  Cardinals | Christian Kirk not practicing    Tue Aug 3, 02:39 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (undisclosed) has been nursing a minor undisclosed injury recently, but head coach Kliff Kingsbury told reporters Tuesday, Aug. 3, that he expects Kirk back 'soon.'

Footballguys view: It's an undisclosed injury so who knows what's keeping Kirk out of action. If he's going to return soon as Kingsbury says then it must not be anything too major.

  Cardinals | A.J. Green receives hefty praise from teammate    Mon Aug 2, 08:42 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR A.J. Green still 'has a lot in the tank' and is 'still in his prime,' according to teammate DeAndre Hopkins.'I probably haven't played with anyone of his caliber. ... I know you guys are probably going to take that run with it. ... The reason I say that, A.J. still has a lot in the tank. The other two (likely) Hall of Famers I played with (Larry Fitzgerald and Andre Johnson), I'd say, were at the end of their career. They taught me a lot, but I feel like A.J. is still in his prime,' Hopkins said.

  Cardinals | Cards want Larry Fitzgerald back    Wed Jul 21, 11:11 AM

Free-agent WR Larry Fitzgerald (Cardinals) would be welcomed back by the Arizona Cardinals if he wants to play in 2021.

Footballguys view: Fitzgerald apparently hasn't made up his mind yet, and it's not certain he would have a significant role with A.J. Green and Rondale Moore added to the wide receiver room since last year. His days of fantasy relevance are over.

  Cardinals | Few big plays for DeAndre Hopkins     Fri Jul 16, 11:12 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins had a 14.8 percent rate of 20-plus yard catches in 2020, and his 17 catches of 20-plus yards were tied for 12th among receivers.

Footballguys view: Hopkins was not used in an imaginative or varied way in the Cardinals offense last year and defenses started to limit his impact on games as the season went on. He's still carrying at top five wide receiver price tag, but the offense will need to evolve with the addition of A.J. Green and Rondale Moore and Kyler Murray entering his third season for Hopkins to deliver on his lofty cost.

  Cardinals | Edmonds Favorite to be Featured Back?    Fri Jul 9, 02:39 PM

Adam Beasley, from Pro Football Network, reports Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds is "the favorite to be the team's featured back."

Footballguys view: That's what most people are expecting. The Cardinals picked up James Conner and he'll be there to get some complementary work. Edmonds can thrive as a runner and receiver out of the backfield. His touchdowns are dinged by the presence of QB Kyler Murray but he should get more than the one rushing touchdown he had in 2020. Edmonds is a low-end RB2/flex play for Fantasy GMs this year.

  Cardinals | Kyler Murray wants to run less?    Fri Jul 2, 09:24 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray said his running ability 'should be a luxury' for the offense. 'And it kind of wasn't like that last year,' Murray said 'It was kind of me having to run for us in a sense and once my shoulder was banged up, or whatever, and I wasn't trying to put myself out there and take those hits and stuff like that, we kind of hit a lull.'

Footballguys view: Any scrambling quarterback should want to run less as they go on in their careers. Murray is developed as a passer and should be able to make more plays from the pocket, but his legs will always be an asset for his game. He's incredibly dangerous as a runner, and his fantasy value is sky high because he can attack a defense on the ground or through the air.

  Cardinals | Big year for A.J. Green?    Tue Jun 29, 10:21 AM

Arizona Cardinals WR A.J. Green is expected to have a big year by QB Kyler Murray. Murray, who has worked out with Green this offseason, is impressed with him. 'I expect A.J. to have a big year,' Murray said. 'I know a lot of people are sleeping on him. I know a lot of things have been said about him maybe not being able to do it anymore. ... I'm glad he's on the team.'

Footballguys view: Let's pump the brakes on the "big year" talk for Green. Can he post better numbers than he did last year? Sure...but everyone can admit he's not the same player he used to be. Earlier this year, Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said Green has "a lot left in the tank." That's cool, and these type of stories make him an interesting late-round flier in fantasy drafts. His current ADP is WR70 (14.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Cardinals | Rondale Moore has coach excited    Sat Jun 26, 09:51 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Rondale Moore has head coach Kliff Kingsbury excited about the multiple ways he can be used in the offense. 'He's very good in the open field, making the first guy miss,' Kingsbury said. 'He has a knack at some of those plays, so, yeah, he's going to be a guy that's going to be fun to try to draw stuff up for, and see how many times we can get it to him.'

Footballguys view: We will see how creative Kingsbury is at using Moore in those multiple roles. If the second round pick can recapture the form he showed earlier in his career, he may force himself into a larger role even if Kingsbury is planning on a smaller role to begin the season. It's going to be difficult for more than one of A.J. Green, Christian Kirk, and Moore to have consistent fantasy relevance, and it's possible that none will.

  Cardinals | Kyler Murray eliciting confidence    Sat Jun 26, 12:29 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray has general manager Steve Keim eager for 2021 as the quarterback enters his third season. 'Because it's arguably the most important position on the field, you always put some time and effort into that position,' Keim said in article Friday, June 25, on the team's website. '(But) I would say my confidence at the position and in general is at a real high. ... with a guy like Kyler Murray, the thing that is so exciting for me is having the opportunity to build around a young player, a guy you can grow with as an organization and as a roster. And there are different things you can do, especially with a rookie contract, as opposed to a veteran who is making a considerable part of your salary cap.'

Footballguys view: The Cardinals have an improved offensive line, and they've improved the talent around Murray on offense. He was the no.2 fantasy quarterback last year, and there is no doubt he could be the best fantasy quarterback in 2021. Murray is developing as a passer, but it's his rushing ability that really boosts his stock. His size was a concern coming out of college, but Murray has not missed any time. He's going off the board at QB3 (4.10) in 12-team PPR leagues at this time.

  Cardinals | Rondale Moore, Arizona finalize rookie pact    Wed Jun 9, 03:19 PM

Arizona Cardinals second-round pick WR Rondale Moore (Purdue) signed a four-year contract worth a reported $6.9 million - including a $2.9 million signing bonus - on Wednesday, June 9.

Footballguys view: Moore is one of the most explosive players in this draft class. He struggled with injuries in college at Purdue, but when healthy Moore can score from anywhere on the field anytime he touches the ball. The Cardinals have a packed wide receiver room and Moore will try to carve out a role behind guys like DeAndre Hopkins, A.J. Green and Christian Kirk.

  Cardinals | Corey Peters interested in returning    Sat Jun 5, 11:37 AM

Free-agent DL Corey Peters (Cardinals) has expressed interest in returning to the Arizona Cardinals next season but is keeping his options open in free agency. He is considered ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn patellar tendon, which limited him to only nine games last season.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals could use Peters, with Leki Fotu and Rashard Lawrence the only nose tackles on the roster and neither having much experience, although Lawrence had some flashes his in his injury-interrupted rookie year in 2020. Peters coming back to Arizona makes sense for both parties and it would be more surprising if he signs elsewhere than if he comes back to Arizona.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray has 'mastered our (offensive) system,' according to comments head coach Kliff Kingsbury made to Omar Ruiz of NFL Media on Wednesday, June 2.

Footballguys view: That's a scary thought considering Murray was the no.9 fantasy quarterback as a rookie and the no.2 fantasy quarterback last year. His mastery of the Cardinals offense and natural rushing ability put him in line to be the no.1 fantasy quarterback in 2021. Right now, Fantasy GMs are taking him off the board at QB3 (4.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Cardinals | Chase Edmonds eager for opportunity    Fri May 21, 02:51 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds says he's ready to take advantage of the opportunity and seize the team's lead-back role in 2021. 'It's now or never,' Edmonds said in an article posted Friday, May 21, on the team's website . 'I've finally got my opportunity really and truly in front of me to have a pretty big role in this offense. It's something I've been dying for, praying for, since my first three years in the NFL. It seemed like it would never happen, but I've finally got this opportunity, and I've got to make the most of it.'

Footballguys view: Edmonds played second fiddle to Kenyan Drake in 2020 and still finished with a career high 850 total yards. The team let Drake walk in free agency and brought in James Conner to compete with Edmonds. We see Edmonds as the more complete back who is more dangerous as a receiver than Conner. The two will battle it out in training camp.
