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 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 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 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.
