QB - DET
Week 14 Outlook
David Blough has been released by the Arizona Cardinals.
Blough was brought in to be part of the QB competition in Arizona, but he has now been released and won't get the job. The QB1 spot seems to be between newly-acquired Joshua Dobbs and rookie Clayton Tune right now, neither of which will be particularly good for Arizona's pass catchers.
The Cardinals have announced that David Blough will be the starting quarterback for the team's Week 18 game against the San Francisco 49ers.
Blough got a spot start last week with Arizona having multiple quarterbacks injured for that game, and he played reasonably well in the situation he was put in. They will start him again next week, and he will round out Arizona's season with them out of playoff contention. DeAndre Hopkins (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday, so there probably aren't many Arizona pass catchers worth starting against a stellar 49ers' defense.
David Blough, who signed with the Cardinals a few weeks ago, completed 24 of 40 passes with a TD and rushed for seven yards in Sunday's loss to the Falcons.
Blough got the start over Trace McSorley with Colt McCoy unable to play due to a concussion and put forth a solid effort. If Blough starts again next week, he'll face a more formidable challenge as the Cardinals take on the Niners.
David Blough will be Arizona's starting quarterback for Week 17's game against the Atlanta Falcons.
Arizona was initially going to roll with Colt McCoy as the starting quarterback, but he is dealing with concussion symptoms and will be unavailable for the game. That leaves Blough as the next man up for the Cardinals, and he will be the starter. They also have a banged up WR room, so this passing attack may be one to avoid for the fantasy championship this week.
The Cardinals signed David Blough off the Vikings practice squad.
This comes with Kyler Murray out for the season due to a torn ACL. Blough will likely take Murray's spot on the roster. Colt McCoy should remain the starter the rest of the season for the Cardinals.
