Cardinals D/ST gives up four TDs to Kyle Allen

The Arizona Cardinals D/ST took a beating in the team's 38-20 Week 3 loss to Kyle Allen and the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

Allen threw four four touchdowns in this one. Arizona registered just one fumble recovery and two sacks. The unit is unplayable in fantasy this season.

Cardinals D/ST fails to register a turnover in Week 2

The Arizona Cardinals D/ST failed to register a turnover in the team's 23-17 Week 2 loss to the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact

All the unit could muster was two sacks of Lamar Jackson. Arizona doesn't have a particularly strong defense and won't be a recommended option for a Week 3 meeting with the Panthers.

Cardinals D/ST records three sacks and two fumble recoveries

The Arizona Cardinals D/ST recorded three sacks and recovered two fumbles as the team tied the Detroit Lions 27-27 in Week 1.

Fantasy Impact

The Cardinals' defense isn't projected to be very good this season. They will not be a fantasy option next week against the Ravens.

Cardinals to fire Steve Wilks

The Cardinals will reportedly fire head coach Steve Wilks.

Fantasy Impact

Wilks was in his first season with the team, making the move surprising in that way. However, there had been rumblings for some time that Wilks would be done after this season given the team's inept play and questionable use of players, like David Johnson. There were also concerns around rookie quarterback Josh Rosen, who failed to take a step forward like the other first-round rookie signal callers. Wilks was a defensive coordinator prior to taking the head coaching job in Arizona, and he could return to coaching in 2019 in that capacity.

Cardinals D/ST struggles versus the Rams in Week 16

The Arizona Cardinals D/ST recorded two sacks and recovered a fumble in the team's 31-9 Week 16 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Impact

Arizona likely wasn't started by many fantasy players anyway. The unit can also be avoided in Week 17 when they travel to Seattle to face Russell Wilson and company.
