David Johnson - RBPosted 5/17/18 7:54am ET
Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) said his wrist feels great, and he's aiming for 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards.
Huddle Up: The team will be deploying a fullback this year, which will give him an added layer of protection. They'll have to prove that they can move the ball downfield to keep defenses honest, though. Sam Bradford throws a ton of short passes, and DJ should be an RB1 as long as he's healthy.
Christian Kirk - WRPosted 5/14/18 4:14pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk was arrested in February and charged with criminal damage for allegedly throwing rocks at cars while intoxicated. The case is pending and a Cardinals spokesman said the team is aware of the incident and spoke with Kirk at length about it. 'Our understanding is that the process will be resolved in the near future, but while it remains an active legal matter, we won't comment further.
Huddle Up: A severe punishment is unlikely for Kirk. Arizona knew Kirk had been arrested when they drafted him, so they obviously weren't scared off enough to not draft him. Kirk can be one of the more impactful rookies in this year's class, but he's not deserving of being drafted as better than a WR4 in PPR leagues.
Josh Rosen - QBPosted 5/11/18 6:54pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen settled down after showing some early nerves during the first day of rookie minicamp Friday, May 11, according to head coach Steve Wilks, and Wilks said Rosen is already showing an understanding of the playbook. 'The guy is extremely smart,' Wilks said.
Huddle Up: With the fragile Sam Bradford ahead of him on the depth chart, Rosen could have a chance to start as soon as this season. He doesn't need to be selected in redraft leagues at this point, but he should be owned in dynasty formats.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 5/11/18 7:25pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Sam Bradford is the starting quarterback, head coach Steve Wilks said Friday, May 11, but Wilks added that he wouldn't hold back QB Josh Rosen.
Huddle Up: Wilks simply reiterated what he said when the Cardinals drafted Rosen. Bradford will likely open the year as the starter, and he can be a solid QB2 as long as he is healthy and running the show. Rosen's value is limited to dynasty formats for now.
Josh Rosen - QBPosted 5/10/18 6:23pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen signed a four-year deal worth $17.84 million with an $11 million signing bonus Thursday, May 10.
Huddle Up: Rosen will likely be the backup to open the year, but with Sam Braford's injury history, it wouldn't be a shock to see Rosen make some starts before the end of the year. For now, Rosen's value is limited to keep formats.
Ricky Seals-Jones - TEPosted 5/3/18 6:19pm ET
Arizona Cardinals TE Ricky Seals-Jones said he likes the new system offensive coordinator Mike McCoy has installed, and Mike Jurecki of Fox Sports Radio 910 expects Seals-Jones to have an expanded role in 2018.
Huddle Up: A converted wide receiver, Seals-Jones flashed some upside in the second half of last season. He's worth a flier as a TE2.
Chase Edmonds - RBPosted 4/28/18 10:43am ET
The Arizona Cardinals selected Fordham RB Chase Edmonds with the 134th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Saturday, April 28.
Huddle Up: Edmonds likely will not receive a lot of touches as long as David Johnson is healthy. He likely will not have much fantasy value as a rookie.
Josh Rosen - QBPosted 4/26/18 6:14pm ET
The Arizona Cardinals selected UCLA QB Josh Rosen with the 10th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Thursday, April 26.
Huddle Up: The Cardinals signed Sam Bradford during free agency but with his injury history, Rosen may see some playing time in 2018. He probably can be avoided in most standard leagues but should be a popular pick in keeper leagues.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 4/26/18 10:43pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Sam Bradford remains the team's projected Week 1 starter ahead of first-round pick QB Josh Rosen, according to head coach Steve Wilks, though he indicated that could change.
Huddle Up: Whoever lines up in Week 1, Bradford is most assuredly a bridge QB now, effectively keeping the spot warm for Rosen. How long that will be the arrangement is unclear, but Rosen's selection drains any fantasy value Bradford might've had.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 4/19/18 1:21pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Sam Bradford (knee) is not having any problems with his knee and has been limited during offseason workouts because there is no reason to rush things in April, according to head coach Steve Wilks.
Huddle Up: Bradford probably will wait until training camp before he is a full participant in practices. He has had some success during his career but has dealt with many injuries since entering the NFL. He probably can be considered a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 4/11/18 3:30pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson said he believes the Cardinals can have the top offense in the NFL in 2018 if QB Sam Bradford can stay healthy.
Huddle Up: Johnson should be ready for the start of the 2018 season and will be a big part of the running and passing game. He likely will be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues. Bradford has struggled with injuries during his entire career and should only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.
David Johnson - RBPosted 4/2/18 11:35pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) has officially been medically cleared and will not be limited when the club begins their offseason program.
Huddle Up: Johnson missed all but one game a year ago but it looks like he'll be ready to roll at full health going into the new campaign. Considering his tremendous second season when he totaled 20 touchdowns, rushed for 1,239 yards on 293 carries and accumulated 879 more yards through the air on 80 catches, Johnson still merits a very early pick in fantasy drafts.
David Johnson - RBPosted 3/27/18 5:15am ET
Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) is expected to be cleared in time for organized team activities next month, according to head coach Steve Wilks.
Huddle Up: Johnson will be returning to a different situation with a new head coach and Sam Bradford, who is always hurt, under center. The latter could be good for Johnson because Bradford does a lot of dink-and-dunk passing, which could bring DJ back to a high-end RB1 quickly in PPR formats.
Drew Stanton - QBPosted 3/25/18 5:20pm ET
Free-agent QB Drew Stanton (Cardinals) signed a two-year contract with the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, March 25. No financial details were disclosed.
Huddle Up: Stanton has little fantasy value unless Tyrod Taylor proves ineffective or is injured, but he will bring a veteran clubhouse presence to a team that was lost in 2017.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 3/16/18 7:05pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Sam Bradford (knee) said his knee is feeling strong despite all the injuries during his career. 'I've been through a lot with it, but all I can tell you is how I feel right now and really where it's gone since I had the procedure in November,' Bradford said. 'It's done nothing but get better and I feel good at the moment.'
Huddle Up: Bradford will have some weapons to work with in Arizona, but his health is a major concern. Grab him as a QB2 and hope he can last the season.
Jaron Brown - WRPosted 3/16/18 8:28pm ET
Free-agent WR Jaron Brown (Cardinals) has agreed to terms with the Seattle Seahawks Friday, March 16, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Seattle lost Jimmy Graham and Paul Richardson in free agency, but even with Seattle turning the offense over to Russell Wilson, Brown figures to be a bench option for fantasy owners.
Adrian Peterson - RBPosted 3/13/18 2:11pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson was officially released Tuesday, March 13.
Huddle Up: Peterson gave the Cardinals some quality games, but he'll turn 33 years old next week and is comfortably over the hill in running back years. He may yet play a complementary role somewhere else, but he is merely a faint blip on the fantasy radar at this point in his storied career.
John Brown - WRPosted 3/13/18 2:26pm ET
Free-agent WR John Brown (Cardinals) is in serious negotiations with the Baltimore Ravens, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Mike Wallace and Michael Campanaro are both impending free agents, so the Ravens could be due for more depth at the wide receiver position. Brown's deep-threat ability coupled with Joe Flacco's arm strength is an intriguing proposition, but Brown's healthy history makes him a wary fantasy prospect.
John Brown - WRPosted 3/13/18 4:07pm ET
Arizona Cardinals impending free-agent WR John Brown plans to sign with the Baltimore Ravens, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Brown has dealt with health problems over the last few seasons but can be a deep threat when healthy. He could be a late-round pick in fantasy drafts but will not be a weekly starting option.
Adrian Peterson - RBPosted 3/12/18 5:07am ET
Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson is expected to be released Monday, March 12, according to a source. He is due a $750,000 bonus on the third day of the league year. He could still return to Arizona later.
Huddle Up: Peterson's fantasy value is pretty murky right now. If he returns to Arizona, he'd be an RB4 for depth.
Adrian Peterson - RBPosted 3/12/18 10:45pm ET
Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Cardinals) said the Arizona Cardinals doctor told him that his neck is 'completely healed' after reviewing scans and that he is 'still looking forward to playing next season.'
Huddle Up: Peterson's tenure with the Saints at the onset of the 2017 season turned out to be a huge flop, though that was more so because they had Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram carrying the load. When AP arrived in Arizona, he was decent and exhibited flashes of his old self, so perhaps there is still something left in the tank. Of course, that hinges on just where he ends up next.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 2/15/18 7:00am ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald announced Thursday, Feb. 15, that he'll return for the 2018 season.
Huddle Up: He'll be 35 in August, but he has continued to be a dangerous possession receiver the last few years. He has averaged 108 grabs for 1,131 yards and seven scores per season the last three years. There are questions about who will throw to him, but he has remained consistent despite that. Look at him as a high-end WR2 in fantasy.
Drew Stanton - QBPosted 2/13/18 11:58am ET
Arizona Cardinals QBs Blaine Gabbert and Drew Stanton will likely be competing with another quarterback this offseason for the starting quarterback job. Team owner Michael Bidwill said the Cardinals will be aggressive in their search for a new starting quarterback following the retirement of QB Carson Palmer.
Huddle Up: Gabbert and Stanton fall far from the elite quarterback tree. Whether it's through free agency or the draft, Arizona will address the position this offseason. Odds are, though, that whoever starts will not be a reliable starting fantasy quarterback.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 2/12/18 11:35pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald's $11 million salary became guaranteed on Friday, Feb. 9. However, this does not impact his retirement decision. If he chooses to retire, he would not receive that money.
Huddle Up: A decision from Fitzgerald is expected before the end of the month. If he indeed returns, he'll remain a WR2 going into next season, though there's a decent possibility he sees his numbers drop based on some significant changes in Arizona. Fitzgerald will have a new starting quarterback throwing to him -- a position still not filled -- while also playing under a new head coach that could bring out all sorts of variables.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 2/9/18 11:08am ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald's $11 million base salary for 2018 will be guaranteed if he is remains on the roster Friday, Feb. 9. Fitzgerald still has not decided if he will play next season or retire.
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald said during Super Bowl week that he would decide on his future in a week or two, so owners should monitor the situation over the next few days. He would still be a solid fantasy receiver in all leagues if he continues playing.
Carson Palmer - QBPosted 2/7/18 5:15pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer was placed on the Reserve/Retired list Monday, Feb. 5.
Huddle Up: The Cardinals will be looking for a new starting quarterback this offseason and probably will acquire a veteran in free agency or a trade. Owners should keep an eye on the situation because their quarterback has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some leagues.
David Johnson - RBPosted 2/7/18 9:24pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) has been fully cleared to resume all football-related activities.
Huddle Up: No one had it worse in 2017 than owners of David Johnson, who was lost for the year in only the third quarter of the first game of the NFL campaign. Fortunately, he'll at least be 100 percent for the start of next season. The only thing is that the offense Johnson will be playing for appears murky right now -- the Cardinals have a new head coach and it remains to be seen who will start under center for them in 2018.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 2/4/18 11:50am ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald said he expects to decide on his playing future in the next week or two.
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald posted solid numbers in 2017 but probably would be working with a new quarterback if he decides to return next season. He would still be a solid fantasy option if he continues his playing career and can be at least a No. 3 receiver for owners.
Adrian Peterson - RBPosted 2/3/18 10:21am ET
Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson will turn 33 years old in March, but he recently told the St. Paul Pioneer Press' Chris Tomasson he wants at least four more years.
Huddle Up: Peterson is a physical marvel and was able to carry the Arizona offense on his shoulders on occasion after he was traded from the New Orleans Saints, but any running back wanting to play into his mid-30s is living on borrowed time. Injuries are also a major concern. The Cardinals are expected to release Peterson, meaning he'll need to learn his third offense in about a year if he plays in 2018. While it is never wise to bet against him, Peterson is nearing the end of the line as a useful fantasy option.
Jaron Brown - WRPosted 1/31/18 10:50am ET
Arizona Cardinals impending free-agent WR Jaron Brown (knee) is not expected to be re-signed. Arizona sports radio host Mike Jurecki believes Brown is due for a big payday assuming he hits the market.
Huddle Up: Brown has been overshadowed by Larry Fitzgerald and John Brown in his time in Arizona. He is coming off a career year, though, tallying 477 yards and four touchdowns. He's not much more than a deep threat, but he has shown he can be fantasy relevant. He could be much more relevant on the right team.
