Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray is averaging a career-low 3.1 yards per rush this season, and he has a long run of 18 yards.
Huddle Up: While Murray hasn't been making as many big plays with his legs, he has scored three rushing touchdowns while enjoying by far his best season throwing the ball. He may be accumulating his numbers in a different manner, but Murray remains a top-five fantasy quarterback.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Edmonds has been sharing playing time with James Conner over the last few weeks and should receive a similar workload this week. He can be a flex option in most fantasy leagues.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: Edmonds has received only 10 carries over the last two games but does have six receptions during that span. He should continue to be involved in the running and passing game against the Houston Texans and can be a flex option in fantasy leagues.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 20.
Huddle Up: Edmonds received only seven touches in the last game and finished with 50 total yards. He will continue to share playing time with James Conner and may only be a flex option at this point.

Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 20.
Huddle Up: Hopkins is receiving a day off and should return to practice in the next day or two. He has caught three touchdowns in the last two games and continues to be one of the better receivers in the NFL. He is a weekly starting option when healthy.

Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins registered three receptions for 55 yards and two touchdowns on four targets in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: Hopkins has visited the end zone three times in the past two games, and six times in six outings overall. While he hasn't had a 100-yard game yet, which is a bit surprising, he has been very consistent and has posted three or more grabs in each outing. He remains a top-end fantasy option in all formats heading into Week 7 against the Houston Texans, his former team.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk posted five grabs for 75 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns, and he was targeted a team-high eight times.
Huddle Up: Kirk visited the end zone for the first time since Week 1 when he pierced the end zone twice. He has five or more grabs in four of his six outings, going for 65 or more yards on four occasions. Kirk is a decent WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams. The Cardinals host the Texans in Week 7.

Arizona Cardinals WR A.J. Green registered five receptions for 79 yards and a touchdown on six targets in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: Green was playing in a stadium he was familiar after visiting on a yearly basis as a member of the Cincinnati Bengals for most of his career, so he was comfortable. He has scored a touchdown in every other game this season, producing scores in even-numbered weeks, and he has at least five grabs in three of the past four outings. Green has re-emerged as a respectable WR3 or flex fantasy option in PPR leagues, with lesser appeal in standard play. The Cardinals host the Texans in Week 7.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds rushed four times for 46 yards in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns, and he added three receptions for four yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: Edmonds had seven total touches to 16 for James Conner, which isn't what fantasy managers of Edmonds want to see. He needs at least double-digit touch totals to be in the regular fantasy rotation in most leagues. The Cardinals host the Texans in Week 7.

Arizona Cardinals RB James Conner rushed 16 times for a game-high 71 yards in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns while also adding a catch for no gain on his only target.
Huddle Up: Conner was back in familiar territory in a stadium he played annually as a member of the visiting Pittsburgh Steelers. He looked good, averaging 4.4 yards per carry, although he couldn't get into the end zone. He remains a decent RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 7 against the Houston Texans in a very favorable matchup.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray completed 20-of-30 passes for 229 yards, four touchdowns in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns while running for six yards.
Huddle Up: Murray was surgical, as the Arizona offense didn't skip a beat without head coach Kliff Kingsbury and quarterbacks coach Cam Turner back home after positive COVID tests. Murray and the Cardinals are back home in Week 7 against the hapless Houston Texans.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (shoulder) is officially active for the Week 6 game.
Huddle Up: Edmonds likely will share playing time with James Conner and can still be a flex option in most fantasy leagues.

Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins has seven straight games without 100 yards receiving, his longest streak since 2016.
Huddle Up: The Arizona offense has been putting plenty of points on the board, but Kyler Murray has been spreading the ball around. Hopkins remains a WR2 candidate, but the reduction in targets has taken a toll on his usually high floor.

Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 15, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Hopkins will be able to receive his normal workload even though he missed the first two practices of the week. He is one of the better receivers in the NFL when healthy and should be a starting option in all leagues.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 15, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Murray has thrown for 10 touchdowns and rushed for three touchdowns in five games this season and ranks sixth in the NFL with 1,512 passing yards. He should be a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 15, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Edmonds was a limited participant in all three practices this week and should be ready to play in the Week 6 game. He will share playing time with James Conner but can still be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz was acquired by the Arizona Cardinals Friday, Oct. 15, in exchange for CB Tay Gowan and a 2022 fifth-round pick.
Huddle Up: This is big for the Cards as they are a legit Super Bowl contender, and Ertz's fantasy value should blossom in this high-octane offense. He just played Thursday night, and he's ineligible to play this week.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 14.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 14.
Huddle Up: Murray should be able to play despite the injury and will be facing a Cleveland Browns defense that struggled last week. He has posted 13 total touchdowns in five games this season and should continue to be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback.

Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (illness) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 14.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Hopkins will be available for the Week 6 game. He is a must-start option if active, but players will need other options available in case he is ruled out.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 13.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 13.
Huddle Up: Murray should be on track to play this week, but fantasy players will know more later in the week. He is coming off one of his quieter games of the season but has still posted 10 touchdowns in five games. He should still be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (illness) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 13.
Huddle Up: Hopkins probably will return to practice at some point this week and should receive his normal workload. He has posted at least 65 yards in three of the five games in 2021 and has four touchdowns on the season. He should be a starting option in all leagues if active.

Arizona Cardinals TE Maxx Williams (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Oct. 13.
Huddle Up: Williams likely will miss the rest of the season, so the Cardinals will have to find a new starting tight end. Darrell Daniels and Demetrius Harris are currently on the roster, but both can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Arizona Cardinals TE Maxx Williams (knee) is feared to have suffered a season-ending injury to his right knee in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Williams has emerged into a low-end TE1 this season, and there's no clear-cut replacement for him on the roster. Demetrius Harris could be the next up, but he doesn't factor into fantasy.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk hauled in all five of his targets for 39 yards and added an 11-yard run in Week 5 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Virtually no Cardinal outside of DeAndre Hopkins enjoyed much success in this one. Kirk continues to see the bulk of his time in the slot, which is a good deal for him and his fantasy managers since it makes him an easy target for Kyler Murray in one of the best offenses in the league. However, Kirk has really only been useful in fantasy in two of five games since Arizona is doing such a good job of spreading the wealth. Consider him a WR4 with upside in Week 6 versus the Cleveland Browns.

Arizona Cardinals WR A.J. Green caught one of his two targets in Week 5 versus the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: This effort marked the first time in his five games as a Cardinal he did not see exactly six targets and ended a three-game run where he was worth starting in fantasy. While fantasy managers can't quite just forget this one and move on, we've already seen he has something to offer as the second- or third-best receiver on one of the best offenses in the league. He's worth firing up again as a flex option in three-receiver leagues in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns.

Arizona Cardinals WR Rondale Moore caught five of his six targets for 59 yards and ran three times for a team-high 38 yards in Week 5 versus the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Moore made one of the better catches of the season in the second quarter, getting himself open to the sideline while Kyler Murray broke contain and toe-tapping his feet inbounds while falling out of bounds to haul in a 33-yard throw. The catches, yards and targets were all Moore's most since Week 2, while his rushing marks were season highs across the board. While Arizona may be spreading the wealth too much for any one receiver besides DeAndre Hopkins to go off consistently, Moore is well worth using in the flex in any week that fantasy managers' other options don't look overly appealing.
