  Cardinals | Kyler Murray to play more in preseason game    Sat Aug 17, 04:10 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray will play at least the first half of the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 24, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury.

Footballguys view: We want to see how Murray responds after struggling against the Raiders in week two of the preseason. Murray is a quick learner, so he has to take what he learned the last time out and improve. The Raiders confused Murray with some coverage and blitz schemes on Thursday night. Fantasy GMs have been going wild about Murray in drafts, and he's got a current ADP of QB9 (8.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Cardinals | Bad news for Robert Alford    Thu Aug 15, 11:54 PM

Arizona Cardinals CB Robert Alford (leg) is likely to miss an 'extended amount of time' after suffering a leg injury in a 33-26 preseason loss to the Oakland Raiders Thursday, Aug. 15.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals are now down their top two corners for the beginning of the season through the first six game after Alford fractured his tibia. They will be a target at lineup setting time and in DFS lineups.

  Cardinals | Long score for Andy Isabella    Thu Aug 15, 11:29 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Andy Isabella's caught one of his four targets for a 59-yard touchdown in a 33-26 preseason loss to the Oakland Raiders Thursday, Aug. 15.

Footballguys view: Isabella came in with the backups, but he will push for playing time if he keeps making big plays in the preseason.

  Cardinals | Kyler Murray roughed up    Thu Aug 15, 11:17 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray completed three of his eight passes for 12 yards and rushed once for four yards in a 33-26 preseason loss to the Oakland Raiders Thursday, Aug. 15. He was also sacked twice.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals offense looked overwhelmed. Cam Newton's first preseason was a disaster so we can't read too much into this, but if the trend continues, it could be a bad indicator for this new offense.

  Cardinals | Corey Liuget visiting Cards    Thu Aug 15, 09:00 AM

Free-agent DT Corey Liuget (Chargers) is visiting the Arizona Cardinals Thursday, Aug. 15.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals sorely need help on the defensive line with the release of both Robert Nkemdiche and Darius Philon this summer.

Arizona Cardinals TE Charles Clay (knee) was activated from the the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list Sunday, Aug. 11.

Footballguys view: Clay is versatile and could be an interesting piece in the air raid if he stays healthy. That has been the problem, however, for most of his career.

  Cardinals | Kevin White ruled out    Sat Aug 10, 09:29 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Kevin White (hamstring) has been ruled out for the preseason game against the Oakland Raiders Thursday, Aug. 15.

Footballguys view: White was added to deep sleeper lists when he landed in the first pure air raid offense after playing in the scheme at West Virginia, but this hamstring issue probably has him on the outside looking in at final cuts.

  Cardinals | Arizona parts with Darius Philon    Sat Aug 10, 07:19 PM

Arizona Cardinals DE Darius Philon was released Saturday, Aug.10.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals have now released a projected starting defensive end and a defensive end that was going to be back by midseason to take significant snaps (Robert Nkemdiche). Rookie Zach Allen is going to be a crucial player for an overworked defensive line.

  Cardinals | Kyler Murray efficient    Fri Aug 9, 11:51 AM

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray was 6-for-7 for 44 yards in his preseason debut Thursday, Aug. 8.

Footballguys view: Murray played sound safe football and didn't really test the defense in the middle of the field. We hope to see him do more in the next two preseason games, but we probably won't see the offense the Cardinals will show the Lions in Week 1.

  Cardinals | Trent Sherfield catches eye of HC    Fri Aug 9, 02:30 AM

Arizona Cardinals WR Trent Sherfield drew praise from head coach Kliff Kingsbury after catching four passes for 44 yards and a touchdown in a 17-13 preseason win over the Los Angeles Chargers Thursday, Aug. 8. 'He just keeps getting better,' Kingsbury said. 'Very solid player. Had a great play on special teams. Heck of a catch on that touchdown and shows up and works every day.'

Footballguys view: The wide receiver positions after Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk are wide open, so Sherfield has a chance for significant playing time if he can keep it up. He should be a waiver wire watch list player if he makes the team.

  Cardinals | Byron Murphy in a boot    Thu Aug 8, 09:36 PM

Arizona Cardinals CB Byron Murphy (foot) was spotted wearing a walking boot on his right foot ahead of the preseason game against the Los Angeles Chargers Thursday, Aug. 8.

Footballguys view: Murphy was a candidate to replace Patrick Peterson in the starting lineup during this six game suspension and was going to play a large role in the secondary in any event. If this affects his Week 1 availability, bump up Matthew Stafford and the Lions receivers.

  Cardinals | Two players should be fine    Tue Aug 6, 10:59 PM

  Cardinals | Andy Isabella back to work    Tue Aug 6, 03:54 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Andy Isabella (knee) returned to practice Tuesday, Aug. 6.

Footballguys view: Isabella only missed a few days of camp with this knee injury. The rookie from UMASS has speed to burn and is an exciting downfield option for the Cardinals offense. The room is cramped further with the addition of Michael Crabtree on Monday. We'll see how the pecking order shapes up behind starters Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk.

  Cardinals | Michael Crabtree doesn't sign with Cards    Tue Aug 6, 08:15 AM

Updating a previous report, free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (Ravens) was unable to agree to terms with the Arizona Cardinals and left without signing.

Footballguys view: Crabtree might be overplaying his hand as the two sides were unable to agree about money. If another team has a key injury at wide receiver or otherwise sours on their current group, he'll have more leverage, but this could also be the only offer he gets this month.

  Cardinals | Chad Williams back on field    Mon Aug 5, 10:46 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Chad Williams (undisclosed) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 5, after missing around a week because of his injury.

Footballguys view: Williams will be hard pressed to make the Cardinals 53-man roster this year. They added three interesting rookie wide receivers this year (Andy Isabella, Hakeem Butler, Keesean Johnson) and the Cardinals signed veteran Michael Crabtree on Monday.

  Cardinals | Arizona adds Michael Crabtree    Mon Aug 5, 07:28 PM

Free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (Ravens) signed with the Arizona Cardinals Monday, Aug. 5, according to a source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: It's an ...interesting move for the Cardinals. Crabtree should know the Texas Tech concepts that Kliff Kingsbury is bringing to the NFL this year as both of them were Red Raiders in college. Now 32-years old, Crabtree may not have much left in the tank and is not a lock for the 53-man roster. The Cardinals have Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk at the top of the depth chart. Crabtree will compete with the rookie trio of KeeSean Johnson, Hakeem Butler and Andy Isabella to establish a pecking order.

  Cardinals | Justin Pugh to miss a couple of weeks    Mon Aug 5, 02:28 PM

Arizona Cardinals OG Justin Pugh (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury during a scrimmage on Saturday, Aug. 3, and will be sidelined at least a 'couple of weeks,' according to Pro Football Talk's Darin Gantt.

Footballguys view: Pugh is one of the best players on the Cardinals line, so this hurts. He had trouble staying healthy last year too.

  Cardinals | Hakeem Butler has work to do    Sun Aug 4, 10:32 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Hakeem Butler has had problems 'holding onto the ball' during training camp, according to Scott Bordow of The Athletic.

Footballguys view: Butler has alternated spectacular plays and drops on routine passes. He has to become more consistent to get playing time, but the hope is that the lapses will lessen as he becomes more experienced.

  Cardinals | Andy Isabella battling drops    Sun Aug 4, 10:22 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Andy Isabella has 'dropped too many passes' so far during training camp, according to Scott Bordow of The Athletic.

Footballguys view: Isabella was considered a favorite to get the most snaps of the rookie wideouts in Arizona because he was the highest pick, but he hasn't had a good summer. His speed is still very exciting and a big play waiting to happen, but he might be slow to develop in a new offensive scheme.

  Cardinals | KeeSean Johnson set to start?    Sun Aug 4, 09:53 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR KeeSean Johnson is one of the 'clear' top-three receivers, according to Scott Bordow of The Athletic.

Footballguys view: This continues a very strong summer from Johnson. He is taking to the offense quickly and should be on your late round PPR sleeper list.

  Cardinals | Kevin White a starter?    Sat Aug 3, 10:48 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Kevin White is listed as the No. 3 receiver on Arizona's first depth chart.

Footballguys view: Preliminary depth charts are very unreliable, but White is at least in the range of making the team on this news, and he has air raid experience from his time at West Virginia. If he makes the team and is in line to get snaps, we'll keep him on the waiver wire watch list.

  Cardinals | Andy Isabella sidelined    Fri Aug 2, 02:04 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Andy Isabella (knee) is dealing with a 'minor knee issue' but should be back 'sooner than later,' according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury. Isabella is expected to be ready for the team's first preseason game against the Los Angeles Chargers on Thursday, Aug. 8, although Kingsbury told reporters the team will not 'press it.'

Footballguys view: Isabella missing time won't help his bid to get off of the second team. He's still a stash in redraft leagues as a potential big play threat in this offense, but KeeSean Johnson's value continues to grow in one of the best stories of Arizona camp.

  Cardinals | Kyler Murray adjusting to speed    Fri Aug 2, 12:52 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray said he is feeling comfortable overall but added he is still adjusting to the speed of the NFL game. 'I think that's probably one of the biggest adjustments is windows are tighter,' Murray said Thursday, Aug. 1. 'You got to anticipate things a lot more. But that makes it fun. College, you know, dudes would be wide open. It'd be really easy stuff like that. It's part of being in the NFL.'

Footballguys view: This is something Murray can really only adjust to on the job in the regular season, although defenses will also have to adjust to him. This will be one of the best stories to watch this season to see who has the upper hand and how it changes over the course of the year.

  Cardinals | KeeSean Johnson impressing Arizona    Tue Jul 30, 10:04 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR KeeSean Johnson 'continues to shine' during the early part of training camp, according to Mike Jurecki of the team's website.

Footballguys view: There's a lot to like about the rookie. Johnson was a star at Fresno State and showed off a great size/speed/length combination in college. He's not quite as fast as you need for a deep threat and his routes need to be refined, but Johnson is a deep dynasty prospect we certainly appreciate.

  Cardinals | Kyler Murray already commanding offense    Tue Jul 30, 06:21 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray already has a full understanding of the offense he's expected to lead from Week 1 of the 2019 NFL season, according to teammate WR Larry Fitzgerald. 'I've never seen a quarterback come in so quickly and be able to command an offense,' Fitzgerald said. 'I mean, from Day 1, he's out there checking the different plays, sliding the line, different protections, getting us in screens when blitzes are coming. His understanding of the offense is crazy. 'I think that's going to give us a great advantage, to play fast from the first preseason game all the way to the start of the regular season and giving him the keys to the car and letting him is going to be great for us.'

Footballguys view: Murray has made some great plays in drills during training camp. We're excited to see the No. 1 overall pick from day one, and Fantasy GMs know there's value there. He has a current ADP of QB9 (8.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Cardinals | Robert Nkemdiche let go    Sun Jul 28, 02:44 AM

Arizona Cardinals DL Robert Nkemdiche was released Saturday, July 27.

Footballguys view: This is not a surprise after he showed up out of shape. Nkemdiche has a rare combination of size and athleticism, but was considered a big risk when he was taken near the end of the first round. If he gets back in football shape, he may get another shot elsewhere.

Arizona Cardinals S D.J. Swearinger (undisclosed) is considered day-to-day because of a soft tissue injury.

Footballguys view: Fifth round supplemental pick Jalen Thompson could get some extra reps while Swearinger is out. The Cardinals secondary needs all of their top players to stay healthy to survive while Patrick Peterson misses the first six games.

  Cardinals | Dennis Gardeck to work with starters    Sat Jul 27, 07:14 PM

Arizona Cardinals LB Dennis Gardeck is working at inside linebacker with the first-team defense since LB Haason Reddick (knee) is sidelined.

Footballguys view: While Gardeck gets on the deep IDP league radar on this news, it highlights just how thin the Cardinals defense is. They are going to give up a lot of points this year without any key injuries, and could be majorly compromised while Patrick Peterson is suspended for six games.

  Cardinals | Haason Reddick undergoes surgery    Sat Jul 27, 02:13 PM

Arizona Cardinals LB Haason Reddick (knee) recently underwent arthroscopic knee surgery and will be sidelined for a few weeks, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury.

Footballguys view: Reddick is slated to play inside linebacker in the 3-4 scheme the Cardinals are switching back to under new defensive coordinator Vance Joseph. He hasn't produced like a first round pick yet, and this will slow his acclimation to his new role.
