If the Pittsburgh Steelers trade QB Ben Roethlisberger, the Arizona Cardinals could be a landing spot as Roethlisberger and head coach Bruce Arians would be reunited.

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said he would like to get RB Andre Ellington around 20 touches a game. Arians talked about Ellington being used as a wide receiver to get him out in space.

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians called his offense "putrid" in their Week 4 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Arians is shocked at how long it has taken his team to pick up the offensive playbook. "I haven't seen it take this long ever," he said. Arizona has converted just two of 21 third downs in their two victories this year. The issues have been linked to dropped passes, bad throws, poor protection and poorly run routes.

Arizona Cardinals DT Darnell Dockett (groin), LB Jasper Brinkley (groin), OG Daryn Colledge (leg) and LB Vic So'oto (concussion) suffered injuries in Week 4, but head coach Bruce Arians said none of them were major injuries. LB Kevin Minter (hamstring) DT Dan Williams (personal) are expected to return to practice this week.

Updating a precious report, Arizona Cardinals FS Rashad Johnson (finger) is being considered day-to-day, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Arizona Cardinals FS Tyrann Mathieu could be on the field at the same time as CB Patrick Peterson returning punts, or giving Peterson a break if the defense has been on the field for an extended period. That said, coach Bruce Arians said Peterson will be on the field every the other team is punting. "(Patrick) can't get his hands on the ball enough for me," Arians said. "As long as the other team is punting, he's going to be back there. And hopefully they will be punting a lot."

Arizona Cardinals TE Rob Housler could have a big role in the offense this year and ranks as a breakout candidate. Head coach Bruce Arians said he saw Housler as a big receiver, potentially as opposed to a tight end, when he came out of college.
Fantasy Tip: Arians' mixed record on using tight ends causes us to temper our expectations here, but the fact that Housler resembles more of a wideout than a true tight end should work in his favor, ala Dwayne Allen last year in Indy. Housler could offer some allure as a TE2 in leagues where carrying a pair is logical.

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said on NFL AM that "there's no doubt" RB Rashard Mendenhall would be the featured back if the season started Wednesday, June 19. Arians is shying away from the notion that this is a time share. Mendenhall is also ready to go after fighting Achilles' tendonitis last year following early-2012 knee surgery.
Fantasy Tip: Hard to believe Mendy turns 26 today. Arians' history with Mendenhall will help with the transition, and as long as he's healthy, he'll take the lion's share of carries away from Ryan Williams, Andre Ellington and Stepfan Taylor. Mendenhall is a second fantasy back that might be the victim of overvaluation.

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said he would like the players to get in better shape for training camp because some players struggled with their conditioning during offseason workouts. "We're not in the best shape," Arians said. "We've got to get in better condition to play as fast as we want to play, especially offensively."

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians told reporters that when he was with the Indianapolis Colts as offensive coordinator and eventually interim head coach last season, WR Reggie Wayne started to embrace the idea of lining up at different spots along the line of scrimmage. Arians said WR Larry Fitzgerald has welcomed the idea, as well, as he's being tried in the "X," "Z" and "F" positions.
Fantasy Tip: Of course, Wayne had Andrew Luck throwing to him. Can Carson Palmer offer similar hope? Fitzgerald is a borderline WR1 (safer as a 2) but, if he falls, could reward those willing to pounce on a reduced price.
