Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast Ep.94: Vikings, Browns, Cardinals, and Ravens Review with Dwain McFarland

RSP contributor Dwain McFarland drops by the Matt Waldman RSP Cast for a conversation about our insights from the first three weeks of performances from the Cardinals, Ravens, Browns, and Vikings. 

Every few weeks throughout the season, Dwain McFarland and I will be comparing notes about various teams. This week, we cover the ups and downs of four teams that we reviewed during our summer projection series.

  • Why does Kyler Murray have a deceptively bad pressure rate?
  • Why is the Cardinals’ play volume a stabilizing sign for the offense moving forward?
  • How are defenses adjusting to the Cardinals’ passing game?
  • Will the Arizona ground game improve?
  • Has Lamar Jackson’s perimeter passing game improved?
  • Why is the Ravens’ performance better than its early schedule of opponents?
  • What did we learn from the Chiefs game?
  • Where does Baker Mayfield rank near the bottom of the league as a passer?
  • How are Mayfield’s and this offense’s struggles potentially symptoms of a deeper team-building problem in Cleveland?
  • Where must Mayfield take responsibility for passing game’s performance?
  • How good is the Vikings’ ground game?
  • Why is Kirk Cousins’ taking so much time in the pocket and lacking success?
  • Who is an emerging weapon in the Vikings’ offense?

As always, Dwain and I combine film and data to deliver insights that should help you get a clearer understanding of these teams and how their seasons could unfold. We encourage you to rate and review the podcast. If you prefer to email me, I’m available at

For the most in-depth analysis of offensive skill players available (QB, RB, WR, and TE), pre-order the 2020  Rookie Scouting Portfolio for a discounted price of $19.95 during the early-bird period of Thursday, December 5th through Friday, December 27th.  

If you’re a fantasy owner and interested in purchasing past publications for $9.95 each, the 2012-2019 RSPs also have a Post-Draft Add-on that’s included at no additional charge.  

Best, yet, 10 percent of every sale is set aside until the RSP has reached its annual goal of donating $5,000 Darkness to Light to combat sexual abuse.
