Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk has shown a 'good feel' for the offense, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
Huddle Up: With his speed and explosiveness, Kirk could be one of the main beneficiaries of Kingsbury's offensive-minded approach and the addition of quarterback Kyler Murray. He's worth a look as a WR4, and he has the potential to emerge as a fantasy starter.

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson said he optimistic about the offense head coach Kliff Kingsbury is bringing to the team. He believes he can have a similar season in 2019 than he did in 2016 when he posted more than 2,000 total yards.
Huddle Up: The Cardinals will try to play fast on offense, so Johnson should receive plenty of touches during games. He should be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues because of his abilities in the running and passing game.

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson and WR Larry Fitzgerald were not present during practice Monday, May 20.
Huddle Up: Both Johnson and Fitzgerald could participate in practice later this offseason and should be on the field for mandatory minicamp. Johnson will be a No. 1 running back in fantasy leagues this upcoming season, while Fitzgerald could be a No. 3 receiver.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald could reach 100 catches because of all the 'quick-rhythm throws' in head coach Kliff Kingsbury's offense, in the opinion of Bucky Brooks of NFL.com.
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald is coming off a down year, but with Kyler Murray under center and a pass-happy offense being installed, he could see an uptick in his numbers. While 100 catches may be a little optimistic, Fitzgerald is Arizona's most dependable receiver. It wouldn't be a shock to see him finish as a solid WR3.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk could be used as 'a bubble screen guy where you get it in his hands' in the mold of Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen, according to one NFL executive.
Huddle Up: Kirk has flashed his explosiveness, albeit in sporadically, and finding more ways to put the ball in his hands is only going to increase his chances of producing big plays. Head coach Kliff Kingsbury's offense could be just what the doctor ordered to unleash Kirk's full potential, and he's a great target in the later rounds of drafts.

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson said he still wants to post at least 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards in the same season.
Huddle Up: Johnson will be working in a new offense next season but should continue to be a focal point for the Cardinals. He likely will be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues in 2019.

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson said he is excited to work out of the shotgun in head coach Kliff Kingsbury's offense. 'I think it really opens up more space for me and makes me able to read the defense a little bit more,' Johnson said.
Huddle Up: Johnson struggled with efficiency last year, but if Kingsbury opens up the offense and utilizes Johnson as a receiver more often, a return to RB1 production isn't out of the question. He should at least be able to provide volume-based RB2 numbers.

Arizona Cardinals exclusive rights free-agent TE Ricky Seals- Jones received a tender offer Friday, March 8.
Huddle Up: Seals-Jones finished this season with 343 yards and one touchdown in 15 games. He probably will compete with Charles Clay for the starting tight end job next season but can be avoided in fantasy drafts.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald didn't want to wrap up his career after a poor 2018 season. 'We had a really bad season last year and I just didn't want to go out on that level,' Fitzgerald said on a podcast via the team's official website. 'You've got to live the rest of your life knowing you went out on that level.'
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald showed he still has plenty left in the tank, posting 69 grabs for 734 yards and six touchdowns in his 15th NFL season. However, his yardage total did mark a career low. He is more of a WR4 or WR5 in most fantasy leagues heading into 2019.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk caught six of the seven catchable passes thrown in his direction at least 20 yards down the field for 227 yards and a touchdown as a rookie in 2018, according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: Kirk broke his foot in early December but was starting to emerge as a playmaker for the woeful Cardinals. The new regime should suit him well, however, as the Texas A&M product was one of the draft's best run-after-catch receivers a year ago, and head coach Kliff Kingsbury's offense should allow for plenty of those opportunities. Kirk is a player fantasy owners should keep in mind as a deep sleeper in 2019.

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson is going to remain a big part of the offense, according to offensive line coach Sean Kugler, and Kugler said people will be 'surprised' by how much the Cardinals run the ball in 2019.
Huddle Up: It's unlikely that the Cardinals will become a run-first team with Kliff Kingsbury now the coach, but Johnson's versatility allows him to contribute as a runner and a receiver. He should at least be a volume-based RB2.

Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay was released Friday, Feb. 15.
Huddle Up: Clay is coming off a disappointing 2018 season and has been held to under 600 yards in each of the last four seasons. He should not be an option in most fantasy leagues even if he finds another starting job.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (foot) expects to be fully healed from his broken foot by the end of February. Kirk suffered the injury in Week 12 last season. Doctors said his recovery process is going well. 'I'm doing all the things I can to make sure I'm the best me,' Kirk said.
Huddle Up: Kirk performed well overall as a rookie despite Arizona's disappointing year. He and Josh Rosen showed glimpses of a future dynamic duo. Even with Larry Fitzgerald returning, Kirk possesses WR3 upside as Arizona's No. 2 wide receiver.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (foot) said he is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a foot injury.
Huddle Up: Kirk showed promise as a rookie before the injury, and he should enter 2019 as the No. 2 option in the passing game across from Larry Fitzgerald. His success will be somewhat tied to the development of quarterback Josh Rosen, but Kirk will have WR3 potential.

Updating previous reports, Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald's one-year deal is worth nearly $16 million. He'll have an $11 million base salary and received a $4.85 million signing bonus.
Huddle Up: Fitz took a step back in fantasy last season, albeit the quarterback issues had something to do with it. That may not change in 2019, and he's a PPR WR3 target with minimal upside.

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson could see fewer targets in the passing game in head coach Kliff Kingsbury's offense, according to Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com. Urban notes that while Kingsbury was coach at Texas Tech, no running back had more than 41 receptions in a single season.
Huddle Up: Johnson is by far the best weapon for an otherwise lackluster Arizona offense, and even in a down year, he managed 10 touchdowns, 50 receptions and nearly 1,400 yards from scrimmage. It seems unlikely that Kingsbury will elect to phase out his most dangerous player in any capacity, so volume-based, low-end RB1 production is possible for Johnson in 2019.

Arizona Cardinals WR Chad Williams hauled in five of his 11 targets for 51 yards - all career highs - in Week 17 versus the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Shortly after the 2017 draft, it was reported some of the team's staffers thought Williams was going to be Larry Fitzgerald's long-term replacement. He wraps up his second season in the desert with career totals of 20 receptions, 202 yards and one touchdown. Williams will be lucky to see significant snaps behind Fitzgerald (if he doesn't retire), Christian Kirk and David Johnson next season - and that assumes he even makes the team.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald caught four of his nine targets for 36 yards and a touchdown in Week 17 versus the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: There is a chance Fitzgerald was playing the final game of his distinguished career, although he still has plenty left to give physically. Whether or not he wants to return for another year of the Cardinals' rebuilding project is another story. Fitzgerald ends his 15th season with 69 catches, 734 yards and six touchdowns. If he calls it a career, he'll do so ranked inside the top three all-time in career receptions (1,303) and receiving yards (16,279) with an invite to the Hall of Fame coming five years down the road.

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson rushed for 62 yards on 17 carries and hauled in three of his four targets for six yards in Week 17 against the Seattle Seahawks. Johnson was able to run in a two-point conversion.
Huddle Up: A player taken No. 1 overall in many fantasy drafts this summer, Johnson was unable to really ever get it going behind one of the worst offensive lines in the league, poor play-calling and defenses able to sell out to stop him. Arizona will likely clean house in the coaching ranks, but it's going to take that and then some for Johnson to be worth taking before the end of the first round in most fantasy drafts in 2019.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 28, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald has been targeted 26 times over the last three games and appears to have a solid chemistry with Josh Rosen. He can be considered a flex option in some leagues this week.

Arizona Cardinals TE Ricky Seals-Jones (shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 28, and has been ruled out for Week 17.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald has been targeted at least six times in each of the last four games and has recorded over 50 yards in each of the last three games. He can be considered a flex option in some deeper leagues but can also be benched if owners have better options.

Arizona Cardinals TE Ricky Seals-Jones (shoulder) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: Seals-Jones could be a game-time decision for the Week 17 game, so owners should monitor the situation. Jermaine Gresham would start if Seals-Jones does not play but is can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Arizona Cardinals TE Ricky Seals-Jones (shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Seals-Jones was on the injury report last week with an illness; now it's a shoulder issue, which could explain his one-catch-for- three-yards outing in Week 16. Either way, he's mostly just a TE2 option if he plays in the season finale.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (non-injury) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: It's typical protocol for the future Hall-of-Fame wide-out. He'll continue serving as a serviceable WR3 in leagues that are still going on into Week 17. Fitzgerald has drawn at least eight targets in each of the last three games -- and may see more than that if this is indeed his final NFL game.

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson rushed 10 times for 35 yards and caught a 32-yard touchdown in a 31-9 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Johnson managed just 11 touches as the Cardinals were a disaster on offense as a whole. Big workloads have allowed him to salvage a decent fantasy season, but unless Josh Rosen can make a major leap in 2019, Johnson's days as an elite RB1 are probably over.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald caught six of his nine targets for 53 yards and threw a 32-yard touchdown pass in a 31-9 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald hasn't announced if he will return in 2019, but in the meantime, he remains a low-upside flex option heading into what could be his final NFL game.
