Arizona Cardinals WR Andy Isabella is a player that head coach Kliff Kingsbury has identified as someone he wants to use more often in 2020.
'I have to do a better job of expanding his role and finding ways to get him on the field and get him utilized,' Kingsbury told reporters Sunday, Aug. 30.

Arizona Cardinals WR Andy Isabella is more confident entering his second NFL season, according to wide receivers coach David Raih. 'Last year was a huge growth period for him,' Raih said. 'Right now, he's just more confident and he's playing more loosely. His technique is more natural. He's just got a successful approach at life. Because of his preparation, you just trust him.'
Huddle Up: Isabella, a second-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, caught just nine of 13 targets for 189 yards and one touchdown as a rookie. The offseason addition of DeAndre Hopkins will further limit his opportunity for playing time in 2020, and he won't be a fantasy option unless someone ahead of him on the depth chart suffers an injury.

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 WRs Andy Isabella and KeeSean Johnson will not increased usage over the season's final two weeks, according to AZCardinals.com's Darren Urban.
Huddle Up: Arizona spent three draft picks on receivers, but none of them have done a whole lot this season. With no plans to give them more chances over the final two weeks, the team will be counting on the rookies to continue their development during the offseason.

Arizona Cardinals WR Andy Isabella posted three catches for 78 yards on three targets in Week 10 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Isabella has slowly been seeing an increase in opportunities in the offense, as the rookie is being trusted more and more. He has speed to burn and could wind up as a WR4 in all fantasy leagues by season's end. He and the Cards have a tough matchup in Week 11 on the road against the San Francisco 49ers.

Arizona Cardinals WR Andy Isabella caught one pass for 88 yards and a touchdown against the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday, Oct. 31.
Huddle Up: Isabella was targeted just once Thursday night, but he made it count. The rookie second-rounder hasn't had much of a role thus far, but perhaps this is the impetus the team needs to put him on the field more. It's something to at least keep an eye on.

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 WR Andy Isabella will be more involved in the offense moving forward, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury. 'I like where he's heading,' Kingsbury said. 'It has nothing to do with us being disappointed. His work ethic is through the roof, and his talent is through the roof. We'll get him going.'
Huddle Up: Isabella has carried the ball three times this year, but he has yet to record a reception or even be targeted in the passing game. Even if his role starts to grow, it would be a surprise to see him become a viable fantasy option in redraft leagues this season. Isabella is a dynasty league stash candidate for now.

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.
