Josh Rosen opens up about NFL Draft rumors

Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen spoke to Sports Illustrated about the NFL Draft and rumors surrounding he and former Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray.

Fantasy Impact

Amid all of the off-seasons rumors about Kyler Murray being selected by the Cardinals with the first pick in the NFL Draft, Rosen seems to still have a positive attitude. He talked about his mental state and outlook on the situation when he said, “control what you can control,” although he did call the rumors of his possible trade from Arizona “annoying.” If one thing’s for sure, it’s that Rosen still has his competitive fire, vowing to “prove them right if they keep me and prove them wrong if they ship me off.”

Josh Rosen still a potential option for Redskins

Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports the Redskins continue "doing genuine due diligence" on Cardinals QB Josh Rosen.

Fantasy Impact

The Redskins were initially the top option in the Rosen sweepstakes before they signed Case Keenum. Washington is planning to be without Alex Smith this year and it's fair to wonder how effective Smith will be when (if) he returns in 2020. It makes sense why they have interest in Rosen. The Giants, Chargers, and Patriots are other teams who have been rumored as having interest.

Josh Rosen garnering interest from Redskins

NFL Draft insider Tony Pauline is reporting that the Redskins have "openly spoken about trading for" Cardinals QB Josh Rosen at the combine.

Fantasy Impact

Rosen's name has been kicked around trade rumors ever since the Cardinals brought in Kliff Kingsbury as the impending sophomore signal caller might not be viewed as the best fit for Kingsbury's air raid philosophy. Should the Cardinals elect to deal Rosen, it appears that the Redskins are the first team to legitimately inquire about him, which makes sense. The Redskins don't exactly have the most cap space and have ample needs. What's more, they'll likely be on the hook for Alex Smith's contract, which means bringing in a high-priced veteran quarterback might be out of the question. Acquiring a quarterback like Rosen who is still on his rookie deal could be in Washington's best interest looking ahead in terms of salary cap.

Josh Rosen an "extremely talented thrower"

New Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury called Josh Rosen an extremely talented thrower.

Fantasy Impact

Kingsbury is publicly backing the 21-year-old rookie quarterback. Rosen struggled mightily at times this year, but the Cardinals might be hesitant to move on after using the 10th pick on him a season ago. Arizona holds the first pick in the 2019 draft and might be looking to trade down if they believe in Rosen and don't want to take a QB.

Josh Rosen throws for 149 yards in Week 17

Josh Rosen completed 18-of-34 pass attempts for 149 yards and a touchdown in Arizona's 27-24 Week 17 loss to Seattle.

Fantasy Impact

Thus ends a brutal rookie season for the 21-year-old signal caller. Rosen finishes the year with an 11/14 TD/INT ratio. He completed just over 55% of his passes. Rosen didn't get much help from his coaching staff but the early returns haven't been encouraging no matter how you slice it up. Rosen will needed a coaching upgrade and receiver help to have fantasy value in 2019.
