Arizona Cardinals news, rumors and injuries
Tue, 30 Aug 2016 23:13:08 -0700
Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (concussion) has been medically cleared to play in the team's final preseason game on Thursday, Sept. 2, though head coach Bruce Arians may hold him out until the regular season opener.
Fantasy Tip: Brown might not have the name value of Larry Fitzgerald or Michael Floyd, but he was the steadier hand in 2015, and he certainly has more room to grow entering just his third NFL campaign. Brown is an interesting WR3 with upside.

Arizona Cardinals FS Tyrann Mathieu (knee) was cleared to play in the team's preseason finale on Thursday, Sept. 1. He's unlikely to return to game action until Week 1 against the New England Patriots, however, when head coach Bruce Arians expects Mathieu will be "ready to roll."

Fantasy Tip: Brown has not played yet during the preseason and he could be iffy for Week 1 if this trend continues. He really came onto the scene last year and is a low-end WR2 consideration after tallying over 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns in 2015 despite being the Cardinals' No. 3 wide receiver.

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer suffered a chipped tooth when his helmet was knocked off against the Houston Texans Sunday, Aug. 28, but he said he was fine. He completed five of his nine passes for 64 yards and two interceptions.
Fantasy Tip: Palmer hasn't been sharp in the preseason, but Arizona's offense has too much firepower for the struggles to continue. You should feel comfortable entering 2016 with Palmer as your fantasy starter.

Fantasy Tip: It's not uncommon for veterans to sit even for the preseason dress rehearsal, especially if they're not fully healthy. Fitzgerald should be ready for the regular season opener, though, and should be drafted as a low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 with added value in PPR formats.

Fantasy Tip: Brown's concussion symptoms have lingered, and he probably won't see any action until the regular season begins, assuming he's OK to play then. If he can play all 16 games, he has the ability to achieve WR2 status again this season.

Arizona Cardinals DT Robert Nkemdiche (ankle) is expected to receive significant playing time in the preseason game against the Houston Texans Sunday, Aug. 28, because he needs to catch up on things, according to head coach Bruce Arians.
