2019 Fantasy Outlook
What a year it's been for Rosen. The 10th pick in last year's draft endured an forgettable rookie season and then watched Arizona's first-year coaching staff get flushed at season's end. By draft day this year, Rosen was out too, as the Cardinals' new regime decided to make No. 1 pick Kyler Murray its new quarterback of the future. Rosen's 2018 never really had a shot with a bad offensive system, few playmakers and an often overwhelmed offensive line. Pick a stat and chances are Rosen finished last in the league - YPA, TD percentage, TD/INT ratio, passer rating, et al. It didn't help that Rosen was sacked 45 times in 14 games, his lack of pocket awareness responsible for some of that pressure. Now in Miami, Rosen basically gets a do-over to start his career. He'll compete with journeyman Ryan Fitzpatrick, though it's doubtful new head coach Brian Flores and new offensive coordinator Chad O'Shea, both former Patriots assistants, won't go with what the team hopes is the franchise quarterback. But even if he wins the Week 1 job, Rosen is still dealing with a mediocre wideout group in DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson on a rebuilding team. Still, it's a better situation than he faced last season, and one that should inspire at least a bit of optimism. Read Past Outlooks

April 26, 2019
Rosen was traded to the Dolphins on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
It was clear from the time Arizona picked Kyler Murray at No.1 overall that Rosen's time with the Cardinals was nearing an end. The only question was what Arizona's asking price would be. The Dolphins were able to maneuver around in the second round and ultimately got their quarterback of the future by shipping the 62nd pick to the Cardinals. As for Rosen, he gets to start anew after a disastrous rookie season where he was surrounded by lackluster talent in a clunky system. Rosen now gets to compete with Ryan Fitzpatrick in Miami and figures to take over the starting job at some point in 2019.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
The 10th overall pick in this year's draft, Rosen will compete in training camp with Sam Bradford for the starting job. He likely won't win it, but Rosen is at least in a good situation. Bradford is injury prone and clearly just a placeholder until the rookie is ready. Plus, new offensive coordinator Mike McCoy has a long history of playing to his quarterback's strength, which for Bradford likely means high-percentage throws in lieu of attacking downfield with his average-at-best arm. That should work for Rosen, as well. While scouts praised his footwork, mechanics and ability to quickly process information at the line, they also questioned his arm strength. When the Cardinals do make Rosen the starter, he should jump in without altering the passing game much. Expect a lot of short and intermediate throws that take advantage of Rosen's accuracy and allow the offense's two proven playmakers - David Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald - to gobble up yards after the catch. Getting rid of the ball quickly will also help protect Rosen from an offensive line that allowed 52 sacks last year, though the team made modest upgrades.
