Chase Edmonds Looking Forward To Larger Role
Arizona Cardinals running back Chase Edmonds is making adjustments on the field and trying to put himself in better shape for a larger role in 2019. "I come on that field every day a lot more confident in my abilities," Edmonds said. "Last year was kind of walking on eggshells, and my mentality was more like to not mess up, as opposed to just make big plays." He played the spread offense in college, and is excited by head coach Kliff Kingsbury's new scheme, too. David Johnson will be the bellcow in Arizona, as long as he is healthy, but Edmonds is a player to watch in deeper fantasy leagues, particularly in PPR formats.

Andy Isabella Looking To Make Immediate Splash
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Andy Isabella has received a lot of assistance from the coaching staff during the offseason, looking to improve on his weaknesses as he prepares for his rookie season. "I need to work on my play speed and define my routes more and stuff like that," Isabella said. "Just getting off the ball fast and pushing defenders off their leverage when you're running a stop route instead of just (running fast on a go route), not counting your steps and just playing fast." Isabella was added with the No. 62 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, and he is shaping up to be a decent late-round sleeper.

Christian McCaffrey Hopes Stats Equal More Wins
Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey flirted with becoming just the third player in NFL history with at least 1,000 rushing and 1,000 receiving yards in a single season, but he fell just short with 1,098 rushing yards and 867 receiving yards. He is pleased with the stats, but hopes it translates into more wins. "You have a lot of individual goals, I think everybody does. But you can have a great (statistical) day and, if you don't win, it doesn't matter," McCaffrey said. He enters 2019 as the undisputed No. 1 tailback, and he should be a first-round pick in most fantasy leagues, if not in the discussion for No. 1 overall pick in PPR formats.
