Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson rushed for 45 yards on 11 carries and also caught one pass for 10 yards during the final preseason game Thursday, Sept. 3. Johnson showed occasional explosiveness during the game and was an effective pass blocker.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) likely will make the team after his performance, but his role on offense is still uncertain. Owners on FantasyScore may want to see how he is used before considering him for their lineups.

Arizona Cardinals PK Chandler Catanzaro missed two extra points during the final preseason game Thursday, Sept. 3, but head coach Bruce Arians said he is not worried about Catanzaro. Catanzaro went 5-for-8 in his field goal attempts during the preseason.
Fantasy Tip: Catanzaro could be a fantasy option for owners since the Cardinals have the chance to have a solid offense. He finished tied for eighth in the NFL with 29 field goals made last season and could be a low-end No. 1 kicker.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) has missed about a month because of dislocated fingers but has been working his way back. He likely will have to practice at some point next week to have a chance to play. Floyd would be facing an injured New Orleans Saints secondary, but owners on FantasyScore may want to use a healthier option.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has missed the last two preseason games because of the injury but is on track to see playing time in the final preseason game. Johnson has a good chance to make the roster and could be part of a committee at running back. Johnson could be a late-round option in deeper leagues if he makes the roster.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd should be considered questionable for Week 1 because of the injury, so owners will need to check on his practice participation next week. Floyd probably will not miss a lot of time and should see regular targets this season. Floyd could be a solid middle-round option for owners.

Arizona Cardinals FS Tyrann Mathieu has believed in himself even when the critics were seemingly overwhelming. "He thinks he can do anything," LB Kevin Minter said. "He thinks he can beat everybody up. Hit everybody. He's that guy. He will come at you, and that's the mentality he brings to the field." Minter said that mentality encourages the team and gives them a contagious confidence. Head coach Bruce Arians is happy with his decision to give the confident Mathieu a second chance following off-field issues. "I get the most pleasure out of him," Arians said, "seeing him get his second chance and what he's done with it."

Fantasy Tip: The Cardinals are having health issues with their tight ends as Troy Niklas also has a hamstring injury. Darren Fells could be the sneaky starter to begin the regular season if Gresham and Niklas keep missing time. None of them are worth drafting as your starting fantasy tight end.
