• Larry Fitzgerald - WR
    Posted 1/18/17 5:49pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald finished the 2016 season with 107 receptions, which was the most in the NFL.

    Huddle Up: Fitzgerald has finished each of the last two seasons with at least 100 catches and has accomplished the feat four times in his career. He may consider retirement this offseason, so owners will need to monitor his situation. Fitzgerald can be considered a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues if he decides to play in 2017.

    Posted 1/14/17 8:05pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald hasn't committed to playing in 2017, and head coach Bruce Arians said he won't try to convince Fitzgerald to return because the decision to play should be his call.

    Huddle Up: Fitzgerald led the NFL with 107 catches this season, so there is no question he can still produce. If he returns, he is a WR2 candidate with added value in PPR formats.

  • Carson Palmer - QB
    Posted 1/8/17 4:23pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer threw 16 touchdowns and four interceptions in the eight games when he was sacked fewer than three times, and he threw 10 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in the eight games when he was sacked three times or more.

    Huddle Up: When Palmer is kept upright, he can still sling it with the best of them, but consistency will likely remain an issue. He can be a QB1 when the matchups are right, but he should be drafted as a fantasy backup.

    Posted 1/8/17 4:32pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer is under contract through 2018, but head coach Bruce Arians said in his postseason news conference that the team needs to find a successor for Palmer.

    Huddle Up: Even if the Cardinals spend an early pick on a quarterback, Palmer should still be running the show in 2017, and he can be trusted as a quality QB2.

  • David Johnson - RB
    Posted 1/4/17 3:39pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson set single-season franchise records in scrimmage yards (2,118), rushing touchdowns (16) and total touchdowns (20) in 2016.

    Huddle Up: Despite Arizona's lack of success this season, Johnson is a legitimate MVP candidate. His rise to the top of the fantasy elite was swift, starting in his rookie season last year. There is no fault in selecting him as the first player in fantasy drafts next season.

  • David Johnson - RB
    Posted 1/2/17 10:34am ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (knee) has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL and will not require surgery. He will sit out the Pro Bowl but is only expected to need six to eight weeks of rehab.

    Huddle Up: It is shocking Johnson escaped with a relatively minor injury, as it appeared he was staring at a blown-out knee or broken leg initially. The Cardinals will need to find a way to back off his workload somewhat moving forward (373 touches in 2016 despite leaving early in Week 17), but his 2017 redraft outlook is still very bright. Along with Le'Veon Bell, Johnson should be in the running for the top overall pick in fantasy next summer.

    Posted 1/1/17 2:00pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (knee) was carted off the field after suffering a knee injury during the team's Week 17 game.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see the severity of Johnson's injury. Johnson will have the entire offseason to recover from the injury and may be ready for training camp if it is not too severe. Johnson should be in the conversation for the No. 1 pick in fantasy drafts and will be a top-five pick in all leagues.

  • David Johnson - RB
    Posted 1/1/17 4:26pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (knee) had initial tests on his injured knee Sunday, Jan. 1. The tests revealed meniscus damage, but his anterior cruciate ligament remained intact, according to a source. Johnson will have an MRI for further clarity Monday, Jan. 2.

    Huddle Up: Johnson's injury looked awful initially, but this is great news for Johnson and those in keeper fantasy leagues, too. Johnson figures to be either the No. 1 or 2 pick in all fantasy leagues in 2017, and now that it appears he dodged an ACL injury that plan is still in effect.

  • Carson Palmer - QB
    Posted 12/30/16 3:07pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 30, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Palmer has been playing better recently with eight touchdowns in the last four games and has two 300-yard games in that span. He will be facing a decent Los Angeles Rams defense but can still be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR
    Posted 12/30/16 3:11pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 30, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Fitzgerald has been receiving plenty of targets over the past month but has been held to 31 yards or less in two of the last three games. He has also gone 10 games without a touchdown, which has hurt his fantasy value. Fitzgerald can still be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option because of his role in the passing game.

  • John Brown - WR
    Posted 12/29/16 7:25pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (illness) returned to practice and was a limited participant Thursday, Dec. 29.

    Huddle Up: Brown has been streaky all year, and he will continue to be an all-or-nothing flex option against the Rams in Week 17.

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR
    Posted 12/29/16 7:37pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (non-injury) returned to practice and was a full participant Thursday, Dec. 29.

    Huddle Up: Fitzgerald's production has slipped in recent weeks, but the targets are still there. He could easily be a WR3 against the Rams in Week 17.

  • Carson Palmer - QB
    Posted 12/29/16 7:28pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (non-injury) returned to practice and was a full participant Thursday, Dec. 29.

    Huddle Up: Palmer has played better down the stretch, and a friendly matchup against the Rams makes him a QB1 candidate in Week 17.

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR
    Posted 12/28/16 5:48pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 28.

    Huddle Up: Fitzgerald has been fairly quiet over the last few weeks and has been held to 31 yards or less in two of his last three games. He has been targeted at least nine times in three of the last four games and can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in leagues.

  • Carson Palmer - QB
    Posted 12/28/16 5:43pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 28.

    Huddle Up: Palmer has received Wednesdays off for most of the season and should be able to play in Week 17. He has played well over the last two games with 602 yards and three touchdowns. Palmer can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in leagues because of the matchup.

  • John Brown - WR
    Posted 12/24/16 12:10pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (illness) is active for the Week 16 game against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Brown has been battling an illness and is only worth using in the deepest of fantasy leagues.

  • David Johnson - RB
    Posted 12/24/16 4:37pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson became the first player in franchise history to surpass 2,000 yards from scrimmage in one season in the Week 16 game against the Seattle Seahawks. He also posted a new franchise mark with his 15th rushing touchdown of the season.

    Huddle Up: Johnson managed 28 runs for 95 yards and three touchdowns, while adding four receptions for 41 yards on seven targets. If he wasn't the fantasy MVP this season, he is definitely in the Top 3. He'll be in the discussion for top overall pick in 2017, along with Pittsburgh's Le'Veon Bell.

  • JJ Nelson - WR
    Posted 12/24/16 5:56pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson posted three receptions for 132 yards and a touchdown in the Week 16 game against the Seattle Seahawks. He was targeted seven times.

    Huddle Up: Nelson scored a receiving touchdown for the fourth consecutive game, and he has five touchdowns total during the span. He has emerged as a solid WR3 in fantasy leagues down the stretch.

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR
    Posted 12/24/16 5:55pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald posted four receptions for 31 yards on his four targets in the Week 16 game against the Seattle Seahawks. He has back-to-back seasons with 100 or more catches for the first time in his career, and he has reached the mark four times in his career.

    Huddle Up: Fitzgerald needs 20 yards in Week 17 to go over 1,000 yards for the eighth time in his career. He will face the Los Angeles Rams on the road in the regular season finale.

  • Carson Palmer - QB
    Posted 12/24/16 5:03pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer completed 16 of his 26 pass attempts for 284 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 16 game against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Palmer had a five-game multi-TD streak snapped. He managed just one touchdown pass in two starts against Seattle in 2016. Over his past six starts against Seattle he has seven TDs and eight INTs.

  • John Brown - WR
    Posted 12/23/16 1:31pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (illness) was limited in practice for the third straight day Friday, Dec. 23, and is being listed as questionable for the team's Week 16 game versus the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Brown is coming off his first notable performance in weeks, thanks to an uptick in snaps, but even so, it's hard to trust him as anything more than a WR4 with fantasy championships at stake. Only owners in deeper formats should consider deploying him this weekend.

  • John Brown - WR
    Posted 12/22/16 6:28pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (illness) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 22.

    Huddle Up: Brown has been an all-or-nothing option all season, and he should be avoided in Week 16 with a tough matchup with Seattle on tap.

  • Carson Palmer - QB
    Posted 12/18/16 7:55pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer said after the Week 15 game against the New Orleans Saints that he hasn't thought about the 2017 season, but he is likely to continue his NFL career. 'Haven't thought about next year, but I expect to play in 2017,' he said Sunday, Dec. 18.

    Huddle Up: Palmer passed for 318 yards and two touchdowns in a shootout with Drew Brees and the Saints in Week 15. He remains a solid low-end QB1 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 16.

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR
    Posted 12/18/16 7:54pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald was uncertain about whether he wants to return and play in the 2017 season. 'We'll see what's going on this offseason?but right now my attention is solely focused on Seattle Saturday,' he said Sunday, Dec. 18.

    Huddle Up: Fitzgerald is still playing at a high level and he has been a strong fantasy option more often than not. He had seven receptions for 57 yards on nine targets in Week 15.

  • JJ Nelson - WR
    Posted 12/18/16 9:56pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (knee) posted five receptions for 38 yards and a touchdown in the Week 15 game against the New Orleans Saints and he was targeted a team-high 11 times.

    Huddle Up: Nelson didn't seem to show any ill-effects of the knee injury which landed him on the injury report this week. He has receiving touchdowns in three straight games and a total of four scores during the span. He is a solid WR4 in all fantasy leagues moving forward.

  • John Brown - WR
    Posted 12/18/16 9:56pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown posted five receptions for a team-high 81 yards and a score in the Week 15 game against the New Orleans Saints. He was targeted six times.

    Huddle Up: Brown was not even targeted last week in Miami and he had just one target over the past two games as he dealt with an illness. He appears to be back, as the touchdown was his first in six games and the yardage total was his highest since Week 4 against the Los Angeles Rams. The sudden release of Michael Floyd should led to a bigger role for Brown down the stretch.

  • David Johnson - RB
    Posted 12/18/16 9:55pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson rushed 12 times for 53 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 15 game against the New Orleans Saints. He also added four receptions for 55 yards on five targets.

    Huddle Up: Johnson hasn't had a 100-yard game in four outings, but he has scored three rushing touchdowns and two receiving scores during the span. He obviously remains a must-start fantasy option in all leagues despite the decrease in rushing yardage since he has four or more grabs in eight straight games and at least 41 receiving yards in each game during the span.

  • David Johnson - RB
    Posted 12/17/16 6:33pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson has tallied at least 100 yards from scrimmage in each of the first 13 games of the season, tying the NFL record.

    Huddle Up: Johnson is the definition of a do-it-all back, and he has a chance to finish with more than 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards. His versatility makes him matchup proof and an elite RB1 on a weekly basis.

  • John Brown - WR
    Posted 12/16/16 7:53pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (illness) was a limited participant in practice Friday, Dec. 16, and is listed as questionable for Week 15.

  • Jermaine Gresham - TE
    Posted 12/16/16 7:49pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals TE Jermaine Gresham (knee) was a limited participant in practice Friday, Dec. 16, and is listed as questionable for Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Gresham has 15 catches on 23 targets over his last three games, and he could sneak into TE1 territory in deeper PPR formats against a vulnerable Saints defense in Week 15.
