Michael Floyd - WRPosted 11/25/15 7:05pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (hamstring) is practicing Wednesday, Nov. 25.
Huddle Up: Floyd sat out Sunday's game after injuring his hammy late in his season-best 7-113-2 outing the previous week, and it's a good sign that he's able to take part in the team's first practice of the week.
John Brown - WRPosted 11/21/15 4:10pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (hamstring) expects to play in Week 11 against the Cincinnati Bengals, although he is frustrated with his nagging hamstring injury. 'I don't feel like the same [player] right now,' Brown said. 'It's frustrating just to sit out of practice, [and] see my time working hard. I want to be with those guys.' Brown has been limited in practice this past week and is listed as questionable.
Huddle Up: Both Brown and Michael Floyd are game-time decisions this week. If Brown can play, he'll be a WR3 against a tough Bengals pass defense.
Michael Floyd - WRPosted 11/20/15 4:58pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WRs Michael Floyd and John Brown are both listed as questionable for Sunday's Week 11 game against the Cincinnati Bengals with hamstring injuries and are expected to be game-time decisions. Floyd has not practiced all week while Brown was limited Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday.
Huddle Up: The major problem for fantasy owners here is the Cards have a second straight Sunday-night kickoff, leaving their lineups in limbo if they wait on either one of the two wideouts. Floyd obviously is more of a question mark than Brown after not practicing all week, and reserve Jaron Brown could be a sneaky play if one or both are absent.
John Brown - WRPosted 11/19/15 9:20am ET
Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (hamstring) continues to deal with a hamstring injury, and head coach Bruce Arians said Wednesday, Nov. 18, that it is possible Brown might be worried about tearing the hamstring if he lets loose.
Huddle Up: Brown has been plagued by the hamstring issue for a couple weeks now; meanwhile, Michael Floyd has zoomed past him in the passing game pecking order. Fantasy owners have been forced to play "wait and see" with Brown on a weekly basis, and his production has yet to be worth the wait.
Michael Floyd - WRPosted 11/19/15 3:33pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (hamstring) is sitting out of practice again Thursday, Nov. 19, as he deals with a hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: Floyd has been among fantasy's hottest wideouts with 19 receptions for 328 yards and five TDs over his last four games, but his status for Sunday night's game against the Bengals will be in serious doubt unless he's able to show some progress Friday.
Mike Iupati - OGPosted 11/18/15 10:09am ET
Arizona Cardinals OG Mike Iupati (neck) has been cleared for the Week 11 game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Head coach Bruce Arians said Iupati suffered a double stinger.
Huddle Up: After the scary sight of Iupati being placed on a backboard and taken from the field in an ambulance, it's great news that he's been cleared to return. The Arizona ground game is thrilled as well.
Michael Floyd - WRPosted 11/18/15 5:27pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (hamstring) and WR John Brown (hamstring) were out of practice Wednesday, Nov. 18.
Huddle Up: Not a real surprise as it's the first practice of the week, and we should know more over the coming days.
John Brown - WRPosted 11/16/15 9:19am ET
Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (hamstring) was targeted three times in the Week 10 game against the Seattle Seahawks, but he did not have any receptions.
Huddle Up: The combination of a tough matchup, Michael Floyd's re-emergence and Brown's ongoing hamstring issues have conspired to make him an afterthought in the Arizona passing game as well as torpedoed his fantasy value.
Michael Floyd - WRPosted 11/16/15 9:19am ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (hamstring) left the Week 10 game against the Seattle Seahawks in the fourth quarter due to a hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: Floyd was kind enough to score a couple touchdowns before exiting the game. With John Brown also nursing a hamstring injury, we'll need to keep an eye on the Cardinals' receiving corps and their availability going forward.
John Brown - WRPosted 11/14/15 2:48pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (hamstring) is expected to be a game-time decision for the Week 10 game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Brown already has a tough matchup and now he's a game-time decision. Brown will be a low-end WR3 this week at best if he does suit up.
John Brown - WRPosted 11/13/15 12:09am ET
Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 12.
Huddle Up: The speedy Brown hasn't played since Week 7 and has been limited in both of the team's practices this week coming off the bye. We should definitely learn more about his status following practice Friday.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 11/13/15 8:14pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 13, and is listed as probable for the Week 10 game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald will be a low-end WR2 this week in a tough matchup against the Seahawks.
John Brown - WRPosted 11/13/15 8:14pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 13, and is listed as questionable for the Week 10 game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Brown will be a game-time decision this week. The Cardinals play Seattle in the late game, so fantasy owners will have to either play different receiver or have another option ready to go in case Brown is inactive.
Carson Palmer - QBPosted 11/4/15 12:07am ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer leads the NFL with a QBR of 85 and is tied for the most touchdown passes with New England Patriots QB Tom Brady with 20 on the year. No Cardinals quarterback has ever thrown more than 30 touchdowns in a single season.
Huddle Up: Congrats to the the fantasy GMs who bet on Palmer's strong six-game showing (1,626 yards, 11 TDs, 3 interceptions) last season who carry over into 2015, and now they own fantasy's third-ranked QB (201 points). Tougher matchups lie ahead with two games against the Seahawks and contests against the Bengals, Rams and Packers, but he should easily continue to produce at a high-QB1 level provided the soon-to-be 36-year-old can stay relatively healthy.
John Brown - WRPosted 11/2/15 11:08pm ET
Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (hamstring) was active in Week 8 against the Cleveland Browns in an emergency, but he never saw any time on the field. Brown said the Week 9 bye week will allow him to get back to 100 percent. 'At times when we were down, I thought he was going to call me,' Brown said. 'I was prepared. I was riding that bike because I thought he was going to give me that call.'
Huddle Up: It was quite the unfortunate but largely unpreventable turn of events for Brown's fantasy owners as the speedy wideout was coming off three straight double-digit fantasy-point games. Better days will come after the bye.
Troy Niklas - TEPosted 11/2/15 11:09pm ET
Arizona Cardinals TE Troy Niklas, who had two catches for 12 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 8 win over the Cleveland Browns, has been seeing more playing time with TE Darren Fells (shoulder) injured. However, most of Niklas' time on the field has been used as a blocker.
Huddle Up: Don't read much of anything into Sunday's game fantasy-wise as Niklas entered the contest with only one catch for 13 yards. Jermaine Gresham, with six catches for 81 yards over the last two games, actually has been the Arizona TE seeing the most action of late but he's not a reliable fantasy commodity, either.
Andre Ellington - RBPosted 10/31/15 2:44pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington is expected to have a bigger role in the offense in the Week 8 game against the Cleveland Browns, according to head coach Bruce Arians. Ellington was on the field for 18 offensive snaps in Week 7.
Huddle Up: Ellington will continue to be worked in behind Chris Johnson. Expect Ellington to be a bigger part of the passing game in the coming weeks. He could ultimately become a Flex option in PPR formats.
John Brown - WRPosted 10/29/15 10:11am ET
Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (hamstring) had a specialist fly in from Miami to help him with his hamstring Sunday, Oct. 25. Brown used this treatment in college as well.
Huddle Up: Whatever keeps Brown's hammy happy and the Cardinals' wideout on the field is fine by fantasy owners.
John Brown - WRPosted 10/29/15 7:23pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (hamstring) and TE Darren Fells (shoulder) both missed practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 29.
Huddle Up: Coming off a Monday night in which he played despite hammy issues, Brown has been unable to give it go the last two days and there is talk that the Cards just might decide to rest him Sunday and give him extra time to recharge with the team's bye week arriving in Week 9.
Michael Floyd - WRPosted 10/27/15 12:49pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd posted three receptions for 59 yards and a touchdown in the Week 7 game against the Baltimore Ravens Monday, Oct. 26. He was targeted four times.
Huddle Up: That's two TD catches in two weeks for Floyd, who also as totaled eight receptions for 159 yards over the last two weeks following his slow start. And playing for the high-scoring Cards, he's definitely a WR to target on waivers this week.
Chris Johnson - RBPosted 10/27/15 12:49pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson rushed 18 times for 122 yards and a touchdown in the Week 7 game against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday, Oct. 26. He was not targeted once in the passing game.
Huddle Up: Don't look now but the once-thought-of fill-in starter is second in the league in rushing with 567 yards on 111 carries. He's totaled at least 94 yards in each of his last five games with three TDs and should be regarded as a no-doubt fantasy starter until proven otherwise.
John Brown - WRPosted 10/26/15 8:00pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (hamstring) is officially active for the Week 7 game against the Baltimore Ravens Monday, Oct. 26.
Huddle Up: The extra day between games no doubt helped Brown, who has been on a tear nof late, recording 21 receptions for 344 yards and a TD over his last three games.
John Brown - WRPosted 10/24/15 12:32pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (hamstring) said he will be able to play in the Week 7 game against the Baltimore Ravens Monday, Oct. 26.
Huddle Up: Brown has a great matchup against an awful Ravens' pass defense but playing on Monday night makes him a risky start. If you decide to start Brown, make sure you have another option ready.
Chris Johnson - RBPosted 10/10/15 9:15pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (knee) said he will be part of a rotation at running back with RB Chris Johnson and RB David Johnson when he returns against the Detroit Lions in Week 5, and Ellington said he feels good about the situation.
Huddle Up: David Johnson appears to be the odd man out with Ellington coming back. Chris Johnson should continue to see the early down work with Ellington being mixed in on passing downs.
Chris Johnson - RBPosted 10/8/15 9:19am ET
Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson will lose playing time with RB Andre Ellington (knee) on the mend. RB Chris Johnson figures to be the featured back with Ellington behind him. 'It's not hard, because the young guy (David Johnson) sits down,' head coach Bruce Arians said.
Huddle Up: David Johnson's playing time had been steadily on the rise during Ellington's absence, but Chris Johnson has played well also. Look for the rookie's touches to be reduced, at least until Ellington's next injury.
Andre Ellington - RBPosted 10/7/15 12:58am ET
Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (knee) is expected to play in the Week 5 game against the Detroit Lions, head coach Bruce Arians said in a satellite radio interview Tuesday, Oct. 6.
Huddle Up: Ellington was close to returning in Week 4 and should get over the hump and play for the first time since getting injured in the season opener. That's not good news for those who have been starting Chris Johnson, who's averaged 20.6 touches per game during Ellington's absence. In Week 1, Ellington had 13 touches, Johnson 10 and rookie David Johnson only one.
Andre Ellington - RBPosted 10/1/15 10:49pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 1.
Huddle Up: The plan was for Ellington to take it easy in practice most or even all of the week, and he still would seem to be on track to make his return Sunday against the Rams. Check back Friday for any updates.
Michael Floyd - WRPosted 9/30/15 8:26am ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd was barely involved in the offense in Week 3. However, head coach Bruce Arians said the team tried 'to get him going', and he should have a bigger role moving forward.
Huddle Up: With Larry Fitzgerald playing like the Larry Fitzgerald of old and John Brown coming on there isn't as much of a need to get Floyd going. However, if doing so is going to be a focus for Arizona you may need to dial back expectations for both Brown and Fitz going forward.
Chris Johnson - RBPosted 9/30/15 8:26am ET
Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson will remain as a '15-20 touch' player, even with RB Andre Ellington (knee) set to return in Week 4, head coach Bruce Arians said Tuesday, Sept. 29.
Huddle Up: Ellington is best served in a limited touches role, so Johnson continuing to be featured should help the Cardinals keep all their weapons on the field. It's not ideal for Ellington's fantasy value, however, nor is it fair to rookie David Johnson, who has been electric every time he touches the ball and has earned a larger share as well.
Carson Palmer - QBPosted 9/29/15 7:54pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer and the Arizona offense are tied for the fourth-most points scored through three games (126) in NFL history.
Huddle Up: The Cards and Palmer naysayers -- in fantasy and reality -- are running out of ammo with each TD pass from the 35-year-old QB and each win by the undefeated Birds. Palmer is currently ranked sixth among fantasy QBs and, barring injury, looks like he's there to say with the Cards' offense and his talented cast of weapons, headlined by the rejuvenated Larry Fitzgerald. Keep rolling with Palmer or use him as a trade chip to try to improve your team if you have another top QB.
