Fantasy Tip: Floyd's status for Week 4 against the Rams is up in the air. If he cannot play it would be good news for Larry Fitzgerald and John Brown, who would see a bump in targets. It's just mid-week, however, so don't write off Floyd just yet.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald appears to be good to go for the Week 4 game against the Rams in Glendale. Los Angeles ranks 17th in the league against the pass, allowing 266.0 yards per game with four passing scores allowed through three games. Treat Fitz as a low-end WR2 heading into Week 4 in most fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: There were some mild concerns after Chris Johnson (16 carries) got more work than David Johnson (12) in Week 2 that the former might have a larger role going forward, but Week 3 proves D. Johnson is among the few legit every-down backs in the NFL and a RB1 in all fantasy formats.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd is one of the bigger names to keep an eye on heading into Week 4. If he stays limited in practice throughout the week then it could lead up to a game-time decision. If Floyd can't take the field, then John Brown would assume the No. 2 wide receiver position behind Larry Fitzgerald. In that case, Fitz would be worthy of PPR1 status, while Brown would make for a borderline WR2.

Arizona Cardinals TE Troy Niklas (wrist) is dealing with what could be a severe wrist injury, while P Drew Butler (Achilles', ankle) will miss some time with a sprained Achilles' tendon and ankle injury, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (head) was cleared on the sideline to reenter the game in Week 3 Buffalo Bills, but he experienced a headache on Monday, Sept. 26, and entered the league's concussion protocol.
Fantasy Tip: Floyd has officially only missed one game in four seasons with the Cardinals, but he always seems to be struggling with injuries. With John Brown working through his own concussion issues, there may be work soon for Jaron Brown and J.J. Nelson. Larry Fitzgerald may be in line for a busy day in Week 4 versus the Los Angeles Rams and is a recommended DFS option for that contest.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald has been targeted at least 10 times in each of the first three games of the season and continues to be a reliable option for fantasy owners. He should be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver most weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd bounced back from a quiet Week 2 with 65 yards after he was targeted 11 times during the game. Floyd will have a solid role in Arizona's passing game as long as he is healthy and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Brown was not much of a factor in the first two games of the season but led the team in receiving yards in Week 3. He will continue to have a solid role in the passing game and can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in most leagues.
Sun, 25 Sep 2016 14:05:18 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Johnson has been a big contributor on offense over the first three games of the season and will continue to receive significant touches moving forward. Johnson should be a No. 1 running back for owners against most opponents.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer played well in the first two games of the season but struggled against the Bills defense. He is scheduled to play the Los Angeles Rams in Week 4 and should be a solid starting candidate in most fantasy leagues.
