Sam Bradford - QBPosted 4/19/18 1:21pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Sam Bradford (knee) is not having any problems with his knee and has been limited during offseason workouts because there is no reason to rush things in April, according to head coach Steve Wilks.
Huddle Up: Bradford probably will wait until training camp before he is a full participant in practices. He has had some success during his career but has dealt with many injuries since entering the NFL. He probably can be considered a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 4/11/18 3:30pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson said he believes the Cardinals can have the top offense in the NFL in 2018 if QB Sam Bradford can stay healthy.
Huddle Up: Johnson should be ready for the start of the 2018 season and will be a big part of the running and passing game. He likely will be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues. Bradford has struggled with injuries during his entire career and should only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.
David Johnson - RBPosted 4/2/18 11:35pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) has officially been medically cleared and will not be limited when the club begins their offseason program.
Huddle Up: Johnson missed all but one game a year ago but it looks like he'll be ready to roll at full health going into the new campaign. Considering his tremendous second season when he totaled 20 touchdowns, rushed for 1,239 yards on 293 carries and accumulated 879 more yards through the air on 80 catches, Johnson still merits a very early pick in fantasy drafts.
David Johnson - RBPosted 3/27/18 5:15am ET
Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) is expected to be cleared in time for organized team activities next month, according to head coach Steve Wilks.
Huddle Up: Johnson will be returning to a different situation with a new head coach and Sam Bradford, who is always hurt, under center. The latter could be good for Johnson because Bradford does a lot of dink-and-dunk passing, which could bring DJ back to a high-end RB1 quickly in PPR formats.
Drew Stanton - QBPosted 3/25/18 5:20pm ET
Free-agent QB Drew Stanton (Cardinals) signed a two-year contract with the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, March 25. No financial details were disclosed.
Huddle Up: Stanton has little fantasy value unless Tyrod Taylor proves ineffective or is injured, but he will bring a veteran clubhouse presence to a team that was lost in 2017.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 3/16/18 7:05pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Sam Bradford (knee) said his knee is feeling strong despite all the injuries during his career. 'I've been through a lot with it, but all I can tell you is how I feel right now and really where it's gone since I had the procedure in November,' Bradford said. 'It's done nothing but get better and I feel good at the moment.'
Huddle Up: Bradford will have some weapons to work with in Arizona, but his health is a major concern. Grab him as a QB2 and hope he can last the season.
Jaron Brown - WRPosted 3/16/18 8:28pm ET
Free-agent WR Jaron Brown (Cardinals) has agreed to terms with the Seattle Seahawks Friday, March 16, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Seattle lost Jimmy Graham and Paul Richardson in free agency, but even with Seattle turning the offense over to Russell Wilson, Brown figures to be a bench option for fantasy owners.
Adrian Peterson - RBPosted 3/13/18 2:11pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson was officially released Tuesday, March 13.
Huddle Up: Peterson gave the Cardinals some quality games, but he'll turn 33 years old next week and is comfortably over the hill in running back years. He may yet play a complementary role somewhere else, but he is merely a faint blip on the fantasy radar at this point in his storied career.
John Brown - WRPosted 3/13/18 2:26pm ET
Free-agent WR John Brown (Cardinals) is in serious negotiations with the Baltimore Ravens, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Mike Wallace and Michael Campanaro are both impending free agents, so the Ravens could be due for more depth at the wide receiver position. Brown's deep-threat ability coupled with Joe Flacco's arm strength is an intriguing proposition, but Brown's healthy history makes him a wary fantasy prospect.
John Brown - WRPosted 3/13/18 4:07pm ET
Arizona Cardinals impending free-agent WR John Brown plans to sign with the Baltimore Ravens, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Brown has dealt with health problems over the last few seasons but can be a deep threat when healthy. He could be a late-round pick in fantasy drafts but will not be a weekly starting option.
Adrian Peterson - RBPosted 3/12/18 5:07am ET
Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson is expected to be released Monday, March 12, according to a source. He is due a $750,000 bonus on the third day of the league year. He could still return to Arizona later.
Huddle Up: Peterson's fantasy value is pretty murky right now. If he returns to Arizona, he'd be an RB4 for depth.
Adrian Peterson - RBPosted 3/12/18 10:45pm ET
Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Cardinals) said the Arizona Cardinals doctor told him that his neck is 'completely healed' after reviewing scans and that he is 'still looking forward to playing next season.'
Huddle Up: Peterson's tenure with the Saints at the onset of the 2017 season turned out to be a huge flop, though that was more so because they had Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram carrying the load. When AP arrived in Arizona, he was decent and exhibited flashes of his old self, so perhaps there is still something left in the tank. Of course, that hinges on just where he ends up next.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 2/15/18 7:00am ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald announced Thursday, Feb. 15, that he'll return for the 2018 season.
Huddle Up: He'll be 35 in August, but he has continued to be a dangerous possession receiver the last few years. He has averaged 108 grabs for 1,131 yards and seven scores per season the last three years. There are questions about who will throw to him, but he has remained consistent despite that. Look at him as a high-end WR2 in fantasy.
Drew Stanton - QBPosted 2/13/18 11:58am ET
Arizona Cardinals QBs Blaine Gabbert and Drew Stanton will likely be competing with another quarterback this offseason for the starting quarterback job. Team owner Michael Bidwill said the Cardinals will be aggressive in their search for a new starting quarterback following the retirement of QB Carson Palmer.
Huddle Up: Gabbert and Stanton fall far from the elite quarterback tree. Whether it's through free agency or the draft, Arizona will address the position this offseason. Odds are, though, that whoever starts will not be a reliable starting fantasy quarterback.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 2/12/18 11:35pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald's $11 million salary became guaranteed on Friday, Feb. 9. However, this does not impact his retirement decision. If he chooses to retire, he would not receive that money.
Huddle Up: A decision from Fitzgerald is expected before the end of the month. If he indeed returns, he'll remain a WR2 going into next season, though there's a decent possibility he sees his numbers drop based on some significant changes in Arizona. Fitzgerald will have a new starting quarterback throwing to him -- a position still not filled -- while also playing under a new head coach that could bring out all sorts of variables.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 2/9/18 11:08am ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald's $11 million base salary for 2018 will be guaranteed if he is remains on the roster Friday, Feb. 9. Fitzgerald still has not decided if he will play next season or retire.
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald said during Super Bowl week that he would decide on his future in a week or two, so owners should monitor the situation over the next few days. He would still be a solid fantasy receiver in all leagues if he continues playing.
Carson Palmer - QBPosted 2/7/18 5:15pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer was placed on the Reserve/Retired list Monday, Feb. 5.
Huddle Up: The Cardinals will be looking for a new starting quarterback this offseason and probably will acquire a veteran in free agency or a trade. Owners should keep an eye on the situation because their quarterback has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some leagues.
David Johnson - RBPosted 2/7/18 9:24pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) has been fully cleared to resume all football-related activities.
Huddle Up: No one had it worse in 2017 than owners of David Johnson, who was lost for the year in only the third quarter of the first game of the NFL campaign. Fortunately, he'll at least be 100 percent for the start of next season. The only thing is that the offense Johnson will be playing for appears murky right now -- the Cardinals have a new head coach and it remains to be seen who will start under center for them in 2018.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 2/4/18 11:50am ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald said he expects to decide on his playing future in the next week or two.
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald posted solid numbers in 2017 but probably would be working with a new quarterback if he decides to return next season. He would still be a solid fantasy option if he continues his playing career and can be at least a No. 3 receiver for owners.
Adrian Peterson - RBPosted 2/3/18 10:21am ET
Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson will turn 33 years old in March, but he recently told the St. Paul Pioneer Press' Chris Tomasson he wants at least four more years.
Huddle Up: Peterson is a physical marvel and was able to carry the Arizona offense on his shoulders on occasion after he was traded from the New Orleans Saints, but any running back wanting to play into his mid-30s is living on borrowed time. Injuries are also a major concern. The Cardinals are expected to release Peterson, meaning he'll need to learn his third offense in about a year if he plays in 2018. While it is never wise to bet against him, Peterson is nearing the end of the line as a useful fantasy option.
Jaron Brown - WRPosted 1/31/18 10:50am ET
Arizona Cardinals impending free-agent WR Jaron Brown (knee) is not expected to be re-signed. Arizona sports radio host Mike Jurecki believes Brown is due for a big payday assuming he hits the market.
Huddle Up: Brown has been overshadowed by Larry Fitzgerald and John Brown in his time in Arizona. He is coming off a career year, though, tallying 477 yards and four touchdowns. He's not much more than a deep threat, but he has shown he can be fantasy relevant. He could be much more relevant on the right team.
Adrian Peterson - RBPosted 1/31/18 11:31am ET
Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson is expected to be released, according to Fox Sports Radio's Mike Jurecki. Peterson's salary cap hit would be $3.5 million for 2018.
Huddle Up: With David Johnson returning and Peterson turning 33 years old and injury prone, it makes sense for the Cardinals to part ways with the veteran running back. It's unlikely that Peterson will ever be fantasy relevant again considering his age and injury history.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 1/31/18 6:35pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald won't play for another team if he decides to return, according to his father Larry Fitzgerald Sr. in an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio. 'If it's not with the Cardinals, we've seen the last of Larry Fitzgerald in the National Football League wearing No. 11,' he said. Fitzgerald Sr. added that his son 'really wants to get a championship ring, there's no doubt about that.'
Huddle Up: While other reports have Fitzgerald leaning towards returning for his 15th season, this one might indicate the opposite, as it sounds like winning would be the main reason for him to keep playing. However, the Cardinals are in a different situation now, having a new head coach and starting quarterback going into Week 1 of next year, and with the increasing difficulty of the NFC West, Arizona suddenly could be on a rebuilding trail. We'll hopefully find out soon.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 1/29/18 9:38pm ET
Arizona Cardinals offensive coordinator Mike McCoy is anticipating the return of WR Larry Fitzgerald next season, as during his introductory press conference with the club on Monday, Jan. 29, he 'sure sounded like a coach expecting Fitz to play.'
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald will be 35-years-old going into next year but the future Hall-of-Famer apparently still has plenty left in the tank if this past season was any indication. Even despite losing starting quarterback Carson Palmer to injury, Fitzgerald managed to rack up his third consecutive year with 100-plus receptions and more than 1,000 yards. Thus, no matter who is under center for Arizona in 2018, Fitzgerald will be headed into the new campaign as a WR2 if he keeps playing.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 1/23/18 11:48am ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald has still not decided as to whether or not he will retire this offseason, according to new head coach Steve Wilks. Fitzgerald just completed his 14th season in the NFL and will turn 35 years old before the 2018 regular season begins.
Huddle Up: Even in his mid-30s, Fitzgerald is an ageless wonder. Without Carson Palmer he still managed to achieve WR1 status in 2017. As long as he's healthy, and doesn't hang up the cleats, he's a low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 with added value in PPR leagues.
David Johnson - RBPosted 1/18/18 5:26pm ET
Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) has his strength and full range of motion back with his injured wrist, which is now healed. He's focused mostly on making sure he's 'ready to play' in 2018 and that he is as healthy as possible.
Huddle Up: There was arguably no bigger tragedy in fantasy football this year than the unfortunate season-ending injury to Johnson, who was one of the first guys off the board in pretty much all drafts. Making matters worse, the 26-year-old will be returning to unfamiliar surroundings, having a new quarterback and head coach when the new campaign kicks off. Regardless, Johnson should remain one of the highest-ranked running backs going into next season.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 1/12/18 1:39pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald said he would like to see who the Cardinals hire as their next head coach before he decides if he will play in 2018.
Huddle Up: Owners should monitor the situation over the next few weeks to see if Fitzgerald will play again. He is still a solid receiver and could be a No. 3 fantasy receiver next season if he plays.
Carson Palmer - QBPosted 1/2/18 2:10pm ET
Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer announced his retirement Tuesday, Jan. 2, after 15 seasons in the NFL.
Huddle Up: It's a logical move and makes quarterback a top priority for the Cardinals this offseason. They'll have a chance to draft one in what is a deep quarterback draft class, but the bigger question now is what will Larry Fitzgerald do? He can succeed with anyone as he's proven over his career, but he and Palmer had some of the best chemistry in the league after playing together for five years.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 12/31/17 7:35pm ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald tied a career high with 109 receptions this season, topping 100 catches for the third straight season.
Huddle Up: Fitzgerald is signed through next season, but he has yet to commit to playing. If he does return, he is still more than capable of providing WR2 numbers in PPR formats.
Larry Fitzgerald - WRPosted 12/29/17 5:56am ET
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald has been targeted once every three pass attempts in the four games QB Drew Stanton has started, according to Pro Football Focus. Fitzgerald has accounted for 44.2 percent of Stanton's passing yardage.
Huddle Up: Fitz has been consistently brilliant the last three years, and his 101-1,101-6 line has kept him a valuable WR2 despite the walls of the offense crumbling around him. He faces a banged-up Seattle Seahawks defense in Week 17.
