sack in the team's 34-7 Week 13 loss to the Rams.

Fantasy Impact

Technically the defense gave up just 28 points, however, as Kyler Murray was also pick-sixed. This isn't a defense to fire up for fantasy purposes this season.
