Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake said he is not worried about his contract situation and believes he will receive an extension at some point.
Huddle Up: Drake was outstanding after joining the Cardinals and will receive most of the work at running back this season. He should be considered at least a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues and could be a low-end No. 1 back in some leagues.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray worked out with a number of his teammates Monday, June 29. WR DeAndre Hopkins, WR Christian Kirk, RB Kenyan Drake, RB Chase Edmonds and TE Maxx Williams are among the players participating in the workout.
Huddle Up: Murray has not been able to work out with his teammates this offseason, so this workout allows him to build chemistry with Hopkins and the other offensive players. He has the chance to be part of one of the top offenses in the NFL in 2020 and should be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray threw for 1,441 yards when the team was using the no-huddle offense during the 2019 season.
Huddle Up: Murray will have one of the better top three receiving corps in the NFL this season with DeAndre Hopkins, Christian Kirk and Larry Fitzgerald. He also can make plays with his legs, which helps his fantasy value. He should be a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald finished second among wide receivers in 2019 with 121 yards on screen passes, according to Pro Football Focus data.
Huddle Up: Soon to be 37, Fitz has caught at least 75 passes in four of the last five seasons but hasn't averaged more than 11.1 yards per reception during any season in that span. The addition of DeAndre Hopkins will certainly take some catches away from Fitzgerald, but he still has WR4 upside in PPR formats.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray has invited 20 of his teammates to participate in workouts in Dallas starting this weekend, according to sources. He invited three other quarterbacks, four running backs, nine receivers and four tight ends to the workouts.
Huddle Up: The Cardinals did not have practices this offseason, so they will try to build some chemistry over the next week. Murray played well at times last season and will be leading an offense that has the chance to be one of the top offenses in the NFL. Murray should be a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray said he has been throwing to receivers in Houston but hopes to work out with the Cardinals wide receivers in the near future.
Huddle Up: Murray will have one of the better receiving corps to work with this upcoming season with the addition of DeAndre Hopkins. His running ability helps his fantasy value, and he should be considered a No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald caught 60 passes while lined up as the slot receiver during the 2019 season, which ranked third among wide receivers.
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald has been one of the top receivers in the NFL since being drafted and likely will continue to be used as a slot receiver because of the addition of DeAndre Hopkins. He has been a reliable option for fantasy players for many years and can still be a No. 3 fantasy receiver.

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk said his main goal this upcoming season is to stay healthy. He has missed seven games during his first two seasons.
Huddle Up: Kirk has played well when healthy since entering the NFL and will serve as the No. 2 receiver for the Cardinals in 2020 because of the addition of DeAndre Hopkins. Fantasy players can consider Kirk a No. 3 receiver because the Cardinals have the chance to be one of the top offenses this season.

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake is eager for the opportunity to serve as his team's clear-cut No. 1 running for the first time in his five NFL seasons. 'I'm looking forward to, one, putting myself in the best situation; two, be available to be able to do that,' Drake said in an interview in May. 'I had I guess a couple injuries in college that prohibited from me being available on the field. Since I've been in the league, I've been fairly healthy. I'm really just trying to put my body in a situation where I can take a load or get X amount of carries or touches in general.'
Huddle Up: Drake averaged a healthy 18.8 touches, 101.8 yards from scrimmage and one TD in his eight games with the Cards last season, and should be valued as a low-end RB1 in drafts this summer with David Johnson now out of the picture.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray is 'anxious' to begin working with his reconfigured cast of offensive weapons, WR Larry Fitzgerald said on the team's website. 'Talking to (Murray), he loves being around us,' Fitzgerald said. 'He wants to take this to the next level and build on what he was able to accomplish last year, NFL Rookie of the Year. He's got a lot of guys who want to play well for him, and he wants to do the same for us. Hopefully we will be able to do it here pretty soon.'
Huddle Up: Murray finished seventh among QBs as a rookie last season in terms of total fantasy points, but that standing could rise if his aerial numbers improve as he finished 15th in passing yards (3,722) and 21st in passing TDs (20). He's a QB1, regardless.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray is expected to work out with teammates at some point this week, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
Huddle Up: Murray played well at times last season and should have one of the better receiving corps to work with after the addition of DeAndre Hopkins. He likely will be more comfortable with the offense in his second season. He can be considered a No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins said Thursday, May 28, he expects his numbers to improve in the Cardinals' pass-happy offense. 'So myself, being a receiver, of course I see my stats going up. ... But I definitely see myself having one of my more productive seasons,' Hopkins said.
Huddle Up: Hopkins saw at least 150 targets each of the last five seasons as the No. 1 option for the Houston Texans. He totaled 504 receptions for 6,590 yards and 46 touchdowns in that time. The Cardinals pass-catching corps is more talented than the Texans' during Hopkins' tenure, and it will need to be seen whether he will still command the lion's share of the volume. He remains a WR1, but it will be tough for him to improve his numbers in Year 1 with Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk prominent figures in the passing game.

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake 'could pass 350 touches if he stays healthy' in 2020, in the opinion of Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com.
Huddle Up: Drake logged 151 touches in eight games after being acquired by Arizona last season, so 350 touches isn't out of the realm of possibility in a full season as the lead back. If he can handle the workload, he has RB1 upside.

Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins ranks first in the NFL in targets (487) and receiving touchdowns (31) over the last three seasons. He also ranks second with 315 receptions in that time.
Huddle Up: Hopkins is the new addition to a receiving corps previously fronted by Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk. Hopkins will remain the No. 1 option in the passing game, as he was with the Houston Texans, but he'll likely need to share targets much more than he did before. He's still a top-tier WR1, but a dip in production should be expected for his first season in Arizona.

Arizona Cardinals WR Hakeem Butler missed his entire rookie season after suffering a finger injury in training camp, but the coaching staff still believes he has an 'intriguing skill set,' according to Kyle Odegard of the team's website. '(Butler has) tons of ability. He's healthy. He's been working hard this offseason. He knows what we expect of him, and what we think he can be. I'm really excited when we can finally get him back on the field,' head coach Kliff Kingsbury said.
Huddle Up: Kingsbury also told the team's website one of the reasons the Cardinals passed on receivers in the 2020 draft was that they remain intrigued by Butler, Andy Isabella and KeeSean Johnson. Even though Arizona goes four-wide more than most teams, it's unlikely any of them make any significant noise in fantasy this season barring injury to DeAndre Hopkins, Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk. As such, Butler and his fellow 2019 draft classmates figure to be nothing more than holds in dynasty leagues.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald topped 100 yards on double-digit targets in the first two games of 2019, but he failed to reach 100 yards or more than eight targets in any of the final 14 games, failing to reach 50 yards 10 times in that span.
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald has delivered pedestrian numbers in each of the last two seasons, and he tied a career low with four touchdowns in 2019. The offseason addition of DeAndre Hopkins isn't going to help his recent decline in production either. Fitzgerald is a fantasy backup.

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake said he was fine with receiving the franchise tag this offseason and hopes the two sides will be able to reach a long-term contract at some point.
Huddle Up: Drake was a breakout star after joining the Cardinals during the 2019 season and will be the main running back this upcoming season. He can be considered a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray is expected to take another big step in 2020 after being named the 2019 Offensive Rookie of the Year, according to general manager Steve Keim Tuesday, April 28. 'I think he's even a better pure passer than people have anticipated, but the thing that's gonna separate him is the ability to process, to see things, to make good decisions, get the ball out of his hands, don't take so many sacks,' Keim said.
Huddle Up: Murray will certainly be helped by the offseason addition of No. 1 receiver DeAndre Hopkins. He was sacked a league-high 48 times last season and threw 12 interceptions against his 20 touchdown passes, but some experience and the ability to make quicker reads will help limit those mistakes. He's a mid-tier QB1 in re-draft leagues.

Arizona Cardinals RB Eno Benjamin is not expected to receive many offensive snaps during his rookie season since he is behind RBs Kenyan Drake and Chase Edmonds on the depth chart.
Huddle Up: Benjamin probably will receive a handful of touches early in the season but could earn a bigger role later in the season if he is productive. Fantasy players can avoid him during their drafts but should keep an eye on him during the season.

Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins said Friday, April 17, he wasn't caught off guard by the March trade that sent him from the Houston Texans to Arizona, adding that he first started hearing trade rumors in 2019. 'It wasn't a big surprise,' Hopkins said on a media conference call. 'I was preparing for it.'
Huddle Up: Hopkins has been a top-10 fantasy wideout in four of the last five seasons, and while the change in scenery is a first for Hopkins, continue to value him as a rock-solid WR1.

Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim is excited about the addition of WR DeAndre Hopkins. 'I feel like DeAndre is a game-changer. He's a guy that can play on the perimeter. He's physical. He's got a great catching radius. Strong hands. Really good after the catch. And he's a tenacious competitor. So, to be able to add that type of player to our locker room, to me, gets me really, really excited,' Keim said of the team's new No. 1 receiver.
Huddle Up: Hopkins will remain a high-target option with the Cardinals and continues as a WR1 in fantasy football drafts.

Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim, as an update to previous reports, said he has spoken with RB Kenyan Drake's agent, Pat Dye, Jr., about signing Drake to a long-term deal. Drake has been re-signed to a one-year deal already, but Keim has made it clear the team would like Drake to remain with the Cardinals for longer than that.
Huddle Up: In eight games with the Cardinals last season following a mid-season trade from the Miami Dolphins, Drake rushed for 643 yards on 123 carries and scored eight touchdowns. He added another 171 yards on 28 receptions. While talented with huge upside in a scheme that appears to fit his talents better than Miami's system did, Drake should be considered a RB2 entering draft season.

Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins officially passed his physical Monday, April 13.
Huddle Up: Hopkins will be the focal point in the passing game this season and has been a consistent fantasy receiver no matter his quarterback. He likely will be one of the first receivers selected in all fantasy leagues in 2020.

Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said the third running back spot behind RB Kenyan Drake and RB Chase Edmonds may still be open following the re-signing of RB D.J. Foster. 'We think he has a good skill set,' Kingsbury said in regard to Foster, 'but that's an area we'd like to have three that you feel like we could roll through and not lose much.'
Huddle Up: Drake is the clear fantasy target from the Cardinals' backfield, and he'll be a strong RB2 as the depth chart currently stands. The selection of a top-end rookie back within the first three rounds of the 2020 NFL Draft could take away from Drake's appeal in re-draft leagues, and the younger option would likely become the superior dynasty target.

Arizona Cardinals RBs Kenyan Drake and Chase Edmonds have head coach Kliff Kingsbury 'really excited' about the first two spots on the depth chart, but Kingsbury told a group of reporters in a videoconference on Tuesday, April 7, that he'd like to have three running backs 'that we feel like we could roll through and not lose much.'
Huddle Up: While this could be an indication Kingsbury wants to use a three-man committee, it's more than likely a realization that he wants to be deep at a position that was ravaged by injuries in 2019. Drake did more than enough after arriving via trade at midseason to warrant at least 15 touches per week and should be considered a low-end RB1 for fantasy purposes. Edmonds also performed well before getting hurt and should be considered Drake's high-upside handcuff.

Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins has yet to take his physical with the team, but head coach Kliff Kingsbury said Tuesday, April 7, he has 'no doubt' the deal will get done before the 2020 NFL Draft (April 23).
Huddle Up: If the deal were to somehow fall through within the next two weeks, the Cardinals would be likely to target one of Jerry Jeudy, CeeDee Lamb or Henry Ruggs with their No. 8 overall pick. Of course, Hopkins would fill the Cards' need for a No. 1 receiver once the trade is finalized once and for all.

Arizona Cardinals WR Andy Isabella finished with nine catches as a rookie, playing just 38 snaps over the first eight games, and he was limited to 'fly routes and jet sweeps' because of his inability to separate on shorter routes, according to Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Isabella has the speed to take the top off defenses, but between his limited route tree and the addition of DeAndre Hopkins, fantasy owners probably shouldn't expect a dramatic step forward in Year 2.

Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins has had 'some conversations' with general manager Steve Keim regarding his contract, according to chairman Michael Bidwill Tuesday, March 31.
Huddle Up: Hopkins has no guaranteed money remaining on his current deal, but the Cardinals certainly won't be releasing him after acquiring him from the Houston Texans. He's still just 27 years old and is one of the top receivers in the game. An extension and a raise would make sense in order to keep Hopkins paired with QB Kyler Murray for the foreseeable future. Doing so would keep both players as top options at their respective positions in dynasty and keeper formats.

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake on Saturday, March 21, signed his transition-tag tender offer. Signing a longer-term deal also remains a possibility for Drake this offseason.
Huddle Up: Drake averaged an impressive 19.7 fantasy points (standard scoring) in eight games with the Cards last season, and that figure would've ranked second on the season behind only Christian McCaffrey (22.1). He's a low-end RB1 candidate for 2020 with David Johnson now out of the picture in Arizona.
