Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim was noncommittal about whether RB David Johnson would return to the team for the 2020 season. 'Those are the kind of conversations that will certainly be held internally,' Keim said in a radio interview on the 'Doug and Wolf' show on 98.7 FM Friday, Dec. 13. ' ... We'll take a deep dive into this roster and take a look at every guy.'
Huddle Up: Johnson is under contract for two more years with a lot of guaranteed money and has had an injury-filled, underwhelming season, so it will be difficult for the Cardinals to move him during the offseason. Since being acquired from the Dolphins before the trade deadline, Kenyan Drake has received the bulk of the carries in the Arizona backfield, severely limiting Johnson's fantasy value, although Drake hasn't done much since his Week 9 debut either. For now, Johnson owners can stash him on the bench in most fantasy formats based on lack of production and reduced playing time.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Kirk has been the main option in the passing game for the Cardinals for most of the season and should receive a solid amount of targets this week. He can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald will see a solid amount of targets this week against the Cleveland Browns and could be a flex option in deeper leagues.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 12.
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald has been a solid option in the passing game over the last month and should see a handful of targets this week. He could be a possible flex option in deeper leagues.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 12.
Huddle Up: Kirk should have a decent chance to play in the Week 15 game, but fantasy players should keep an eye on the situation over the next few days. He can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in leagues if he plays.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.
Huddle Up: Kirk is coming off one of his better games of the season and has been targeted at least seven times in five of the last six games. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues if he plays.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald has been targeted at least seven times in three of the last four games but has been held to 40 yards or less in two of the last three games. He could be a possible flex option in some deeper leagues but could be avoided in a majority of leagues.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk caught eight of his nine targets for 85 yards in a 23-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 14.
Huddle Up: Kirk has caught at least six passes in three of the last four games, but a Week 15 matchup with a solid Cleveland secondary will likely limit his upside.

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake rushed 11 times for 37 yards and caught three passes for 30 yards in a 23-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 14.
Huddle Up: After a fast start with the Cardinals, Drake has been held to less than 40 rushing yards in three of the last four games. He continues to lead the backfield in touches, but Drake is a desperation flex play at this point.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray completed 20 of his 30 passes for 194 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions and gained two yards on six carries in a 23-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 14. He was also sacked five times.
Huddle Up: Murray was under assault early and often in this one, and he has now thrown for under 200 yards in three straight games. His running ability gives him QB1 upside on a weekly basis, but he is not playing his best football right now.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald has posted at least 55 yards in two of the last three games and has caught 23 of his last 24 targets. He will be facing a good Pittsburgh Steelers defense this week but can still be a flex option in some leagues.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 4.
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald has been targeted 20 times over the last three games and has been a reliable target for Kyler Murray. He will be facing a solid Pittsburgh Steelers defense this week and may only be a flex option in deeper leagues.

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake played 51 offensive snaps to 15 for David Johnson and zero for Chase Edmonds Sunday, Dec. 1, against the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: Drake has struggled to accomplish much since his Week 9 debut with the Cardinals, but he is receiving the lion's share of the work out of the backfield. He'll need to have a couple more big games before fantasy managers can trust him heading into the 2020 season.

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake rushed 13 times for 31 yards and caught two passes for 20 yards in a 34-7 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 13.
Huddle Up: The entire Arizona offense struggled in this one, but on the plus side for Drake continued to dominate the backfield touches. He figures to be the lead back in Week 14, but a matchup against a solid Pittsburgh defense makes him more of a flex option.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray completed 19 of his 34 passes for 163 yards and an interception and rushed four times for 28 yards and a touchdown in a 34-7 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 13. He was also sacked six times.
Huddle Up: Murray salvaged an otherwise lackluster performance with a rushing score, and while his ability to make big plays with his arm and his legs gives him QB1 upside, the state of Arizona's offensive line is going to be a constant hurdle. Another rough outing could be on tap in Week 14 against a solid Pittsburgh defense.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (hamstring) is officially active for the team's Week 13 game.
Huddle Up: Murray probably will not be limited because of the injury and should see his normal workload. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 13.
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald picked up his first touchdown in eight games last week but has still been held to under 40 yards in four of the last five games. Fitzgerald could be benched this week if fantasy players have better options available.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 13.
Huddle Up: Edmonds is expected to be in uniform this week, but his role is uncertain with Kenyan Drake and David Johnson also healthy. He could be a flex option in some leagues, but fantasy players may want to see him play in a game before considering an option for their lineups.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 29, but is listed as questionable for Week 13.
Huddle Up: Murray appears to be on track to play this week, but fantasy players should keep an eye on the situation over the next few days. He has thrown seven touchdowns over the last three games and also has a rushing touchdown during that span. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hamstring) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 28, after being limited Wednesday.
Huddle Up: Edmonds hasn't played since rushing for just eight yards on seven carries in Week 8. Kenyan Drake was the leader of the Cardinals' backfield in Week 11 and David Johnson should factor in more this week. Edmonds is likely to be the odd man out.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (non-injury) was upgraded to a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 28.
Huddle Up: The Cardinals return from a bye week so there wasn't much concern about Fitz's status. He scored a touchdown in Week 11 for the first time since Week 3, though he racked up just 37 yards while catching all five of his targets. He's good to go as a WR3 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: Edmonds appears to have a good chance to return to the lineup but may be behind David Johnson and Kenyan Drake in terms of touches. Fantasy players likely will be able to find better options and can keep Edmonds on the bench.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 27.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hamstring) is expected to return in Week 13 against the Los Angeles Rams, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
Huddle Up: Much has changed since last we saw Edmonds on the field, most notably the acquisition of Kenyan Drake, who has seemingly become the top back in Arizona. Add in the uncertainty surrounding David Johnson's shrinking role and this becomes a very interesting situation. Until we get some clarity I'd be hesitant to plug Edmonds into a fantasy lineup.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hamstring) returned to practice Monday, Nov. 25, for the first time since suffering a hamstring injury in Week 8 against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: Common sense would seem to dictate that Edmonds - assuming he is able to play this week - should slot in as the breather back for Kenyan Drake in Week 13 versus the Los Angeles Rams, but Arizona has pulled fantasy owners more than once this season with its backfield. Either way, if Edmonds works ahead of David Johnson, he has a chance to be a decent flex option moving forward.

Arizona Cardinals S Budda Baker leads the NFL with 71 solo tackles, and his 98 total stops rank third overall and first among defensive backs.
Huddle Up: Baker has logged at least eight tackles in six straight games, notching 13 or more in three of his last four. Baker is one of the elite IDP options among defensive backs, and he should deliver another big effort against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 13 after the bye.

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake played 88 percent of the offensive snaps against the San Francisco 49ers Sunday, Nov. 17. RB David Johnson played just nine total snaps, with all coming on offense.
Huddle Up: Drake has totaled 283 yards from scrimmage with a rushing touchdown in three games with the Cardinals. Arizona is on a bye this week which may allow David Johnson to get fully back up to speed and could even see Chase Edmonds return to the mix, but Drake heads into the break as the most appealing option all of a sudden.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hamstring) was held out of practice again Tuesday, Nov. 19.
Huddle Up: It was likely a light session with the upcoming bye week, suggesting Edmonds isn't anywhere close to a return. Kenyan Drake appears to have taken control of the backfield for now, but we'll see if David Johnson can use the time off to close the gap and earn back some touches.
