Arizona Cardinals

NFC West

Kenyan Drake signs tender offer with the Cardinals. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Drake was transition tagged by the Cardinals earlier in the week, and now he officially signed the tender offer. The details of the offer are unclear at this time, but he will be back with Arizona in 2020. Drake logged 123 carries for 643 yards and eight touchdowns across eight games for the Cardinals last season. Arizona dealt running back David Johnson this offseason, giving Drake the starting running back duties all to himself. The 26-year-old is a borderline RB1 going into 2020 fantasy drafts.

The Carolina Panthers announced on Twitter that they have agreed to one-year deal with wide receiver/return specialist Pharaoh Cooper. (Source: Carolina Panthers on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: By adding Pharaoh Cooper, the Panthers continue to add depth to the wide receiving core, while improving their special team’s return game. Cooper had a career year last season playing 13 games (one game for the Bengals and the final 12 games with the Cardinals). Cooper produced 25 receptions for 243 yards and one touch down. Where Cooper made his mark was in the return game. He returned 25 kickoffs for 543 yards and 17 punts for 129 yards. If you’re in a deep league that has return yards stats, Cooper might be worth a speculative add or place him on the watch list for now.

Fantasy Impact: Byrd spent 2019 with the Cardinals, catching 32 passes in 11 games. The 27-year-old isn't expected to make a fantasy impact in New England. It's unclear who his quarterback will even be right now.

The Arizona Cardinals have traded running back David Johnson and a second round pick to the Houston Texans in exchange for DeAndre Hopkins and a fourth round pick, according to a report from NFL insider Adam Schefter. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Johnson was rumored to be a target of the Texans earlier in the day, and trade rumors picked up after the Cardinals placed the transition tag on fellow running back Kenyan Drake. Johnson had a down year under a new regime in Arizona, rushing for 345 yards and two touchdowns on 94 carries and catching 36 passes for 370 yards and four touchdowns. He will get a change of scenery and a chance to start in Houston.


Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has agreed to a one-year deal to return to the Cardinals for his 17th NFL season in 2020, according to multiple reports. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Despite his advancing age, Fitzgerald is still a productive NFL wide receiver, especially in the Kliff Kingsbury's pass-heavy offense in Arizona. In 2019, he caught 75 of his 109 targets for 804 yards and four touchdowns.

Budda Baker ended Sunday’s 31-24 loss to the Rams with 13 tackles (eight solo), and 0.5 sacks.

Fantasy Impact: Baker finishes 2019 second on the team in tackles with 147. He should be viewed as an S1 in all leagues.

Zane Gonzalez made 3-of-3 PATs as well as his only field goal try in the Cardinals' 31-24 Week 17 loss to the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Gonzalez was plenty useful in fantasy this season. With Kyler Murray leading the way that'll likely continue come 2020.

The Arizona Cardinals D/ST gave up 31 points in the team's Week 17 loss to the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: The defense registered just one sack and zero turnovers. The Cardinals' defense was one to avoid in 2019. We don't expect them to take a major step forward come 2020.

Maxx Williams caught his only target for 23 yards in the Cardinals' 31-24 Week 17 loss to the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: Williams finishes the season with 15 receptions and one touchdown. He wasn't a fantasy factor at all this year.

Category: Game Recaps


Christian Kirk caught 7-of-10 targets for 60 yards in Arizona's 31-24 Week 17 loss to the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: It's a nice bounce-back game from Week 16 where Kirk failed to catch any of his five targets. The 23-year-old finishes his second season with 68 catches, 729 yards, and three touchdowns. Incredibly, all three of those TDs came in a Week 10 game against the Bucs. The Cardinals showed enough offensive promise this season to make Kirk an upside fantasy selection heading into 2020.

Kyler Murray completed 26-of-42 passes for 325 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Cardinals' 31-24 Week 17 loss to the Rams.

Fantasy Impact: He rushed twice for no gain. Murray's 325 passing yards today were the third most of his rookie season. He finishes the 2019 campaign with 20 passing scores and 12 interceptions. Ultimately it was an up-and-down season for the former Heisman winner, but he should be considered a QB1 heading into 2020 fantasy drafts.

Chandler Jones finished Sunday’s 27-13 win over the Seahawks with six tackles (four solo), four sacks, and two forced fumbles.

Fantasy Impact: Jones has been a mad man this season totaling 19 sacks, eight forced fumbles, and 51 tackles through Week 16. He is an LB1 in most IDP leagues moving into the 2020 season.

Category: Game Recaps


Brett Hundley completed 4-of-9 passes for 49 yards in the Cardinals' Week 16 win over the Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact: He also rushed six times for 35 yards. Hundley replaced Kyler Murray (hamstring) in this one and it's unclear if the number-one pick from April's draft will be able to play in Week 17. That would give Hundley the start against the Los Angeles Rams.

Arizona Cardinals tight end Charles Clay hauled in one of his two targets for 18 yards receiving against the Cleveland Browns in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact: Clay led the position in targets, but saw recently added Dan Arnold find the end zone on Kyler Murray's lone passing touchdown of Week 15. No longer a base four wide team, the Cardinals had Clay on the field for 70 percent of the snaps. Maxx Williams played 66 percent. The increased snaps are great, but Clay is simply not being targeted enough to trust in Week 16 outside of the absolute deepest tight end premium leagues.

Patrick Peterson ended Sunday’s 38-24 win over the Browns with seven solo tackles and an interception.

Fantasy Impact: Peterson has 43 tackles, two interceptions, one sack, and a forced fumble through Week 15. He can be left on waivers in most leagues.

Category: Game Recaps


Chase Edmonds didn't receive a touch in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact: Kenyan Drake is the lead back with David Johnson backing him up at the moment. Edmonds can be safely dropped in re-draft fantasy leagues.

Category: Game Recaps


Jordan Hicks ended Sunday’s loss to San Francisco with 12 total tackles (eight solo), one sack, and one interception.

Fantasy Impact: Hicks leads all Cardinals in tackles with 111 through Week 11. Since the Cardinals are on Bye in Week 12, fantasy owners should look to see if any Falcons Line Backers are available for a Week 12 replacement.

Andy Isabella hauled in three passes for 78 yards in the Cardinals' 30-27 Week 10 loss to the Bucs.

Fantasy Impact: Isabella was able to parlay last week's 88-yard touchdown into more playing time against the Bucs. His three receptions and three targets were season-highs. Still, he's best viewed as a dynasty asset right now.

Category: Game Recaps


KeeSean Johnson hauled in 2-of-3 targets for 22 yards and a score in the Cardinals' Week 9 loss to the 49ers.

Fantasy Impact: It was his first career touchdown. Johnson is only worth rostering in dynasty leagues right now.

Zach Zenner rushed once for no gain and caught a 13-yard pass in the Cardinals' Week 8 loss to the Saints.

Fantasy Impact: Zenner was filling in for Chase Edmonds (hamstring) but saw just 13 snaps. It's possible Zenner could get the start in Week 9 if David Johnson (back, ankle) isn't able to play either. However, the Cardinals are facing the 49ers on short rest, which is a brutal matchup.
