• Andre Ellington - RB
    Posted 10/18/17 3:18pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quadriceps) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Ellington has been a big part of the team's passing game this season and has 28 receptions and 257 receiving yards in six games. He should be able to play in Week 7 and should be considered a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB
    Posted 10/16/17 10:01am ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson played 48-of-65 offensive snaps in Week 6 - his first game with the team since he was acquired from the New Orleans Saints earlier in the week.

    Huddle Up: It's a shocking workload for a player who looked like he had roughly four days to prepare, but the 32-year-old Peterson continued to defy logic with 134 yards rushing and two touchdowns against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He's back in the RB2 conversation in Week 7 as the Cardinals face a Los Angeles Rams run defense that has struggled to contain opposing running games all season long.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB
    Posted 10/15/17 8:07pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson finished with 26 carries for 134 yards and two touchdowns in a 38-33 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Playing from ahead against Tampa Bay's banged-up group of linebackers certainly helped Peterson pad his numbers, but it looks like he has a little more left in the tank than he was being given credit for. It might not hurt to try to sell high on Peterson after his big performance, but RB2 production isn't out of the question while David Johnson is out.

  • Carson Palmer - QB
    Posted 10/15/17 8:27pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer completed 18 of his 22 passes for 283 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in a 38-33 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Palmer had his best outing of the season, and it was probably no coincidence that Adrian Peterson made the run game credible for the first time all year. If Peterson can continue to provide balance, Palmer could sneak back into QB1 territory.

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR
    Posted 10/15/17 8:19pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald caught 10 of his 11 targets for 138 yards and a touchdown in a 38-33 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: The veteran continues to pile up targets, catches and yards, and he can be locked in as a WR2 heading into a Week 7 matchup with the Los Angeles Rams.

  • John Brown - WR
    Posted 10/13/17 1:42pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (quadriceps) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 13, and was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 6 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Brown is expected to play, but he is battling Larry Fitzgerald, Jaron Brown and perhaps JJ Nelson (hamstring) for targets, so don't expect much in the way of fantasy appeal. He has just 105 yards and a touchdown, converting just nine of his 24 targets for receptions through three games.

  • JJ Nelson - WR
    Posted 10/13/17 1:42pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (hamstring) was able to practice in full Friday, Oct. 13, and he was removed from the Week 6 injury report.

    Huddle Up: Nelson is in line to play against the Buccaneers, but he'll be fighting with John Brown, Jaron Brown and, of course, Larry Fitzgerald, for targets. Nelson has racked up 277 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 17 catches through four games. He is the second Cardinals wideout to target for fantasy purposes behind Fitz.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB
    Posted 10/12/17 8:47am ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson will not play on third downs, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

    Huddle Up: That was to be expected. Andre Ellington has received 24 targets on third down in the last two weeks. Peterson should be owned, but the expectations should be modest. Ellington keeps RB4 value in PPR formats.

  • John Brown - WR
    Posted 10/12/17 4:13pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (quadriceps) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Brown should be able to play this week even though he was limited during practice. He will have a solid role in the passing game and could be a flex option in some leagues even though he has not posted great numbers this season.

  • JJ Nelson - WR
    Posted 10/12/17 4:15pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Nelson has been able to play despite the injury and should be in uniform again this week. He is the deep threat for the Cardinals and can be a flex option in deeper leagues because of his big- play potential.

  • JJ Nelson - WR
    Posted 10/11/17 4:22pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: Nelson recorded 80 yards in Week 5 and will continue to receive targets in the passing game because of his big-play ability. He can be considered a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • John Brown - WR
    Posted 10/11/17 4:14pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (quadriceps) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: Brown has been targeted at least seven times in all three games he has played this season but has been held to under 50 yards in all of the games. He still has a role in the passing game but is only a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • David Johnson - RB
    Posted 10/11/17 5:51pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson's (wrist) earliest return date could be around Thanksgiving, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

    Huddle Up: Johnson is currently on the Reserve/Injured list and is still six to eight weeks away from playing again. Adrian Peterson and Andre Ellington will see time at running back with Peterson receiving most of the carries and Ellington being used in the passing game. Ellington can be a low-end No. 2 running back or flex option in point-per-reception leagues, while Peterson can be considered a flex option.

  • John Brown - WR
    Posted 10/8/17 6:43am ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (quadriceps) is expected to play in Week 5's game against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Brown was listed as questionable on the injury report and had been limited in practice throughout the week. He had three catches for 47 yards in his return to action versus the San Francisco 49ers in Week 4 and should be viewed as a viable flex option for Week 5, particularly if JJ Nelson (hamstring, tooth) is deactivated.

  • JJ Nelson - WR
    Posted 10/8/17 2:27pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson caught four passes for 80 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Nelson has been targeted at least six times in three of the five games this season but has been a bit inconsistent in terms of his receiving yards. He will continue to have a role in the passing game but should only be considered a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Andre Ellington - RB
    Posted 10/8/17 2:19pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington caught nine passes for 65 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Ellington has become a big part of the passing game over the last few weeks and should continue to have that role moving forward. He can be a flex option in most leagues next week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

  • Chris Johnson - RB
    Posted 10/8/17 2:16pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson rushed for 21 yards on nine carries against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Johnson received most of the carries during the game but was not able to do much on the ground. He probably will continue to be the starting running back but can be avoided in all leagues.

  • Carson Palmer - QB
    Posted 10/8/17 2:06pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer went 28-for-44 for 291 yards and one touchdown against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Palmer has thrown for at least 290 yards in each of his last four games and has five touchdowns and two interceptions during that span. He will be facing a solid Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense in Week 6 but can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

  • John Brown - WR
    Posted 10/8/17 2:36pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown caught two passes for 26 yards and one touchdown against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Brown has been targeted at least seven times in all three games this season and appears to be the No. 3 receiver for the Cardinals. He could be a flex option in deeper leagues but could also be benched if owners have better options to use.

  • Jaron Brown - WR
    Posted 10/8/17 2:32pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Jaron Brown caught three passes for 39 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Brown has been alternating good outings and bad outings this season and has been held to under 40 yards in three games in 2017. Brown can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option against most opponents.

  • Larry Fitzgerald - WR
    Posted 10/8/17 2:28pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald caught six passes for 51 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Fitzgerald is the main option in the Cardinals passing game and has been targeted at least 10 times in three games this season. He should be considered at least a No. 3 receiver against most opponents.

  • JJ Nelson - WR
    Posted 10/6/17 1:36pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (hamstring, tooth) was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 6, and is considered questionable for Week 5 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: Nelson was on the field last week, but his role was slightly diminished following the return of John Brown from injury. He remains a solid downfield target for Carson Palmer, but his fantasy appeal is rather limited to deeper leagues and formats awarding bonus points for longer scores.

  • John Brown - WR
    Posted 10/6/17 1:35pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (quadriceps) was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 6, and is listed as questionable for Week 5 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: Brown returned from injury last week and was used in a limited capacity. He might see more targets if JJ Nelson is inactive, but Brown's fantasy value is rather limited at the moment.

  • John Brown - WR
    Posted 10/5/17 3:07pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (quadriceps) partially participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 5.

    Huddle Up: Brown returned to the field last week and finished with 47 yards. He probably will serve as the No. 3 or No. 4 receiver for Cardinals and see a handful of targets. He has a chance to be a flex option on some leagues as a bye week replacement.

  • JJ Nelson - WR
    Posted 10/5/17 3:12pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (hamstring, tooth) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 5.

    Huddle Up: Nelson saw his targets drop last week with John Brown back in the lineup and finished that game with 34 yards. He has fantasy value because of his big-play ability, but owners in most leagues can avoid him this week.

  • John Brown - WR
    Posted 10/4/17 3:06pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (quadriceps) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: Brown returned last week after missing a few games and finished with three passes and 47 yards. He will have a role in the passing game if he plays in Week 5 but probably can be avoided in most leagues.

  • JJ Nelson - WR
    Posted 10/4/17 3:12pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (hamstring, tooth) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: Nelson received four targets last week and will still receive some targets in the passing game even though John Brown has returned to the lineup. He has the potential to be a deep threat for the Cardinals but probably is not a great option for fantasy owners.

  • Andre Ellington - RB
    Posted 10/4/17 8:32pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington has garnered the most targets of any running back in the NFL through the season's first four weeks, drawing 30 throws from QB Carson Palmer. That's one ahead of Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen and Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey.

    Huddle Up: This is actually a very telling stat about Ellington's notable potential moving forward, as this also takes into account Week 1, which the Arizona tailback barely played in. Over the last two weeks, Ellington has racked up 14 catches on 22 total targets alone, and with David Johnson being out for possibly the rest of the fantasy season, that makes the five-year veteran a must-own commodity in all PPR formats and deep leagues.

  • John Brown - WR
    Posted 10/1/17 5:20am ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (quadriceps) is expected to play in Week 4's game against the San Francisco 49ers, although he will not be at 100 percent and will likely see a limited number of snaps.

    Huddle Up: Brown was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He should be avoided in daily fantasy formats and should be considered no more than a flex option in deeper seasonal leagues this week.

  • John Brown - WR
    Posted 10/1/17 12:51pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (quad) is active Sunday, Oct. 1, against the San Francisco 49ers, but he may not play every snap.

    Huddle Up: You may want to keep Brown shelved in your regular league and avoid him in daily fantasy contests. His numbers will likely be down, especially without regular participation.
