  Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald back at practice    Thu Nov 23, 03:16 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 23.

Footballguys view: Fitzgerald continues to show he can overcome all sorts of negatives - age, poor quarterbacking, no ground game - and still perform. But with a tough defensive matchup and Blaine Gabbert at the helm, we're very concerned this week. Consider him no more than a WR4 this week.

  Cardinals | JJ Nelson listed as limited    Thu Nov 23, 03:13 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson (chest) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 23.

Footballguys view: Nelson can stretch the field but Blaine Gabbert isn't very good. If you need a flier, Nelson will serve as a high upside, big downside guy this weekend against a tough Jacksonville defense.

  Cardinals | John Brown does not practice    Thu Nov 23, 03:12 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (toe) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 23.

Footballguys view: Thanksgiving Day practices are hard to get wigged out about, so we'll wait until Friday's practice before we get concerned. Blaine Gabbert, the Jacksonville defense - those are things we're concerned about. We'd avoid him.

  Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald has rest day    Wed Nov 22, 04:47 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (rest) was given the day off Wednesday, Nov. 22.

Footballguys view: It's a tough matchup for the Cardinals this week...and oh yeah, Blaine Gabbert is still the quarterback. Even against a strong Jaguars defense, Fitzgerald could post WR2 numbers in Week 12.

  Cardinals | Carson Palmer not expected back    Wed Nov 22, 03:45 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (arm) has not made the progress he was expected to make in his rehabilitation and is not expected to return this season, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals season is likely over with a 4-6 record. Palmer may have played the final football of his career in 2017. He's incredibly close to retirement, and we wouldn't be surprised if he called it quits. His future is certainly up in the air.

  Cardinals | David Johnson may not return this year    Wed Nov 22, 03:42 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) has not made the progress he was expected to make in his rehabilitation and is not expected to return this season, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Footballguys view: Bad news for fantasy owners holding onto Johnson and holding out hope that he could return late this year. The Cardinals season is likely over with a 4-6 record after 11 weeks of football. Johnson will stay shut down this year with the plan that he'll be at full strength for the offseason program.

  Cardinals | Carlton Agudosi promoted    Tue Nov 21, 01:58 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Carlton Agudosi was added to the 53-man roster from the practice squad Tuesday, Nov. 21.

Footballguys view: Agudosi is an intriguing deep dynasty prospect we've been keeping our eyes on. He didn't post many numbers in college at Rutgers, but Agudosi is huge (6'6" 220 pounds) and has over a 40" vertical leap. A former high school basketball star, Agudosi can obviously be used in the red zone where he can box out and out-leap smaller defenders.

  Cardinals | Chad Williams to see more playing time    Tue Nov 21, 12:23 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Chad Williams is 'going to get his shot' and has 'been practicing really, really well' lately, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Footballguys view: Williams is one of our favorite dynasty prospects to watch. A third-round pick out of Grambling State in 2017, Williams plays larger than his size (6'1" 205 pounds) would indicate. Williams is not a savvy route runner but can make plays with strong hands and the ability to make crazy catches seem routine.

  Cardinals | Andre Ellington released    Mon Nov 20, 04:52 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington was released Monday, Nov. 20. Free-agent RB Bronson Hill (Vikings) was signed to the practice squad in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: Hill was undrafted out of Eastern Michigan in 2015 and he's bounced around to now eight different teams. Ellington signed a one-year deal to stay with the Cardinals this year but his role never materialized as a runner or receiver.

  Cardinals | Carson Palmer sheds cast    Mon Nov 20, 04:19 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (arm) recently had his cast removed from his injured arm, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Footballguys view: It has already been said that Palmer could return later this season, and this is a step in the right direction. The Cardinals have a 4-6 record, which likely keeps them out of the playoff picture in 2017. If they're out of it (especially with another loss), then there's no need to rush Palmer back.

  Cardinals | Blaine Gabbert will start again     Mon Nov 20, 02:28 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Blaine Gabbert will remain the starter at least until QB Drew Stanton (knee) is back at full health, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals lost to the Texans on Sunday, but Gabbert wasn't terrible. He did throw two interceptions, but he also tossed the ball for 257 yards and three touchdowns. He's got a tough matchup against the Jaguars in Week 12.

  Cardinals | John Brown dealing with turf toe    Mon Nov 20, 02:14 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (toe) has been diagnosed with turf toe and is likely to 'miss time,' according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Footballguys view: If it's not one thing, it's another for John Brown. We all know he's talented and can take the top off the defense, but injuries have seemingly constantly knocked his production off track.

  Cardinals | Blaine Gabbert tosses three TDs    Sun Nov 19, 09:04 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Blaine Gabbert completed 22 of his 34 pass attempts for 257 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 11 against the Houston Texans.

Footballguys view: Gabbert was very good and should remain the starter even when Drew Stanton is healthy enough to play again. He appears to have a future again as a backup, although his old Jaguars team will probably make him look bad next week. Gabbert is potentially worth a start in future weeks in 2QB/Superflex leagues.

  Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald no lock to play in 2018    Fri Nov 17, 10:02 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald's one-year extension doesn't necessarily mean he will play in 2018, but it does mean that if he plays, it will be for the Cardinals, according to Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: He signed the extension and we expect him to play after the Cardinals 2017 season went off the rails. First, the injury to superstar RB David Johnson. Then, starting QB Carson Palmer goes down and the Cardinals hopes for a postseason run with him. The option is there for him to play with the one-year extension, and by all signs Fitzgerald still has plenty left in the tank.

  Cardinals | Blaine Gabbert to start    Wed Nov 15, 09:30 AM

Arizona Cardinals QB Blaine Gabbert will start in Week 11 against the Houston Texans.

Footballguys view: Gabbert gets a chance with Drew Stanton (knee) banged up. We don't see a big difference between the two QBs, and fantasy owners have better options out there...even in start-2QB leagues.

Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (knee) participated in practice Tuesay, Nov. 14, according to head coach Bruce Arians, although it's unclear how much he was able to do. QB Blaine Gabbert did receive some first-team repetitions.

Footballguys view: Gabbert or Stanton is like the choice between airline food and hospital food. Both will get the job done, but neither one gets you real excited. Fantasy owners have better options out there, even in start-2QB leagues or QB-flex formats.

Free-agent QB Matt Barkley (49ers) was officially signed by the Arizona Cardinals and S Harlan Miller was promoted to the active roster from the practice squad Monday, Nov. 13. Additionally, S Tyvon Branch (knee) , OT D.J. Humphries (knee) and TE Ifeanyi Momah (ankle) were placed on the Reserve/Injured list.

Footballguys view: With Drew Stanton (knee) banged up, the Cardinals needed to add depth at the QB position. We could see Blaine Gabbert as the team's starter with Barkley as his backup if Stanton misses time.

  Cardinals | Adrian Peterson joins dubious list    Sat Nov 11, 10:31 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson became the seventh player in NFL history to gain less than 30 rushing yards while carrying the ball 20 or more times when he rushed for 29 yards on 21 carries against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10.

Footballguys view: Peterson is at least a volume Flex play or RB2 against Houston next week in a game that Arizona should be able to stay in for the entire game, but his downside is clear against good defenses when he is playing from behind, and David Johnson could be back in a few weeks, so Peterson's suitability as a contributor in the fantasy playoffs is questionable.

  Cardinals | Carson Palmer back in Week 16?    Sat Nov 11, 09:21 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (arm) didn't rule out a Week 16 return. 'I could potentially be available the last two weeks of the season,' Palmer said.

Footballguys view: This isn't a reason to pick him up except possibly in deep 2QB/Superflex leagues. Blaine Gabbert could be starting for Arizona next week, which is not good for the chances of the Cardinals still being in playoff contention come Week 16.

  Cardinals | Arizona to add Matt Barkley    Sat Nov 11, 02:26 PM

Free-agent QB Matt Barkley (49ers) will be signing with the Arizona Cardinals, according to sources.

Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (knee) suffered a sprained knee during the team's Week 10 game and could miss a week or two, according to sources.

Footballguys view: QB Blaine Gabbert will start Week 11 if Stanton remains sidelined. We don't think the difference between Stanton and Gabbert is that wide.
