About Brandon Hillman - RotoBaller

Hey Fantasy Community...Brandon here...I would consider myself an avid Dynasty Footballer as I have lost count at the number of teams I currently have. I am married, have two boys, a math teacher, basketball coach, and Chicago Cubs fan (well before they won the series).

Brandon Hillman - RotoBaller has written 31 articles so far, you can find them below.


Chase Edmonds Has One Touch In Week 1

Arizona Cardinals running back Chase Edmonds had only one rush attempt for five yards and missed his lone target in Week 1 against the Lions. The second-year man is nothing more than a backup to veteran David Johnson at this point. With the type of workload that DJ received in the game against the Lions,... Read More

Andy Isabella Shut Out In Week 1

Arizona Cardinals rookie wide receiver Andy Isabella didn't record a single offensive stat in Week 1 against the Lions. The 62nd overall pick in the 2019 draft has yet to make a significant impact. Fellow rookie Keesean Johnson has already made a splash and connection with quarterback Kyler Murray and will continue to see his fair... Read More

Damiere Byrd Catches Four Passes In Week 1

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Damiere Byrd snatched four catches on seven targets while gaining 42 yards in Week 1 against the Lions. Byrd took hold of the opportunity and put in a solid performance. He played behind Larry Fitzgerald, Christian Kirk and Keesean Johnson and will likely remain there, especially if Michael Crabtree returns to the gameday... Read More

KeeSean Johnson Impressive In Week 1

Arizona Cardinals rookie wide receiver Keesean Johnson was able to find himself in the starting lineup against the Detroit Lions, and made every bit count. The rookie saw double-digit targets (10), catching five passes for 46 yards. The fact that fellow rookie quarterback Kyler Murray looked his way so many times is encouraging. Recently signed...

Christian Kirk Mediocre In Tie Against The Lions

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Christian Kirk hauled in only four of his 12 targets for 32 yards in Week 1 against the Lions. Despite the poor conversion rate, it is encouraging to see the volume that Kirk received, as he was second behind Larry Fitzgerald by only one target. The second-year man also converted a...

Larry Fitzgerald Dominates In Week 1

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald didn't miss a beat against the Detroit Lions with eight catches, 113 yards and one touchdown. The veteran was targeted a team-high 13 times in what was a slow start to a highly anticipated game. Throughout the entire game, rookie quarterback Kyler Murray continued to look to Fitzgerald, and the... Read More

David Johnson Of Old Returns

Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson returned to his top-five caliber play against the Detroit Lions. Johnson finished with 137 total yards on 18 rushing attempts while hauling in six of seven targets. DJ had an impressive 27-yard touchdown catch at the end of the fourth quarter to help ignite the Cardinals comeback. The veteran... Read More

Kyler Murray Shakes Off Jitters In Week 1

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray was able to shake off a rough first half and finish strong. The hype was all but dead in the first half, as the rookie posted a quarterback rating of 19.8. The nerves seemed to settle, as he went 29-for-54 for two touchdowns and 308 yards. Some concerns at the... Read More

Michael Crabtree A Healthy Scratch

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Michael Crabtree will not play Sunday against the Detroit Lions. Look for rookies Andy Isabella and Keesean Johnson to see more work as a result. Crabtree signed with the Cardinals less than three weeks ago and more than likely needs more time understanding the playbook as well as getting into shape.... Read More

Michael Crabtree A Shot In The Dark

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Michael Crabtree will look to continue his career with his fourth team this upcoming Sunday. This will be the veteran's 11th season and he will be lined up as the team's No. 3 wide receiver. Crabtree gets a decent matchup, according to Pro Football Focus, but don't expect much at this...

Larry Fitzgerald Set For Week 1

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald looks to lace them up again for his 16th season as the Cardinals take on the Detroit Lions in the regular season opener on Sunday. The question is whether the veteran will be handing over the reigns to second-year man Christian Kirk for No. 1 wide receiver duties. Fitz... Read More

Christian Kirk A Boom-Or-Bust Play

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Christian Kirk will look to improve on his rookie season that included 43 receptions, 590 yards and three touchdowns while missing the final four games. Unfortunately for Kirk, he will draw a tough Week 1 matchup against Darius Slay of the Detroit Lions, who is a tremendous ball hawk. Expect the... Read More

David Johnson Looks To Rebound

Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson looks to improve on a down fantasy year last season. Last year started slow for the veteran and he failed to eclipse the 1,000-yard rushing mark and only reached 100 yards once. All arrows are pointing up for him this season with rookie quarterback Kyler Murray taking the lead.... Read More

The Kyler Murray Show Is Here

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray has a great matchup in his first NFL start against the Detroit Lions. The rookie will be surrounded by proven weapons, but with a subpar offensive line and a top defensive front from the Lions, anticipate Murray feeling some pressure. The Lions struggled against the pass last season and ranked... Read More

Michael Crabtree Listed As Starter

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Michael Crabtree was listed as a starter in three-receiver sets on the team's official depth chart. The veteran is set to start alongside fellow veteran Larry Fitzgerald and second-year man Christian Kirk. This leaves rookies Keesean Johnson and Andy Isabella in backup roles, with Isabella taking on kickoff-return duties. It will be... Read More

Christian Kirk To Return Punts

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Christian Kirk is slated to return punts this year. The second-year man averaged 7.8 yards per return in 2018, placing him 15th overall in average punt return yards per attempt. Kirk is expected to start alongside veteran Larry Fitzgerald in 3-WR sets in what should be a vastly improved offense. The... Read More

Ricky Seals-Jones Released

The Arizona Cardinals released tight end Ricky Seals-Jones. Even with his connection to head coach Kliff Kingsbury, he couldn’t do enough to stay on the roster. Instead, the Cardinals will turn to Charles Clay and Maxx Williams. Look for Arizona to run plenty of four-WR sets in a high-tempo offense this season.

Larry Fitzgerald Poised For 16th Season

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is set and ready to go for another NFL season. The sure-fire hall-of-famer sits atop the Cardinals depth chart at wide receiver in what everyone is anticipating to be an explosive offense. Expect rookies Kyler Murray, Andy Isabella, and Keesean Johnson to benefit and grow from the veteran Fitzgerald.... Read More

Cardinals Defense To Be Fantasy Irrelevant

The Cardinals Defense is projected to be one of the bottom fantasy scorers in the league. The only bright spot last year was that they ranked fifth in sacks. Combine that with top playmakers like Patrick Peterson (six-game suspension), Chandler Jones, Budda Baker, and D.J. Swearinger; the Cardinals might be able to become fantasy relevant... Read More

Cardinals Cut Ties With Chad Williams

The Arizona Cardinals released wide receiver Chad Williams on Friday afternoon. The third-year man just never lived up to expectations as he was sitting behind rookie wide receivers Keesean Johnson and Andy Isabella on the team's depth chart. With the release of Johnson, look for the rookie duo to have some breathing room in regards... Read More

Ricky Seals-Jones Hauls In Two Catches

Arizona Cardinals tight end Ricky Seals-Jones caught both of his targets Thursday night against the Denver Broncos for 43 yards. The third-year man had a big-yardage play of 31 yards and also lost a fumble in the game. Seals-Jones had an unimpressive preseason and will continue to play behind veteran Charles Clay to start the... Read More

KeeSean Johnson Continues To Shine

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Keesean Johnson caught all four passes for 19 yards on Thursday night against the Denver Broncos. This game caps off an impressive preseason for the rookie who had 16 receptions for 156 yards while averaging 9.75-yards per catch. The sixth-round pick has made a strong case for playing time this year... Read More

Cardinals Trade Korey Cunningham

The Arizona Cardinals traded offensive tackle Korey Cunningham to the New England Patriots for a 2020 sixth-round draft pick. Cunningham was a seventh-round pick in 2018 and started in six games.

Kyler Murray Sitting; Brett Hundley Starting

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray will not play in the final preseason game Thursday night against the Broncos. In a news conference earlier in the week, head coach Kliff Kingsbury stated that Brett Hundley will get the start and play a minimum of one quarter. Feel free to pass over Hundley in DFS formats in... Read More

Michael Crabtree Trying To Fit In

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Michael Crabtree, who officially signed with the team this past Sunday, admitted that it is going to take some time to understand the concept of head coach Kliff Kingsbury's offense. The 11-year veteran is coming off a 54-reception, 607 yards, and three-touchdown season last year with the Baltimore Ravens. Once Crabtree... Read More

Hakeem Butler Placed On Injured Reserve

Arizona Cardinals rookie wide receiver Hakeem Butler (finger) was placed on Injured Reserve Sunday afternoon. The rookie receiver will be ineligible to return this season, which ends his rookie campaign. Even if Butler would have remained eligible to play this season, the likelihood of him making an impact was very slim. The fourth-round selection will have... Read More

Charles Clay Sees Only Two Targets

Arizona Cardinals tight end Charles Clay hauled in his two targets for just four yards Saturday against the Vikings. The veteran is sitting atop the tight end depth chart for the Cardinals, but that doesn't mean he will stick there. With fellow tight ends Maxx Williams and Ricky Seals-Jones behind him, there is no telling... Read More

Andy Isabella Underwhelms

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Andy Isabella was quiet Saturday against the Vikings, grabbing only one catch on two targets for eight yards. After the four targets, one catch and 59-yard touchdown last week, this week was a letdown. The rookie is going to have to battle out some of the big names like Larry Fitzgerald, Christian...

Chase Edmonds Plays With A Purpose

Arizona Cardinals running back Chase Edmonds put in a strong performance Saturday afternoon against the Vikings, rushing three times for 13 yards and hauling in both of his two targets for 24 yards.
