Chad Williams (hamstring) is questionable for Week 15 against the Falcons.

Coach Steve Wilks said he was "optimistic" Williams would be available Sunday, but it will ultimately come down to whether or not it's "advantageous" to play him over others after being sidelined. UDFA Trent Sherfield is a legitimate DFS flier if Williams is ruled out as the former quietly played 65-of-70 offensive snaps (93%) in Week 14.
Dec 14 - 2:50 PM

David Johnson (quad) wasn't listed on the Cardinals' final injury report for Week 15 against the Falcons.

Johnson was left off the injury report after getting in a full practice on Friday. DJ is riding a four-game touchdown drought at the moment, though he'll be in a get-right spot Sunday playing indoors against a vulnerable Falcons defense. We have him as our No. 13 running back for Week 15.
Dec 14 - 2:50 PM

David Johnson (quad) returned to a limited practice on Thursday.

He sat out Wednesday's session with a quad issue, though coach Steve Wilks has been adamant that Johnson will suit up for Sunday's game in Atlanta. DJ's return to practice on Thursday puts him on track to do just that. Johnson hasn't had the year fantasy owners were hoping for, but he's in a golden spot against a struggling Falcons defense. He's worth firing up as an RB2 in all formats.
Dec 13 - 1:28 PM

Chad Williams (hamstring) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Williams is over his ankle injury but his hamstring is still an issue. Injuries have limited the 2017 third-rounder to just eight appearances this year.
Dec 12 - 7:47 PM

David Johnson (quad) did not practice Wednesday.

Coach Steve Wilks said Johnson is still expected to play against the Falcons on Sunday. The Falcons have allowed the most catches to running backs this season, paving an avenue for Johnson to possibly find some success.
Dec 12 - 3:04 PM

Chad Williams (ankle, hamstring) was listed as a starter on the Cardinals' Week 15 depth chart.

Williams has been inactive for five straight games, but it looks like a return is possible against the Falcons. If Williams does return, it limits the deep sleeper appeal of J.J. Nelson and Trent Sherfield in DFS tournaments.
Dec 11 - 7:40 PM

Cardinals placed DT Robert Nkemdiche on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.

The 2016 first-rounder needs surgery. It's the latest in a biblical wave of injuries for a team that has been running an expansion-level roster out there in recent weeks. Long struggling to make an impact, Nkemdiche made his first six career starts this season while also tallying his first 4.5 sacks. As usual, he earned negative marks from Pro Football Focus. Going on 25 and headed into the final year of his rookie contract, Nkemdiche will be on the spot in 2019. Injuries have been an ongoing issue.
Dec 10 - 2:46 PM

J.J. Nelson secured three-of-seven targets for 43 yards Sunday in the Cardinals’ Week 14 loss to the Lions.

Nelson saw his biggest workload of the season on Sunday—not a high bar to clear considering he entered this game with just 12 targets all year—but obviously he couldn't take advantage. Some of the blame falls on Josh Rosen, who missed Nelson on a number of deep balls including one that could have gone for a long touchdown. Nelson should see more involvement down the stretch with Christian Kirk (foot) out for the year, though his fantasy prospects remain minimal at best.
Dec 9 - 8:46 PM

Trent Sherfield managed five catches for 77 yards on seven targets Sunday in Arizona’s Week 14 loss to the Lions.

As you may have noticed, this is the first blurb we've ever done on Sherfield, an undrafted rookie out of Vanderbilt. It speaks to the Cardinals' troubling lack of depth that Sherfield, who most of the fantasy community had never heard of before today, led the team in receiving yards on Sunday. With Christian Kirk (foot) on injured reserve, it seems like we'll be seeing a fair amount of the 22-year-old down the stretch. Still, he's not someone fantasy owners should be counting on, especially given the anemic state of Arizona's offense.
Dec 9 - 8:46 PM

Chase Edmonds finished with 14 yards in three carries Sunday in Arizona’s Week 14 loss to Detroit.

Edmonds vultured a pair of touchdowns last week but he wasn't a factor in this one, logging just 10 offensive snaps in the loss to Detroit. He's not worth rostering in redraft leagues.
Dec 9 - 8:45 PM

Ricky Seals-Jones absorbed three catches for 31 yards on five targets Sunday in the Cardinals’ Week 14 loss to Detroit.

Even with Arizona playing from behind in the second half, Seals-Jones failed to make an impact. He did recover a first-half fumble by David Johnson, which was helpful, though fantasy owners obviously didn't benefit from that. RSJ was thought of as a tight-end sleeper when the year began, but to this point he's failed to deliver on that promise, clearing 60 yards on just one occasion. He'll take a 10-game touchdown drought into next week's showdown with Atlanta.
Dec 9 - 8:44 PM

Larry Fitzgerald chipped in with five catches for 55 yards on nine targets Sunday in the Cardinals’ Week 14 loss to Detroit.

Fitzgerald goose-egged in the first half but came alive with a handful of catches during garbage time. He also etched his name in the record books, passing Jerry Rice for the most catches in NFL history with one team. Fitzgerald isn't much of a fantasy asset these days—a new coaching staff and rookie quarterback haven't helped matters—though he won't get a juicier fantasy matchup than the one that awaits him in Week 15 against the Falcons' Swiss-cheese secondary. If there was ever a bounce-back spot for Fitz, this is it.
Dec 9 - 7:49 PM

Josh Rosen completed 26-of-41 passes for 240 yards with an interception while adding three yards on two carries Sunday in Arizona’s Week 14 loss to the Lions.

Rosen was sacked three times for a loss of 22 yards. The rookie never came close to leading a touchdown drive against Detroit and looked noticeably lost without his go-to target Christian Kirk, who was lost to a season-ending foot injury last week. Rosen struggled throwing deep, registering a long completion of just 19 yards while showing little chemistry with downfield burner J.J. Nelson. His lone interception was returned by Darius Slay for a pick-six. The former UCLA Bruin gets a favorable draw against Atlanta next week, though given his recent struggles, fantasy owners in need of a streamer should probably be looking elsewhere.
Dec 9 - 7:48 PM

David Johnson racked up 49 yards on 15 carries while also delivering eight catches for 12 yards on 10 targets Sunday in the Cardinals’ Week 14 loss to Detroit.

Johnson also fumbled, though fortunately tight end Ricky Seals-Jones was able to fall on it. The Cardinals' offense accomplished next to nothing against the Lions and Johnson did little to help the cause, averaging a feeble 3.3 yards per carry to go with an even more underwhelming 1.5 yards per reception. DJ caught fire for a bit after Byron Leftwich succeeded Mike McCoy as offensive coordinator but he's fallen off over his last three games, slumping to just 3.48 yards per carry with no touchdowns during that span. Luckily he'll be in a good spot to bounce back when the Cardinals visit the struggling Falcons in Week 15.
Dec 9 - 7:43 PM

Cardinals declared WR Chad Williams, LB Deone Bucannon, TE Darrell Daniels, DE Vontarrius Dora, OG Zack Golditch, CB Dontae Johnson and CB Quinten Rollins inactive for Week 14 against the Lions.

Williams is out with ankle and hamstring injuries. This will be his fifth straight absence. S Budda Baker (knee) is active for Sunday's home game against Detroit.
