Fantasy Football Player Notes

2021 Half PPR Rest of Season Rankings

James Conner Note

Conner didn't erupt in Week 10 against the Panthers, likely because the Arizona offense played so poorly without Kyler Murray. This gives us a bit of a "post hype" buying opportunity. Conner's usage remained consistent with his monstrous Week 9 (68% RB rush share to 63%, 19% target share to 14%). He's still a high-end RB2, if not a RB1, until Chase Edmonds (ankle) returns.

Marquise Brown Note

The midseason conversation surrounding Brown was about whether or not he had become a set-and-forget WR1. Unfortunately, he has since been held to 55 yards or less in four straight games. "Hollywood" has still seen hefty target totals during this time, but Baltimore's passing offense has been out of sorts since defenses started blitzing Lamar Jackson more. Now Jackson could be hurt. Brown is suddenly a volatile WR2/3 for the fantasy playoffs.

Kyler Murray Note

Murray's production was down from Weeks 3-5, but he came roaring back in Week 6. Arizona has been playing so efficiently this season, on both sides of the ball, that Murray hasn't had to air it out as often as he did in the Minnesota game back in Week 2. However, the combination of a high-end aerial attack with designed rushes and scrambles is there. Murray will have some eruption games if-and-when the Cardinals face more competitive game scripts.

Zach Ertz Note

With DeAndre Hopkins finally back in the mix, Ertz caught just one pass against the Bears in Week 13. Arizona has so many mouths to feed that it's going to be tough for Ertz to be a consistent fantasy presence moving forward. Consider him a volatile TE2 for now.

A.J. Green Note

The 33-year-old ranks second on the Cardinals in routes and targets, which gives him weekly FLEX viability as we approach a plethora of bye weeks. There likely isn't a ton of upside here, and Arizona has several mouths to feed, but Green is beating his draft day ADP so far.

Rondale Moore Note

Through five weeks it doesn't seem as if the Cardinals want to utilize Moore as a full-time player. However, he's simply electric with the ball in his hands; and as we learned on Sunday, at hauling in toe-tapping sideline catches. The rookie totaled 97 combined rushing and receiving yards in Week 5. The usage might be volatile for now, but as a first year player that will hopefully change as the season moves along. Investing in Moore now is simply a bet on talent.
