The Arizona Cardinals have declared CB Charles Washington, WR Christian Kirk, C Lamont Gaillard, OT Brett Toth, DL Zach Allen, DE Dennis Gardeck and DB Zeke Turner inactive for Week 6.

Footballguys view: As expected, David Johnson is active and Christian Kirk is not. Damiere Byrd does return to help a thin wide receiver group.

  Cardinals | Christian Kirk unlikely to play    Sun Oct 13, 10:46 AM

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (ankle) is not expected to play in Week 6's game against the Atlanta Falcons, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Kirk isn't ready to go full speed yet, so the Cardinals would be smart to let him sit one more week. Pharoh Cooper would take his spot at inside receiver, but Cooper is only a desperation play.

  Cardinals | David Johnson could play in Week 6    Sun Oct 13, 09:05 AM

The Arizona Cardinals are optimistic that RB David Johnson (back) will be able to play in Week 6's game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Footballguys view: Johnson probably won't get his full workload if he is active, which makes Chase Edmonds more flexworthy either way. The Falcons poor defense makes Johnson tough to leave on the bench if he's active.

  Cardinals | Chase Edmonds ready if needed    Fri Oct 11, 09:30 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds said he is prepared for a bigger workload if RB David Johnson (back) is limited or unable to play against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6.

Footballguys view: Edmonds is a talented player who can play on all three downs. If Johnson misses the game against the Falcons, Edmonds could immediately provide Fantasy GMs with a flex play or RB2 with upside in Week 6.

  Cardinals | Week 6 injury report for Arizona    Fri Oct 11, 05:12 PM

Arizona Cardinals LB Dennis Gardeck (ankle), LB Zeke Turner (hamstring) and S Charles Washington (shoulder) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 6 against the Atlanta Falcons. DL Zach Allen (neck) was downgraded for a second straight day and did not practice Friday, Oct. 11, while LB Terrell Suggs did not practice for a third straight day; both players are listed as questionable. RB David Johnson (back) was upgraded to a limited practice Friday and is listed as questionable as well. WR Damiere Byrd (hamstring), WR Christian Kirk (ankle), P Andy Lee (hip), LB Haason Reddick (shoulder) and CB Trevor Williams (hip) were limited in practice Friday and are also listed as questionable. CB Tramaine Brock (shoulder) and LB Jordan Hicks (non-injury) were both upgraded to full practice Friday and have been removed the injury report. WR Larry Fitzgerald (non-injury) and DL Corey Peters (non-injury) practiced in full for a second straight day and also no longer appear on the injury report.

Footballguys view: We will have to check back on Sunday morning to know Johnson and Kirk's statuses. They play in a late game so we might have to make lineup decisions that hinge on their availability without certain knowledge of whether they will play.

  Cardinals | David Johnson back at work Friday    Fri Oct 11, 02:51 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (back) participated during the portion of practice open to the media Friday, Oct. 11.

Footballguys view: This is trending in a positive direction after Steve Keim's comments made it sound like Johnson might not play. If Johnson is active, you have to play him against the generous Atlanta defense.

  Cardinals | David Johnson has a chance to play    Fri Oct 11, 11:46 AM

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (back) 'has a chance to play' in Week 6, according to general manager Steve Keim.

Footballguys view: This seems to indicate that he's on the doubtful side of questionable since Keim's phrasing suggests the more likely outcome is that he doesn't play. Chase Edmonds should be in lineups either way as the team has been preparing him as the starter against the woeful Falcons defense.

  Cardinals | Bigger role for Andy Isabella?    Thu Oct 10, 09:29 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Andy Isabella will be more involved in the offense moving forward, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury. 'I like where he's heading,' Kingsbury said. 'It has nothing to do with us being disappointed. His work ethic is through the roof, and his talent is through the roof. We'll get him going.'

Footballguys view: Kingsbury is saying the right things, but if Isabella was progressing well in the offense, he would have stuck with one position instead of being switched from inside to outside receiver, even with the team needing help inside more than outside right now.

  Cardinals | Christian Kirk logs second straight practice    Thu Oct 10, 03:03 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk (ankle) practiced for a second straight day Thursday, Oct. 10.

Footballguys view: Kirk is worth a WR3/Flex play against the horrid Falcons pass defense as long as he is active and his presence would improve Kyler Murray's already bright outlook.

  Cardinals | David Johnson a no-go again Thursday    Thu Oct 10, 02:53 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (back) did not practice for a second straight day Thursday, Oct. 10.

Footballguys view: Chase Edmonds is set up for a start if Johnson isn't ready, although he is an established player who could still play without any practice this week if he feels good on Sunday. Edmonds is worth a flex play at worst.

  Cardinals | David Johnson could be game-time decision    Thu Oct 10, 01:38 AM

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (back) will likely be a 'game-day decision' for Week 6, according to AZCardinals.com's Darren Urban.

Footballguys view: Fantasy GMs (and DFS players) have to get Chase Edmonds in the lineup. He's a good all-purpose back and would get a huge workload if Johnson can't play. Even if Johnson does suit up, Edmonds could have a nice week against the Falcons in Week 6.

  Cardinals | KeeSean Johnson leads receiving corps in snaps    Tue Oct 8, 08:21 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR KeeSean Johnson led his team's receiving corps with 73 offensive snaps played against the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday, Oct. 6.

Footballguys view: It was disappointing that Johnson couldn't do more against the Bengals. Johnson caught 3-of-7 targets for 22 yards in Week 5. The Cardinals are at home to play the Falcons in Week 6, and we're taking a wait-and-see approach with Johnson in deeper leagues. The role is there to do more but he's not yet producing at the expected level.

  Cardinals | David Johnson could sit Week 6?    Mon Oct 7, 03:50 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (back) will be monitored throughout the week, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury, who added 'there's always a chance' Johnson won't be available in Week 6 against the Atlanta Falcons due to his back.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on this situation as the week of practice goes on. Johnson's back reportedly locked up on him versus the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 5. All Fantasy GMs need to add Chase Edmonds as a handcuff to Johnson or as a player to plug in as a RB2 or flex option if Johnson has to miss some time.

  Cardinals | Kyler Murray making history    Mon Oct 7, 01:09 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray is the first player in NFL history with more than 1,300 yards passing and 200 yards rushing through his first five career games, according to AZCardinals.com's Mike Jurecki.

Footballguys view: Murray knows the offense like the back of his hand so there's been no time for him to get used to the system. He's come in and immediately been able to run the scheme true to form. We're excited to see Murray as he gets more comfortable with the pro game and adjusts to the speed and discipline pro defenders play with.

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (back) had issues with his back during the first half of the game Sunday, Oct. 6. Johnson said his back locked up on him, but he doesn't anticipate it being serious.

Footballguys view: Johnson has been solid this year and is currently the No. 12 fantasy running back in standard-scoring leagues. If you have the bench space, grab Chase Edmonds as a handcuff to Johnson.

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds ran eight times for 68 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the Cincinnati Bengals while adding three grabs for 18 yards on four targets.

Footballguys view: Edmonds had a long touchdown and looked crisp running the ball for the second straight week. He'll be a good waiver wire add this week with a growing role and matchup against Atlanta this week.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray completed 20-of-32 passes for 253 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 5 against the Cincinnati Bengals, and he rushed 10 times for 93 yards and a touchdown for his first NFL win.

Footballguys view: Murray was quicker and swifter than the Bengals defense when he needed to be and effective passing considering he was without two of his top three receivers. He'll be a solid DFS play and matchup QB1 against Atlanta next week.
