Arizona Cardinals news, rumors and injuries
Mon, 05 Oct 2015 12:48:14 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The fact that Ellington was close to playing in Week 4 more than likely means that Ellington will be able to play in Week 5. Chris Johnson and David Johnson should still see the field, too, though. Plus, Ellington could be a little rusty. There are probably better running back options this week.

Fantasy Tip: Bruce Arians promised to get Floyd ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) more involved earlier in the week and he made good on his word. Still, he has a while to go before FantasyScore players can trust him again.

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson ran three times for 18 yards in the Week 4 game against the St. Louis Cardinals, but most of his damage came through the air. He finished with four receptions for 63 yards and a touchdowns while being targeted 10 times.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) was a tremendous FantasyScore option for those who rolled the dice on him. He only had seven touches but he made the most of his opportunities.

Fantasy Tip: Brown ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) made it through the entire game without any setbacks and appears to be a fine FantasyScore play going forward.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) had his third 300-yard passing day in four starts, but it was his first game without throwing at least two touchdowns. He remains a fantastic FantasyScore option week in and week out.
Sun, 04 Oct 2015 20:42:22 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) didn't find the end zone, but he has had at least 87 receiving yards in all four games. He looks entrenched as the team's top target, and he should be a strong WR2 going forward.
Sun, 04 Oct 2015 20:33:39 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) has been solid since taking over for Andre Ellington, topping 70 yards in three straight games. He has probably earned himself some carries even after Ellington returns, but Johnson is only worth using at FantasyScore while he has the backfield to himself.
Sun, 04 Oct 2015 12:34:24 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Chris Johnson ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) and David Johnson ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) will both see playing time during the game and are solid starting options for fantasy owners.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Ellington ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) will dress for the game. Chris Johnson ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) and David Johnson ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) would continue to share time if Ellington misses another game and both are starting options for owners.

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald leads all receivers in touchdowns (five), is tied for second in first downs (19) and ranks fifth in yards (333) and eighth in catches (23) after three weeks. His five touchdowns in the last two weeks are a career high for him in back-to-back games. A scout for an NFC East team said Fitzgerald's legs look fresh and rejuvenated. Fitzgerald has bought into head coach Bruce Arians' system and has successfully learned to play in the slot while also doing more blocking against linebackers and safeties. Arians said the difference is that Fitzgerald is playing fully healthy after dealing with two knee injuries last year. Fitzgerald had 22 snaps from the slot for six catches and 99 yards in Week 3 in the first half alone. "It's been an adjustment," Fitzgerald said of his new role. "You're definitely more sore after games. But it also creates more opportunities for me in the passing game. When I come down in motion, you don't know if I'm blocking or if I'm going out for a pass. It's created a lot more easy catches for me. You're closer to the quarterback, so there's less margin for error. I'm also a bigger guy against much smaller guys in the nickel, so the catches are a little easier."
Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) will not be able to keep this pace all season long, but he's also definitely not done after a down year in 2015. His new role should keep him relevant in point-per-reception leagues for most of the year as long as he's healthy. It never hurts to see what you could get on the open market in your league for him, too, if you want to consider selling high.

Fantasy Tip: So it looks like Ellington ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) is expected to play this weekend. Be careful, though, as head coach Bruce Arians still plans to give Chris Johnson ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) starter's repetitions this weekend. The Rams' defensive line is their strength, though, so nobody in the Arizona backfield is particular intriguing in daily games this week, and the return of Ellington further complicates the picture.

Fantasy Tip: Brown ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) carries considerable risk for FantasyScore gamers this weekend with the Cardinals game having a late start. Also, Brown has become a second fiddle to a healthy Larry Fitzgerald after three games.

Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (shoulder) was ruled out for Week 4 against the St. Louis Rams. OG Mike Iupati (knee), LB Alex Okafor (shoulder) and LB LaMarr Woodley (quadriceps) are probable. Nelson did not practice Friday, Oct. 2, while the rest were full participants.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) is expected to share the ball with Chris Johnson ($5,100, 10.2% of cap). The Rams' run defense is among the worst in the league, but neither of these Cards RBs are real good plays on FantasyScore for the price.
