Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (ankle) started in Week 7 in large part because he wanted 'give playing a shot,' but head coach Kliff Kingsbury said Johnson didn't feel right after a couple plays, leading to Kingsbury' decision to feature Chase Edmonds.
Huddle Up: Although it will not comfort Johnson's fantasy owners - especially those who benched Edmonds as a result - this makes more sense than the initial "emergency situation only" explanation given by Kingsbury on Sunday. Kingsbury did offer a hint this could happen on Friday when he said Johnson would not have played if the game was on that day. If Johnson is limited in any way this week during practice, it is likely he will share touches with Edmonds in Week 8 against the New Orleans Saints.

Arizona Cardinals WR Pharoh Cooper had four catches for 29 yards on four targets in Week 7 against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: It was mostly a ground-based attack for the Cards, but Cooper was the leader in catches and yards for the team in rainy, raw conditions. It likely won't happen again, and he isn't much of a fantasy option going forward. The Cards meet the Saints on the road in Week 8.

Arizona Cardinals WR Andy Isabella posted two receptions for eight yards in Week 7 against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: The weather was ugly, so the Cards kept it a mostly ground-based attack. The rookie actually had the second-most amount of catches, that's how poor it was. Isabella is only worth using as a low-end option in deeper fantasy leagues most weeks. The Cards travel to meet the Saints in Week 8.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds rushed 27 times for 126 yards and three touchdowns while adding two catches for 24 yards on four targets in Week 7 against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Edmonds stepped in with David Johnson active, but held out as a precaution with slippery and rainy conditions due to an ankle and knee injury. The handcuff showed he is more than capable when his number is called, and he will be a hot add off the waiver wire for the stretch run just in case. The Cards travel to meet the Saints in Week 8.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald posted just one grab for 12 yards on three targets in Week 7 against the New York Giants in rainy weather conditions.
Huddle Up: The Cardinals kept the attack mostly ground based, and that was bad news for everyone involved in the passing game. It will be dry for Fitzgerald and the Cardinals under the dome in New Orleans in Week 8.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray completed 14-of-21 passes for 104 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 7 against the New York Giants during sloppy, rainy conditions.
Huddle Up: Murray also ran for 28 yards, but his production was limited with rainy conditions due to the remnants of Tropical Storm Nestor making it a mostly ground-based attack. The Cardinals won't have to worry about weather in the dome next week at New Orleans.

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (ankle, knee) is officially active for the team's Week 7 game.
Huddle Up: Johnson should receive plenty of touches this week against the New York Giants and is a must-start option in all leagues.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (ankle) is unlikely to play in Week 7's game against the New York Giants, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Kirk was listed as questionable on the injury report after being a limited practice participant throughout the week but it appears as though he needs additional time for rest and recovery. Fantasy owners should have alternative options available since it looks like Kirk will miss his third game in a row.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald continues to be a reliable fantasy option for fantasy players and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 18, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Kirk has missed some time because of the injury, so he may be a game-time decision this week. He is a decent fantasy option when he is healthy but probably can be benched this week if fantasy players have better options.

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 18, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Johnson likely will be the game-time decision, so fantasy players will need to monitor the situation over the next few days. He should be a starting option in all leagues if he plays, but players should have other options available in case he is ruled out.

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (ankle) is expected to be a game-time decision for Week 7 versus the New York Giants. Head coach Kliff Kingsbury told reporters Friday, Oct. 18, that Johnson would not have played if the game was Friday.
Huddle Up: This comes as a bit of a surprise considering Johnson was ahead of last week's pace when he was dealing with a back injury. It's unlikely the ankle improves significantly over the next 48 hours, so fantasy owners should expect him to share a few more touches than usual with backup Chase Edmonds. Johnson should still remain in fantasy lineups if he plays, but expectations obviously need to be kept in check.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (ankle) remained limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 17.
Huddle Up: Kirk has missed the last two games due to the injury. He should step right back into his starting role if able to return this week in a promising matchup against the New York Giants, but fantasy managers should want to see him get in a full practice session Friday.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (non-injury) participated in a full practice Thursday, Oct. 17.
Huddle Up: Fitz has been routinely sitting out Wednesday sessions and ramping up activity through the week. He has totaled 16 targets and 12 receptions the last two weeks but hasn't found the end zone since Week 3. He remains a reliable WR3 in standard and PPR formats.

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (ankle) returned to practice Thursday, Oct. 17.
Huddle Up: Johnson only got in a limited practice on Friday last week with his back injury, so he's ahead of where he was despite picking up a new injury. While yards on the ground have been hard to come by, he has still been a strong RB1 this season due to his usage in the passing game (30 catches) and at the goal line. Owners should expect more of the same in a favorable matchup against the New York Giants in Week 7.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (ankle) will not play until his ankle is 100 percent, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury, who added that Kirk's ankle is not there yet.
Huddle Up: Kirk hasn't played since Week 4, and though Kingsbury added that the receiver is closer to playing than he was last week it certainly looks possible that Kirk will miss his third straight game this Sunday.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 16.
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald has been a solid target for Kyler Murray this season and has caught at least five passes in every game in 2019. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson returns from his six-game suspension for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Peterson is one of the best corners in the game, but he's not a great fantasy player because teams avoid throwing in his direction. If you're in a league where you start three defensive backs, he could be used to cover a bye week against the New York Giants this week.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds rushed five times for 34 yards and caught two passes for 33 yards and a touchdown in a 34-33 win over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Edmonds continues to flash potential as a change-of-pace back, but unless David Johnson suffers an injury, he is only a handcuff for fantasy purposes.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald caught six of his eight targets for 69 yards in a 34-33 win over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6.
Huddle Up: His yardage totals have fluctuated from one game to the next, but Fitzgerald has caught at least five passes in all six games this year. His safe floor makes him a solid WR3 option.

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson rushed 12 times for 34 yards and a touchdown and caught six passes for 68 yards and another touchdown in a 34-33 win over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Running room has been tough to come by for Johnson this year, but his steady role in the passing game and heavy workload make him a high-end RB2 with RB1 upside in PPR formats.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray completed 27 of his 37 pass attempts for 340 yards and three touchdowns and rushed 11 times for 32 yards in a 34-33 win over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6.
Huddle Up: It was Murray's third 300-yard game of the year and his best overall performance as passer. There have been some growing pains for the rookie, but his QB1 upside is undeniable. Don't hesitate to start him in Week 7 with a juicy matchup against the New York Giants on tap.
