The Arizona Cardinals have been on the positive side of headlines during the start of the new NFL year, mostly due to trading for DeAndre Hopkins. However, they have made some other notable acquisitions to improve their team.

Cardinals Win Total 2020

With the offseason improvement of their team, the Cardinals should feel disrespected by their projected 2020 win total. FanDuel Sportsbook currently has them projected for just 7.0 wins this season, with the over/under having -110 odds on either side.

The Cardinals offense got a lot more dangerous this offseason. They should settle into their run-and-gun, college-like identity, which could be tough for defenses to guard. Along with Hopkins, they still have the legend Larry Fitzgerald and a talented young receiver in Christian Kirk.

They are also likely not finished adding weapons to this high-powered offense, with rumors they could also draft CeeDee Lamb with their first-round pick, who would be another explosive weapon and former Oklahoma teammate of Kyler Murray.

Arizona also got better on the defensive side of the ball. They added run-stopper Jordan Phillips, who will be useful against their divisional opponents like the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers. The Cardinals also signed linebackers Devon Kennard and De'Vondre Campbell. If they are able to get a couple more stops per game, this could suddenly become a complete football team and one that nobody will want to face.

With these acquisitions and sky-high potential, the Cardinals and their fans alike should feel disrespected by them projected to finish worse than .500.
