Arizona Cardinals WR Rondale Moore will be used 'in as many different ways' as possible, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury. 'Whether it's handing the ball from the backfield, toss to him on a sweep, go outside or on a fade route, he does it all,' Kingsbury said. 'So, we're going to move him around and make sure he gets his fair share of touches.'
Huddle Up: Moore's speed and versatility should be a good fit in Arizona's offense, but he joins a crowded receiving corps that will make it tough for him to provide worthwhile fantasy production as a rookie.

Purdue WR Rondale Moore was selected by the Arizona Cardinals with the 49th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Moore has tremendous speed and could be a possible slot receiver for the Cardinals. He should see a minimal amount of targets in this crowded passing game. Moore could be a late-round pick in standard leagues but has plenty of hurdles to overcome as a rookie.

Tulsa LB Zaven Collins was selected by the Arizona Cardinals with the 16th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Collins could step in and solidify the middle of the Arizona defense from Day 1, posting solid tackle numbers and making a push for IDP consideration in the process.

Free-agent RB James Conner (Steelers) agreed to a one-year deal with the Arizona Cardinals Tuesday, April 13. Financial terms weren't disclosed.
Huddle Up: Conner and Chase Edmonds figure to serve as a committee, and any steam that Edmonds had this offseason has fizzled with this move. Both will be low-end RB2/high-end RB3 candidates in fantasy.
Posted 4/12/2021 6:20 pm UTC
Free-agent RB James Conner (toe) had surgery to repair a turf toe this offseason and is expected to be fully recovered by June, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Conner may be able to find a starting job in free agency but should be part of a committee with his new team. He could be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy running back depending on his situation.
Posted 4/02/2021 2:06 am UTC
Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins is the only player in the NFL with at least 100 receptions in each of the last three seasons.
Huddle Up: Hopkins has topped 1,100 yards in each of those three seasons, logging 1,407 yards in his first year with Arizona. The addition of A.J. Green could take away a few targets from Hopkins, but he will remain the go-to weapon for Kyler Murray and a top-five fantasy receiver in 2021.

Arizona Cardinals WR A.J. Green 'is a guy ... that could play the 'Z' position for us, has great character ... and I still think he has some stuff left in the tank,' general manager Steve Keim said Tuesday, March 23.
Huddle Up: Green was riddled with injuries in 2018 and 2019 before showing virtually zero chemistry with Joe Burrow and failing to create much separation in 2020. That didn't stop the Cardinals from giving him a one-year deal with a $6 million base salary. If Green can turn back the clock for even one year in 2021, Arizona could be home to the most dynamic offense in the league. The odds are against Green staying healthy, however, meaning he should be considered a late-round flier at best in most leagues.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds may receive some competition this offseason as general manager Steve Keim suggested Monday, March 22, that he will monitor the running back position. However, Keim is of the belief that Edmonds is an 'excellent' player.
Huddle Up: This is definitely one situation to monitor as the offseason unfolds. Edmonds has been allowed to assume a heavy workload on occasion when Arizona's starter has been sidelined - like Kenyan Drake was for a game in 2020 - suggesting the team could be willing to make him the unquestioned starter if they don't add anyone of note. If Arizona avoids the running back position over the first two days of the draft next month, Edmonds would have a solid path to potential fantasy RB1 status.

Free-agent PK Matt Prater (Lions) signed a two-year, $7 million base contract with the Arizona Cardinals Wednesday, March 17, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Arizona is an appealing destination for a kicker heading into the 2021 season with QB Kyler Murray and WRs DeAndre Hopkins and A.J. Green. Prater will be a starting option most weeks.
Posted 3/17/2021 5:28 pm UTC
Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent WR A.J. Green plans to sign with the Arizona Cardinals, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Cardinals may lose Larry Fitzgerald, so Green could take over that role to line up with DeAndre Hopkins and Christian Kirk. Green has struggled over the last several years but probably will have some fantasy value next season. He could be a possible No. 4 fantasy receiver for players.
Posted 3/12/2021 9:36 pm UTC
Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB James Conner may receive interest from the Miami Dolphins during free agency.
Huddle Up: Conner has struggle with injuries during his NFL career and finished with 721 yards and six touchdowns this past season. He probably would receive a majority of the carries if he signed with the Dolphins and could be at least a No. 3 fantasy back.
Posted 3/05/2021 3:45 pm UTC
Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds gives the team confidence in his abilities as a starting running back if they don't re-sign RB Kenyan Drake.
Huddle Up: Everyone remembers the 27-126-3 game he had against the New York Giants two years ago. Edmonds can run and catch, and he would be an upside RB2 in PPR leagues if he winds up the starter.
Posted 3/03/2021 5:37 pm UTC
Updating previous reports, Arizona Cardinals DE J.J. Watt's two-year deal includes a $12 million signing bonus, a $14.5 million base salary in 2021, $13.5 million base salary in 2022 and a maximum of $31 million. He can earn $3 million in incentives for sacks. If he gets 10 sacks in 2021, it's worth $1 million with a $1 million escalator in 2022. Ten sacks in 2022 nets $1 million as well.
Huddle Up: Watt only had five sacks last year, but he still finished 11th in fantasy points at the position. He should have more potential for sacks with his new team and will be a midrange DL1 in IDP leagues.
Posted 3/02/2021 5:35 pm UTC
Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB James Conner is not likely to be re-signed in the offseason.
Huddle Up: The good: Conner has rushed for 4.3 yards per carry in 532 rushes in his career. He also has 22 rushing touchdowns over the last three years. However, he has not completed a full season in his career. He had 55 catches three years ago, but he really hasn't been able to repeat it through the air. He's RB2 material wherever he lands, but he'll be better to have in non-PPR leagues.
Posted 2/20/2021 10:22 pm UTC
Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins is only one of two receivers in the NFL to post at least 100 receptions in each of the last two seasons.
Huddle Up: Hopkins performs well whoever the quarterback is and showed good chemistry with Kyler Murray this season. He should continue to be one of the top receivers in the NFL as long as he is healthy and will be one of the first receivers drafted in fantasy leagues in 2021.
Posted 2/19/2021 6:27 pm UTC
Arizona Cardinals LB Chandler Jones has been the subject of a recent report speculating he could be an offseason salary-cap casualty, but general manager Steve Keim shot that down Friday, Feb. 19, in an interview with an Arizona radio station. 'I'll reject that,' Keim said, adding that the team is more inclined to wotk out a contract extension instead.
Posted 2/01/2021 3:36 am UTC
Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray threw 26 touchdowns and ran for 11 scores in 2020, becoming just the second quarterback in league history to throw for at least 25 touchdowns and score at least 10 rushing touchdowns in a single season.
Huddle Up: While Murray's production dipped a bit down the stretch, his versatility as a runner gives him a strong floor and the upside to be a top-five fantasy option at the position on any given week.
Posted 1/04/2021 12:32 am UTC
Arizona Cardinals QB Chris Streveler completed 11-of-16 passes for 105 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 17 against the Los Angeles Rams, subbing for the injured QB Kyler Murray (ankle), who left early. RB Kenyan Drake posted 10 grabs for 36 yards, while TE Dan Arnold led with 46 yards on three grabs. WR Trent Sherfield had four catches for 44 yards, WR DeAndre Hopkins ended up with 35 yards and four catches on 10 targets, while RB Jonathan Ward added an 11-yard touchdown on his only catch. LB Tanner Vallejo led the way on defense with a game-high 12 total stops, a sack and a quarterback hit.
Posted 1/03/2021 10:45 pm UTC
Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during the Week 17 game and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation to see if Murray is able to return. He is a weekly starting option when healthy.
Posted 1/03/2021 9:29 pm UTC
Cincinnati Bengals QB Brandon Allen went 6-for-21 for 48 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 17. RB Trayveon Williams rushed for 74 yards on four carries, while RB Samaje Perine rushed for 51 yards on nine carries. WR Tyler Boyd caught one pass for one yard on three targets, while WRs A.J. Green and Tee Higgins were held off the stat sheet.
Posted 1/03/2021 8:18 pm UTC
Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hip) is officially active for the Week 17 game.
Huddle Up: Edmonds did not practice this week, so he may have a limited role in the offense this week. Fantasy players can consider benching him if they have better options available.
Posted 1/03/2021 2:32 pm UTC
Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hip) is considered a game-time decision for Week 17's game against the Los Angeles Rams, though there is optimism that he will play, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Edmonds had been listed as questionable on the injury report despite not practicing at all during the week but since the Cardinals are in a must-win situation, it appears likely that he will suit up unless he suffers a setback in pregame warmups. If he is active for the game, he should be viewed as a somewhat risky flex option in deeper fantasy formats.
Posted 1/02/2021 11:01 pm UTC
Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Jan. 2.
Huddle Up: KeeSean Johnson likely will have a bigger role in the passing game with Kirk unavailable and Larry Fitzgerald a game-time decision. He could be a possible flex option in deeper fantasy leagues if players are looking for a late-minute replacement.
Posted 1/02/2021 5:10 am UTC
Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (leg) has a total of 29 rushing attempts in the last three games, logging at least eight carries in all three contests.
Huddle Up: Murray only had 15 total carries in the three games leading up to Week 14, but despite nursing a leg injury, he has been scrambling more in recent weeks. The rushing stats bolster his floor and his upside, and he will be a QB1 against the Rams in Week 17 with the Cardinals battling for a playoff spot.
Posted 1/02/2021 1:42 am UTC
Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Hopkins continues to be one of the top receivers in the NFL and is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.
Posted 1/02/2021 1:33 am UTC
Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hip) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is listed as questionable for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Edmonds will be a game-time decision this week, so fantasy players will need to monitor his status over the next few days. He may have a limited role since he did not practice this week, so fantasy players may want to keep him on the bench.
Posted 1/01/2021 10:39 pm UTC
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Green should see a few targets in the passing game this week but will be facing a tough Baltimore Ravens defense. He can be a possible flex option in deeper leagues but can also be avoided if better options are available.
Posted 1/01/2021 6:59 pm UTC
Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (hip) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 1, as he deals with a hip injury.
Huddle Up: Edmonds' last shot may come down to a game-time decision Sunday, and he would be a flex consideration if he's able to play. If not, it'll be Kenyan Drake's show in the Cards' backfield.
