Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 Draft Rankings
DeAndre Hopkins Note

Moving to a new team/offense is never an easy thing to do, especially when you don't get to have an offseason with your new team. Still, you don't trade for someone like Hopkins to not target him like a true No. 1 wide receiver. With Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk in the lineup, it may be hard for him to reach the 150-target mark like he consistently did with the Texans, but Hopkins has shown the ability to be efficient with practically every quarterback he's played with. Still, it drops him just outside the elite tier of Thomas, Adams, and Jones.

Kenyan Drake Note

Drake plays in a fast-paced offense which will run 17 or 18 games worth of plays this season. That comes in handy from a fantasy football perspective, as his volume is sure to be higher than most others at the position. Not only that, but Drake was spectacular from the time he landed on the Cardinals, finishing the season as the #4 fantasy back over the final eight weeks despite not knowing the playbook when he came over. Add DeAndre Hopkins and an improved offensive line to this offense and Drake could explode into the top tier of fantasy backs.

Kyler Murray Note

Kyler finished as the #7 fantasy QB last year as a rookie despite an unsustainably low 3.7% TD-rate. You can expect that to jump this season, as should his volume both on the ground and in the air. Add in one of the league's best receivers in DeAndre Hopkins and it is challenging to imagine Murray finishing lower than last season unless he suffers an injury of some sort.

Christian Kirk Note

Kirk went from someone who was set to have a massive amount of targets come his way once Larry Fitzgerald retired, but now that he's announced his return, and the team has traded for DeAndre Hopkins, Kirk suddenly might be stuck as a fringe fantasy option. Kirk did see 107 targets in just 13 games last year, and it's not like Fitzgerald is getting any younger/better. You don't want to write him off completely, but he fits in more as a low-end WR3/high-end WR4 in 2020.

Chase Edmonds Note

Edmonds has flashed ability at times but hasn't quite had the opportunity to showcase his ability as a three-down capable back. He isn't expected to have a huge role in Arizona this season, but if Kenyan Drake were to deal with an injury, Edmonds would have week-winning upside in this offense.

Larry Fitzgerald Note

We knew that Christian Kirk had surpassed Fitzgerald as the No. 1 option in the offense, but he's now down to the No. 3 option with the arrival of Deandre Hopkins. Now 37 years old, it's going to be tough to find a place for Fitzgerald in fantasy. He failed to top 56 yards in each of the Cardinals final 10 games, and that was without Hopkins.

Zane Gonzalez Note

Gonzalez finished as the fifth-best kicker in fantasy last year, buoyed by his 35 attempts. He also hit nearly 89% of his attempts, a number inflated by the fact that the vast majority of his chances (25) came inside 40 yards. The Cardinals should have a strong offense this season, again offering Gonzalez plenty of opportunities and the chance to finish as a top-12 kicker in fantasy.

Andy Isabella Note

Isabella saw just 13 targets last season after being selected in the second round of the draft, and would have potentially been considered a breakout candidate in deeper leagues heading into the year. Unfortunately, with the addition of DeAndre Hopkins and the return of Larry Fitzgerald, it will be nearly impossible for Isabella to return any value this season. In dynasty leagues, he's worth holding onto, but ignore him for redraft purposes.
