Arizona Cardinals news, rumors and injuries
Tue, 01 Dec 2015 17:20:20 -0800
Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson has head coach Bruce Arians' vote of confidence heading into Week 13. Arians said he has all the confidence in the world in Johnson starting at running back, partly due to the fact that Arians believes Johnson has improved his ball security.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) isn't officially the starter yet, but Chris Johnson is on IR and Andre Ellington is nursing turf toe, so Johnson could very well be starting this week. He doesn't have the best matchup in the world against the St. Louis Rams, but Johnson is quite the versatile running back and is still worth starting in FantasyScore lineups.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson (leg) was placed on the short-term Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Dec. 1, and promoted RB Kerwynn Williams from the practice squad to the active roster in a corresponding move. CB Robert Nelson was also released. Free-agent SS D.J. Swearinger (Buccaneers) was signed to the practice squad and TE Brandon Bostick was released.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson will be out at least six weeks. He'd be eligible to return if Arizona advanced to the Super Bowl. You can forget about him in all fantasy formats for the rest of this year. David Johnson is an immediate add off the waiver wire, and he could start in Week 13 against the St. Louis Rams if Andre Ellington is out of action with turf toe.

Fantasy Tip: If Ellington and Chris Johnson both aren't able to play this week, David Johnson would make for a great play on FantasyScore. Ellington's status will need to be monitored, but it sounds like D. Johnson could be in for a bigger week.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson (leg) is 36 rushing yards away from earning a $250,000 bonus for 850 yards, according to a league source. Johnson had $1.13 million in incentives in his contract and has earned $280,000 of those alongside his $870,000 base salary.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson could be out the rest of the regular season, pending tests to confirm a broken tibia. David Johnson ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) figures to be the lead back this week with Andre Ellington (toe) also banged up. Johnson doesn't have the best matchup, with the St. Louis Rams to contend with, but he's a low-end RB2 option on FantasyScore.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson (leg) suffered a fractured tibia during the team's Week 12 game and will miss an extended period of time. The team is still waiting to receive a definite timetable for his return.
Fantasy Tip: David Johnson could become the starting running back if Johnson and Andre Ellington miss significant time. Owners should monitor the practice participation this week to see who will be available to play against the St. Louis Rams in Week 13. David Johnson could be a solid starting option in some leagues.

Fantasy Tip: If Ellington or Chris Johnson miss any time, David Johnson is definitely worth a pickup in seasonal leagues. He didn't do much yesterday aside from a touchdown, but he's a versatile running back that would fill in nicely for either Ellington or Johnson.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington could have an opening with Chris Johnson (knee) also in limbo. Stay tuned to his status in the coming days.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd was active, but he was certainly limited in the offense. Avoid him in all fantasy formats until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game and play without any limitations.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald nearly had a touchdown, but it was dropped in the end zone to make fantasy owners shudder and wring their hands. He was still solid in PPR formats since he had 10 grabs.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Brown did not show any ill-effects of his hamstring injury. Start him in FantasyScore going forward, especially if Michael Floyd continues to be slowed by injury.
Sun, 29 Nov 2015 18:16:41 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Johnson had a few more touches with Andre Ellington and Chris Johnson each checking out due to injury, and he might be the featured back in Week 13 if the two veterans are unable to make it back.
