Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray will play at least the first half of the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 24, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
Huddle Up: Murray struggled in the last preseason game but will be the starting quarterback for the team this season. Murray probably should be considered low-end No. 1 quarterback or a No. 2 quarterback in most leagues but will be more valuable in keeper leagues.

Arizona Cardinals WR Andy Isabella's caught one of his four targets for a 59-yard touchdown in a 33-26 preseason loss to the Oakland Raiders Thursday, Aug. 15.
Huddle Up: Isabella has reportedly fallen behind KeeSean Johnson in the battle for the No. 3 receiver role, but his big-play ability was on display in this one. Isabella is more of a late-round flier in redraft leagues, but he is a valuable asset in dynasty formats.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray completed three of his eight passes for 12 yards and rushed once for four yards in a 33-26 preseason loss to the Oakland Raiders Thursday, Aug. 15. He was also sacked twice.
Huddle Up: After generating plenty of buzz in his preseason opener, Murray was humbled in his second start. His QB1 upside isn't going away, but this performance is a good reminder for fantasy owners that there are going to be bumps in the road with any rookie quarterback.

Arizona Cardinals TE Charles Clay (knee) was activated from the the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list Sunday, Aug. 11.
Huddle Up: Clay, a fantasy factor 3-4 years ago, is now part of a deep group that includes Ricky Seals-Jones and Maxx Williams and doesn't belong on the fantasy radar outside of the deepest of leagues.

Arizona Cardinals WR Kevin White is listed as the No. 3 receiver on Arizona's first depth chart.
Huddle Up: White will have his work cut out for him if he is going to hold off Andy Isabella, Hakeem Butler and KeeSean Johnson, but if he does end up starting in three-receiver sets, the former top-10 pick makes for an interesting lottery ticket at the end of drafts in Arizona's high-powered offense.

Arizona Cardinals TE Charles Clay (knee) was placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list Saturday, July 20.
Huddle Up: Clay has a good chance to be the starter for the Cardinals this season but may not have a big role in the passing game. He probably can be avoided in most leagues.

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson's receiving skills 'should come back to the forefront' after being 'all but ignored last season,' in the opinion of Darren Urban of
Huddle Up: This has been the assumption among fantasy owners since Arizona hired Kliff Kingsbury, but it always helps to get it confirmed from a scribe that covers the team like Urban does. Johnson's goal of a 1,000/1,000 season may be a bit too much to ask, but this figures to be the 27-year-old's best shot of hitting those marks since his incredible 2016 campaign. He's well worth a pick in the top half of the first round of most fantasy drafts.
Posted 7/13/2019 5:07 pm UTC
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald will move around the offensive formation this season so the team can keep defenses honest, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald had a disappointing season in 2018 but should continue to have a solid role in the passing game. He has been a consistent contributor in fantasy leagues during his career and can still be considered a No. 3 receiver in most leagues.
Posted 7/10/2019 12:07 am UTC
Arizona Cardinals WR Kevin White thinks he can get his career back on track in Arizona after playing just 14 games over four years since being selected with the No. 7 pick of the 2015 draft by the Chicago Bears. 'Oh, man. This could revive my career,' White said. ' ... The fans haven't seen Kevin White yet. I think, God-willing, they'll be able to see it this year under this offense and this coaching staff and this organization.'
Huddle Up: White isn't yet worthy of fantasy consideration, but he'll be a player worth monitoring in training camp and preseason, as he works with QB Kyler Murray and competes for a spot in a thin receiving corps.
Posted 6/28/2019 3:06 pm UTC
Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk seems primed to flourish and knows the offense, in the opinion of beat writer Darren Urban.
Huddle Up: Kirk had a 43-590-3 rookie campaign and tied his season high with eight targets in the season finale. His other eight-target game led to his best game of the year with seven grabs for 90 yards. He'll be a pick to click later in drafts.
Posted 6/24/2019 3:06 am UTC
Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds will have a 'really nice role in the offense' this season, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
Huddle Up: Kingsbury has also said he plans to use David Johnson as the feature back, so Edmonds isn't likely to have a big enough role to be more than a handcuff for fantasy owners in redraft leagues. That being said, he is an intriguing stash candidate in dynasty formats.
Posted 6/18/2019 6:06 am UTC
Arizona Cardinals RB T.J. Logan said Wednesday, June 17 that his lack of impact last season was self-inflicted, and he has been on a mission over the past six months. 'At the end of the season, it clicked for me, like I needed to put more into it,' said Logan. 'This game, you're only going to get out what you put in.' He feels
Huddle Up: Logan has an uphill climb behind David Johnson and Chase Edmonds in the offseason, but he is a speedburner should might be just one injury away from a rather meaningful role.
Posted 6/18/2019 5:06 am UTC
Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds expressed confidence Wednesday, June 17 that he will have a regular role in the offseason despite the fact RB David Johnson will be leaned upon heavily as the bellcow back. 'Me and (Dave) are definitely pushing for (two-back looks),' Edmonds said. 'It opens up his dynamic ability and mine as well. Whether it's two-back sets or Dave in the slot, me in the slot, it doesn't really matter.'
Huddle Up: Edmonds might be confident that he'll have a decent role, but head coach Kliff Kingsbury has made it clear he intends on riding Johnson hard this season. That's great for his fantasy value, but Edmonds might only see crumbs. His fantasy appeal is much, much less.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald has shown up to almost every voluntary workout so far during his 16th NFL offseason. 'I am hoping he enjoys the process and enjoys what the offense turns into and gives him a reason to stick around a few more years,' head coach Kliff Kingsbury said. 'But he practices and he plays like he's trying to make the team, and that's the biggest compliment I can give him. He doesn't need it, and you'd think he's starving out there. It's impressive to watch.'
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald is learning a new offense, and he is working with rookie Kyler Murray trying to develop a rapport. The veteran remains a freak of nature who refuses to allow Father Time to catch up to him. He had 69 grabs for 734 yards and six touchdowns in 2018, but the lower production was more due to a poor offense than anything on him. He remains a decent WR3/4 or flex fantasy option heading into 2019.
Posted 6/18/2019 5:06 am UTC
Arizona Cardinals TE Ricky Seals-Jones (neck) was able to take part in offseason workouts. Seals-Jones and the rest of the tight ends saw plenty of four-receiver sets during minicamp and offseason workouts. However, he wasn't concerned about a lack of targets heading into 2019. 'Regardless of what happens, I'm going to keep trying to trend up,' Seals-Jones said. 'I'm going to get better at what I do, so whatever the outcome is, I'll be happy as long as I know I did my best. We'll see what the numbers look like at the end of the year.'
Huddle Up: Seals-Jones heads up a full room of tight ends which also includes Charles Clay and Maxx Williams. Kliff Kingsbury doesn't appear keen on using a tight end much in his offense, but it's still a work in progress right now. However, even if Seals-Jones is optimistic or not worried, his fantasy outlook is rather murky at the moment.
Posted 6/15/2019 1:06 am UTC
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.
Posted 6/01/2019 10:06 pm UTC
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.
Posted 5/21/2019 2:05 am UTC
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.
Posted 5/19/2019 1:05 am UTC
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
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.
Posted 5/04/2019 3:05 am UTC
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.
Posted 4/13/2019 9:04 pm UTC
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.
Posted 4/12/2019 1:04 am UTC
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.
Posted 3/08/2019 9:03 pm UTC
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.
Posted 3/07/2019 5:03 am UTC
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.
Posted 2/26/2019 5:02 am UTC
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.
Posted 2/16/2019 1:02 am UTC
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.
Posted 2/15/2019 8:02 pm UTC
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.
Posted 2/14/2019 6:02 pm UTC
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.
Posted 1/25/2019 1:01 am UTC
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.
Posted 1/24/2019 12:01 pm UTC
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.
