  Cardinals | Michael Floyd practices in full    Thu Oct 30, 05:36 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (knee) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 30.

Footballguys view: Floyd is running routes, and his targets aren't too much lower than Larry Fitzgerald's, but he's not hauling in the passes. He's a risky fantasy start this week against the Cowboys. We can only recommend him as a low-end WR3 in Week 9.

Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (knee) was listed as a full participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

Footballguys view: Floyd has only 42 targets this year on 245 routes run. That's the same number of routes that Larry Fitzgerald has this season. The big difference? Fitzgerald has 30 catches, and Floyd has only 19. We'll see if the team works to get Floyd more catches in the near future.

  Cardinals | Few looks for Michael Floyd     Tue Oct 28, 09:25 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd currently ranks fourth on the team with 18 targets this season.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners want this to turn around. He's getting deep targets, but he's not getting enough of them. The Cardinals should work to turn that around in the near future.

  Cardinals | Andre Ellington finds end zone    Sun Oct 26, 08:45 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington carried 23 times for 71 yards and a touchdown in Week 8 against the Philadelphia Eagles, and he added three receptions for 14 yards.

Footballguys view: Ellington has been doing yeoman's work, grinding out the tough yards for an offensive line that doesn't dominate at the line of scrimmage. He also got the goal line work today, and vulture Stepfan Taylor later left the game. Consider Ellington an RB1 going forward as the lead back on a winning team with a good passing game.

  Cardinals | John Brown posts long score    Sun Oct 26, 08:44 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown hauled in five receptions for 119 yards with a 75-yard touchdown in Week 8 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Footballguys view: Brown was able to get behind the defense at a key moment in the game and he converted with the game-winning score and a huge game for anyone who was desperate enough to start him. He has what the heck flex status with Carson Palmer's arm strength back and able to lead Brown for long scores in any given week.

  Cardinals | No statistics for Michael Floyd    Sun Oct 26, 08:43 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd was targeted four times in Week 8 against the Philadelphia Eagles, but he did not have any receptions or touches.

Footballguys view: Floyd got banged up during the game and couldn't reel in any of his deep targets on a 300+ yard day for Carson Palmer. Next week against Dallas should be another opportunity for a bigger game against a suspect secondary, but a floor of a zero can be hard to swallow.

  Cardinals | Calais Campbell a game-time decision    Sat Oct 25, 12:14 PM

Arizona Cardinals DE Calais Campbell (knee) likely will be a game-time decision for Week 8, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

  Cardinals | Solomon Patton signed to practice squad    Sat Oct 25, 05:08 AM

The Arizona Cardinals signed WR Solomon Patton to their practice squad on Friday, Oct. 24.

Footballguys view: Patton is lightning quick and can work well as a return man. He's a slot receiver, but may not have much of a role on offense if he's ever activated from the PS.

  Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald has owned Philly    Fri Oct 24, 12:53 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald has at least one touchdown (10 total) and averages 6.7 catches for 107 yards in six career games against the Philadelphia Eagles, his Week 8 opponent. However, Fitzgerald is tempering his expectations this time around, as he knows he isn't the target magnet he once was. He's only on pace for 61 catches for 755 yards this season. Head coach Bruce Arians isn't concerned with anyone on the team building their stats, and the offense thrives on spreading the ball around. Only RB Andre Ellington (25 catches) has more than Fitzgerald on the team.

  Cardinals | Andre Ellington's foot still sore    Thu Oct 23, 10:52 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) said the partially torn tendon in his foot probably won't feel better until after the year. 'I understand it's never going to feel good,' Ellington said. 'It's probably not going to feel good until January or February or whenever the season is over with.'

Footballguys view: Ellington hasn't hit his ceiling for dynasty leagues, and in redraft he will carry this limited ceiling for the rest of the season, but he is showing his toughness under a heavy workload, and Ellington is still on track to be one of the most valuable fantasy running backs this year and long term.

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (ankle) did not practice in full Thursday, Oct. 23.

Footballguys view: Brown's ankle is slowing him down a bit. Even though the Cardinals passing game looks better with Carson Palmer, we're not falling all over ourselves to get Brown into the lineup. He's a desperation fantasy play this week.

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (shoulder) threw at team headquarters Tuesday, Oct. 21, and is 'real close' to 100% percent, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Footballguys view: That's good news for the Cardinals. The team just operates better when Palmer is under center. Guys like Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd are better fantasy plays when Palmer is starting.

  Cardinals | Andre Ellington extremely productive    Tue Oct 21, 03:58 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington had 88 yards rushing and 72 yards receiving in Week 7, and only four players in franchise history since 1960 to have more yards from scrimmage than Ellington's 653 through six games. Ellington has also been playing with a partially torn tendon in his foot. Head coach Bruce Arians said Ellington will continue to sit out of practice on Wednesdays.

Footballguys view: Ellington is one of the most explosive players in the game today. It's wise for the Cardinals to use him as much as possible. However, fantasy owners were upset that Stepfan Taylor (and not Ellington) scored a couple of touchdowns for the Cardinals in Week 7.

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (shoulder) continues to see improvement with the bruised nerve in his right shoulder, and head coach Bruce Arians said Friday, Oct. 17, that the injury continues to improve daily.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Cardinals here. As you saw last week, the Cardinals offense just looks different (better) with Palmer in the lineup. Fantasy owners can feel more confident about starting Larry Fitzgerald or Michael Floyd with Palmer in the lineup.

  Cardinals | John Carlson back to 100 percent    Fri Oct 17, 11:40 PM

Arizona Cardinals TE John Carlson (knee) is almost back to 100 percent after suffering a knee injury in the Week 6 game. Head coach Bruce Arians said Friday, Oct. 17, that Carlson practiced better than Thursday, Oct. 16, when he returned to the field after missing time Wednesday, Oct. 15.

Footballguys view: Carlson being back to 100 percent would have more fantasy relevance if the Cardinals actually used their tight ends in the passing game.
