Arizona Cardinals news, rumors and injuries
Fri, 24 Oct 2014 09:53:20 -0700
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald has at least one touchdown (10 total) and averages 6.7 catches for 107 yards in six career games against the Philadelphia Eagles, his Week 8 opponent. However, Fitzgerald is tempering his expectations this time around, as he knows he isn't the target magnet he once was. He's only on pace for 61 catches for 755 yards this season. Head coach Bruce Arians isn't concerned with anyone on the team building their stats, and the offense thrives on spreading the ball around. Only RB Andre Ellington (25 catches) has more than Fitzgerald on the team.
Fantasy Tip: Regardless of the fact that Fitzgerald ($5,900; 11.8% of cap) isn't the bonafide No. 1 receiver on this team, he's still a good play at FantasyScore this weekend against the Eagles.

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) said the partially torn tendon in his foot probably won't feel better until after the year. "I understand it's never going to feel good," Ellington said. "It's probably not going to feel good until January or February or whenever the season is over with."
Fantasy Tip: Despite the nagging injury, Ellington has topped 90 yards from scrimmage in three straight games, and his versatility as a runner and a pass-catcher makes him a steady fantasy option. The Cardinals have a solid matchup in Week 8 against a Philadelphia defense ranked outside the top 20 against the run and the pass, and Ellington ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) should push 100 total yards yet again.

Fantasy Tip: Brown ($3,200, 6.4%) expects to play, and he has a favorable matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 8. However, you shouldn't lean on Brown for anything more than a low-priced flier. He played in just 44 of 75 offensive snaps last week.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) has been resting in practice the past few weeks, but it hasn't hindered his game-day performances. Expect a solid game from Ellington in FantasyScore contests given his favorable matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Brown ($3,200) is cheap at FantasyScore, and he's a deep sleeper option against an Eagles defense that has been quite generous against the pass this year.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington will battle his foot injury for the rest of the year. However, it hasn't really been a factor recently, and his matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles is a perfect one to take advantage of at FantasyScore. Ellington costs $6,900 (13.8% of cap).

Fantasy Tip: Brown costs just $3,200 (6.4% of cap) at FantasyScore in Week 8. The Cardinals have an excellent matchup for receivers against the Philadelphia Eagles, so consider Brown if you're looking for a wild card.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington has been playing well while dealing with the injury, so he should be ready to play in Week 8. Ellington has a price of $6,900 on FantasyScore and may be a good starting option since he helps in the running and passing game.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer has already looked good since returning from a nerve issue in his shoulder, throwing for a combined 503 yards and four touchdowns in two starts. He will take up 14.6% of the cap ($7,300) at FantasyScore in Week 8, and he should post another solid stat line against a Philadelphia defense ranked 23rd against the pass. For fantasy owners that don't want to pay top dollar for a quarterback, Palmer should make a nice mid-level alternative.
