2019 Fantasy Outlook
What a year it's been for Rosen. The 10th pick in last year's draft endured an ugly rookie campaign 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 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. He'll compete with journeyman Ryan Fitzpatrick, though it's safe to assume new coach Brian Flores and new offensive coordinator Chad O'Shea - both former Patriots assistants - will want to get a good look at the young quarterback. But even if he wins the Week 1 job, Rosen will be playing on a rebuilding team with a mediocre wideout group - DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson - as well as a second-year tight end (Mike Gesicki) coming off a quiet rookie season. Still, it's a better situation than Rosen faced last year, and one that should inspire at least a bit of optimism. Read Past Outlooks

Could have future in Miami?

GM Chris Grier said the Dolphins haven't given up on Rosen's development, Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
ANALYSIS
Grier makes a reasonable point about Rosen being held back by coaching changes, including three different offensive coordinators at UCLA and three more through two seasons in the NFL. Even so, teams expect to see a basic level of competence from their players, and Rosen failed to deliver that for both the 2018 Cardinals and 2019 Dolphins. Grier may believe there's still hope for Rosen to succeed in the NFL, but that probably won't stop the GM from using an early draft pick on another quarterback. With Ryan Fitzpatrick under contract through 2020, the Dolphins should at least have some level of discussion about moving on from Rosen.

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.
