Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if he is dealing with an injury. Gresham probably will be the No. 2 tight end for the Cardinals this season but will not have much fantasy value.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington flashed his upside as a rookie and then averaged 6.4 yards per rushing attempt in 2015. However, he's behind David Johnson and likely Chris Johnson on the depth chart, which will limit his opportunities. He's worth a look late in deep drafts because of how dangerous he is with the ball in his hands, but an injury to another back is likely needed for Ellington to be a potential starting option.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson emerged as a RB1 one last year, and it is unlikely he will give the coaching staff a reason to decrease his touches in 2016. He should be one of the first running backs off the board.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer carries some injury risk, but he has the weapons around him to deliver another solid season of QB1 production.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald seems unlikely to retire anytime soon. "Just trying to prepare for the next phase in your life, but I have a lot of good football left in me. How long I will play, I don't know. I feel great. I can still play at a high level. I just have to take it one year at a time and I got a really fantastic team I'm a part of," Fitzgerald said.
Fantasy Tip: The 32-year-old wideout has had a Hall of Fame career and rebounded in a big way working out of the slot a lot in 2016 with 109 catches for 1,215 yards and nine touchdowns. It was his first 100-catch season since 2007 and only the third of his career. It'll surely be tough for him to repeat numbers like that this year, but in Arizona's high-powered offense, he can still do damage as long as Carson Palmer is healthy. Consider Fitz a decent low-end WR2 or high-end WR3.

Arizona Cardinals SS Tyvon Branch is likely to serve as a starter for the regular season opener. He is expected to replace the departed Rashad Johnson (Titans). FS Tony Jefferson is likely to start with FS Tyrann Mathieu (knee) targeting the Week 1 opener, but anything but a certainty.

Arizona Cardinals FS Tyrann Mathieu (knee) enters training camp on the mend for the second time in three years. He suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in Week 15 last year. He has surgery and is targeting a Week 1 return. He may not see any contact until then, and the team likely will be very careful with him to get the type of impact this season he had last season.
